1. What if a Boaz isn’t God’s best for you:
As I matured in my relationship with God by reading the Word for myself, I asked God one day “What if I don’t want a Boaz?”
I mean, all single Christian women aren’t Ruth or in a situation like the one Ruth was in when she met Boaz. Some of us are more like Lydia. Hannah. Or my personal favorite Deborah.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I know any single, Christian woman who really desires marriage – especially if it’s for the right reasons – would love a man like Boaz. He was kind, a good boss, considerate, and very much the gentlemen.
And you know He knew the Lord because his mother – Rahab – probably wouldn’t let him forget what God had done for her. And did I mention he was rich?!
But what if God’s best for you is a man like Daniel or Lappidoth?
What if God has a Joshua or Caleb in mind for you?
And if you met a man who wife’d you after rapping to you like loverboy did Shulamite in the Song of Songs, are you really going to tell God “But I wanted a Boaz”? I don’t think so.
