“The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10, KJV).
The market can be turbulent. It can extremely volatile with large violent swings. Chaotic, confusing . . . crazy. During these conditions, if you need to be in the market (i.e., to hedge a long-term position, etc.) you need God as your refuge so as not to become disheartened.
Kutless, a Christian band, sings a song named “Strong Tower.” When you feel you are being torn apart by a chaotic market, you may gain comfort from “Strong Tower’s” lyrics:
In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You’re my refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunder’s all I hear
You speak softly to my soul
And a relevant part of the chorus is the following:
You are my strong tower
Shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
God’s voice is quiet at the center of the cyclone of life’s storms . . . the market’s storms. God speaks softly, and you have to become calm to hear His voice. But since He provides a fortress for your protection in times of turmoil, His voice echoes harmonically through the fortress, massaging your mind with tones of beauty.
