The Goodness and Mercy of God

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

Grace And Peace Family,

Psalm 23 is a ‘sweet’ Psalm of dependence on God, but it is also a real Psalm by someone who has proven the closeness and comfort of God.

David’s confident affirmation that ‘surely’ goodness and mercy shall follow him all the days of his life’ seems to come from a revelation of ‘that is what I am living in now and I am anticipating that it will continue’. David had discovered that ‘goodness’ and ‘mercy’ had become the active, present and tangible personification of the presence of the Lord in his life.

Better yet, He’s not just with us, He has the power to act: His rod and His staff are in tow. Not only is God our companion in the valley enabling us to keep walking and facing what we might not be able to alone, but He has the tools to step in and help us too. as we see in Psalm 23, God is with us. We’re not alone as we feel the fear of the unknown – we have Almighty God by our side.
