Goodness and mercy

Goodness and mercy
Psalm 23:6
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
So why would I fear the future? For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life. Then afterward, when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!
Psalm 139:3
O give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His mercy endureth for ever;
Give thanks to the Lord over all lords! His tender love for us continues on forever!

Looking at the above verses we understand that God longs to bless His children as long as we live and forever.  God's love for us never ceases.  He has given us a treasure trove of promises in His word. He said in Jeremiah I know the plans I have for you.  Plans to give you a future you hope for.  We need to wield our Bible as a weapon against the enemy of our souls. Ephesians outlines the armor of God. Taking the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.  Every time we face a problem we need to seek out a promise and use the word as a weapon against the attack coming against us.  God wants us victorious in our lives and has equipped us with the arsenal to win.  Sometimes the enemy blinds us against God's goodness and mercy. God is good and His love endures forever. Let us keep in mind the goodness and mercy of God. Let us always remember that nothing compares to God's love for us. No one ever could love us as much as Jesus loves us. We need to keep that in mind in all we do and never forget it. Thank you Lord for your goodness and mercy being in hot pursuit of our lives. Thank you Lord for letting us dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Amen.
