God’s Hand Reached Down

2 Peter 2:9–10 says,“Then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. And especially those who walk according to the flesh and the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries.”

It can be so hard to live a godly life in today’s social environment, surrounded daily by immorality, rebellion against authority, foolish thinking, and evil speech. It can become a temptation to give in to its overwhelming influence.

However, in this chapter, scripture gives us a picture of God’s protection. God’s hand reached down to one man, Lot, who had little strength and led him to safety. Take the hand of God today. Jesus will help you.

My brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.
