The book of Ruth is a story that reminds us not only that God works visibly through prophets and miracles, but that he is invisibly and mysteriously working all of the time, even within tragedy. The story is not big and the characters are very ordinary, yet through their story we are reminded that, when all things appear hopeless, God is faithful. For those who are wondering where God is in the midst of heartbreak, or who doubt whether God is in control, or who just want to see a faithful God … the book of Ruth is for you.
