Wisdom For The Day Devotional 14 November 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Resting At His Feet Ensures That You Don’t Go Empty

TOPIC: Resting At His Feet Ensures That You Don’t Go Empty (TREM Devotional 14 November 2023)

“And she said, these six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, go not empty unto thy mother in law”. Ruth 3:17(KJV)


I am tired of people who go for church services and all-night prayers, then when the chips are down and the battle rages, they fall like a pack of cards. That will not be your portion. In the book of Ruth chapter 3, Naomi said to Ruth, when you get to the kinsman redeemer, rest at his feet. Don’t do anything; just rest. She rested from night till morning. When the man woke up and saw her, he said, bring your veil. This was a lady who was reaping behind the reapers in the field, just gathering the little leftovers which they usually leave for poor people. But this time around, the owner of the field said, don’t work, I’ll give you. She was given six measures of barley without working. Six measures! When she laboured, she got one. Without labour, she got six. Then he said to her, it is not finished yet. Your destination is not the six measures of barley.

From that time, Boaz took over and began working for Ruth. He did all the work until Ruth was catapulted from the lineage of those who have hitherto been denied into the lineage of Jesus. I declare unto you that a change is coming into your life. You will never remain where they left you. You will spring a surprise.

Jesus is irrevocably and unconditionally committed to you. He will never leave nor forsake you. You are irresistible to Him. He is not putting up with you. It is not like, “say what you want to say and get out of here”. No! He wants to hear your voice. You are so important to Him. He has not called you to abandon you. He doesn’t jump ship. He doesn’t run away when the battle is raging. He will always be there for you until all He has promised you are fulfilled. Just rest at His feet and you will never leave empty-handed.

Ruth 4:1-22

Morning – Lamentations 3-5; Evening – Hebrews 10:19-39
