Why do the wicked still live, continue on, also become very powerful? Their descendants are established with them in their sight, and their offspring before their eyes, their houses are safe from fear, and the rod of God is not on them. His ox mates without fail; His cow calves and does not abort. They send forth their little ones like the flock, and their children skip about. They sing to the timbrel and harp and rejoice at the sound of the flute. They spend their days in prosperity, and suddenly they go down to Sheol. They say to God, 'Depart from us! We do not even desire the knowledge of Your ways. Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him, And what would we gain if we entreat Him?' Job 21:7-15
Don't you feel like this sometimes? There are many things in life that just don't look right! This reminded me of a few Psalms. So I read Psalm 73 for perspective. Here are a few excerpts.
For I was envious of the arrogant as I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no pains in their death, and their body is fat. They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like mankind. Psalm 73:3-5
What’s the key to understanding life’s dilemmas? Coming into the sanctuary of God. The nearness of God is my good. The Lord is my refuge. Wonderful!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
