6Surely 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.

Psalm 23:6

Many familiar translations use the word “follow” in place of “pursue.” The Hebrew word translated here is stronger than follow. When I follow someone, I proceed behind him to observe or monitor behavior. When I pursue someone, I intend to catch him. I don’t just want to observe him; I intend to capture his attention, to accomplish the goal of reaching him.

If God’s love and goodness can be animated, it is in the business of pursuing you. It will continue until it reaches you, catches you, captures you. It is hot on your trail.

I invite you to stop and fall prey to the goodness and unfailing love of Father. Let him lead you to his house, take up residence in his presence, be overwhelmed by his goodness!
