I Want More
“Tell me oh you whom my soul loves, where you feed, where you make your flock to rest at noon: For why should I be as one that turns aside by the flocks of your companions?” Song of Solomon 1:7
In effect, she is saying, “I can no longer be satisfied to simply go to church on Sunday morning, hear a message, go home and spend the rest of the week doing my own things, and then return the following Sunday to hear another message.”
“Why should I be among them? Lord, tell me where YOU are. I want to come beyond the shadow into the reality of Your presence. Tell me Lord, where are those who truly know You, who make room for You to move as you please? Lord, show me the way, as now I desire to go beyond my present spiritual experience.”
The Lord will respond to this desire, as we were created for communion and fellowship with Him, and nothing short of this will ever satisfy. She now realizes that it is not enough just to be continually blessed. There has to be something beyond His provision for us.
“My Beloved spoke, and said to me, Rise up My love My fair one and come away.” Song of Solomon 2:10
This is a call to rise above all the “things” that are less than His personal presence.
“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth. The time of the singing of birds is come….” Song of Solomon 2:11-12
She is beginning to see into the realms of the spirit that will lead to the Lord Himself. She has been set free from her self-centered seeking. Now she can identify with His calling and purpose for her.
“I am my Beloved’s, and His desire is toward me.” Song of Solomon 7:10
Now with a single desire, she can enter into the harmony of Heaven and worship the Lord for who He is, and find the satisfaction she was created for – her life merged into His life, to become the expression of His life in all the earth.
May each of us enter into and experience all that she experienced, that we also might become the expression of His life at this present time.
