Dear Friends,

 

We cannot believe we are in 2018. The time flies!

 

We trust this year will be very special for all of us. It is 5778 in Hebrew calendar, the year of New Beginnings in your life, in your family, at your work, in your ministry.

 

If you are in the darkest hour, do not be discouraged.  Probably all of you read or heard a story about Naomi. She was in a foreign country Moab, lost her husband, her sons. She had nothing to offer to her daughters-in-law. In Ruth chapter 1:13 she said not to come with her to Judea, because their life may be as miserable and bitter as hers.

 

When she and one of her daughters-in-law Ruth had come to Bethlehem, all the city was excited, saying, “Is this Naomi?” Her reply was not to call her Naomi, or “pleasant” in Hebrew, but to call her Mara, meaning “bitter”. Can you imagine how she felt about herself, her life, her future? But once she got back to the right place, the Law of Redemption began to go into operation. Her daughter-in-law Ruth got married to Boaz, Naomi’s inheritance was redeemed, the grandchild Obed was born, who was the grandfather of David.

 

In Ruth 4:15,16 (NKJV) we read a New Beginning Story in Naomi’s life: “Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed be the Lord, who has not left you this day without a close relative; and may His name be famous in Israel! May he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.” Then Naomi took the child and laid him on her bosom, and became a nurse to him.”

Naomi had had a rough life, but now she was restored through the new life she held in her hands.

 

The story doesn’t end with Naomi holding this new-born baby. Years later a baby would be born in Bethlehem, who purchased our redemption, not with money, but with His life. Jesus died on the Cross to make us free. He paid the debt that we could not pay for ourselves, and He died so that we might live. “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:10 (NKJV)

 

God is willing to redeem all who desire His redemption. He is willing to redeem your life and bring you a new hope. As He made a way for Naomi, Jesus will make a way for you too.
