DEVOTION:

Ruth 1:16 Lord, Ruth said to Naomi, "Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God"


PRAYER:

Almighty and Holy God, As I sit in Your presence reading, I wonder where the first part of the week has gone. Yet, I pause to seek Your strength and courage, drawing inspiration from Your Word in the Book of Ruth. Just as Ruth displayed unwavering faith and bravery in the face of uncertainty, I ask that You fill my heart with the same boldness and trust in Your plan.

Lord, Ruth said to Naomi, "Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God" (Ruth 1:16). Her commitment and courage to step into the unknown inspire me. I pray for the courage to follow You, wherever You lead me, even when the path ahead seems unclear and daunting. Father, give me the strength to face my challenges with the assurance that You are with me. Help me to cling to Your promises and find comfort in Your presence. May I, like Ruth, demonstrate loyalty, love, and resilience, trusting that Your plans for me are good and that You will provide for my every need.

As I navigate through the rest of this week, let Your Spirit guide my decisions and actions. Fill me with hope, knowing that You are my refuge and strength. I place my trust in You, Lord, believing that with Your help, I can overcome any obstacle and face any fear. Thank You for the example of Ruth, and for being, through the Holy Spirit, my constant support and source of courage. I pray all this in Jesus' name. Amen.
