The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. (Proverbs 18:10)
I compared the Lord to an inanimate object, a tower, to show a true characteristic of our creator. To fathom that God is this strong and sturdy structure, a place where safety abounds, gives insurmountable assurance. It's a place where we belong.
God knows His people. Why shouldn't the Lord? He created us, and He knows what we need and what we can handle. We are privileged to have access to Him.
I want you to experience comfort in knowing God is on your side. He is not vicious - on the contrary. He is available to us and does not abandon you or me. It doesn't matter what we have to break free from; when you and I run to God, we will be safe.
Lord, Keep me safe from life's storms. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
