"The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe." Proverbs 18:10
There is a time for everything. There is a time when we are to "stand". But there is a time to "run". We don't run from the enemy and neither do we run from the battle. The battle is the Lord's and it has already been won. The enemy that we would run from has already been defeated. Jesus defeated the enemy and has given us the victory. David didn't run from Goliath, he knew the Lord would deliver him into his hand. We don't run from our "Goliaths" either, the Lord has already delivered them into our hands.
While we don't run from the enemy, we do run when in times of trouble, times of grief, times of pain, times of confusion, and times of heartache, but we are not running "from" something but instead "to" someone. "The righteous run into". What are you going through this morning? What is happening in your life? Are you running to the Lord because of it? Or are you standing still hoping things will change? Are you doing nothing because you don't think it will do any good? Are you sitting down waiting for something better to "fall into your lap"? In this case, if you are standing, sitting or leisurely strolling, you are assuming the wrong position. You should be running and kneeling.
When in trouble, we run to the Lord. We run into His presence. He is that very presence help in time of trouble. Once we run into His presence, we then kneel before Him. We kneel before Him acknowledging that we need Him. We need His help. We need His strength. We need His wisdom. We need His love and mercy. We need His truth to guide us. We need His embrace to comfort us. We need His word to give us clarity. We need Him. So we need to run into Him.
Have a great day. When you are in need, assume the right position-- running and kneeling.
