Do we "doubt" our Salvation? HE has set Eternity in our hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11). We want to believe but we doubt we know how. You have instilled in your heart a passion for more? Do you want an understanding of something beyond your mind? It is a special unsatisfiable part of you that needs understanding beyond this world, it is SPIRITUAL understanding. Do you find yourself "hating" sin (this is good, you are beginning to hate the things GOD hates)? Do you search for WHO JESUS IS and why HE died for our sins? Have you prayed (no matter how feeble it may seem) to know GOD? Have you repented your sins and begin to read about GOD'S promises (no matter how uncompromisable they may seem) and been encouraged just a little as you find they are True? Is your desire for Truth beyond anything else within your inner most Being? Are you beginning to know that JESUS not only lived on this earth but because of all of the Prophecies verifying (some written 600 years before it happened) HIS dying for our sins you are beginning to KNOW this is True? Are you beginning to Trust something greater than yourself and discovering this is GOD? Are you absolutely astounded that JESUS was raised from the dead (as verified by more than 500 witnesses, to help you in your unbelief) which confirms GOD'S Scriptures? Have you ever done something you did not really want to do (Faith begins) and later found out it brought JOY beyond this world? Have you prayed this prayer, Psalm 119:169, "Let my cry come near before THEE, O'LORD: give me understanding according to THY WORD..." Have you found you are more discerning of right and wrong? The SPIRIT is in you and you want not only to follow JESUS but you want to be like HIM! Did you repent and ask GOD to forgive you and know you are forgiven, did you tell HIM you know JESUS is HIS SON, did you tell HIM you know JESUS rose from the dead? Then there is no reason to doubt because SALVATION IS IMMEDIATE, UNDERSTANDING IS GRADUAL.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
