Patience during Trials

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


As Paul faced very difficult circumstances, he was almost near to death and also many of those he had led to the Lord abandoned him. But he was confident that the Lord would not abandon him! He had committed his life to the Lord. That Lord would ensure that Paul life would not be wasted away without meeting His purpose in Paul. Paulís life, his future, and his eternal destiny were entrusted to the Lord. He was confident that they were also secure with the Lord. He believed with every fiber of his being that on a special day known only to God, Jesus will return and every knee will bow and Paul's faith in the Lord will be joyously validated.


[ Prayer for the Day ]

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