People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:12


2Ti 1:12 For which cause I also suffer these things. Because he was appointed "a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles" (2Ti 1:11). Compare Ac 22:21 Eph 3:1. That which I have committed to him against that day. His whole interests, his life, body, soul and spirit. He leaves all in God's hands with perfect confidence.

    God is good he tKe away my fear and doubt what's in my head. Afraid of making decision until the anxiety come. And I cry and pray to the Lord Almighty day and night. He show me his great love, through friends and prayers even his presents and until I saw the rainbow so crystal clear i front of my face. In Isaiah 54:9,10 he mention his promises and never ending love. Praise you God. Amen Aleluiah....

    I woke up midnight overwhelmed with fear and I remembered the words that God did not give us the spirit of fear in 2 Tim. So I thought the fear that woke me up was not from God, I claimed those words to conquer the fear, gave thanks to God and went back to sleep soundly.

    Apostle Paul full of Grace could not hide his feelings or Love for his Spiritual Son "Timothy" haven recognized the unwavering or unshakable faith of Timothy which He traced to his grandmother and his biological mother Eunice. However, Apostle Paul in his advise encourage Timothy not to consider his age, but rather depend on the Grace of God ( The God's ability). Make alive the gift of God in you.
