Hi guys, it’d be really great if you guys could help me with this issue I’m having . For a while now I have had a constant and overwhelming fear I am not secure in my salvation. I’ve been involved in awful things like premarital sex, sending nudes, having homosexual desires and things of the like. I’ve also struggled in other parts of my life and feeling like I’m constantly like warm. I will pray and ask for forgiveness but the relief doesn’t last very long. I have prayed the prayer and I believe the words, but I’m constantly conflicted. I’m always afraid I wasn’t sincere in my prayers, that I may never have been saved. So many preachers preach scary things like you should know the exact date you are saved and I don’t. You should be 100% sure you’re saved and I don’t. If you find yourself in habitual sin you are not saved and I have been and I hate it and it hurts. They say you can’t be saved if a reason you are being saved is the fear of hell and I fear hell and death and the end of the world. Oh please someone help me

oh sweet heart, reading this breaks my heart. Mainly because I totally know how you feel, but also because all you have been hearing is complete lies. So I’m going to try and break down each lie best I can without making this a book 😉
So first of all, our relationship with God and our salvation is not based off of our feelings and whether or not we think we are safe. Satan has the ability to manipulate our feelings, and its a great way for him to turn you off from God.
So, in other words, don’t let the lies and fear bombard you. If you sincerely meant what you prayed, there is absolutely no grey area in whether or not you are saved. Embrace that and own that. Be free in that, and know God is always there to catch you when you fall, and to always better you.
