Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 130,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.
I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Wisdom that Works by Bob Stevenson, Choice Quotations and daily Meditations, working through the whole Bible. something to focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful.
A GOLDEN PROMISE
“For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen a God besides you, who works for him who waits for him” – Isaiah 64: 4
God loves it when we wait for Him to work on our behalf. While many might think that waiting on God is a passive exercise, I believe waiting is one of the most active things that we can do! Waiting on God is acknowledging that He is our source for everything. When we wait on God, we choose to trust Him to act on our behalf rather than trusting in our own resources to make things happen.
I believe that when we truly wait upon God in obedience to the direction of His Holy Spirit in our lives (Romans 8:14), we are demonstrating our wholehearted trust in His goodness to lead us. When we trust Him, we honor His ability to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. My prayer today is that we would all see the incredible benefits of learning to wait on God.
WISDOM THAT WORKS
SELFISHNESS – Rev. Bob Stevenson
The selfish man quarrels against. Every sound principle and conduct by demanding his own way”. Read: Proverbs 18:1 Selfishness is a miserable disposition to be controlled by and even more pathetic to see in action. From early childhood our parents had to teach us the grace of sharing what we have with others and on many occasions had to sharply confront our grasping natures when we refused to let our brothers or sisters play with our toys. Our reasoning was simple, “This belongs to me, and me alone, and l don’t have to share it with anyone else if don’t want to”!!! ‘
In actual fact there is legitimacy about this reasoning? The reality is that those things which truly belong to you are in fact your possessions to do whatever you wish with them. After all isn’t it right and proper to be protective of what is yours? Who knows? If I let somebody else have what is mine it might get damaged or broken? All these are legitimate concerns but our parents were wise to teach us in those early days that there are times when we have to release our grasp on those things we treasure and love because sharing lets somebody else experience the same joys that we do, in spite of the risks!
The alternative would allow selfishness to rule us and then we would have to experience the loneliness of having our own way.

True love stories never have endings – Richard Bach
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope – Maya Angelou
I love you the more in that I believe you had liked me for my own sake and for nothing else – John Keats
DIVINE INTIMACY– Deuteronomy 34: 9-12
It mentions in v10 the particular close relationship that the departed leader had with the Lord. Besides being acclaimed the greatest prophet there is the declaration of the reason why he became such – “whom the Lord knew face to face.” He enjoyed a close relationship with the Lord and this resulted in the Lord being able to communicate the things he needed to know of His plans and procedures. When real problems cropped up that really required sorting out, he was able to discover the wisdom, insight and direction of the Lord.
This holy, godly man knew that the strength and success both of his life and ministry was dependent on the priority of having and maintaining a close bond with the Lord. God became his sufficient Lord at the burning bush – Exodus 3, and he was determined that the union would become stronger and more productive than ever. He had the opportunity of getting to know the Lord for himself and in a way that would also serve to the advantage of the people. He hungered for the Lord personally. His leadership emerged out of this wholesome condition of life and being and so became powerful and profitable.
It should be a number one priority of life and ambition to really get to know the Lord. All depends upon this crucial factor. He would not only reveal Himself to you but desires that from this unveiling there will proceed a bonding and blending with Himself so that your life becomes enriched at all levels. The end result will mean that your work for others will be divinely influential and effectual.
