The tower or fortress of the rich man is placed in his assets, in everything he owns, they place all their confidence in their riches thinking that they will free them from any attack, but they are wrong, because the confidence that they have in their wealth make them fall faster in the deep hole.
But what about the one who puts God before him as his strong tower? He is kept by Him, since His greatest wealth is to be a wise son of God, he keeps His word before everything else. Our God is our strong Rock, refuge and strong tower in the midst of storms.
I have not seen a helpless righteous, because God is always looking at his difficulty to help and lift him up.
10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
Proverbs 18:10-12 (KJV)
God is a strong tower, so is His name, but He is also a strong tower for the weak. God is the one who holds the hand of the one who no longer has the strength to get up. So, let us seek to have our strong rock, our refuge, and strong tower which is our God. Let’s trust Him.
