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.”
Elimelech threw all caution to the wind and travelled to Moab.
Friend, you cannot receive just any help; that it gives a semblance of help doesn’t mean it came from God. Many demonic helps are available but are traps of the enemy. You must be weary of where you go for help.
Isaiah 31:1 “Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!”
Isaiah 31:1, shows clearly the places men run to when in dire need. He listed them as Egypt, horses, chariots and horsemen.
The word Egypt means adversary, to assault and bind up. When you go to an enemy to seek for help you’re doomed. Don’t rush to get help from men because they appear strong and mighty, the end is always calamitous.
Elimelech whose name means a powerful, God appointed king and ruler completely forgot who he is and rushed to the enemy’s territory for help. Though he had a little comfort initially, the enemy eventually took his life and that of his children.
Isaiah 31:1 admonished us that when in trouble the only genuine place of help is the LORD GOD. When famine breaks out in any area of your life, ask the LORD for direction and obtain His instructions.
It will interest you to know that Bethlehem simply means “house of bread”! There can never be insufficient bread at the bakery, while Judah means praise.
In famine, praise God and ask Him to show you where the factory is located.
Don’t leave the factory and rush to a retail point. Your Bethlehem-judah is sufficient for you.
