For what does it benefit someone to gain the whole world and yet lose his life? Mark 8:36 CSB
Ruth’s loyalty must have been a comfort to Naomi during the significant grieving she must have gone through losing her spouse and children. Naomi believed the Lord had turned against her yet God had a plan and a hope for not only her daughter-in-law, but for Naomi’s future of good and not evil (Jeremiah 29:11). Naomi must have been a wonderful mother-in-law to have these girls love her so much and especially Ruth who would rather be with her than return to her own family. What would my daughter-in-law’s say about me?
Ruth’s faithfulness and her destiny would be great in being the great, great grandmother of King David, in the line of our Lord Yeshua. Faithfulness to God and His people reap great reward! Boaz prophesied this not knowing that he would be the blessing to her initially and that God would use a Moabite woman as the ancestor of our Lord! Naomi in turn declares a blessing upon Boaz. God’s protection covers them and they also have plenty to eat and bring in income as necessary! Boaz is a like and type of our Lord Yeshua who is forever our kinsman redeemer!
Again, prophecy being fulfilled in our day! Any Believer who opposes Israel is not a Believer in my thinking (according to the Word, actuall). God loves Israel and will always be for Her and Her people! He has shown unmerited mercy through the ages since Abraham because Israel is His!
My God knows all things and declares things to come whereas we don’t know what the next second holds just like the volcano’s eruption recently! Life can be changed in a split second yet God knows and tells His “friends” just like He told Abraham, what was to become of Sodom and Gomorrah. On top of this He allowed Abraham to argue his case before the Lord, interceding on behalf of those who possibly were not evil.
Lord, I am Your witness. You told me this in the earliest of my days as a Believer (Isaiah 43:10). Thank You for the ability to witness and declare Your goodness, love and mercy! Thank You for ALWAYS loving me. Thank You that I am called by Your Name. You will be glorified for all eternity through Israel and the miracles You have never ceased to do for Her!
Many believe that President Trump is a like and type of Cyrus because of his love for Israel. I am watching Lord to see how You will direct him. YOU, not man will get all the glory!
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word. Ephesians 5:25-26 CSB
And all of the married women say, “AMEN”!
Lord, I just want to do what is right in Your eyes as it makes my life so much easier and better!
My God is my complete protection no matter what the circumstances may be (Psalm 23). Only the Lord God Almighty has brought deliverance and salvation! You are my God who always makes a way where in the natural, there is none. You are my God of newness in my life! I am not stuck in any untoward circumstance. You remember my sins no more. This alone gives me reason to praise my God all of the days of my life! Thank You Lord that I can argue my case before You and You will show me the correct way. I love that my Lord loves sweet cane!
