Be Totally Committed To God. The Blessing Of God Is Upon The Head Of The Righteous. Don’t Allow Temporary Setback To Draw You Back Or Separate You From The Plan Of God.
“Now it came to pass in the days when the Judges ruled that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons”. Ruth1:1 KJV.
In our text above, this man left Bethlehem Judah because there was a temporary setback. The fact that there was famine in the land did not change the fact that the land is a land of bread. The fact that there is a challenge in your life has not changed the truth that you are blessed. The blessing of God is upon the head of the righteous. You should not change location because of a temporary situation. Many have taken permanent decision because of temporary situation.
You can either be positioned for the blessing or be positioned for destruction. After the death of Elimelech and his two sons, Ruth the Moabites returned with Naomi her mother-in-law while Opah went back to what she used to do. Ruth was blessed greatly by God but we never heard of Opah anymore. Ruth was positioned for a visitation and God overruled by His Grace on her behalf. God did not count the curse that was on Moab, He overruled the curse because Ruth was rightly positioned. When you are rightly positioned, the Grace of God will speak on your behalf and no curse can stand against you or the blessing of God on your life.
Grace spoke for Ruth because she was positioned. She was not looking up to anything other than the God of Abraham that she has been introduced to. She said. “I would rather serve Him than anything else”. That was her motivation. “Your God shall be my God” And because she clave to God, God remembered her. You cannot be positioned where God is and not be blessed. Today a whole book of the Bible is dedicated to this Moabitess. The one that the Bible said should not be among the congregation of the saints. Don’t allow temporary setback to draw you back or separate you from the plan of God.
