Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From This is Love, by Max Lucado

His Goodness and Mercy

Dare we envision a God who follows us? Who follows us with “goodness and mercy” all the days of our lives? The disciples of Jesus knew the feeling of being followed by God. They were rain soaked and shivering when they looked over their shoulders and saw Jesus walking toward them. God had followed them into the storm. An unnamed Samaritan woman knew the same. She was alone in life and alone at the well when she looked over her shoulder and heard a Messiah speaking. God had followed her through her pain. John the Apostle was banished on Patmos when he looked over his shoulder and saw the skies begin to open. God had followed him into his exile. Lazarus was three days dead in a sealed tomb when he heard a voice, lifted his head, and looked over his shoulder and saw Jesus standing. God had followed him into death. Peter had denied his Lord and gone back to fishing when he heard his name and looked over his shoulder and saw Jesus cooking breakfast. God had followed him in spite of his failure. God is the God who follows. I wonder . . . have you sensed him following you? Still he follows. Never forcing us. Never leaving us. Patiently persistent. Faithfully present. Using all of his power to convince us that he is who he is and that he can be trusted to lead us home. His goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives.
