The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs 18:10
When we think about a tower, what comes to mind? Usually we think about a large structure overseeing the land. Even today in modern times, towers are still a part of civilization. Think about the famous Eifel tower, Americas Freedom Tower, Chinas Great Wall has many towers implemented into it.
The main purpose of the tower originally was for defense in ancient times. It allowed better visibility to warn a community about an enemy approaching. Jesus is our Strong Tower or Watch Tower, he opens the eyes of the spiritually blind. When you are led by the Holy Spirit, you see the wickedness of yourself instead of turning to man for solutions , you turn to God, your strong tower.
Another example of a strong tower is a lighthouse. During a storm in a raging sea, there is a tower of light standing on the coast to guide people home. Jesus is our Light, he is our guide to keep us on course. Without the light , we would blindly be lost in the ocean and perish from the wrath of the storm
When life gets hard and full of turmoil, run to your strong tower, the Lord Jesus Christ. As a shepherd watching over his sheep, The Lord is watching over You! If only the world would look to God for answers instead of ourselves, if we would only go to the strong tower, then maybe we would see things from a different perspective, Amen!
