God’s Love Is Always with You BY RICK WARREN — APRIL 30, Saturday

“Surely your … unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life” (Psalm 23:6a NLT, second edition).
Like goodness, God’s unfailing love follows us in life.
King David says it pursues us! Picture a parent following a little kid around and picking up after the child. When we’re struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups, God comes right alongside us, helping to pick up our messes and telling us that his unfailing love is always there.
This means that, rather than entering the future with a question mark, you can do it with an exclamation point! God will be with you no matter what happens. He will help you out: “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6 NLT, second edition).
Goodness is the fact that God gives us good things in life that we don’t deserve. Mercy means God holds back the condemnation we deserve.
Remember this:
  • God’s goodness will provide and protect.
  • God’s mercy (unfailing love) will pardon and forgive.
  • God’s goodness will supply.
  • God’s mercy will soothe.
  • God’s goodness will help.
  • God’s mercy and love will heal. 
You can count on it!
Talk It Over
  • What big dream would you pursue if you fully believed God’s goodness and love were pursuing you every day of your life?
  • What does it mean to you to enter the future with an exclamation point?
  • How can you share with others about God’s goodness to you and his same offer to them?
