You are the Benjamin generation who dwell between His Shoulders, Goodness and Mercy are pursuing you!
Are you feeling down and hopeless today? Look up, Child of God, into your Savior’s Smiling Eyes.
Today I heard Psalm 23:6 (below) about how God’s goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our life. As I looked up the Hebrew word translated “follow” I discovered it actually means “to run after, pursue, chase.”
So all you have to do, Child of God is stop running in your own power, stand still and let His Goodness and Mercy, also translated His Lovingkindness, OVERTAKE you!
His Goodness and Mercy are overtaking you ALL the days of your life. The Holy Spirit is pursuing you yesterday, today and forever!
As you look to Jesus, He runs to you, Child of God. He is your Helper and Comforter, your Best Friend, your Abba Father.
Just as the father of the prodigal son ran to him, so His Goodness and Mercy pursue us all the days of our life.
He will never give up on you, Child of God. I just see Jesus running with us, pursuing us with His love, being our Rear Guard, and picking us up like a Father picks up His Child and puts him on His Shoulders.
You dwell securely in Him. Forever He is Faithful and True and He delights in you.
“Beloved. Do not weep. You are never alone, My Child. Surely, My Goodness and Mercy follow you ALL the days of your life.
Stop running the race in your own strength, My Child. Do not let fear capture your heart but allow My Holy Spirit to catch you up in My Everlasting Arms.
Have you seen a father and child playing? As the child runs, the father is running close behind, and he overtakes his child and picks him up on his shoulders with great delight.
So it is with Us, Beloved. As it is written: “The Beloved of The LORD shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters him all the day long; And he shall dwell between His shoulders.”
You are My Benjamins. You are the daughters and sons of My Right Hand. I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners.
I have chosen and not rejected you. So fear not, I AM with you. Be not dismayed, for I AM your God.
I will strengthen you — Yes, I will help you — I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand.
I have clothed you in Garments of Salvation and My Robe of Righteousness. So turn your eyes upon Me, Beloved.
See that I AM right there with you. He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for you, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give you all things? Yes, Dear One.
Forever, I will pursue you with My Goodness and Mercy, Beloved, and you will dwell in the House of The LORD forever.”

It is God who justifies.” Romans 8:31-33.
