The Tower

The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The Righteous run to it and are saved. Proverbs 18:10

I used to work in the Hancock Tower in Chicago. It was 95 floors straight up. There was an express elevator that went from the Ground Floor to 95 in about 45 seconds. When you looked out over Lake Michigan to the east, and the city and suburbs to the north, south and west, you felt invincible, like nothing could ever shake your world.

The name of the Lord is like that. You don’t have to defend it; it’s solid. You don’t have to excuse it nor do you have to run from it. In fact, this verse tells us that we should run to it.

When you’re afraid, it’s your safe harbor. When you’re lonely; it’s your friend. When you’re hurt and wounded, it’s the salve that will heal.

Run to the Tower of the Lord; run often.
