When Life seems Unfair...
Surely God is good to Israel, To those who are pure in heart! But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling, My steps had almost slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant as I saw the prosperity of the wicked (Psalms 73:1-3).
What do you do when life seems unfair? We all know that life happens every day whether good or bad....life just has a way of happening and sometimes it's just out of our control.
In Psalms 73 it shares how Asaph was feeling. Asaph knew God was good and He trusted God, but Asaph was also disturbed about the prosperity of the wicked. You see we can relate to this Psalm in many ways. We see ungodly people prospering all the time and doing rather well in life, but many times as Christians we see the struggle and endure unfair situations and wonder when are things going to turn around. We pay our tithes and still struggle in our finances at times. We fast, pray, and trust God when we don't understand and things still seem to never change at times. Matthew 5:45 states that God maketh the sun to rise on the evil and on the good. We know that God is good and His goodness is towards us all. Some may not see this as the truth because their heart has been hardened, and they may have endured some very tragic events in their lives. A healing is needed in times like this to mend that broken heart, or to replace that bitterness with harmony. I can say without a shadow of doubt that God is a good God and He is also a just God who loves each and everyone of us with an everlasting love. We must keep our eyes stayed on Christ and not be distracted by the things of this world. It's not always easy, but this is where the enemy steals our focus. When we are watching the wicked prosper and feel as if God has abandoned us know that it's a lie, and everything is not always as it appears. Stay focused and keep your faith in God.
Beloved be encouraged and don't allow the winds of adversity to steal your joy or your faith. When the unexpected happens in your marriage, finances, on the job, family, business, health or ministry, just remember God and follow His principles even when you don't understand.
When life seems unfair, we must continue to hold to God's unchanging hand.

Continue to hold on and open up your heart to God and be totally honest about your feelings. Ask God to help you and to keep you, but don't you dare give up. Hold on and keep the faith because trouble don't last always.
Be blessed beloved and just stand back and watch God work that situation out in your life. I declare supernatural favor over your life in Jesus name!
