Q:

You often tell people to ask Jesus to come into their lives with a simple prayer of faith. But how do I know if I'm saying the right words? Maybe I haven't said enough, or I've said the wrong things. How can I be sure God has heard me?


A:

When we pray, God isn’t concerned with the eloquence of our words but with the attitude of our hearts. If you have sincerely invited Jesus Christ to come into your life, you can be sure God has heard your prayer. The Bible says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14).

Never forget: God wants you to commit your life to Christ far more than you do! After all, He sent Jesus Christ into the world for one reason: to make our salvation possible. Christ did this by becoming the final and complete sacrifice for our sins through His death on the cross—and He proved it, by overcoming the powers of death and Hell and sin and Satan through His resurrection from the dead. Now He offers us salvation as a free gift—free, because Christ has already paid for it.

Would God have done this if He were reluctant for us to be saved? Would Christ have gone through the agonies of the cross if He didn’t want us to be with Him in Heaven forever? No, of course not. God loves us—and the proof is Jesus Christ.

If you are uncertain of your salvation, turn to Christ today, and (as I’ve often said) by a simple prayer of faith give your life to Him. God’s promise is for you: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life” (John 3:36).

    I have been reading your daily devotional for a long time and I find it very inspiring. I’m afraid my prayer life is not what it should be as I lose concentration very easily.

      God gave man dominion over animals. Your pet deserves to return to God just as we do. People die, our beloved pets are gifts from God. Don’t let your dog suffer. Euphanasia is a kindness. It will end pain and suffering your pet does not understand or want. God bless you and be with you.
