Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
Here we have a statement of God’s sufficiency! As you ponder the picture of this scripture, do you see a lighthouse or a fortress tower? For me, it has always been a lighthouse that would lead the way even in the darkness for the traveler to find refuge. But a fortress tower is a good example of this passage too; for in a fortress, it is a strong foothold against the enemy. We can turn to our LORD no matter how He presents Himself, either as a Fortress Tower or a Lighthouse, and we can rest in Him as our sanctuary in times of turmoil. God makes Himself and all of His blessings, mercy and grace available to us; all we need to do is run to Him! Even as we are faced with personal battles, we are made confident in our LORD to be before us and behind us; always providing the resources for protection, endurance and faith. We do not face anything alone, for He is always with us. The LORD is our Rock and we can put our trust in Him; He is our shield and we are defended; His is our salvation and we are freed from sin’s grip; He is our refuge in our darkest hours.
