Sol 2:4 “He brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me was love."
Through out history, the customs of flags / banners are familiar all over the world.
* Whit Flag : A call for mercy or that ones approach is peaceful
* Red Flag: Signals defiance or a challenge to battle
* Yellow Flag: That there is an infectious disease something is under quarantine
* Black Flag: Usually used for race car drivers to come back in from the race
Our American Flag flown at half-mast is a sign of mourning and the lowering of the flag is a sign of respect.
There is a greater banner then all of these and that is the banner of love which is of our heavenly Father. It is love that reveals that we are His and it is by love that He reveals that He is ours. His banner of love is not reserved for special occasions, it is constant.
His banner of love still waves over us even though at times we may feel inclined to question and doubt the workings of His providence. When days are dark and it appears that everything and everyone is against us, we have the assurance that God's banner of love is still over us.
The very presence of this banner indicates that He who sees the end from the beginning will soon lead us out of the darkness and into His light.
Can we see His banner of love flying over us in our laughter or our tears, our battlefield's or our place of victory, our walk through the storms or bright sunny day's?
Those of us who march under this banner of love that God has provided will one day be escorted to His heavenly banquet hall, where we will feast on His love forever.
