Re:Verse reading—Psalm 23 (day five)
“Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life”. David doesn’t jump to any wild conclusions about God’s care, character, or interaction with His children. Instead, after reflection and careful observation, David becomes convinced of God’s nearness and willingness to constantly supply goodness and mercy. David has considered his own experiences and has held them up against God’s promises. They have matched up perfectly. So, David concludes with certainty and decisiveness (SURELY) that God is eagerly pursuing us to demonstrate His pleasure in doing good and showing mercy.
What conclusions can you make about God and the christian life based on your own experiences and God’s promises?
