Why Do The Wicked Prosper?

Why do the wicked prosper while we struggle?” Have you ever thought that? At times we can look around and see that the wicked are prospering and we ask the Lord, “Why?”

Why do the wicked prosper while we struggle? Why does everyone else seem to make money while we struggle?

The Psalmist had those same questions. In Psalms 73, the Psalmist says, “So I tried to understand why the wicked prosper.

  But what a difficult task it is! Then I went into your sanctuary, O God,

and I finally understood the destiny of the wicked.”

Notice the Psalmist said, “…Then I went into the sanctuary of God…”

He was questioning things…until he went to God’s house and there he saw the future of the wicked. He saw that in the end, they were punished.

The same is true of us. We see how the wicked prosper. We see that they seem to be doing well. They aren’t living for God but they are doing well. So what gives?

But when we get a heavenly perspective, we see that they are punished in the end.

So, Christian, don’t give up. Don’t stop serving Christ. Even though the wicked prosper in the end, God rewards those who serve Him.

Maybe you are trying to do the right thing in business but the wicked are doing better due to some unethical practices. Don’t stop doing what’s right. Keep doing right and God will bless us in the end.

The Psalmist said, “I tried to understand why the wicked prosper and what a difficult task it is…until I went into the sanctuary of God…” He saw things from God’s perspective and things changed. We must do the same.
