Favor Is Pursuing You!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
I have a friend – let's call him Pete – who seems to have the Midas Touch. Everything he touches turens to gold.
He publishes a book, it's a NYT Best Seller.
He sells a product online, it makes millions.
His family is the family everyone dreams of.
But it's not King Midas' touch – it's the touch of the One True King, Jesus.
In the Bible, there was another King, David, who was known as a man after God’s own heart.
His outlook on life was instructive.
In Psalm 23, he says, “Goodness and mercy are following me.”
David expected favor. He expected goodness. One translation says, “God’s kindness chases me everywhere that I go.”
King David’s attitude was “something good is going to happen to me. Favor is following me. Wherever I go, God’s blessings are pursuing me. ”
It's no mystery why David overcame great obstacles, and saw his dreams come true. He was positive that goodness was chasing him down like the “hound of heaven.”
And God's goodness is chasing YOU right now.
That same Psalm says “I lack nothing.”
So what's chasing you is not lack. It's not failure. It's not sickness. It's not depression or anxiety.
God says you are a royal priest, a child of the king, and heir to the promises given to Abraham, a co-heir with Christ.
God says all your debts have been paid. You're redeemed from every curse.
Divine connections, restoration of what was lost, favor, grace, and blessings … all in hot pursuit of YOU, wherever you are!
God’s goodness and mercy are chasing you – all the days of your life!
Pray this prayer with me:
Daddy thank you for the gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace. thanks for your goodness and mercy! Today I'll be looking for your goodness and mercy in my life. Amen!
