If I may ask which is better; to pursue and/or being pursued? You may do some analysis on the pros and cons on your own. However, I believe this illustration will nail it. Imagine you, pursuing Usain Bolt (the fastest man on planet earth today), how far can you possibly go? On the other hand, imagine Usain Bolt pursuing you, how far can you possibly escape and for how long? Hmmmn. It is more advantageous to be pursued than to pursue. Did you say depending on what’s pursuing you? Yes!
By covenant right, you are not designed to pursue, but to be pursued, by who? Signs & wonders, and Goodness & Mercy! These signs shall follow them that believe! Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me! These blessings shall come upon you, pursue and overtake you! Unfortunately, so many believers claim to pursue excellence, success, blessing and prosperity meanwhile, they fail to recognize and acknowledge that, they are first and foremost personified before becoming an event. Anyway, children follow signs but signs follow men.
