Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all (! Chronicles 29:11).

A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me.” (Song of Solomon 1:13)
Solomon was probably speaking of human lovers. However, many Bible students see a double reference here. They see Solomon’s words as a type of Jesus. Myrrh was connected with sacrifice. It was a precious perfume. A bundle of myrrh suggests that Jesus is more than enough. There is in Him enough for all my needs. He is not simply a twig. He is a bundle. Whatever we need, Jesus can supply if we trust Him. In the Scriptures, we see many roles played by Jesus. He is a prophet, priest, king, husband, friend, shepherd, the light of the world, Savior, etc. He is a bundle of myrrh able to meet all our needs.
Our greatest need is to have our sins forgiven so that we might be fit for heaven. Jesus has abundantly supplied that need when He bore our judgment at Calvary. However, we have other lesser needs as well. We need to know He cares when we are sick. We need His presence when others have hurt us. When money is short, we need Him to provide for our needs. Whatever our situation, Jesus is “a bundle of myrrh,” an inexhaustible bundle. Trust Him as your Savior and trust Him with every need.
Lord Jesus, I thank you that we cannot exhaust Your grace and goodness. I thank You for always being there. You are indeed a bundle of myrrh. Help me to be a bundle of faith. Amen.
