All glory and praise is to the Lord Jehovah the father of glory for making it possible for us to see midweek in the month of October, 2016. Amen. Father Lord never depart from us rather continue to be our God and make all around us speak of the goodness of God in our life. Amen. Thank for the new day in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Let us study the life of Naomi the wife of Elimelech who gave birth to Mahlon and Chilion. She left her home town with her family to another because of famine and there his two sons got married and later died with their father and left their two wives with their mother a widow. On the course of the journey back to their home town, Naomi called on her daughter in-laws to return but Ruth among the two decided to stay with her mother in-law despite the situation of things.
“So she and her daughters-in-law got ready to go back from the country of Moab, for news had come to her in the country of Moab that the Lord, in mercy for his people, had given them food. And she went out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on their way to go back to the land of Judah. And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go back to your mothers' houses: may the Lord be good to you as you have been good to the dead and to me: May the Lord give you rest in the houses of your husbands. Then she gave them a kiss; and they were weeping bitterly. And they said to her, No, but we will go back with you to your people. But Naomi said, Go back, my daughters; why will you come with me? Have I more sons in my body, to become your husbands? Go back, my daughters, and go on your way; I am so old now that I may not have another husband. If I said, I have hopes, if I had a husband tonight, and might have sons, Would you keep yourselves till they were old enough? would you keep from having husbands for them? No, my daughters; but I am very sad for you that the hand of the Lord is against me. Then again they were weeping; and Orpah gave her mother-in-law a kiss, but Ruth would not be parted from her. And Naomi said, See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods: go back after your sister-in-law. But Ruth said, Give up requesting me to go away from you, or to go back without you: for where you go I will go; and where you take your rest I will take my rest; your people will be my people, and your God my God. Wherever death comes to you, death will come to me, and there will be my last resting-place; the Lord do so to me and more if we are parted by anything but death. And when she saw that Ruth was strong in her purpose to go with her she said no more.“ Ruth 1:6-18 (BBE)
Ruth as a wife got fix with her mother-In-law according to her understanding though not revealed. She patiently made a vow to be contended with the fate and strongly believe a purpose is fixed in the future for her in the family. She was kept living for the hope of restoration for Naomi and family at large. Amen. I pray that your benefactor will be fixing to you and your purpose mate will not depart from you in Jesus name. Amen. This mid-week will release your testimonial song in Jesus name. Amen.
Brethren by the grace of God we shall continue with the message of Ruth and Naomi tomorrow so as to see the extreme of their testimonial songs. Amen. Good morning and enjoy the day. Amen.
