Having smiled upon these people, it looked as if without any apparent cause or reason he was now frowning upon them, and on the point of destroying them. Circumstances often seem to give us that impression. Everything suddenly seems to go wrong and to be working in the revers direction, and the suggestion comes to us that God is not really interested in us, and not concerned about us.
Now, of one thing we can always be absolutely certain-God is not like that. By His very nature and being there is nothing more glorious than the eternal constancy of God. He is “the father of light with whom is no variableness neither shadow of turning” He does not say one thing and then do the opposite. He does not play with us and mock us. He is never capricious.
