“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” – Psalm 23:6a NKJV
“Our moods may shift, but God doesn’t. Our minds may change, but God doesn’t. Our devotion may falter, but God never does. Even if we are faithless, he is faithful, for he cannot betray himself (2 Timothy 2:13). He is a sure God. And because he is a sure God, we can state confidently, ‘Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.’”
– Max Lucado, “Traveling Light”
“He looks on my life in tenderness, for He loves me deeply. He sees the long years during which His goodness and mercy have followed me without slackening. He longs to see some measure of that same goodness and mercy not only passed on to others by me but also passed back to Him with joy.”
– W. Phillip Keller, “A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23”
The path of rich abundance…
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” – Psalm 23:1-6a NKJV
Perfect timing! I was just finishing bfast this am and thinking, “I wonder if Chris will drop a devo this morning?” And then I get the notification.
God bless, brotha!
