Ruth 3 part 1–A Hot time on the Threshing Floor Tonight!

We must be ready to take steps to execute God’s Plan. In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us that as you are going, make disciples…So often, we are afraid to take steps for fear we are going to miss God’s plan. Conversely, other times we simply strike out on our own without thought or prayer assuming we know better than God what is best for us, In Ruth, we see the place where God lies in the continuum. Ruth listened to her Godly mother-in-law. Naomi trusted God and followed his lead. She instructed Ruth to look and be at her best, but to do what she is told, not make things happen. That is what Satan would have us do–simply help God out. There is a balance.

In our lives, what we do, where we go all are significant to God. He wants us to be sensitive to his leadership. He does not want us to live paralyzed and afraid to face life. We need to walk humbly–but boldly each day seeking him in prayer and listening to Godly men and women he has placed in our lives. We then study his word and hide it in our heart–Finally we go and as we go we seek, listen and ask for his leadership in our lives. As we do, we see amazing answers and know his presence is with us guiding us to a full and meaningful life. We must not be afraid–we must simply trust and obey.

God Bless You and those amazing folks that died so we can remain free.

 

One day Ruth’s mother-in-law Naomi said to her, “My daughter, I must find a home[a] for you, where you will be well provided for. 2 Now Boaz, with whose women you have worked, is a relative of ours. Tonight he will be winnowing barley on the threshing floor. 3 Wash, put on perfume, and get dressed in your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking. 4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.”

5 “I will do whatever you say,” Ruth answered. 6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do.

7 When Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went over to lie down at the far end of the grain pile. Ruth approached quietly, uncovered his feet and lay down. 8 In the middle of the night something startled the man; he turned—and there was a woman lying at his feet!

9 “Who are you?” he asked.

“I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a guardian-redeemer[b] of our family.”
