The Bumpy Road
But Ruth said, Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. Ruth 1:16–17 ESV
Ruth walked along the road thinking about what had recently happened. Her husband had died, her father-in-law had died, and her brother-in-law as well. Now it was just her and Naomi her mother-in-law, and they were penniless.
Naomi urged Ruth to turn back and go home to her family, but Ruth clung to her. Ruth told Naomi, “Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay.” Even though much hardship lay before them, that is where Ruth’s destiny was. God blessed Ruth after this, and she is in the lineage of Jesus.
Sometimes I find that my destiny lies down the difficult path, and while on the way I am given a choice to turn back. I made my mind 5 years ago there s no turning back.Many turned back from following Jesus. Stay the course. God will fulfill His promises to you just as He did with Ruth, though it can be a bumpy road along the way.
He has given me a Promise and to you as well, Let’s
Stand on his Promises.
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
God Bless you, yours truly Sister Wanda!
