“The God who turns the ordinary into EXTRAORDINARY, the Month of December and the Expiration Date on your troubles!”
I saw “December” written on a milk bottle as an expiration date, and my heart leapt for joy. OK, yes, this sounds crazy, I know! (LOL! I thought so too! 😃)
But this is how the Holy Spirit speaks to us many times, through ordinary things. He makes the ordinary EXTRAORDINARY. Amen?
It’s no accident it was MILK. Milk refers to spiritual blessings in the Bible over 50 times. 50 is the number of Jubilee.
Milk stands for God’s Words and Promises. And I heard this, “There is an EXPIRATION DATE on your troubles.
December will be a month of ‘turn-arounds’. I don’t know what things, but some things are gonna turn around for you, Child of God!
“Beloved. I AM the God of the Turn Around. Keep standing in faith, My Child, and don’t give up on My promises.
I AM He who turns the ordinary into extraordinary I AM still the Mender of Broken Hearts. I AM still the Supplier of all your needs.
I AM the Finder of the Lost and the One who puts your pieces back together and makes you WHOLE! I AM your God who turns your confusion into PEACE and your chaos into BLESSING.
Your story is not over. Oh No, My Child, far from it. I AM the God of the Suddenlies. I AM not a man that I would lie.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. My understanding is unsearchable.
I AM He who gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might I increase strength. I have come into My garden, My Bride, I suffered so that you could have victory.
I drank the cup of wrath so that you could drink the cup of Wine and Milk. Oh My Beloved. Come and drink freely from the Cup of Blessing.
What the enemy means for evil I AM turning around for good. I make all things NEW. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but I deliver you from them ALL.
I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world!
Let the weak say,”I am strong!” I AM turning your ordinary into EXTRAORDINARY! I have saved the BEST for last!”
EXTRAORDINARY : Going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary; extraordinary powers; exceptional to a very marked extent.
“I have come to My garden, My sister, My Bride; I have gathered My myrrh with My spice. I have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk my wine with My MILK . Eat, O friends, and drink; drink freely, O Beloved,” Song of Solomon 5:1.
“And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with MILK and honey,” Exodus 3:8 KJV.
‘Milk and Honey’ : a metaphor meaning all good things. The phrase ‘flowing with milk and honey’ is understood to be descriptive of the land’s richness; hence, its current use to express the abundance of prosperity and pure enjoyment.
Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary:
Song of Solomon : CHAPTER 5 So 5:1-16.
1. Answer to her prayer (Isa 65:24; Re 3:20). I am come — already (So 4:16); “come” (Ge 28:16).
Sister … spouse — As Adam’s was created of his flesh, out of his opened side, there being none on earth on a level with him, so the BRIDE out of the pierced Saviour (Eph 5:30-32).
2.Have gathered … myrrh — His course was already complete; the myrrh, &c. (Mt 2:11; 26:7-12; Joh 19:39), emblems of the indwelling of the anointing Holy Ghost, were already gathered. Spice—literally, “balsam.”
3.Have eaten—answering to her “eat” (So 4:16).
Honeycomb—distinguished here from liquid “honey” dropping from trees. The last supper, here set forth, is one of espousal, a pledge of the future marriage (So 8:14; Re 19:9). Feasts often took place in gardens. In the absence of sugar, then unknown, honey was more widely used than with us. His eating honey with MILK indicates His true, yet spotless, human nature from infancy (Isa 7:15); and after His resurrection (Lu 24:42).
4.My WINE — (Joh 18:11) — a cup of wrath to Him, of mercy to us, whereby God’s Word and promises become to us “MILK” (Ps 19:10; 1Pe 2:2). “My” answers to “His” (So 4:16). The myrrh (emblem, by its bitterness, of repentance), honey, MILK (incipient faith), wine (strong faith), in reference to believers, imply that He accepts all their graces, however various in degree.
5. EAT — He desires to make us partakers in His joy (Isa 55:1, 2; Joh 6:53-57; 1Jo 1:3).
6. DRINK abundantly — so as to be filled (Eph 5:18; as Hag 1:6).
“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted; He saves the contrite in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him from them all,” Psalm 34:18-19.
“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!” John 16:33.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31.
