"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."
The name of the Lord is a strong tower - The name of the Lord may be taken for the Lord Himself; He is a strong tower, a refuge, and place of complete safety, to all that trust in Him. What a strong fortress He is to His besieged, persecuted, tempted, afflicted followers.
God's sufficiency for the saints: His name is a strong tower for them, in which they may take rest when they are weary and take sanctuary when they are pursued, where they may be lifted up above their enemies and fortified against them.
The strength of this tower is enough to protect them; the name of the Lord is all that by which He has made Himself known as God, and our God, not only His titles and attributes, but His covenant and all the promises of it; these make up a tower, a strong tower, impenetrable, impregnable, for all God's people.
