SOS 5:2 – “I was asleep but my heart was awake.
A voice! My beloved was knocking:
Open to me, my sister, my darling,
My dove, my perfect one!
For my head is drenched with dew,
My locks with the dew drops of the night.”
This verse is a picture of Christ, dripping with the dew, asking for entrance into our chamber. What an incredible picture of the Lord coming to us in the night seasons of our life, asking for entrance into our heart. He is literally dripping with the dew of the Holy Spirit. After all, He is the anointed One. There is no longer a need to stay isolated, dealing with loneliness and sadness of heart. He comes near to us asking for entrance to the secret parts of our lives. We too can be satiated or saturated with this heavenly dew. Here is how F. E. Marsh describes this verse.
“Oh! if we were fully alive to the attractive power, the charm, the beauty of the person of Christ, -if He dwelt in our heart by faith,-we should be so enraptured with Him that everything else but Himself would lose its attractiveness for and asks for entrance to the innermost parts of our lives. And we should be so full of Christ that we should have no time, but for Him; no voice, but to speak of Him; no eyes, but to look to Him; no hands, but to serve Him; no feet, but to walk in Him; no mind, but to think of Him. Thus we should indeed be filled-satiated-with the Spirit, for the proof that we are filled with the Spirit is as Christ is seen in our life. May He of whom we have been thinking draw our hearts closer to our Beloved.”
Recently in a Sunday night service I felt a strong impression to pray for people dealing with loneliness. Just as in today’s verse, nighttime can be a terribly lonely place. In this verse we see that loneliness is really our choice. The Lord Himself is knocking on our door, asking for entrance into our world. Open the door to your world and your life will be filled with the fragrance of His presence. You don’t have to be alone any longer. The Lord will become your companion and will saturate your life with His heavenly presence. Open the door to the Lord, He is drenched with the dew of the Spirit and is longing to cover you with His love.
