9 God’s Promise - Poem by Alf Hutchison

God’s promise in His rainbow,
To Noah eons past,
Is echoed down the ages,
Throughout His world so vast.

God speaks to us through His Word;
And nature in strange ways,
Entreating us to do one thing,
“Just give to Me your praise”.

What you have, He can remove,
In the twinkling of an eye;
He can bless you if He wishes;
Choose how you live or die.

He blessed Noah and his family,
Cursing those who refused to know,
To a sinful world He leaves a sign,
Timeless wisdom… in His rainbow

    “Just give to Me your praise”.
    ..............................................
    This is the very word that the Lord wanted us to give back to HIM..Bring back all the glory and praises to HIM.As I read this, I was also praying at the same time.And yes, HIS promises are true.Praise God...! ! !

    God bless you,
    Meggie

    I enjoyed reading this very much.
    There is such a significance in its simplicity.
    “Just give to Me your praise”.
