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.

TODAY’S WORD FOR YOU

The LORD’S desire for you is that you shall know and taste real happiness. His WORD makes known: “Happy is that people whose God is the LORD” – Psalm 144:15. He reveals that deep and abiding delight is found not in the possession and passing of things and natural experiences, but enjoying His presence, providences and power in life. So today, all you need is to come and taste of Him and see that He is good and you will be abundantly blessed and sense genuine joy and gladness. You are not to exist in misery, murmuring and complaining over life’s lot but thrill that He is now in your life to superintend and satisfy you completely. Open up on all fronts and let Him flood you with His grace and goodness and make this day one to be remembered in every way. The issue is in your hands: you can choose to be happy and blessed in and through Him. Take in Psalm 1 as your medicine!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My cup runs over” – Psalm 23: 5

In today’s Scripture reference, King David declares that the Lord not only prepares a banquet for him in the presence of his enemies, but God also anoints his head with oil so his cup overflows. What a picture of abundance. Right in the midst of his enemies, David says that there are overflowing blessings.

I believe that the anointing that God wants to pour out over our lives today will cause us to live a life of fullness, where others will be able to benefit from the spill-over of the anointing of God in our lives. In many Christian circles, the focus is on what we can do for God. How hard we can work, how we can demonstrate our love for Him.

While all these things can be good in themselves, if we do them to somehow earn His love, we are missing the point. In 1 John 1:19, the Apostle Johns says, “We love because He first loved us”. God initiates, we receive. I believe that the key to living a life from a full cup is coming to the place where we learn to be good receivers from God.

The more love we can receive from Him, the more love will overflow in our lives. The more anointing that He pours in us; the more it can be spilled over to others. My prayer today is that we would all learn to become better receivers of the goodness and graciousness of our God and Father so that we might live our lives from a full cup that is continually overflowing.

HOW TO LIVE AND ACT
Rev. Bob Stevenson

These are the proverbs of King Solomon of Israel, David’s son: He wrote them to teach his people how to live — how to act in every circumstance for he wanted them to be just and fair in everything they did . . . . . by exploring the depths of meaning in these nuggets of truth.

Read: Proverbs 1: 1-6 What a wonderful legacy King Solomon not only provided for his subjects as their king, but every future generation who wanted to know how to live a purposeful fulfilling life in any give circumstances of that life.
Here are laid out, some of the basics for us live and act right.

Firstly there is ‘Understanding’ – That is the ability to perceive, comprehend, process or analyse what is being communicated. Then there is ‘Justice’ — The capacity to act impartially with complete equality towards everyone whether friend or foe. Thirdly, there was ‘Fair Mindedness’ — That is, a disposition that is openhearted and candid and as much as possible without bias, just and equitable.

With these three basics in place it was Solomon’s desire that all of his subjects, whether simple minded or intellectually sophisticated, would be able to take heed to the advice and warnings contained in these proverbs. So we will be able to become role models that others will be able to follow.

As you embark on this quest for wisdom and knowledge be sure to keep these three basics in place so as to gain the maximum benefit from your daily quota of God’s wisdom. A wisdom that really does work, if only we will let it!
