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.

FINDING A WIFE – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“The man who finds a wife finds a good thing; she is a blessing to him from the Lord”. Read: Proverbs 18:22

Having had exposure to other cultures through out my life I have come to see the value of having an arranged marriage. When I say ‘arranged’ I don’t mean that the parties concerned have no say in who they eventually marry, but there is something to be said for a system that allows parents to act as a go between in the introducing of a man and woman to each other. I am sure there are failed marriages in this system of parental involvement, but it certainly has its benefits, especially if the parties concerned have the right to veto even the most well meaning of intentions of their parents.

Whatever approach you adopt, the main thing about finding a wife, or a husband, who will be a blessing from the Lord, is to at least have time to assess if you have the four ‘R’ questions adequately answered. First there has to be some physical attraction which we could call the Romantic question.

Then there is the question of Respect. Do you honour the personhood of the one you will spend the rest of your life with? Then how about Relationship? Do you truly relate to each other conversationally, educationally, temperamentally. Lastly, how about the question of religion? Are such convictions comfortable?

Whatever your system for finding a wife is be sure you get these four questions answered well. At least you stand a better chance of obtaining favour from the Lord!


Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life – Confucius

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work – Thomas A. Edison

The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today – Elbert Hubbard

Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work – Booker T. Washington


The Lord used the recent failure to mount a tremendous success in battle. The Gibeonites in their treaty with Israel enraged the other cities and nations by their deed and so a concerted effort was put forward by five kings to devastate, ruin and humiliate the Gibeonites. The help of Joshua and his forces were sought in the crisis against a formidable, united foe. It was not to be an easy assignment but God’s people arose to the summons to take on a major conflict. This was to be another great step forward in the contest for the Promised Land.

It was to prove to be an extraordinary occasion in the matter of battles because the Lord really became involved in the contest. He intervened by hurling down great hailstones on the enemy so that more were slain by Him and this method than by the forces of Israel – vv10, 11. He also responded to the prayer of Joshua and worked a miracle for him in the order of creation by causing the sun and moon to stand still so that they could complete the task – vv12-14. They were able to go ahead in finishing the battle and seeing the enemy completely crushed. It was a memorable day as the Scripture records – v14 “And there was no day like unto that before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of man: for the Lord fought for Israel.”

The Lord desires we should move on into overwhelming victories. It is not a case of a few skirmishes and small triumphs but a matter of magnificent conquest that should be ours. He wants to be with us in our contests and the greater the battles the greater His presence, interventions and success. Let us rise to whatever faces us and prove the power of God anew and have some extraordinary days on earth.
