The Pathway to Blessing

“I will do everything you say.” Ruth 3:5

Ruth’s obedience opened the pathway to blessing. In Israel, those who were in difficulty like Naomi, could count on their kinsman redeemer to rescue them and bring them out of their dire straits. Ruth did not question the protocol that was to be followed in the presence of Boaz. She loved and trusted Naomi’s word.  She did everything exactly as Naomi instructed.  She was willing to lay quietly at the feet of Boaz, the man who had the resources to lift her from poverty and struggle to place her in the glorious lineage of the Messiah. 

As we yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit, God orders our steps in the paths of His purpose: “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives” (Ps. 37:23).  Our purpose is part of His grand design for the universe.  Long before Mary was even a seed in her mother’s womb, Ruth became one of the vessels for the deliverance of the world from sin.  She was completely unaware of her place in the Messiah’s birth line, yet she moved with God. What a sweet place to be, at the feet of our Creator, the One Whose rich mercy and grace lift us from spiritual poverty to the wealth of life eternal.  He gave His Son for us and what a purpose He has for each one of His children.

As I write these things, I am in a place of hardship.  Though it is difficult to see God’s hand working with my natural eyes, I see Him clearly by faith.  He instructs me what step to take and I trust Him to bring me safely to the fulfillment of my purpose.  I lay humbly at His feet and wait for His guidance through His Word, prayer, and the Holy Spirit. I challenge you to stay the course, whatever your path is today. 

“So, we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
