Amplified Bible
So Boaz took Ruth, and she became his wife. And he went in to her, and the LORD enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son.

Whichever way you translate this text, you have no other way to put the fact that God made it possible. God enabled it. God stepped in and did what could not happen except by God’s power. God enabled Boaz and Ruth to have a child. May the LORD enable…

Boaz followed the entire cultural procedure in acquiring Ruth as a wife. Ruth and Boaz even before the cultural procedure had met and did what is humanly possible. They admired each other. They approached each other. They agreed to marry if all goes well. Procedures laid down by society are important and they followed them. After the cultural approval, they got married. They even consummated the marriage. At this point what is humanly possible came to an end and the good LORD stepped in and because of God, they got a child. God enabled them. May the LORD enable…

Reproductive biology may explain the process of conception and childbirth but until they acknowledge God’s enabling, the explanation is false and inadequate. People married with kids and those married without kids and wishing to have kids do the same things, the difference is God enables one and not the other. Boaz and Ruth played their role and then God enabled. May the LORD enable…

We can follow the exact same procedures but in the end, the results are not the same. God makes the difference. Same soil, same seed, same fertilizers, same farming methods, same sun and rainfall, and then when harvest comes it’s different. God can enable a bumper harvest or otherwise. God can make the same food to be much more nutritious to one person and not the other. God can step into natural processes and change the results for His glory. Boaz and Ruth did what was naturally possible and God stepped in and enabled. May the LORD enable…

Same schools. The same course of study. Same teachers. Same studies. same exams. Even the same results. Then God enables one to go further academically. God enables another one in varied ways. God’s enabling everything. If God had not enabled Boaz and Ruth, there would have been no child. God enabled. May the LORD enable…

There will be no child unless God enables. There will be no profit unless God enables it. There will be no success unless God enables it. There will be no good adults unless God enables parenting. There will be no healing and good health unless God enables healthful living and medical interventions. Without God’s intervention, all our best efforts and strict adherence to the procedure will amount to nothing. God has to enable, for it to happen. May the LORD enable…

God expects us to do our part faithfully. Our faithful part is not enough until God enables it. If you wait for God’s enabling but you do not play your part, nothing will happen. Do something and let God enable it. Do something right, something correct, and God will enable it. God will not enable homosexuals to naturally have a child, because LGBTQ is contrary to God’s will and God cannot bless and enable what He doesn’t approve of. Do your rightful faithful part and God will enable it to succeed. May the LORD enable…

May the LORD enable, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
