Let Jesus Embrace You With Both Hands

13Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. . .
16Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. (Proverbs 3: 13, 16)
Yet Jesus, our Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9: 6) wants to hold us with both hands.
Jesus Christ is our Wisdom (1 Corinthians 1: 30)
In the Song of Solomon, the "Beloved" shares this intimate moment:
"His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me." (Songs 2: 6)
Later in "Song of Solomon", the Beloved says:
"His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me." (Songs 8: 3)

In the original Hebrew, both verses are the same.

As we keep seeing more of Jesus, His left hand of riches and honor will support our head, and we can receive the full of embrace of His life around us through His right hand.

When Solomon prayed for wisdom, the LORD granted his request, and more:

"13And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 14And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days." (1 Kings 3: 13-14)

While Solomon did not walk in the LORD's statutes, as David had, we have the assurance of walking in righteousness because Jesus is not just our wisdom, but also our righteousness, along with our redemption and sanctification (1 Corinthians 1: 30)

Because the Holy Spirit lives in us, God has placed His laws in our hearts and minds, and He is our God, and He teaches us to know Him, all because of the New Covenant cut through Jesus' blood at the Cross (Colossians 2: 13-15; Hebrews 8: 10-12).

We can rest in Christ, who has made us accepted in the Beloved (Ephesians 1: 6), and we are in Christ, let us allow Him to embrace us fully with His left hand of riches and right hand of long life.
