Verse 10: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.”
Often the bible talks about "The Name of the Lord". Both the New Testament and Old Testament mention "The Name of the Lord". The old question, "What's in a name?" is an appropriate inquiry. In scripture we find a person's name is often more than just a random assignment. Often more than naming after a family member. A name was assigned to a person's role and purpose. Often assigned through prophetic ways, a person's name recognized their identity and calling. The same is true of God. Of the many names we recognize concerning our God, Strong tower is an important identity He wants us to acknowledge. As today's "gold nugget" says, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.”
Our journey is a succession of mission after mission in service to our King. Although our calling may be the same throughout our lives, the missions we are assigned will require moments of retreat. He will never deploy us without providing for us times of shelter from the battle. He Himself is our Strong tower and the righteous run into Him for safety.
Lord, I recognize you as my Strong Tower. Help me to run to you when I am overwhelmed by the enemy and find safety in your arms. Amen
