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

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith” – John 4:5

By simply believing that God is who He says He is, and we are who He says we are, we overcome the world! Who is God? He is the Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Almighty God who happens to be our heavenly Dad. Who are we? We are His beloved children and joint heirs with our elder brother, Jesus Christ.

If we truly believe this simple truth, nothing in the world can ever overcome us! We belong to God and He belongs to us. We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37) If God is for us, who can be against us! (Romans 8:31)

It is His strength and His power that has already secured our victory. We just simply need to believe it and through simple childlike trust, we will overcome the world.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
REAL SUCCESS
Rev. Bob Stevenson

“The Lord blesses good men and condemns the wicked. Wickedness never brings real success; only the godly have that”.

Success has been defined as the accomplishment of a desired outcome, be it in a secular or spiritual context. According to this definition then, the World Champion 400 Metre freestyle swimmer, Ian Thorpe, could be described as a failure. Because of an accidental slip into the pool after coming under starters orders, he was disqualified from swimming that event at the Athens Olympics. This is Thorpe’s premier event at which he has won a gold metal at least twice before. He has the fastest recorded time above anyone else in the world! However, the rules say he has to be disqualified from competing because of this one and only false start in the whole of his illustrious swimming career. The admirable thing about this world champion is that he has accepted the ruling with grace dignity and is not expecting any different treatment, simply because he is the world In that one mistake he has according to our definition of success failed, but in actual fact as a person he has over- whelmingly succeeded.

To act in a godly way whether you are godly or not, will always bring success because there are principles of right doing which God will always delight to honour and everyone else will admire

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Helen Keller

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE – Genesis 22: 15-19; Ps 23

Right from the call upon Abram’s life, the Lord made it clear that a supreme purpose existed with regard to his future, and it was that he would be richly blessed by God. There was a setting of the objective in thee surest terms so His servant should live in the conviction and assurance of this. He was to be in no
doubt that God was to bless him in an abundant manner. He had everything to
look forward to because the divine promise made to him. In no way will the Lord end up being rendered incapable of fulfilling it.

Abraham had been faithful to God in all the demands that had been placed upon him. The ground had been laid for the bringing to pass of what the Lord had said. The Lord had changed him and perfected his faith. God produced a man willing to love and obey him. Having expressed his utter devotion in the readiness to give of his best, the Lord responds in oath to the fulfillment of blessing – vv16-18. At no time is the Lord slack but is always on time and up-to-date with His words and workings as this patriarch proved throughout His journey with God.

The challenge comes down the line through the prophet Malachi. In his day God’s people were failing to give the Lord the best and so were missing out on the divine covenant of blessing. In chapter 3 he states and v10 is the directive from the Lord: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse . . . prove Me now . . . if I will not open the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to contain it.” Today, if you would know the immeasurable blessing of God on your life, make sure you follow down the same track of divine love, faith and obedience. Always give Him the best. Tithing is a good way to start!IMG_2697
