“Tell me, O thou whom my soul lovest, where thou feedest (feed your flocks), where thou makest thy flocks to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside ( veils herself) by the flocks of thy companions?” Solomon 1:7
She wants to follow him and him alone, she does not want to hang out with his fellow shepherd’s and appear as one of a more questionable reputation. She wants assurance that she is never mistaken as belonging to anyone other than him and in order to do that he must lead her to HIS secret places where he feeds his flock among the lilies which translates to with love and in the garden of all things beautiful. She can’t just go there, she must follow.
This is a tad different than Jesus commanding us to take up our cross and follow Him, still must be done but this is a following Him out of adoration and a soul drenching desire to know Him deeper and be with Him and to breath in His very breath of apples and to worship Him in the true beauty of His Holiness. Such as David “being AFTER God’s own heart” a scripture I take different than most, I feel that David was truly desirous of knowing and being part of the very heart of God. To have our spiritual senses awakened by the heavenly fragrance of aloes, cassia, and myrrh ( some may not believe this but others know it as fact but the logic defying of an anointing that you can literally smell) and no other will do because only one shepherd, the true shepherd, the undisputed King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Holy and beautiful Lamb Himself can lead us to that feeding ground and that resting place where no matter what happens in the earthly realm we will be refreshed by the waters of His rivers and rest ours souls in the secret place of the Most High. Day by day, night by night, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second. Each and every day, only one day at a time, rejoicing each day because it is a day that He has made and His mercy is new ever day.
He tells us so clearly to not think of the past, to forget the former things and leave them behind. Do not give thought to our tomorrow because we know not what it may hold but to LIVE in this day, HIS day because HE IS our ever present help and forever by our side. But we must want to go, we are saved, we are His but oh there is so much more!
Psalm 110:3: ” THY PEOPLE SHALL BE WILLING ( VOLUNTEERS ) IN THE DAY OF THY POWER, IN THE BEAUTIES OF HOLINESS FROM THE WOMB OF THE MORNING: THOU HAST THE DEW OF THY YOUTH.”
A beautiful BIRTH OF THE MORNING AFTER THE DARK, DARK NIGHT. The gentle dew bringing refreshment, healing and making all things NEW AND FRESH ONCE AGAIN. All that is required of us is to desire it and to FOLLOW Him when He bids “COME”.
That simple. As His sheep, His servants, His maidens and all who love and worship Him.
Isaiah 35: 1-10: “Strengthen ye the weak (sinking) hands, and confirm (make strong) the feeble knees (help each other stand).
SAY to them that are of a fearful heart, BE STRONG, FEAR NOT; BEHOLD, YOUR GOD WILL COME WITH VENGENANCE, EVEN GOD WITH A RECOMPENSE AND SAVE YOU.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing:
For in the WILDERNESS shall waters break out and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons (jackals) where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes( even the places where the enemy has lie in wait for you, will now become blessed and fertile).
AND AN HIGHWAY SHALL BE THERE, AND A WAY (road), AND IT SHALL BE CALLED THE WAY OF HOLINESS; THE UNCLEAN SHALL NOT PASS OVER IT: BUT IT SHALL BE FOR THOSE: THE WAYFARING ( those who walk THE road), THOUGH FOOLS, SHALL NOT ERR ( protected, even from themselves, that they WILL NOT GO ASTRAY) THEREIN.
No lion shall be found there, nor ANY ravenous beast shall go up thereon, IT shall not be found there; BUT THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SHALL WALK THERE: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: THEY SHALL OBTAIN JOY AND GLADNESS, AND SORROW AND SIGHING SHALL FLEE AWAY.”
Once we follow that path, that road, even though we may not be that smart at making our decisions we will not “err” because He will guide and keep us on that path, those ravenous beasts are the carnal attitudes and stumbling blocks that we must overcome because they WILL NOT be allowed there. I feel His call today, as He called the disciples to follow, would be this:
Solomon 4:8: “COME WITH ME from Lebanon, my spouse, WITH ME from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions dens, from the mountains of the leopards.”
My prayer for all of us, His children the world over, in 2016: Dear Lord Jesus Father God, may we bask in your light and let your heavenly glow flow from us from us all and let us be the light in this pitch black world that you left us to be. May your Holy Fire fall on all as in the Day of Pentecost and let the Fire Baptism refine us as precious gold for the Kingdom. May the living waters from your throne proceed out of our bellies and flow even past orders of our own fallen nation and heal lands and seal those for the great and faithful day to come. Let the signs and wonders follow as you allowed for the disciples, let the miracles come as proof to those who do not believe. Let the great harvest of souls be reaped in the love of you and your mercy. Father, may our minds be renewed likened unto your yours and may our souls forever be entwined in oneness with you and bring swift justice upon the heads of the oppressors and allow your will to be done on earth and it is in heaven, Deliver all those who suffer from evil and bring us all into that glorious day when all nations shall bow before you and all shall worship at your feet, every eye shall see and every tongue shall confess that you are Lord and bring glory to the Father and let our eyes be fixed upon the great day when the words shall be proclaimed for all the universe, even the hosts of heaven “ THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KIGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST; AND HE SHALL REIGN FOR EVER.” In the name above every name, Jesus of Nazareth, AMEN.
