Day 7: Giving up the Old for the New
Today we’re gleaning off the story of Ruth. A story of loyalty, loss, bravery and love.
Ruth was a woman who had lost everything and instead of going back to the life she knew, she went on loyally to follow her mother-in-law Naomi.
She made a commitment and followed through, without any provocation that her needs would be met or her life would be extraordinary. She went on in obedience to a life she did not know in a place she did not know.
How many of you know that life can take us through twists and turns? Are you committed to your calling to your dream despite of what you may go through in order to get there? Are you willing to trust God into the unknown?
Ruth and Naomi later arrived in Bethlehem, where Ruth began to pick up leftover grain left behind, freelancing mind you, and little did she know she found her future there. That very field was the field owned by Boaz, who while seeing her work in the field asked “Who does that young woman belong to?” She gained favor from the owner of that field.
When you’re obedient, working with what you are given you never know the attention or the favor that God may grant you.
Are you working with diligent hands?
Boaz later became the husband of Ruth, where Ruth also inherited not just a wonderful life, but she is part of the genealogy of Jesus.
Now that my friends is a faithful God.
Are you willing?
