God’s Goodness Is Following You

 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever” (Psalm 23:6). What’s following you through life? Is it a cloud of doom? Is it trouble and problems? Woe is me. Like the song on Hee Haw that Buck Owens and Roy Clark sang.

Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Deep, dark depression, excessive misery

If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all

Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Sounds really grim. However, David’s song is different and I hope it’s your song as well. It’s God’s goodness and mercy (grace) that followed him around every day. Are you thinking when you arise in the morning that you are blessed because God’s goodness and favor has your back? Moreover, David was under the Old Covenant. How much more is God’s goodness to us because we are under the New Covenant through the finished work of Jesus? In addition, it’s about God’s goodness in the broadest sense, not limiting His goodness in any way. He does good, because He is good. In the fight between good and evil—God is good.
