“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” Ecclesiastes‬ ‭8:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬. There are many people who mistakenly think that God doesn’t take notice of the things happening in this world. They question how God could allow these evil things and not bring judgment upon them. But may we as God’s children realize that nothing has escaped God’s all-seeing eyes. The fact that He does not judge immediately, as men deserve, is more evidence of His patience and long suffering! Thank God, He is not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance. Each of us can be thankful that we did not receive the judgment that we deserved. Even when it seems that evil people are getting by, we can be certain that God is a just God and there will come a time of reckoning and judgment. As one writer said, “The wheels of God grind slow, but they grind exceedingly fine”. So let us have the faith to know, that God has not forgotten! He is still a just and holy God. And let us pray that His mercy will continue upon this wayward generation.
