I DO NOT KNOW

God’s foreknowledge of our actions

Of our thoughts and even whims,

Does not alter His responses

To our needs when brought to Him.

.

.

Sure, it is hard to understand it,

Do His actions toward man

Ever change?  Enough to know

That God had and has a plan!

.

.

Is His plan ever retroactive?

Does He ever change, repent?

Yes!  With Nineveh’s example (*)

It is agreed, He does relent.

.

.

Moses’ intervention, often

In the wilderness, would prove

That God’s predestined promise of

Dire judgment could be moved.

.

.

How to know unchanging nature

Of our God who changes not,

Not to worry!  Not your problem!

To know all is not our lot!

.

.

“How unsearchable His actions

And His ways past finding out.” (**)

He can save you and redeem you,

Even though you harbor doubt.

.

.

Though God sees and knows before hand

Just which way you choose to go,

Can a heart of strong repentance

Change His mind?  I still do not know!

.

.

(And I am not taking any chances!)

.

(**) Romans 11:33
