The King hath brought me into His chambers” Song of Solomon 1:4
Happy Wednesday by Parris Bailey
In this scripture the word chambers is plural, meaning the revelations of God are inexhaustible. The closer we get to God, it is as if the Holy Spirit is beckoning us to press into the scripture- “Eye hath not seen nor ears heard, neither entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” There is a place within our beings; where we meet Him alone in communion, prayer, repentance and fellowship. It is in this secret closet of prayer and communion, that we find grace to go through the difficult journeys of life.
Another chamber becomes the unbroken communion of fellowship with Him. We can learn to hide in the secret place of the Almighty from the winds of strife, and waves of unbelief.
What a privilege to enter his His chambers! Esther was set apart for months in preparation for the moment to be with the King. When we are in this precious place in the chamber, we are called to be a chambermaid, we are brides yet servants. A chambermaid is one that doesn’t take her eyes off the master. Jesus even said, I only do what my Father is doing. Close fellowship brings surrender, it happens in the secret place.
A chamber is a place of rest and refreshment. When the world is crowding in upon us, we can rest is his arms and lean upon His bosom. Heb. 10:19 “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh. There is a new way that he extends to us through the chamber of his blood, he beckons us to step in and taste this new life in the chamber.
Matthew 6:6 “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” He is a rewarder to them that diligently seek Him, where, pray tell, do we seek Him? In our prayer closets or the chambers of our heart. We can find Him in our prayer closets everywhere and everyplace. Whether it be riding in our cars, singing at the top of our lungs to worship music, soaking in a hot tub,or praying in the Holy Ghost. And my favorite suggestion is when your doing the thing you enjoy the most, look up and enter into HIS PRESENCE! Yes, we should pray as we are quiet before him and close our doors to the distractions and voices of this world but more than anything, He bids us to sup at His table in His holy chamber.
I pray you have felt His Kisses, let Him draw you into a deeper place, a place of rest, enjoyment and refreshment in the Holy Ghost. You will not only never be the same, but you won’t stay the same!
