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 – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
