Are you pondering what I'm pondering?


  • What does it feel like to be saved? Does such a feeling exist? Or does feeling saved simply mean that you believe in God's promises?

What it feels like to be saved...
I am known and deeply loved by the One who made me.

Samantha, I feel saved because I am assured of my salvation in all the Words of my Lord God. I wouldn't feel saved, if I didn't read the affirmation everyday. Does that make sense?

When you are saved, it feels like a giant weight has been lifted off as you are now accepted as a Child of God, renewed, fresh and a new person.

I know we should be assured...I'm just not. I'm going through....a season, I suppose.

sometimes the tangible feeling we have of God is not always there. It doesnt mean we aren't saved, but in my experience, when that happends to me, i sense God is drawing me deeper with him. Because you have to cling to his promise, you have to seek him harder if that is correct to say that... testing comes to all of us, but when we pass the test, how much stronger and more mature we are in our faith :)

James 1
2-4Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way

You won't feel or know the corruption from which you are saved.

If we can "prove" the faith in us...and by grace through faith are we saved...can't we "prove" the salvation we equally obtain?

Surely, we know and feel our salvation...of our spirits.

I didn't really think there was an actual "feeling," but I've always wondered why some people have such amazing conversion stories.

I really don't have one at all...I mean, no specific date or "month." I've come a long way, but still....

I realize some people have such drastic changes when they are saved, so that GOD gets all the glory! Wouldn't He change all those who are saved just as drastically? So He gets even more glory???

But...I'm not God. And I do not understand HIS ways.
