#5326 – God Follows Us

Good morning people who are led by God and followed by God.

Psalms 23:6 NIV Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

When we talk about God’s presence and work in our lives, our focus is normally on God leading us, and indeed, this is absolutely true and essential.

Where God leads, we are blessed!

But for the first time, I see that God’s goodness and love also follow us all the days of our life! PRAISE GOD!

This reminds me of the following verse that is so beautiful and powerful:

Psalms 139:5-6 NIV You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

God is always with us, and this includes going before us and following up as our rear guard:

Isaiah 52:12 NIV But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

If anyone asks you, “Who’s got your back?”, the answer is, “The Lord God Almighty has my back!”
