Is God righteous? He lets babies die. Is He fair? He hears the hungry cry. Evil men live lives of comfort and ease. The good have many a reason to grieve. Tyranny blossoms while freedom struggles; Catastrophe comes to multiply troubles. Strife and contention everywhere grow; The reason for this – does anyone know? The answers come through humble introspection. God finds no pleasure in Man’s dereliction. He displays his plan of a future resurrection, Even explains the mystery of Satan’s infection. Yet, Satan is God’s devil, temporarily to rule; Just as the black cloth accentuates a jewel. He’s made for God’s purpose – calamity to strew; God’s greatness reveal, and forgiveness to show. Nay – but Oh man, will to God you reply; Why did you make me, if only to die? Who is the clay to reply to God so: Potter, Creator ? - he’s your owner, you know. If life on earth is as the blink of an eye, To life eternal – it’s foolish to reply. God declares He is just, as His attributes cite, And proves He’s unlimited in all of His might. There must be good reason, His wrath to be shown, And just as he promised, the good seed was sown. Is He not worthy our worship to hold? -As He gathers his own sheep to the fold. Questioning God results of superstition. Man is measured by his inward condition. God is known only as he, himself reveals. Revelation displays what superstition conceals. Glory to God’s son seems the purpose indeed: His love made manifest, as the prisoners go free. The Creator creates what is pleasing to him. It’s all of Holy Design, and nothing of whim. John 15:13 Greater love hath no man, than he lay down his life for his friends. Job 1:21 The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Rom 9:20 & 2 Shall the thing formed say unto him that formed it – why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay? Isa. 35:6 & 7 I am God, and there is none other: I form the light and create darkness; I make peace and create evil – I the Lord do all these things. Matt.20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil because I am good?
