Intentional Portions

27th February 2020

Scripture Reading: Ruth 2: 15-18


“And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.” (Ruth 2: 16)

In our Focal Scripture, Boaz ordered his men to allow some handfuls of their harvest to fall, and that Ruth be allowed to pick them up without being rebuked. Boaz ordered that a part of his own harvest be deliberately and intentionally allowed to fall into the path of Ruth. He ordered that a portion of resources be placed specially so that Ruth can pick them up. This was not a case of accidental provision; it was a case of deliberate provision.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2020, God will cause your portion to fall intentionally for you. God will intentionally plant some great opportunities on your pathway; God will strategically position men on your pathway that will aid your rise to your next level; God will cause some favours to come your way deliberately; God will position special doors that will open to you and no one else; God will give you intentional portions.

Ruth was going to start seeing good portions on her pathway, not because she worked for it, but because an instruction was given concerning it. Get set: God is giving instructions for your next level, and it will fall to you on your pathway; God is giving instructions concerning your expansion and increase, and it will come to your doorstep; your blessings shall be called commanded blessings that you didn’t work for.

By virtue of Boaz’s instructions, the portions that were deliberately left for Ruth were not to be taken by anyone else. They were intentionally kept for her, and they were not open for hijack or diversion. Hear me as I hear the Lord: as your portion falls intentionally on divine instructions, no man will take your portion; no man will take what God has made available to you; what is available to you will not be available for hijack.

Ask God to drop your portion of intentional blessings on your pathway; ask God to position your portion on your pathway.


I shall have intentional portions, in Jesus’ name!
