“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12
I heard of a lady who had memorized so many verses of Scripture over time that she quoted them back to the Lord in praise to His name.
When she grew old and began to lose her memory, she could only remember one verse, our passage today: “For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” She would quote it over and over.
Soon her memory deteriorated even more, and all she could remember was just the phrase “committed unto Him.” It brought her much comfort. Finally she came to a place where all she could say was “Him.”
You can distill the Bible down to that one word, “Him.” Can you tune all of your life to that one note of praise? Him.
