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

“Yahweh is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who take refuge in him” – Nahum 1:7

The NIV Bible says Nahum 1:7 this way… The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him, (NIV) In Ecclesiastes it says that there is a season for all things, so there is no escaping the fact that we will all have difficult times in our life. Jesus reminded us in John 16:33 that though we will have trouble in this world, we can take heart, because He has overcome the world.

In today’s promise, we are reminded that because the Lord is good, and because He cares for those who trust in Him, He will be our refuge in times of trouble. He will be our stronghold, our safe place, our haven of rest in the midst of the storm.

My prayer today is that we would be comforted by this promise and take up residence in the secret place of the Most High (Psalm 91) so that He might be our refuge in times of trouble.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
MONEY! MONEY! MONEY! – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Trust in your money and down you go! Trust in God and flourish as a tree”.
ead: Proverbs 11:28

My mother used to say “Money is the root of all evil” quoting mistakenly the Bible verse which actually says. The Love of money is the root of all evil”. (1 Timothy 6:10) Nowhere in scripture are we warned not to be wealthy. In fact the very opposite is the case in both the old and new testaments. It’s your attitude towards wealth that is warned against.

Do you master money or does money master you? The proverb today quaintly paraphrases the original text by telling us that if we trust in money then down we go! Yes! Down we go in more ways than one. Down we go in our value system. Down we go in our judgment and eventually if nothing changes down we go eternally.

On the other hand, if your wealth is created as a servant, and your approach to it from the outset is always subject to your trust in God, then there is no doubt about it, you will flourish like a tree. Like a tree because your roots are not planted in the security of what you possess but rather in the source of life which only God can give. Alter all what we really love is what we are going to treasure. Think about that!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
INSPIRATIONAL

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us – Joseph Campbell
Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud – Maya Angelou
if opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door – Milton Berle

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light – Aristotle Onassis

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE

BONDING FRIENDSHIP – Genesis 21: 22-34

How wonderful to read of a man by the name of Abimelech seeking to establish a lasting bond of friendship with Abraham! It lets us in on the fact that the latter was a person worth knowing and that he was held in highest regard. There was something true, warm and kind that switched people on to him that led on to a more permanent relationship. Abimelech wanted the union to be up front so that they could wholly trust each other to profit and pleasure.

God’s man was no easy walk over and he determined there should be absolute integrity and honesty in this and so brought up an issue that had been quite provocative – vv25, 26. The thing was dealt with and cleared out of the way and the bond deepened with the making of an oath. They were determined to make this work to mutual good. Abraham planted a grove of trees in commemoration and made it more memorable by calling on the Lord, no doubt expressing his gratitude for such developments in his life.

Be encouraged in God to strengthen your ties of friendship today so that your relationships become more sound, sweet and rewarding. Be reminded of the wise proverb – “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” – Proverbs 18: 24. And don’t forget: make sure of your bonding with the Lord! Establishing your relationship with Him is sure to result in Him showing His grace, kindness and blessing in so many unforgettable ways.
