December 28 2016 – Let the wind blow on your garden.

In Song of Solomon chapter 4 verses 13-14 the plants within the garden that represents the woman in the romance are listed. One thing one notices is that many of them have an aroma such as henna, cinnamon, frankincense and myrrh.

It says in 2 Corinthians 2:15:

15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ….

Like the garden that represented the woman in the romance of the Song of Solomon, in a similar way we too are a garden, that is meant to have a pleasing, pleasant aroma that spreads around us.

Verse 16 of Song of Solomon chapter 4, tells us how that comes about:

16 Awake, north wind,
    and come, south wind!
Blow on my garden,
    that its fragrance may spread everywhere.

When the north and south wind blow on our garden, its fragrance is spread everywhere. Jesus likened the Holy Spirit to the wind (John 3:8). When we let the Holy Spirit blow on our lives, when we let Him influence us and yield to His activity, that’s when the pleasing aroma, the fragrance of our lives spreads to the world and those around us.

Let the wind blow on your garden.
