Hanging from the ceiling at Lubbock Junior Academy are red plates each with a long red cord hanging from it. Glued to the plate is a heart with the verse, from Psalm 91:14, “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.”

The long red cord represents the red cord Rahab hung outside of her home in the city of Jericho. When the Children of Israel took the city they knew to spare those inside of that house.

This red cord also represents our lifeline to God. We are to always keep that lifeline out so we can stay connected to our Father in Heaven. Our lifeline of prayers, and dedication to our Creator helps us remember that God knows our name, and He will deliver us, just like He did Rahab of Jericho.
