12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: 13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God. 14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity. Ecclesiastes 8:12-14
We may think someone is getting away with wrong doing. But “it shall not be well with the wicked.” God is always awake. Nothing passes the Lord unnoticed. In God’s time the wicked will be punished.
As Solomon says, it sometimes appears that righteous men get what the wicked deserve and wicked men get what the righteous deserve. As we read in other areas of the Bible this is not so, Galatians 6:7 tells us, Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
There are many verses that let us know, in God’s time, God will meet out justice.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Romans 12:19
God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. Psalm 7:11
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews
So the next time you think someone is “getting away with it”, think again and thank God for His perfect judgment.
Have a blessed day,
