STAY AND FIGHT-3
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.”
Elimelech couldn’t wait; Gehazi couldn’t wait, Lot didn’t wait and they all ended in tragedy. One of the greatest abilities a believer must possess is the ability to stand and fight. That’s why David said:
Psalms 144:1 “Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:”
The good news however is that, we are not fighting for victory, we are fighting from victory. We are fighting a fight that has already been won and concluded. We know the result and the outcome before we ever step into the ring!
Paul called us soldiers and I’m yet to see a soldier that does not fight. If a soldier is not in battle then he is preparing for one! Fight never catches a great soldier unaware.
2Timothy 2:3 “Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”
Enduring hardness is the process of resistance. Elimelech didn’t resist the famine, he just took off. In life, there might be discomfort here and there but if you hold your ground, you’ll come out tops.
Friend, in the passage of time, Naomi heard the good news about Bethlehem, I am glad to let you know that if you hold on, sons of men will also hear the news of how God has visited you and turned your captivity around.
Elimelech flee but others waited. It will interest you to know that the bible never recorded any death caused by the famine! Trust me, if there were it would have been documented. You remember there was once a famine in Samaria to the extent that women were eating their own children, so if it was that bad we would have read about it.
Friend, stay and fight. Resist the devil in prayer, fasting and with the word and watch him flee!
