Going on tour with Bethel Music this past week was an experience we will never forget. We watched as altars filled with hundreds of people every night. Many of them had tears streaming down their faces as they dedicated themselves to their loving and merciful Father. And the testimonies were amazing! Backs were healed, tumors shrank, eyes were restored, and relationships miraculously reconciled.
Each night before our dad would speak, we’d sing Reckless Love by Cory Asbury. Even within the first few chords of the song, the entire atmosphere would shift, positioning our hearts to receive from God.
We love the revelation Cory had when his first child was born. While holding his son, Cory realized there was nothing he wouldn’t do for his boy, and if that’s how he felt then God must feel that way about us, His sons and daughters. Too often we create a twisted perspective of God that keeps us from running to Him. Maybe we see Him as merely a king, full of wrath and judgment. But we must never forget that He is our Heavenly Father, willing to cross the divide of space, time, and matter to bring us into His arms.
Take a moment to quiet yourself and listen to Reckless Love, opening your heart to its message. After listening to it, ask yourself this question, Have I allowed an incorrect view of God to keep me from running into His presence?
We believe that God wants to remind you that His love chases you down, fights until you’re found, and leaves the ninety-nine for you.
His reckless love never fails.
