Read the Bible in a Year 
This morning read Job 20 and 21 

When Do the Wicked Receive Their Due? 

Job's friends argued that he was suffering because of his sin, that God was punishing the man for sin that Job had not yet confessed. They believed that the wicked receive their due now. However, Job said correctly, 

30	For the wicked are reserved for the day of doom; 
	They shall be brought out on the day of wrath. 
	(Job 21:30). 

Do the wicked ever receive their due in this life? Oh, yes, that does happen sometimes. Sometimes it does not, but that does not mean we should despair or that the wicked should be happy, because they will meet their Maker, and it will not be a good meeting for them. 

Therefore, have peace in your heart, knowing that there is a God in heaven who will deal with all people in equity and justice.
