The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
Solomon, David and Bathsheba’s second son, had a reputation for being the wisest wise guy in the world. After inheriting the throne from his father, he accomplished two extraordinary feats (other than marring 1000 women lol), (1) construct the long-awaited and opulent Temple his father had envisioned years previously and (2) unify the northern and southern tribes of Israel.
In this proverb, however, Solomon’s wisdom envisions God as a strong impenetrable and unassailable tower. The tower imagery suggests that God himself is the ultimate Tower of TO WHICH his people can always run and not be destroyed by their trials, tribulations, and troubles.
So if you are feeling threatened by someone today, run to the Tower! If you are feeling insecure over world events, run to the Tower! If you have already run to everything else and have been disappointed, run to the Tower! Run to the Tower and be safe, once and for all, and forevermore!
