Yesterday I read the book of Ruth. What a special little jem. A book of hope, faith and trust - and a demonstration of the perfect will of God. The book starts with tragedy and ends with the birth of Obed, the father of Jesse, who is the father of David ... the line of Jesus!
How easy it is for us to read the story beggining to end and see how wonderful God truly is. Without the pain, heartache and trials - Ruth would not have been in Boaz' fields. To then marry him and give birth the Obed! Ruth is a model of faithfulness and the blessing that comes from devotion to God and His ways. God rescues those that continue to seek Him. GLORY!!!!
I continue to daily take refuge in the Lord, He is the one that I seek for fullness and love. He fills me up. In my weaknesses, He is made strong, I am so thankful for the strength of the Lord and that through Him, all is well.
prayer: Lord, I thank you that You will redeem all my difficult situations and use them for Your purpose and glory!
GRACE AND PEACE!
