God strengthens, protects, and guides us. He doesn’t promise to eliminate challenges, instead, He promises to give us strength to meet those challenges. “God’s way is perfect.. Often we make our own choices and decisions based on our will and desires, and then expect God to make up the difference of our inability or faithlessness, but that is not how this relationship works. God moves in response to our faith. Our faith is in God based on who He is not who we want Him to be at that moment.
“God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength and he makes my way perfect. He makes me as surefooted as a deer enabling me to stand on mountain heights.” Psalm 18:30-33
When driven by desperation and fear, our pursuit of God is void of faith and therefore ineffective. Our trust is faulty. In that moment, when leaping out in faith, we are not trusting God but avoiding His Plan.
God’s Way will not be changed by our impatience or dissatisfaction. On the contrary, it will only hinder the blessing that God has waiting for His People. The journey is longer when people try their way first and then God’s. God’s Promise is not to make our way straight but He enables us to travel His Pathways to perfection. As our rescuer, all God is required to do is save us in our fall. The pain and devastation of the process is not always avoided. The humiliation of failure is not spared. God just promises to pick us up and set our feet on the rock once more.
So Why would you desire less than God’s Best today, His ways are perfect. It is waiting for you today along with every other Promise of God. We must do our best to follow God’s Way. He knows our imperfection. God is patient with those who love Him. He is our shield of protection when we try and fail. God strengthens the righteous to keep going when the road is long and weary. His chosen destination for His People is perfection, the very thing we strive for on the road to compromise only to become discouraged, disappointed and distressed. God will not lower His standards, but He will help you get to where He is. You can do all God said that you can do and be all that He said you can be, but it begins by heading in the right direction. Make obedience your pathway today. Choose good over evil and maintain your heading. Do not give up or give in to pride, but rather reach for Jesus and let Him be your strength. Enjoy every single Promise of God for your life.
