Psalms 48:14, “For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.”
God is the God of His people for ever and ever. He will never cease being our God. As their God, He is their Shepherd guide. God’s people must die one day, and that for them will be the end of their earthly pilgrimage. Until then He will be a faithful and constant guide. “And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not” (Isaiah 58:11). This is guidance not only up until the time of death, but it includes leading through death and beyond it until the saints are brought into the everlasting rest.
“What a portion then is that of the believer! The landlord cannot say of his fields, these are mine for ever and ever. The king cannot say of his crown, this is mine for ever and ever. These possessions shall soon change masters; these possessors shall soon mingle with the dust, and even the graves they shall occupy may not long be theirs; but it is the singular, the supreme happiness of every Christian to say, or have a right to say, ‘This glorious God with all his divine perfections is my God, for ever and ever, and even death itself shall not separate me from his love.’” (George Burder 1752-1832).
