Awakening Spirit

“Awake, O north! Come, O south! Breathe my garden!” The Bride needs to awaken the wind, which appears to be sleeping, not getting to the job of wafting out fragrance. What happens when the Wind gets going?

Israel is carried on eagle’s wings from Egypt (Deuteronomy 32:11). Deborah composes songs (Judges 5:12; cf. Psalm 57:8; 108:2). Warriors fight (2 Samuel 23:18; 1 Chronicles 11:11, 20). Emperors proclaim liberty to captives (Ezra 1:1). Love comes into the garden (Song of Songs 2:7; 3:5; then 4:16).

A lot happens when the Spirit stirs from His slumber. But it takes the Bride’s call to wake Him.
