Did you know that there are three keys that will equip you to come out of any storm victoriously? Those three keys are sticking, standing, and staying. You may be familiar with them from the previous post. Let’s continue to explore these three keys, shall we?
Many times, we go through storms and we go through dilemmas in life that makes us feel like quitting. It makes us feel like throwing in the towel because we don’t know the end result of the storm. But I’m here to tell you that if you stand on the Word of God and stick close to God; it is always going to work in your favor!
I want to continue with the story of Ruth and Naomi. Ruth and Naomi are in a storm. Their husbands have passed away and they no longer have a covering or a provider. Naomi is discouraged and she tells her daughter in laws to leave her and return to the life they had before they met her.
Ruth would not leave Naomi. She chose to stand with her and I believe it was because Ruth honored Naomi, but she also honored the God Naomi served. Have you ever been in a situation so discouraging it made you lose sight of your faith in a moment? I believe Naomi was in that situation but Ruth stood with her in faith.
There are times in our lives when it does not look like we are going to prosper. It does not look like we are going to get ahead, if we continue to stick and stand where we are. It looks like nothing is happening. But can I encourage you?
When it looks like nothing is happening it is because God is working behind the scene in your favor!
God knew he had a plan for Ruth and Naomi but they had to trust Him. Will you trust Him?
Just because you are going through a struggle, a storm, or a moment of hardship does not mean that the Lord has forsaken you. Many of us have lived long enough to testify about old storms and you probably couldn’t see your way out of that one; but you made it out! You will also make it out of this one. You just have to trust God by standing on His word. This too shall pass!
Be blessed. Be encouraged!
