THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A STRONG TOWER
Writing these devotions has drawn me closer to God. Prayerfully, as you read them, you are drawn closer to Him. They speak to me in moments of my life when I need to hear from the Lord. To call on the name of the Lord knowing that He is a strong tower gives me strength in my weakness. There is no other name like the name of Jesus. There is no other power like that of the Lord. Just the sound of His name brings music to our soul. He can supply all we need in our lives. Just call on the name of the Lord for He is strong and mighty, mighty in power. Proverbs 18:10 is our reference for today’s devotion.
“The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.”
In this wisdom literature, the writer indicates that there is power in the name of the Lord. The name of the Lord is a refuge for the righteous. His name, Yahweh, the name, which God revealed to Israel as a covenant can be called upon and the people will be blessed. He will shelter them from the enemy and bless them from on high. He will undergird them with loving care and protect them from all harm and danger. Those who run to Him will be safe. I pray that today, you will continually call on His name. Be assured that He will hold you by His victorious right hand and He will grant you the strength to endure. Thank God, today, that there is no other name we can rely on, but the name of the Lord. Rest in His presence. Trust Him.
