Proverbs 18:10-The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
A tower is a tall building or structure erected for the purposes of protection and preservation. In the olden days, watch towers would be a hiding place for soldiers. A place where they would feel safe and secure. In the wilderness, towers were used to watch out for approaching bandits and enemies
The term tower is used in the Bible metaphorically. In the above verse our Lord is referring to Himself as a “tower.” It is symbolic of God’s protection over us-His children. In this dangerous world, the Lord is assuring us of His protection. He is asking us to hold on to His name and stand strong in Him. He is the One who will guard us and provide for us in all situations. We can take refuge in Him and He will direct our paths. When everything around us is falling apart run to this Strong Tower.Our Lord is a Strong Tower. He will protect and preserve His people.
