Song of Songs 1:4 4 Take me away with you—let us hurry!  Let the king bring me into his chambers.  Friends  We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine.  She How right they are to adore you!  (NIV)

Oh that each one of us has times of being away with our King Jesus into His inner chamber.  Oh that we would continually rejoice and delight in Him as much as He rejoices and delights in us.  Oh that we would give Him praise more than anything or anyone else.  To be in His inner chamber we must have times of quietness and allow ourselves to become aware of His very real presence with and in us.  We start our time reading His written word then writing down what it says to us, personally.  The we spend some time confessing our sins and thanking and praising Him as it gradually become worship.  After we have spent some time worshiping, we need to be quiet and sit, kneel or lay prostrate (whatever moves us more) enjoying His presence.  Before long we will know we are in His chamber enjoying each other.  These times aren’t for sharing.  They are even more intimate than the union between husband and wife.  If you haven’t experienced this, I encourage you to take the time to learn how.  There is nothing, absolutely nothing better and more fulfilling than really experiencing the intimate love and presence of God the Father.

Constantly Aware

Ephesians 5:18 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,  (NIV)

When a person is drunk on wine (or any alcohol), we say they are under the influence.  A person drunk is no longer under their own control.  They have given their control of words and actions to the alcohol.  We are to give our control of words and actions to the Hoy Spirit.  We are to be so totally filled and aware of the Holy Spirit within us that we continually defer to the leading of the Holy Spirit for all our words and actions.  Our problem is paying attention to the Holy Spirit.  We are so convinced of our own opinions it is often hard to be willing to change.  We must learn to be in tune to the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit through continual reading, meditating and studying of the written word of God, the Holy Bible and continual 2-way conversation (prayer) with God our Father.  Let us put forth the effort to being constantly aware of the Holy Spirit.
