This morning I asked the Lord to speak to me and I noticed the tall tower pictured in the upper left hand corner. When I saw it, that still small voice whispered “strong tower.” As I kept driving, I noticed how mighty and magnificent the towers were. Proverbs 18:10 says “the name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Psalm 61:3 tells us “for you have been a shelter and a refuge for me, a strong tower against the adversary.” What an affirmation that I need to remain in Him and He will provide all my needs..and that He will never leave me, fail me, or forsake me!
When I shared this with a friend she said she saw a cell phone tower. She also saw a lot of bolts and hard work was needed to go into making it strong. She stated the bolts, nails, and materials need to be strong because the final structure needs to be strong enough to with hold a storm. It needs to be unshakeable and unbreakable. Each time a bolt is removed, it needs to replaced with Christ. If not, it will will leave a gapping hole and something will come along to shake it and it and will be easily broken. How cool is that? If my foundation is strong in Him, then I will be able to withstand anything that comes against me!
The next morning, I saw the structure in the bottom left side of the photo. All of the power lines were linked to it. What a neat image of how we can do nothing in our own power…we all need to be plugged in and connected to the one and only TRUE power source! If not, we are useless. But with Him, all things are possible and we can thrive in this world that is not our home!
