Why does God get all the blame
When situations go amiss,
Whilst we tend to forget His presence
When circumstances are filled with bliss?
Why is God blamed for all evil
When most times it’s self-induced?
And why is mankind elevated
Whilst His majesty is reduced?
Why do people blame the Lord
When all evil rears its head,
And where calamities one after another
Leave people wounded and many dead?
It’s because deep down we know God exists
And He’s pure as can be,
When the question arises in our mind
As to why He didn’t intercede.
Because we know that He is God Almighty
And able to intercept,
All wickedness and all things vile
And bring justice to every debt.
Because we know that He is very real
As real as the air we breathe,
But we prefer to suppress our knowledge of Him
So we avoid accountability.
And we know deep down that Satan is real
Who comes to steal, destroy and kill,
With a target on our backs
When we’re subjected to God’s will.
Because we know that in an instant
This vapour of life can disappear,
And that many times we’ve worshipped vanity
And for God had no reverent fear.
Because we know that He is the judge
Who stands at the gate of eternity,
And we know deep down we’re guilty
And His judgement we will see.
But thank God for His Son Jesus
Who was crucified on the cross,
To appease God’s wrath for eternity
When Christ paid the ultimate cost.
The ultimate cost for those who receive
Jesus as Lord and Savior too,
With a humble and a repentant heart
And with motives that are true.
It cost the Father His dear Son
To intercede for our wicked ways,
And it was the most humiliating and painful death
So the stain of sin does not remain.
