It is Time to Hit the Floor

boy praying on floor

At a church service……several churches were all assembled  

for Convention. The church building was filled…. then 

A wonderful thing happened…. the Praise Ministers ushered in the 

presence of (God) Yahweh, the God who redeems. In an instant I hit 

the floor on my knees….my spirit within said these words, ” I have 

missed You so much! ” Take note sometimes we as God’s (Yahweh’s) 

people get so caught up in doing so much for God. We neglect to spend 

that vital time in His presence seeking His face! The Psalmist 

David said in chapter 16:11 “You will show to me the path of life; 

In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures 

forevermore. “Yes, wonderful life changing things happen when you and 

I hit the floor. Let us take a closer look at the purpose of the floor 

in Numbers 15:20 ” You shall offer up a cake of the first of your ground 

meal as a heave offering: a heave offering of the threshing floor, so 

shall you offer it up.” In the Bible days floor then was a stone or clay 

platform used for threshing grain or part of a house on which the residents 

walked. Question is…Have you and I made a floor in our homes specifically 

for Abba Father? Listen to these instructions given to Ruth by her mother 

in law Naomi in Ruth 3:2-4 (2) “Now Boaz, whose young women you were with, 

Is he not our relative ? In fact, he is winnowing barley tonight at the 

threshing floor. (3) ” Therefore, wash yourself and anoint yourself, put on 

your best garment and go down to the threshing floor; but do not make your 

self-known to the man, until he has finished eating and drinking. (4) ” Then 

it shall be when he lies down, that you shall notice the place where he lies, 

and you shall go in, uncover his feet, and lie down; and he will tell you 

what you should do. ” Listen to Ruth’s reply to Naomi her mother-in-law (5) 

And she said to her ” All that you say to me I will do. ” Pause for a moment 

right here…. think about this…. Hitting the floor in that place where you 

have chosen to spend time with Abba Father….Now ask yourself (I will do the 

same) …. When Abba Father shows up…. Are you willing to say to Him and be 

obedient to Him as Ruth was to Naomi? This bears repeating verse (5) ” All 

that you say to me I will do.” For Abba Father will give to you specific 

instructions giving to you His words to speak to His people. Yet how many  

times do we attempt to alter what He has spoken? How many times are we 

disobedient to Him in not doing all He has called us to do? Let us read what 

Ruth following instructions in verse (7) “And after Boaz had eaten and drunk, 

and his heart was cheerful, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of 

grain; and she came softly, uncovered his feet, and lay down. ” Do you know 

on the floor at midnight things begin to happen? It is time to hit the floor! 

Verse (8) “Now it happened at midnight that the man was startled, and turned 

himself, and there, a woman was laying at his feet. ” Sometimes you may have 

to stay on the floor all night before the LORD until the morning to get a 

breakthrough! Are you willing? Read verse (13) “Stay this night, and in the 

morning it shall be that if he will perform the duty of a close relative for 

you- good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, 

as the LORD lives! Lie down until the morning. “Abba Father will not only 

cover you when you hit the floor, He will also hide you verse (14) “So she 

lay at his feet until morning, and she arose before one could recognize another!” 

Verse (15) ‘ Also he said: Bring the shawl that is on thee and hold it “And 

when she held it, he measured six ephahs of barley, and laid it on her. Then 

She went into the city. “The time has come for you and me to discipline ourselves 

to sit still and wait to see the manifestation of the breakthroughs in our lives. 

Naomi says to Ruth in verse (18) “Then she said, sit still, my daughter, until 

you know how the matter will turn out, for the man will not rest until he has 

concluded the matter this day.” 

I admonish you……that not only is it time to hit the floor, whether it is 

walking, kneeling, or laying prostrate before Him……it is time to hit the  

floor. For truly as Yahweh’s (God’s) people, we have become too caught up in 

the cares of this world, we have become too busy and too tired to hit the floor, 

and to seek His face. Too exhausted to tarry all night before Him! The reality 

is we must check in….. hit the floor to hear directly from the throne room of 

Yahweh (God) to make sure we are truly following His instructions……pause 

to think about this…. even though we may be sincere in the way we are doing 

things…. get this! We could be sincerely wrong. The danger is if we are 

walking the floor in disobedience we run the risk of hearing Jesus say to you 

and to me from Matthew 25:42:45 (42) ‘ For I was hungry, and you gave me no  

food; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink;” (43) “I was a stranger and you 

did not take me in, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and 

you did not visit me.” (44) ” Then they also will answer Him, saying,” Lord, 

when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger, naked, or sick or in 

prison, and did not minister to You? ” (45) ” Then He will answer them, saying, 

” Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of 

these you did not do it to me. ” Pause for a for a few moments to read this 

poem the pen wrote….it is entitled A BOAZ BLESSING! 

Ruth came quietly…. she uncovered his feet 

And lay down next to his feet…at midnight 

He awakened and found her there. 

She had a special request of him 

Cover me with your covering is all she wanted. 

Yes, a virtuous woman was Ruth….Boaz being 

Much obliged allowed her to stay at his feet 

Until dawn…. Within that day Boaz 

Redeemed not only the land for her, but he 

Also took her hand in marriage…. blessing 

Ruth also with bountiful measures of rich barley. 

In one day, Ruth’s whole life changed from poverty 

To wealth and prosperity…. She received 

A Boaz Blessing! 

It is time for each of us to hit the floor asking our Heavenly Father…. 

How do you want this to be done? Asking Him to teach us His way like David, 

who cried out to Abba Father in Psalm 27:11 ” Teach me Your way, Oh LORD. ” 

Then we must allow His Holy Spirit to teach us! I dare you to hit the floor 

to seek the face of Yahweh, the God who redeems then watch as your whole life 

changes…. Experience Yahweh (God) usher you into another dimension and like 

Ruth, you will receive a Boaz blessing! She received bountiful measures of 

rich barley…. Hitting the floor will change your life forever! You will never 

be the same! Dare to hit the floor in your home and watch as Abba Father  

transforms your entire household! Dare to hit the floor in the church building 

where you worship…then watch through the work of the Holy Spirit souls being 

delivered and set free through the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ! It is 

time to hit the floor so that at the praise gathering lives would be transformed 

and souls would be saved for the kingdom…. Be there! He awaits you this 

day! It is time to hit the floor! 

Our Actions Reveal if We are Faking It

From the book of Isaiah chapter 1 verses 12 – 17: God gave the Prophet Isaiah a clear message to His people to stop making worship a charade. The people were putting on a show during worship. They acted like they believed God but their insincerity rendered their acts of worship empty and meaningless. God refused their outward displays, saying in verse (13) “Bring no more vain oblations”

Where are you, (me too) in your walk with God? The lives of the people did not reflect the faith they displayed in the temple nor the words which they spoke. The question: Are we reflecting our faith in the way we live our lives daily? Think about this as you tune in to this evening’s Prayer.

God Bless you right where you are! 🙏❤
