I am now wrapping up week four of the Bible study “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” by Nikki Koziarz. This is a six week Bible study on the book of Ruth. The author Nikki wrote the study based on five habits of perseverance from the life of Ruth.
In day five, week four, Nikki uses James 4:14 as the “quit Quitting verse,” or verse of the day.
The author also talks about how most of us believe God wants to use us to do great things, but it’s often hard for us to move forward and accept new responsibilities. Nikki says she doesn’t want her life to be filled with responses like, “someday, one day.” She is correct when she says time passes quickly and we need to maximize every opportunity we are given.
Nikki then challenges us to think about what we need to do to reach our goals and visions, and what visions we may need to put on hold for now.
In this lesson we are reminded that being open to God’s movement is filled with hard work- work that often feels fruitless and like we’re not accomplishing anything. But, on his timing, and after we’ve stuck to the task at hand, God always gives us what we need.
Just wait til week five. God does a huge work in the lives of Naomi and Ruth.
Have a wonderful week.
