2 Timothy 4: 16-18

At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

A Thought

When we are in God’s will doing what he has called us to do, others may desert us but God will always be with us giving us strength to accomplish his purpose. God will rescue us from the attacks of the evil of this world. Our final destination will be safely in God’s heavenly kingdom with him. Remember, always pray and never give up.

Our Prayer

Father strengthen us by the power of your Holy Spirit and help us to always follow you even when no one will walk with us. This world is not our home. Our home will be with you throughout all eternity. Help us to always pray, proclaim the truth of your word and never give up. We ask in Jesus’ name, amen.
