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

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love” – Eph 3: 17

1 John 4:16 says that God is love. The Triune God… Father, Son & Holy Spirit is the perfect expression of love and we are caught up in the very center of their love relationship. Paul the Apostle prays that because of the indwelling presence of Jesus in our hearts, we will be rooted and grounded in love.

The life of any plant or tree is the root system they have. If their roots are shallow or not well developed, they are at risk of being blown away or dried up. But the deeper the root system, the stronger the plant or tree is. It is amazing to see how some trees can withstand hurricane force winds just because they have a strong root system.

In the same way, the Spirit of the living God wants to root our hearts in the very depths of His love. The more that we become convinced of God’s love (Romans 8:37), the more we will know that nothing can ever separate us from His love. The more we become convinced, the deeper our root system goes.

Storms won’t be able to move us, trials won’t be able to cause us to question His love, nothing in all the world will be able to rock this revelation of love that is rooted deep into the heart of our Father. May today be a d

WISDOM THAT WORKS
WIVES AND PARTNERS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A worthy wife is her husband’s joy and crown; the other kind corrodes his strength and tears down everything he does”.

Read: Proverbs 12:4.

The title of today’s insight could be interpreted as a comment on the woman you live with whether your wife or partner. In these days of moral liberalism, when it comes to the God ordained institution of marriage, with a lifelong commitment to one partner, you could be forgiven for assuming that both titles are synonymous.

No! The thought behind today’s proverb is the often sad fact, that you can have a wife, or a husband for that matter, who is not really in partnership with you.

And even worse than that, you can have a spouse who actually does everything possible to negate your best and most worthy efforts.

There is something very precious about a husband and wife team that radiates joy and honour. Not because they are perfect in all their inter-relational life style, but because they have learned to be as supportive as possible, in spite of any shortcomings there might be in both of their temperaments.
The kind of woman who wants to make her husband look good is a treasure indeed and blessed is the man who is crowned with such honour. The “other kind” our proverb says will only demoralize their spouse to nothingness and destroy their every attempt to build something. Whoever you are, be the right kind

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Matthew Henry

Eve was not taken out of Adam’s head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.

The Scriptures were written, not to make us astronomers, but to make us saints.

Saying and doing are two things.

Extraordinary afflictions are not always the punishment of extraordinary sins, but sometimes the trial of extraordinary graces

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
ANSWERED PRAYER – Genesis 24

There was a real situation that required resolving with regard to Abraham’s son, Isaac. He needed the right wife and partner for life. The problem as v1 points out, ‘he was old, and well stricken in age.’ There was no way that he could take a long journey to get this pressing issue settled and dealt with. From the narrative it is apparent that he was prepared to trust the Lord to let Him act in the matter, and God was capable of performing on his behalf. He also was ready to look to his trusted servant to carry out his mind and will.

If ever he prayed it was concerning this matter, and whilst his servant was journeying he was asking the Lord for a successful trip. This evidently rubbed off on Eliezer because he asks God at a specific moment for guidance and assistance, which was immediately forthcoming – vv11-15. The Lord resolved it conclusively for both master and servant and prayer was answered. They could rejoice because had not failed in this difficult enterprise.

The Lord desires even today to step into your situation and affairs to prove that He both hears and answers prayer. He has His own unique ways of intervening and achieving the results that are essential for the progress of your life and loved ones. True praying is never wasted breath because it secures the attention and action of God. What a privilege to bring everything to God in prayer! He wills to work amidst all your needs and show His omniscience and omnipotence in all matters. There is no problem or prayer too big for God to answer so look to and ask Him to work the miracle for you.
