The One Thing God Won't DoOur God is great and mighty, All powerful is He,
So tender and so loving, It grieves His heart to see
The ones He has created And whom He has redeemed,
Still struggling with Sin's problems
Until it must have seemed There just was no deliverance,
And some would say it's true There are some hardened cases
Where there's nothing God can do.
But from what I know of Jesus, God's blessed, Holy Son,
Who gave His life a ransom For every sinning one,
Our God has made provision In His redemptive Plan
For ALL WHO WILL ACCEPT HIM.
Only when a sinful man Will not admit he needs God,
And prefers to battle through Without God's power to help him
Then THERE'S NOTHING GOD CAN DO.
For in His love and mercy God gave us all free will
To choose to live a holy life, Or wallow in sin still.
He never forces anyone to let Him in the door,
But stands and waits so patiently
And gently knocks some more.
To violate your freedom And impose Himself on you
Is against His Holy Nature -
And the ONE THING GOD WON'T DO.
So do not quench the Spirit When He comes again to you.
Say "Welcome, welcome, Jesus, My heart has room for you,
I do need your forgiveness; I need Your presence too".
Then you'll know the wondrous miracle
Of the great things GOD WILL DO!
