“Once the stroke of God is past, the air clears and a better spirit pervades the community,under Gedaliah’s kindly governorship. God’s blessing on the land again appears (Jeremiah 40:12). How quick He is to turn His anger away. He doth not willingly afflict the children of men. Slow to chide, and swift to bless is our God!”
(Rev James Philip on Jeremiah 40:7-16, Gardenstown Church, Thursday 23rd August 1956).
