“The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:3………..
When the Lord told me to go read Proverbs 18, I didn’t know why. I simply obeyed. He knew why. He had just watched me experience something yucky. Hard. Sort of scary. Uncomfortable. He knew my heart. He knew my need. And He knew the comfort and hope I would find when I came across the scripture above. What a blessing that no matter what we go through, no matter what we face, no matter what we experience, no matter how we feel, we can run to the Lord Jesus Christ – and to His name which is associated with His authority, sovereignty, power, love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, healing, compassion, tenderness, kindness, wisdom, direction, redemption, death on the cross, resurrection, salvation, deliverance, glory, and every other wonderful attribute and characteristic about Him. And in Him we can find the safety and protection of forever with Him for those who have turned from our sins and placed our trust in Him as Lord and truly turned our lives over to Him and His ways.
