Restoration Requested

June 23, 2024 Ruth Pastor Dan Wagner 0


  • A good plan arises from an understanding of what the LORD desires. We must take action on the plan by faith, AND THEN we must trust the LORD to work. “Success” is not our responsibility.
  • We need to be ready to say, “I’ll do what I can,” or “I can’t promise the result, but I’ll do my best,” or something like them because we do not control the outcome—some aspects are outside of our sphere of authority.
  • Conclusion: Ruth and her “Restoration Requested” actually is “an easy ask” even if it takes her out of her comfort zone. “Restoration Requested” is far more difficult to accomplish since it not personal—it is legal.

Bible Text

(6) So she went down to the threshing floor and did according to all that her mother-in-law had commanded her. (7) When Boaz had eaten and drunk and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of grain; and she came secretly, and uncovered his feet and lay down. (8) It happened in the middle of the night that the man was startled and bent forward; and behold, a woman was lying at his feet. (9) He said, “Who are you?” And she answered, “I am Ruth your maid. So spread your covering over your maid, for you are a close relative.” (10) Then he said, “May you be blessed of the LORD, my daughter. You have shown your last kindness to be better than the first by not going after young men, whether poor or rich. (11) Now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you whatever you ask, for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of excellence. (12) Now it is true I am a close relative; however, there is a relative closer than I. (13) Remain this night, and when morning comes, if he will redeem you, good; let him redeem you. But if he does not wish to redeem you, then I will redeem you, as the LORD lives. Lie down until morning.”

-Ruth 3:6-13 (NASB)
