By Bible Names of God
Song 3:2 I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
This is the bride's dream. Her Beloved is absent. She seeks Him. How perfectly natural and real this is. She had dreamed she was seeking and found not. Now she awakes and searches for Him with all her heart --- and she finds! "He satisfieth the longing soul." How we pity those who once knew the Lord but have wandered away. No rest for their restless, sin-sick souls until they find their rest in Him. His arms are always open for saint and sinner. "Come unto Me", He says, "and ye shall find rest to your souls".
Lord Jesus, how gladly we respond to Thy call and pillow our heads upon thy gentle breast. Amen.
