Raise the banner higher and higher until you see me coming from afar. Raise the banner of my love for all the world to see. Come to me and I will give you a banner to raise up and put on display for me. You are my people, my love, and my banner over you is my love for you. I encompass you within my love each day. I surround you and guide you in my ways. I will teach you and show you my ways each day that you come to me. Don’t try and do things all on your own. Wait for my instruction and then move forward as never before. I am your guide through this lifetime and I will help you every step of the way.
Waiting on me may seem hard at first, but just spend time dwelling in my presence, not focusing on the problem, but on me. Just let yourself relax in me and I will bless you with the answers you’re seeking at just the right time. My timing is perfect, so no need to rush the process working within you. There is a season and a time for every thing I’ve designed. You are my highest creation upon this earth so why would I leave you hanging without crucial answers. Do not worry or fret about the details you’re missing. I will provide for every need that you have, for I care for you. I know the number of hairs upon your head and every molecule that is circulating within your body. Do you think I would leave you empty handed in your time of need?
Look deeper into my character that is contained within my Word. Have I ever dropped the ball on anyone? Have I ever abandoned those that I love and who love me? I am Jehovah, the God who loves you with an everlasting love. Remember who I am and who I’ve created you to be. Remember, I created this world just for you to be, to live, to breathe. All things created are here for your enjoyment and for your fulfillment. My charge to you is to fill the earth and subdue it. I have given everything to you and you are to be my stewards. So, steward it well and listen for my voice to teach you what to do and for how to do it. I will teach you and instruct your heart in everything I command you to do.
When you look full in my face and let me transform you, there will be no fear left. Fear holds you back from the things I created you to do upon this earth. Fear is your stumbling block, so don’t let it get in your way. Kick that fear out of your way and keep on coming to me for direction and understanding. I am above all things and everything that has been created by me, takes a knee to my majesty. Everything that has a name is far beneath my feet. So, do you think these things that you see blocking your way, stands a chance with me? I am your YAHWEH, I am your King, and nothing can come against you when you’re working for me! Remember who you are and your value to me. You are precious to me and nothing can remove you from the palm of my hand. Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden with the burdens this world has given to you, and I will let you rest and be at peace within my capable and loving hands. You are mine and I am yours and together, we are the same.
Isaiah 62:10-12 The Passion Translation
10 Pass through, pass through the gates, and go from old to new. Prepare a new path for the people. Build! Build up a highway for them to come to me! Remove every hindrance
and unfurl a banner for the nations! 11 See? Yahweh has proclaimed to the ends of the earth: Tell my daughter, Zion, “Look, here comes your Deliverer! See? He’s bringing his reward, and his recompense goes before him. 12 They will be called His Holy People, The Redeemed of Yahweh. And you will be known as Those Whom God Loves, A City Not Abandoned.

Here’s what I’ve learned through it all:
Don’t give up; don’t be impatient;
be entwined as one with the Lord.
Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope.
Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!
