Monday, December 12th. Psalm 23:6

(This week’s devotions come from “Grace for the Moment” by Max Lucado.)


“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6


What a surprising way to describe God.  A God who pursues us.


Dare we envision a mobile, active God who chases us, tracks us, following us with goodness and mercy all the days of our lives?


He’s not hard to find.


He’s there in scripture, looking for Adam and Eve.  They’re hiding in the bushes, partly to cover their bodies, partly to cover their sin.


Does God wait for them to come to him? No, the words ring in the garden.  “Where are you?” God asks (Genesis 3:9), beginning his quest to redeem the heart of man.


A quest to follow his children until his children follow him.


Let us pray:  Dear Lord, come to us this Advent season, following us with goodness and mercy.  Don’t give up on us until the day comes when we dwell forever with you.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
