His Blessings Are Forever

In review of Psalm 23:6 it says, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Bottom Line:
His goodness and mercy will follow me in this life and I will be with Him in his house forever.

What this means to me:
As I follow Him, His goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all of the days of my life. Ultimately I will get to dwell with Him directly in His house forever.

Today’s verse ends this short psalm and summarize what God does and grants me. Therefore, the Lord is the one I want to guide and care for me. In Him I have all that I need. He lets me rest in peace, near pleasant green meadows and streams. He renews my strength when I need it. He will guide me along the right path, one that will bring honor to his name if I follow it. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for He is always close beside me. His rod and His staff protect and comfort me. He even prepares a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. He honors me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with His blessings. Surely His goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all of my days, and ultimately I will live in His house forever.

His favor is not temporary. His goodness and mercy will follow me through the rest of my life. While things may not always be going great, and secretly I worry about whether God’s goodness will run out, His Word assures me that He will never forget or forsake me. Afterall I’m told that God has great things planned for me, so great that I can’t even grasp it.  As I reflect back on my life, I see the fruits of his blessings.

So given this, I can rest with unspeakable joy, for a harvest of goodness is mine because of His divine favor. God can see into the future and my destiny that He has created just for me. He is so excited about my tomorrow that all of heaven is celebrating the good things that are getting ready to take place in my life.

So if my miracle doesn’t come through by noon today, I can take heart. His favor is for life, and His blessings are on the way!
