Strong Tower

May 18, 2013

Psalm 29:11The LORD will give strength to His people; The LORD will bless His people with peace.

From NetBible Ps 29:11

  • * Strength. This probably refers to military power
  • * “blesses his people with peace.” The Hebrew term שָׁלוֹם (shalom, “peace”) probably refers here to the protection and prosperity experienced by God’s people after the Lord intervenes in battle on their behalf.

Proverbs 18:10The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.

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.
  • “a tower of strength,” with “strength” regarded as attributive by most English versions. 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).
  • * “is high” or “is inaccessible.” This military-type expression stresses the effect of the trust – security, being out of danger (see HALOT 1305 s.v. שׂגב). Other scriptures will supply the ways that God actually protects people who trust him.

I AM your strong tower, your secure refuge
Run to Me with unwavering trust in Me and My protection.

Be drawn underneath My wings
There you will be blessed with My strength and peace beyond understanding
There you will find rest.

I AM your ever present, well-proved help
In the shadow of My wings rejoice and sing for joy
For experiencing My love is better than life! -Ps 46:1,63:3,7,91:14,9:9-10

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. -Ps 91:14 AMP

The Lord also will be a refuge and a high tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation). And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity]. -Ps 9:9-10 AMP

The Lord Your Keeper

June 4, 2011

Psalm 121:5, 8 The Lord is your keeper … The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.

Psalm 85:13Righteousness{peace} goes before Him, and makes His footsteps our pathway{sets us in the way of His steps}.

1 Samuel 2:9
He keeps the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might{strength} shall a man prevail.

I was thinking about the above scriptures this morning, how the Lord guides and keeps you as you go on His way. He gave me this song:

The Lord Your Keeper

The Lord your keeper -Ps 121:5
The Lord your peace -Ps 29:11
Gives strength for the day -Deut 33:25
To follow His way. -Ps 85:13; 1 Sam 2:9

So fear not
And be not dismayed
For the Lord who is with you
He will keep you always. -Isa 41:10

This prompted me to study the scripture for ‘strength for the day’. This really encouraged me! He is the Rock beneath our feet. He will not let our foot slip for He who keeps us will not sleep.

Word Study

Deut 33:24-25 NIV … About Asher he said: “Most blessed of sons is Asher; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him bathe his feet in oil. The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.

NKJV … And of Asher he said: “Asher is most blessed of sons; Let him be favored by his brothers, and let him dip his foot in oil. Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; As your days, so shall your strength be .

From Deut 33:24 Commentary
John Gill:
and let him dip his foot in oil;
have such plenty of it, that if he would he might dip or wash his feet in it; and it was usual not only to anoint the head, but the feet also, with oil, -Lk 7:46

Matthew Henry:
All shall be sanctified to true believers; if their way be rough, their feet shall be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. As thy days, so shall thy strength be. The day is often in Scripture put for the events of the day; it is a promise that God would graciously and constantly support under trials and troubles, whatever they were. It is a promise sure to all the spiritual seed of Abraham. Have they work allotted? They shall have strength to do it. Have they burdens appointed? They shall have strength, and never be tempted above what they are able to bear.

From Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass
*under your shoes shall be iron = strength
shoes of peace -Eph 6:15

From Deut 33:25 Commentary
John Gill:
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass
though some Jewish writers take the sense to be, that the land of Asher was so strongly fortified as if it had been enclosed with walls of brass and iron, or the gates of its cities were shut up with bolts and bars of iron and brass, as Jarchi, Kimchi, and Ben Melech observe; so the Arabic:

and as thy days, so shall thy strength be;
the same in old age as in youth; which is the sense of the Latin Vulgate version, and all the Targums: such were the vigour and strength of. Moses himself, -Deut 34:7; and so may denote a renewal of youth, like that of eagles; and, in a spiritual sense, a revival of the graces of the Spirit of God, as to the exercise of them, and an increase of spiritual strength, so that the inward man is renewed day by day; and may also denote such a measure of strength given, as is proportioned to the events that daily befall, or to the services and sufferings men are called unto; -1 Cor 10:13.

Feet washed in fragrant oil would leave fragrant oily footprints wherever they walked! -2 Cor 2:14-17

Sun and Shield

January 9, 2010

Psalm 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

The Lord God our sun to enlighten and quicken,
Our sun to direct, warm and comfort,
Is also our shield and defense; our protection.
An ever present help in times of trouble. -Ps 46:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold{strength} of my life —
of whom shall I be afraid? -Ps 27:1

Give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.
I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify Your name forever. -Ps 86:11-12

For You, O LORD, are a shield about me,

Thank You Lord Jesus that You are our sun and shield! Help us each turn to You, rely on You and continue to walk uprightly. Thank You that as we do this You will be glorified. Praise You Lord Jesus, my glory, my strength and shield – the lifter of my head!

Be Strong

July 7, 2009

Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for and hope for and expect the Lord! -Ps 31:24

AND remember timing is everything 🙂

But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands -Ps 31:14-15

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted;

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. -Isa 40:28-31 AMP
