Job 21:15 ” Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? What would we gain by praying to Him? “

Job was suffering, yet he looked at the wicked prospering, healthy, and happy and was confused. For like the Psalmist, he couldn’t understand how God would allow the wicked to flourish while he floundered. “For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.” (Psalm 73:3) It’s hard when we look at the opulence of the wicked in the world…especially when they callously scorn and shun God, and their attitude is, “Why do I need God? I’m happy and have everything I could ever want.” So in this verse Job may for a moment have questioned if it was really worth serving God…but he also knew that in the end, God’s justice would prevail over the lawless… but in the meantime, he would not lower himself into the depths of envy and covetousness.
