My lover spoke and said to me, “Arise, My darling, My beautiful one, and come with Me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come…” Song of Solomon 2:10-12 NIV
We are not meant to continually experience “winter.” Trials are part of life, but they are not to be a believer’s way of life.
It is possible for us to become comfortable in trials. We can begin to take root and pitch a tent in these tribulations if we are not careful. When we become accustomed to the trial, we are ignoring the promises of God. God does not keep us from trials, but He does provide for us so that we can arise out of them!
Our Lord is our Lover. No one’s love can compare to His. His plans are based on His love for us. Trials are not designed to defeat us; His desire is for the trial to make us better. Arise! We are God’s darlings! We are His beautiful ones! He calls out, “Come with Me!” Are we answering His invitation or are we too rooted in the trials?
God is announcing the end of the Winter! Join with the birds in singing a new song – the song of Summer, a song of praise for God’s goodness! According to God you are blessed now! Winter is over! Take hold of the Summer of His Love!
