Developing Intimacy

Posted on 23 May, 2016 by David Stanfield

The more you develop your intimacy with the Lord, the more clearly you will hear His quiet whispered instructions. This applies to all areas of your life and will flow over into worship, warfare and ministry with banners.

The banners are not much in themselves. It is only as they are activated in accordance with the Lord’s will that they become powerful weapons for worship, warfare and ministry.

Develop your intimacy with God - learn to discern His voice. You will need to know when it is the Lord speaking, when it might be your own thoughts, when it might be the influence of others and even when it might be the enemy trying to speak to you.

The more you know people and spend time with them, the more you recognise their voices and understand their intentions. It is the same with the Lord. When there are a lot of voices speaking to you and some of them seem contradictory, push back into your intimacy with the Lord and listen to Him. Then rest with what He is saying.

Your life is a testimony; you will be known by your fruit. Are you loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled? Develop the fruit of the Spirit in your life and character. Those around you, including the leaders in the spheres in which you move, will notice. Intimacy with the Lord is crucial for effective banner use.

Jeremiah 4:5,6
Announce in Judah and proclaim in Jerusalem and say: 'Sound the trumpet throughout the land!' Cry aloud and say: 'Gather together! Let us flee to the fortified cities!' Raise the signal to go to Zion! Flee for safety without delay! For I am bringing disaster from the north, even terrible destruction.

Song of Solomon 2:4
He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.

'Their stronghold will fall because of terror; at sight of the battle standard their commanders will panic,' declares the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
