Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her Beloved? Song of Solomon 8:5
In the dark cave of the wilderness the enemy speaks to you. He takes advantage of your weakness in the dry places. In your personal desert he delights in making you his prey. This one who roams about, seeking whom he might devour, claws at you with temptation and doubt.
The burning love of devotion for your Beloved is tested. While the enemy roars, Holy Spirit’s still quiet voice continues to repeat the truths of the magnificent love that shines from your armor. “Though a thousand may fall at my right hand, and ten thousand at my left, it shall not come near me.” You are determined to do more than survive; you have the heart of an overcomer.
The wind of love’s truth sweeps through the valley in your heart. With renewed vigor, you rise up in your true identity, and are no longer hindered by the tauntings of the evil one. They have no hold in you because you are the King’s Bride. Oh, the power of walking in truth!
*Thank You, beautiful King, for sharing Your life with me. The cross has done its work and is finished. The glorious light of your resurrection power now rules in me. No longer do I try to apprehend it. You have caused me to live it! His pillar strength upholds and guides my every step.*
