Place of Peace

The name of the LORD [YHWH] is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
~ Proverbs 18:10 (NKJV)

To run to any one of the many names of our God is to call upon it in prayer, to live in accordance with its character, to bless it at every opportunity.

If security and peace are interdependent, then running to the Lord's name in any moment of distress will surely bring peace.

Thank You, dear Jesus Yeshua, for the power and peace and protection in Your precious name, in the name of the LORD—YHWH.

  1. I JUST read about Iraqi Christians and the persecution they are enduring. Last Month I heard the testimony of a surviving spouse of a man killed in Turkey for his faith. And Egypt is now protecting it's churchs. We have no idea, do we? Maybe if we endured a little persecution, we would understand 'running to the Lord' for protection.

    You couldn't be more right. I think it's difficult for most American Christians to understand why some of these Christians pray for us to receive more persecution. Our brothers and sisters who must stand for The Name under great suffering grow in faith and love and close relationship with our precious Lord. They want us to receive such blessing.

    And when they had called for the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. So they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.
    (Acts 5:40-42 NKJV)

  3. ...praying for persecution upon brothers and sisters didn't set too well with me when i encountered it not too long ago. but i think God sure makes up for the loss or difference of it in other ways for those of us that don't have to contend with it because we still need to run to Him. often.
