WALLS PDF Print

There are walls, and then there are walls.

The issue of walls came up repeatedly in the recent campaign and is in our news again.  Our president intends on building one.  This wall, we’re told, will work to slow the flow of illegal drugs coming across our southern boarder while helping to regulate immigration.

We hear much of walls within God’s word – as they are the main source of protection for any city of importance.  Jericho was known for its thick impenetrable walls (whose protection proved to be impotent in the face of God).  Jerusalem felt invincible behind her thick walls.  Sadly as they were carried away captive they looked back upon a field of stones made by the crumbled walls.

Walls, in God’s Word, are often used as a picture – helping us visualize His divine protection.  A person is said to have strong walls if he lives his life under control – depending upon God to be his shield and defender.

“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”  Proverbs 25:28 (ESV)

Paradoxically we build our walls strong through surrender.  By placing your trust in the Creator you allow Him to be your defense!

“He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.  You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day.”  Psalms 91:4-5 (ESV)

Build your walls high, through a continuously deeper relationship with your Savior.

– Dale
