When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said nothing more.
Series: Ruth’s Loyalty
Naomi saw and understood that Ruth was not going to give up. The Bible says Ruth was determined to go with Naomi. It was an intentional decision by Ruth, not a decision led by feelings and emotions. Many times, we say we want to be nice to someone who may have hurt us, but if we are led by emotions, we may not feel like it.
What are your determinations? What are your convictions? What drives your days ahead? Are you intentional about what God has called you to do?
God was intentional about the people He has placed around you. He was intentional about their languages, their desires and about every detail. Are you determined to love them, to forgive them, to feed them, to stand with them? Our relationships will fail if we are led only by emotions and dreams. We need to have a solid strong determination, led by the Holy Spirit and our trust in God.
Think about the relationships that are weak in your life and not going the way God wants it to go. Whatever you are struggling with, tell God and pray about it. Tell Him you are determined to get this going in His way. God loves an intentional lover, an intentional church, an intentional giver.
May God’s voice take pre-eminence in your life and may you have the determination to stand by God’s word and voice in your life.
