TOPIC: His Desires Are Toward Me

READ: Song Of Solomon 7:10-8:4 (KJV)

10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.

11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.

13 The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.

8 O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, I should not be despised.

2 I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house, who would instruct me: I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate.

3 His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.

4 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, until he please.


Our scripture passage today goes on to express the affections shared by the two lovers who cherished the times spent together. They desired to be with each other.

This typically exemplifies the type of friendship we are expected to enjoy with Jesus. His desires are always towards us and when our own desires meet with His, our appetite for the world and its glories will die, and we can thenceforth, live in the new creation realities.

PRAYER: O Lord my God, there is no doubt Your desires are toward me, help me to see nothing else in this world except your. Help me to also see everything through Your own eyes, Amen!
