Job 24:24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone And brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, And cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
It doesn’t matter who you are. Life is short. Death is certain. For some reason in the middle of life we can begin to think that things are great. We can think that we will live forever here on this earth. We think that we really own things but Job is reminding us that life is short.
It doesn’t matter who you are you are going to die. You can have your moments of glory but that is all they are. You can have great times in your life but it will soon end.
The only thing of real value is to realize that you have sinned against a holy God and repent of that sin. We must come to the place that we see our need of a Savior and trust the Lord Jesus.
Then we will really live and live forever. Then we will really be exalted and blessed and not just for the moment. God is good. We must learn to enjoy Him and all that He has for us now and then!
