Song 2:1, "I am the rose of Sharon, And the lily of the valleys. THE BELOVED"

Bible compares the beauty of the beloved with beautiful flowers like rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys. The next verse tells us, "Like a lily among thorns, So is my love among the daughters." Many of the beautiful flowers grow among thorns. Thorns are as ugly and painful in contrast to the beauty and blessedness of a flower. No matter how terrible it may appear, still at times it is a necessity for our protection.

Many of us go through terrible trials in our day today lives and of course some times it is unbearable. Very often we feel, "why we should go through all these terrible things?" But if you are a child of God, God will do everything to protect you from the enemy. He will put a hedge of thorns around you so that you could be protected from evil, so that enemy may not pluck you out of the hands of God.

Once I heard that to keep live Catfish active and healthy they keep a big fish in the tank so that catfish may not take rest but when the big fish chases it, it runs for her life all the time and stays fresh and healthy. Yes, Sometimes God will deliberately put you in a difficult place not to harm you but to make you more active and alert. Those thorns cannot prick you nor could those chasings swallow you. Because God will be with you and He will protect you. Bible says in Isa 43:2-3, When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior..."

Those thorns and those chasing are meant to beautify you more and more and to make you a sweet smelling fragrance just like Jesus' beauty and Jesus' aroma. God allowed the Israelites to go through troubles as we read in Deu 8:3, "So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD." Psalmist also admits that though God allowed these types of troubles yet He delivered them and brought them into a wonderful place as we read in Psa 66:10-12, "For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the net; You laid affliction on our backs. You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment."

Today you may be going through terrible trials and problems. You may be facing unbearable pain in your life. But if you are a child of God, you need not to worry about anything. Give your worries and troubles in the hands of God. He will take care of you. If you are not a child of God, come to Jesus and give your life to Jesus. Accept Him as your Lord and Savior and He will wipe away your tears.

Rose of Sharon

By Sherly Isaac

Rose of Sharon
One morning I walked in my garden
A beautiful rose caught my attention
Wow, what a beauty, I thought!
With all glory and splendor it was swinging in air
Tiny dots of dew on it was shining as diamonds.
Breathtaking beauty and awesome glory
Among the thorns it was looking like a king.

Jesus the Rose of Sharon
Beauty, glory and majesty everything was His
But He came down leaving everything
Took the most ugly form
He had no form or comeliness,
To give us absolute beauty of our souls
He died on the cruel cross
To make us awesomely beautiful.

He was crushed to death on the cross
Shed the pure, holy and uncorrupted blood
Just to see us beautiful and blessed.
Just to see us forgiven and in His presence.
What a Savior He is.
His name is "Rose of Sharon".
His name is "Jesus" - Name above all names!
