795 Only Knowing God’s Rule Brings Liberation

Verse 1

The Creator has sovereignty

over human fate and all human matters.

If people fail to recognize that

and can’t truly submit to His dominion,

it’ll be hard for them not to be driven or fettered

by the idea that “one’s fate is in one’s own hands.”


Chorus 1

It will be difficult for them to shake off the pain

of their intense struggle against fate,

their struggle against the Creator’s authority.

It will also be so hard for them

to become truly liberated and truly free,

to become people who worship God.


Verse 2

There’s an exceedingly simple way

to free yourself from this kind of state:

Bid farewell to your old way of life

and say goodbye to your previous life goals;

summarize and analyze your previous lifestyle,

your view of life, pursuits, desires, and ideals.


Chorus 2

Then compare them with God’s will and demands for man,

see whether they are after God’s heart.

Do they lead to a greater understanding of the truth

and provide the right values for life?

Do they allow you to live with humanity

and the likeness of a human being?


Bridge

When you dissect and investigate

people’s various life goals and ways of living,

you’ll find none conforms to the Creator’s intent

with which He created humanity.

They draw people away from God’s rule and care.

They’re all traps that cause people to become depraved,

and all of these traps lead them to hell.


Chorus 3

When you see this, you should lay aside your old view of life,

stay far away from various traps,

let God take charge of your life, make arrangements for you,

submitting only to God’s plans and guidance,

living your life free of individual choice,

becoming someone who worships God.
