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 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 PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

Whilst you must keep abreast with the times and be knowledgeable of what is happening in the world all around you, never allow such to be the guiding and directing factor and force in your living. In an ever-changing world in which you exist you must allow the LORD, who never changes because he does not need to) to inspire, strengthen and motivate your inward being and doings. He is always up-to-date and is utterly familiar with all that is occurring in you and elsewhere. All your today’s and tomorrows are known and planned and He will bring the transformations that will make you into the individual He has determined from eternity. He does not waste time nor yours but every moment is weighed to bring advantage to you as you allow the world above not below to direct your life. So today, allow his grace wisdom and power to constantly renew and bring the needful changes.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

The friendship of Yahweh is with those who fear him. He will show them his covenant” – Psalm 25: 14
King David is the author of this psalm. Today’s promise talks about how God shares His secrets with those who fear Him. It is important that we know that the word ‘fear’ isn’t intended to mean that we are afraid of God, rather that we revere Him and deeply respect His awesome power.

Isn’t it amazing to think that our God and Father wants to share His secrets with us? Doesn’t it blow your mind to think that we are friends of God? I am convinced that the Lord is always looking for those whom He can share His heart with.
When I think of this promise and God’s desire to share His secrets with ME, I am humbled by the thought. My prayer is that we will be able to quiet ourselves from all the distractions and noise of the day so that we might hear the gentle whispers of our Father’s voice as He confides in us.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linford
“THERE’S PLENTY LEFT . . .”

Timothy was enjoying his first visit to the seaside. His mother had helped him to build a sand-castle, and round it had formed a ditch. “That’s the moat,” she said, “Now fill it with water.” The toddler took his bucket to the water’s edge, filled it, and came back. But he stumbled, and lost most of the bucket‘s contents. “Now look what you’ve done,” chided mother, “You’ve spilled it.” “Never mind, Mummy,” was the reply, “there’s plenty left”. And went back for a refill.
Plenty left! He could never exhaust the ocean. And we can never exhaust the grace of God – His love in acts of goodness and mercy.

John states, “And of His fullness have all we received and grace for grace” (John 1:16). A T Robertson, an outstanding Greek scholar, points out that “grace for grace” contains the picture of an incoming tide where one wave bounds over another to reach the shore. So we may receive “grace upon grace” from the ocean of God’s love.

Again and again we can return for more, for there’s always PLENTY LEFT. We cannot exhaust God.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“Silence is one great art of conversation” – Hazlitt

“The first ingredient in conversation is truth, the next good sense, the third good humour, and the fourth wit” – Temple

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
TIMING IS EVERYTHING Thomas Addington

“Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure. For there is a proper time and procedure or every matter; though a man’s misery weighs heavily upon him.” – Ecclesiastes8:5-6
So much of life comes down to timing. God sets the stage in our lives, and much of our energy goes into making sure what we do is in sync with the life context that God has laid out in front of us.

In Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby contends that instead of initiating action and asking God to join us, we should figure out what God is doing and join Him. Much of that comes down to timing. When we do what we know we are supposed to do is often as important as what we do.

According to Scripture, Jesus came into the world at the perfect time. He certainly was needed before He arrived. In fact, God-fearing Jews had fervently prayed for and looked forward to the coming of the Messiah for thousands of years. But His coming was perfectly aligned with a series of historical events that together set the stage for His arrival. For the first time in history, there was a common language, a road system that allowed for travel, common forms of currency, and a series of other elements that facilitated the spread of the gospel. Jesus could have come anytime, but He came at the time when the world stage was best arranged for the gospel to go out to the ends of the earth.

On a smaller scale, our lives and work often come down to a judgment regarding timing. In Acts 17:26-27, Paul says something very interesting: “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.” God has set us very specifically in a particular time and a particular place. Neither is by chance.

Because God has thought so carefully about the where and when of our lives and our work, it makes sense that we ought to also be very aware of the timing of our actions to make sure that they are in exact alignment with what God has planned.
