3 Things To Consider if You’re Waiting on Boaz

waiting for your boaz

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.

Thank you for this message. sometimes the reason we dont want to turn to God is because we actually fear that perhaps maybe Boaz isnt His best for me. i have been there and its like you said after all the many efforts to get you a Boaz, you realise its time to just trust God and do some interesting thing in your life. pick up a challenge you have been dying to get through maybe a swimming lesson, just something that brings you happiness and before you know it, God will answer you. Trust the Lord.
