“Please let me go to the field and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favor.” Ruth 2: 2.
While going through the second chapter of Ruth we find out that Ruth was going to glean the field of Boaz for the first time. She came to know about Boaz from Naomi. In her own words she expects to find favor from Boaz whom she has never met in her life.
The return of Ruth and Naomi from
In Esther 2 we read about Esther who found favor with Hegai, the King’s custodian (Esther 2:9). Esther was an ordinary girl but obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her Esther 2:15. In Esther 2:17 we read, “The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”
Now how did this happen? Have you ever wondered about it? Did queen Vashti do anything wrong? The only thing she did was that she refused to appear before the king and his friends who were drunk. You might be thinking, “Is it fair?” Of course not, there was nothing wrong about the queen’s decision. But it was Just in the eyes of the Lord to favor Esther.
My dear readers, you and I are in the same position of Esther. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” Proverbs 3:34. “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” 2 Peter 5:6-7.
Out of my own experience, I have seen supernatural promotions recently. Now, this had begun to happen in places where I had worked before. People working in high positions disappear in no time. If you are highly favored He will promote you to positions for which you might not be eligible.
Keep praying. Let His favor be upon you.
