"As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those who trust in him" (Psalm 18:30). The Lord spoke to my heart as I read this verse. According to verse 30, His way is His word.


This word perfect means to be entire, whole, and without blemish. The word of the Lord is sound and undefiled. The word of the Lord will also stand forever and is a sure foundation for all of life.


The Psalmist goes on to say in verse 32, "He makes my way perfect." Not only is God and His way perfect but He declares that He will make all of your ways whole (perfect).


Let me encourage you to bring all your ways before the Lord, and believe and trust Him for His fulness. Remember this: "It is God that girds me with strength and makes my way perfect."


I pray for you to receive an answer to all your prayers prayed in faith. The Lord is a rewarder of all those who diligently seek after Him. The Lord loves to open the windows of heaven and release His blessings!

Please meditate on the following verses concerning the words of your mouth...

Proverbs 13:2, 3 "A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction."

Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones."

Proverbs 18:21 "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."

Proverbs 21:23 "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles."

We as believers must learn to lean our entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus. This must be done with absolute truth and confidence in His power, wisdom and His goodness.

Many of us can walk in greater peace if we will stop talking in such a negative fashion. Often times we hear people saying destructive words such as, "This is driving me crazy," or "I think I'm losing my mind!"  


As we say any negative words, we're opening ourselves to trouble. James 3:2 says that we can control our whole body if we will not offend in word. We need to understand that the speech center is located in the brain and the brain sends out our words to every nerve in our body.

 

Please meditate on the following verses concerning the words of your mouth...

 

Proverbs 10:11, 32 - "The mouth of the righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked."

 

Proverbs 12:13,14,18,22 - "The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble. A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him. There is that speaketh like the piercing of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight."
