The Book of Ruth
Ruth was a stranger in a foreign land, she knew no one except her mother in law. The God of heaven,creator of heaven and earth was new to her. Yet she believed that whatever she would face in Judah is far better than what Moab had to offer her. Moab is her home country; she knew nothing else, yet she fund in Naomi a belief in a God that she could trust more than any gods that was in Moab. Although Ruth did not know where she was going and what would happen to her she went hoping for the best. Ruth allowed her faith to take her from the unknown to destiny. She put aside all that she believed in, all that she was expecting out of life; she used the opportunity to start a new life and ran with God. She did not think twice of letting go of the past, in order to embrace the future.
Tonight Lord I ask you to give me the faith like Ruth, who pressed through every obstacle that was in her way to embrace her destiny. I wonder what would happen if we just let go and trust God the way Ruth did. She was an ordinary woman who was in extreme circumstances; a woman who had every right to give up on life, but instead of giving up she trusted that God would make a way for her.
Whatever the circumstance you cannot give up, you must press beyond the pain, press beyond the shame, the guilt, press beyond hopelessness, press beyond your expectations of life and hold on to the truth of God's words and embrace destiny. There is only one way to survive in tough times, it’s to press beyond your pain. In spite of all you face, your hopes and dreams that are yet to be realized you must press past your pain. Engulf yourself with the presence of God; crave His presence more than anything else. Sing to the Lord at all times, let His praises continually be on your lips and meditate on His word in your heart. The word of God is your weapon,and praise is your defence. Nothing can overcome you when you are wrapped up and entangled in the presence of the Lord. Seek the Lord while he may be found don't wait until there is a crisis in your life to praise Him. Praise Him when you are happy, praise Him in the morning, praise Him during the day, praise Him during the night continue to praise the Lord and don't worry about anything. If you continue to praise the Lord you would be surprise to see how far the Lord takes you in little time. God is in control.
Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him at all times. Don't give up!
