Calm

Ezekiel 16:42 (NIV)


I will be calm and no longer angry.


It is difficult to imagine that sometimes, even God needs to be calm. We have a wrong understanding of God and His character when we picture Him as an old, benevolent grandfather who never gets upset. But the true nature of God is very similar to ours. We who are made in the image of God derive our emotions and feelings from Him. However, unlike our emotions tainted and corrupted by sin, God's emotions, feelings, and character are perfect and holy.


In the above verse, God promises to be calm after He has poured out His wrath on a stubborn, unrepentant Israel. We may be going through difficult times now and feel the hand of God heavy upon us. But be of good cheer. The Lord will return to being calm and bless you soon.
