God Knows [2 Peter 2]

9then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,10and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,11whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.

God has us all sorted out. He knows who are His and who are growing in relationship with Him and He knows who are playing games. And He knows how to protect us and rescue us right up until the end. Those that walk in unrighteousness, He will keep for punishment in that day of judgment. Meanwhile, know that there are false prophets and teachers among us who would lead us astray. God warned us through Peter so that we would be careful concerning those we listen to and those we follow while we are here on earth.

We praise you God that you have us all sorted out and know how to keep us safe until the end. Cause us to discern those who are false and to reject their ways. Cause us to have excellent teachers who will stimulate us to grow closer to You.
