Her mother-in-law asked her, “Where did you glean today? Where did you work? Blessed be the man who took notice of you!” Then Ruth told her mother-in-law about the one at whose place she had been working. “The name of the man I worked with today is Boaz,” she said. “The Lord bless him!” Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. “He has not stopped showing his kindness to the living and the dead.” She added, “That man is our close relative; he is one of our guardian-redeemers.” Then Ruth the Moabite said, “He even said to me, ‘Stay with my workers until they finish harvesting all my grain.’ ” Ruth 2:19‭-‬21 NIV

God does not only order the steps of the righteous, He guides their stops as well. You cannot faithfully chose to follow Jesus, walk in His steps and ended up being stranded or lost in life.

He is the faithful and loving Shepherd who makes His own to lie down in green pastures. He also leads and guides those who sincerely and honestly follow Him besides the still waters and along the path of righteousness where He will suffer no evil to befall or allow anyone to molest them.

As you faithfully keep in step with Jesus in your daily pilgrimage in this world where we roam, He will surely lead and guide you to the place He has prepared ahead for you. There is nothing coincidental for those who follow the leading of the Lord. Events that seem coincidental to us are actually evidence of God’s plan in action.

When we obediently follow the Lord, He causes circumstances around us to miraculously unite to fulfil His purposes and in His timing. May the Lord guide and direct your movement this weekend and beyond along the paths He had pre-arranged to take you to His plans and provisions for your life in Jesus’ name. Do have a lovely weekend.

Your brother,
