The Lord Is Your Defense

16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. 17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. (2 Timothy 4:16-17)

It is a blessing to know that when you stand with God, He will stand with you. If your friends are living contrary to the ways of Christ, don’t follow your friends but stand with God. If our family is living contrary to the ways of Christ, don’t follow your family but stand with God. Men will leave you. Men will let you down. Men will tell you that they will be behind you but when unexpected trouble comes, they tend to go the opposite way. Some will tell you that they will be with you and really have no intention of owning up to their word. Family members will desert your. Friends will desert you. Helpers will desert you. But the Lord will stand with you. He will also strengthen you. Finally he will deliver you from any trouble that comes up. Know this with a surety, the battle is not yours but it is the Lord’s. The Lord is your defense.
