Despite all the promises and potential for our lives, under His careful eye, becoming a ‘beautiful garden’, communion is once again broken. He knocked at the door of her life but she was asleep and did not answer. When she did answer, He had gone (5:6). It is sad when we think that we have so ‘matured in Christ’ that we can do things in our own strength and no longer need His support. There is none to compare with Him and the words of His mouth are sweeter than any other (5:16). We don’t live by ‘our bread’ alone but by every word that He speaks to us. It is a lesson we must all learn that we need Him all the more, not less, as we grow in Him.
PRAYER :- “Lord, help me always to constantly depend upon You and never do things on my own.”
