2 Timothy 4:18-21
“And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen! Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus. Erastus stayed in Corinth, but Trophimus I have left in Miletus sick. Do your utmost to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, as well as Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brethren.”
-Apostle Paul requests Timothy to visit him in the dungeon before winter where he was held prisoner by the Romans. It was a time Paul was faced by difficulties but still had faith in God; in the hope of being delivered from all evil works. He was faced by the sad reality that death is inevitable having finished his work, but held on to the grace of God which yields our salvation, in the hope of being preserved for the heavenly kingdom; thus giving all the glory to God forever. We are often faced by the same realities of winter but are reminded to always hold on to Christ Who died for the whole world so that we who believe in Him may be restored & have eternal life with Him.
You are holy & exulted Lord King of glory now & forever. Thank You for dying for us on the cross for us all that at the end of time we may live with You forever. Uphold us Lord when we are faced by difficulties & help us to accept Your holy will in our lives. Help us to commit our lives firmly in You Lord for You are the only One who knows our fears & troubles, & will deliver us from them all. You are ever present with us Father, we place all our trust in You Lord Who all glory & honour belongs; forever & ever. Amen
