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 the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my loving kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed,” says Yahweh who has mercy on you” -Isaiah 54:10

I like how the New International Version Bible translates Isaiah 54:10… Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. (NIV)

Nothing will ever shake the unending, eternal love that God has for you. The mountains will vanish away and the hills will be removed before His heart for you changes. No matter what you are going through in your life, His love for you is constant. And that is because God can only love at one intensity… and that is with ALL His heart! Jesus told us that His Father loves us the same way that He loves Him (John 17:23).

There may be wars and rumors of wars. There may be upturns and downturns in the economy. But no matter what happens in your life, the unending love of God will never leave you. My prayer today is that the relentless, endless, intense love of your heavenly Father will sweep over your heart so that you can echo the words that the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:38-39…

WISDOM THAT WORKS
HARD YAKKA – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Discipline your son in the early years while there is hope. If you don’t you will ruin his life. A short tempered man must bear his own penalty; you cant do much to help him. Ifyou try once you must try a dozen times! – Read: Proverbs 79: 18- 19 1

For non Australian readers the words ‘hard yakka’ will be a complete mystery. It roughly equates to the phrase ‘Its hard going’. It means the lack of any respite in the completion of a task especially in the context of physical manual labour

It comes out of the experiences that the early settlers had to endure in carving out an existence in the harsh and sometimes unforgiving land of the Australian outback.

Hard Yakka has now been taken as a brand name for heavy duty industrial clothing worn in the mining and construction sector. In today’s proverb ‘hard yakka’ so aptly describes the challenges of living with somebody with an angry belligerent disposition.

It is nothing short of emotional hard yakka to try to help, let alone live with someone who is short tempered. What do you do? Do you confront their problem? Do you placate them? Do you try to reason with them? It seems that they are their own worst enemy, and short of having a mighty encounter with God, who can help them lengthen their shortened fuse? Unfortunately it’s just going to be hard yakka whatever you try to do! But hang in there because you might be the only person able to help them out of their dilemma!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
BEAUTY

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul – Saint Augustine

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy – Anne Frank

Beauty is power; a smile is its sword – John Ray

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open -Jawaharlal Nehru

DAILY MEDITATIONS
WANTING MORE – Joshua 17

Following the conquest there was the dividing of the land into lots for each tribe so that they could both settle down and begin to exploit their inheritance. Each tribe, family and person had to get down to the business of knowing, receiving and making good their rights of possession to advantage and blessing. After all, this was God’s definite intention for them and so it was imperative that they achieved this.

The children of Joseph made a complaint to Joshua, making the point, that they had not been given enough in terms of inheritance. In v14 “Why have you given us but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as the Lord has blessed me hitherto?” It shows they were not satisfied but wanted more. This was a good thing. They did not want any limitation. The counsel given was good and came in the form of a challenge on two fronts: extra land meant hard work and also the facing of more powerful foes. Joshua said, “You can do it” – v18. If they were prepared to go for it, believe and work hard, they would extend their borders.

God does not put everything on a plate for us without us having to do anything. That would not be profitable to us. He wakens the desire in us for much more and gives us the vision of the possibilities and makes known He will give us the potential to realize them. Enlargement is in the mind of God for us at every level but we must be ready to go forth and exploit every situation and ourselves in the process. God speculates with us so that we can accumulate in and through Him. Be ready for the fresh challenge for growth both in your life and work.
