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

”Let us acknowledge Yahweh. Let us press on to know Yahweh. As surely as the sun rises, Yahweh will appear. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain that waters the earth” – Hosea 6:3

God is faithful. He is always faithful and we can count on Him in every situation. We don’t have to give it a second thought. Today’s promise encourages us that our God and Father will come to us as certain as the sun will rise in the morning. Even on days where the clouds cover the earth, His sun is still shining in the heavens. And when rain is needed, He showers His blessing upon the dry ground.

If you feel discouraged or disheartened today, if your circumstances are shouting loud that God is no where to be found, be encouraged! He is closer to you than you could possibly imagine. I pray that you will know that He is faithful and He will come to you as certainly as the sun rises in the morning.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
MANUAL LABOUR – Rev. Bob. Stevenson

“Everyone admires a man with good sense, but the man with a warped mind is despised. It is better to get your hands dirty – and eat, than to be proud to work and starve”. Read: Proverbs: 15:8-9 I started out my working life as an apprentice sign writer. Coming from a working class family my evident artistic skills were seen as a means whereby I could earn my living. l enjoyed my days in the sign business, which developed over the years into involvement in the whole gamut of skills in outdoor and indoor advertising.

Then the day came when God called me to serve Him in a full time capacity which meant leaving my chosen profession to engage in missionary service overseas. In those days there was no guarantee of any financial support but as l write this insight, nearly fifty years after that initial call, I am able to look back on a more than abundant provision of the Almighty for myself and my family.

However, at the outset of this call, l made a decision that if ever there was not enough income to service adequately all the needs of my family, l would simply pull out my sign writing toolbox and earn any income that was required.

In the scheme of things there have been occasions when both the call of God and secular employment have had to go hand in hand and l trust by the grace of God I will never be too proud to get my hands dirty!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Saint Augustine

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
PERSONAL DISCOVERY – Genesis 25:11; Psalm 68

There are certain things that we have to discover and know for ourselves and that to a point is independent of others in relation to God. For over forty years Isaac had lived under the spiritual covering of a believing father, but things were to decidedly change. His dear dad would not be around forever. The phrase, “And it came to pass” does indicate things move on and there is more to be born and brought to pass. Isaac was to discover something fresh and more for his life. The death of father did not mean the end but the revelation of something special in relation to God and life. And the same can be for you!

The sure word says, “that God blessed his son Isaac.” It was now his time and turn to move into a brand new experience. A different course was now being marked out for him with the knowledge that God’s favour was to rest upon him in a personal capacity. He was to be his own person in God: to know God on the individual front and to enter into a real phase of divine blessedness. It must be noted that God is referred to as ‘the God of Isaac.’ We need to appreciate God likes the personal association and to grant blessing individually even as the psalmist underlines – “He daily loadeth me with benefits” – Psalm 68: 19. It is to be a personal encounter and experience for us all.

Mention is made of the fact that he had the good sense to dwell by a well so that he had a means of nourishment close at hand. There are spiritual wells that we need to be near so that we can draw upon them for our life sustenance. Your local church is to be such in your life so that you can live in a state of renewal and refreshing. Be sure you are present to give of blessing as well as to receive. Discover the advantage of having a well at hand.
