The Kitchen Table Day 23
Today’s Reading: Psalm 37:1-17; Ruth 3:1-13; Luke 6:17-26
But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace. Psalm 37:11
You can only trust God by obeying Him. Our behavior is the evidence of our belief. Ruth, the foreign widow, not only believes in the God of Naomi but she behaves in obedience to the God of Naomi. Homeless, hapless, and helpless, she simply believes and behaves accordingly. The meek shall inherit the land. She’s humble, not hopeless. She simply believes and behaves accordingly. And just like Jesus does for the needy in Luke 6, God changes her situation in a moment. It’s not about forcing the issue or twisting people’s arms, it’s about trust and obey, for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus than to trust and obey. God’s got this!
