When Life Seems Unfair

When Life Seems Unfair

Psalm 73 Read Here…

Psalm 73:3 ” For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”

Have you ever felt that life is unfair? For those of us who are committed to following the will and the ways of Jesus, it’s easy to get frustrated when people who don’t care about Him seem to do well in Life. A business man cheats yet wins a large contract, and the guy who parties all the time is robust and healthy, while you and your loved ones struggle with finances or medical issues. It makes us feel cheated, like maybe we’ve been good for nothing.

If you’ve ever felt that way, you’re in good company. The writer of Psalm 73 goes through whole list how the wicked prosper, and then he says, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain” (v.13). But the tide of his thoughts turns when he recalls his time in God’s presence: “Then I understood their end” (v.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 the non believers now, but we won’t be at the judgement time. As the saying goes, what difference does it make you win the battle lose the war?

Like the Psalmist, let’s praise God for His presence in this life and His promise of the life to come (vv.25-28). He is all you need, even when life seems unfair — Joe Stowell

All wrongs will one day be set right
By God who sees both bad and good;
All motives and all deeds will then
Be fairly judged and understood. –D. De Haan

  1. DOES WHAT A MAN THINKS AFFECT HIS SALVATION?

    Does what a man thinks alter the fact of a man’s salvation?

    Can a man say that he believes that Jesus is the Son God and then say, however, I do not think that it is essential for my salvation? Can that kind of thinking save anyone? (John 8:24’Therefore I say to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”)

    Is it possible for someone to assert they they were baptized in water and say, however, I do not think it was not essential for me to be saved? Can that kind of thinking save anyone? (Mark 16:16 He who has believed and been baptized shall be saved…)

    Is is plausible that a person can profess that they believe the God raised Jesus from the grave and then say, however, I do not think it is essential to believe that, in order to be saved? Can that kind of thinking save you? (Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.)
