“As I looked … the Ancient of Days took his seat;his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool” (Daniel 7:9).
So, what’s with the gray hair? Does this mean God is like a feeble old man in a rocking chair? On the contrary, His white clothing and white hair reveal that He is absolutely pure and holy. Think of God as possessing all of the wisdom, power, and authority that come with old age while maintaining the vitality and energy of youth.
This picture of the Ancient of Days from Daniel’s prophecies reminds us that God is perfectly in control even while the “little horn” prances around this earth like he owns it.
