The maiden is now free in spirit and heart — so much so, that she can move around quickly as he wishes. A lodging will do, for her home is in him. Many times she has said, “Wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge” (Ruth 1:16). Now, he must lead her and fulfill his promise: “Every place where you set your foot will be yours” (Deuteronomy 11:24). The lands must be claimed for him because they will become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ. Like Abraham, she is content to be a pilgrim and a stranger, to sojourn in tents in the “land of promise” which she will receive as an inheritance when she reigns with him. “In the end, the meek will inherit the earth and will delight themselves in the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37:11, Amplified Version).
