How good are you,when it comes to following directions?Most people are lost, because they don’t follow instructions,nor directions. Imagine God laid out His instructions and directions in the Bible, (which means Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth),yet we refuse to obey and follow them. We are quicker to follow the instructions on a GPS device or our phones,than to follow the advice and suggestions of the creator of the universe. Why is this so? Especially in the 21st century,it started when we refuse to obey our parents,another devise of the enemy use to steal,kill,and destroy our lives. When people refuse to listen to their parents or someone older and wiser,what message are you sending to God,who tells you to obey your parents in the Lord,parents who follow the commands of God. It’s simple ,if you refuse to listen to people,you can see,it means,you will not listen to God,who you can’t see. God tells us to obey,is better than sacrifice, He tells us to love and trust Him with all our hearts,He tells us not to put other gods before Him,yet we do. Most people fail to realize that the gods of the 21st century are your house,cars,clothes,your significant other,your job,your children, etc. Are you following God’s instructions? Ruth and Naomi are two perfect examples of two women who clung together, because,they shared the same pain and loss. Yet, the older and wiser Naomi was never bitter or angry at God and she taught her daughter-in-law the same.
This story would never have a happy ending,if Ruth did not follow instructions from a woman of God who was older and wiser. If most women today would not throw themselves at men they would be happily married. But because they don’t have godly mothers or people who are godly, older and wiser to direct them, they follow their own instinct and intuition, but if we all follow God’s instructions in Proverbs 3:5-6, which tells us to trust the Lord with everything and never rely on our limited understanding, then He will direct our path,and we all would be on the right path instead of leaning on our own understanding,and trying to figure things out.
It’s amazing that like Boaz in Ruth 3:8, when you are not looking or seeking something, God knows what you need,He is the supplier of all needs,like Adam,God knows it’s not good for a man to be alone in life,so He created a help mate for him.Boaz had the money, prestige and all the trimmings life could offer, where he could have had any woman he wanted or money could buy. But he was looking for an honorable and virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31; this he recognized in Ruth. It was not about sex and this was not Boaz’s only intention. He wanted a help mate that would be compatible spiritually, physically and otherwise.
The thing about a man of God whose steps are ordered by God, is that his intentions are honorable and he intends to honor God by doing things the right and legal way. Boaz didn’t see Ruth as a sex object but as a virtuous woman who loved God and would stick to you like glue through thick and thin, good and bad, sickness and health. Ruth proved to be that woman by sticking with Naomi, giving up her life to be a companion to her mother-in-law. Ruth didn’t have to say anything; her actions spoke for her.
Because of Ruth’s determination, obedience and love and compassion for a God she grew to know through Naomi and love for others, God gave her a new life with a new husband, children, riches and a whole lot more. Now is there anything that God would not give or do for you? If you would just follow His instructions in the Bible. Ruth’s choice to follow her mother-in-law’s Godly ways and instructions changed her life for good.
