Song of Solomon 5:2 – I sleep, but my heart is awake; It is the voice of my beloved! He knocks, saying, “Open for me, my sister, my love, My dove, my perfect one; For my head is covered with dew, My locks with the drops of the night.”
When the Holy Spirit wants have fellowship with us, He is calling us by knocking our door. Opening our door is not all about salvation but it is to allow Him to have a conversation with us. His willing and compassionate voice always resonates in our hearts when we open the door for Him. It is like somebody calling you over the phone; your heart will get a ring or hear the knock when He wants to talk to you. I sleep but my heart is awake. We have to keep our heart always awake for the Spirit of Christ. Laziness of our heart will deny His fellowship. If we deny His fellowship, how can we receive the guidance from Him? If we could not hear His voice when our soul is at rest, how can we hear His voice during the stormy season? We will be a wandering ship without no guide and no direction and will be expecting the word of God from somebody else like King Saul did (I Sam 28:15). If this happens in our life, we are heading for a severe collision. How much the devil made us lazy and or tired; he is paralyzing our heart with food, drink, TV, worldly entertainment and much more. If we took his bait, then we are missing something that is wonderful only the children of the living and loving God, can experience. How much more we are at loss if we lose this opportunity to have a lively conversation with the Holy Spirit. The testimony of the Father about His Son is in Luke 9:35 “This is My beloved Son.Hear Him!” Are we awake in our heart to hear Him, could we shed out our laziness and be always ready to hear Him?
