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
Think of someone who loves you so much that they relentlessly pursue you. There are so many reminders in God’s Word of our responsibility to obey and connect with Him. Obeying His commandments is not a punishment or killjoy–it brings peace that surpasses our understanding. This verse reminds us of how He pursues us with an unfailing love ALL the days of our lives. Not just on your good days, but your bad days too. And, when it’s all said and done, we will live in the house of the Lord forever. He pursues us all the way home.
The definition of pursue is to “catch someone”–let Him catch you up in His love! He is all you need.
