Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of “ Ruth 2;12 “ A full reward be given to you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”
The Lord is telling that you and your children who have come under the Lord’s wings for refuge will receive a great reward. You may lack some blessing. It can be a family blessing, business blessing, blessing in your ministry or even in your education. Today, you have come under the wings of the Lord who will fulfil all those shortcomings. Ruth faced a great downfall in her life. She lost her husband at a young age and was a young widow. She did not have the heart to return to her mother’s house instead she stayed with her mother-in-law. On one hand, she faced losses and on the other, things were not promising. However, she accepted what the Lord ordained for her and followed her mother-in-law and fell at the feet of the Lord for her refuge. She said, to Naomi, “ Your people shall be my people, and your God shall be my God. Though she came from Moab, she chose to serve the God of Israel. The Lord of Israel was everything to her.
Whatever trouble or losses you may have today, come under the wings of the Lord for refuge. The Bible tells us, that He is the shadow who protects us. It means the Lord is coming along with you as a shadow of protection. Greater will be the reward for you if you are under the wings of the Lord. Your whole family can be under the wings of the Lord. Your entire family will be safe under the shadow of the Lord. The Lord will protect you from all evil. The Lord did the same for Ruth, didn’t He? He beautifully rebuilt her life by bringing Boaz into her life. There is life and blessings under the wings of the Lord. Come and be blessed.
Prayer: Loving Lord, we thank you! We thank You for rebuilding the life of Ruth, Ruth who lost her life, fell at the feet of God for refuge. You gave her a wonderful husband and son. You blessed her with a life of contentment. In the same manner, keep your children under the shadow of your wings and preserve them. Let not any disease or sickness come near them. Keep them under the shadow of your wings and protect them. Let them receive permanent job, in case they are looking out for a job. Bless them with the gift of a child. Let your children receive a complete life.
