He is more than enough! – Ruth 2: 14 – 1

He is more than enough! – Ruth 2: 14 – 18
He is very safe
“Even if she gathers among the sheaves, don’t embarrass her. Rather, pull out some stalks for her from the bundles and leave them for her to pick up, and don’t rebuke her.” 2:15-16
Boaz protected Ruth, he called that there be no embarrassment or rebuking of her and he made sure that her work was productive. The fields were a dangerous place to work, particularly if you were a foreigner as Ruth was. Naomi is relieved later when she hears Ruth has been working in Boaz’s field, for she knows that in someone else’s ‘you might be harmed’v22.
Ruth worked in Boaz’s field and she did not know but this was the safest place to be.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. I will fear no evil for you are with me. I will fear no evil for you are with me. I will fear no evil for you are with me.
Why was Jesus asleep in the boat during a storm? It was because he felt protected and provided for by His Father. He was safe. It is only possible to make the discovery of being safe when in a place of turmoil and danger.
So whether you are in a home-made wooden boat as the earth is being flooded, or walking through the middle of the Red Sea, or firing a stone at Goliath, or having fellowship with a den of lions or spending a whole day in the fields working on your own. It is only then that you realise that the most potentially dangerous places can be the safest places of all. Why? I will fear no evil, for you are with me and He is more than enough.
