Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional January 10, 2024
For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy.
Recommended Reading: 2 Samuel 22:2-3
In ancient walled cities a tower was often erected at a corner of the walls or over a city gate. It served as a refuge—a place from which to defend the city from attacks and to protect inhabitants. (See Judges 9:50-55.) A strong tower became a metaphor for God as a place of refuge and protection: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10).
Today, our cities don’t have walls or towers. Our enemies are spiritual and circumstantial more than physical. So where do we run when we feel we are under attack or experiencing trouble? We do spiritually what people did physically in the Old Testament—we flee to our spiritual tower which is God Himself. In due course, the Israelites began to refer to God as their “strong tower” and “fortress.” His covenant promises and love were what they depended on for protection and comfort. The same is true for us today.
The strength and protection of God are found in His promises to us. Embrace God and His Word; put your faith in Him by trusting His promises.
A sovereign Protector I have, unseen, yet forever at hand.

If you’re worrying, if you’re praying from a place of doubt, defeat, “God, why is this happening? When is it going to work out?” That’s going to limit you. Pray from a place of victory. Pray what God promised you.
You’re not going to stay strong by begging God, by asking again and again, by worrying, complaining, “God, where are You?” You grow strong by thanking God that it’s on the way.
When you’re always thanking God, bragging on His goodness, talking about how great He is, that’s when you’re going to see His favor in amazing ways. You don’t have to keep asking again and again. Make the switch and start thanking Him for what He promised.
You went to God with your request. Now add the thanksgiving. Believe that it’s already done. From now on, no more begging God for the same thing. “Father, thank You that I am free. Thank You that I’m whole. Thank You that the power in me is greater than what’s trying to stop me.
Thanking God is your faith at work. When He hears praises coming up, blessings will come down. That’s when He’ll dispatch angels and set miracles into motion.
