God's love is pursuing us

Psalm 23:6 (NLT)
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.

This verse his my heart this morning, and I want to just say a couple things to you about it.  Psalms 23 is not something new to most of us.  We have heard it, maybe even memorized it, but most likely we take it for granted.  Do ya think?

Remember?  It reminds us that God walks with us through the deep valleys of death and darkness.  It reminds us that God is our shepherd and provides all we need.  Think about those things.

But the biggest thought for me today was that God's "goodness and unfailing love pursue" me.  They pursue and come after us.  As we seek God, He comes after us.  Even when we don't seek God, god comes after us.

To think that God loves us enough to come after us is incredible.  Romans 8:38-39 says nothing will or can separate us from God's love.  His love is toward us and is coming after us.

Lets seek God, recognize His love and let His goodness and love hold us tight.  Seek God!

Isaiah 55:6 (NASB)
Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.

Matthew 6:33 (NLT) 
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Seeking God is what keeps us in touch with God and seeing Him do incredible things.  I know that when I am not seeking Him, when I am not being refreshed spiritually, I am in trouble.

Lets seek God and watch and enjoy the fact that God's love is pursuing us every day!
