“Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?”
She had found grace in the eyes of Boaz.
She had been faithful to follow her mother-in-law and the sacrifices she made in order to come to Bethlehem with her, but most of all, he saw Who she trusted in.
“The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.”
She had chosen Naomi’s God as hers.
“And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:”
She humbled herself and knelt in awe of the grace she had found in the field of Boaz. God had ordered her steps to the place He had prepared to fulfill her need.
She was given abundant grace in that she also sat at the table beside the reapers. She ate until she was sufficed.
Ruth also serves as an example of what we too can find if we will fall on our face before the Lord.
His grace is sufficient for our every need, we must need only fall at His feet to find it.
2 Corinthians 12:9
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
Jeremiah 31-32 | Philippians 1 | Psalm 37
