Psalms 23:6, “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Psalm 23 is probably the most famous Psalm in the entire world.  We all know how it starts out, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”  However, most people by the time they get to the end simply recite the words without really understanding them or the promise they bring.

Today’s passage from Psalm 23 David proclaims, “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life.”  Therefore, take just a few moments to hear the wonderful promise that God is giving all His sheep today.  He is promising that no matter where you go, goodness and love will follow you.

In other words, you cannot out run His love or get so lost that love can’t find you.  Today, you have a powerful promise from your Shepherd that He will always love you and give you the goodness of His will.  You will never face a time in life where God’s love is not present.

Paul went on in the New Testament to say the following about God and His love for you in Romans 8:38-39, “38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

As a result, believe and receive the great love that God has for you.  He promised that His love is with you right now- it followed you from the time you woke up this morning!
