A beautiful story is told in the book of Ruth that reflects the Church and Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
When Ruth was working in the field gleaning, she was able to gather 1 ephah of barley, which is about 10 days supply.
Ruth 2:17 (ESV)
17 So she gleaned in the field until evening. Then she beat out what she had gleaned, and it was about an ephah of barley.
When she rested at the feet of Boaz, she received 6 ephah of barley, 60 days or 2 months supply.
Ruth 3:15 (ESV)
15 And he said, “Bring the garment you are wearing and hold it out.” So she held it, and he measured out six measures of barley and put it on her. Then she went into the city.
When she married Boaz, no more supplies because the whole field belonged to her.
Like Ruth, be encourage. As we rest at the feet of our Lord Jesus, trusting in His unfailing love, we will accomplish much more through rest than we will ever do by our own efforts.
Rest today in His love for you.
