“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10 ESV)
1.) The name of the Lord is a strong tower.
^That is the name of the Lord. 🙂
2.) The righteous man runs into it.
No one can be perfected by the law. No one is free of sin, but those who believe in Him is free from it.
“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.” (Romans 3:21-22)
“One day as I was passing into the field…this sentence fell upon my soul. Thy righteousness is in heaven. And methought, withal, I saw with the eyes of my soul Jesus Christ at God’s right hand; there, I say, was my righteousness; so that wherever I was, or whatever I was doing, God could not say of me, He lacks my righteousness, for that was just before Him. I also saw, moreover, that it was not my good frame of heart that made my righteousness better, nor yet my bad frame that made my righteousness worse, for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, ‘The same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Heb 13:8). I was loosed from my afflictions and irons; my temptations also fled away; so that from that time those dreadful scriptures of God [about the unforgivable sin] left off to trouble me; now went I also home rejoicing for the grace and love of God.”
3.) The name of the Lord is safe.
It is a sanctuary to those who seek refuge in Him. There is no other name higher than the name of our God Most High.
Rest and rejoice in this wonderful Truth. Our God is a strong tower. Call upon the name of the LORD and be saved.
