The Lord Who Rebuilds
According to the verse "How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you." (Psalm 31:19) Ruth joined with Naomi and sought after the living God. The empty lives of theirs were filled with the abundant grace of God. "The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them." (Psalm 145:18-19).Ruth and Naomi lived piously for God by throwing away their gods and by looking up to the only true God. The Lord filled Ruth with great character that the people from the city looked at her and respected her highly. She had given herself to great obedience to her in-laws and to the word of God. Due to this the blessings of God came upon Ruth. The Lord built the life of Ruth according to the verse from Proverbs 3:33 "The LORD blesses the home of the righteous." Through Naomi's spiritual advice, Ruth was married to a man named Boas and also gave birth to her daughter named Obed which made her in-laws happy. Her entire city was proud of her.
Most holy God, I praise you and lift your name on high. I thank you for consoling me from my deepest sorrows. I will give you all the preference from my heart and in my family. Lord, abide in my house. You be our rock and fortress. Lead our family with your righteous right hand. Lord, fulfill the desires of my heart. Build our family and our house. Help me to walk in righteous ways. I pray this prayer in Jesus name, Amen.
