“Surely your goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
We can know with “certainty” (no doubt) that the goodness and mercy of God will follow us all the days of our lives. This does not mean that nothing bad or tragic will ever happen to us, but because of His goodness—that endures forever—we can survive and arise every time we get knocked down, stronger each time, knowing God has our back (following can only come from behind). His mercy—favor that we cannot earn—paired with His goodness is a guarantee that no weapon formed against shall prosper. Every word of God will accomplish that which it set out to do and we can know—the battle is not ours, but The Lord’s and we are victorious!
Once we know that we are victorious in all things through Jesus Christ, we can live with the assurance that we have access into heaven where we shall spend eternity when our time on earth, in this realm is at an end. Blessed are those who hear The Word and keep it upon their hearts all the days of their lives.
We must read and study The Word, hear and believe The Word, and then do The Word so that no one who sees us can ever say; they did not have an opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since we are His ambassadors, our conduct and behavior should be a reflection of who He is.
Glory to God for The Good Shepherd who leads us in all things to His glory!
