Whom I Have Believed

One of the greatest times of testing of our faith comes when we find ourselves in the middle of a situation that we would have never volunteered for.



We spent last week looking at the providence of God. How it is at work (or seemingly is not at work) in our day-to-day. The moments where we are shaken to our very core with the cares/troubles of this life brings us to a place where our belief & faith in God's providence reveals what is truly guiding our lives.


In 2 Timothy 1:12 the Apostle Paul writes: "But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me."


Charles Spurgeon comments on this passage:

Paul does not say, "I know what I have believed," though that would have been true. He does not say, "I know when I have believed," though that would have been correct. Nor does he say, "I know how much I have believed," although he had well-weighed his faith. He does not even say, "I know in whom I have believed." He says expressly, "I know whom I have believed," as much as to say, "I know the person into whose hand I have committed my present condition and my eternal destiny. I know who he is, and I therefore, with-out any hesitation, leave myself in his hands."


Do you feel as if you can always trust God with your life despite the difficulties and hardships that you may go through? Do you share in the same confidence as written above? Have you given yourself without hesitation?
