OVERVIEW: Job points out that life is unfair as the wicked prosper and the innocent suffer.
BIG IDEA: God does whatever he pleases, but he is reliable.
KEY VERSE: Job 24:23 (Job acknowledges that the wicked will be judged)
They may be allowed to live in security, but God is always watching them.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Your faith will be forever tested and always growing. Regardless of what you want to be true or how you want me to run my universe, I will often do things differently than you think I should. That’s where your faith comes in. It’s easy to believe and to trust me when I do things the way you expect. But will you trust me when I don’t? Will you have confidence that I will always do the right thing, even when you do not understand what I am doing?
I also see how the wicked appear to be thriving. Nothing is hidden from me. You do not have to inform me because I already know. But I am always working out my plan. I use all things and circumstances. Sin may be suitable for a season, but there is still an expiration date followed by judgment. Trust me and have confidence that I do all things for good.
Reflect on Psalm 115:3. While it may seem unfair that God can do whatever pleases him, thank God that he is good and that in the end, all will be judged accordingly.
