The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Are you in distress? Are you in pain? Are you confused? Are you in debt? Are you depressed? Are you in great danger? Are you in need?---All you need to do is to call on the name of...
the Lord. The name of the Lord is a strong tower and the righteous run into it and they are safe. Romans 10:13 says everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. That's soothing and comforting to know. Just calling on the name of the Lord is the solution. It brings salvation, total salvation of the body, soul and spirit.

The name 'JESUS' is a name above all names in Heaven, on earth and under the earth. At the mention of the name Jesus all knees bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the father (Philipians 2:10-11) .That's how powerful the name of our Lord Jesus Christ is. What are we waiting for, why don't we start calling on the name of the Lord now! The Knees of distress, pain, confusion, depression, danger ,anger etc all bow at the mention of JESUS CHRIST!! Wow!!
I want us to look at the meaning of a strong tower as used in Proverbs 18:10: The name of the Lord is a Strong Tower; the righteous run into it and they are safe.

What is a Strong Tower? A tower is not a modern day skyscraper or any tall building. A Strong tower is a place of safe refuge. It fights more enemies in its range, it causes more damage to the enemies, and can take more damage than the normal watch tower. A strong tower has large areas to sleep large amounts of men, and can hold and store a large amount of food. Its huge and heavily fortified. They are built of thick stone blocks and they are tough.

Now the spiritual similarities: Strong towers have thick stone blocks and are enormous. Our God is a rock, He is our fortress, Our stronghold. In fact in Psalm 61:3, David says of the Lord been his refuge and strong tower against the foe. How true. Our God is so huge. In Jeremiah 23:24 our Lord declares He fills the Heavens and the Earth. That's how big our God is. He fills it ALL. No situation is too Big for him. Luke 1:37 says ' For with God all things are possible'.

A strong tower is also a place of abundance. There is a great storage of food and provision. Our Lord is a provider. He says cast all your burdens on Me because I care. Psalm 23 says the, 'The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want'! Matthew 6:31-33 says' Do not worry saying what shall we eat or what shall we drink? or what shall we wear? for the pagans run after these things, and your heavenly father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom and righteousness , and all these things will be given to you as well'. Jehovah Jireh is His name, the Lord our provider in times of great need. The Lord will supply all your needs according to His great riches.

No more aching brows, no more swollen limbs, no more dim eyes, no more fainting hearts. The old man shall be no more a bundle of infirmities, nor the sick man a mass of agony all we need to do is to call on the name of Lord Jesus Christ Now!!Call On Him, say Lord Jesus Christ Help Me!! He will show up strongly!!

Bible Study: Jesus is our Strong tower, in him is our security, salvation and provision. Meditate on these verses below:
(a) I Am Who I Am:
Exodus 3:14- God said to Moses, "I am who I am . This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' "
John 8:58-I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!

(b) God Fills Heaven And Earth:
Jeremiah 23:24 - Can anyone hide in secret places
so that I cannot see him?"declares the LORD. "Do not I fill heaven and earth?"declares the LORD.

(c) You Shall Not Want
Psalm 23:1 -The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
(d) All things are possible with God
Luke 1:37- For nothing is impossible with God.

(e) Everyone who calls on the Lord will be Saved
Romans 10:13-For, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

(f) Every Knee Bows
Philipians 2:10-11-That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
