(NKJV and KJV Scripture)

– The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it – and are safe. – Proverbs 18:10

Back in the olden days of yore, much of the known world’s inhabited landscape was dotted with castles and walled cities. Towards the back of each – furthest from where enemy forces were most likely to approach and attack first – were large, tall, and strong towers in many locations.  They were the most heavily fortified and protected.

They were places where people could run to – to seek refuge and safety from invading armies.  Soldiers could come to regroup and rearm themselves with more munitions which were stored there.  These towers were called “keeps” – hence our modern phrase of “playing for keeps”.

God and Satan are “playing for keeps” daily.  Satan is trying to devour all of us and take us captive at will (1 Peter 5:8-9, 2 Timothy 2:26).  The Lord is trying to deliver us  – by us doing His will (Luke 11:2).  The wicked one launches his fiery darts (Ephesians 6:16) at our bulwarks of belief – trying to set them ablaze and burn them down to the ground.

When we feel like we’re being attacked on all sides by this world’s warfare and worries – the right thing to always do – is run back to the strong tower of the Lord’s name (lead verse). There we can be safe and regroup.  Then we can go back out into the world as Christian soldiers with a new coat of God’s armor on (Ephesians 6:11-17).
