MEMORY VERSE: “And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:” Ruth 1:16

BIBLE TEXT: Ruth 1:6-20

[6]Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.

[7]Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.

[8]And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother’s house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.

[9]The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.

[10]And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.

[11]And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?

[12]Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;

[13]Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.

[14]And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.

[15]And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.

[16]And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

[17]Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

[18]When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.

[19]So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?

[20]And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Divine choices can be defined as Godly choices. Choices taken by the leading of God’s spirit. Our Bible text talks of a widowed lady who got to know the God of her late husband and family and chose to follow her mother in the law and at the end it led to a victorious end.

Our choices should anchor on the Lord for direction. Today we should be looking at two outlines to help us in choices to be taken.
It should be noted that God has given each and every one of us the right to choose. It is important to know also that the choices we make determine our future. We all have to make choices at different stages of our life. We are always presented with different choices and to make these decisions without error, we need proper guidance which only God can provide. Proverbs 3:5-6

LESSON OUTLINE ONE
WHY DO WE NEED DIVINE GUIDANCE?
This is because as human being we are limited in knowledge. Deut. 29:29
A. We need it so as to fulfill our destiny. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11

B. We need it so that we can overturn the plans of the enemy. Eph. 6:11-19

C. We need it so that our paths and plans may be in line with the will of God. Daniel 11:32

LESSON OUTLINE TWO
DIVINE GUIDANCE
This is a life that is led by God, a life led by the knowledge of the word of God which survives and attain greater success. Psalms 32:8, Psalms 119:105, Galatians 5:25.

ACTIVITY: Discuss David’s travails before he reclaimed in 1 Samuel 30.

SUMMARY: Your attainment in life is based on the choice that you make. Bad choice ruins one’s destiny. Remember Achan with the garment and gold from Jericho.

CONCLUSION: Like Ruth, we need to stand with that which the Holy Spirit inspires us to do so that God’s plan for our lives can be fulfilled to its fullness. We should always seek God for all of our plans and work with Him.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Father, help me to always include You in all my decisions.

2. Father, give me the grace to do Your will so that I may fulfill my destiny.

3. Father, overturn the plan of the enemy in my life.

4. I pray for RCCG that we will connect with God’s plans for the church.

5. Father fulfill the prophecy over Your son, Pastor E. A. Adeboye.
