LOVE and Marriage for the “Ladies in Waiting”
by JP Logan JP-LOGAN.com & Associates.
If you are expecting and desire a good husband or a dream fulfilling Boaz, be sure to make the necessary preparations internally. The Lord has to prepare and manifest him for you, and you have to ask The Lord to prepare you for him.
Both parties MUST ask themselves:
1- Are you in proper alignment intrinsically?
2- Have you addressed all unresolved conflict from past relationships?
3- Has your mind transitioned from wanting to be single and independent to being unified and tempered into one?
4- Are you truly ready to submit to one another according to Biblical Principles?
5- Are you ready to surrender your bodies to one another?
6- Is he willing to die for you, cherish you, provide for you, pray for you?
7- Is she willing to with a loving heart submit to you?
8- Are you willing to bring previously two separate life agendas to be merged into one unified “Life Business Plan”
9- Will our Life Business be governed by Divine Design or power struggles?
10- Are you in Love with that person? or in Love with the idea of Marriage?
If you believe you ARE A WIFE, and not getting prepared to be, then embrace the Divine Design and Business Plan of The Lord.
“Ladies In Waiting”:
Let The Lord do His work on Boaz, but don’t forget that when The Lord has finished, He has created for you a King. A marriage to him as the King makes you a Queen, second in command to all that he has and manifests.
So if you want your King, follow the Divine Design, it will work if you work it!
“Ladies In Waiting” (like Ruth). Whoever you are, God does have a Boaz that HE HAS prepared for you, HOWEVER, ARE YOU PREPARED FOR HIM?!…stay tuned, more to come…++Joshua Paul
Ruth 3:1-11 (MSG)
1 One day her mother-in-law Naomi said to Ruth, “My dear daughter, isn’t it about time I arranged a good home for you so you can have a happy life?
2 And isn’t Boaz our close relative, the one with whose young women you’ve been working? Maybe it’s time to make our move. Tonight is the night of Boaz’s barley harvest at the threshing floor.
3 “Take a bath. Put on some perfume. Get all dressed up and go to the threshing floor. But don’t let him know you’re there until the party is well under way and he’s had plenty of food and drink.
4 When you see him slipping off to sleep, watch where he lies down and then go there. Lie at his feet to let him know that you are available to him for marriage. Then wait and see what he says. He’ll tell you what to do.”
5 Ruth said, “If you say so, I’ll do it, just as you’ve told me.”
6 She went down to the threshing floor and put her mother-in-law’s plan into action.
7 Boaz had a good time, eating and drinking his fill—he felt great. Then he went off to get some sleep, lying down at the end of a stack of barley. Ruth quietly followed; she lay down to signal her availability for marriage.
8 In the middle of the night the man was suddenly startled and sat up. Surprise! This woman asleep at his feet!
9 He said, “And who are you?” She said, “I am Ruth, your maiden; take me under your protecting wing. You’re my close relative, you know, in the circle of covenant redeemers—you do have the right to marry me.”
10 He said, “GOD bless you, my dear daughter! What a splendid expression of love! And when you could have had your pick of any of the young men around.
11 And now, my dear daughter, don’t you worry about a thing; I’ll do all you could want or ask. Everybody in town knows what a courageous woman you are—a real prize!
Ruth 3:16-18 (MSG)
16 When she came to her mother-in-law, Naomi asked, “And how did things go, my dear daughter?”
17 Ruth told her everything that the man had done for her, adding, “And he gave me all this barley besides—six quarts! He told me, ‘You can’t go back empty-handed to your mother-in-law!’ ”
18 Naomi said, “Sit back and relax, my dear daughter, until we find out how things turn out; that man isn’t going to fool around. Mark my words, he’s going to get everything wrapped up today.”
