“The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runneth into it and is safe”
In the battle field for instance, soldiers map out areas that serve as their refuge or ‘stronghold’ where they feel safe to rest or hide in, from the attacks of the enemies.
A place of refuge or stronghold is a place of safety and security from the opposing forces or enemies.
The Name of God also depicts His nature, personality and character!
Hence, when the children of God who trust in Him get freed from every evil occurrence orchestrated by the devil and all assaults from him.
No wonder David was able to call upon God when he was in distress because he knew God is capable of rescuing him. (Psalms 118:5)
He was even able to confront Goliath in his youthful age in the NAME of God.
(See 1Sam.17:45, Psalms 118:26)
But to get the assurance of being under God’s shield, there is need to get identified by Him as one of His.
Then we can boldly come to the throne of grace, where we can obtain mercy and grace to help in time of distress or need.
