The Lord’s Goodness and Love Follows You – Psalm 23

Surely Your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life…
Psalm 23:6

The Lord’s Goodness and Love Follows You – Psalm 23:6

Surely Your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord

We all leave our footprints as we walk through this journey of life. Unfortunately, some of our footprints are unclean, left behind from walking in places we should not have traveled. These footsteps will have to be cleaned up because they do not belong on the path of righteousness.

God wants to lead us in the right direction. He desires for us to travel along the narrow path so that all will go well with us; so that we will eventually arrive at the Promised Land. When we live according to the will of God — according to His commands, laws and precepts — our footsteps are followed by the Lord’s goodness. When we lose our way, with faith and humility, His loving mercy will gently lead us back again. He will clean up those footsteps that had gone astray. So today, thank God for the grace that follows you, guides you and protects you. It is by this same grace that will allow you to one day dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Heavenly Father, we want to dwell in Your House forever. We trust in Your love and mercy that guides our footsteps every day of our lives. Allow us to hear Your voice and feel Your presence today – before us, behind us, and beside us – and give us the strength and courage to forever follow Your lead. Amen.
