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

“Those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek you” – Psalm 9:10

When we know who God is, it is easy to trust in Him. When we are convinced that He is loving and kind and gentle, we will be able to risk again and entrust our hearts fully to Him. If we are not yet convinced of His goodness, we will struggle to trust Him.

I believe that giving our Father the gift of our trust is the greatest gift that we can give Him. When we trust Him, we lower our defenses and open our hearts fully to Him. When we trust Him, we will not lean to our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6) but completely yield to His leading in our life. I believe when we begin to trust God in a simple childlike way, it moves His heart like nothing else that we can do.

In today’s promise, we read that our God and Father will never, ever forsake those who trust in Him. He is unwavering in His commitment to us. He will never leave us or forsake us. For those of us who struggle with the fear of being abandoned, I pray that the reality of our Papa’s goodness and closeness would drive all fear out of our hearts (1 John 4:18) so that we can fully trust Him.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
ADRENALIN RUSH – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A man’s courage can sustain his broken body, but when courage dies, what hope is left? The intelligent man is always open to new ideas. In fact, he looks formthem”. Read: Proverbs 18: 14-15

We have all heard stories of exceptional feats of strength and courage, when the human frame has been pushed into overcoming really difficult circumstances, which in the natural would seem impossible to handle. Anecdotes abound in the annals of military conflict when men who have been severely wounded have somehow still managed to survive and display incredible courage.

Our hearts are always touched when we see on our Current Affairs programs some little child coming out of hospital having overcome some horrific injury. Although impaired by the loss of a limb or some other injury, we are shown footage of their triumphs over these impairments, and see the incredible courage they manifest in overcoming all these disadvantages. Then there is the multitude of instances that we never get to hear about of ordinary folk who have to cope with untold difficulties of many kinds. Yet amazingly they soldier on and display amazing courage, apart from which, it would be impossible to do what they do.

Courage is a marvellous stimulus, far greater than a mere adrenalin rush and anything that we can do to keep this courage alive, in those less fortunate than ourselves, must surely be a priority.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
TRUST

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none – William Shakespeare

Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships – Stephen Covey

For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth – Bo Bennett

DAILY MEDITATIONS
THE INITIAL CONQUEST – Joshua 6

The Lord was to give a unique way of victory at the first obstacle that confronted His people after negotiating Jordan. The city before them was a major hurdle to progress and revealed enormous difficulty. The city was strongly fortified with both an inner and outer wall thus presenting a massive problem for conquest. It states in v1 “Now Jericho was straitly shut up.” Joshua realised he needed the divine wisdom and strategy if there was to be success, and he received it.

The way to conquest revealed was rather strange. All that God’s people had to do was to quietly walk behind the ark being carried by the priests with the blasting of seven trumpets. The enemy would be viewing over the walls and wondered at this weird operation. It looked like an act of madness from one angle but it was learned previously that the crossing of Jordan was by a simple yet strange formula. The moment came when the walls fell flat and the city was taken and this became an assurance as to the possessing of the whole territory.

We are to be emboldened in our faith toward God. He wants to make known how to make progress and break forth into supreme conquest. The time has come for us to witness what He will do as we look to Him in establishing His gospel in our locality. We need to see our area really seeing God at work in supernatural power. There could be a situation that is completely closed up and there appears to be no way round or through, be assured, God possesses the capacity to miraculously alter in a moment. He has the perfect strategy in all impossible conditions.
