Assurance of Salvation
Believers look for assurance of salvation, from the Scriptures and from what other people say, from prophecies and from books, but the only One who can really tell us what out situation is, is Jesus Christ Himself. He gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us and to teach us and to tell us what our situation is with Him, whether He is pleased with us.
Only Jesus can tell us whether He is pleased with us. There is no other assurance, nobody else can tell us. We have to go to Him and ask Him whether He is pleased with us. Seek Him, pray , wait on Him until He speaks to you, then you KNOW whether Jesus Christ is pleased with you or not.
Stay IN HIS PEACE. Keep on seeking Him. Keep on seeking His approval and He will reveal Himself to you. Do not trust other people. Do not look for assurances in the Bible. Look for your assurance and your guidance from Jesus Christ Himself.
May Jesus bless you.
