God guards our trust

“That is why I am suffering here in prison. But I am not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return” (2 Timothy 1:12, NLT).

English: Toronto: TD Canada Trust Tower Every day, we put our trust in governments, banks and other institutions to guard our lives and valuables. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t, but knowing the risks and that we don’t have much of a choice, we continue to trust them, for the most part.

When we believe in the saving power and grace of Jesus, we are trusting him with the most valuable possession of all—our souls. How do we know we can trust him? He is the great I AM, who cannot lie, who keeps his promises and who loves us more than we know. Our trust grows as we get to know him better, which is why getting to know him is the most important thing we can do. In our uncertain world, knowing whom to trust is difficult, but one thing is certain—God can and will guard what we entrust to him.
