Have you ever felt like God’s forgiveness and grace would run out? Sometimes we can’t help but think those kinds of thoughts. But that is not how scripture describes God. Psalm 103:12, “As far as the east is from the west so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” His grace isn’t running out on you. Tasha Layton’s song “How Far” is about, even in the middle of us hiding from God or even running from Him, Him continuing to reach out and pursue us. It was God’s love for you that propelled Him to give His life on the cross – arms stretched open wide. That’s how far He will go for you.
Sometimes, when we are in the middle of a difficult season, it feels like we are stuck there in that valley. But, when we call on Jesus for help, strongholds break, hearts are set free and walls come down. Josh Baldwin’s song “There Is Freedom” is a celebration of what Jesus has done for us on the cross; a song about the freedom that is found in Jesus as He stands in the gap for us. The truth is, there is nowhere we can go that He hasn’t already been, and there is nothing standing between us and God because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
