MORNINGTIME 2451
 
And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:18. Let's read this again with a little more clarity. "And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work (that I may do),  "And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work (that may or will be done unto me), and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: (He will keep me unto the day He calls me Home), to whom be glory for ever and ever". Amen. To illustrate this in a more personal way, EVERYTHING the Lord does, or allows to be done unto me is purely for my good. And everything I do to me outside of the Will of the Lord is meant for my destruction. If my heart is right before the Lord and I'm doing my best to Obey Him, as pitiful as that may be, He's not letting me go to run off to do my own thing. As I learn to Trust Him more and more, and distrust Him less and less, THAN I'M HIS AND HE IS MINE AND HE'LL NEVER LET ME GO. Oh yes, there will be great discipline and patience of a Heavenly magnitude towards me from The Father, but He's not letting me go. Yes, I still have free will to do what I want, BUT MY HEART IS MOVING TOWARDS FULL OBEDIENCE TO HIM, as the Lord is changing my heart to be more and more in tune with His. We all start off in the sewer, and Christ is drawing each one of us towards Perfection, and this lifelong process is called, "Growing in the Lord". Do you have any kids? Do you Love them only when they're good, and hate them when they're bad? Or do you Love them ALL THE TIME and work things out as they grow up ??? God Loves You unconditionally and will to the day you die. If you love Him, He'll take that puny little starter love and grow it into a Love that holds True into all Eternity. Daddy God LOVES ALL HIS, better than we can comprehend here on this side, and the fun part is learning just how deep His Love really goes. Learn that, and GREATLY, Be Blessed.
