    does god help intellectually when you study a career?
    or he leaves you because you didnt study enough?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Jesus wants us to know He is closer than a brother.

    Would a close friend help you, or smack you for not doing good enough?

    When you say help you, are you asking if he puts the information to you without you doing nothing?

    He certainly helped me in my job schooling. I guess it would depend on if your choice of major had His blessing or not.

    If you are struggling to understand your classes, pray before arriving to them.
    But you still have to "set your hand" to the effort.

    “Now it shall come to pass,
    if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God,
    to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today,
    that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.
    And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you,
    because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:
    • Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
    • Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.
    • Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
    • Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
    The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

    The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses
    and in all to which you set your hand,..." Deuteronomy 28:1-8 NKJV

    Just want you to know if there is any separation between you and God it would be because you moved, all you have to do is reach out to Him

    I would seek the Lord’s input on the career beforehand. He may have a better suggestion in mind. My daughter contemplated health care. But her path would have placed her at the forefront of the pandemic instead of self-employment as a wellness coach. God knows best.

    God doesn't leave you because you didn't study enough.

    But He may teach you the lesson that not studying leads to failure.

    Well put.

    That has to be the most taken-out-of-context verse in the Bible. It does not mean that everyone can pass advanced calculus.

    What kind of mathematics is it? Have you asked anybody for help? Have you spoken to your teacher, lecturer, or tutor?

    At the very least, we can do "all things" that God has called us to. ;)

    What is your learning style? Visual, written, auditory, etc.
    Have you worked with a tutor?
    What career are you preparing for?

    i quite like that concept of God not being violent and smacking us..... i never did have children, but if i did, i would not go down that route of disciplining them. sorry, missing point of thread.

    you seem to know a different God from mine. yours sounds nice!

    I believe that God works in degrees and that He uses the least pain necessary to train us.

    He doesn't have to smack us. He can let us feel the full brunt of the consequences (of our choices) if it will help us in the long run.
    It is called dyscalculia. If the math is required for that major and he can show that he has that condition, he can get extra assistance in that subject.

    I have level 1 autism. Since getting saved, I have experienced deliverance and I highly recommend it where it is appropriate, but the root of my particular form of autism does not appear to be spiritual in nature.

    Special education is not a surrender to the enemy. It is just an acknowledgement of a personal weakness (which we all have in one form or another).
