Praise and Adoration

As we continue the study of Song of Songs, symbolically we are getting the expressions of affection between Christ and the church. Solomon represents Christ and the Shulammite girl represents the church. Solomon describes the Shulammite girl by using some great images in Song of Songs 6-7; images of desire like jewels, fine wine, and luscious fruit. Also images of wonder like great cities, moon, sun, and stars.

Solomon flatters the girl in verses 8-10 by saying she is unique, blessed, and perfect. It’s rewarding to receive praise and adoration from others. It also can be rewarding to give complements. Let us all make a difference in someone’s day by encouraging others.

This day with God will be amazing because many will be blessed by you. Pray for excellence and holiness within the church and that all her enemies will be overcome. Pray for strong churches that are helping God fight off the enemy and is useful as a positive influence in bringing many souls to Christ.
