Bible Reading: Ruth 3
Memory Verse: Ruth 3: 18
Then Naomi said, “Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today.”
Good afternoon everyone! Today’s dose is a bit late and I apologise for that. This piece is the thirteenth episode of the Ruth Series. As I was meditating on Ruth chapter 3, I realized something very interesting. Unlike other Bible stories, the book of Ruth has every character portraying a quality of God or representing God. Have a look, each and every main character- Ruth, Naomi and Boaz. There are six more episodes till “The Ruth Series” end. Are you excited? I hope that you have been inspired and blessed by all the episodes of this series. What book do you think we would look at next? Send me your thoughts.
Today, we would be looking at “our matters.” In this case, matter is referring to our problems, troubles or everything concerning us. Anytime you close a deal- whether in business or not- the statement “It is settled” is said. This means that everything is a done deal. It has been sorted out and it will come through. That is what God does for his children. He settles all of our matters. No matter how big or small it is. God has settled it. Isnt that amazing.
Just like in the memory verse, wait and find out what happens. God is handling it, why fret? When you fret, does the problem or issue get solved? No. So why not relax and leave it to someone who can handle it? Is it not easier to relax? I understand. Sometimes, we feel helpless or useless if we do not do something about our situation. My dear brother or sister, God is handling it. Our God who never slumbers nor sleeps, is working on your behalf. Just like the memory verse, he will not rest until the matter is solved.
Throughout the Ruth series, we have seen how God manifested in every matter that was put before Ruth and Naomi. God kept them, protected them and fed them. That’s what my God does, when He is working for you, He would give you all you need to be comfortable so that you sit back and relax. By doing that, you will be able to see what He is doing and what He is about to do.
So from today, if you are going through anything (and you are a child of God), be assured that your matter is settled. Sit back and watch God’s tactical play in your life. From today, confess with your mouth, “My matter is settled by God’s Grace!” You will see it manifest. That is what confession does because there is a lot of power in the tongue. Once you speak, you create, move and shake things around. So create this sort of relaxation in your life. Move the devil away from your matter and Shake this matter around for your good. Amen!
Confess your sins to God and ask for forgiveness.
Ask God for peace.
Ask God to handle your matter.
Confess your victory.
Thank God for His Grace and Mercy upon your life.
Praise and worship the Lord, your God.
Today’s Prayer: Dear Lord,
Thank you for taking me through the night and giving me life this morning. I commit my day into your care Oh Lord. Help me to be a blessing to everyone I encounter today. Use me Oh God. Thank you for sending your son to die for my sins. I lift your name high up Oh God, for you are Great and your love endures forever.
Remember, today and always that God’s got your back. He would never forsake you. He is a loving a just God. So I have a question, “Is your matter settled?”
Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
