Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out…
Beloved, burn with a passion that refuses to be quenched. No trial or perceived lack can cause you to doubt the intensity of your feelings for Me. The actions of others cannot shift your gaze, but rather your wholehearted love is steadfast and sure.
Be ardent, beloved. Singleminded and unwavering in your affection. Then allow your actions to flow from this foundation of love, for when you love Me to a point of near obsession, you cannot hate or resent My creation. Mirroring My heart of grace and compassion becomes easier because your heart is fixed on Me.
In the same way, your work will flow from a heart of love rather than obligation. You’ll know you have no need to earn My affection because it is already most assuredly yours. Then the joy of partnering with Me truly is a joy and not a burden. So flow from a place of love and burn with unquenchable passion for Me. Continue reading “Unquenchable Passion”
Song of Solomon 8:4 (VOICE) …Heed my warning: I charge you not to excite your love until it is ready. Don’t stir a fire in your heart too soon, until it is ready to be satisfied.
Be patient, beloved, and trust My timing. Resist the urge to be impatient or to move ahead of My plans. Everything must be in its season. You cannot rush a fruit to ripen, nor speed the growth of a child through nagging, so resist the urge to try.
Wait upon Me. Surrender to My cadence. Stay in step. Allow your longing to grow to full maturation without it edging into frustration or agitation. Enjoy the blooming season, and embrace the passionate awakening wholeheartedly in its time.
Song of Songs 2:11-12 (TPT) The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
Beloved, it’s time. You’ve prepared and you’ve waited – longing even for the new season, and now it’s time. Without hesitation step forward in full confidence that I AM leading and you are ready.
So with Me by your side and your hand in Mine, walk with Me into what lies ahead. For though the cost has been high, the wait will be worth it. Rejoice, beloved, and embrace the new.
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) …If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
Beloved, you cannot buy My love anymore than I can gain your constancy through gifts. A love available for purchase is no love at all. So if your love is conditional upon My blessings, it is not truly love.
Love stands in the face of trials and adversity. Love is immovable and unchangeable. True love is unconditional and constant. That is the love I have lavished on you. Will you lavish the same upon Me?
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
Song of Solomon 8:6 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame.
Beloved, be overcome with devotion for Me. I AM the lover of your soul, the One your heart desires – the only One who can truly fulfill you. Hunger for Me, as I ardently burn for you. Nothing can diminish My love for you, and let nothing dampen your fiery passion for Me.
Wear My love like a brand – a mark clearly identifying you as belonging to Me. For you do. And nothing can break that covenant connection. Let the world see and know, for I will not share your affections, beloved. You have given yourself to Me, so you are indeed Mine.
Song of Songs 2:13 (TPT) Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
Beloved, step into your destiny. For I have called you, and you have answered. Burst forth and bloom – show the world all I have cultivated in the garden of your heart over the long season of preparation.
You are beautiful, My love, and all I have seen inside I AM now revealing to the world at large. So shine forth. Blossom and bloom. Arise, and step up into the higher place to which you’ve been called. For I have made you for such a time as this – arise and bloom.
Song of Songs 1:2 (TPT) Let him smother me with kisses—his Spirit-kiss divine. So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest wine!
Beloved, receive My fresh flow from heaven. For I AM pouring out My love like the sweetest of wine to minister to your heart. Heady and intoxicating – be swept away in the rushing flow as you surrender to My love.
Persistent and irresistible, yield to My heart, beloved. You have nothing to fear from Me, for I love you with a passionate intensity beyond your wildest imaginings. You are the apple of My eye and immeasurably precious to Me. Drown in My affections and be made whole.
Song of Songs 2:3 (TPT) My beloved is to me the most fragrant apple tree— he stands above the sons of men. Sitting under his grace-shadow, I blossom in his shade, enjoying the sweet taste of his pleasant, delicious fruit, resting with delight where his glory never fades.
Beloved, tarry with Me and partake of My fruits, for they are rich and nourishing and pleasing to enjoying. Luxuriate in My presence, and take delight in Me. Allow My shadow to protect and cover you as you rest and abide in Me.
Though you may seek Me with fervor each day for the rest of your life, I will ever have new depths for you to plumb and fresh revelation to impart. I AM limitless. Just when you think you may be at a place of full understanding, I open up a new aspect of Myself for you to enjoy, so delight in Me for I AM enough.
So, beloved, feast on My fruit, for it is sweet and is the foundation of life. In Me there is no lack. Delight in My abundance and the pleasure My love brings, for only I can satisfy so make your home in Me.
Song of Songs 4:10 (TPT) How satisfying to me, my equal, my bride. Your love is my finest wine—intoxicating and thrilling. And your sweet, perfumed praises—so exotic, so pleasing.
Beloved, do you know how you move Me? Do you know how your affections minister to My heart? My love for you is powerful and overwhelming, but surely you must know that yours is equally affecting to Me. You are My deepest desire – the apple of My eye, for you to choose Me and pursue Me is the sweetest of gifts!
Let’s stay enthralled with one another – just as newlyweds exist in a place all their own even in a crowded room. Let’s abide in that place where nothing can intervene – where our gazes stay locked together even as the world goes on around us and life’s distractions won’t steal the focus. Come, beloved, and get lost in love with Me. Continue reading “Lost in Love”
Song of Songs 1:3 (TPT) Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing— over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you.
Beloved, allow Me to invade your senses. Be still and pause in My presence. Wait on Me to make Myself known. Smell My sweet fragrance and allow the flow of My Spirit – My anointing – to coat you with precious oil as thick as honey.
May it stick to you as you move on with your activities, allowing Me to remain tangibly close to My precious one, and continually reminding you of the sweetness of our fellowship. Abide with Me, and keep Me in your focus all day everyday, for I AM with you always.
