Today’s Scattered Seeds
I’ve gotten used to the sound of waves when I fall asleep. Every night as I turn off the light I say, “Hey, Google, play wave sounds.” And every night it brings me back to that memory of nights spent in the tent trailer at Lake Riviera.
That was my safe place. My place of security, comfort, and warmth. With Mom and Dad in the bed right beside me, I felt protected and sheltered from harm.
As I got to thinking about that today, I turned my Bible to Proverbs 18:10, where I read the words, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it and is safe.”
The Lord is our rock, our fortress, our deliverer, our comfort, our safety, our stronghold, our peace… but He’s also a place of protection on high.
Notice the words that the Psalmist used in that verse when describing our God. He purposely used the word “tower.” A place in which we rise above the force of the battlefield. In fact, the word “safe” that we see in that verse, is the Hebrew word, “sagab” (Strong’s H7682), which in its original text means, “to be inaccessibly high” or “too high for capture.”
That’s our safe place in this world. A place of security, comfort, and warmth. A place where His people find rest.
