Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6 NLT
The thought of being pursued by the goodness of God and His unfailing love is difficult to understand. When thinking of being pursued, you might think of being chased. At the very least being followed.
His pursuit comes in many forms, through His care, provisions, blessings and even His conviction. All are evidences of God's direct involvement in our lives. "But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone."
Psalms 33:18-22 NLT
The truth is, God's pursuit is really the fulfillment of the promise of His presence. "This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NLT
