49. Who is like God?
Micah raises the lid on God:
“Who is there like you, the God who removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance; Who does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency, and will again have compassion on us, treading underfoot our guilt? You will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.” Micah, chapter 7, verses 18 to 19
In this opening passage from Micah, we discover that God is merciful. But Micah also tells us that God can “persist in anger”. These are the two aspects that we will pursue now. We know that God is merciful. But, can he be angry too? Absolutely not.
Let’s get the magnifying glass out of its holster and follow in God’s footsteps.
