My experience is that most people, including Christians, think God wants us to line up, stay in line, and be good. We’ve embraced the idea that He is patient, but still on the verge of anger. For most people, God is a scary character – unpredictable and strict. But consider what God said through the prophet Isaiah: ‘The mountains and the hills will be removed, but My kindness shall never leave your, nor shall My covenant of peace with you be removed.’ … God is saying that He is not unpredictable.
