A ship stands in the harbour, tied to the dock, looking and longing to move out to the openness of the sea. The ship is filled full of various kinds of spices: cinnamon, all spice, cloves and so on. The Lord would say to you that the time of your release has come, no more delay. It is time to sail, to spread abroad the fragrances that He has loaded into your life.
Movements to the right and to the left will be easy as you sail into open waters. There are many stops that the Lord has planned for you and many lives for you to sow into, each with the speciality of the spices you carry. Many will be drawn to you as they smell the fragrance of that which you carry. Just move as He directs!
Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
Song of Solomon 7:13
The mandrakes send out their fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my beloved.
All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the strings makes you glad.
