These words dropped into my heart today. “Do not frolic in Solomon’s garden with someone else and expect to marry Jesus”. The Lord watches the adulterous tendencies of mankind. He sees all, yet, because of who He is, He continues to long for fellowship with us, for our most sincere adoration; He desires to embrace us utterly.
Who or what draws us from our greatest love? Has something taken His place? Jesus is the bridegroom who watches us affectionately, waiting for His bride to come to Him. Yet we frolic with false gods, we satisfy our fleshly appetites and chase selfish goals. We indulge in thoughts and activities that keep us from investing in the most important relationship of our lives.
Jesus waits for us to repent. He was waiting and watching yesterday, and He will do the same today! He is the most faithful of all loves. In the book of Song of Solomon, chapter 5 it reads, “His eyes are like doves, soft and bright, but deep-set, brimming with meaning, like wells of water.”
Jesus looks on us with the gentleness of a dove, seeing through eyes that are untainted; His vision is unveiled, so He sees us in the purest sense. His gift of salvation presents us as faultless before the Father. His eyes are deep-set; the depth of His character beckons for our attention. His deep calls to our deep. He cries from His essence, “Come”.
Lock eyes with Jesus and let the wells of water that spring from Him cleanse and renew your human soul. Like waterfalls that rush over stone, soil, and flora, everything is washed, and your relationship with Him is refreshed once again.
Frolic with Jesus and lack no good thing. Respond, engage, and prepare for the privilege of being His bride.
Song of Solomon 4:9 NIV You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.
