Song of Solomon 2:15 (KJV)
Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
God wants to protect your relationship with Him. Your relationship with the Lord should grow to become more passionate and more intense. The enemy tries to disturb and even steal the fondness between you and the Lord. I want you to say, "Swiper NO Swiping!"
God is very romantic. He calls the body of Christ his bride. God's love is tender for his people. God wants us to be aware of these swipers (foxes, demonic spirits, lies) in our lives. Just like a fox the enemy infiltrates into the land and begins invasion. The work of the enemy increases when there is a dark moment. That's when he crawls out of the hidden place, spoils the fruits, and steals what you got before you realized you had it.
When you cannot see well (not focused)
When something is scary to you (distrust in God)
You feel alone (lack of faith in God, feeling like an orphan)
When you're sleeping and not paying attention (eyes closed to truth)
When you're not alert (distracted)
When you trip over things that you forgot were there (hidden and past sins)
It's hard to know what's real and the imagination (confused)
Know your stalker's whereabouts so that you are not taken by surprise. To swipe anything from the land, one must be in hiding which means that they can be found!!!
Theses foxes try to spoil the fruit of love. So what do these foxes represent?
An orphan mindset
Thoughts that God won't and can't use you
Thinking that God doesn't love you
Lies that nobody will protect you
Unsatisfied with everything
False accusations against self
Lack of trust in God
Lack of faith in God
This list may seem like common thoughts that come to mind and you may not take them seriously. Let's look closer at what foxes do to land.
And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails. And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing corn of the Philistines, and burnt up both the shocks, and also the standing corn, with the vineyards and olives. Judges 15:4-5 (KJV)
Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken? Ezekiel 13:3-7 (KJV)
You have a responsibility to sustain good agricultural methods in the garden that you have with the Lord. You must cultivate your relationship with Him.
Although foxes in the natural are cute, we can review their nature to understand why God uses them to symbolize an attack from the enemy.
Nature of the Fox
Female foxes are called vixens
Males are called dogs
They are nocturnal
They stalk their prey
They dig other animals out of their homes (homewrecker to break up families)
Their appetite adapts according to what's available in their location
They're intelligent and can see very well
They're known for stealing anything that interests them
Do you see why God uses symbolism?
What's my point?
God is doing His part to protect your relationship with Him but you too have a part to play. It's your responsibility to believe the truth and reject lies. Cultivate your relationship with the Father and create a garden of beauty. When you see a fox, remove it!
Prayer for Loveliness in the Garden:
Lord, I repent for believing lies about you and myself. I know that you are beautiful and your intentions towards me are always good. I bind up the foxes that lay and wait to spoil the fruit of our love. Lord, you are so special to me and I want to work with you for a more intimate relationship. Please reveal everything that's been in the way and remove it with me please. I adore you Jesus. I'm yours now and forever. May our garden be beautiful, full and plenteous. I open up my heart right now to receive revelations of your amazing love for me. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Know your stalker's whereabouts so that you are not taken by surprise. To swipe anything from the land, one must be in hiding which means that they can be found!!! Pray for discernment for you to know where the culprit lies and waits for your retreat.
