God Graciously Gives Great Gifts - Poem by Njousi Abang

Every second God receives
Billions of supplications and petitions
From different people in different languages
In all the nooks and crannies of this globe
Calls come from all walks of life
For good and revengeful purposes
God hears them all
But God graciously gives gifts of great repute
The beggars sometimes put on the human twist
As they say: ‘God give me wealth
So that I can help my people and myself'
When they know they cannot and won't
Help anyone if God were to grant the wish
Hear them: ‘God give me long life
So that I can serve your people'
And they know that the more they stay
The more corrupt they become
And the more they will kill
All man forgets to remember is that
God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient
Thus He knows him even before he was born
God won't give gifts of great disrepute

So night and day people resort
To seek what Christ rejected from the devil
So night and day people bow to Satan
To have their way and say
And deceive the vulnerable and gullible
With praises to God for making
Them prosperous and fit to live
And enjoy the fruits of their labour
When indeed they know
That Satan instead of God
Granted them the false gifts

God graciously gives gifts of great repute
He does not pretend the way we do
Neither does He let evil to predominate
So He exposes evil to shame in all its finery
And makes the righteous to know
What is the best that should be sought
And treasured forever and ever in life
After all the precious things like air,
Rain and the land on which we trudge
Are not bought although without them
None can live as physically as possible
