God brought great blessings from Naomi’s tragedy. Throughout her tough times, Naomi continued to trust God. And God showed Himself trustworthy by blessing her greatly in His own time. Even in our sorrow and calamity, God can bring great blessing.
Questions for further thought:
1. When something bad happens have you ever uttered the question “How can God allow this to happen to me?
2. Think about the opposite when something wonderful happens. Do you ever question God about that? Why or why not?
Challenge: Be like Naomi and don’t turn your back on God when tragedy strikes. Instead of asking “How can God allow this to happen to me?” trust Him. He will be with you in the hard times.
