Discussion for Song of Solomon 8:10

  • William Jurie on Song of Solomon 8:10
    "I am a wall, " He is our protector in times when the storms of this world try to sweep us away. "and my breasts like towers " When Jesus find us He became a tower where we hide ourselves and feed us with His Word like a mother feeding her baby no matter if the place where she is the wind is blowing she will turn her back to the side of the wind whilst feeding her baby. "then was I in his eyes as one that found favour. " Whenever a mother breastfeeds her child her eyes will be upon the baby, in the same way when we look up to our Lord each day we realize than we have found favour from God to save us with His precious blood that was spilled on the cross so that we may be saved. His eyes reflects the favour we received from Him.
