HIS BANNER OVER ME IS LOVE
Going to church has a way of reinforcing our feeling that God loves us. The praise and worship that takes you to His throne and you see yourself among the four and twenty elders, the ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands of angels; the choir ministration that often seems specially chosen for you; the sermon that corrects, strengthens and uplifts you; indeed every part of service gives you the feeling of being wrapped up in God’s loving arms.
Of course, you need to be in a living church where the true Gospel is preached and the ministers rely on the Holy Spirit, rather than on human knowledge and gimmicks, for this to happen.

Thankfully, what happens to you when you worship under the flow of Holy Ghost anointing doesn’t end with the service. It stays with you: the divine coverage that brings supernatural protection, exemption, good health and provision. The whole atmosphere of His love and goodness persists ’cause in Him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
A friend once said that going to church is enough warfare against the devil when you are under heavy attack. Refusing to give up and just showing up, no matter how battered you are, gives the enemy pause ’cause without your lifting a finger, there’s enough power when the saints come together to discomfit the powers of darkness and put them to flight.

And today, we had communion. It reminded me of one of my favourite scriptures, Song of Solomon 2:4:
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.” – (KJV)
I learnt a song way back where it was paraphrased and I go with that every time.
“He’s brought me into His banqueting hall, and His banner over me is love.”

The body and the blood of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, which we partake of in the communion gives us His life and reminds us of the supreme price of love He paid for us: His death in our place on the cross of Calvary that we might live and be reconciled with His Father (Matthew 26:26-28; John 6:51,53-56).
That’s where I’m coming from. I’ve been to the banqueting hall of my Lord and HIS BANNER OVER ME IS LOVE!
