Into the King’s Chambers depicts His beloved reverently ascending into the King’s lair as His glory swirls above Him like a crown.
- Song of Solomon 4:1a, 7, 9 (ESV) Behold, you are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful! …You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.
With reverential awe, she ascends. Drawing ever closer to Him and the glory surrounding Him. She approaches His chambers in holy fear, overtaken by His love and the intimacy of His desire. This art piece represents a petition to be awakened to greater intimacy with Him. A seal over our hearts, being kept for Him alone. The bride is sleeping until the time of her awakening, and it is time for that awakening – time to ascend. Only the passion of our intimacy with Him will carry us through the days ahead of us. We must be awakened and set ablaze – His jealousy burning in us, the very flame of the Lord. His passion for souls, His river of love flowing through us.
A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Let Me Cover You with My Love.”
Song of Solomon 2:4 (VOICE) He placed me at his banquet table, for everyone to see that his banner over me declares his love.
Beloved, let Me cover you with My love. Let it surround you like a thick blanket – even a shield. Behold the glorious feast for your senses that love with Me brings. Allow Me to overtake you in the sweetest of ways, for you are My precious one and My heart’s desire.
May everyone see you cloaked in My love. May they look at you and from your very radiance know that you are one who is loved deeply and is secure in that love. In that sweet place of safety, what can harm you? For I AM there, and I will never leave you. So stay under My covering and rest in My love.
A word called “Follow the Beat of My Heart” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
1 John 4:18 (TPT) Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts. Whoever walks constantly afraid of punishment has not reached love’s perfection.
Beloved, be led by the sound of the beat of My heart. Resist the call of the world, which seeks to guide you through fear, guilt, and shame. You are My delight, and I created you for relationship with Me. Knowing Me is about so much more than a list of do’s and don’ts. It’s about more than work, projects, deadlines, and commissions.
Although I have placed purpose within you, your work in this world is still an avenue for your personal connection with Me. I have ordained that each day and every experience would provide you with opportunities to explore the depth of My heart. When you give in to the fear that you are performing wrong or disappointing Me, it creates unnecessary walls of separation between us. Remember: I desire to work with you, in you, and through you. Release the desire to determine what this journey must look like, for My plans for you cannot remain in the box of your understanding. Allow Me to lead and let us move together, always together, beloved.
Therefore, cease from striving and worrying. Fear not, for you do not have to go it alone. Take My hand, and let me lead you in this wondrous dance called life. Lay your head upon My chest, bask in the songs I’m singing over you, and let your feet be moved by their melody. Allow My Presence to intertwine with every area of your life. As you yield to My constant leading, joy, peace, hope will overflow.
Psalm 46:10 (NASB) “Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Kisses of My Mouth.”
Song of Solomon 2:4 (AMP) “He has brought me to his banqueting place, And his banner over me is love [waving overhead to protect and comfort me].
I cover you with My love – shielding and cocooning you. Protecting, encouraging, nurturing, and restoring you with My presence and the fervency of My devotion. I nourish you with the sweetest of kisses from My mouth. Pause, beloved, and feel My love overtake you. Nothing have I withheld from you. The depths of My heart for you are incalculable so do not try to measure it, simply receive it as the gift it is. Let it be sustenance to your weary soul.
Watch for My kisses from heaven as I move in your life and the world around you. I AM leaving love notes for you everywhere, simply pay attention and find them. Notice even the most minute details I have aligned to demonstrate My love for you: whether it be in the rainbows and flowers that bring a smile, or the butterfly in a moment you needed to be reminded of beauty; the rainy nights that sooth your soul, or the vibrant sunshine that warms your heart – I AM here and I AM moving. I AM moving all around you, see Me. My heart is on display.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Be Swept Away in a Romance with Me.”
Psalm 45:11 (VOICE) Because the king yearns for your beauty, humble yourself before him, for he is now your lord.
Beloved, no words could begin to express the depth of My love. I yearn for you with a fervor that cannot be quenched. If you hunger and thirst for Me, it does not leave Me simply lavishing in your love. Rather that passion of feeling might begin to match the intensity of Mine.
Refuse to hold back. Refuse to guard your heart with Me. Glory in the fullness of a love affair with Me. Then watch as it bears fruit – both the loving and the receiving of love acting as powerful life- and atmosphere-changers. So be swept away in a romance with Me.
Song of Solomon 8:6-7 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame. No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Trust Me Wholeheartedly and Obey.”
2 John 1:6 (VOICE) Love is defined by our obedience to His commands. This is the same command you have known about from the very beginning; you must live by it.
Beloved, if you say you love Me, but disregard My Word, your actions prove false your professions of love. If you wrote detailed instructions for a loved one, gave it to them and they set it aside and never read it, or read it and ignored your instructions favoring their own misguided decisions – would that demonstrate reciprocated love to you? Indeed not.
For when we truly love someone, we listen to them. We respect their authority. We heed their counsel. So beloved, what does your response to My Word say about your feelings for Me? Do you follow My instructions only when you agree with them or have deemed them to make sense? Or do you trust Me enough to relinquish control and obey in faith – trusting if I’ve given instruction, there must be good cause, even if you are unaware of it.
Demonstrate your love for Me by your obedience. You are welcome to ask questions, but choose yield to Me even if I do not to answer, trusting that even in My lack of response, I have good cause. Refuse to be derailed or allow pride or rebellion to hinder your path. Trust Me wholeheartedly and obey.
A final Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Unquenchable Passion.”
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out…
Beloved, burn with a passion that refuses to be quenched. No trial or perceived lack can cause you to doubt the intensity of your feelings for Me. The actions of others cannot shift your gaze, but rather your wholehearted love is steadfast and sure.
Be ardent, beloved. Singleminded and unwavering in your affection. Then allow your actions to flow from this foundation of love, for when you love Me to a point of near obsession, you cannot hate or resent My creation. Mirroring My heart of grace and compassion becomes easier because your heart is fixed on Me.
In the same way, your work will flow from a heart of love rather than obligation. You’ll know you have no need to earn My affection because it is already most assuredly yours. Then the joy of partnering with Me truly is a joy and not a burden. So flow from a place of love and burn with unquenchable passion for Me.
Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.
The silk hidden in this image is Flawless. The colors in it are gray representing dove’s eyes, black representing the eye of the Lord, and cranberry representing having no flaw. This reminds the beloved how she may ascend and how her King sees her – through the Blood, thus purified and overwhelmingly beautiful.
Father, may we allow ourselves to begin to comprehend how You see us through the Blood. May we approach You with holy fear AND boldness, holding nothing back – simply presenting ourselves as an offering. May we truly be overtaken by Your love – though we are incapable of fully understanding the depths of it, may we at least begin to understand that we might dare to believe who we are to You and who You’ve called us to be.
