God is not an ATM
Where we constantly withdraw;
To top up our emotional account
When we beg or ask for more.
God is not a magician
Where we wave our magic wand;
When we demand a quick response
Whilst having neglected Him all along.
God is not disposable
To meet any carnal desires,
Or to fulfil the lusts of the flesh
And to cater for every liar.
God is not religious
To impose rules and regulations,
But desires that we obey willingly
From a heart that’s filled with patience.
God will answer all our prayers
When they’re according to His will;
To heal the sick, to deliver souls
And when His commandments we fulfil.
A prayer that touches His heart indeed
Is “Lord forgive all of my sins,
Be my Lord and Savior
And cleanse my soul within”
Our God is holy and righteous
And deserves our love and respect;
As we humble ourselves and focus on Christ
And HIs sacrifice we ought to never forget.
