“I slept but my lover was awake, when I heard my lover knocking and calling.” Song of songs 5:2
The voice that calls to you in the deep place of your heart is the voice of God.
It is often a whisper, a still small voice, a delicate invitation to come and enjoy the fruits of the garden
But there is a tendency within all of us to push away that whisper and let the cares and hurts of life take root. Brokenness, heartache, disappointment, fear and worry cause our hearts to hide, shut down and eventually go to sleep.
The Apostle Paul saw this and in his letter to Christians living in Rome he wrote “Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” Romans 13:11.
God is knocking and calling at our hearts to live in the fullness of his finished work to acknowledge every good thing that has been planted into the good soil of our hearts.
He comes as a lover to arouse us to enjoy the fullness of his love. He calls us into a passionate relationship consumed with his glory and grace.
He has awaken our hearts to his desire and takes us by the hand into his delight.
He wants to whisper his words of love and awaken your heart to hear his voice.
