“So Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabite, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.” Ruth 1:22
Generally it seems too late for God to do one thing within the pure scheme of issues. Circumstances have been set in movement. A brand new starting appears not possible. But, God is highly effective. When a scenario is at its worst, that’s when God can present up together with his finest reply.
There was a famine in Bethlehem. So, Naomi, her husband, and her two sons left Bethlehem for Moab to discover a higher life. A life the place they may have greater than sufficient. Who doesn’t need that for his or her household?
When Naomi and her household left Bethlehem, the opposite households stayed behind. They confronted the famine — maybe as a result of they trusted in God.
“Can this be Naomi?” the individuals from Naomi’s city requested on her return to Bethlehem as a widow. Accompanied by solely Ruth, a overseas daughter-in-law now additionally widowed, Naomi’s scenario would have appeared even worse. Whereas Ruth seemed to be misplaced, Naomi nearly didn’t have a selection within the matter since Ruth had insisted that she’d comply with her in every single place she would go.
Whereas the presence of Ruth wouldn’t allow Naomi to overlook her deceased sons, that exact same Ruth grew to become a catalyst to her mother-in-law’s new starting. They each get one other likelihood to be comfortable once more by collaborating within the harvest. Naomi put apart her previous as she helped Ruth discover a new husband and bear a son.
God can flip issues round for the nice. We solely must look ahead to his blessings and use them to assist others as an alternative of trying again on our previous.
Father God, I ask you to assist me seize the chance granted to me to assist another person to allow them to have a greater life. Assist me remember that you could flip any circumstance right into a blessing if we solely belief in you. Amen.
