They way of the Lord is perfect

This God—his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord proves true; – Psalm 18:30

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless.  The phrase, the way of God, is not here taken for his revealed will, but for his method of dealing towards his people.  The meaning, therefore ,  is that God never disappoints or deceives his servants, nor forsakes them in the time of need, (as may be the case with men who do not aid their dependents, except in so far as it contributes to their own particular advantage,) but faithfully defends and maintains those whom he has once taken under his protection.  But we will never have any nearness to God unless he first comes near to us by his word; and, for this reason, David, after having asserted that God aids his people in good earnest, adds, at the same time, that his word is purified. Let us, therefore rest assured that God will actually show himself upright towards us, seeing he has promised to be the guardian and protector of our welfare, and his promise is certain and in fallible truth. – John Calvin
