WE ARE NOT A PART OF TPM (CPM). This is an individual personal ministry. I cannot answer any questions for any denominations or faiths. Please do not use this form for such questions
Today many Christians have natural questions regarding the Bible and their walk with God. Please ask us any question you may have and we will include the question an answer in the form of an article in the WordWillSave Originals section.
The question should be a genuine point with an earnest interest regarding the Word and/or walking with God in our daily life. Any question to test the Word of God will not be responded.
Subject: Knowing the will of God
I became a born again child of God for about 2 years now and by the grace of God the Lord has been keeping me in His mercy and grace, All i wanted to know is how do i know the will of God for my life and i want to give all for my Jesus but i don’t know what to do i please need help, because you are been told that God want you to do His will after you become save ,all i want to do for the rest of my life is please the heart of my God and do His prefect will but how do i know His will?
The word of gives some very broad views on the will of God for you oneself
Mic 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
However individually you will face situations daily where God will guide you to do his will, you can see it and follow him or even if you ignore he will still guide you with a bridle
Psa 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
Psa 32:9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
There is no instant answer to your question, as you mature in the Holy Spirit and prayer and as you walk close with Jesus you will begin to realize his will for you
When I personally face such situations I pray and gently inside me the Holy Spirit leads me and when it is HIS WILL you will find perfect peace! You will not find disturbance, anxiety or confusion with the choice you are about to make.

why god not answer to my prayers??
Thank you for writing
There are two types of prayers in our lives;
1) Prayers which are good for us based on God’s will
2) Prayers that are bad for us on the long run, but where we think it is good for us
Category one usually is with a need or blessing, example need a of house, healing, a child, a better life for you or your loved ones.
Category two is usually greed based more than need based, let’s say you want something which you don’t really need, a swimming pool, a promotion you don’t need, a non-Christian girl or boy whom you are trying to convince to marry you and you want God to change their hearts etc.
God does not answer all prayers, he will answer the only the prayer which are good for you. Same as a child can ask anything from the father, but the father will think about it carefully and only provision the request as long as it edifies the child in growth. So you have to select your prayers carefully.
Now assuming that you need falls into the category one, let’s see some details;
1) God always answers are prayers but we don’t see the answer. Meaning the answer process has started but we don’t see the end process. This is where faith comes in. The Red Sea as we read in the Bible was not split in a second, God worked the entire night parting the red sea, although the children of Israelite s did not see it during the night, they only say it in the morning when Moses stretched his staff.
Exo 14:20 “And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.”
Note the words ALL the NIGHT
Let’s say for example that you are married and want a child, the news of pregnancy comes at a particular moment, but there is a pre preparation which can happen in your life, a waiting period to ready you, a period to build your body up in health and nutrients, a period to strengthen you in wealth. See all these are happening leading to your answer. Only thing is you may not see all these things but God has answered your prayers and is working behind the curtains. He will reveal at the correct time the moment, until then he is working, HE IS NOT SILENT. We just need to have faith
2) We need to do our part by believing, while God is working we need to believe and start our preparation. Noah built the ark while there was drought, likewise when you have asked for something in prayer believe that God has done it and you do your part. Don’t stay silent and depressed.
Again I will take the above example. The mother will now start eating the right food. Preparing the home and herself in faith, getting ready for the child even though the physical signs may say otherwise
Jas 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Jas 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
Jas 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
Jas 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
3) strengthen yourself in the Lord
One of the most magnificent characters in the Bible was King David. He was anointed at a very young age by Samuel to be King of Israel. Soon after the anointing he faced the greatest trials any man can face. He lived in caves like an animal instead of palaces. Yet he never gave up and he strengthened himself in the Lord.
1Sa 30:6 “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”
This was a chapter in King David’s life when his own people wanted to stone him. But he never gave up, the NIV says he strengthened himself in the Lord. In the subsequent chapters we read how to received more than he lost.
So don’t give up hope and may God bless you
Subject: still confused
I was a catholic when I was a child but we all became christian but since we became christian I had to face massive problems such as job/financial/ health/ family than being a catholic .So still I am confused . last week I lost my job as well I don’t know what to do ….. . If there is a solution please let me know
We will pray for you
Christianity is a deep well, it is much much deeper than any religion or sect.
Don’t worry you pray to Jesus and he will show you his plan in your life.
Look at the like of Joseph see what and what happened to him after the promise (read his story in Genesis)
Don’t give up hope, does not matter what you situation is Jesus loves you. He will not fail you Pray to him, he will give you the answers and restore everything back in double measure
Here is a worldly story I saw, but you can put in in Jesus context when everything works for our good
There once was a farmer who owned a horse. And one day the horse ran away. All the people in the town came to console him because of the loss. “Oh, I don’t know,” said the farmer, “maybe it’s a bad thing and maybe it’s not.”
A few days later, the horse returned to the farm accompanied by 20 other horses. (Apparently he had found some wild horses and made friends!) All the townspeople came to congratulate him: “Now you have a stable full of horses!” “Oh, I don’t know,” said the farmer, “maybe it’s a good thing and maybe it’s not.”
A few days later, the farmer’s son was out riding one of the new horses. The horse got wild and threw him off, breaking the son’s leg. So all the people in town came to console the farmer because of the accident. “Oh, I don’t know,” said the farmer, “maybe it’s a bad thing and maybe it’s not.”
A few days later, the government declared war and instituted a draft of all able-bodied young men. They came to the town and carted off hundreds of young men, except for the farmer’s son who had a broken leg. “Now I know,” said the farmer, “that it was a good thing my horse ran away.”
The point of this story is obvious. Life is a series of events, and until we’ve reached the end of the series, it’s hard to know exactly why things are happening.
Subject: material blessings
Why all believers are not materially blessed, as the word of god says the god or riches will bless us abundantly. Also what is the reason for material losses, continuous losses..?
2. Share market investing is it advisable according to the word of god.
1/ our definition of Riches and God’s definition of riches for us is quite diff
Joseph was Rich all his life! You might say no
His life took a path of God’s choice. When he was in the waterless pit, if you were to see him you will call him poor, when he was the head of servants you would have called him blessed or even rich, when he was in the prison again, you would have called him a beggar, when was governors of Egypt, you would have called him the richest man around. Depending on when we would have met him and his position at the time, we would have determine his richness as we see fit. However his life was blessed and full of richness.
Our lives material riches should not determine our faith or relationship with God, we must learn to walk with him in tough times and good times. God will do everything long terms for our benefit.
Also there are many things we need to do to become rich, I cannot list it out here as there is not magic rule, in that case everyone will be rich, you have to use the word of God and ask for faith so that God teaches you these things little by little.
2/Investing is encouraged in the word of in versus. Jesus himself talked about investing. However you need to be careful how you invest, in what companies you invest and how much addicted you are to investing itself. So pray and God will guide you.
May God Bless you
