“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life”
Have you ever been taking a walk only to discover that a lonely dog has decided to join you? No matter what you do it continues to follow wherever you go. When you run, it runs, if you stop, it stops. No matter what you do it faithfully keeps pace following you.
Today’s verse let us know about two faithful traveling companions that follow us on life’s journey. They are goodness and mercy and they’re unquestionably behind us every step of the way. We can’t outrun them and neither can we stop them from pursuing us every day of our lives.
Now, when we understand what’s following us there will be no need to keep looking back over our past to see what’s there. Goodness and mercy are! They’re able to keep pace with us our whole life. Whenever we need to lean on them, they are there, ready and able to support us.This week let’s look forward to the future and let go of the past. Goodness and mercy have got our backs so we’re free to advance confidently into our tomorrow. With 2 such valuable travelling companions supporting us we’ll never be alone. We can walk, run and sprint into our future and they will be right behind us. Life will be good and we’ll be setup for a victory far beyond what we could ever ask or think.
