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

“Blessed be Yahweh, who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. There has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by Moses his servant” – 1 Kings 8:56

God is not a man that He should lie. Every promise that He has made will come to pass because He is faithful to do all that He has said that He will do. In a world of broken promises and disappointing authority figures, it is easy to become cynical and untrusting. Our negative life experiences with people can cause us to mistrust God in the same way.

In today’s promise, we are reminded that God keeps His promises. All of them. We may not understand His ways at times, but He is always true to His Word. Trust is a huge part of the foundation of our faith. If we struggle to trust Him, we will struggle to believe what He says is true.

My prayer today is that God will restore childlike trust to each of our hearts in increasing measure so that we will have every confidence that every promise that our Papa makes will come to pass!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
PLOTTING OR PLANNING
Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Truth stands the test of time; lies are soon exposed. Deceit fills the hearts that are plotting for evil; joy fills hearts that are planning for good”.

The English language gives us two words to describe the same processes which are necessary in arriving at an intended solution or end objective.

Whether plotting or planning there are certain requirements that are common to both. You have to think about the goal or objective you want to achieve. Then you have to put some strategy in place to help you get there. Thirdly you have to consider whether you have the necessary resources to get the job done. And finally you have to weigh up the benefits that will come to you as a result of your efforts.
The only thing that is different is what that end result is going to be. If it is a “planning exercise” it will usually conclude, if successful, with all the parties concerned being satisfied and fulfilled at a job well done.

It  is a plotting exercise then the whole process, whilst being exactly the same, is with deceptiveness and wrongful motivation which will only conclude with harm eventuating in one form or another.
Be sure your planning comes out of a joyful heart, because a deceitful heart will only produce a plot that will ultimately cause you trouble!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Thomas Fuller

If you have one true friend you have more than your share.

Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it

He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.

A gift, with a kind countenance, is a double present.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD – Genesis 28

Jacob never thought that as a he set out on this journey in fear and trembling how things were going to turn out. It was to be the beginning of a remarkable spiritual exercise that was to transform his whole life and future. He would come to know God and to realize he need not have engaged in the procedure of robbing his brother of the birthright or deceive him over the blessing.

As he lay his head to rest that night he was to have an encounter with God. The Lord was turn to up in a dream and assure him as to his future in every way – vv12-15. His destiny was in the hands of God and as he responded to Him then all would end up well. He makes his commitment and erects a pillar in commemoration and names the spot – Bethel = house of God. The Lord’s presence and word was more vital and valuable than all that had preceded. It was now forward with God. God had met him in a seeming no man’s land and guaranteed his security and blessedness.

We need an encounter with God. He seeks to break in upon our lives just like Jacob to effect a tremendous breakthrough. He will turn up and begin to show us that He will take charge of our lives and future and bring about His destiny in us. Little did this man know the track ahead and neither do we, but he was sure that the Lord was in control and would bring about the best. So for us, the Lord reveals Himself to us to prove that He cares, and that the days ahead are covered by His wisdom and direction at all times. The encounter is to lead on to an ever-deepening experience of His presence and intervention in all related details of life and living. Jacob’s God is your God!
