What is Flag Day? It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on this day in 1777. Why is this a Parent Minute topic? Because it reminds me of a name of God: Jehovah Nissi, “The Lord my Banner (or flag).” God revealed this particular name when Israel defeated Amalek while wandering in the wilderness. As a family, we face attacks from the enemy all the time. Trials hit us from all sides: kids rebel, sickness hits families, divorce—you name it. When you gather under Jehovah Nissi as your banner, trust Him with the outcome of your battle. There’s always going to be that proverbial war, but we know God will always be the winner.
