…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
What a statement of faith! It’s not about trusting in who we are or in what we do or in what we have. This is all about unabashedly, unreservedly believing in the faithfulness of the One who we know! This is all about intimately knowing the One we can absolutely and eternally trust with our very lives!
This is all about a powerful love relationship with the One who is faithful forever.
The sovereign God of all creation has given the life of His One and Only Son Jesus Christ for our salvation. And God did this all out of His love for each and every one of us.
And for us who have believed in Him, our Mighty Lord has…
Rescued us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of the Son God loves,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Once our Lord Jesus has delivered us from condemnation to forgiveness, from darkness to light, there is nothing and no one, no circumstance, no challenge, no power on earth, no power from heaven, no power from hell that could ever take us out of God’s love grip He has on our life! We are God’s beloved children forever. God’s love is trustworthy, faithful and unfailing!
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
Our God holds us eternally and is able to guard what we have entrusted to him. And what is it that we as God’s children should trust over to Him?
All of our lives.
All that we are in body, mind and soul.
All that we do in thought, word and action.
All that we have in every possession, every priority, every opportunity.
Every relationship we have.
Every circumstance we face.
Our God, the One who we know and believe as our Savior and Lord, is able to guard all that we entrust to Him! Our God is love (1 John 4:16).
And love can be trusted because love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8).
Our God is faithful! I am convinced!
In love, peace and purposeful passion,
