Psalm 18:30 “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”


There is a saying that in life nothing is certain but death and taxes. Whoever came up with that saying did not read our opening text.

Can you imagine being protected by a shield that has been proven to always been perfect? That means it will

holy bible

never fail you no matter what.

Let us begin with the most important of all the things that we have: life and by implication our fear of death.

Psalm 18:4 “The pangs of death surrounded me, and the floods of ungodliness made me afraid.”


Can we trust our lives to the Word of God? Can the Word of God deliver me from fear and angst?


Every person that is born will die someday, for according to God’s Word it is appointed for men to die once, and to be judged after we die.


So that we are all continuously surrounded by the pangs of death and the fear of judgment.


We are conceived and born in sin, so that our natural fear of death resides in the reality that we all fall short of the glory of God.


Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”


How does the Word of God assure me of a pleasant and eternal life after I am dead?


Romans 8:11 “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”


How can I be sure that He will forgive me since I know that I still fall short of His glory even after He became my Savior?


Romans 8:10 “And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”


The floods of ungodliness made me afraid, the word ungodliness in the original Hebrew text is the word Belial and it means a spirit of worthlessness. When we got saved, the spirit of Belial was replaced by the Spirit of God’s life and righteousness.


Seeing that Jesus paid such a high price for us—His precious blood—we are not worthless anymore. Hallelujah!


Ephesians 2:1-2 “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit (of worthlessness, Belial) who now works in the sons of disobedience.”


There is ample evidence then, that Jesus has redeemed us from the pangs of death, and from the floods of ungodliness that once made us afraid; as it is written: They that call upon the name of the Lord will be saved, redeemed, healed, delivered and restored!


Psalm 18:3 “I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies.”


The word of the Lord is proven.


From the very beginning God gave us His Word of promise, the word proven means to be refined. We know that the Bible was written over a period of fifteen or sixteen centuries, and that some of the original promises were given to mankind thousands of years ago.


In the Garden of Eden God promised that the Seed of the woman would crush the serpents head. God chose Able instead of Cain, after Cain killed Able, God replaced him with Seth, which means appointed, and God continue the promise through the line of Seth to Noah.


From Noah’s three sons, Shem was chosen to be the line from which the Word of the Lord would continue, that is why there is so much anti-Semitism today, for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel from which came the Scriptures, are the descendants of Shem.


The world hates God’s Word, that is why they hate the Semites.


From the line of Shem, Abram was chosen, and God entered into a covenant with him and named him Abraham, although Abraham fathered multiple children, Isaac was chosen to continue the line.


Isaac had two sons, Jacob and Esau, but God continued to refine the line and chose Jacob, who had twelve sons, God chose Judah one of his twelve sons, and said that His Promised One would be called the Lion of the tribe of Judah.


About four thousand years passed from the Garden of Eden, where the promised was first given, to Gethsemane, where the King of Life chose to become the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.


Mortal men had no say as to how such refining would take place, even the wisest of the wise could not understand, or even presume to know, how our Lord would bring about the fulfillment of all His great and precious promises, but He did, praise God He did!


2 Peter 1:17-19 “For He (Jesus) received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”


The odds of one man fulfilling by chance all the promises that God made concerning His Anointed One’s first coming are astronomical, an impossibility to be certain, that is what Peter as an eyewitness is telling us, and he says, you better pay attention to it if you want truth.


There is no doubt whatsoever that the Word of God has been proven, it has been extremely refined and points us to a very precise person, and that person is Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord, who is our perfect shield and our total enlightenment.


Psalm 18:35 “You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great.”


Psalm 18:28 “For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”


Why in the world would someone put their trust in the manmade philosophies of this world which are proven wrong on a daily basis?


Every major prediction that science has made, since they started to make them, are wrong, they do not come true, instead the opposite is what takes place. Man is always proven wrong, that’s a fact of life.


Psalm 18:31 “For who is God, except the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?


For years, since I started to teach from the Word of God, I began to notice how precise God’s predictions are. No matter how impossible a prophesy or a promise may seem at that time, if God said it would be thus, all you have to do is hang around a while and you will see thus.


And what that has done for my life and my faith in the Word of God is amazing. It has transformed my life and the way that I perceive things.


And even that, is what the Word of God promises to those of us who by faith are willing to believe in the certainty of His amazing promises.


Psalm 18:32 “It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.”


In our present state of mortality, our perfection is not revealed in us as a physical reality yet, but rather, as a spiritual certainty that cannot be altered, For He who promised is faithful and will cause it to be so.


I am what I am, not because of who or what I am, but because of who and what He says I am as long as I remain planted in His Word.


Psalm 18:33 “He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places.”


In our last lesson I wrote about the choice that we all have. We can make choices based on the circumstances that surround us, or we can affirm the path that God has ordained for us in the high places, which is speaking about our spiritual journey while on this earth.


Psalm 18:43 “You have delivered me from the strivings of the people; you have made me the head…”


If you can make this verse personal, is an indication that you are walking under the blessings of God to Abraham and His seed, and not under the curses of this world.


Deuteronomy 28:13 “And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only (spiritual path, high places), and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments (and are willing to believe the promises) of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.”


What an exciting reality it is to live in all the promises of God to us.


And they all hinge in this simple act of faith on our part, He who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!


Psalm 18:3 “I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from my enemies.”


If you have not yet made the choice to call upon the Lord, why not make it now? He is the God who never lies, and He is the only God who can deliver you out of the hands of all your enemies.


Is death your enemy? The words of Jesus are Spirit and they are life!


Would you make His Word your life today? If you do give Him praise.


Psalm 18:46 “The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted.”
