The name of the LORD is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe. NIV
I love the images in this verse. The Message translates it, “God’s name is a place of protection — good people can run there and be safe.” MSG
The thing about it is, I can never be good enough to earn God’s protection or his love. He loves me because I am his creation … not because of what I do or what I don’t do. And, no matter what I do, I can’t be made righteous on my own.
But, through the gift of his son, Jesus, I am made righteous … I am afforded that safety.
I am so thankful for that!
That’s what I’ll think about today.
