Five Minute Friday: Keep
I love that the keep served two purposes -- a place to dwell and a safe place to retreat to. In John 14:23, Jesus says, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him." How marvelous that if we keep His word and abide with Him, He will dwell with us!
Proverbs 18:10 says, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe." There is no question that a spiritual battle is raging around us as the day of the Lord approaches. I can think of no better place to be than dwelling in the safety and security of His love.
"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies." (Psalm 18:2-3)
