Dear Brothers and Sisters,
God had already prepared a blessing of favor for Naomi before she returned to her homeland. As her people rejoiced in seeing her, she was unable to rise up in rejoicing along with them. She couldn’t see the forest for the trees.
There are times when God is preparing us for a blessing that we are unable to see because our situation is clouding our view. Let us be mindful that God is greater than our situations and behind the scenes He has already provided the Blessing!! Let us praise Him in advance.
Love and Joy in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“So the two of them continued on their journey. When they came to Bethlehem, the entire town was excited by their arrival. “Is it really Naomi?” the women asked. “Don’t call me Naomi,” she responded. “Instead, call me Mara, for the Almighty has made life very bitter for me. I went away full, but the LORD has brought me home empty. Why call me Naomi when the LORD has caused me to suffer and the Almighty has sent such tragedy upon me?” So Naomi returned from Moab, accompanied by her daughter-in-law Ruth, the young Moabite woman. They arrived in Bethlehem in late spring, at the beginning of the barley harvest.”
Ruth 1:19-22 NLT
