POWER TO MAKE YOUR WAY PERFECT

"God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect." 
(2 Samuel 22:33)

What is being spoken to me about power?

  1. In my opinion, power in this verse is shown as an ongoing thing. What I mean by that is this: David uses the word "maketh" which is in the present tense. Unlike mankind who gets tired and worn out, God's power makes and will continue to make our ways perfect until we die. What a beautiful assurance! The writer of this verse obviously relied heavily on God for many things. I see a great sense of trust being shown towards God by David. I know that men today are slow to relinquish control, so I can only imagine how hard it must have been to do so back then during David's day. David, the great king, giving up his power and control in exchange for God's? I see David looking back on his life as a young boy, as a harp player for King Saul, as the slayer of Goliath, as a hunted man, as King, as an adulterer, as a murderer, as one who understood losing a child, one with family issues, and finally as an old man. Through all of his life, I see him coming to a wonderful conclusion about power and those responsible enough to have it. He states it well saying, "he maketh my way perfect." Not David, but God makes David's way perfect; He has true power and He is able to handle that power better than David could have ever dreamed.
    We have to do like David did. We must relinquish control. Not because God is trying to be a boss, but because God truly knows how to handle our situations better than we can. Earlier on in this chapter, David shows us that he didn't blindly trust God;instead, it says "The word of the Lord is PROVEN" (v.31). David tested God's power throughout his life, and God never left David feeling ashamed or embarrassed.

    1. Nice Kristel, God is definitely the waymaker! It is definitely through His power that David had a testimony!

  2. That power God gives is to make us trust in his way more; because if we don't give it to him we will get off the path that he's made for us.

  3. It lets me know that without God I can do nothing on my own accord. Trusting in Him to follow Him daily He will may all my directions perfect for the outcomes to come out right. In my weakness He is my strength and my power.

  4. Without God, I have no power, stength or way.

  5. What is being spoken to me about power is that because God's way is perfect, He is well able to make my way perfect. God's name here means strength, this is Almighty God that is being spoken of. He is the stronghold that I should place my trust in. He causes the way that I go to be complete; with Him things are always going to be alright. He has the power to direct my course, so I should stick with Him, especially when I don't know what way I should be going.

  6. This scripture shows me that Power is God manifested in me since God is power. I have strength (a fortified place, a defense, a stronghold) in God. I have power (wealth, army, virtue, valor) because of God. God will make my way perfect, He's just that "powerful."
