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 as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing I sent it to do” – Isaiah 55:10,11

In today’s promise, God says that His Word is poured out onto the earth just like the rain and snow fall in their appointed seasons. God’s intent is to water every manner of seed so that it will blossom to its full potential. His Word is like that for us. We can drink in everything that He says and eat every word that He speaks. Jesus told us… ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

It is my prayer today that we would all be aware of how God is speaking to us right now. I believe we can tune our hearts to the voice of God in a similar way that we would adjust the frequency of our radio to tune into our favorite radio station. If we aren’t tuned into our Father’s frequency, we might miss out on what He is saying. As Jesus said to the churches in Revelation 2 and 3… “To him who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying”.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of our lives today, may each one of us quiet our hearts for a moment and listen to hear what God wants to say to us. Be comforted in knowing that every word that our Father speaks will not return to Him empty, but will accomplish what it sets out to do!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

COMPROMISES – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Good news from far away is like cold water to the thirsty – If a godly man compromises with the wicked, it is like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring.”

Read: Proverbs 25:25-27

Compromise is a legitimate part of life irrespective of who you are. You may be a mother trying to strike the balance between graciously teaching important principles of acceptable behaviour to your children, or becoming some harsh disciplinarian. You might be a negotiator faced with the decision of choosing the lesser of two evils in order to achieve an acceptable outcome. The point about compromise is more often than not, not what you compromise about, but who you compromise with. It is far easier to make compromises with someone when you know that they bear you no malice or evil intent. You don’t have a problem compromising when you know you can have the upper hand if you want it, and then choose not to take such an advantage. However, there are areas of our character, disposition and beliefs which need to be non-negotiable. Your own personal integrity, value system and convictions should be so precious  to you that to compromise those values is a no go area.

After all to compromise those values by which you live, could spoil forever the character you have established by adhering to those values and convictions.

Whoever those people may be, who expect you to make such compromises, should never be allowed to prevail.

A QUOTE TO NOTE – Henry Adams

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A VITAL MESSAGE – 1 Samuel 9: 21-27

The young man, Saul, had been significantly surprised over the recent events, especially that the prophet had expected his arrival and that the Lord had chosen him to fulfil such a destiny. That ordinary day had turned out to be rather extraordinary and the problem of the asses had been sorted out. As he put his head on his pillow that night he must have wondered and been overwhelmed at the things that had overtaken him. No wonder they rose early the next morning – v26. It could have been a sleepless night as he reviewed everything that had occurred.

The prophet was to impart to him a sound piece of divine counsel that needed to become the basis of his life and future calling – “but  stand still a while, that I may show you the word of God” – v27. Listening to what God had to say and following it through in faith and obedience was to be the important governing principle of his being if he was to succeed. Here was a fundamental factor that needed to be grasped and held on to at the start and throughout his career.

We show a great deal of wisdom and sense when we accept and abide by this principle and procedure, taking time out in particular to discover what God has to say into our lives. The purpose is for God to guide us aright so that we might achieve His magnificent destiny for our lives.  The real foundation of progress and success lies in our knowledge of God’s precise will for our lives and ministries confirmed through His revealed Word. Make sure at this juncture that you get to know exactly what His will is so that you may pursue it with all spiritual desire and diligence.
