WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 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 Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotations and a miniature message from the Psalms that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

Do not miss out on the immediate things that God wants to both in-work and outwork through you. You can be taken up with issues that look important but on closer investigation are not so. These things have to be left aside and a movement has to be made towards the LORD to discover what is in His mind and heart for your life and ministry. This has to be top priority. Unless this is so, there will never be the discovery of the greater and the more fruitful line of life and service. The opportunity is now set before you, so do not put it off for another time or day. Life proceeds unconsciously quietly and speedily. The LORD does not desire that you end up wishing you had engaged in more vital concerns but to ultimately view a life and work well done that will receive everlasting credit.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”You open your hand, and satisfy the desire of every living thing” _ Psalm 145:16

Just think of this promise. When God simply opens His hand, He provides for all that He created! Sometimes when I ask for daily provision, it is like I am doing so expecting some big miracle. But the truth of the matter is that fathers provide for their children. Since God is the perfect Father, He has made a commitment to provide for all that He has created.

Sadly, we still see unfathomable suffering around the world. From what I understand, God has provided enough food to feed every person on the planet. The issue is not with Him, but with those charged to steward the resources of the earth. If we would only be willing to share the wealth of our resources that God has given to us, there would be no starvation. It isn’t God who isn’t providing, rather it is a world full of orphans that aren’t willing to share what they have received.

When it comes to our daily provision, we need not look to our own resources for the answer, but to the unlimited resources that come from heaven. May we all echo the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray to our Father in the Lord’s prayer and say… “Give us this day our daily bread”.

If Jesus said that we should ask our Father daily for provision, then we need to link our faith with expectancy that He hears our prayers and He will be faithful to provide… Just by opening up His hand!

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
JUST PASSING BY
hen Mary of Bethany anointed the feet of Jesus, “the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume” [John 12:3). She, in her embarrassment, “wiped His feet with her hair”. For long after, her perfumed life – the same that anointed Jesus – would remind people of this act. Of worship. Her very passing by would be redolent of that fragrant moment.

May not we, too, distil the sweet fragrance of Christ as we pass by (cf 2 Cor 2:14,15)’?

A rose crossed my path. How did l know? A fragrance sweet Assailed my sense, Proof of its gladdening presence. A godly life was lived. How did l know? The fragrance of love Assailed my heart Pervading my spirit with peace.
Our fellowship with Christ, augmented by prayerful devotion and attested by deeds of kindness, can shed a holy fragrance that our very presence can be a benediction, and our mere passing by, like Peters shadow (Acts 5:16) bring healing to wounded hearts, and consolation to tired minds.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“If Christians had ever been brave enough to make Christ alive, nobody would now be saying that Christianity is dead” – irkland

“The argument for the risen Christ is the living followers of Christ” –Winifred Kirkland

“If Shakespeare should come into this room, we would all rise; but if Jesus Christ should come in we would all kneel” – Charles Lamb

“I will place no value on anything I may possess except in relation to the kingdom of Christ. If anything I have will advance the interests of that kingdom, it shall be given away or kept, only as by giving or keeping it, I may promote the glory of Him to whom I owe all my hopes in time and eternity” — David Livingstone

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
LOVING LIFE TODAY Thomas Addington

God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart” – Ecclesiastes 5:20
Life is challenging. It is difficult. It is uncertain. It is stressful.

All of that is true, but it’s not the conclusion. The summary at the end of the day, week, or year is supposed to read quite differently: “It is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labour. . . . Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them . . . and be happy in his work-—this is a gift of God” (Ecclesiastes 5:18—19).

Our relationship with God opens the door for us to enjoy our work and lives. This kind of enjoyment is not some future “retirement enjoyment.” It is present tense, as in this year, this month-even today.

Solomon is absolutely focused on this throughout the Book of Ecclesiastes. He probably needs to say it over and over because we might not otherwise believe that he really means it. In the middle of all the stresses and strains of life—especially the strains and stresses in our lives at work—he says we are to experience joy, satisfaction, and fulfilment. A lack of those characteristics indicates that we lack a relationship with God. After all, such great things only come as a gilt from God. Many of us don’t do very well with this. It almost seems as if we didn’t get the memo that declares that followers of Christ have the freedom to enjoy their work and their lives.

Of course, the enjoyment that Solomon talks about is not a Pollyanna “God- will—make-life-perfect” kind of joy. He makes it very clear that life will not be perfect. But even in the middle of corruption and oppression, a man or a woman with a relationship with God receives the unbelievable gift of enjoyment, meaning, and fulfilment in life.

So how is your day going?
