I love reading the 23rd Psalm. It gives me comfort and contentment to know that my God has everything in HIS control, even my Goodness and Mercy. Now the bible says, "Goodness and mercy will pursue" me and you all the days of our life. That's what the word "follow" literally means in Psalm 23:6---to "Pursue". Jesus pursued you with His call of salvation, and He will continue to pursue you. His goodness and mercy are like two sheep dogs that follow the flock to assure there is a safe journey to the Shepherd's final destination. Now, may I ask, How many times have you questioned God's provision in your life and wondered if He really cared for you? Well, there's no question here. It says surely, not hopefully. Yes, you and I will stumble, but He will pick us up.
How would you live differently today if you "really knew" that grace and mercy were going to follow your every step? How would you treat others?
