When Life Is Unfair

If I was where God wanted me, why were things going south? Isnít smooth sailing a sign of Godís blessings?

Jobís friends thought so. One discouraging report after another arrived. Property, children, servants; all gone in a matter of minutes. Then he was afflicted with a case of boils and a faithless wife to boot. His fair weather friends cameled over and told him unconfessed sin was the reason for his troubles.

Jesusí disciples were probably confused too. They had watched Jesus feed five thousand plus with five loaves of bread and two fish. Then he told them to cross to the other side of the lake.

Obeying and now far from land, they encounter a fierce storm. But the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.(Matthew 14:24 NIV) The wind and waves were merciless. Seemed pretty unfair for a group of men who had left all to follow him.

Ever been there? You worked hard for your spotless credit record, only to have your spouse leave you and the bills. Now the creditors are pouncing.

Or you reared your children by adhering to the ďTrain up a child in the way they should go and when theyíre old they will not depart from itĒ principle. But they did and trampled on your heart in the process.

Actually, God never promised life would be fair; only that he would be with us and take the bad and mold good from it. Expecting life to be fair sets us up for disappointment with God and can also lead to bitterness.

When Jesus came to the disciples walking on water, Peter wanted to walk to him. He didnít make it far because he began looking at the circumstances instead of Jesus. But Jesus didnít let him sink. He took his hand, placed him back in the boat and calmed the storm.

Difficult and unfair circumstances give God the opportunity to shine his goodness and power into our life. Like Peter, we need to trust him by faith regardless of the situation or whether we understand the reason for it.

Prayer: Holy Father, enable us to trust Your wisdom when life deals us unfair blows. www.lovelinesfromgod.com


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
