“The name of the Lord is a fortified tower, the righteous run to it and are safe.”
Proverbs 18:10 NIV
I remembered playing tag as a child. We would choose the biggest rock in the middle of the complex to be “base” and then we’d choose someone to be “it”. That person would count and then come chasing after us all, trying to lay hands on anyone they could. If you were caught then you were it but, if you made it to base you were guaranteed safety. You were untouchable!! Most times, once you hit base the one that was “it” wouldnt even come near you because they knew you were safe on that rock.
As I meditated on that scripture I realized the similarities in that game, my life and how today Christ is that rock for me and many others.
As I continued to roll it around in my head the word “righteous” stuck out to me. It was as if I had gotten the basics, but RIGHTEOUS was the key word.
So what does righteous mean??
Basically it’s living your life according to the word of God, Living Gods way….
Many times we skip over “Righteous”. Maybe we don’t really understand what it means, or righteous living isn’t something were ready for, but we’ll have to get ready because according to the Word, those are the ones the promise is for.
“the RIGHTEOUS run to it and are safe”
So many things are constantly after us. Our past, addictions, negative mindsets, fears, exes (They’re bad too girl 😂). They don’t want to just “tag” us out they want to TAKE US OUT!! They want us to give up on our dreams our faith AND our life! But no matter how much they chase us we have ALWAYS have a BASE to run to. With Christ we are guaranteed safety. We are UNTOUCHABLE!!
If you don’t have a personal relationship with Him, I encourage you to receive Him today. Confess Him as your Lord and Savior and ask Him to enter your life today. You’ll be glad you did!!
