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

“He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom. He will gently lead those who have their young” – Isaiah 40:11

In yesterday’s promise, we talked about the benefit of having a loving Shepherd lead us and guide us. Today we want to continue that thought with an amazing illustration of God’s love that comes from Isaiah 40:11. In this passage of Scripture, we see a very intimate picture of how God sees us as His little lambs.

He is the Great Shepherd who feeds us, carries us and leads us into greener pastures. If you struggle to feel God’s nearness, I would encourage you to meditate on this Scripture and picture yourself as a little lamb needing to be picked up. God uses many illustrations throughout the Bible to help us comprehend how He feels about us.

A little lamb is helpless, defenceless and completely dependent on its shepherd, just like we are! I pray that God will give each one of us the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation today (Ephesians 1:17) in greater measure so that we will really know that our God and Father carries us in His arms just like a shepherd carries a little lamb.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
JUST DO IT – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Lazy people want much but get little, while the diligent are prospering.

Read: Proverbs 13:4

Just “DO IT”, so goes the Nike Sportswear advertisement. Then there is the advertisement of the Government Heath Department of Australia which says “Take 30, its not a big exercise, in an effort to encourage people to do any kind of physical exertion for thirty minutes a day.

Yet in spite of all this motivation we continue to be a grossly overweight nation. There is even concern for the impact that video games have on our children in monopolizing so much of their interest. Their inactivity through sitting in front of a T.V. screen or computer to play their games is making them into an obesity problem at such an early stage in their development. .

Our proverb tells us that laziness only keeps you in a dream land of desire which wants a lot but will get little. On the other hand the diligent prospering in every part of their lives because they are prepared to just “DO IT”.

Diligence means the steady application of effort, by the exertion of the body or mind, in order to accomplish what has been purposed or undertaken. It is to give due attention or be industrious without undue delay. lI other words – just “DO IT” and in the process makes your calling and election sure – 2 Peter 1:10.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Dwight D. L. Moody

Preparation for old age should begin not later than one’s teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.

We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.

Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
A RADICAL ENCOUNTER/CHANGE – Genesis 32: 24-32

Little did Jacob know that night that it would turn out the way it did. In a state of loneliness he was to have the biggest encounter and fight of his life. He must have wondered at the first who his opponent was. Had Esau arrived ahead of time and purposed this personal duel? He knew from the onset that he was in a real tussle that threatened his life and future and a struggle that would require all his wit and strength if he was to succeed. He sought to put forth all of his prowess and energies in the hope of winning the contest. It was to be a long ordeal and when his thigh was put out of joint with a simple touch, Jacob must have realised this was no human encounter. The determination was to cling on more than ever to this divine visitor and combatant. It was to be a rewarding experience that was to benefit him in His relationship with God and also in His purposes for his life.

The end result was a name change and commendation. He was to become a ‘prince with God’ because he had ‘power with God.’ He had now made it in relationship with God and it was time to move into a place of spiritual identity and authority. From this day he could never ever be the same physically and spiritually. He would have a permanent limp naturally but spiritually he was to have a positive status in and before God. This meeting was not only to affect him but a whole nation to be born and blessed through him in God. Israel was to be reckoned with!

The Lord does meet us and enters into conflict with us in order to defeat the sin and self in us so that we may emerge from the dual utterly and personally transformed. He would encounter us in order to dynamically change and bring to spiritual princedom so that we might live with a new authority and role in life. May it be so!
