Goodness and Mercy Shall Follow You

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life and I willl dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6

goodness and mercyWhat a wonderful and very encouraging promise to be reminded of. The 23rd Psalm is a picture of God who is so immense and powerful yet so personal and caring.

The realities in this life may be cruel. It’s no wonder why many people go through bouts of depression. Even Christians are not spared by difficult circumstances.  Who would be excited to hear news like “you have cancer”, or “you’re fired”? Your bills are piling up and your finances are at record low. And the list goes on and on …

Yet in all these, we have God who is our Shepherd. He is our Provider, Guide, Protector, Defender, Companion just as the Psalm tells us. The very last verse is a seal of guarantee that from today until forever, God’s goodness and mercy will pursue us. God’s love will follow us relentlessly no matter what.
