Trusting The Lord For Everything

Q. I have always wondered when God writes “He will supply all your needs, and that “we are not to worry about the clothes we wear, food to eat.” But then I see those in very poor, third world countries and I am sure there are believers there. How do they not worry and wonder if their needs will be met when conditions are so terribly bad? There are many believers who are losing homes and jobs now even in the US, and I wonder why God allows His children to lose everything but then says not to worry, that He’ll supply those basic needs?

How Do I Know It’s From God?

Q. I struggle with “being in this world but not of it” I believe that even though we profess our faith in Jesus, we still are sometimes “deceived” into thinking that just because we think something is good, it must be from our Father. And I know the verse of “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change” but isn’t that talking about Jesus? I hate being deceived and I was just wondering if you had any advice or suggestions on the subject.

Increasing My Fruits

Q. Although 49, I am a “babe” in Christ as I was reborn last June. I have a question please. I was listening to a talk show about the Rapture in which the Speaker talked about all the raptured believers getting their reward for bearing fruit based on 1 Corinthians 3:10-15. What will happen to someone, like me, who is newly reborn and has hardly any fruits at all? I would greatly appreciate some advice on how to increase my fruits.

How Can I Know The Holy Spirit Is In Me?

Q. I’ve been a believer since I was little and now I’m having trouble because after a life changing experience I’ve realized that in the past I may not have believed it in my heart after all. I have problems knowing if the Holy Spirit is guiding me. I’ve always felt bad when sinning because I knew it was wrong, but there have been times in my life when I sinned knowingly and didn’t care. Since I didn’t care, was I saved?

Protocol For Prayer?

Q. Would you please address the proper order of prayer? I realize that there was a proper order (or to use the secular term “protocol”) that was observed in the Temple worship. Does a proper order also apply to our prayers? All during the day, I find myself just talking with either God or Jesus without much formality, very much like I talk with my best friends here on earth. Is this being disrespectful to who God and Jesus are? They are too important to me to ever be disrespectful to who they are and what they have done for me.
