In Proverbs 18:10, it is written, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”
What does it mean for the name of the Lord to be a strong tower? A tower is a tall, formidable structure used for protection. It offers a secure place for those inside to find refuge during times of danger. Similarly, the name of the Lord represents protection for us—a stronghold, an unshakeable fortress.
But how do we seek refuge in the name of the Lord? The key lies in the term “righteous.” To be righteous is to maintain a right relationship with God, to heed His commands, and to earnestly pursue His will.
By endeavoring to lead a righteous life, we can approach the name of the Lord with confidence, assured that He will grant us protection and sanctuary.
Yet, the name of the Lord is more than just a physical bastion. It also serves as a wellspring of strength and solace. Psalm 20:1 states, “May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!”
When we invoke the name of the Lord during trying times, He listens and endows us with the fortitude and consolation required to overcome our challenges.
Thus, let us cherish the name of the Lord as a robust tower in our lives. Let us commit to righteous living and seek His name in our moments of distress. In doing so, may we discover safety, power, and the comforting embrace of His love.
