Surely goodness and mercy shall  follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23:6

God’s mercy is manifest in the life of David. Even though he was a “man after God’s own heart,” David knew the level of God’s mercy.

Today’s devotion shows me another God’s character, showing His total provision for us. Psalm 23 shows us that mercy follows us all the days of our lives. As we journey through this life, we all have a tendency to fail, to be confused, to fall short. But as Psalm 94:18 points out, When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When we fall, His mercy is there –it follows us and holds us up!

No matter what the circumstances, no matter what the cause, if we are pursuing God’s will for our lives, His mercy will follow us all the days of our lives so when we do fall, it will hold us up!

Father, Your Mercy is unsearchable, yet such a treasured gift! There are so many times I fall short of your glory, at hindi ko nasusunod yung mga naisin Mo para sa akin yet, Your Mercy is there to hold me up and set me back on my journey. Thank you for showing me Mercy when I deserve it the least, and thank You for reminding me that Mercy has everything to do with You, nothing whatsoever to do with me, what I do, where I go, or who I am, for I am nothing, absolutely nothing without You!

Father God, be exalted above the Heaven and earth! For Your mercy is great and incomparable. Thank you for pursuing me, chasing me and following me through Your goodness and mercy. You are the God who is not hard to find. Don’t give up on me until the day that I will dwell in You forever. In Jesus Name Amen.

 

Your sweetest Melody, ❤
