Song of Solomon 2:4 KJV
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love”
Satan is the father of lies. The Bible declares he was a liar from the beginning. He comes with all subtlety. Sometimes gentle, sometimes rampant but always sowing seeds of doubt. His modus operandi? He masquerades – appearing to be one thing to entrap us, but all he is, is a liar. His Operation command centre- he controls by fear – false – evidence – appearing – real. His sole purpose is to kill, steal & destroy us. God places something over us. He drapes us in it, dropping, sopping, saturating us in it. It is His banner of love. Yes Jesus loves us. There is no other way to tell you. He loves us more than the most passionate love a person could have for another. More than a Parent’s love for their child; Isaiah 49:15 states: “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” God will never forget us because of the love & mercy He has for us.
Solomon, the wisest man to walk the Earth, spoke of Gods love as a woman. He loves us so much that despite our sins, He came & dwelt amongst us and died on the cross to have our sins removed. I want to remind each one of us that we are precious to God. “We are the apple of His eye” as Zechariah 2:8 encourages us “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.” He will defend us because His Word has honour & it is imputed unto Him that He cannot lie.
I want to reach out to those who feel rejected or broken this morning, lonely, even suicidal. God loves you. He will help you & deliver you. Open your heart & minds to Him, He sees you & He will send help to you. Don’t believe the enemy’s lie, you are not alone & you are not forgotten. You maybe a Christian & feel you should not be thinking this way, making it harder for you to reach out to God but He really does understand. He knows us & He knew a day like this would come, indeed, He knew us before we were formed in our mother’s wombs. Come, Jesus has His arms open waiting to embrace us. Don’t stay in the low place that suppresses you, tells you you’re forgotten or rejected & don’t stay silent. Call Him “Father it’s me standing in the need of You” that’s all the pray we need & He will draw us closer. This might be too hard for us to deal with but nothing is to hard for Jesus, He wants to carry our load.
#Share this verse with all you meet today, maybe you know Jesus maybe you don’t but the message is the same, you might be at the brink of it all but don’t believe or listen to, the lies of the enemy, Jesus loves YOU??
