Ruth just wanted her and her mother-in-law’s life to be sustained. She went to Boaz’s field with that intention.
She left that evening with more barley than she had planned on, a place to refresh herself when she became weary and food and water to give her strength.
She went into the fields expecting to just get by and left with blessings that exceeded her imagination.
Isn’t that just like our lives with Jesus?
We come to Him just wanting a Savior. But in addition to that he feeds us, supplies our every need and gives us rest; He becomes our Provider.
Humble yourselves before The Lord. He has great plans to bless you beyond what you can even fathom.
