As per Gita 10.10 does Krishna help only those who serve him constantly and with love or does he help all his devotees?

From Achinta

I always have this doubt about Gita 10.10. In this particular verse Krsna specifically uses words like “satata yuktanam”, “priti purvakam”. Constantly engaged in serving me with love. Such is generally for the pure devotees and not for practicing devotees. So I develop the doubt that does Krsna really help as he poibts out in this verse. Is it meant for all or just for the pure devotees? Please clarify prabhuji.

    Hare krishna, it is true prabhuji that lord Krishna interacts with everybody, first of all if any soul wants to do any activity it cannot be possible to do it by the minuscule soul , lord , as the Bhagwatam says gives power to the senses, mind , the total 10 organs of action and perception sb controlled by demigods , BUT AGAIN LORD KRISHNA “SARVA KARANA KARANAM ” he is the primival cause ,sanctioning everything from maya their army of demigods , the 10 senses , mind , intelligence, nothing can function independently unless lord as parmatma gives power to perform from within and felicitates its function, This is one aspect by which we understand that lord interacts surely with everyone , he acts with the devotees by the agency of yog maya we know that , but also he interacts with the non devotee by the agency of maya “krishno bhuulia jiva anidir bahir mukh atheiva maya tahare dai samsare dukh. maya interscta as a punishing rod to get the conditioned souls to krishna consciousness. That way it we can see directly and indirectly , he asserts control over one and all. We also know from scriptures that maya is also controlled finally by the lord as is too his own energy “maya adhaksaje na prakritim suyete sa chara charam” and also” mama maya. ” my material energy called maya .Often a normal hindu knowns this sloke of gita Text 8

    To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.
    No but that is the external reason of his appearance to kill the wicked , protect the demigods and the pious ,In Bhagwatam Lord Bramha who is also a top devotee and one of the souls very dear to lord gives the internal reason of lord’s advent,

    TEXT 11:14: 37
    prapan’cam nishprapan’co ‘pi vidambayasi bhû-tale prapanna-janatânanda- sandoham prathitum prabho
    TRANSLATION
    My dear master, although You have nothing to do with material existence, You come to this earth and imitate material life just to expand the varieties of ecstatic enjoyment for Your surrendered devotees.
    He interacts with devotees and non devotees in many different ways appearing in the species of animals , plants and seemingly appearing in human form , but the main purpose is to recover those in the mode of goodness to the level of pure goodness.”vissuddha satva”.
