Psalm 23:6 says, Surely your goodness and love will be with me all my life. And I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
The first five verses of Psalm 23 are about the goodness of God.
1 - God gives us everything we need
2 - God gives us rest and peace
3 - God gives us strength and leads us on the right path
4 - God is with us in difficult times and comforts us
5 - God blessed us with more than enough
Verse six emphasises this by saying that God’s goodness and love will be with us all our lives. David reminds us that we will live in his house for eternity. He mentions traveling through a dark valley and enemies in this Psalm, indicating that there will be difficult times in our lives. But no matter what difficulties we face, it’s not worth comparing to the great joy we will experience in eternity with God. Romans 8:18 says, We have sufferings now. But the sufferings we have now are nothing compared to the great glory that will be given to us.
So, in a nutshell, God is good, even when life is not. Eternity with God will be worth the pain.
