I am suffering … Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.

— 2 Timothy 1:12

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

As Paul faced extremely challenging circumstances near the end of his life, many he had led to the Lord had abandoned him. Nevertheless, he was confident that the Lord would not abandon him! He had committed his life to Jesus as Lord, and the Lord would ensure that Paul’s investment would not be wasted. His life, future, and eternal destiny were entrusted to the Lord. He was confident they were also secure in the Lord (Romans 8:32-39). With every fiber of his being, Paul believed that on a specific day known only to God the Father, Jesus the Son would return, every knee would bow, and Paul’s faith in the Lord would be joyously validated. I am convinced Paul’s conviction was on the mark. My life and future are based on that conviction. My prayer is that you share this same conviction, too!

My Prayer…

Almighty God, I believe, but please strengthen my faith. No matter what I endure, may my confidence in you will remain firm and my hope may remain vibrant. I entrust all I am and hope to be into your hands. I believe you will bring me through whatever lies ahead and guide me into your glorious presence with great joy. In Jesus’ glorious name, I pray. Amen.
