Small God

The smaller your god, the easier faith is
Because a small god doesn't expect much from you
The smaller your god, the easier obedience is
Because a small god doesn't ask you to challenge society's norms.
The smaller your god, the easier surrender is
Because a small god doesn't require you to submit to his will. 

The smaller your god, the harder peace is
Because a small god requires you to inform him of how to solve every problem
The smaller your god, the harder love is
Because a small god will gladly let you haul guilt from yester years.
The smaller your god, the harder life is
Because a small god will let you walk into a wall, fall and ignore you when you call


A god I can control,
A god I can predict,
A god I can manipulate
is an idol.

The God I can't control,
The God I can't predict,
The God I can't manipulate,
is God
A loving Father, 
who is able to keep you from falling, 
present you faultless before the throne, 
perfect all that concerns you,
 and do immeasurably and abundantly more than you can fathom.


So which God will you choose?
