Strong Tower. This particular phrase has been on my mind today. Psalm 46 in the NLT begins with these words of hope; “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” No matter our trouble; our God is more than able and ready to help. There are so many hymns that come to mind that associate the strength of God and strong tower. ‘Strong Tower’ is the title of a song that many of us may be familiar with. ‘You are my strong tower and shelter over me.’ These words are so true and right out of scripture. The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower from the song ‘Blessed Be the Name’. It goes on with the lyrics, the righteous run in to it and they are saved. Proverbs 18:10 AMP “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and it is safe and set on high [far above evil].” The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower. That means that God will defend and protect us. Towers are the stronghold of defense. The highest place of protection. The righteous (that’s us) run to it (that’s the strong tower of God) and find safety. Set on high means that God is able to lift us up. When we run to God, He lifts us up out of our trouble. Safe and secure from all alarm. God is our Strong Tower. When we run to God, we will find hope.
