Expect His Favor

Today's Scripture

Ruth 4:14–15, NIV 

The women said to Naomi: “Praise be to the LORD, who this day has not left you without a guardian-redeemer. May he become famous throughout Israel! He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age.” 

Today's Word

After the death of her husband and two sons, Naomi had felt heartbroken, empty, and bitter. But when her daughter-in-law Ruth fell in love and married Boaz and had a baby named Obed, Naomi’s life was renewed. She took care of that baby like he was her own son and was happier than she’d ever dreamed. What’s significant is that Obed became the grandfather of David, and out of David’s family line, Jesus came. Naomi couldn’t see it, but through her heartbreak she became instrumental in our Savior being born. 


You may be at an empty place. Perhaps you don’t see how you could ever be happy again. If Naomi were here, she would tell you that’s not how your story ends. God has things in your future better than you’ve imagined. You may not understand the hardship right now, but trust Him. It’s all a part of His plan. Keep believing, keep living with passion, keep expecting His favor. He’s going to bring you to a blessed place, where you’re more fulfilled, more rewarded than you’ve ever been. 

Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You that You know best when it comes to the difficulties that come into my life. Thank You that Your plans are always so much more fulfilling and bigger than my plan. I declare that You are in control, and at the right time You will get me to where You want me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
