3 And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.

4 And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.

5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.

6 Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the Lord had visited his people in giving them bread.

7 Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.

8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother’s house: the Lord deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.

9 The Lord grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.

10 And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.

11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?

12 Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;

13 Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the Lord is gone out against me.

MESSAGE:

Our Fire Scripture today is about the story of a woman called Ruth. She was a Moabite married to one of the sons of Naomi.

Naomi, with her husband and their two sons, went to the land of Moab in search of food because of the famine that broke out in Bethlehem. After a period of time in Moab, she lost her husband and two sons and was left destitute.

So, she decided to return to Bethlehem and told her two daughters-in-law to stay in their land to find new husbands for themselves. Orpah consented and stayed back but Ruth refused and vowed to follow her wherever she went. Naomi tried to dissuade her from going with her to Bethlehem but she refused and preferred to stay with her regardless of what the challenges might be in a foreign land. She refused to look back. Her resolution is aptly captured in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 9:62 that says, “Anyone who puts his hand on the plough and looks back is not fit for the kingdom.”

Orpah went back to her idolatry but Ruth moved on to become an ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ruth did not only renounce her heathen past but embraced her new future with a firm faith in the God of Israel. In Ruth 1:16, she said, “Thy God will be my God.” She had a deep affection for her mother-in-law and above all an overriding commitment to the God of Israel.

Ruth had no difficulty in finding a task to gainfully occupy her attention. She decided on a certain field, not by chance but under the controlling providence of God. There she met with Boaz –a relative of her late father-in-law, who later redeemed her.

Beloved, trust in the Lord with your heart and you will experience His awesome power. How wonderful is it to know that God is working for your highest good even when you are not conscious of it. Ruth was a destitute widow who risked her honour at the threshing floor of Boaz but at the end, she became the wife of Boaz. This is a good example of how we must trust God.
