Have you ever felt like life is unfair? I’m sure we all have. It’s easy to get frustrated when people who don’t follow Jesus or care about Him seem to do well in life. A business person who cheats to get a big contract, the people who party all the time who is robust and healthy while you or your love one’s struggle with finances or medical issues. It make us feel cheated, like maybe we’ve been good for nothing by following Jesus in his will and ways.
If you’ve ever felt this way, your in good company.
In Psalm 73 David writes a whole list of how the wicked prosper then, he says, “surely in vain I have kept my heart pure.” But the tide of his thoughts turns when he recalls him time in God’s presence. “Then he understood their final destiny in Psalm 17.
When we spend time with God and see things from His point of view, it changes our perspective completely. We may be jealous of non-believers now, but we won’t be at Judgement time. As the saying goes, what difference does it make if you win the battle but lose the war.
Let’s praise God’s for his presence in this life and His promise of the life to comePsalm 73: 25-28
He is all you need, even when life seems unfair.
