The Invitation to Come

The one I love calls to me: Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one. Song of Songs 2:10 Passion Translation

From my journal on 01192012: “It’s time to get the attention of those slumbering. Awake I say, Awake! Stop living in comfort and ease, your spiritual laziness is keeping you from the readiness you need to be in. I’m releasing promise. I’m releasing vision. I’m releasing a multitude of giftings, but so few are paying attention. Awake, daughter of Zion. Awake from your slumber. Get your lamps trimmed and filled for the day has come, the marriage supper is being prepared. Do you sense the longing in you? Do you not sense it? Prepare yourself to receive what I’m pouring out on the earth, for in due season, you will reap if you faint not,” says the Lord.

Perhaps you’ve heard the call, the tugging on your spirit to come away, to be with Him, your beloved. There’s an old song I used to sing called, I Miss My Time With You, written by: LARNELLE HARRIS, PHILL MCHUGH

“I miss my time with you, those moments together. I need to be with you each day and it hurts me when you say, you’re too busy, busy trying to serve me, but how can you serve me when your spirits empty. There’s a longing in my heart, wanting more than just a part of you. It’s true, I miss my time with you.”

I used to make up every excuse in the book to avoid getting up early and having devotions, but the bottom line was, I didn’t know the value in spending time with God. I didn’t realize it would change me so, give me this much strength. I’ve always loved God, always had relationship with Him, almost always served Him, but my friend, until you’re intimate with someone, you’re not one with them and that is what God wants. He wants you to be one with Him.

Revelation 22:17, “And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.”

What will your response be? Excuse me while I run into his open arms of love and am swept away in His presence.
