7). The Hebrew word often translated "follow" is actually closer in meaning to the word "pursue": "Goodness and kindness will pursue me." Why would God pursue us? Do you feel this happening in your life?
I truly believe it's because He loves us. Yes, I do feel in my heart that God pursue me. I feel He loves me and He has never let me down. I see that so clear, but my flesh will try to make me feel He doesn't. You see, when we are in any trouble God's grace and mercy is always there. The recording of the Psalm of David let us know God is pursuing us right now. He didn't have to leave it for us, but He wanted us to know this, to embrace this truth through-out life. He is that kind of God!

God's preserving in my life? First of all, God has kept me from deception of His Word, so important to me, because so much is being taught today, man's own idea of what he think is God's way of serving Him. God has spared my life over and over again against harm, hurt, and danger. I have learned to trust Him, and still learning today. I truly believe it's because of God gracious preservative to His people. Right now I believe God is preserving me for His glory in my life. I can't do it without Him! I have been sit apart for His glory. His banner is love over my life. Thank You, Lord Jesus!
