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
How easy it is to backslide from truth when the things
of life cut into us. How hard it is to hold onto the
invisible when the visible is in your face. How can I
say, 'Only goodness and loving kindness will pursue
me all the days of my life,' when my world rocks and
my heart fails me? Ah, my heart fails me. But of
course, I have taken my eyes off of my Savior and
placed them on the waves of circumstances.
'God help me!'
If I do not immediately return to the foundation of
truth, I will be swept away by a lie.
One truth is foundational. No matter what God allows
in my life, He is the One who stands at the place of
'joyous bountiful gracious favor towards me' and in
the 'kindness of His strong affection and tender regard
for me.' I am loved.
How great is our invisible God!
