Don’t Just “Turn” – RUN!

January 10, 2019

Your name
Is a strong and mighty tower –Pro 18:10
Your name
Is a shelter like no other –Ps 31:19
Your name
Let the nations sing it louder
NOTHING has the power to save –Acts 4:12
But Your name … –lyrics Paul Baloche
Blessed be the name of the LORD
He is gracious and merciful
Mighty to save –
Zep 3:17
Don’t just “turn”
Whole-heartedly trust Him
=>Run to Him and be safe{saved}!

Psalm 113:2-3 AMP
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forever.
3 From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the Lord is to be praised [with awe-inspired reverence].

Proverbs 18:10The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe(set on high).

From NetBible Pr 18:10

  • * The “name of the Lord” is a metonymy of subject. The “name” here signifies not the personal name “Yahweh,” for that would be redundant in the expression “the name of Yahweh,” but the attributes of the Lord (cf. Exod 34:5-7) – here his power to protect.
  • * The metaphor “strong tower” indicates that God is a secure refuge.
  • * The metaphor of “running” to the Lord refers to a whole-hearted and unwavering trust in God’s protection (e.g., Isa 40:31).
  • *safe = set on high(the effect of the trust => security – set on high out of reach of danger
