Day 6 – He is Jehovah Nissi, the Lord Our Banner

The Lord is a reigning banner over us all the time. The Hebrew for “banner” comes from the root word “to be high” or “raised.” This was the name given to the altar that Moses erected to commemorate the defeat of the Amalekites at Rephidim (Exodus 17:8-15). He goes before us and behind us to give us the victory in all circumstances of life. Even in the midst of the battle, the banner of the Lord is raised over us. Psalm 23:5 says, “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” Who is the God who prepares a table of celebration in the presence of the enemy? When the enemy shall come in like a flood, then shall the Lord hold up a banner before him. The victory in all of life is the Lord’s.

The Lord is a Pillar of Fire behind you, too hot for the Egyptians and and enemies of your progress, He is a Pilar of cloud before you, giving you directions and indications on changing circumstances in your environment. He surrounds you and your family like the mountain surrounds Jerusalem.

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it, The LORD is my banner: Exodus 17:15

May you have a blessed day ahead in His Presence

Shalom ~WDI~
