This is hope. That our God cares for us, provides our needs and He even enables us to walk by faith every day.
First chapter of Ruth has a lot to say about it. She took a bold step to go with Naomi returning to Bethlehem with had nothing planned or even promises for her future. Naomi warned her that she would not get any benefit to follow her. But Ruth’s bold statement in verse 16 showed her perspective of how she saw her future. Her determination changed Naomi’s perspective of Ruth and her movite behind her decision.
I am pretty sure she heard about who God is when she lived with her husband and family. But them she also heard how Naomi blamed God for her losts and hard time. Yet still Ruth wanted to make Him her God. But why?
Ruth saw there was hope. She found hope in God of Israel in time of uncertain of her own future. She just trusted Him! She trusted in God whom she heard, especially when they returned to Bethlehem. She witnessed what God had done to His people after the long famine years they experienced.
There is hope in God who cares. There is hope in Him who workes in each of His children’s lives to meet their needs, to enable them to walk by faith every step they take. And WE ARE HIS CHILDREN! He cares for us!
My dear friends, there is hope in God who cares for you! I pray today for you to have hope only in Heavenly Father who loves you unconditionally. May God bless your faith richly today!
