Strong Tower

"The name of the Lord is a Strong Tower; The righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10

"For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe." Psalm 61

In the Bible it says that Christ is our Strong Tower. When I think of a 'Strong Tower'
I would probably think about Minas Tirith (see below). But in the movie it is broken and beaten. God's tower can never be broken. If the Bible says that Christ is our Strong Tower, what do you think his tower would look like? Amazing! Completely ridiculous! The walls would be a hundred feet thick with guns all around it, booby traps and all... You get the point. The righteous who flee to him, God will protect.

But sometimes -strike that- a lot of times we will stray from that Strong Tower; from God's loving arms. And that is where we meet the foe and worldly influences.

lol I like the Lord of the Rings reference. But yes, those who get beaten spiritually get beaten not because of the weakness of their Strong Tower, but because they come out of it! Thanks for the reminder.

When you drift away from God nothing goes right. It's not God that has left, but rather it is our heart that has left.
God Bless!

Amen! Isn't it so amazing that we have such a God?
