Just the thought of the wicked prospering is certainly beyond us. We’d like to think that they all die in misery, but that’s not reality. Many of them die in prosperity and abundance.
What troubles us more is when the righteous suffer. Why doesn’t God respond to their pain and misery? We believe that God will respond and hope he does it during our lifetime.
We know about the day of judgement, that all people will be judged according to their deeds. But what about now? We want to see God’s judgement on them now so we can say: “See, I told you so.” But no, God waits.
This discomfort is too much to bear. But it’s time to learn to accept God’s ways because they are higher than ours. Rest in his plan for us. Let’s learn to be comfortable with the discomfort of the uncertain.
