Understanding God's Unfailing Love

In summary of Psalms 23:6 it says, “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.”

Bottom Line:
We can be certain that goodness and unfailing love will follow us all of the days of our lives and we will dwell with him forever.

What this means to me:
I can hold onto the promise that God’s goodness and unfailing love will be with me all the days of my life.  Furthermore, I will live in his house forever.  This is an important thing to grasp; God’s goodness and unfailing love follows me all throughout my life.  The NLT version adds that it will pursue me. This means that as I struggle with habits, hang-ups and hurts, God is coming right alongside, helping to pick up my mess and reminding me that his unfailing love is always there.  I don’t have to question or second guess this, it is a fact!  God will be with me no matter what happens. As this verse proclaims: "Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever." (Psalm 23:6 NLT), He will be there to help me out.  God's goodness will provide and protect. God's mercy (unfailing love) will pardon and forgive. God's goodness will supply. God's mercy will soothe. God's goodness will help. God's mercy and will heal. This “goodness” means that God gives me good things in life that I don't even deserve. This “mercy” means God holds back the condemnation I really deserve.  In summary, I have God on my side in the future and in eternity.  What a wonderful and comforting thought.
