"The Strong Tower"

“The Strong Tower”

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. Proverbs 18:10

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and my stronghold. Psalms 18:2

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. Psalms 118:8

Our verses of Scripture, today, tells us something about the character of the ALMIGHTY God in His RELATIONSHIP with the RIGHTEOUS people, those who have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him and are known as the Children of God.

First, let us look at the NAME of the Lord God. His Name is EXALTED. Psalm 148:13 says: “Let them praise the Name of the Lord, for His Name alone is exalted; His majesty is above earth and Heaven.” His Name is TRUSTWORTHY; Psalm 9:10, “And those who know Your name put their TRUST in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.” His Name is POWERFUL; Psalm 20:1 “May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!” These are just a few verses that describe the AWESOME NAME of our Lord God. Proverbs 18:10 says that God’s name is a STRONG TOWER, where the RIGHTEOUS MAN can run to and is SAFE.

The Psalmist tells us in Psalm 18:2, that the Lord God is a ROCK, FORTRESS, DELIVERER, REFUGE, SHIELD, and STRONGHOLD. That pretty much describes the attributes of the NAME of God, which tells us about His character. His name is a STRONG TOWER, where the RIGHTEOUS can run to in the times of TROUBLE and DISTRESS, and be saved, because that NAME, the STRONG TOWER, is also a ROCK, FORTRESS, DELIVERER, REFUGE, SHIELD and STRONGHOLD.

Psalm 118:8, says: “It is better to take REFUGE in the Lord than to TRUST in man.” We can be assured that when we call on the NAME of the Lord God, He will HEAR and ANSWER. Because HE is our REFUGE. Mankind does NOT possess what it takes to be a REFUGE. They, themselves NEED a REFUGE. So why RUN to a WEAKLING to KEEP you SAFE? But that STRONG TOWER, which is also a ROCK, FORTRESS, DELIVERER, REFUGE, SHIELD and STRONGHOLD, is ONLY available to those who have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the LORD. In order for you to be able to have the safety of the STRONG TOWER, you MUST RUN to GOD, by first TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO Him, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a RIGHTEOUS PERSON, who can RUN to the STRONG TOWER in times of need. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
