Ruth 1:1 “Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.”

Over the next couple of days, our meditation will be from the book of Ruth and we’ll be picking vital lessons as the Holy Spirit teaches.

In our focal scripture, the land of Bethlehem was hit by a terrible famine which made a particular family and probably others to leave town. It was a precarious situation which can be likened to an economic meltdown in our contemporary days.

I noticed that one of the major causes of these famine was wrong leadership. The Bible says, “…in the days when THE JUDGES RULED that there was a famine in the land.”

There was a leadership structure in place, the land had Judges ruling them but unfortunately famine prevailed. When a wrong ruler is in place famine is inevitable. One of the duties of a good leader is to make his people comfortable and curb famine.

Friend, if you’re experiencing famine in any area of your life, you must start asking questions. If you’re broke and wallowing in poverty, you need to do an evaluation of your financial adviser.

If you have challenges with your career, you must consider who your career mentor is. Every problem in our lives is traceable to a “Judge”. Who you’re looking at and listening to determines who and what you become.

Hear these:

Judges 2:16 “Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them.”

Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice but when the wicked beareth rule the people mourn”

We can see that one of the main functions of the Judges is to free us from the hand of spoilers which includes famine. On the other hand when your leader is wicked, problems are inevitable.

Beloved, your leader determines your comfort in life.

Love you BiG
