On Purpose

Read Ruth 1:1 through 4:22

“And pull out some heads of barley from the bundles and drop them on purpose for her. Let her pick them up, and don’t give her a hard time!” (Ruth 2:16). 


 Those who say that everything happens by accident do not know how God works. If His children trust in Him with all their hearts and don’t try to figure out every detail for themselves, they can count on Him to direct their paths (Proverbs 3:5–6). God is their Provider and the Source of all good things.


 God led Ruth to this particular field for a reason. He inspired Boaz to direct his workers to purposely leave enough provisions for Ruth and Naomi. Since Boaz was their kinsman-redeemer, God brought a beautiful love story to completion. Ruth became the great-grandmother of King David and an ancestor of Jesus. God’s plans will never fail. 


 Allow God to lead you and work in your life. He has a plan for you, and that plan is always good. You just need to trust Him to guide and help you. 


Thought for Today: God is a loving Father and will direct you in the right paths. Listen to Him.
