IS THIS NAOMI? The WASH POT had changed Pleasant to Bitter
Romans 12:2 Conformed – “schematizo” shaped or formed into a mold or pattern

We must Learn to Live by Faith.. take a RISK!
God’s Word had made provision for the Poor!

2 Cor 8:7-15 God never judges prosperity; only GREED!
Isaiah 58 God says TRUE Worship is to feed, clothe and house the poor!
Ruth and Naomi were willing to step out in faith; because God is Faithful!
2 Timothy 2:13
GOD IS FAITHFUL! GOD IS TRUSTWORTHY! GOD IS ABLE!!
We Must Learn to Lean on Grace
Ruth 2:3-4 Do you think it was a coincidence she ended up in Boaz’s field??
Blessed = 3 nuances: Prosperity-Fertility-Victory
Blessing brings the power for life, the enhancement of life and the increase of life!
Boaz is the tool for God’s Grace and blessing
God loves those who present themselves available!!!
Grace is Unmerited favor!
Ruth 2:8-9 Boaz takes the initiative!
God’s grace is His plan not ours!
Ruth 2:13 She was grateful for kindness!!
We must be a people of Grace!
We must be a people who live by Faith!
