Run to Me

Run to Me
November 1, 2016

Read: Proverbs 18:4–12
Bible in a Year: Jeremiah 24–26; Titus 2

The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.—Proverbs 18:10

During a walk at a local park, my children and I encountered a couple of unleashed dogs. Their owner didn’t seem to notice that one of them had begun to intimidate my son. My son tried to shoo the dog away, but the animal only became more intent on bothering him.

Eventually, my son panicked. He bolted several yards into the distance, but the dog pursued him. The chase continued until I yelled, “Run to me!” My son doubled back, calmed down, and the dog finally decided to make mischief somewhere else.

There are moments in our lives when God calls to us and says, “Run to Me!” Something troubling is on our heels. The faster and farther we go, the more closely it pursues us. We can’t shake it. We’re too afraid to turn and confront the trouble on our own. But the reality is that we aren’t on our own. God is there, ready to help and comfort us. All we have to do is turn away from whatever scares us, and move in His direction. His Word says, “The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Prov. 18:10). —Jennifer Benson Schuldt

Dear Jesus, You are the Prince of Peace. I need the kind of peace that only You can give. Help me to turn to You when I am troubled.

God is our refuge in times of trouble.

INSIGHT: The Proverbs are a collection of wise sayings to guide us through the choices and life-decisions we face. The majority of these wise statements are attributed to Solomon, whose wisdom was greater than “all the people of the East” (see 1 Kings 4:29-33). Ultimately, however, the Source of all wisdom is our wise God. And the good news is that He makes that wisdom available to us—not only in Scripture texts like today’s reading from Proverbs, but also in response to our prayers. James says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (James 1:5). Wisdom is available, if we will only ask!
