Daily Bible Reading “The Name of the LORD is a Strong Tower” (Proverbs 18:10-18)

Proverbs The Name of the LORD is a Strong TowerThe Name of the LORD is a Strong Tower

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 18:10-18. We are reminded in this Scripture that the name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and are safe.

The rich person’s wealth is their strong city, and as an high wall in their own conceit.

Before destruction the heart of people is haughty, and before honor is humility.

A person who answers a matter before they hear it, it is folly and shame unto them. This Proverb reminds us that we need to be better listeners. Have you ever started to answer a person before you heard the whole question?

The spirit of a person will sustain their infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

The heart of the prudent gets knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

A person’s gift makes room for them, and brings them before great people.

Those who are first in their own cause seems just; but their neighbor comes and searches him.

The lot causes contentions to cease, and parts between the mighty.

As we think of the name of the LORD being compared to a strong tower, what does that tell us? The LORD is our protector and as a strong tower He can protect us from the enemy. When the righteous run to Him they are safe. He is our fortress.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 18:10-18

10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
16 A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

 

Things to think about:

  • What is the name of the LORD compared to in this Scripture? How does it compare?
  • What does a rich person consider to be their strong city?
  • How is a person blessed by their gift?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that the name of the LORD is a strong tower. Help us to run to You in our times of need. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

The Book of Esther: A Story of Love and Favor by Deborah H. Bateman is a Daily Bible Reading study of the book of Esther from the Old Testament of the Bible.

In the book of Esther, Esther was adopted by her cousin Mordecai. In a series of events and through fasting, prayer and God’s favor Esther was placed in a position to save the Jewish people. Esther was adopted by her cousin Mordecai, who told her maybe she was born for such a time as this.

God puts us all in circumstances where He can use us to further His kingdom and give Him glory, if we are willing and obedient. Esther found her purpose for life. Like Esther you were born for such a time as this.
