Psalm 16:8 (NKJV)
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
When kids play chase, they are playing together. They are not lonely or bored. Playing chase is exciting. If you are “it” everyone chases you. God likes to play chase and He is “it”. He likes to play follow the leader, and He is the Leader.
If God goes to left, you follow Him. If He turns around, you follow Him. Chasing after God is fun. Our bodies may get tired, but our Spirits can be fed continually with the Bread of Life, His Word.
In the wilderness, the men of Israel, save Caleb, did not follow God. Moses asked the LORD to forgive the men that did not follow Him (Num 14:19). God did not allow them to enter the Promised Land. The LORD said,
“My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.” -Numbers 14:24
John 10:27 (NKJV) – My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
