God's Banner

Under the Banner of Love

“He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love” (Song of Solomon 2:4).

Child, My banner over you is love. Banners are proclamations, bold statements of fact displayed over people, places, and things. They are My indisputable declarations meant for all to see. There is security under My immovable banner for I change not (Hebrews 13:8). I make this declaration over you for the entire world to see. Knowing you are so loved will be irresistible to the unloved. I will accomplish a two-fold purpose: loving you and drawing others. It is My statement to all the powers that be. I erect this permanent, immovable banner over you, over your life, proclaiming My love for you. While it is immovable, anchored in the blood of My Son, it responds with a fluid movement to the Wind of the Spirit sent to blow across your heart and life. My banner of love responds in a dance-like movement, creating a unique piece of music by which to orchestrate your life.

I am sending waves of movement over you even now, releasing in this day a fresh, exhilarating awareness of My love for you. I am yours and you are Mine, and My banner over you is love. I will blow across the strings of your heart, creating a beautiful melody: a song of all songs.

Arise, My beloved, and move freely in the breeze of My presence (Acts 17:28). I will never let you go nor shall I ever remove My banner of love. Rest, love, worship, sing, dance, mourn, rejoice, and pray from this secure place, knowing I will always respond with a declaration of love. The wind of My Spirit is moving, rustling, blowing, whispering many love songs in this place. You are My beloved, and My desire is for you.

I am Yours, and You are mine, and my heart is filled with love for You today. Help me to be ever mindful of Your declarations over me. Forgive me for not resting in this place of security. Help me to remember that everything I do is done under the auspice of Your unchanging, never failing love. I give my heart to the tender songs of love You create in me. I raise the banner of our relationship, anchored in Jesus for all to see. I will proclaim Your love to others as it has been proclaimed to me. My whole desire is for you. My deepest longing is to love the way You love. Transform me in this safe place. I love You, Father, and I rest in Your love today. Amen.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus
