Ruth Truth 5:
I seriously cannot contain my excitement when I read the book of Ruth. It seems I can't read more than a few verses before it seems to jump at me and we're only scratching the surface!
"...she happened to come to the portion of the field belonging to Boaz, .... Now behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem and said to the reapers, “May the Lord be with you.” And they said to him, “May the Lord bless you.” Ruth 2:3-4
Of ALL the fields, the field of Boaz. Of ALL the times, at this TIME, when Boaz had just come from Bethlehem. The right PLACE, at the right TIME.
It is easy to say this was just a coincidence. Perhaps. Or you can choose to believe God is in control, and often what appears coincidental, might have more to it.
How does this relate to our career, business or investing? Cease striving.
We are often placed where we are for a reason. We might not understand, it might be back breaking work.
Take the first steps, and then just allow the favour of God to flow in your life. It might not happen during the TIMING you want, but it will happen at the right time.
