Have you ever wondered how long until God puts an end to all the bad things that happen in this world? Where is God while all this evil continues in the world?
You are not alone. Many people have asked this question, including people in the Bible. David asked, “How long Lord? Will you be angry forever?” Psalm 79:5
In other words, when will you do something God? Like “revenging the blood of thy servants which is shed?” Psalm 79:10
This type of revenge is not about getting even, but more about serving justice or making things right. If someone is a murderer, they will go to jail and may even receive the death penalty, if justice is served.
The prophet Habakkuk also asked, “O Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear!” Hab. 1:2
