804 The Result Achieved by Knowing God
One day, you’ll feel the Creator’s no more a riddle,
He’s never been hidden,
never covered His face from you;
He’s not far from you at all;
He’s no longer the One you yearn for day and night
but can’t reach with your feelings.
He is genuinely standing guard around your side,
supplying your life, and controlling your fate.
He’s not on the distant horizon,
nor is He hidden in the clouds.
He is right by your side, reigning over your all.
He’s your everything and your only One.
A God as such makes you adore Him,
admire Him, cling to Him, hold Him close,
whom you fear to lose,
no longer want to turn your back on and disobey,
or avoid and distance from;
you just want to care for Him,
obey Him, repay all He gives you,
submit to His dominion.
You no longer refuse
His guidance, supply, care, and protection;
you don’t resist His sovereignty
and arrangement anymore.
You just want to follow Him, be with Him;
you just want to accept Him as your one and only life,
as your one and only Lord and God.
