Blessed Assurance

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith………………..

Assurance of union with Christ is the greatest experience that a human being can have in this world. When a believer meditates on being born of His Spirit and washed in His blood, he can be certain that he is an heir of salvation. Christians have the Holy Spirit at work in their hearts and, thus, sense the joy that surpasses all understanding. With eyes on heavenly things above Christians can sing with confidence and praise, this is my story, this is my song. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine.

Praise God for the comfort, peace, and joy that comes when believers meditate on His love and rest in His sovereign providence in their lives. There is no worry for Christians when troubles come because they know Jesus is mine! Where is the anxiety for Christians that trust in His love and watch care in their lives? When Christians are in perfect submission, they are at rest. Then they are contented, at peace and delighted to sing with joy that this is my story, this is my song. When the day comes to be called to our heavenly home, we may not be able to sing with our lips but in our hearts we will be singing with joy, This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior, all the day long. For we know that if God is for us, then who can be against us. Brethren meditate on the words of this hymn and be comforted.
Blessed Assurance
Words by: Fanny Crosby

Blessèd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Wonderful encouragement. I love this hymn as well.

If only we can keep a childlike faith, which never becomes childish, but matures, and "grows up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ".
