Goodness and Mercy / The Twenty-Third Psalm

From the archives of Oral RobertsEighth of eight parts

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

A good shepherd never leaves his sheep. At the end of the day, he calls them into the fold one by one. After they are all accounted for, he lies down at the door and personally keeps them safe.

God cares and provides for us as surely as a shepherd cares for his sheep because He is “the GOOD shepherd” (John 10:11˗14).

Somewhere people have gotten the idea that everything bad that happens is an act of God. For example, if you’re sick, God made you sick. But the Bible talks about God’s goodness. James 1:17 says, Every good gift… cometh… from the Father. And Psalm 23:6 says, Goodness… shall follow me all the days of my life. Goodness and mercy surrounds us because the Good Shepherd is always near.

This verse reminds us that the Lord, our Shepherd, is going to be with us always. He has forgiven our sins of the past. He is with us today. And we don’t have any fear of the future because we’re going to dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
