It is hard for us as believers to watch the wicked prosper. It was hard for Job then, and it is hard for us now. We know that justice will only come on the Day of Judgment, and we know that we only escape that judgment ourselves due to Christ's atoning work on the cross. That desire for justice comes from God. We are right to long for justice. We are right to loathe the fact that the wicked prosper. But we will not see that, at least not perfectly, here on earth. Sometimes we see earthly justice served. But more often than not, we need to trust that ultimately God's justice will prevail, and that in the end that is all that matters.
I find it interesting that often Job's thoughts often echo what God is going to tell Job near the end of the book. He marvels at God's greatness, power, and mystery.
And that's what we ought to focus on. God. When we take our eyes off ourselves and all our problems, difficulties, and trials; and instead, focus on God, dwelling on Him and His attributes, becoming consumed with knowing Him instead of knowing the answer to the question "why?", that is when we will be able to live until the day we finally see judgment come.
While we wait, we must remember to be grateful that Christ's incarnation, sinless life, atoning death, and overpowering resurrection enable us to escape the very judgment for which we wait.
