[adsenseyu1]2 Timothy 4 vs 16,17 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.
Have you ever felt disappointed when someone let’s you down. Have you ever been let down by someone. Maybe a close friend, a relative, your own church member? The main people who you may expect to be there for you, can let you down at times.
Paul is saying here that when he needed people the most, they all deserted him. Everybody had deserted him. Not one stood by him. However he said that the LORD STOOD WITH HIM AND GAVE HIM STRENGTH!!
My friends once the Lord is standing with us we can make it through any and every circumstance. If the whole world is standing with us but God is not standing with us, we will fall. We need the Lord to be by our side. He promises that he will never leave us nor forsake us.
People may let you down, friends will let you down but God will always be by your side.
No matter what you may be going through right now, I want you to know that the LORD IS STANDING WITH YOU!!!
