Today I Run to My Keeper!

Run To the Tower:

Proverbs 18:10 (NKJV) The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.

Psalm 121:5 (NKJV)
5 The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand.

Here the preserving One, who had been spoken of by pronouns in the two previous verses, is distinctly named—Jehovah is thy keeper. What a mint of meaning lies here: the sentence is a mass of bullion, and when coined and stamped with the king’s name it will bear all our expenses between our birthplace on earth and our rest in heaven. Here is a glorious person—Jehovah, assuming a gracious office and fulfilling it in person,—Jehovah is thy keeper, in behalf of a favoured individual—thy, and a firm assurance of revelation that it is even so at this hour—Jehovah is thy keeper. Can we appropriate the divine declaration? If so, we may journey onward to Jerusalem and know no fear; yea, we may journey through the valley of the shadow of death and fear no evil. (The Treasury of David.)

Climb the Tower and Confess:

I am kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. I Peter 1:5

If you have trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are KEPT by the power of God. What does this mean? This word “kept” is derived from the Greek word phroureo {froo-reh’-o} which means “to guard or protect by military guard; to keep by watching.” Our life is garrisoned by God and He stands as the sentinel over us all our days. Our salvation is under God’s constant care and protection.
(Mattoon’s Treasures)
