DCLM Daily Manna 2nd May 2023, Tuesday Daily Devotional written by Pastor W.F Kumuyi

TOPIC: Limit of Wickedness

READ: Job 21:1-21 (KJV)

KEY VERSE:
“How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.” – (Job 21:17)

MESSAGE:
A promising young man from a very poor background searched diligently for a decent job after his graduation but could not get one. Then he stumbled on a lady who connected him to a plum job and they agreed to marry. He bought estates in expensive areas of the city and within a year, was travelling around the world. In fact, more doors opened for him, which made him feel he had no need for God. Unfortunately, just when he thought he had reached the peak of his life dreams, things started to nosedive until he lost all. Yet, he did not seek God’s help.

Job was asking why the wicked flourished and prospered. They swam in wealth, grew old and their children had the best of life, sometimes at the expense of the righteous. For the wicked, their houses were safe and they did not have any need for God. They celebrated with harps and timbrels in parties and did not understand why anyone should waste their time in the presence of God or pray to Him. Job, however, realised that those thoughts of the wicked were mere delusions. They were only setting themselves up for destruction. Worse still, their children, who partook in the iniquity, would also share in the punishment. What then is the pleasure when all they boast about would come to nothing?

In the eyes of God, a wicked person is one who commits sins and refuses to repent. Our society has many people like that. They have no need for God; they trust in their riches, and are not bothered by the gospel. For them, once the system is working, there is no need for the salvation obtained through our Lord Jesus Christ. However, this is dangerous as God’s wrath will come upon all the wicked on the final day.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Pleasure derived from wickedness has but a short-run value.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Joshua 22-24
