Devotional – January 31, 2012

VERSE:
Job 15:20–“The wicked man writhes in pain all his days, and numbered are he years stored up for the ruthless.”

TRUTH:
Job’s friend Eliphaz is speaking again and reveals a very logical idea that is wrong. As much as we would like to believe that evil people will experience bad things, that is simply not true. The Lord never promises us that our lives here would be fair. Plus, as we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory, we should be very thankful that God does not give us what we deserve.

RESPONSE:
Lord, help me to see people through Your eyes instead of through incorrect assumptions. I pray You will help me to trust in You and not in logic.
