Confidence in a Storm

Psalm 18 reminds us of God’s faithfulness.

It is no secret our journey through life will encounter storms. Things may be going well to suddenly be derailed by events and actions that are out of our control. David was no stranger to life being derailed.

The Bible’s biography of David reveals a turbulent life filled with mistakes, yet the Lord remained faithful to David. People turned against David, but the Lord did not. David made stupid mistakes, but the Lord stayed true. In Psalm 18, David reflects on the Lord’s faithfulness and goodness.

Psalm 18:30 says, “God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.”

Here are 3 take-aways from Psalm 18:30.

God’s way is the best way.

It may not always seem like the best approach, but if God is leading, he will always take the best way. He will always make arrangements for things to work out.

Remember, he arranged for a great fish to swallow Jonah and help him travel to where God wanted him.

God’s promises prove true.

The Lord keeps his promises. He has never made a promise he does not intend to keep. On the night of Jesus’ birth, the shepherds found everything the way they were told it would be. The Bible records many instances of the Lord sending someone on a journey with a promise, and the individual found the promise to be true.

You and I have been made promises by the Lord, and we will find each of them to be true.

God is a shield of protection.

God offers us protection.

Psalm 18 says, “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.”

Life may lead us into storms, but the Lord will always be with us. Amid the storm, remember the words of Psalm 18.
