What did Ruth see that Naomi did not initially see?
” And Naomi said, See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law. And Ruth said, Urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God my God.” Ruth 1:15-6.
Naomi, Ruth’s mother-in-law, had seen so many tragedies and failures that made her put limitations on what God can do and had resolved to just fold her hands in an all hope is lost attitude.
Ruth had inner convictions.
While Naomi was looking at the facts of life.
What we sometimes call empirical evidence.
Apparently, Naomi had knowledge of Yahweh that she and her late husband shared with their two sons from where Ruth as a wife to one of the sons, had a purposeful encounter with the God of destiny.
Ruth, in the text above, positively confessed that Naomi’s people shall be her people.
She knew inside of her that her journey to the purposeful fulfillment of her life destiny was in following Naomi to connect with her people.
She did not allow the incidents of the death of her father-in-law, her husband, and his brother to shake her off her God-given destiny.
How are we today allowing one or two incidents to derail our God-given destiny?
One experience of disappointment had made some people walk out of marriage, business, and personal relationships.
Yet precisely at the beginning, you know what God has explicitly told you about the relationship.
We quickly find offense with the church, pastor, or ministry where God has specifically assigned us to blossom and be fulfilled.

It could even be an idea that heaven has revealed that will prosper us, but two or three disappointments have made us abandon that dream.
To some, it might be the failure of an examination.
Has that made you given up on the career and profession altogether?
Today I want to remind you of the inner conviction of Ruth that made her stay true.
She believed, confessed, and acted on her purpose.
Her life today is linked with the lineage of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Many Christians today wrongly depend on social media to form opinions and make crucial life decisions that should be Bible-based.
Are you one of them?
Let God be your guide, search the scriptures and spend time in prayers.
Be like Ruth and stay true to your destiny, and do not limit yourself to life’s current circumstances like Naomi initially did.
