Jesus is My Strong Tower
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
A Strong, Tall Tower
In the Old Testament, strong, tall towers provided protection and safety. Anytime there was danger, the people of the city could run to the tower to find refuge. Jesus is your strong tower. When you feel under attack, unsafe, or afraid, you can you to Him.
Here are four things Jesus’ strong tower provides for you today.
1. It is a place of refuge. If an enemy attacked, or any danger was present, the people would run to the strong tower. It would provide a place of refuge in the storm or battle. Jesus is your refuge. Never be afraid to run to him in your daily spiritual battle. If you are afraid, run to the strong tower of the Lord.
2. It was a place of security. The tower provided a stronghold against the enemy. When an enemy attacked, the tower provided a strategic advantage in the battle. You have the King of glory on your side. You have the Lord Jesus dwelling in you. He has empowered you with spiritual weapons. Can you ever be afraid knowing God is ready to defend and provide for you?
3. It gave direction. The tower was often the highest point in the area. It provided a point of reference. You always knew where you were based on the position of the tower. God’s presence in your life is the anchor for your soul. As long as you stay close to Him, you are protected from the lies and deception around you. The Word of God is your point of reference when you face uncertain times. Look to Jesus, and He will show you the way.
4. The tower provided oversight. A watchman was placed at the top of the tower to keep guard over the city. From his vantage point, He could see enemies or dangers coming. He could watch over the people and see those who were getting too far away. Jesus is watching over you today. He draws you back to Himself when you stray and is never surprised by the struggles or difficulties you face.
When we feel like you just can’t take it any longer, run to the strong tower of the Lord. He will protect and empower you.
Look at that promise again.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. – Proverbs 18:10
