God’s Love Is Pursuing You
By Rick Warren

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life.” Psalm 23:6 (NLT)

Yesterday we looked at how God’s goodness follows you in life. In the same verse, King David says God’s unfailing love also pursues you.

Picture a parent following a little kid around and picking up after the child. When you’re struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups, God comes right alongside you, helping to pick up your messes and telling you that his unfailing love is always there.

This means that, rather than entering the future with a question mark, you can do it with an exclamation point! God will be with you, no matter what happens. He will help you out: “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” (Psalm 23:6 NLT).

What is God’s goodness, and what is his unfailing love? God’s goodness is the fact that God gives us good things in life that we don’t deserve. His unfailing love—his mercy—means that God holds back the condemnation we do deserve.

Remember this:

  • God’s goodness will provide and protect.
  • God’s mercy (unfailing love) will pardon and forgive.
  • God’s goodness will supply your every need.
  • God’s mercy will soothe.
  • God’s goodness will help.
  • God’s mercy and love will heal.  

You can count on God’s promises, including his promise that you “will live in the house of the LORD forever.” So, even after God supplies everything you need to follow him in this life, he still has forever waiting for you in a perfect place he has prepared for you.

God is going to pursue you with his love throughout your life, and then you’re going to enjoy being in his presence for eternity.

That’s the best news!
