Devotional – February 3, 2012

Job 18:21–“Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him who does not know God.”

In this chapter, Job’s friend Bildad describes brokenness and destruction, then states that this is what the wicked experience. While it’s true that ultimately when God judges all people, those without Jesus Christ will experience this. However, until that time, sometimes it can appear that the wicked prosper. We must not place our trust in what we see, or get focused on the apparent “unfairness” of life, but must trust in the One who is over all.

Lord, sometimes it doesn’t seem like those who do evil things get what we feel they deserve. I pray You will help me focus only on You.
