2 Timothy 4

2 Timothy 4:16 at my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. 17 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. 18 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. 

This morning my devo took me to 2 Timothy 4.  As I was reading this morning it made me think about the times when I am going through stuff and I feel like I am all alone.  Maybe I am alone.  Even though I have many friends I am not letting them in so they don’t know.  There are times I believe when it is just you and the Lord.  You have to rely on Him and not your friends to get through whatever you are going through.  That usually for me is when I get a revelation from the Lord.  I think so many times we want to hear what everyone has to say because we don’t like what we are hearing from the Lord.  We forget that radical obedience always precedes the miraculous.  If we just stay the course and trust what we are hearing, we will be delivered.  18 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.  If I didn’t know better I would say this is a promise.  So whatever you are going through today ………. Trust Him and He will rescue you from every evil attack.

What I had to go through two days ago was very hard.  I heard the Lord back in December but I thought I knew better.   (Radical dis- obedience always precedes mistakes.)  So I rebelled for 7 weeks not fun and caused me a lot of heart ache.   I had to let someone go from my company.  Someone I deeply care for.  It was one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make in a long time.  I knew it was right though because as soon as I said I cannot work you anymore I felt instant peace.  My heart still hurts though.  I know the Lord has a bigger purpose and once again I do not understand.  I will someday.

Bless you today and walk as sons and daughters
