As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. Psalms 18:30
Like David, many sons of God are overwhelmed by hard times, and trying moments. They feel as though they are being helmed-in by their circumstances or even persons. As if the walls of life are closing in on them and pressing them hard. I recall at some point in my life, this was exactly the feeling I had, plus I had many questions; I needed many answers; my life was in complete confusion.
What happens when things are not happening as we think they should? When all our plans our crumbling like a pack of cards? David was consistence in his devotion with God; he continued in the way and the word of God for as he testifies, “His way is perfect, The word of the Lord is proven…” This way and word is a shield to all who yield themselves to Him.
To shield ourselves from all our circumstances which bring us but headache and heartache, we need to yield ourselves to “the way” and “the word”. What then is “the way” and “the word”? Jesus in the Gospel of John says the following which has forever left an imprint in the earth, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 (NKJV)
Such remarkable words through which He is says He Jesus is the Way, and the Truth. So we might ask what about the word? Valid question, to that I say, the Truth is the Word. This is again quoted by Jesus Christ “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” . Therefore, Jesus is the Way and the Word that shields from all cares. However, there’s a twist; if we yield ourselves to Him.
How do I yield? Good question. Yielding is submitting yourself to the authority of the Words of Jesus Christ; It is living by His Words and not our knowledge, understanding and human experiences; it is practicing His Word in every area of your life be it your career, business, marriage, etc. Doing what He says and applying His principles.
His Way and Word is the way out of stress and depression. This is the way of Peace and Joy. Are you going through stuff? Stop focusing on your circumstances, focus on Jesus Christ; follow His Way and His Words; live the Truth and be free!
