    1. Verses 1 to 3
    These verses tell us where to find Jesus Christ, the Messiah.My beloved has gone in his garden to gather lillies.And my beloved feeds among the lillies.

    Who are the lillies?

    The lillies are those who follow the Word of God.
    The lillies are those who repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ, the Messiah as their Saviour.
    The lillies are those who toil and suffer to spread the Word of God.
    The lillies are those who hold dearly to the Word of God and never look back.
    The lillies are those who walk in the Light and Truth of God.

    Verse 3 tells us to cultivate a very close relationship with Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
    God loves us to the extreme so we should worship The All Mighty God alone and follow the Word of God, Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

    2. Verses 4 to 7 give us a picture of the beauty and perfection of the Word of God.In fact there are no sufficient or appropriate words in any language on earth to correctly describe the magnificence, mystery,perfection,grace,beauty,
    kindness,love,forgiveness and mercy to be found in the Word of God.

    3.Verses 8 and 9
    Verse 8 talks of queens, concubines and virgins.
    The significance of this verse is that in the world there are many doctrines,literature,cults,
    religions,movies,cultures and traditions, academic books,novels,cartoons, desires and worldly persuits but none of these compare to the Word of God.
    Although these may appeal to some individuals the verses tells us that a true believer should not be detracted by these.These should not influence your life in Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

    Verse 9 points to the fact that the Word of God is very very important for the continued existence of mankind.We cannot survive without it.
    It cannot be compared to anything in this world.
    It does not have a substitute and without the Word of God we are all reduced to savages, without mercy or compassion and we cannot survive for long on earth in this level of darkness.
    The only reason we are still alive today is Word of God which continuously fights the dark forces,the cabal from causing total domination and destruction of this world.
    The dark forces have the means to do it but God All Mighty will never allow them to have their way.

    4.Verse 10 shows us the effect of the Word of God in our lives.
    It brings a new dawn in our life like in the morning.
    It brings clarity and purpose in our lives like the moon.
    It brings light and guidance like the sun.
    It brings security and protection under the blood of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

    5.Verses 11 to 13 is a warning to the true believers against getting bogged down with worldly persuits and pleasures.

    You should not be a captive to worldly persuits and pleasures.You should run away from these desires and temptations as demonstrated in
    verse 12.
    You should run away from sin with the speed of the chariots of Amminadib.

    Verse 13 tells us not to fall prey to situations which allow us to fall in the captivity of sin.
    When temptation of sin calls out loudly to you remain steadfast and ask God for guidance that you may find peace and security in Jesus Christ,the Messiah.You should run away from sin and avoid situations or activities which may cause you to sin.
    If you are strong enough you can face, the situations which might put you into sin, head on and overcome the obstacles.

    Only God can give us the TRUTH and POWER to conguer.

    Peace and Love from God be upon us all.
