Under Gods Command

2nd Timothy 4:17 But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. 

With his mentor in prison and his church in turmoil, Timothy was probably not feeling very brave.  Paul may have been subtly telling Timothy that the Lord had called Timothy to preach, and would give him the courage to continue to do so.

Lets Bring it Home: God always gives us the strength to do what he has commanded.  This strength may not be evident, however, until we step out in faith and actually begin doing the task.
