As I was meditating upon the LORD, He began to impress this message upon my heart: that many are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to identifying your Boaz or your Ruth in this season!
When your Boaz shows up ladies, you will know him because when God connects you to a Boaz, he has a plan.
He will be a man of authority with leadership abilities and qualifications. He will be a man who has your best interest at heart and he will not be selfish and or stingy in this season!
Like Boaz, he will have a place for you to live and not looking for you to make the necessary provisions.
Not only that, he will have a keen since of discernment when it comes to meeting your needs both naturally and spiritually as Boaz did Ruth.
When Boaz met Ruth she was trying to survive as a woman the best she could, but he came, bringing something to the table to add dimension to her life, and not only her life, but her family as well.
Come on somebody! Boaz was a man who had an eye for details and he was well equipped to lead a family; a man full of wisdom for leading and giving counsel and advice to others!
When the LORD places you with a Boaz, He will set it up just as He did Ruth.
God is not going to give you somebody who is going to keep you “just surviving”, but he is coming to add on to what you already have.
How did God do it” By her obedience and her faith in God, that’s how!
Ruth obeyed Naomi and Boaz in the instructions that where given her and she reaped the results.
When the time came for them to unite, confirmation came not just from them, but others who were full of wisdom surrounding them.
Not only will God give the women a Boaz, but He has a plan for the men as well!
So many of God’s people are in need of a spouse in this season, but the question is, are you prepared to receive what God is about to provide?
So many men want wives and families, but have no plans or long term goals for your life, or the spouse you are looking for!
Instead of you, the man, looking to provide for your wife, you are looking for what she can provide for you!
Wrong! Boaz had a plan for both himself and Ruth and not the other way around, and when he saw the open door to make her his wife, he went for it!
Some men want a wife, but you have failed to ask God for help!
You have no leadership qualities or the abilities to lead anyone, let on yourselves!
How can you expect God to give you a good wife when you cannot even discern the good qualities in the women He has sent, without finding fault in them?
Boaz was not insecure or looking for a weak mate, but he was looking first at Ruth’s beauty. But he didn’t just stop there, he noticed her faithfulness and her dedication to family and her unselfishness to the family she already had!
This gave him the idea, “I don’t want her grazing or gleaning in any other field but mine!”
Neither did he want anyone else touching her. He quickly staked his claim on Ruth; as she did him, as she waited patiently and followed the counsel of a wise woman; Naomi.
She lay humbly at the man’s feet, wanting to submit herself and to please him the way a woman should a man. It was then that he knew he had the right woman!
But as she lay at his feet, she used wisdom when and after leaving the threshing floor, so no one would speak ill of her or Boaz.
There was no hanky-panky going on before marriage. He saw she wasn’t easy and anxious for a man, but acted like a lady at all times.
He saw that she was a hard working woman who wasn’t a gold digger looking to get all she could from his inheritance. That made him love her all the more!
As I write this God, is asking what has happened to the respect of both our ladies and men in Christ when they fail to carry themselves as men and women of God, waiting upon God to connect them to either their Boaz or Ruth rather than doing it themselves?
The scriptures say,
“Let not then your good be evil spoken of For the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:16-17).
“For, I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn,” (1 Corinthians 7:8-9)
God has an inheritance waiting upon His men and His women of God, but it cannot come when we don’t allow God to do the connecting, instead of the flesh!
Those who are spiritual (not for the immature) and walking with God (mature) is more prepared for marriage than anyone else.
God prepares us for marriage by processing our spiritual man first; as well as naturally.
Marriage demands commitment, passion, humility, love, and respect. These traits are most evident in a person who has an intimate relationship with God as Ruth and Naomi did.
As you prepare yourself for marriage, focus on allowing God to shape you and mold you into the man or woman He wants you to be (Romans 12:1-2).
If you submit yourself to Him, He will enable you to be ready for marriage when that wonderful day arrives and it is coming!
