“Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?” (Song of Solomon 8:5 NRSV)
These words evoke a vivid image of the beloved Savior faithfully stepping into wild places to rescue His adoring children. We have all found ourselves in these places at times. I wonder what the wilderness might look like for us?
Perhaps we have become overwhelmed by fear or anxiety, are distracted by the false attachments and enticements of the world or are struggling to stand firm in our faith under pressure or persecution.
Perhaps we have lost our way in a wilderness full of competing choices or conflicting decisions, or we are overwhelmed by work commitments, ill health, or family troubles. Which way is out and who will come to our assistance?
Jesus is the One who goes into the wild, reckless places of our lives to bring us back to safety with Him. He leads us into a secure place in His presence that we can call ‘Home’. Rather than be swamped in the wilderness, we can reach out for the Lord’s hand of help. Lean heavily upon your beloved. See yourself reaching out and surrendering to the One who will faithfully and relentlessly lead you home. Assuredly, Luke 19:10 says “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.”
Stand in the story. Can you affirm that that is you coming up from the wilderness leaning upon your beloved? Let Christ lift your load and carry your burdens as you step from the suffocating darkness of the wilderness into the open, freeing spaces of home with Him.
