Daily Word: Run, Don’t Walk! Proverbs 18:10

Terri Gillespie Daily Word 2 Comments

The Name of ADONAI [the LORD] is a strong tower.
The righteous one runs into it and is set safely up high. Proverbs 18:10, TLV

 

Run, Don’t Walk!   We have a choice to run to the LORD at the first sight or sign of danger, fear, anger, need, want, loneliness, longing, temptation, desire, destruction — well, you get the idea.

We can call on Him or try to figure it out on our own.

I love this translation of this verse in Proverbs, especially: “The righteous one runs into it and is set safely up high.”

When we seek our Heavenly Father first — run to Him — we immediately change our perspective. Rather than focusing on the issues, we seek Him and that elevates our view of the situation.

The world always looks different from a higher perspective, most certainly our Creator’s perspective.

So, when we encounter a problem or challenge, run — don’t walk — to our Father who is in heaven.
