Faithful Obedience and God's Providence
February 10, 2017 • Ruth 2
Waiting for God's timing is difficult, especially when it feels like everything in life is falling apart at once. We might feel angry, frustrated, maybe even abandoned by God. His seeming silence may leave us wondering if he cares. Some of us might feel helpless, wondering if there is anything we can do while we wait for his timing, or will doing something be forcing his hand or stepping outside his will? Turning to the book of Ruth provides answers and encouragement for these pressing questions. As the story of Ruth, Boaz, and Naomi continues, we discover a clear demonstration of God's providence and what God can do with the faithfulness of ordinary people. The source of God's provision and the way he answers our prayers just might surprise us!
