Ruth 3:4 And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.
You may recall in my devotion a few weeks back "You Want Me To Do What??" I shared about a letter I had written that contained my whole heart. Well, in the last few days I have learned that the letter never made it to its intended recipient. So of course, knowing how the letter came about I have been more than confused!!!! As we often do I had been discussing the situation with some friends and of course everyone has their own opinions and ideas about what I should do. "
Over the last couple of months there have been two different sermons preached at AwakingLife Church that referenced the book of Ruth. One was by Pastor Ant and the other by Joel Honeycutt. Each of them encouraged us to go home and read the book of Ruth. Both times I thought to myself, "I've read Ruth a million times." While pondering the situation with the "missing" letter I took out a sheet of paper and wrote the question "what is the next step? I got out my Bible and began to read about Ruth and Boaz, hoping it would renew my hope that God would answer my prayers about finding love again. But, the words that really hit me were the ones where Naomi tells Ruth "...... go in, uncover his feet, and lie down, and he will tell you what to do."
Go to His feet and He will tell you what to do!!!!!
The truth is that although we may have people in our life that we can go to for godly advice our answers are only found at the feet of Jesus!!! We have to take all our cares and concerns, dreams and desires and cast them at the feet of Jesus. We can do this knowing that He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7)
You may be saying to yourself "didn't you know that already?' Well, yes I did!! But don't we sometimes get so involved in our troubles and unanswered prayers that we need a little reminder. Or is that just me????
So this week if you are struggling with an issue that you need an answer for let me remind you to "Go to His feet and He will tell you what to do!!!!!"
I pray this has encouraged you in some way. I would love to hear your comments.
