Faith, Commitment, and Comfort
Ruth and Naomi, Orpah went through tragedies, they lost their husbands, Naomi lost her husband and her sins. Ruth, however she experienced tragedy her husband and her brother-in-law, father-in-law all died. Ruth had a sister-in-law Orpah, they all had decisions to make. Stay with Naomi their mother-in-law, or they could go back to their own country.
After Naomi lost her husband and her sins, she did not have anything to offer them, she was elderly she had no money. She tried to get her daughter-in-laws to leave her and return to their own land, Orpah did, but Ruth she stayed with Naomi.
Ruth, she had faith, she knew unless there was some divine intervention her future looked pretty dim. But, she chose to be faithful to her mother-in-law Naomi, and serve her God. Ruth 1:16,17
Many people, even in today’s times they will choose their comforts over hearing of any type of commitments and using their faith.
What they are not and don’t realize is when they act this way they loose completely out, and they end up missing out on the blessings and rewards of being Committed and faithful.
Ruth, she didn’t know what all her future held for her, but God did, and she was very bit and determined she was going to be a woman who wanted to serve God, and she wanted to continue to be by Naomi’s side.
Ruth, she wanted to be faithful, she loved Naomi and she wanted to do God’s will. They both Ruth and Naomi they went through some tough times but, they were keeping a good attitude, they were very Thankful for all they had whether it was a tiny bit or a little they were grateful no matter what, they were Thankful for all God gave them and provided for them.
God, was always there making special arrangements to bless them. Naomi, she had a relative named, Boaz which was very wealthy and he was a single man, and Boaz and Ruth married. Ruth 4:10
Faithfulness, led Ruth from her poverty into the abundance of God. Proverbs 28:20 says, that a faithful person will “abound with blessings.” Being faithful means: “we all have to endure some difficulty in our lives along the way, we will always endure some problems of some kind, but as long as we have faith, it makes us stronger and as long as we wait patiently for the Lord, we will see His Salvation and His Abundance in all our Circumstances.”
So, it’s comfort, Commitment and Faith which is your’s, I hope you don’t choose Comfort, because you will continue to loose out on ALL GOD wants for YOU and you will always live in lack in every direction you turn so, what do you choose?
