There’s no Bullet Fast Enough
2 Timothy 4:17-18
But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength so that I might preach the Good News in its entirety for all the Gentiles to hear. And he rescued me from certain death.
Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.
2019 was a pretty great year if you ask me. Like every other year, there were highs and lows, but glory to God we are still standing non the less. One thing that stood out this year for me in particular was how God kept me. There was so much crisis around the world this year. In some parts of the world, I heard about natural disasters that swept through cities. In some other parts I heard about issues with banditry and kidnapping, while in some other parts I heard about riots and unrest, but somehow I’m still standing here in one piece.
Initially I was tempted to credit my safety to my wits and smart movements, then God reminded me that I’m not actually that smart. When I read the key scripture, it became clear to me how I’ve been safe all along. It was no other person than God who preserved me. Apostle Paul spoke so confidently about Gods ability to protect. It is astounding. Go through that scripture again. Apostle said Paul said God rescued him from certain death. That means he was surely supposed to die; but God kept him. When you read the stories of Apostle Paul, you’ll get what he was talking about. God kept him.
God has been keeping you, and He’ll continue to do so. You should be bold like Apostle Paul and walk around with that confidence. I usually tell myself, there’s no bullet fast enough to harm me. I’ll keep doing God’s will on this earth, and I’ll thrive in it till the very end. Thank God for His preservation this year, and look forward to more of it in the coming years. God bless you.
Thank you Jesus for your preservation and protection. I am even more confident in it and I trust that in it, I’ll stay walking in your will.
