Each one of us wants to be wanted, to be known, to be important to someone, and to be valued. God perfectly pursues each one of us in different ways at different times. He pursues us through His people. He pursues us according to our personality and interests. God pursues us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, through His creation, that created the heavens, and the earth pursues us every day in so many ways but the most important way He pursues us is in his goodness and love.


God pursues us in his goodness…

God never promises us an easy life. But he promises to carry us through every circumstance.

King David once declared about God: 

“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

David knew that bad things happen to good people. No matter how bad or evil or difficult things can seem, God will work them out for good. There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in a person’s life that God can’t ultimately redeem for his good purpose.

God also pursues us with His love…

Along with God’s goodness, his unfailing love follows you throughout life as well. King David says it pursues us!

The Bible also tells us in Romans 8 that absolutely NOTHING can separate us from the love of God.

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38

The love of God pursues us and follows us all the days of our life. We will all inevitably go through difficult things in life. But God says, even when we fail, even when life is hard and even when we find ourselves in dark places. His love never fails to pursue us.

When we’re struggling with hurts, habits, and difficult circumstances, God is coming right alongside us, helping to pick us up out of our messes and our dark places and comforting us with His unfailing love.

Nothing can take that away from you. There’s no failure big enough to derail what God wants to do in your life. God’s mercy will never leave you. God is with you, and he is for you.

Ultimately, God pursues us every day because he loves you and wants a relationship with you

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.”       – 1 John 3:1 (NIV)

God’s love is perfect. It doesn’t depend on His mood or whether I measured up that day.  I am valuable to God just because I exist. And again, He is the reason I exist at all.

God loves me no matter what, with amazing, unconditional love. According to Psalm 139, I can’t escape His pursuit.

“I can never escape from Your Spirit! I can never get away from Your presence! If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I go down to the grave, You are there.”  – Psalm 139:7-8 (NLT)

These are powerful promises that you can lean on today that no matter how you think you may have failed in the past, or what you might be going through now, God is always in pursuit of you with His goodness and His love. He is there to comfort you and walk beside you every step.
