“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.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
