The Boaz Breakthrough pt 1
The Boaz Breakthrough – Part 1
Read Ruth 1:1-5
In the book of Ruth, Ruth and Naomi were desperate for a breakthrough. Naomi the mother in law to Ruth had been living in the foreign land Moab. Naomi had lost her husband and her sons and was left with little hope to provide for herself and her daughters in law. She became desperate for a breakthrough.
First Step for a Breakthrough
The first step of any breakthrough is there must be desperation. You must come to a place where your ideas and abilities come to an end and God’s power must take over. A true breakthrough can only happen as you come to that place where you must step out and have faith in God’s abilities and not your own. Only when you come to this level of desperation will you submit yourself to obedience to God’s direction and position yourself to receive the breakthrough.
Level of Desperation
A young man asked an older man, who was a guru, how to be successful. The guru told the young man to meet him at the beach at 5am the next morning. The young man showed up right on time and the guru instructed him to step into the water. When he stepped in the water came to his knees. He pulled him a little further out and the water stopped at his waist. Then he pulled him out a little further and then it stopped at his chest. The guru then asked the young man did he really want to be successful. He shouted yes and the guru grabbed his head and held it under water. The young man kicked and fought to come back up and get some air. The guru held him until he was just about to pass out and then pulled him up. He then told the young man that until you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will never see real success.
How desperate are you for a breakthrough? Have you come to that place where you’re willing to change yourself and submit your life to the direction God has for your life?
