Beloved Names of God....Strong Tower

Strong Tower
 
"The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and it is safe."
Proverbs 18:10 
 
  • Name of God the Father
  • God is referred to as a "strong tower" twice in the KJV; Once in the book of Psalms and once in the book of Proverbs.
  • A strong tower is a defensive, protective place where the innocent might withstand the attacks of their enemies.
  • King Solomon, the probable author of Proverbs 18, compared the safety found in the Lord with the illusory sense of security some men find in worldly wealth. He pointed out that their conceited attitude will be the cause of their downfall.
The ancient Irish used to built stone towers near their abbeys. When Viking raider appeared, the monks and villagers would take themselves and their valuables up a ladder and into the towers through doors 12 feet from the ground. Then they would hoist the ladder up behind them, close the door, and wait for the threat to go away.
 
Isn't it comforting to know that in a world where evil is still attacking, that's the kind of protection God offers the faithful?
