God Is Our Strong Tower

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
Whether we like to admit it or not, we live in a dark and dangerous world. A world which was broken by sin when humanity chose to rebel against God. Listening the lie of the enemy rather than God who created them and loved them beyond measure, a crown was traded for the chains of slavery.

All praise and glory be to God, who refused... absolutely refused to leave us to our own devises, stumbling and tripping over our chains in utter darkness! The same God who delivered us from darkness and brought us into His marvelous light, the same God who broke our chains and set us free, will never forsake us!

I know, that is sometimes hard to believe. There are the times when our world seems to be crumbling. We lost the job, the marriage failed, friends betrayed us, our family mocked us or the pathologist says, "It's cancer." We peer through the darkness, straining our eyes to see Him through the storm and... see nothing but the wind, the waves and the driving rain. The only thing we seem to be able to hear is the shrieking laughter of the enemy challenging us, "Where is your God now? He has abandoned you and left you to die in this place!" Sound familiar?

Every day we are faced with the same choice Adam and Eve made. Who are we going to believe? God or the enemy? We must never forget that regardless of what we face in this life, God is a strong tower. We are safe in Him... no matter what!
