A safe place to run
“The Lord is a mighty tower where his people can run for safety.”(Proverbs 18:10, CEV)
Proverbs 18:10 tells us that God is a strong tower! God is our protector! Not mile after mile, but trial after trial. Moment after moment, hour after hour, circumstance after circumstance, disappointment after disappointment, God is a strong tower.
He is faithful and trustworthy. If you read through the pages of history recorded in Scripture you see time and time again God’s faithful hand in saving his people. Just the very NAME of God emanates strength. It is in his name that we have power, victory, faith, hope and love.
I like that phrase, “The righteous run to it and are safe.” (NIV)
Do you run to God to find safety? Often we look instead to things like food, drugs, booze or people to sedate our anxieties.
Today, when you find yourself becoming anxious about the cares of life, run to him.
Don’t wait, don’t walk, RUN to your Heavenly Father who waits with open arms to give you safety and comfort.
Ready, set, go!
Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Point to ponder: God is your Protector and your Strong Tower – trial after trial.
Verse: “The Lord is a mighty tower where his people can run for safety.” (Proverbs 18:10, CEV)
What will you do about it: The next time you start worrying, don’t run to your friends or some other diversion! Instead, run to God and ask him to help.
Prayer: Thank God, that there’s nothing you need to face without him. Thank him for his love and protection. And ask Him to give you the strength to turn to Him and ask for His guidance in all things.
