The Goodness of the Lord by StacyLee

Do not let it be known that the woman came to the threshing floor. ~Ruth 3:14

The threshing floor is where the heads of grain would be broken from the stalks. This was done with either oxen trampling the stalks or by a threshing sledge. You can imagine that this can be a rather painful experience if we put ourselves into the shoes of the wheat. Yet, I believe God puts us through this process to refine us, mold us and transform us into His image for His Glory (Isaiah 28:23-29). Ruth certainly experienced this after her devastating losses (husband, brother in law, father in law, and homeland). However, I believe the LORD is saying in the above scripture (in symbolic terms) that He is going to exalt her so high that no one would ever even know unless they were told of the very humbling circumstances that God allowed into Ruth’s life to prepare her on the threshing floor for His Glory. This of course came to past as she is the great grandmother of King David and eventually of Jesus Himself. Yes, it is true that God does indeed exalt the humble (James 4:6)
