This Hebrew word rendered “surely” does not just communicate certainty but also it is a limiting particle that expresses exclusiveness. So, the passage could be expanded to begin with, “surely goodness and mercy and ONLY goodness and mercy…”
Father I thank you for the assignment of goodness and mercy on my life. They are hunting me down where ever I go. They are fierce, relentless, and never rest until they are seen in abundance in my life and all over the works of my hands. They bring beautiful things, bountiful things, precious things, beneficial things, and the best things. Yet, I realize that if I pursue them I cause them to operate in reverse and they flee from me, but as I seek your kingdom I empower them to pursue me all the more. In the name of Yahshua (Jesus) I pray and receive this truth into my heart.
At the authority of the Word of God, only goodness and mercy follow me. Only goodness and mercy follow. Disease and sickness, you cannot follow me. Stress and worry, you cannot follow me. Lack and loss, you cannot follow me. The so-called Murphy’s Law (whatever can go wrong, will go wrong) you cannot follow me. Generational curses, you cannot follow me. If you are affecting my life then you are doing it illegally and I resist you, command you to cease, and cast you far from me now. I do not doubt that what I have declared shall come to pass and be seen.
