A Strong Tower

 “From the ends of the earth I call to You, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.  For You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.” (Ps. 61:2-3)

“The Name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”  (Prov. 18:10)

Have you ever watched an old movie where a group of people were being pursued by an enemy? Just when it seems their destruction is sure they come upon a cave or stronghold where they take refuge. When the enemy arrives they are unable to penetrate the stronghold and those taking refuge are kept safe behind its walls.

Being Pursued: 

Many times David found himself being pursued by the enemy. When his heart grew faint from running he cried to his God for help. He called to the Rock who was higher and bigger than himself. He knew that God would be his refuge and strong tower. And God did not fail him. Time after time David found the Lord to be a faithful refuge. A place where he was kept safe from his enemies.

Run 2 God 4 Safety:

And this is what the Lord promises to all of us who run to Him for safety. He becomes the strong tower for all who call upon Him. When we find ourselves pursued by the enemy we can find safety and refuge behind the strong walls of the Lord. When our hearts grow faint, God will become our Rock of refuge. He will keep us safe from the enemy’s reach. If you are feeling pursued by the enemy today, then call upon the Lord. Run to Him now. He will not fail you. He will not allow the enemy to overtake you.

Safety is Assured:

He will become your strong tower and a Rock where you can find safety. How, you might ask… Through His Name! This is the most powerful reality of all… the Apostle Paul tells us that at the Name of Jesus every knee must bow and every tongue must confess that He is Lord! (Phil. 2:9-11) There just is no higher authority in the universe. The Apostle James tells us that when the enemy (Satan) comes, all we need to do is resist him and he will flee from us (Jms. 4:7).

So, let this be your reminder my friend – draw near to God and resist the devil and safety will be assured, because He is a Strong Tower of Refuge.
