Psalm 119:105 tells us that God’s word is a lamp to our feet and light to our path. Meaning, if we profess God to be king over our lives, we are in other words saying that He has the final say in our lives. By this, we mean that his word guides us in both what we may consider small and big decisions. The presence of a path tells me there is a destination and that destination could be your destiny.
Can you trust and rely solely on God’s guidance today for the rest of your life? He is willing and able to guide you. He thinks well about you and his guidance is unto abundance, prosperity, soundness and all the good and perfect gifts. His guidance is not unto idolatry, compromise, mediocrity, or ordinary.
We are not told whether or not Elimelech consulted the Father for His decision making on where to take his family during the famine in Bethlehem, Judah. One thing we do know I the outcome of his decision – his death, the death of his two sons and the resulting widows.
The unchanging faithfulness of the Father overtimes prompts me to conclude that Elimelech’s decision was not of God. For the following reasons
-Elimelech was shortchanged as a result of the decision.
-His family suffered multiple irreversible loses.
-They were exposed perpetually to idol worship and lifestyle.
-He did not see or enjoy the wedding and marriage of his two sons.
-His wife Naomi and daughter-in-law returned to Bethlehem widows.
All the above-mentioned reasons in no way reflect the character of my God. Amen.
