Four Power Points of a Boaz Blessings ~ Part 3

Four Power Points of a Boaz Blessings

The third point we are going to talk about is impartation.

Impartation: to give, convey, or grant from or as if from a store. 2. To communicate the knowledge of

Here in chapter three you have Naomi instructing Ruth on how to reel in Boaz. Now remember in chapter 2 Ruth caught the eye of Boaz when he spotted her reaping in the fields. In verse 5, Boaz wanted to know whose damsel was in his field. You have to remember that the word damsel means a young unmarried woman of noble birth. This right here tells us that Boaz didn’t see Ruth as a poor foreigner from a low-class family. He saw her as a woman of value. Even though she was in her working clothes, hair tied up, and dust all on her face her Boaz saw through all that and saw a queen. So, going in verse 8 still in chapter 2, Boaz tells Ruth not to go nowhere else and glean. He wanted to keep an eye on her.

Let’s stop right here Ruth had a mind made up to serve God and to do whatever her mother-in-law instructed her to do. Having a man was far from her mind and she missed all the signs that Boaz had an eye for her. Not Naomi though, because she knew that this would be their opportunity to redeem the inheritance of her late husband and sons. She explains in verse 1-2 of chapter three that this would give Ruth rest from hard labor because Boaz holds the key to her blessings. What we have to remember is that God does not give us all that we want in a mate but He will give us exactly what we need.

Naomi begins to impart in Ruth the instructions and wisdom on how to get Boaz’s attention. He has already seen how you look when you are working hard, and you found favor in his sight. Now, let him see you looking like the royalty he already knows you are. Then place yourself at his feet and wait until he awakes to find you there. If you think, you had favor before you wait until the morning.

Ruth did exactly what was told and not only did she come out with a fiancé but she came out with a gift for her mother-in-law. Your Boaz doesn’t just want to please you but he wants to bless your family as well.

The problem with this part of receiving a Boaz blessing is that most women don’t receive the impartation. They don’t want to lay at a man’s feet because they have become so independent or already have in mind what they want in a man so their Boaz in their mind is not for them. In today’s time we, of course, don’t actually lay at his feet but if you have a spiritual mother, or father telling you how to humble yourself just a little more, so that Boaz can go ahead and make you his wife, then receive it.

Boaz we are going to find out in our next and final lesson goes above and beyond to make Ruth his wife. It wasn’t just because she dressed up, but he had eyes for her way back in chapter 2.

Our next lesson will be on the manifestation of the blessing.

Rest In God

Jesus

I have had several family and friends ask for prayer for difficult situations, that will bring the strongest person to their knees. l can truly sympathize with many of the request, because I have sat in the seat of many of them. God has given me such an amazing peace when bills are due and there is no money to pay, unexplained sickness occurs, my back is up against the wall, and it just seems like hell itself has entered my life.

God has given me the revelation behind Psalms 91 and it starts with the word abide. A simple word, but so important when learning how to rest in God. Jesus tells us that if we abide in Him that he will also abide in us. How do we abide in God? Simple, have a real relationship with Him. Through daily reading, prayer, meditation, being obedient, and having a listening ear, will keep the peace we all are needing in times like these. The bible tells us when we are weak He is made strong, but he can’t be made strong if we aren’t abiding in Him.

I walked in and found my mother died on her floor, my sister died after being admitted to the hospital with signs of an heart attack, my grandfather died after developing lung cancer with in a year of the diagnosis, and my daughter was diagnosed with cancer at age five. I lost my dream home, I fell in love with a man that never loved me back, and I have had people turn their backs on me for my dedication to God.

I have been through the fire but God promised me that I would never be burned. I have learned how to rest, lean, and totally depend on God. I know what it is to have and to have not, to be abase and to abound, to have wants and to have needs, but through it all I know how to be content and fall in the hands of a loving God.

So I encourage you to do the same during these difficult times and know that God is able and willing to do above and exceedingly what your little mind could ever imagine. I am praying for all who feel as though there is no hope left and that God has sentenced you to misery. Just take the time to read the book of Job and understand because he never gave up, God blessed him double for his trouble, and Job’s trouble was indeed great.

Reference scriptures:

Psalms 91:1- He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

John 15:4- Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.

Isaiah 43:2- When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame scorch you.

Matthew 11:28-30  – “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. “For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”
