Yesterday, I was invited to come pray with some friends.
As we were praying, a song was playing softly in the background on a cd player.
When I woke up this morning, I believe that song was playing softly in my mind.
They were certainly words that I needed to hear.
Although I was leaving out the third line as I remembered it, here are the lyrics:
Your Name is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name is a shelter like no other
Your Name, let the nations sing it louder
‘Cause nothing has the power to save but Your Name
—Paul Baloche and Glen Packiam
This past July, I spent a week at a camp as a volunteer.
On the acreage there was a rapelling tower.
It was not used as any form of protection, but I can imagine the need for that type of tower in the past.
Guards could be stationed in the top of a tower to see enemies approach far in the distance.
Anyone attacking a city could be fought off by soldiers high within the tower walls.
The tower was a source of strength.
When troubles and difficult situations are approaching us, God is our tower of defense.
He is strong and mighty.
He is our shelter.
His power is ultimate and unmatched.
Proverbs 18:10 encourages us in this way:
The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
