It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice. Job 34:12
Watching some people, it sometimes appears as if they can never do anything wrong. They live such a good life, that they almost appear perfect. Yet, if one examines their life closer, there will be faults found in them.
There are also some people that many people feel as if the person cannot do anything wrong. People often put a politician on a pedestal and believe that no matter what he does, he cannot do anything wrong. Again, if a person really looks closely at the person, faults will be found.
Job had been feeling as though God may be doing something wrong in judging him. Elihu points out that it is completely unthinkable that God would do something wrong, or that He would pervert justice.
Over time there have been many people who have turned against God because they thought He did something wrong. They had a loved one who God allowed to die from a sickness, rather than heal that person. God allows a person to lose his job. Things in his life do not go correctly and they blame God for it.
It is easy for a person to blame God for things when they go wrong. However, one needs to determine what is considered ‘something going wrong’. When a sickness overtakes a person, most people think that is wrong, but God may have it there for a greater, eternal purpose. Losing a job may feel as a bad wrong, but it may be done in order to move him to somewhere better or to get him out of what will become a bad situation.
God ways of doing things is strange to man’s thinking, but it is always correct and always the best action.
When things go ‘bad’ in your life, don’t just blame God and get angry with Him. Ask Him to reveal His purpose for those bad times. Ask Him how you can grow closer to Him through those bad times. Ask Him how you can be His witness in those bad times.
God will not and cannot ever do anything wrong. His love for you is so great that He will only do what is best for you. Trust Him, don’t blame Him. Despite the problems in this life, there is coming a day when it will be worth it all for eternity.
I pray today that you will know God’s love for you; that you will trust God’s choices for your life; that you will know God never does things wrong; and that you will have a life of perfection for eternity in heaven with God some day.
