God is Our Ultimate Security

Proverbs 18:10 {KJV}

‘‘The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous runneth into it and is safe’’.

Dearly beloved, I bring you greetings in the name that is above every other name, Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God and our soon coming King. As you are no doubt aware, we live in a day and hour when evil is multiplying and many are at a loss as to what to do to stay preserved. I come your way this morning with an assurance from the word of God that there is ample provision for your protection and safety. God is your ultimate security. His name is a strong tower. You can run into it and find safety from the wiles of the enemy. His name guarantees your protection and security at all

While we thank God for all the security tips and apparatus put in place by the wisdom of God, beloved, understand that unless the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. In this day and hour of global insecurity, let me assure you that as a child of God you can run into His name and you are safe. Yes, you can be safe from all the arrows that fly by day and the pestilence that walketh in noonday. Beloved, His name is a strong tower. The word ‘Tower’ suggests a building or structure higher than its diameter and very high relative to its surroundings. A Tower stands tall and can be seen from afar. A tower is a symbol of strength and refuge. With the name of the Lord, not only are you protected, but you are also projected to a high level of prominence. Just like a tower stands taller than every other structure around it, so God wants you to stand tall in the face of challenges. This is the position God wants you to operate from.

Beloved, I am not talking about being proud, but being confident that no matter what happens, your safety is guaranteed. Today, many believers just sing about the name of God, but do not really understand the power in His name. For instance ‘Jehovah Shalom’ simply means the God of Peace. It means you can experience the peace of God even in times of crisis. Your marriage can experience peace. You can have peace when everyone is confused – Shalom! nothing broken, nothing missing. Your God is also known as The ‘Almighty’ or El–Shaddai. Daniel and the 3 Hebrew boys had an understanding of the Almightiness of God and so refused to bow because they believed He would come through for them. What a revelation!

Child of God, just knowing the various names of God is not enough – His name should go beyond being a mere means of identification to being a personal revelation. His name is not one of those ‘fancy titles’ that men love to acquire. His Name is an eye opener to His divine abilities, attributes and virtues. For instance, while the world is talking about global economic recession, you can meditate on what the name ‘Jehovah Jireh’ stands for. When you walk in this understanding, you will have a mindset of plenty in the midst of scarcity and famine. You will have a knowing that Jehovah Jireh is able to supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by

When you identify yourself with the Name of God, you are ushered into a world of endless possibilities. All that blind Bartimeaus knew about the Lord was that he was a Healer. With that limited revelation, he cried out and got his healing. Are you down or feeling sorry for yourself about an issue that seems to have defied human solutions? Brace yourself because El–Elyon-The Most High God is about to elevate you. If God could elevate Abraham even at an old age, then it can never be too late for you. I encourage you to latch on to the name of the Lord and hang in there because you are about to be celebrated.

It is however, important to note that not everyone can access the safety in the name of the Lord. While it is true the scripture says that the name of the Lord is a strong tower, it is also important to note that only the righteous can run into it. Therefore, in this day of evil, you cannot afford to live your life without Jesus. A life without Jesus is a life of crisis. If you have not yet made Him the Lord of your life, this is the time to do so. I encourage you to make peace with God today through His Son Jesus and your life will never remain the same

As for those who are already in Christ, let me encourage you to continually dwell in the safety of His presence. Remember that His name is not a ‘magic wand’ that you can pull out at will. God is not looking for visitors who come occasionally, but for sons and daughters who will dwell. Always remember that in God’s secret place, you become inaccessible to what the devil is doing. From that vantage position, you can access the unlimited blessings of God and I can assure you that, head or tail, you will win. I declare that evil will continually bow before you and the wicked shall bow at your gate. I

In His Royal Service
