THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS BACK IN PRISON FOR TESTIFYING TO THE JEWS ABOUT JESUS (Acts 23). He was rejected by his brethren who he loved, and prayed would come to Christ. Jesus told Paul: “You testified of Me in Jerusalem. It didn’t work out the way you thought it would, so now you must testify in Rome.” Jesus took Paul out of his depression by calling him to put the past behind, and press on to what God had for him in the future. Christians must all do the same (Phil.3:14).
There may be times in your life when you have been forsaken by everyone. But Jesus will never leave you or forsake you. Paul was forsaken by most of his Jewish brothers, just as Jesus was, but the Lord, stood with him in those dark days of his life, and the Lord will always stand with you who love God
