Job 30:26



26 When I looked [qavah] for good [towb], then evil [ra`] came [bow'] unto me: and when I waited [yachal] for light ['owr], there came [bow'] darkness ['ophel]. KJV-Interlinear



26 'When I expected good, then evil came; When I waited for light, then darkness came. NASB



One of the greatest failures of people in life, come from their unreasonable expectations out of life.


Most of the worlds population look to philosophies, religions, beliefs that are outright lies.


They will be disappointed.


Most of the people of civilized cultures, look to the many standards, which they have set up to insure their continued prosperity, or their continued beliefs in the standards which they have established for themselves.


They will be disappointed.


We are now beginning the political season for our national elections. Many people look to their own beliefs in this principle or that principle, which they have decided is better than the other guys set of principles. The struggle is for power regardless of what anyone thinks.


But in the end of it all, Jesus Christ controls history. He may allow the people to have what they want, or He may impose some set of circumstances in order to drive history in a direction of His choosing, regardless of what the people want. In either case, Gods plan is better than mans, though man will celebrate his victory regardless of the outcome.


Job explains here, exactly what Solomon said, 'All is vanity.'


That simply means that anything and everything from this world is worthless emptiness.


Sure you have issues that are important to you - taxes, abortion, war, work, inflation, the cost of insurance, the cost of gasoline, environment, illegal aliens, and this list can go on and on. But, what good are any of them, if you have no spiritual life?


Your life here on this earth is temporary. Human history is temporary. This world exists only on a temporary basis. If the worlds people paid as much attention to their spiritual lives as they do to their own opinions, then this world would have no problems. We would already be in the Millennium. No, we would already be in the eternal state!


But no. Humanity cannot accelerate Gods plan. Humanity cannot attain Gods objectives.


We expect one thing and get another. We make plans, and then life happens. Something should tell us that we are not in control. But then, who is going to believe the Bible anyway?


One day, life will teach you the very seriousness of life. When is that going to happen in your life?


We will all vote eventually, for our favorite candidate. That is a responsible action for everyone. But more important, we should all get serious about our Bible study. After all, candidates will come and go. Some we will like, and others we will not like.


Life will continue in accordance with Gods plan, and man will continue to expect one thing and get another. Man will continue to make issues in life, more important than spiritual growth. Man will continue to disregard Bible doctrine, and therein will be the source of mans eventual surprise.


Life is serious. Your spiritual life is the single most important thing that you will ever have in our life. It means the difference between the Lake of Fire or heaven. It means the difference between the normal blessings of heaven, and the phenomenal beyond imagination blessings of heaven. Both sets of differences are infinite in their nature.


But then, none of this means anything to you, if you don't really care. There are just too many issues that are more important to folks in life. More important than doctrine. They are easily insulted, or become easily defensive over issues when Bible doctrine does not genuinely exist in their life.


And then, most folks won't really care until they encounter real, repeat, real disaster in their life.
