“I cannot carry out my fierce anger!
I cannot totally destroy Ephraim!
Because I am God, and not man—the Holy One among you—
I will not come in wrath!”
God is not like man. He controls his emotions. He does not act impetuously. He does not fly off the handle. His judgment is carried out fairly.
We can rest in God’s control not only of all creation, but of himself. His actions toward us are determined by his character, not his feelings. What an example for his creatures!
