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.
God’s goodness will provide and protect.
God’s mercy (unfailing love) will pardon and forgive.
