which is why I suffer as I do. 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.2 Timothy 1:12
Paul was not ashamed by the gospel. In fact, he was the opposite. He was confident in the gospel and the power that it holds. He was also confident in who God was. He knew that God would be faithful and deliver on His promises.
It can be difficult to stand for truth in a world that does not cling to truth. Spend some time in prayer today asking God to help you not be ashamed and to give you the confidence you need to live for Him.
A Prayer to Remember
Give me confidence to be able to speak truth and spread the gospel. Amen.
