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

“For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly” – Psalm 84:11

God is good and every good and perfect gift comes from His hand (James 1:17). Today’s promise once again reaffirms this truth. He will not withhold any good thing from those who have an upright heart. The enemy of our souls would want us to believe the opposite… That God isn’t good and that He is distant and angry.

My prayer today is that each one of us would reject every lie that would try and make us believe that God isn’t who the Bible says He is, so that we can align our thoughts and prayers with the truth that the Lord is good and His mercy will endure forever!

May the sense of His goodness flood your soul today and may you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is your sun and your shield. The truth is that He loves you with all of His heart and He will not withhold any good thing from you.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
SPEECH THERAPY  – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Kind words are like honey – enjoyable and healthful”. Read: Proverbs 16:24 No I’m not talking about those wonderful individuals who help people with talking disabilities to improve their speaking skills. I’m talking about the amazing capacity of words of kindness to be so therapeutic in every aspect, that after hearing such words, you really do feel good.

Having recently been introduced to the benefits of honey, not only as a sweetening agent, but as a healing agent, I am all the more ready to connect with the health giving properties of kind words.

In a mainly negative world, we are all too prone to neglect the verbalization of some words of kindness or appreciation. We should be doing it far more regularly. Even to the point of making a determination in our regular verbal interaction to say complimentary things about people and more especially those who are close to us.

I was recently in a small group setting where we were given a slip of paper with a group members name on it. We all had to say what it was we admired about that person. It was nothing short of staggering to see the affects of those affirmations on the various group participants. I will never forget my own feelings of delight and gratitude which l experienced when my turn came to be appreciated.

As our proverbs points out, it’s most enjoyable and certainly healthful and therapeutic.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
INTELLIGENCE

A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether – Roy H. Williams

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits – Albert Einstein

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it – Henry Ford

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change – Stephen Hawking

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
AVOID BEING A REBEL – Numbers 16

A real conflict arose amongst Israel’s ranks. A group of people met and decided to challenge the divine leadership that God had given under Moses and Aaron. It was apparent that these two had been anointed and gifted to do an extraordinary task and they had graciously fulfilled their respective roles. However, Korah reasoned that they were not the only ones and gathered a group around him to challenge this. It was argued, “You take too much upon you . . . . wherefore lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD” v3–.

It threw Moses on his face toward the ground humbled before God and realizing that it was an issue only He could sort out. He did not want to become infected with this bad spirit and attitude. He felt it was something that the Lord must deal with. God only could handle this personal matter and so he submitted himself and the situation to Him. The record shows that God dealt with the rebels and disposed of them in quite a remarkable manner.

We must avoid absorbing ideas and attitudes that lead into rebellion even though such may seem good and justified. It is imperative to be disciplined in the mind and attitude of God and not to get involved with things that lead to personal ruin and regret. There are some causes we must not get infected and involved with no matter how legitimate they appear to be. If we are being threatened with regard to our position, we must learn to hand things over to God and let Him deal with it.
