I accepted Christ in the year 2013 ..I am from a hindu family ..My questions are all related to my life and all the pain ..I have VERY huge computer and maths talents and I have a great desire to work in Google,facebook like companies in San fransisco Bay area..But I studied in a college where there is 0 exposure to the right way to these companies ..And also there were not great internet facilities back then in India so I did not know the proper way to study for those companies ..so I am preparing for these companies now and started preparing for these companies only from 2018 ..My question is why God shut my path to these companies which are some of the best places to work ..I have lost 8 years of my life ..and these 8 years were full of suffering and pain ..I was also physically and mentally abused by many people ..Why did not God give me best things in life?Well the bible says what a man sows that a man reaps ,,But i did NOT do any harm to anyone ..Then why did i suffer?And why brother God does not wanna give me best things in life like Jobs in these companies which are located in San Fransisco California ..I am not saying I wont work at all but God should give me anything ..These 8 years from 2011 -2017 whatever I suffered under the hands of many people ..during these 7-8 years why did not God show me the right path to these companies ..Had God shown me the right path during these 8 years .I would not have started preparing for these companies in 2018 but in 2012-2013 and today by now I would definetely had been there in one such companies in San Fransisco ..Instead of giving me good things which could have saved my life ..Why did God allow pain and sufferings in my life where he allowed many people to torment me those 8 years??How based on all what happened in my life Can i still believe that God loves me???plz sorry if I had hurt u ..all i have written in this paragraph is based on my life pain and experiences ..plz tell me why should I still need to worship a God who instead of showing me right path and giving me good things allowed my 8 years to be wasted ..Is it Ok to leave God for another 40-50 years to commensate for the lost 8 years because I nowadays fear to worship God who I think will not give me any thing best and good but will only give me to torment and sufferings .. am walking in wildereness ..Since u people are a strong man of God ..I believe u can counsel me based on what I have written ..and Plz sorry i did not mean to hurt u ..

Hi Akhilesh,

If you're thinking that becoming a Christian is a sure fire route to getting a tasty job in a global tech company like Apple or Microsoft, it's little wonder you're disappointed. There's nowhere in the Bible that makes such a promise, quite the reverse, Matthew 8:19-20. Christianity is about being saved from an unthinkable inevitable, having a personal loving relationship with the God who created and is in charge of everything, loves you with a love that's literally limitless, looks after, protects and provides for you and gives you blessings that even Google can't find, not least of which is the Holy Spirit.

I'm sorry but your tantrums and rants to God, about Him not following your will or giving you your way rather than His, are way out of order. A long time ago Janis Joplin released a tongue in cheek jokey record, 'Oh Lord Won't You Give Me a Mercedes Benz'. Your post sounds like that.

Time to put your toys back in the pram, say sorry to God and focus upon finding out what His will is in your life. You can do that through praise, worship, studying the Bible and talking to God and thinking through and reflecting on what you've read and what He's saying to you. Carry on as you're going and you'll stymie His will, forgo pretty much all of His blessings and end up a washed up wastrel, wishing things had been done so differently. How do I know? Well, that very nearly happened to me, until I realised there's only two ways; God's way and the wrong way.

I understand India's a rising power in tech. I've always worked for small companies and tried to be a part of their expansion plans, never felt the desire to want to be a small cog in a big machine. Now I've got my own small business and I love it. Please please please, pray to God, re-surrender your life and tell Him, 'Your will be done in my life, like it is in Heaven'.

God bless you Akhilesh, I'm praying for you.

Love Andy x

thank u but what if God's plan for my life is NOT even one of these tech companies??But dont I know what is best for me ?Then why should I say "God let ur will be done" ...And I lost 8 years ..why is that so??NO that was NOT my mistake ..If i had wasted that time knowing the truth then I wont be complaining like this but God did NOT even show me the path ..I lost all GREATEST things in life ..So if God does NOT want to give me best things which I deserve why then should I continue with such a faith??I do NOT want God to bless me ..I am a hardworker so I can work as much as I can and get all what I want ..My question is why wil God not show me right path ..?Is that because your God does NOT want Good things for his people?So Why should i continue in a faith where a God will always let his people suffer?

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Proverbs 19:21 says: ‘Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.'

Greetings,

have you considered using your talents working with a place like SEESHA?
Potentially much more rewarding and good for you as well as others?


Bless you ....><>

It is amazing that you say that you accepted Christ in 2013 and yet cannot discern where God wants you to be especially in light of the fact that His sheep hear His voice and they follow- John 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. John 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

First of all, no one raises their hand in a church and says I want to accept Christ because you cannot choose Him because God chooses those whom are genuinely seeking His mercy and forgiveness for sins. No one comes to Christ unless God draws them John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. There are churches who preach a gospel that is not the true gospel. What they preach is a prosperity gospel “come to God and He will prosper you financially or otherwise”. They even prophecy over people and say that God will do this and that for them, but they are false prophets and false teachers. So, let us get it straight here and now that most of these false prophecies are not from God. There are also those who say Jesus loves you raise your hand if you want to accept Him. A lot do, I even did and only found out later I was still not saved from Gods eternal judgement.

I do not know if the above is the case with you but it sounds like it to me. Consider these verses:

Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die (we do not put people to death anymore for this we do not allow them to have fellowship with us). Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

As seen by the above verses there are those who preach a Jesus who is not the genuine Jesus. Tele-evangelists are there only to confuse and nullify the true gospel of God. Additionally, there must be conviction for sin and from that a desire to return to God and find His forgiveness and mercy. It is always your choice to obey the gospel God does not force Himself on anyone – He has given us a free will to choose.

Alternatively, when we come to God, through Christ, we have surrendered OUR LIFE to Him! We are not our own anymore we are bought with a price. 1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Before we come to salvation, through Christ, we just want to do our own thing and are in rebellion against God. Our will is not in line with His will. So, once we come to Christ it is His will we want to do. Jesus is our example of this for us to follow read John 17.

Your desire to go to these great technology companies is nothing but a personal desire or your own. God cannot lie because God cannot sin. If God had at any time said to you that He will lead you to those companies He will keep to His Word. But if someone claiming to have heard from God and gave you this false promise he/she is the liar not God. As the Word of God says “Let God be true and every man be a liar”. God is not there at our beck and call, if we ask anything in accordance with His will He hears us and will do it. God is not a God whom we have created by our own understanding of what He is like and how He should act. He is a sovereign ruler over us His creation and we do His will otherwise we are in rebellion.

Take your complaint to a genuine bible teaching pastor and let him council you from the Word of God. If you have genuinely been born again and are one with God, you will have a love for His Word and a love for God as a whole. You will want to do His will and not your own. Your love for Christ and what He has done for you on the cross should be foremost in your heart because He suffered terribly for something we did., Therefore we love Him for what He has done for us, He has prevented us from going to hell and the lake of fire in eternity. An eternal separation from God.
