STRONG TOWER–Proverbs 18:10
The Name of the LORD is a Strong Tower; the righteous run into it and they are safe. – Proverbs 18:10
Yes, the Name of our LORD is a Strong Tower unto us. When problems besiege us from all the directions, when our enemies seem to surround us, when the trials and tests of this world are overpowering us, we have only one Strong Tower as our Refuge. Only one place to go under – the Name of our LORD.
But we need to run into it. Our Refuge is there, our Strong Tower is there waiting for us with expectation, “Oh My son, My dear daughter, won’t you come under the protection that I AM offering you? Won’t you call Me by My Name so that you can be safe under My roof?”
Yes, we need to run into it. We need to call our LORD by His Name. We should know His Name. Every Name that is attributed to LORD our God has a significance. And when we know the significance of the Name of our LORD, we will realize that there is no situation in this world, nothing, nothing at all is too difficult for us. No power on this earth can overpower us.
Strong Tower. The God does not promise that when you call on His Name, all the problems will vanish. HE does not promise that all will be peace and safe. No. All He promises is that you will be safe. Arrows may come at you, but the Strong Tower will take it. A great wind may blow across, a great deluge may against you. But none of them will touch you. The Strong Tower is there between them and you. The waters will batter the Strong Tower, but hey, there is no power that can overcome our LORD. Amen.
When Jesus was betrayed, His disciples were with Him. And, they were in danger too. But the Gospel according to John records a beautiful event that saved them from the danger. Jesus asks them who they were seeking and they told Him that they were looking for Jesus. When our LORD answered in affirmative, John tells that the soldiers fell face down as they were scared. They were so afraid they did not bother to touch His disciples. And, what did Jesus say? “I AM He.”
