he overcomes obstacles

Ruth 4:1-6 (JDV)

Ruth 4:1 Boaz went up to the gate of the town and sat down there. Soon the family deliverer Boaz had spoken about came by. Boaz said, “Come over here and sit down.” So he went over and sat down.
Ruth 4:2 Then Boaz took ten men of the town’s elders and said, “Sit here.” And they sat down.
Ruth 4:3 He said to the deliverer, “Naomi, who has returned from the territory of Moab, is selling the portion of the field that belonged to our brother Elimelech.
Ruth 4:4 I thought I should inform you: Buy it back in the presence of those seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you want to deliver it, do it. But if you do not want to deliver it, tell me so that I will know, because there isn’t anyone other than you to deliver it, and I am next after you.” “I want to deliver it,” he answered.
Ruth 4:5 Then Boaz said, “On the day you buy the field from Naomi, you will acquire Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the deceased man, to perpetuate the man’s name on his property.”
Ruth 4:6 The deliverer replied, “I can’t deliver it myself, or I will ruin my own inheritance. Take my right of deliverance, because I can’t deliver it.”

he overcomes obstacles

I imagine a lump in Boaz’s throat developed when he heard his relative say “I want to deliver it.” But he had the presence of mind to tell his relative that he would acquire Ruth in the deal.

We don’t know the exact reasons that this relative rejected the investment. We do know that God had a reason. Boaz was glad to learn that Ruth was going to be his. The Lord made a way.

Thank you Lord, for overcoming obstacles in order to bless us.
