Psalm 23:6 says “Why would I fear the future? For I am being pursued only by your goodness and unfailing love.”
That’s a good question. Why DO we fear the future? Is it because of the uncertainty of it? Is because we cannot control it? I think yes and yes.
But this verse asks us why we fear the future, because we are only pursued by God’s goodness and unfailing love. Sometimes in our lives, we may feel like God’s goodness has passed over us, like He may have forgotten to send a little goodness our way. Are you still alive? Are you wearing clothes? Are you living under a roof? Then God is good. And even if none of those things are true, God is still good. You are pursued by God’s unfailing love, which means that no matter what you do in this life, no matter how many mistakes you make or how big your sins, He still loves you.
Now THAT is unfailing love.
