Quiet Hour - Day 194

Thoughts for the Quiet Hour - July 13

Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. —Song of Solomon 4:16

There are two winds mentioned in this beautiful prayer. God may send either or both, as seemeth Him good. He may send the north wind of conviction, to bring us to repentance, or He may send the south wind of love, to melt us into gratitude and holy joy. If we often require the sharp blasts of trial to develop our graces, do we not also need the warm south breezes of His mercy? Do we not need the new sense of Christ’s presence in our hearts and the joys of the Holy Ghost? Do we not need to be melted, yes, to be overpowered by the love of Jesus? —Theodore Cuyler
