Ruth was committed and loyal to a man she called her husband but he died. She found a mother in her mother in-law but Naomi was bitter. Ruth was still committed to Naomi. Ruth understood Naomi had lost two sons and a husband, so as a human being she’ll definitely feel disappointed.
But she said to them, Do not call me Naomi; call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me.
Ruth did not care about Naomi’s state of mind, she was all about commitment and loyalty to the woman.
I know there are people who have gotten to a point in their lives where they feel the Lord has forgotten them. The Word of God made them believe that if they seek first the kingdom of God, all other things will be added unto them but nothing seems to go well. They have fasted, prayed and done everything they are supposed to do but nothing seems to work. All they have now is faith because that is what is expected of them.
Should they still hold on to the things of God?
Unlike Abraham who received a Prophetic word about how things will turn around, Ruth had nothing. Ruth had no promise from God about some divine blessing in store for her if she made this great commitment. She had no spouse, no possessions or supporting revenue. She gave up the prospects of a husband to devote herself to an old and bitter woman but her reward was beautiful.
Unlike Ruth who did not have any word from God to assure her that she will be fine someday, you might have a Prophetic word hanging over your life, so do not give up. Just try holding on, everything will fall in place and when you become a diamond you’ll understand why life had to put so much pressure on you. Your breakthrough isn’t like the normal type of breakthrough so please have just a little more patience.
