Bitter Providence and a Barley Harvest (Ruth 1:6-22)

When we face the inevitable suffering that the righteous will face (Ps. 34:19), when sorrows like sea billows roll, when it seems like all we know is the frowning and bitter providence of God, how should we respond?  In this sermon, pastor Mitch looks at the responses of Naomi and Ruth to the devastating crisis they faced, and reminds us that God is always working all things for the joy of his people even in their deepest and darkest sufferings. When we remember not only the sovereignty of God but his goodness, mercy, and lovingkindness, we can respond to any crisis with firmness and faithfulness, rather than bitterness and blindness
