Yes you may. May they be used for the glory of God.
Thanks for being willingly honest with me. I admire your boldness. I’m not sure if I fully understand your questions, but I’ll prayerfully try to best answer them.
I believe that God have a very different relationship with each person. He loves us all very, very much. The way that we feel may not be the same from person to person. Just because someone else feels something and we don’t, doesn’t mean God loves them any more more or any less. His love is profound and just one of those things I think I’ll never be able to fully understand. His love is immeasurable. Like us trying to understand all the stars in the universe when we don’t even know how many there are. Our minds are unable to fathom.
If you want to run to God and seek to worship Him, He willingly holds you and reveals His peaceful Presence. But even when we run from Him, He is still with us. Sometimes we forget, God isn’t a God of sometimes (when we feel sad, lonely, happy, or high-spirited), but a God of always and forever and eternity. He is God no matter what we do, say or even believe. He doesn’t need our permission to exist and He doesn’t need our approval to do anything. All for the reason, He is God. Remembering God’s unchanging attributes gives me great joy because that means He will always love me. And no matter what should come to pass, He will forever be good, therefore doing with is justice and He will always be sovereign, reigning over all things.
From my own experiences, I have prayed the salvation prayer many times. The church leader often invites the people to say and I usually join along. This is because I feel compelled and a need for the grace and mercy of God. Even though I’ve been a Christian for quite some time now, I still say the prayer. Does this invalidate the previous prayers that I’ve said when I first accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior? Or course not!
I think it’s necessary to keep praying the prayer even after we’ve accepted Him into our lives for the first time. That is how a relationship works. We must continue to give our effort and to express our of love. The prayer changes as our relationship with God grows. But sometimes we run back to the basics again because we stumble or we remember how small we really are or for whatever other reason. And it’s okay. Because we’re human and we mess up, we fall down, we wander.I think that not only is it okay, but it’s necessary. When we seek Christ again, He finds us and fills us up with an overflow of abundant blessings because He loves us so.
How do we know that we are saved? Isn’t this one of the biggest questions circling for answers, the one that scholars and theologians try to dissect and dig deep into the core of? Honestly, I really don’t know. You have to ask God for yourself and I have to ask God too. All I know is, in God’s perfect timing, He will reveal everything that we need to know. If we don’t know now, maybe it’s not something crucial for the present. We can direct the energy we spend on these anxieties and focus on simply pursuing Him and spending time with Him.
Live simply, love generously, serve faithfully, speak truthfully, prayer daily and leave everything else to God.
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance,but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
I hoped a helped a little bit. Keep praying because God hears every prayer! And He always responds. Praying for you.
