“And she said, these six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, go not empty unto thy mother in law”.Ruth 3:17(KJV)
I am tired of people who say they are Christians, blood-bought, Spirit-filled believers, but when the chips are down and the battle rages, they fall like a pack of cards. That will not be your portion. In Ruth 3, Naomi said to Ruth, when you get to the kinsman redeemer, rest at his feet. Don’t do anything, just rest! She rested from night till morning. When the man woke up and saw her, he said, bring your veil. This was a woman who was reaping behind the reapers in the field, just gathering the little leftovers that were usually left for the poor. But this time around, the owner of the field said, don’t work, I will give you. She was given six measures of barley without working. Six! When she laboured, she got one. Without labour, she got six. Then he said to her, it’s not finished yet. Your destination is not the six; you are going to end up owning the whole thing.
You know the story. From that time, Boaz took over, working for Ruth. He did all the work until Ruth was catapulted from the lineage of those who had hitherto been denied, into the lineage of Jesus. I declare to you that a change is coming into your life. You will never remain where they left you. You will spring a surprise. Even if you failed in time past, I see you bouncing back.
Child of God, Jesus is irrevocably and unconditionally committed to you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. You are irresistible to Him. He is not putting up with you. He is not tolerating you as some would. No! He wants to hear your voice. You are so important to Him. He has not called you to abandon you. He doesn’t jump ship. He doesn’t run away when the battle is raging. He will always be there for you until all He has promised you, has been fulfilled.
