Not A Genie

God is not a genie
Where He only gives you wishes three
Infinite cosmic power to your will a slave to be

God is not a genie
Where He grants in trickery
So say your prayers carefully

God is not the Holy Bible’s blue mist
No matter how much you rub it I insist
Your prayer is not to be a sanctified wish list
A Christmas list with a holy twist

God is not a genie
You don’t have to wish Him free
Holy, Holy, Holy
And we relegate His sovereignty
To an annoying mystery
That gets in the way annoyingly
Of our magic carpet fantasy

God is not a genie
Not the demon of Arabian legendry
Or the animated one of Disney
But you will never have a Friend like He
Who has the best for you as a reality
And works all things towards that destiny
Though we can’t see

He is able to keep you from falling
To present you to worlds unfallen
Unashamed to be callin’
Us coworkers, co-heirs and brethren

God is not a genie
So stop trying to whip yourself into a frenzy
To summon the Presence Holy
To get your wishes three
Fervently, sincerely, doesn’t mean gyratingly
And His numerous promises given freely
Approach in praise, awe, and humility
God is not a genie
