A Strong Tower

(Read Proverbs 18)

A Strong Tower

Proverbs 18:10 “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.”

Has life ever just seems to be crashing in all around you? That everything that could and can go wrong, has gone wrong?

We have all been there when the storms of life seem overwhelming. It is a struggle we will all face whether it involves, school, a job, relationship, loss of a loved one, or many other circumstances that take wear us down. Ultimately though we have a choice, we can try and weather the storm by ourselves or we can turn to God and allow Him to comfort us, strengthen us, and help us through.

Real storms get pretty rough, especially near the water but there is one structure built to survive a storm, whether it a simple thunderstorm or a hurricane. That is a lighthouse, built on a solid rock foundation these towers stand their grown no matter what storms are sent their way. Waves can crash into them, lightning can strike all around them, and fog can blind sight for miles. Yet this tower with its piercing beam of light keeps people and ships safe no matter what is going on around it.

In the same way God is our strong tower, our mighty fortress, our lighthouse. He keeps us protected and safe, He will also direct us in the path or course we need to take. Now that does not mean we will not go through the storm or trial, simply that He will give us the strength and protection to see us through them.

So no matter what you are facing today, turn that struggle over to God. Run to the safety of His arms and allow Him to give you the strength to endure life’s toughest challenges.
