Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
While as humans we are riddled with imperfections, God is perfect in all his ways. Psalms 18:30 identifies two areas in which God is perfect. Firstly, it says that His way is perfect. The way of God refers to His character and actions. What the scripture wants us to know is that there is no blemish in the character of God. In other words, there are no elements of His character that need improvement, he is perfect as He is.
In addition, there is no need for Him to change any bad habits. How do we know that this is true? The testimony of the angels says it all, they spend the most time around God and would know Him far better than all of us. Their testimony of Him is that he is holy, holy, holy and the reason that is all they say is because when they see God ,that is all they see. Their reference to God as holy is an acknowledgement that he is not only free of sin, but also that there is no blemish in His character or error in His actions.
The second area in which God is perfect is as it relates to His words. The scripture tells us that the word of the Lord is tried; that means that it has been tested and proven to be true and it works. Numbers 23:19 says that “God is not a man, that he should lie”; His words are perfect because every word that He speaks is true.
Another reason His words are perfect is because they have proven to work in every situation that it is applied to. In John 2 at the wedding at Cana, the word of God worked, and the water was turned into wine. Also, it was because the word of God worked that the Jericho wall came falling down and the Red Sea was parted. The conclusion that we can draw is that not only is God perfect in all his ways, but His word is perfect for every situation.
Life Application: Since God is perfect in all His ways, choose to emulate His ways and apply His word to your every situation.
Prayer: Lord, you are absolutely perfect in all your ways. There is no imperfection in you. Help me to emulate your ways and be more like you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
