The Lord is dancing and singing over us, ‘My beloved is Mine and I am hers’.
Do we behold the passion of His Heart? Do we recognise the emotion in His Voice and feel the double-beat of His heart as He looks at us?
For we are His Love Story. We are His Own. He is calling a people who are overtaken and overwhelmed by the depths of His unending love. A people completely won over by Him.
For it is easy to surrender to our God, our King, Who has laid down everything for us. Let’s meditate on Him, and allow His Love to penetrate every part of us.
For it is the revelation of His Love that heals, delivers and sets us free from every bondage of slavery.
Song of Solomon 4:9-16
9You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride;
you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes,
with one jewel of your necklace.
10How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride!
How much better is your love than wine,
and the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
11Your lips drip nectar, my bride;
honey and milk are under your tongue;
the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
12A garden locked is my sister, my bride,
a spring locked, a fountain sealed.
13Your shoots are an orchard of pomegranates
with all choicest fruits,
henna with nard,
14nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,
with all trees of frankincense,
myrrh and aloes,
with all choice spices—
15a garden fountain, a well of living water,
and flowing streams from Lebanon.
16Awake, O north wind,
and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden,
let its spices flow.
