 Today is the commemoration of 9/11 …
a sobering reminder that we are not an invincible people or nation. We are susceptible to attack even while bearing the reputation of being the strongest military power on earth.
We are not as strong as we often believe ourselves to be.
We are never as secure as we’d like to believe.
We are not in control of our own lives or the lives of others the way we’d like to suggest.
Towers are capable of collapsing.
Perceived strength can be a very great weakness.
The unimaginable can happen … in a moment.

When what you thought was strong in your life collapses and a "tower" falls ... reconsider who or what you’re placing you’re hope in.
Every relational, financial, physical, and emotional sphere of our lives is susceptible to change and collapse.
 We are mortal beings with frail shells that attest daily to our need for something stronger, greater, more sufficient than ourselves or others to meet the needs of our insufficiency and our lack.
We must hinge our hopes on the able and stable unchanging character of Jesus Christ and the indestructible, absolute authority and power of His word.
In Him there is hope, life, comfort and security.
In Him there is a strength that will hold you secure ... when towers fall.
We must daily commit our lives to the One who has promised He will never leave us or forsake us.
We must remind ourselves and others on a daily basis that trust placed in anything or anyone other than Jesus Christ is going to ultimately give way and simply serve to remind us that we must elevate our eyes and look to something more than what we see at present.
Our ultimate tower must be Jesus Christ.
He, alone, will remain the only Rock standing.
Assess and evaluate who and what you are placing your trust in … and commemorate today with an allegiance and commitment to return to the One who is sufficiently able to keep you standing and secure ...
when towers fall.

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”
2 Corinthians 4:7
