Psalm 23:6  Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord as long as I live. (CSB)

Certainly goodness and faithfulness will follow me all the days of my life, And my dwelling will be in the house of the Lord forever.
(New American Standard 2020)‬ 
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.
(New International Version) 
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.
(New Living Translation) 
Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.
(The Message)

This most-beloved psalm tells us that God goes before us, walks alongside us, and follows us everywhere all the time. We live surrounded not by a hedge of protection but by God. 

Notice the synonyms used in different translations of verse 6 to amplify the word “follow.” “Pursue” and “chase” should serve to remind us that we cannot outrun God. They should also remind us that no matter where we run, he runs too. They should bring to mind what God said to Abraham in Genesis 15:1: “Walk before me, and live blamelessly,” (New American Standard 2020). 

Our Father in heaven pursues you to amplify your life. He wants to maximize your good work. He wants to optimize your exploits. 

What would that look like for you today? Give that some thought. Seek God’s direction. Then confidently exit your door and step into God’s goodness today.

I will walk before God in maximum expression of who he created me to be.

Our Father, please go before me to prepare the way. Walk beside me all along the way. Follow me as I walk in your way. Pursue me when I divert from your way. Chase me when I run away. Remind me as often as necessary that not only is yours the only truly good way, you are the way. Amen.

Daily D – Jeremiah 35:12-14

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”

Daily D – Psalm 78:70-72

Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.

Daily D – Jeremiah 29:13

Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Daily D – Jeremiah 23:20-22

Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
