DAILY DEVOTION, February 8, 2021, God a strong tower
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10).
In this text God is likened to a strong tower. He is like a mighty fortress. When we enter into His presence by faith, we find safety. We know He will protect us. It doesn’t mean that we will have no difficulties. Many of our problems continue faith, or no faith. The safety God provides is the assurance that He loves us, that our sins are forgiven, and heaven is our home. We become righteous by trusting in Him. Under the New Covenant, that means trusting in Jesus.
As we live by faith, we find that God is indeed a strong tower, and we find safety in Him. Apart from faith, we live in a dangerous world where the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (to quote Shakespeare) are a daily reality. We all have a choice to make. Will we live by faith and find that God is a strong fortress? Will we look to Him for our eternal safety? Or will we live relying on human resources? Please make the right choice.
Father God, thank You for being our strong tower. Thank You that our ultimate safety is found in You. Help me to live by faith, to run to You for Your help and sustaining grace. I believe you are trustworthy, and I trust in You. In Jesus name, Amen.
