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

“Yahweh is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves those who have a crushed spirit” –Psalm 34:18

King David knew a thing or two about heartache. Whether it was being overlooked by his father when he was a shepherd boy, being chased down by a murderous father-in-law or publicly exposed for his deadly secret sins. In the midst of his own personal pain and suffering, David discovered that God was very close and was always ready to save those with a contrite spirit. If God is indeed close to those with a broken heart as David said He was, what does that mean for us today?

With all of the horror that goes on in the world, I can only imagine that our God and Father is walking alongside every broken-hearted person on the planet whether they are aware of His presence or not. I don’t think this idea is too much of a stretch because in Acts 2:17 we read that at Pentecost God poured out His own Spirit on all people. So if that is indeed the reality, God is closer that we could possibly imagine.

In some Christian circles though, we are afraid to expose our own personal brokeness for fear of being judged. Yet it is David, called ‘a man after God’s own heart’, who wrote Psalm 34. If you read David’s life story, you will know that he was not speaking in a hypothetical context, but right out of his own life experiences.

No matter what depth of despair you might be contending with in your own life today, may this promise encourage you that your Heavenly Father is very near.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
CYNICS  – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A truthful witness never lies; a false witness always lies. A mocker never finds the wisdom he claims he is looking for, yet it comes easily to the man with common sense”.

Read: Proverbs 14:5-6

Have you ever come across those individuals who express cynicism about everything you say. Every statement you make seems to be discounted as a load of rubbish or at worst a pack of lies and therefore unworthy of their consideration.

These poor folk find it impossible to believe anything even when it is explained to them in the greatest detail. It’s not that they just have a questioning mind and want to get at the truth of the matter, they positively ridicule or mock any of your suggestions no matter how genuine they might be.

This unhappy state of mind prevents the same people who claim they want to know the facts, from receiving anything at face value. At least having an open mind on the subject allows you to give thoughtful consideration as to the validity any claims being made. The cynics, on the other hand, have been soured by the same negative experiences that have now blinded them from seeing the positive before they see all the negatives.

No wonder the open minded find wisdom sitting on their doorstep, because it comes easily to them. The cynic or mocker is so trapped in his own prison that even when he looks for wisdom he never finds it.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
John Adams

Because power corrupts, society’s demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases.

Let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak, and write.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other

The happiness of society is the end of government.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
THE RIGHT MAN – Genesis 41: 32-49

It is one thing to have revelation of what is to be, it is also essential that there is a wise and proper implementation of a program and procedure that is to obtain the God had informed what was to be in the next 14 years but it was imperative that there should be a good administration that could put the knowledge to profit and advantage. Joseph could foresee this and so wisely and rightly advised the king as to how to deal with the coming situation – vv33-37. They must not allow this prophetic word to fail by doing nothing. The king immediately recognized the fact and so did his servants – v37 “And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharoah, and in the eyes of all his servants.”

The monarch was even more discerning – v38. He sensed that the right man for the job was before him and was ready to promote him to be the chief administrator in the enterprise. He had already proved his ability in handling property and people in Egypt, in Potiphar’s home and prison, and also given evidence of true character that merited this high office. He had earned the right to serve in this noble position. He was ready at the right moment to enter into the most responsible position and service and to do a worthwhile job and become a real saviour at that time.

God has been preparing you for a worthy role through many trying experiences. The day is to be when He will bring you forth to fulfil a greater role. The dreams He has given will be fulfilled, especially when your character has been made and your gifting released and developed in varying circumstances.
