PSALM 18:30 AMP

http://bible.com/1588/psa.18.30.AMP

Now looking back to verse 21 of Psalm 18

For I have kept the ways of the Lord , And have not wickedly departed from my God. 

For all His ordinances were before me, And I did not put away His statutes from me.

 I was blameless before Him, And I kept myself free from my sin. 

Therefore the Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness (moral character, spiritual integrity), According to the cleanness of my hands in His sight. With the kind (merciful, faithful, loyal) You show Yourself kind, With the blameless You show Yourself blameless, With the pure You show Yourself pure, And with the crooked You show Yourself astute. 

(Note, ALL that is directed to God)

For You save an afflicted and humble people, But bring down those [arrogant fools] with haughty eyes. For You cause my lamp to be lighted and to shine; 

The Lord my God illumines my darkness. For by You I can crush a troop, And by my God I can leap over a wall.

(Note, like superman because serve a Supernatural God)

 As for God, His way is blameless. The word of the Lord is tested [it is perfect, it is faultless]; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. For who is God, but the Lord ? Or who is a rock, except our God, The God who encircles me with strength And makes my way blameless? 

(Note, HE makes my way blameless, no of or on my own but by & through Him)

He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly and tread safely on paths of testing and trouble]; He sets me [securely] upon my high places. 

He trains my hands for war, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 

You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds and sustains me; 

(Note, again, ALL the Lord’s doing)

Your gentleness [Your gracious response when I pray] makes me great.

 You enlarge the path beneath me and make my steps secure, So that my feet will not slip.

PSALM 18:21‭-‬36 AMP

All glory and credit to God, He makes a way.

In Christ, Beetle
