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

“Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path” – Psalm 119:105

Have you ever walked on a path in the forest in the middle of the night without a flashlight? If you have and there wasn’t a full moon shining, it is a pretty difficult thing to man-oeuvre. Without a light to guide the way, you will inevitably go off the  path and at the very least, bump into a tree.

I believe the psalmist in today’s promise is saying the same thing about the importance of God’s Word for you and me. In the grand scheme of things, we are only little boys and little girls who need all the help we can get. We do not have the navigational tools to manage our own life. We need both the written Word of God and the timely spoken  Word of God to guide us through this life.

It is comforting to know that our God and Father equips us with all we need to live a godly life including lighting our path as we take one step at a time. Notice that the psalmist doesn’t say that God’s Word lights the path miles in front of us. He says God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet.

May each one of us rejoice in the fact that God has committed the resources of heaven to guide us on our life’s journey. He has not left us in the dark to try to fend for ourselves, but has focused His Word like a huge beam of light at our feet to guide every step we take.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

MUMS THE WORD – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Listen to your fathers advice and don’t despise an old mothers experience”.

Read: Proverbs 23:22

“I don’t know if you have ever heard the Mums the word sharps the action I confess that I have not heard it for many now and I guess its another one of sayings of a bye-gone generation that is now defunct.

Its meaning is as follows If you are do something don’t argue about it just do quickly as possible!

Mothers seem to gain such a well experience of life in the area of child Its probably because that maternal never leaves them even when their have left the roost to establish their families Mothers particularly learn the quirks of human behaviour by having to nurse and nurture children from the baby stage through to adolescence They not only have function as prosecutor, defendant, judge and jury but also function in the context of the different temperaments and personalities of their children They become adept at assessing and responding  to a  myriad of changing circumstances in family life and development. They become the custodians of a wealth of experience with every year, experience that can be well applied by the next adult generation if they are prepared to receive it.

Take the advice of today’s wisdom and don’t short-change your mother’s know-how.

A QUOTE TO NOTE – Matthew Henry

The Scriptures were written, not to make us astronomers, but to make us saints.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A UNIQUE PROVISION – Judges 15

This deliverer found himself in quite some difficulty after wreaking vengeance on the Philistines – vv1-8. Even his people also were under great threat – v9. They felt if Samson surrendered to them this threat would go away and so asked for this – vv11-13. Although they felt weak and intimidated, this was not so of him.  He allowed himself to be bound and to taken to them knowing that the Lord would help him with His inspiration and might. One with God would be more than a majority!

The Lord certainly came with enduement by His Spirit because it states: “And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistine shouted against him: “and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him . .” – v14. That was enough to empower and incite action. With the simple weapon of a jawbone of an ass he slew a thousand men. What a victory! It was thirsty work! Afterwards he found himself in a weak condition and in need of refreshment and God showed to him that the tool of victory was to be his means of refreshment. Water flowed from a hollow in the lifeless jawbone.

Sometimes we are left alone to face the foe, even those that ought to be with us are not as they should be, but that should not deter us from being full of faith and courage. We need to lead, irrespective of the opposition or the situation of our fellow believers, knowing the Lord will be with us to give His presence and a significant victory. There will also be a source of renewal opened to us as required so that we can be refreshed for further action.
