My Title: Find your REST in Him
My Verse: 16
"Your people shall be my people, and your God my God."
Oh DANG. Mind melt. Ruth is returning with Naomi BECAUSE she is going WHERE SHE KNOWS THE LIVING AND TRUE GOD IS!
As those ADOPTED INTO God's family I think we can allow ourselves to take our eyes off of Jesus and the hope that we have in Him and focus more on the scary situations that He's allowed to surround us. We forget the weight and measure of the struggles in this life when we have to face them without the hope of Savior that has promised to never leave us. - Ruth knew what the cold dark and ruthless, godless world had to offer. She had also seen the light of a true, loving and LIVING God in this new family. She was willing to risk her LIFE on the HOPE that His love would find a way to adopt her into His people.
