All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Hello once more, my dear brothers and sisters in my Lord Jesus Christ. I have posted before that I do suffer from depression and OCD, both give me hollow feelings and plague me with intrusive thoughts and excessive worries, especially about God and Jesus, and my connection with them....

There has been one word that has kept popping into my mind, and has caused me much stress and to pray over and over for forgiveness for that.... That word would be "no". I have feared it meant like saying no to Jesus, which is something I do not want to do....I pray to Jesus over and over for forgiveness for that thought and ask to get rid of it, and to tell Him that I accept and love Him, and that He is my Savior, Lord, and Master, and say the Prayer for Salvation many times a day with a stained heart. I keep praying to also have Jesus keep me as His, no matter what..... despite how many times that thought keeps coming back....

I get so upset with this empty feeling in my heart and that awful word stuck in my head....I want Jesus to stay in my life and in my soul forever. I do not ever want Him to leave me. Am I just being all upset over nothing? I really belong to Jesus, right? Please help.

With Love in my Savior Jesus,

Cheyenne Moon Willow.

Okay, this is a struggle that I have experienced. These are lies from the devil. he doesnt want you to think you are saved. Please understand...if you believe in Jesus...if you have faith that He died for you...then that is it...you are saved. That is the truth! The rest are lies. When you have those thoughts...rebuke the devil in the holy name of Jesus. My bible couselor has encouraged me to memorize and/or read certain passages. She has also told me that fear is a sin (because I am not trusting God) that I must train my mind out of obedience to TRUST HIM. 2 Corinthians 10:5 is a very good one for me. Romans 8:28, 29. 2 Timothy 1:7. Psalm 94:18,19. Phillipians 4:6-7. 1 John 5:4-5. Revelation 12:11. Romans 12:2. F.E.A.R. False Evidence that Appears Real. 1 John 4:18. Proverbs 3:5-6 very good one. 1 John 1:8-10. Proverbs 3:25-26. Romans 12:2. 2 Peter 1:3. Titus 2:11 Isaiah 26:3 very good one...okay well they are all good. Isaiah 57:15 about courage. Be thankful Isaiah 53:4. Hebrews 6:18-19. John 8:12. John 6:35. Psalm 62:5-8. Psalm 34:4-5. Hebrews 13:5,6. Jeremiah 29:13. Hebrews 2:13,14. Romans 8:15. Write out these verses and write out what they mean to you, what you think God is saying to you. Okay...you must discipline your mind for godliness. The devil tells you lies...then you make the choice to believe them and then you think about them....which causes you to doubt your salvation...and prevents you from trusting God. This is not for His glory...and we are to live for His glory. But take heart...because the Lord has taught me to overcome. He is teaching me how to discipline my mind...and I have much less doubt...and so much more trust in Him now. Take these bible verse to heart. Believe them....Ask Him to transform you into a woman of faith. Put the effort forward to train your mind for Him. You ARE saved. Here are some bible verses that I want you to look over. Write them out in a journal...and then write down a prayer to God how thankful you are for these truths....and when you are struggling go back to your journal...you must put an effort forward...empowered by the Holy Spirit to free yourself from the lies and replace them with the truth of God's Word. It has the power to demolish strongholds. Psalm 103:12....Isaiah 43:25.....Isaiah 53:6...Romans 4:7,8...Romans 8:1.....Romans 4:7-8....Psalm 130:3-4.....Isaiah 1:18....Isaiah 38:17....Ephesians 1:7...Collossians 2:13,14....these are the TRUTH. contact me on here if you need any help, okay. Love you sister. I will be praying for you. Thank You dear Jesus for Your powerful Truth....Thank you Lord for Your love...Thank You Lord that you are greater than any evil in this world...in our flesh....and the devil. You died for our sins...and rose on the third day victorious over sin and death! You are mighty to save!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep your his the moment you asked him to forgive you of all your sin.And no one, nothing can separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.Nothing visible and nothing invisible.The battleground is your mind and sometimes your body...the word says Satan walks and looks,sends his minions if they listen to him to send you thoughts of a destructive nature or of Doubt that God cares or that your not forgiven,dont listen.....The works of the devil were destroyed at the cross, he was defeated at the cross.Jesus gave peter the Keys of death and the grave that he took from Satans hands when he spent 3 days in the heart of the earth.The millions that were waiting on the deliverer the Son of God to set them free came and he did that the people recieved thier loved ones back from the dead .So you are not under the Power of fear anymore Cause God didnt give us a spirit of fear but of power and a sond mind not to be in bondage again with fear.

Dear Cheyenne

I have read your post about your fears and anxieties about your salvation. You have received wonderful advices here and I can scarcely add anything more to it. I can assure you this one thing and that is when you asked the Lord to save you He responded and did just that. As one sister mentioned the Lord promises to protect His sheep so that no one can pluck them out of His hand. This is true.

As you see, you are not the only one who has experienced these doubtings about salvation. I have too when I first became a Christian. These are all the tricks of the devil to make you unhappy, knowing he cannot pluck you out of the hand of the Lord. The truth is while the devil is bothering you, remember your Saviour Jesus Christ is not just standing there doing nothing. He is with you and He will never forsake you. He knows that you cannot do anything without Him and He does not expect you to do anything without Him and condemn you if you fail. Depend upon Him and let Him work through you.

So, do not fear. Like all of us who were once troubled like that did, you too will overcome these voices of lies from the devil. Just be patient. You do not need to ask the Lord into your heart again. Just do not believe the devil when he makes you think you are not saved.

Finally, if you sin, the Lord will forgive you and cleanse you. Of course, He will teach you to trust His grace that you may not sin. Thattoo is possible. But the Lord does not take away your salvation if you fall. He will lift you up and restore you to continue in His way.

So I have the confidence that by the grace of God you will overcome these negative experiences you are now having. I will continue to pray for you.

Dear Cheyenne, My name is Lula and I think you just have to ask God once to be your Lord and savior. You need to start confessing that you are saved because God says in his word you are. Satan will keep putting the thought in your head that you are not and that is a lie. When we confess the word of God out loud then Satan has to flee and he has no power over you. You all so have to remember that God said in his word that he will be with you for ever and that he would never leave you or forsake you. I have some scriptures on my blog that you can go to and confess them everyday. Remember that their is power when you confess Gods word, I love you and pray that God will show you what I am talking about. You have to believe that God will do what he said he will do in his word. You can find my blog at http://houseofelijah.blogspot.com .

Dear sis,
I understand what you say because I've had that question popping up in my head many times. Am I really His? Am I really saved?
The following Scriptures came to me when I read your post:
John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.
John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out
