Job 24:1

Job 24:1…”‘Why does the Almighty not set times for judgment? Why must those who know him look in vain for such days?” Job’s view of God’s providence is still off. He still views long life, health, and prosperity in this life as marks of God’s elect. This is wrong according to God’s word, and also is not our experience if we’re honest with ourselves. An eternal perspective and a right understanding of why sickness and death came into the world are important for the Believer. Christ’s atoning death did not include health and wealth in this life. Reliance on this false theology will only bring disappointment and despair.
