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

“He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh; He will reward him” – Proverbs 19:17

In yesterday’s promise, we talked about how God says He won’t forget all the love you have shown Him by loving others. In today’s promise, King Solomon writes in Proverbs 19:17 that God promises to repay us when we give to the poor. This Scripture actually says that when we give to those who are needy we are actually lending to the Lord. I can’t think of a better person to have a business transaction with our God and Father.

There is an old saying that says “We can never outgive God”. My prayer today is that each and every one of us would see the incredible blessing there is for us when we are merciful to others just like our Heavenly Father is merciful to us. The whole point is not to give to others to get from the Lord, but it is such a wonderful thought that God sees our gifts to the poor as investments in Him and He promises to repay all that we sow in this life.

May each one of us embrace the joy of giving to those less fortunate around us because we know that God loves a cheerful giver!  May His dividends to you far outweigh your generosity! As Paul the Apostle exhorts us in 2 Corinthians 9:7-8…

Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you, always having all sufficiency in everything, may abound to every good work. (WEB)

WISDOM THAT WORKS

IT’S NO LAUGHING MATTER – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Do not rejoice when your enemy meets trouble. Let there be no gladness when he falls ~ for the Lord may be displeased with you and stop punishing him! Don’t envy the wicked. .”

Read.” Proverbs 24:17-20

There is something about human nature gets some sort of weird amusement when see a misadventure befall another. We have video programmes on our TV’s have captured somebody falling oft a or crashing into a tree We have video of little children unwittingly getting into difficult situations whilst bouncing trampolines and either falling oh‘ the completely or have the canvas split and they right through.

I must confess to my propensity to have a good laugh at these poor folks expense Now I’m not saying we can’t enjoy a bit of fun in way because in our heart of hearts we are not wishing any ill on these unsuspecting people

However what might our response be to a misadventure that has overtaken somebody who as done us some harm or maybe treated us shabbily’? Be careful of your attitudes and responses in such circumstances. Beware of the temptation to gloat over them Take are that you don’t happily attribute their downfall to them getting their Just desserts, for I we no knows what the Lord is seeking to do through their trials and tribulations They may well be the dealings of God in their lives, and your gloating attitude could be the thing that events them from recognizing such dealings of the Lord

A QUOTE TO NOTE – Abraham Lincoln

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A WISE DIRECTIVE – Ruth 3: 12-17

As Ruth returned to Naomi with a fullness of supply of barley, no doubt excited at what had just occurred, this woman gave her a wise directive – “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will fall.”  It was a piece of sensible advice to be given in the midst of the circumstances. She needed to quietly wait at home until the right actions and developments had taken place. The experienced person knew that bit extra and was able to soundly counsel her to wait at this stage in the proceedings. It was not a time for dashing around but sitting still in divine calmness and in a restful condition.

Waiting time was not wasted time because Naomi knew the type of man Boaz was.  He was the kind of person that would fulfil his responsibility with diligence and would see this matter through with good sense and speed. It was therefore possible to ‘sit still’ because of the one that was busy getting things sorted out could be entirely trusted on the issue. As Naomi reviewed her life and sensed the amazing out workings of God’s providence, she knew that the best thing was to be quietly patient and witness God at work on their behalf.

We do well to realise that our greater Boaz, Jesus Christ our kinsman-Redeemer, will not rest until He has accomplished all in our interest. He loves us so much and is so committed to our welfare and future in union with Himself, that He will not spare Himself until He has worked everything out perfectly for us. How essential it is, at times, to learn to ‘sit still’ until He has worked everything out according to His design! In Lamentations 3: 26 it states: “It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” Learn both how to wait on and for the Lord.
