You’re safe

Proverbs 18:10

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.
