Moses built an altar and called it The LORD is my Banner. Ex 17:15
Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love. Song 2:4
He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the ends of the earth. Here they come, swiftly and speedily! Isa 5:26
In my mind I visualize the children of Israel moving forward, even into battle. When a dignitary traveled, I imagine that they had a team of people leading the entourage with a banner stating who the person was or the country where they come from.
We walk around with a symbolic banner over us. What does it say? Who I am? How I behave? My views on certain topics of discussion? I want the banner over my life to be King Jesus, boldly stating that I belong to JESUS.
This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips. Isa 49:22
His banner over me is love! My banner is JESUS.
’Til I’m truly only Yours!
This is a song called Burn… the lyrics resonate with me about Jesus being my Banner.
