The blessedness of being pursued by God

Psalm 23:6 (NIV): Surely your goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

forever.

The Common English Bible is the only one I’ve read that says, goodness and faithful love will pursue me…

God will chase me down, grab me, and hold me (Walter Brueggemann).

Brueggemann then says this: “Lent is a time to quit running, to let ourselves be caught and embraced in love, like a sheep with safe pasture, like a traveler offered rich and unexpected food.”

Allow God to pursue you in this season. Desire one thing: his presence.
