Song of Solomon 3:1-2 (NKJV) By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. 2 “I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.” I sought him, but I did not find him.
She is having a separation anxiety attack. Her king has left her alone in the palace and she cannot sleep without him. She is restless, and in her anguish, she goes out into the streets of the city to look for her king whom she loves. This has a marvelous spiritual application to our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A. Moody Stuart explains it this way: “But if Christ is first and best and most necessary, if He is more to us than food or sleep, He is often, though not always, quickly found, without actual loss either of the time or of the sleep which we were willing to sacrifice for His sake. Our sleep is then sweet unto us and refreshing, for the Lord Himself is dwelling in us, and resting with us.” When Christ is more important to us than food and sleep, we will be determined to seek the Lord with all of our hearts. But it is sad to say that a great many Christians attend church once a week or even twice a week, but they never find Jesus. Because they are not seeking after Him wholeheartedly. Oh, how we need to humble ourselves before the Lord and seek His face. My friend, God wants to have fellowship with you. How will you respond to God’s love? Will you respond like David who said “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”” Will your heart respond, by saying “I love You Lord!”
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
