The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe. - Proverbs 18:10

 

Everyday events, worldwide conflict, community conditions and the cultural climate would indicate that our contemporary context can be described as chaotic at best. It seems as though conflict and violence exists in every corner of the globe. Social and economic uncertainty coupled with a shifting moral foundation has made modern living unstable and destructive. These are dangerous days.

 

A violent mentality marks our culture. We murder not only by actions but also by attitude and words. The homicide rates rise in cities across the country but not independent of suicide  and domestic violence rates. We are out of control emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

 

But there is a word of encouragement for the righteous.

 

The name of the Lord is a strong tower!  A place of refuge is used to describe God has the only true source of security. The strong tower is fortified, it is made of heavy, huge rocks. It's filled with food for weary soldiers and it is impossible for the enemy to penetrate. 

 

In like manner our God is a rock. God alone provides stability in the most unstable of times. God is our provider. When everything else fails, in Him alone are our needs supplied.

 

The text says the righteous run to it. By faith and prayer, we go to God. We trust God for protection and provision. There is no way we can live without Him. And in God we experience safety. We are lifted up, raised high  and placed out of danger. God is simply Awesome! God alone is worthy of our worship!

 

My God is awesome, He can move a mountains
Keep me in the valley, hide me from the rain
My God is awesome, heals me when I'm broken
Strength where I've been weakened, forever He will reign
