One of the wonderful truths about God that is revealed in His Word and evident throughout history is His divine providence. It simply means that He is always working out the details of His sovereign plan even when we can’t see it. According to His providence, God works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. This is seen all throughout Scripture, but perhaps nowhere is it more vividly seen than in the small book of Ruth. Though it is very small and consists of only four chapters, the book of Ruth is one of the most beautiful stories ever written. It is a love story. It is a story of redemption and grace for an unlikely recipient.
