He Has Called You by Name and You Are His
“For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.” - 1 Corinthians 2:11
J. Sidlow Baxter once said, “Your emotions are the shallowest part of your nature. Salvation is the deepest work of God. He is not going to do His deepest work in the shallowest part.”
Someone may think he knows me because he hears my voice or read my words, but he cannot look deep down into my spirit. From the time I gave my heart to Jesus Christ, there has been a stamp of authenticity upon my heart saying, “Adrian, you belong to Me.”
It is not an emotional feeling, because emotions have nothing to do with salvation. It is also not an intellectual thing, because salvation is not an act that a man can rationalize. Salvation is a God thing.
You need not look for a sign or a feeling. Your trust is not in your emotions but in the Savior who has called you by name, and you are His.
