Sometimes, God takes you where you never intended to go…
Does this describe you? Did you start life thinking you’re headed in one direction? But you quickly discovered that you’ve headed straight into what seems like a shipwreck of dashed hopes and dreams.
Then, just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, it suddenly dawned on you that God intends your life to be turned upside down.
One minute you say to yourself, “I’m following God’s direction. I’m in the center of his will.”
But the next thing you know, you’ve gone straight from one disaster into another. And it feels like there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.
If this predicament sounds like what you’ve been going through, maybe it’s time you took a good, long look at the book of Ruth.
In Partner’s in God’s Grand Plan, biblical expositor and theologian Dr. William Welty explains how Ruth and Nomi walked through dark times to become the hinge point around which events leading to Israel’s Messiah would turn. Along the way, both of them received nothing they wanted, but they received everything they desired.
