2 Tim 1:12 

"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."

When Paul says he is not ashamed, the idea here is he is not ashamed of having trusted in Whom he has believed, Jesus Christ.

Paul is very confident in this belief.

Not that he has confidence in his ability to believe, but his confidence is in the One in which he believes, that He is able to keep all that Paul has given Him, which is Paul himself.

If we, like Paul, were to place our confidence in the ability of Christ to keep us, like we did when we placed our confidence in the ability of Christ to save us, we would also have great assurance "against that day".
