“You are my strong tower
Fortress when I’m weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek.”

Scripture: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10
Reflection: The idea of the LORD (or even just His Name) as a strong tower is most reassuring! Each one of us needs a refuge, a place to run to, when we feel pursued by enemies or overwhelmed by life itself. But have we considered its protection when we need to be saved from ourselves? Ponder the verses leading up to Proverbs 18:10. They warn us of acting like fools, of talking like fools, of being gossipers and slanderers, and of being just plain lazy. Ouch! Guilty as charged.
Who can save me from myself? Only the LORD – His Name is my strong tower. When I run into it, I am set on high and I can rise above that which pulverizes me to weakness. Jesus indeed is my fortress when I am weak. And I am safe… when it’s His face that I see!
