Song of Solomon 1:4

Song of Solomon 1:4

 

Draw me away!”   “We will run after you”    “The King has brought me into His chambers….”   

 

Draw me away!”   The fragrance of who He is, is poured forth, and it draws us to Him. Like the perfume of the rose or the lilac bush draws you to it, that you might drink in the satisfying aroma, so the fragrance of the character and person of our Lord creates with in our hearts a desire for Him.

 

 It becomes the deep longing of the soul to be near Him, to enjoy His presence.   “The Lord has appeared of old to me saying, “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you…””   Jeremiah 31:3    With the cords of His love He has drawn us to Himself.   (Hosea 11:4.)

 

It is the yearning of the heart of this Shulamite woman, who is in deep love, to be “drawn away” by Him, to His magnificent presence.   She longs to be lead away from the occupation of the ordinary, mundane things of life, to occupation with Him, the desire of her heart.  

 

Is it the yearning of our hearts today to be “Drawn away”?   Do we wake in the morning with a deep longing in our hearts for the lover of our soul?   Does our heart go out to Him as we occupy ourselves with the fragrance of His person.   “Occupied with thee Lord Jesus I would be…”

 

The King has brought me into his chambers…”   The reward of a heart that pants after Him.   To be lead by the savior Himself into “ His chambers.”   In His presence is fullness of Joy…”   (Psalm 16:11)  

 

The desire for intimacy of relationship with the Lord of Glory, Seek it.   “Seek me and you will find me if you seek me with all your heart.”  

 

“I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses. And the voice I hear falling on my ear, the Son of God discloses.   And He walks with me, and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own.   And the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.”
