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 heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds” – Psalm 47: 3

When we hurt, God’s heart is full of compassion towards us. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, He is called the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. When we are wounded, His desire is to bring healing to us. If you are struggling today with a broken heart, be comforted in knowing that your Heavenly Father understands everything that you are going through and wants to heal your broken heart.

In Psalm 103:13-14, the English Standard Version Bible it says… 13As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. (ESV)

When Jesus was moved with compassion, He healed the sick. When our Father is moved with compassion, He heals us too. My prayer today is that we would all know that we are not alone in our struggles, for our heavenly Father loves us with all His heart and His compassion will bring healing to every wounded area in our soul.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
RUMOURS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”What dainty s morsels rumours are. They are eaten with great relish”. Read: Proverbs 18:8

Rumour mongering is a common part of life and whilst ever there are those commentators around prepared to gossip their fanciful stories, which have absolutely no basis in fact, then rumours will keep flying.

The over abundance of so called ‘life’ magazines vying for our attention, give ample evidence of the human spirit’s insatiable desire for intrigue, gossip and a bit of character assassination thrown in for good measure.

The entertainment industry is a notorious breeding ground for the reporting of scandals designed to whet the appetite of a public, all too ready to believe everything they read. Their readers really enjoy the delights of embellishing such reports with their own particular interpretations and suggestions.
Then there are the malicious rumours, which get circulated about somebody’s personal life, which, whether true or not, will always leave some mud that will eventually stick, causing the possibility of severe personal damage to the one concerned.

There is always the temptation to pass on some juicy piece of information, which has not been properly corroborated. But I have found the best policy is to let them die a natural death and leave the final word to God!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
SYMPATHY

The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others – Albert Schweitzer

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live – Norman Cousins

Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all – Laura Ingalls Wilder

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight – Khalil Gibran

DAILY MEDITATIONS
CROSSING JORDAN – Joshua 3

There came a strategic moment in Israel’s history when they had to cross the river Jordan in pursuit of their destiny in God. This was a new generation that had not witnessed the miracle that had taken place at the Red Sea. It was a story and record that had been passed down to them by their forbears but they had never seen such a staggering spectacle. Jordan stood as a barrier and obstacle to their progress and to their possession. It would appear that it was also in a season of flood – v15, thus making things more difficult. How was the Lord to make a way? In answering this He did not resort to the former method and manner.

The ark of the covenant, representative of His presence and power, was to be carried by the priests and as their feet dipped in the waters the road would be made – v13. There had to be the act of faith and as this was done the Lord would demonstrate His greatness. Joshua is utterly assured and makes the declaration – v5 “Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” What a great prophetic word! The level of expectancy must have risen at such an announcement.

We need to know that the Lord is summoning us to experience real spiritual progress within. He wants to open up new ways for us today and to manifest His power within our affairs. As this was a divine sign to God’s people of old that they were to become conquerors and possessors, so the Lord would indicate to us, it is the moment of conquest and inheritance. Today is to be a day of signs and wonders.
