Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. – 2 Tim 4:16

When the stuff hit the fan, Paul’s friends ran! But Paul didn’t hate the people who abandoned him. He prayed for them. He refused to let bitterness creep in, and prayed that God wouldn’t hold them accountable for their faults.

People in your life may leave your side when you need them most. Nobody’s perfect! Don’t hold it against them. Forgive them, and pray for them. Men will scatter; but Jesus will always stand by your side.

But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. – 2 Tim 4:17

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your strength. In my weakest moments, I know You are standing with me!
