2 And Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain behind anyone in whose eyes I find favor.”
Naomi said to her, “Go ahead, my daughter.” 3 So she went out, entered a field and began to glean behind the harvesters. As it turned out, she was working in a field belonging to Boaz, who was from the clan of Elimelek.
Ruth had made her home in a foreign land. She took the initiative and went to work. When Ruth went out into the fields, God provided for her. Are you waiting for God to provide? Consider that he may be waiting for you to take the first steps to see how important your need is. When you start making steps, look for the open doors that God may provide as you take the initiative.
