Isn 't it such a joy in this verse? Goodness and Mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life. And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

One minister said I look on one shoulder and goodness is following me. I look on the other shoulder and mercy is following me. Thinking about His goodness and mercy to me this morning. Where would we be without Him. God is so good. If you are discouraged today, look up He is here to provide for our every need.

As I was praying this morning, this scripture came to my mind...and I remember thinking, how nice it would be if the KJV online scripture happened to be these verses. Sure enough, when I arrived at work and clicked on the online KJV, one of the verses from this chapter was the featured verse. God knows what we need and He most certainly answers prayers. There is so much joy and peace in Psalms 23. We know that the Lord is our Shepherd and He will never leave us nor forsake us. Trusting in God will lead to everlasting mercy and grace. Thank you Lord for hearing my cries. I know you will make a way for your little ones.

This shows that only with GOD all things are possible.......

The Lord's goodness and mercy shall follow me, tells us that His mercy will always speak for us, when God's mercy begin to speak for you, you get what you are not qualified to get because of His mercy.
His goodness simply mean,you will have good health,everything concerning you will be good,only if you follow Him like a sheep.

if goodness n mercy follows u what else do you fear/want? stay in the way of the lord n all other things shall be added and to you.
Keke's comment on 2013-08-29 12:26:28:
Just cause it says goodness and kindness will follow me does not mean there wont be trials. I thinks some people see this and get confused and start to wonder that if that was so true then why am i in the situation im in. Well im only 18 but i have learned that God puts and allows you to be in certain situations to 1 ready you be for he answers your prayers, or 2 just make u stronger and teach you a lesson. Not exactly because you did something wrong but open your eyes. Things get worse be for the get better you just have to rember in the storm.

23:6;"......and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever." This is in reference to te Shepherd culture, in Davids time the best and perfect lamb was taken inside of the shepherds house, and dwelt there till it was time for it to be sacrificed for the sins of the family, As Christ was Gods perfect lamb, sacrificed for our sins.
This lamb was spot and blemish free, perfect in all ways, and had the best place in the house, it was treated as a family pet, eating everything,but meat, that the family ate, it was beloved by the family and slept with the kids sometimes, and was watched by them as well.
How much clearer was the picture of sacrificing something beloved, to the people in David's time, could this be?, a lot clearer than it is today!
This phrase paints the picture of Christs Sacrifice, as Gods Pass Over lamb for our sins, he was perfect in every way, without spot or blemish,...The Price is paid, It is Finished!, We are forgiven, and justified, sanctified, soon to be glorified!
Back to the lamb, this sacrifice was done every year.
Joe Glascock's comment on 2011-03-29 10:26:32:
23:6 ; This means that As Gods sheep that His goodness nand mercy shall follow us like a sheepdog follows behind the flock keeping us in line, and bringing us back when we go astray.
Gods goodness and mercy shall follow us as christians, doing the same, and being noticed for others to see.
This is a small hint of evidence that David may have used sheep dogs in his time,....Gods mercy and goodness keeping us close to the good shepherd, bringing us back to him when we go astray, and keeping us in line.
