Who is Your Roof?

The name of the Lord is a strong tower;The righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10 (NKJV)

Yesterday, on the drive home, I saw a truck with an advertisement for their company on it. The statement said, “Above all, you need a roof.”

Yes, it was a roofing company truck. I thought the saying was cute. It was accurate and it caught my eye, as I am certain it did for many others unfamiliar with the company.

As we continued down the road I thought about that statement on the truck. Yes, we each want and need a roof over our heads. Roofs provide protection and cover. They shelter us from storms, wind, the elements of nature. We can easily move around our home without the worry of branches falling on us, or being covered in leaves in the fall and pollen in the spring. Birds don’t fly around us moving from chair to chair. Squirrels don’t come in looking for food to hide away. Roofs do their job.

We care for our roofs. We notice them. We pray they hold up as roof repairs are not what we want.

Above all you need a roof.

Definitions of roof are: the cover of a building, the highest point, an upper limit, a covering structure of any part of the body. Synonyms of roof are: shelter, umbrella, shade, shield, cover.

What struck me yesterday on the interstate was a question that came to my mind, Who is my roof?

Psalm 91:1-4, “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;  he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.” (NLT)

God is my roof. My shelter. My protector. My refuge. He will keep me safe. I will trust Him. He will rescue me and keep me safe. I can’t think of a better roof, with an eternal guarantee.
