About This Message

 

1.         God can bless me when I’m hurting

During the time of the judges, there was a famine in the land. A man left Bethlehem in Judah with his wife and two sons to stay in the territory of Moab for a while.

Naomi’s husband, Elimelech, died, and she was left with her two sons.
Ruth 1:3 (CSB)

Both Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was left without her two children and without her husband.
Ruth 1:5 (CSB)

Return home, my daughters. Go on, for I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me to have a husband tonight and to bear sons.
Ruth 1:12 (CSB)

She and her daughters-in-law set out to return from the territory of Moab, because she had heard in Moab that the Lord had paid attention to his people’s need by providing them food.
Ruth 1:6 (CSB)

Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord punish me, and do so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.
Ruth 1:17 (CSB)

Naomi took the child, placed him on her lap, and became a mother to him. The neighbor women said, “A son has been born to Naomi,” and they named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.
Ruth 4:16-17 (CSB)

I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

2.         I can return to the Lord when I’m questioning

She and her daughters-in-law set out to return from the territory of Moab, because she had heard in Moab that the Lord had paid attention to his people’s need by providing them food.
Ruth 1:6 (CSB)

3.         I can embrace personal faith when I’m struggling

Naomi said, “Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. Follow your sister-in-law.” But Ruth replied: Don’t plead with me to abandon you or to return and not follow you. For wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you live, I will live; your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.
Ruth 1:15-16 (CSB)
