Allured by His love

Intimate Adoration ~ Allured by His love

Hosea 2:14-15: Therefore, behold, I will allure her, I will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her. I will give her her vineyards from there, And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

Can you hear His whispers? Linger here and you will hear what the Spirit has to say to you. This is our time to ask for more – more of Him, more of His wisdom, more of His power, and more of His vision. Intimately knowing God’s heart is vital to navigating these dark days we are living in. It’s far too easy to get swept into the frenzy and lose our priorities in its tyrannical demands and chaotic trials. We must run after Him, especially when He calls.

Song of Solomon 7:13The mandrakes give off a fragrance, and at our gates are pleasant fruits, all manner, new and old, which I have laid up for you, My beloved.
  • Mandrakes: the love-flowers or lovely ones (so the word signifies), or the love-fruits; it was something that was in all respects very grateful
  • Your life should have stored up and ready to be meted out pleasant fruits. This is your reasonable service to Him whom your soul loves. (Romans 12:1-2)
