Ruth 2 – Vulnerability and Humility
Ruth shows us what it takes to do the will of God: obedience, commitment, humility, and self-sacrifice. She took a risk and showed courage and initiative when it would have been easier for her to just stay put. Is the Lord asking you to do something that scares you and that requires vulnerability and humility? Are you willing to humble yourself and be authentic? Ruth’s actions put her in the direct sightline of someone God would use to bless her and Naomi. You do your part and God will do His part.
Lord, people don’t know how hard it is for me to do this thing you have asked me to do. You know my heart. Give me courage to get up and get out there and get the job done, no matter what others think of me. I will trust you to orchestrate divine appointments. You are my provider. I will praise you in advance for your provisions and trust you to bring them to me in any way you choose.
