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 my shepherd: I shall lack nothing” – psalm 23;1

Psalm 23 is one of the most loved psalms. It has been recited in times of celebration, in times of loss and and everything in between. The author of this psalm was King David who had a good understanding of what it meant to be a shepherd. As a boy, David learned to care for the flock under his care so when he made the statement that The LORD was his shepherd, he knew what he was saying.

When David said I shall not want (KJV), he was basically saying that he would not be in need of anything because of the shepherding care of the Lord. The NLT Bible says I shall have all that I need. Shepherds look after their sheep in every way. They lead them to green pastures, they protect them and they provide all that they need to live a good life.

In John 10:12-16 Jesus tells us how a shepherd not only protects the sheep under his care but will gladly lay down his life for their safety. The truth is that Jesus is our great shepherd and because of His loving care we will have all that we need. My prayer is that the reality of this promise will go deep into our hearts today.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
STILL WATERS RUN DEEP –  Rev. Bob. Stevenson

”A wise mans words express deep streams of thought. It is wrong for a judge to favour the wicked and condemn the innocent”. Read: Proverbs 18:4-5

When, as a teenager, I committed my life to the claims of Jesus, I had no idea it was going to bring me benefits far beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. It was certainly more than having the assurance and the freedom gained from the penalty of sin.

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, I have now come to appreciate all the blessings and advantages that come from having a mind renewed by the mere exercise of reading the Bible and then wanting to put into practice what I had learnt.

You start to gain a perception and insight on life that helps you to see beneath the surface of what your five senses may tell you. You are not just carried along by the fickleness and shallowness of a mere superficial existence. This renewed approach enables you to question and evaluate everything on its own merits, because your understanding of the issues of life now has a frame of reference of a deeper and more certain quality.

All this ability to uncover or discover root causes and effects in the world around you, is the natural outcome of being renewed in the spirit of your mind. This depth of insight and wisdom is something which only God can give you, especially in matters concerning the more intangible issues of life.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
STRENGTH

Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved – Mattie Stepanek

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm – Abraham Lincoln

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles – Christopher Reeve

DAILY MEDITATIONS
SUPPORT THE LEADERSHIP AND MISSION – Joshua 1: 10-18

It is certainly encouraging to read of the re-action of the people to the new leadership and directive that was given. The response was both good and immediate. The people did not require any stirring or urging but were inspired and prompt to the summons. They were ready to support the leader and the fresh adventure that was being called for. There was to be no conference or debate for the Lord had settled the issue conclusively. All the revelation and confirmation had been given so all that was required was their acceptance and obedience. There was to be an immediate claim upon their commitment and allegiance.

It was encouraging to Joshua to observe that there was a 100% readiness on their part to embrace him in his new role and the immense task ahead. There came a full support that set things in motion for accomplishment. All could see that this was what was needed to be done and this expression of unity was an essential part of God’s will. He had justly proven himself over a long stretch of time and there was no one more suited to lead into the Promised Land. He was a man of vision, commitment; one to be wholly trusted with this major task.

We have all a supportive role to fulfil at this particular time within the work of Christendom, especially within the local church. The call of God is that we rise and respond to the divine direction that is being given, to stand with those whom He has appointed over us and to press on to achieve His objectives for our life’s purpose. The Israelites were able to write a great story of conquest and possession because of their commitment and so can we as we line up behind God’s servants and programme.
