"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 Amplified Bible
I really enjoy people visiting me in my home, be it an unexpected caller or a pre-arranged event. I love deciding what food I am going to prepare, setting the table, serving the food and enjoying the craic. I also love to be invited to other people’s homes and getting to know them better over food and laughter.
Countless times in Scripture food is a focus for God’s blessing from the provision of manna in the desert to Jesus sharing His last meal with His closest friends.
Father God is inviting you, today, to share blessing and fellowship with Him, and not just a hastily thrown together snack using leftovers – but a banquet. Banquets are lavish, generous, extravagant events that give the host a chance to exhibit their skill with the finest ingredients. Today God is generous in His love towards you and has invited you to a banquet – not of food but of love, blessing and prosperity.
Enjoy God’s banner of love being flown over you this morning and throughout the day.
