Special greetings to you. I am blessed to know you and want to bless you. Jesus is our message and theme. His Kingdom is our space where we live and enjoy His choice blessings to us.
In Ruth chapter three, verse one Naomi asked Ruth this important question: “My daughter, shall I not seek security for you that it may be well with you? Naomi’s name means delightful and pleasant. She is a type of the Holy Spirit and takes notice of her pure desire for the wellness of Ruth. When she made the suggestion to Ruth she already had Boaz in her mind. Boaz is a type of our heavenly father. Later in chapter three, you will find Ruth at the feet of Boaz. In chapter four, you will find Ruth as the bride to Boaz. This is a fairy tale story to a certain degree.
Ruth came from Moab, a type of the world as you will notice in chapter one. She was the daughter-in-law of Naomi. When Naomi decided to return to Judea after the death of her husband, Ruth made an oath that she will not leave Naomi and that Naomi’s God will become her God. In Ruth 1:16 – 17, we find these powerful significant words of Ruth as she spoke to Naomi. 16 “Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God be my God. 17 ;Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.”
At the end of the book of Ruth, we will see that David came from the lineage of Boaz as well as Jesus. God’s Grace directed our footsteps from the Moab world to where we find ourselves in the land of Boaz picking up grain that was dropped on purpose for us. FAVOR, FAVOR, FAVOR. We find ourselves married as the bride of Christ to Jesus our bridegroom and now carry eternal seed that will keep us in covenant for eternity.
WELLNESS AND SECURITY
The goodness of Jesus is simply amazing. The bottom line is wellness and security. The pure desire of the Holy Spirit for you is to be taken care of. Isn’t that just awesome? He desires the best for us in spite of our background. He is willing to go into a covenant with us in spite of our history. Yes, He intends to bring forth the fruit of destiny from us that will touch generations to come. He is willing to connect us with royalty although we never came from royalty. He simply loves us. THIS IS OUR GOD AND HIS GRACE. Amazing!
What a beautiful word, the word “thank you.”! Thank you friend for your wonderful friendship and partnership. My vocabulary falls short to even think of how I can thank you. I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving 2011 with friends and family. Jesus is the bread of life and what you will enjoy on your thanksgiving table this year comes from the Lord.
Thank you for what you have placed on the GNN table this year. Your financial-food if I can call it that, has supplied needs thousands of miles away from here. Let us pray this year as we get ready to eat our manna from heaven as supplied by God on our Thanksgiving table, that He will also fill up the tables of the poor. Happy Thanksgiving America and thank you America for embracing the van Zyl’s into this great country.
NUGGETS FOR MEN
“The way each day will look to you all starts with who you’re looking to.”
Psalm 121:1 & 2. I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
“Live truth instead of professing it.”
James 1:22. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
POWERFUL STATEMENT –
“Holding a grudge is letting someone living rent free in your head.”
Let us be Jesus to the world. We are saved by grace and let us walk in that grace as we always remember where He brought us from.
I love you dearly,
