Something About Ruth, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

Ruth 1:1-22, “Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her”

Sometime back my pastor talked about making Godly decisions. Decisions that will not only affect you today but for many days, months and even years to come. We have talked about the same with the life of Ruth and Naomi making decisions to change locations when there appeared to be no light at the end of the tunnel. Read the rest of this entry »

Ruth 1:1-22, “Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her”

One woman decided to go back to her people but had to a face head on a problem, she had two friends who had been related to her by marriage at one point. With the death of her sons, there was actually nothing in the family line to tie them together apart from the bond of friendship they developed over the years. Read the rest of this entry »

Ruth 1:1-22, “Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her”

When I talk about the goodness of the Lord and His work, I am reminded of the book of Ruth. If you carefully read this book, you will see how God skillfully patterns two women’s lives by causing them to go through different stages of life with an aim to bring them to a level where they can truly understand who God is. Through one of the women we will talk about, her lineage became the line by which David came and through that line Christ comes to us. When God begins to do something in a life, He will not only look at the present but more so the future. He is making something that will last for a long time. Read the rest of this entry »

Proverbs Thirty One Woman, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

A virtuous woman is a woman of destiny, Proverbs 31:25, “Strength and honor are her clothing and she shall rejoice in time to come”. Everything she is doing is to bringing her strength and honor and it’s not because she is trying to build herself a name but because her character has placed her in a position where people honor and respect her, and therefore she has a destiny that will cause her to rejoice. Mary the mother of Jesus becomes a woman of destiny for she is favored among women to carry a precious seed that will one day save the entire world. Read the rest of this entry »

Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

A virtuous woman is a woman of Obedience, Proverbs 31:11&12, “The heart of her husband safely trust her; so he will have no lack again, she does him good and not evil all the days of her life.” There is a proverb that says obedience is better than sacrifice and we see this in the life of Ruth. She left her home where she worshiped pagan gods and followed Naomi who was her mother in law before she lost her son (husband to Ruth). Read the rest of this entry »

Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

These three part series is an encouragement to godly women and learning experience to godly men about godly women. I have learnt a lot watching my wife, the women in my ministry, my mom, some of the ladies I discipled back in the days. My learning enables me to treat and pray for them effectively. The intercessory prayer ministry my wife and I were involved with, 95% were ladies. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted on Updated on


Ruth 1:14, vs. 14, “Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her”

In the next three devotions, I will share specifically three areas in our journey we may have to deal with. If not all, I will share the journeys of these three women; Orpah, Naomi and Ruth. The crossroad is the redefining place for commitment that leads to destiny. Today we share on Orpah but first beginning with the story that brought these three women together.
