WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

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

“Oh taste and see that Yahweh is good. Blessed is the man who takes refuge in hi” – Psalm 34:8.

When I think of today’s promise, I think of the difference between looking at a shiny red apple and tasting it. No matter how tasty the apple looks on the outside, the only way that I will truly experience its goodness is to take a big bite out of it!

It is when I sink my teeth into it, that I will be able to taste and see that it is really delicious. Looking at an apple will never sustain us. We could be surrounded by an entire orchard of apples and yet die of starvation if we don’t eat the apples.

I believe that God is extending an invitation for us to not only behold His goodness from afar, but to come close and taste and see that He really is good. In some Christian circles, looking for an experience with God might be seen as undermining the importance of believing without seeing. I am not suggesting that we base our entire Christian walk on experience, but I would suggest that experience is part of any relationship that we have.

While faith (Hebrews 11:6) is still the foundation on which we relate to God, I believe that He wants us to experience Him in every facet of our being. I pray that today, each and every one of us will taste of God’s goodness in a very tangible way that will give us a greater insight into our Papa’s heart

WISDOM THAT WORKS
HELP OVER HUMP – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Be sure you know a person well before you vouch for his credit! Better refuse than to suffer for it later”’
Read: Proverbs 11:15 There have been a number of occasions when I have gone guarantor for There are times in all our lives when we need a little help to get over some financial humps, that without outside help would have the potential to cause us a serious setback.

I remember in my own early years trying to get financially established after returning from serving overseas in missions. Having no financial equity against which to raise credit for the purchase of a family home, I shall be eternally grateful to the people who believed enough in me to financially underwrite my monetary limitations- and who, over time, Iwas able to pay back.

There were also another two occasions in our young family circumstances when I needed some help over those financial humps. This has made me more sensitive to the needs of others who have found themselves in similar circumstances to my own, so I have been able to help them too with some temporary financial assistance.

However the proverb before us today gives a very pertinent caution. Be sure you know the person well before you engage in such an agreement.

Far better endure the temporary disadvantage of having to decline such help than to be left holding the financial baby you never gave birth to!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
SUCCESS

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success – Henry Ford

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts Winston Churchill

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand – Vince Lombardi

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm – Winston Churchill

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE

THE TIME OF LIFE – Genesis 18: 9-15; Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

It is recognised from life and nature that there are given moments and seasons
There are schedules in creation that teach us that definite events are arranged to
occur. God, in His wisdom, providence and ability has ordained, in the running of this world from a natural standpoint, that at particular moments things are to come into operation and manifestation. The seasons of nature definitely express this feature. There is a time in life for things to be born and produced.

In His gracious dealings with Abraham and Sarah, at this point, He reveals that the time has come for them to have a son – see vv10, 14. Both of them had laughed at the thought of it, but the Lord tells them in no uncertain terms that He is the one that works the impossible – v14. The extraordinary is His ordinary domain! It is natural for God to work the supernatural and we should have no problem in believing that. He loves to perform for those who trust Him in this realm. The hope He had originally given them would be realised on time. He had made no mistake with the calendar and clock!

Be assured believer, the Lord has such times in mind for you in your life’s schedule. He turns up on time and says, ‘Now is the time.’ Do not give up hope on what He has promised even if it has reached the point of utter impossibility. Strange, He has a habit of leaving it till the last hour just to show you how great He is and to prove how much He loves you. He has not forgotten you or the thing He promised you.
