The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.– Proverbs 18:10 (NIV)
I had the radio on yesterday throughout the house while I was cleaning. The popular song "Run To You" by Lady Antebellum cycled through once within the two hours or so that I was listening. As I was singing the lyrics really echoed what is talked about in Proverbs 18:10. In our time of need while we are running from fear or filled with anxiety we naturally turn to the Lord. Why? Because like a consoling parent He is there to help us and is always willing to relieve pressure from our burdensome hearts.
It was amazing to me how quickly such a popular song like "Run to You" could be transformed into a prayer just by swapping out some endearing terms could be substituted by "Lord." Try it out next time you would like to sing His praises or are running to him in your time of need.
