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.

Banners in the Bible

Isaiah 62:10,11
Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations. The LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your Saviour comes! See, his reward is with Him, and His recompense accompanies Him'.

John 12:30-32
Jesus said, 'This voice was for your benefit, not Mine. Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself'.

Isaiah 13:1-4
An oracle concerning Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded my holy ones; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath- those who rejoice in my triumph. Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together! The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war.
