guard what is entrusted

2 Timothy 1:12 That is why I am suffering as I am.  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.

Paul was never ashamed of preaching Jesus after Jesus had revealed himself to Paul.  Paul knew exactly who Jesus was, as well as knowing Father God and the Holy Spirit.  He trusted Jesus explicitly, no matter what his circumstances.

Imprisoned.
Ship wrecked.
Beaten.
Hunger.

Among so much other hardship.

And he was not ashamed of the gospel.

He always preached Jesus

Boldly.
With confidence.
With authority.

Telling the truth of Jesus

and Paul entrusted his life to Jesus

He knew Jesus was able to guard what was entrusted to Him

I have that same promise, that same hope

I can entrust to Jesus my day, what I am going through, my struggles, fears, anxieties, etc.

I entrust to you Lord Jesus

my marriage
my children
my jobs/finances
my safety/provision
me/my life

I know you are more than capable of guarding us

for your glory and honor

I am convinced of it

Thank you Jesus

I love you!
