Meditation on 2 Samuel 22

“This God – his way is perfect…”

All around me and inside me I see imperfection, things left undone, words I shouldn’t have said. Every action, thought, word of God is perfection. There are no doubts, no mistakes in him.

“…the word of the Lord proves true…”

It’s not just that the word is true, but that it proves true. God has shown over and over that he will do what he says. Why do I think I am an exception to him fulfilling his promises? God speaks and will perform all his word. Ezekiel 12:25-28

“…he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.”

He is a shield for those who do what? Take refuge. If you stand in front of the shield, you will not be protected. Hide yourself behind the shield. Hide yourself in him.

“For who is God but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?”

He alone is God. He alone is an unshakeable, unmoveable, unbreakable rock.

“This God is my strong refuge and has made my way blameless.”

I like the use of the word, this. Look here, behold, this God. Not that god, but this God, is my place of safety. He makes my way blameless.

Jude 24-25….

“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before his presence with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
