A PRAYERFUL WALK THROUGH PSALM 23
English Standard Version (ESV) 6a Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
PAUSE FOR THOUGHT: Many commentaries liken these twin guardians to actual Angels. Now, how all of us Christians get these 2 angels is beyond me? Maybe it’s the wibbley wobbley timey wimmey stuff Doctor Who talks about? LOL! Nevertheless, it’s a nice thought that I’m accompanied by goodness and mercy or as some translations put it kindness and loving goodness. I’m going to believe that I have 2 Angels called kindness and mercy as my body guards. Sounds crazy, but I guess I am! LOL! Notice as well ‘ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE!’ Not just the good days! Not just Church days! But all the days! Good and bad, high and low, tough and easy, days of plenty and lack, sweet as well as sour.
PRAYER Gracious loving God, I thank you for your loving kindness and mercy to me. I so need these two awesome virtues as most days there’s a great lack of both in this world and that could be so discouraging; but these two mighty Angels are always there to bolster me up and reinforce me with your support. Thank you that they faithfully follow me every day, the good days as well as the bad. Amen
