734 You Are Likely to Defy God When You Make Demands of Him

Chorus

People demand so much of God; it’s hardest to deal with.

If God doesn’t act the way you think, you then resist Him.

This shows that the nature of man is opposed to God.

You must pursue the truth to know and solve this.

Verse 1

Those who lack the truth demand so much of God.

Those who know the truth demand nothing,

but wish to satisfy and obey God more.

People’s demands of God show their corrupt nature.

Treat this with all seriousness,

or there’ll be peril on your path of faith.

You can overcome most things in life,

but when your very fate is involved, you may not overcome.

Without the truth, you will regress and be destroyed.

Chorus

People demand so much of God; it’s hardest to deal with.

If God doesn’t act the way you think, you then resist Him.

This shows that the nature of man is opposed to God.

You must pursue the truth to know and solve this.

Verse 2

Many of you conduct yourselves well while following,

but the future is unsure,

for you don’t know your Achilles’ heel.

You’re unaware of how your natures oppose God.

Before they bring disaster, you remain utterly unknowing.

When your journey ends and God’s work is over,

you may then do what most opposes God, such a terrible thing,

the most grievous blasphemy against Him.

Chorus

People demand so much of God; it’s hardest to deal with.

If God doesn’t act the way you think, you then resist Him.

This shows that the nature of man is opposed to God.

You must pursue the truth to know and solve this.
