Do You Believe Like That?
And when she rose up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, "Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her. Also let grain from the bundles fall purposely for her; leave it that she may glean, and do not rebuke her." Ruth 2:15–16
God allowed Ruth, a Moabite woman, to find favor in the sight of the wealthy field owner. She gleaned in his field and picked up what his men missed. God didn’t show her favor because she was under covenant or because she stayed with Naomi. God showed her favor because she believed in Him.
She found herself in the lineage of Jesus. She married a wealthy man. She gave birth to David’s grandfather. All because she believed in the God that Naomi told her about.
Do you believe God as much as Ruth? Would you leave everything behind if He wanted you to? 🙂
