Six Cs For Our Life
Description

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."

And I will dwell”: There is some question concerning the form in the Hebrew text (compare also Psalm 27:4). Should it be rendered “I shall return” or “I shall dwell”? Whichever way it is taken, by the grace of his Lord, David is expecting ongoing opportunities of intimate fellowship.

David looks beyond the pasture into the future and is heartened by the glorious prospect of dwelling “forever” with the Lord. The Hebrew expression forever (“the length of days”), describes a reality in the present that continues into the future. David would dwell in God’s house even as he walked along His path on earth.

Goodness and mercy are gifts from God. His mercy endures forever. We see from this, that not only do we receive them when we are saved, but they remain with us forever. Dwell means continually live. One of the greatest promises to all believers is found in the following Scriptures.

John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." "In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I Go to prepare a place for you." "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also."

Notice also, that this place for all believers is a place of abiding (for ever).
