Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?”
(Song of Songs 8:5, NASB)

“I once learned a great lesson at a prayer meeting … As one man prayed, he closed his prayer with this unusual petition: ” And O Lord, support us! Yes, support us on every leaning side!”

Do you have any “leaning sides”? … He saw God as always walking alongside the Christian, ready to extend His mighty arm to steady the weak on “every leaning side.”

Child of my love, lean hard,
And let Me feel the pressure of your care;
I know your burden, child. I shaped it;
Balanced it in Mine Own hand; made no proportion
In its weight to your unaided strength,
For even as I laid it on, I said,
“I will be near, and while she leans on Me,
The burden will be Mine, not hers …”
