God is doing a quick work right now that will result in an increased flow of the Spirit in your life!
The person God is using as an example of what He is doing in this season is Ruth. The family that Ruth married into was an Israelite family who had to leave everything behind because of famine and move to Moab. Ruth married one of the two sons in the family. During the time the family was in Moab, Ruth’s father in law died and both her husband and brother in law died. Once Ruth’s sister in law decided to leave Ruth and her mother in law, Naomi are alone.
Prospects for their present and future were extremely bleak. Left without land and income, the two women were in deep trouble.
But, a series of events occurred that began a supernatural move of God in their lives. The series of events included critical decisions that had to be made and the supernatural leadership of God.
One of the destiny changing events occurred when Naomi decided to return back home. Returning to the land of God’s blessing started everything in motion. If you are away from the place of God’s blessing, then your journey begins with getting there.
Ruth was given the option to return to her family of origin. Her sister in law had chosen this option. But, Ruth decided to stay in what she believed God had called her to and where God had called her to be and didn’t make decisions based upon what she saw in the “natural”. She linked her future to God’s plan rather than her self interests. This was a destiny shaping decision.
As the women returned to Israel, something was going on that would play a huge part in their story that they had nothing to do with: it was all orchestrated by God. They arrived in Israel at harvest time: the right season for their breakthrough!
Can you say, “The right season!”
Now, I want to say something about “divine connections”.
Ruth can’t just sit on her hands. Something needs to be done so that she and her mother in law, Naomi can eat. So, Ruth goes to find a field where she can begin to pick up the grain that falls away after the gleaning process is done by the reapers. In other words, she is after the “leftovers”.
But, another event happens that is an act of God. Ruth “happens” to come to the field that belongs to a man named Boaz, who is of the same family as Elimelech, Ruth’s father in law.
Ruth didn’t end up in just any field: she ended up in the field that belonged to someone who would play a huge role in her future destiny!
Can you say, “The right place!”
Some of you feel as if you are destined for “leftovers”. If you are faithful to your calling – if you decide to tie your fortunes to God’s plan for your life – if you reject decisions based solely upon what will be in your best interests rather than the will of God – if you know what season your are in and are willing to do the activities proper for that season – God will divinely direct you and shape your destiny!
Ruth is at the right place at the right time. Are you at the right place at the right time?
Ruth understands the season. It is not time to plant. It is not time to plow the ground. It is harvest time. When you know the season you are in, you can choose the right equipment and actions for that season. Ruth took with her the right equipment needed to harvest and went to work in the field.
Can you say, “The right equipment!”
This is the right season for you according to what I’m hearing from the Lord. Are you at the place where God can bless you? Get there and take with you the right equipment to get busy about the Father’s business! If you take these simple steps, God will divinely direct your paths and soon, you will find out that you are not having to settle for “leftovers” nor are you a tragic statistic of life’s pain but you are an example of God’s goodness and redemptive power on display for all to see!
Divine appointments are scheduled for those who yoke their future to the will of God!
