Strong tower

I woke up this morning with yesterday on my mind. I didn’t entirely care for yesterday. At least not all parts of yesterday. As I walked to work, I told God I was going to need help if I was going to be Christ incarnate in this world. If I was going to be out there right in the middle of the action I was going to need some protection. For some reason, I started to pray for God to be a wall around me. For Him to be a fence around me to protect me in this world.

I remembered the song with the line “The name of the LORD is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and they are safe.” Over the next few hours I began to sing the line over and over to myself. It was the only line I could remember in the song. The devil and my flesh can try whatever they want, but I am going to affirm that Jesus is my Rock, my Fortress, my Defender, my Strong Tower. After a few hours, I felt almost as if yesterday never happened and I became ready to be incarnate in my world again. I think I sank my roots a bit deeper in Christ today.

Tonight I am struggling for other reasons. The topic of the things I feel God leading me toward that are unChristian in my opinion came up again. Sometimes I wish God would just send me an actual letter about my life. Spell it out in plain English. I know the Bible, but I mean a letter that names names and tells me exactly what to do in all my situations. It would be so convenient to have it spelled out for me.

I am in this life way over my head. God is going to have to be my Mighty Fortress.

The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. – Proverbs 18:10
