Apostle Grace Lubega
Song of Solomon 1:4 (KJV): Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.
Solomon speaks of an intimate relationship between the King and His love, which represents the relationship between Christ and each one of us, His bride the Church.
He says, “Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers.”
This starts with an invitation from God Almighty; it is He who draws us.
You can never have a proper relationship with God without understanding that it is He who invites you into His chambers rather than you inviting yourself.
God wants you to relate with Him based on your response to His invitation.
Go into the presence of God with the knowledge that He invited you and eagerly awaits to spend time with you.
Have the constant expectation that with this open invitation, God delights in communing with you.
This is what makes prayer A LOVE AFFAIR! Hallelujah!

PRAYER: My loving father, thank you for the open invitation into your courts. Boldly, I come to the throne of grace knowing that you are my audience and I have your attention. I delight in basking in your presence because of the things you make me feel. Thank you for your love, for the things you reveal and for the constant and absolute pleasure of simply being with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
