Faith Over the Familiar

by Hannah Ng’uni

But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God – Ruth 1:16 (NLT)

At a time were going back to her own family and staying in her homeland, a place that was familiar might have seemed like a safe and sensible option for Ruth, she chose to have faith in God and remain committed to Naomi even when it meant moving to a foreign land. If she stayed, perhaps we may not be reading about her today, a woman in the lineage of Jesus.

It is often easy to stay in a place familiarity when you don’t know what lies ahead, it may be comfortable and after all not everyone likes change. But what if your breakthrough is tied to your faith and commitment to God even in the midst of loss and uncertainty? Will you take the bold step to continue trusting in Him and obeying His instructions? In the last chapter, we see the change in Ruth’s story, God redeemed and restored her. So, let us remain steadfast in the Lord, our breakthrough shall surely come.

Father God, help me to remain steadfast in my walk with that even when life seems to be taking a different turn. I choose to put my trust in your plans and obey your direction for my life. I receive my breakthrough. In Jesus name, amen.
