“But you are a tower of refuge to the poor, O LORD,
a tower of refuge to the needy in distress.
You are a refuge from the storm
and a shelter from the heat.
For the oppressive acts of ruthless people
are like a storm beating against a wall,” (Isaiah 25:4 NLT)
Well-built towers–whether to house a light-house or skyline a castle can weather the storms of nature or withstand the onslaught of rebellious people.
The Lord is a strong tower–One in which we can be assured of safety against all the elements and those who oppose and rebel against His Word.
We can expect–the needy to find help from those who know The Lord.
We can expect–those in need of shelter from the storms waged by the enemy to find safe haven.
We can expect–provision from being decimated by extreme seasons and political unrest.
We can expect–with certainty–for all those who create problems to suffer the consequences of their actions–whether they are on the right side of The Lord or the wrong side for His justice does not discriminate and He holds no bias based upon political affiliation or any other trait or entity (openly or behind closed doors) that defies Him.
He sees and knows all things and His Word–shall uphold all who obey it and for those who do not–that same Word will convict and bring about the consequences for going against Him.
It is not a mystery for it is written–for the benefit of all–whether it is believed or not–nothing changes it for the Lord is King of Kings and whatever the King has written–He will not change.
Father, in the name of Jesus, help us to understand with clarity who You are, how You want us to live and all that You have prepared for us when we obey and when we don’t. Create in us a heart of flesh that desires to please You and not self and a will to obey You, and not the dictates of men. Thank You for being The Strong Tower for all who will run to You!
