The Lord Is Our Banner
"Moses built an altar and named it The LORD is My Banner…" Exodus 17:15
When the enemy thunders down on the Hebrews in the wilderness, Moses lifts up his staff and calls down the power of God. The rod wasn’t magic, but symbolized that the Jews were marching under the banner of the true God. It was as if Moses’ staff had a flag attached. It symbolized the source of their aid, their allegiance and their alignment. When the Lord is our banner, we declare that our aid comes from Him, our allegiance is to Him and His Kingdom, and we align with His values and character as our standard.
