Proverbs 18:10; The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
Dictionary.com shows it as a tower of strength, a person who can be relied on for support, aid, or comfort, especially in times of difficulty. I don’t know about you, but that’s how I view this verse. When trouble comes, which it does often, He is who I run to. His presence offers safety and peace in the midst of stress and pressure.
How comforting to know that His very name does that. I can call on him and he answers me and shows me things I didn’t know. Simple things. Silly things.
Since the time change, I’ve been attempting to correct the time on my car to no avail. I’ve done it before. Shoot, I’ve had the car for 7 years so I do it twice a year. I knew there was something I was missing, but I just couldn’t remember. So on my way to prayer yesterday morning, I heard the Spirit say, ‘Turn on your radio! Now try.’ and it worked. I simply had to stop striving and listen.
That may sound silly to you, but God cares about everything that concerns me. He’s my hero, my strong tower, my place of safety I can run to anytime. There is nothing to large or small that he doesn’t want to be involved in with me. Where I’m weak, he is strong. When I don’t know, he knows. How thrilling to know that I have relationship with such a Mighty God.
Father, I love that you want relationship with me. Real relationship. Not surface stuff, real stuff, the stuff lives are made of. Day to day, sharing everything good and bad, growing deeper in love with you. I’m so glad you adopted me as your daughter and are so patient with me. I ask you for wisdom in everything I do today. It’s in Jesus’ name. Amen
