To be determined is to stay long on a particular course of action without yielding to the pressure of discouragement or distraction. One day, after years of suffering and struggling, Naomi decided to return to the land of Judah when she heard that the Lord had visited his people, so Orpah and Ruth decided to follow her;
“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.” Ruth.1:6-7
Following her was not just a course of action for them but also a great decision which really touched Naomi’s heart greatly. Therefore, she stopped and blessed them for their decision and discharged them.

“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.” Ruth.1:8,9
This was a wonderful blessing, coming from the heart of Naomi as a result of their determination. Determination has power to draw blessings to you. However, IT IS YOUR LEVEL OF DETERMINATION THAT DETERMINES THE QUALITY OF BLESSINGS YOU WILL RECEIVE. When they heard the prayers, the scripture says that they lifted up their voice and wept and “… said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people. .” (vs.10)

So, Naomi perceived that the young women were fascinated by the blessings, she repositioned herself and spoke further:

“11 … 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; {should have…: or were with an husband} 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. {tarry: Heb. hope} {it grieveth…: Heb. I have much bitterness} 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.” Ruth.1:11 – 14

To be determined is to overlook every signs or expressions of impossibility, distractions and discouragement. Orpah actually tried but when she heard the situational report and analysis from Naomi, she concluded that her dream of following Naomi cannot become a reality, therefore she turned back. To make it to your desired destination in life, you must disconnect yourself from the analyzers of negative situations and events. In facts, close the door of your heart against them. …to be continued in the next edition.
