The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe. —Proverbs 18:10 ESV
In a world that seems to be moving too fast for us to keep up with. In a world were hurt, pain, suffering, temptation, tragedy, hopelessness, and-so-on, are a daily occurrence. It is easy to become overwhelmed and just give up. And when that happens we get depressed, discouraged and distance ourselves from people and from God. Have you ever been there, I have.
The exciting thing that Solomon is showing us is that we have a place we can run to for safety. You see, it is not some cave that is difficult to find. It is not some secret that only the learned can find out. It is not so common that it blends in with the rest of the world. It doesn’t cost you anything to enter into it, all you must do is receive it by faith. You see, our only safety is in the Lord and He is our strong tower in whom we can run to for safety, comfort, protection, rest, and-so-on.
