God will RUN
when we come back to Him!
The only safe place —
life in the Son!
The place of fullness and joy!

I first heard this wonderful song played at the Evanston [Ill.] Vineyard in about 1990, during the pastor’s message, entitled ~”The Father-Heart of God.” It’s one of my all-time favorite songs, and the other renditions I see online aren’t anywhere nearly as powerful as Benny Hester’s original version, which I’m very pleased to see is again on YouTube!

When God Ran
Written by: Benny Hester & John Parenti
The Great I Am
Commanding King of Kings
And the only time,
the only time I ever saw Him run
He ran to me,
Took me in His arms, held my head to His chest
And said “My son’s come home again”.
Looked in my face, wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in His voice
He said “Son, do you know I still love you?”
It caught me by surprise when God ran
The day I left Home,
I knew I’d broken His heart …
When God Ran by Benny Hester
Asbury Revival, 1970: “‘Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?’ … Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘Dr. Kinlaw, I’m free!’” — when He ran to me…
Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — This is the place Benny is singing about — the place of truly abiding, entering His rest here on earth — in Jesus’ arms of safety! [see especially John 15 and Romans 8:1a AND 1b in this study]
