“So, even if the battle continues to rage beyond your walls, be strong in the Lord and the strength of his might for the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it, and they are saved.”
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower,
The righteous run into it,
And they are saved.”
I listened fondly to the old chorus sung by a good friend on Facebook Live. Dating myself slightly, this song takes me back to the days of my church youth. We loved bouncing up and down while we sang it with hand actions to the chorus.
Traditionally, a strong tower is a fortified tower usually built within the walls of a castle. The king would retreat to this tower, within the bounds of the castle, when the castle came under siege from his enemy. Here he would be safe. However, simply because the king was safe in his tower it did not mean the battle was over. For all intents and purposes, the battle raged on outside the bounds of his tower. The castle was still under siege and even if the castle wall were breached the king would be safe.
God’s word to you today is, the name of your Lord is your fortified tower, secure and impenetrable. When you come under siege from your enemy, Satan, retreat to your strong tower and wrap yourself securely in the name of Jesus. That is, when troubles come in the form of heartache, illness, depression or financial crisis, call on the name of Jesus Christ. You can rest securely in his name while his hosts fight your battle. The battle may continue to rage outside your camp – sickness and difficulty may persist – but you will be secure in the name of Jesus, your strong tower.
Your Warrior is your mighty champion. Nothing will separate you from his love. If he is for you, who can be against you? No weapon formed against you will prevail. In Christ, you are more than a conqueror because he defeated Satan at Calvary. His name is your fortified stronghold. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. So, even if the battle continues to rage beyond your walls, be strong in the Lord and the strength of his might for the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it, and they are saved.
God-tracking is remaining secure in the name of Jesus Christ
I believe that Satan has no weapon greater than the name of Jesus
“Dear God, I run into my strong tower today! I call on the name of Jesus Christ! Lord, hear my prayers and meet my needs. Though the battle I’m in seems to prevail, I rest secure in your name, Jesus. Your name is my strong tower. When my life comes under siege I run into your name and I know I am safe, even as the siege continues. Jesus, you are my mighty champion, you are my Victor. I believe that Satan has no weapon greater than the name of Jesus. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow! Therefore, I declare the name of Jesus Christ over every circumstance of my life. Amen.”
