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

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me” – Isaiah 49:16

Today’s promise is part of a much loved Scripture passage from Isaiah 49:15-16 that describes the amazing mothering heart of Father God… “Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, these may forget, yet I will not forget you! Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me” – Isaiah 49: 16

In this passage of Scripture, we are told that even though a mother may forget her own nursing child, our God and Father will never ever forget us! He so desires to keep us in His sight that He has even engraved us on the palms of His hands.

When I think of this picture, I cannot help but think of the cross of Jesus Christ and His own nail scarred hands. I wonder if today’s promise was a prophetic picture of Jesus’ sacrifice at Calvary where our God would be forever reminded of us because of the finished work of Christ? He will not forget you!

You are always before Him. He loves you so much, that He has carved your name in the very palm of His hands. May the reality of this promise go deep into our hearts today.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

RASH PROMISES  – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Since the Lord is directing our steps, why try to understand everything that happens along the way? It is foolish and rash  to make a promise to the Lord before counting the cost”.

Read‘: Proverbs 20:24—25 1‘

Anyone who has ever entered the uncharted waters will attest to the fact of having to be extremely careful about making promises. Children have an incredible memory when it comes to remembering the slightest inclination of a promise to do this or that or go  here or there! There have been occasions when I have to admit that I have made some promises which I have afterwards regretted. Either I haven’t consulted my diary beforehand or something has cropped up which has genuinely prevented me. All the same; as my children  would point out to me, a promise is a promise — and that’s that — end of story.

To continually renege on a verbal commitment, for no valid reason, strikes at the very heart of integrity. If my words cannot be trusted, then what can?

It isn’t surprising that our four children have embraced this ethic, because it is of vital importance that for any relationship to flourish, you have to be able to trust the spoken word of promise.

If this is true about human relationships then how much more with God who sees, knows and remembers everything. Unlike our children, God may not say anything, but your integrity will come into question even though only you and God know what promises you make.

QUOTES TO NOTE

HOME

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action. Mother Teresa

Home is where the heart is. Pliny the Elder

Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love. Billy Graham

Home interprets heaven. Home is heaven for beginners. Charles Henry Parkhurst

DAILY MEDITATIONS

MAKING LIFE SECURE – Proverbs 3: 21-26

One of the purposes of wisdom is to put the safeguards into our lives so that we may be secured from setbacks that overtake many people. Wisdom seeks to present good rules of belief and conduct that if carefully and persistently adhered to ensure the well being of life. They are there to be a genuine preventative to tragedy. To motor on our highways we need to be conversant with the Highway Code so that we know how to drive with due care and attention. It is impossible to estimate how many have died before their time because they became heedless to the sound advice presented to them.

There are promises given here that are worth noting in making life secure. There comes the gracious adorning of life, the filling of life with pure and true energy, the bringing of honour and respect, deliverance from chaos and calamity, the keeping of one on track, the gift of sweet repose and the saving from panic and the living under the protection of God. These certainly are worthy considerations that should encourage all to pursue wisdom whatever the cost.

In life it is easy to be side-tracked by all kind of destructive factors. We have a responsibility to God, others and ourselves to make sure that we do not become foolish and act contrary to what is good. Seek to live secure and fully protected by wisdom – the wisdom that comes from God and His Word. In safeguarding yourself, it benefits others that observe your code of conduct.
