STAY AND FIGHT-1
Ruth 1:6 “Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.”
One of the greatest virtues a believer must possess is patience. Any man that cannot endure will find it difficult to live the life of faith. We now live in a fast paced world where patience is gradually going into extinction.
We all want fast food, fast internet, fast banking, fast cars and even “fast miracles”! If it cannot happen now, we don’t want it. In as much as technology is good, we must not be ignorant of how the devil is exploiting “fast paced” stuff to give us what God is not giving.
There was famine in the land quite alright but it didn’t last forever. In the passage of time BethlehemJudah, the house of bread eventually had bread, sufficient bread to eat, sell and give away.
Our focal scripture showed us that, “…for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.” The LORD changed the situation of Bethlehem from famine to abundance as He has promised but unfortunately Elimelech and his sons were all dead.
I discovered from that scripture that apart from Elimelech and his nuclear family, other people stayed back and survived; the famine didn’t consume them. They stood their ground against famine and famine eventually gave way.
Friend, hear what God said:
James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Note carefully that God didn’t say the enemy won’t show up, He simply gave us a commandment to resist him. We were also told that if we resist him there is only one outcome, he will flee.
The word resist is not a “gentle word”, it is a militarized word that means to stand and fight against somebody or something.
To be continued…
