Ask the LORD God For What You Need


Ruth 3:8-11

The Story
When Boaz awoke, Ruth popped the question!

Ruth's request to be taken under his wings was a request for marriage. This was a common practice in those days.

Ruth just came to Boaz, humbled herself to him and asked for what she needed and wanted!

Lessons
So it is with Gods children, whether it be for salvation, or for a closer walk. We must get at the feet of the LORD Jesus Christ and ask.

The reason we do not have the things we want is often because we never take the time to ask for them (James 4:2).

Remember Ruth, she found her place at the feet of Boaz, and she asked for what she needed.

  1. One of the biggest lessons I have learned. If you don't ask your earthy father for something, you are not going to get it. Why should your Heavenly Father be any different! Even though He already knows what you are going to ask Him, He wants you to take the time to talk to Him and ask Him. :]

  2. It is important to ask God for all things, and at the same time, to be mindful that whatsoever we ask, that it be in accordance with God's will for our lives.
