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, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Yah, Yahweh, is my strength and song; and he has become my salvation.” – Isaiah 12:2

God loves it when we trust Him. Trusting God is truly committing our lives into His care and not trying to manage life all on our own. In Proverbs 3:5-6, we are encouraged to trust in the Lord with all our heart and to not lean to our own understanding. God wants us to lean into His care today and not depend upon our own ability to manage life.

When we realize that our God and Father is indeed trustworthy, then we will not be afraid of anything that comes our way. We will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the LORD is our strength and our song and our very salvation. However, before we can truly enjoy the benefits of living a fearless life filled with God’s strength and His song, we need to deal with the trust issue.

God wants to restore childlike trust to each one of us. The trust that was broken when we were little children can be restored in our relationship with our Heavenly Dad because He is indeed trustworthy in every way. My prayer is that we would all would trust in our Abba more today than we did yesterday and that our ability to trust in God would increase every day for the rest of our lives.

God is our salvation. We will trust in His goodness and not be afraid. He is our strength and the song that we sing every day. Hallelujah for such a wonderful salvation!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

GRACE AND TRUTH – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Throw out the mocker and you will be rid of tensions, fighting and quarrels. He values grace and truth is the king’s friend. The Lord preserves the upright but ruins the plans of the wicked”.

Read: Proverbs 22:10-12

Grace and Truth are like twins who are never far from each other. You see, grace is the ability to show favour and kindness even when the truth of the matter really is that you might not deserve it. Even more than that is the fact that the one showing grace is more than aware of your un- deservedness yet still chooses to extend to you the benefit of such undeserved favour.

This is why it was said of Jesus when he came into the world, “The Law came by Moses but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”. (John 1:17) Grace does not have to bend to our shortcomings before it can operate effectively. Neither is it because we measure up to every requirement of the Law, No! It comes to us, in spite of the fact that we don’t measure up.

How important then that we ourselves do not look for some impossible standard to be reached by others before we are prepared to extend to them our own undeserved favour and kindness.

How true those words are, “To err is human, to forgive is Divine”. Like the proverb asserts, all the effort we make to extend grace and kindness to others, in spite of what might dictate otherwise, will bring the reward of a friendship with the King of Kings — King Jesus!!

QUOTES TO NOTE – Francis Bacon

Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.

The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.

Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

AN INSPIRED MESSAGE – Judges 6: 1-12

Things were very extreme and difficult. Israel had real problems. For seven years they felt the domination of the Midianites and they had the major task of maintaining a livelihood and existence in impossible conditions. No sooner had they sown and grown their crops when the invasions came and they were virtually robbed of the natural means of life. It wasn’t a very good time to be alive because of this evil. It was all because of their sin and they realised it and cried to the Lord – v7. Knowing they were wrong and who to turn was the vital step to progress.

His response was to visit and call a man and greet him with quite an astounding inspired message – “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valour” – v12. Gideon must have wondered who He was talking to and about! As far as he was concerned, he was anything but this sort of person. He was no better than the others around him, and circumstances seemed to confirm this. But the Lord saw what he didn’t! The Lord noted immense potential in him and the possibility of a great work being done through him. He could see more than what Gideon could discern in himself.

The Lord still employs this tactical and spiritual approach. He encounters people and speaks generative and positive words into their beings, revealing that He has the highest hopes and destiny for them. Today He would let you know that you were born into His kingdom to achieve great things. Accept His word on the matter and allow Him to work it all out for His glory. Never underestimate the revelation that God speaks in and over your life for he knows better than you. Step out on God’s Word and you will be surprised at what He will achieve through your commitment.
