You are identified by Jesus love for you, and His banner over you is love. In the Old Testament banners were used to identify clans, they were also raised to announce something significant was going to happen, and raised in war and in victory. You belong to Him, Love sent Jesus to the cross, Love wages war on our enemies, Love has won the final battle, Love returns for us (the Bride). You are completely covered by love, and wooed to know this One in the safest of chambers.
Though this has been one of my long time favorite verses that I’ve shared often, it still remains the place of my longing. The wounding my heart feels from His love is piercing, yet sweet. My writing has been less, and though I want to encourage all of you – this is all I have for now, but it’s everything; Hear His heartbeat, stay close to His heart. I’ve been undone here in this place for weeks. In His love, He makes all things complete. Taste and see, He is good.
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love [for love waved as a protecting and comforting banner over my head when I was near him].”
Song of Solomon 2:4 AMPC
