Proverbs 18:10

October 8, 2019

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

Devotional Thoughts

By David Wilkerson

If I am to live by my faith, I must do as Noah did and build an ark to ride out the storm.

“By faith Noah . . . moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house” (Hebrews 11:7).

The ark that Noah built represents Jesus Christ — and there is no other safe place on earth.

When Isaiah prophesied of a king coming to reign in righteousness, he was clearly describing Christ:

“A man shall be as a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land” (Isaiah 32:2).

All over the world people are desperately searching for a safe place to hide their money. Multitudes are buying guns to protect their families during what they believe will be a dark time of “every man for himself.” These include Bible-believing Christians.

Yet there is no place of guaranteed safety on earth, except to abide in Jesus. I don’t state this as some empty theology that Christians often say thoughtlessly. For over two thousand years, those who have trusted in Jesus for safety have proven God’s Word faithful.
