Some relationships start with a chase. Typically the guy pursues the girl while the girl allows herself to be pursued to a certain extent. The girl wants to be chased so that she feels valued; she wants to make sure that she is not simply an option. God does the same thing with us. He tells us that if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. He does not settle for a halfhearted interest, but desires a full commitment with a deliberate pursuit.
