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

GOLDEN PROMISE

“The friendship of Yahweh is with those who fear him. He will show them his covenant” – Psalm 25:14

King David is the author of this psalm. Today’s promise talks about how God shares His secrets with those who fear Him. It is important that we know that the word ‘fear’ isn’t intended to mean that we are afraid of God, rather that we revere Him and deeply respect His awesome power.

This promise paints a very intimate picture for me. I imagine a father taking time out of his busy day to put his arm around one of his little ones to share a secret with them. After making sure no one else is around to hear their conversation, he whispers something so quietly that no one else can hear them talk.

Isn’t it amazing to think that our God and Father wants to share His secrets with us? Doesn’t it blow your mind to think that we are friends of God? I am convinced that the Lord is always looking for those whom He can share His heart with.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

HIDDEN  HOSTILITY – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A man with hate in his heart may sound pleasant enough, but don’t believe him; for he is cursing you in his heart. Though he pretends to be so kind, his hatred wilt finally come to light for all to see”.

Read: Proverbs 26:24-26

To harbour hatred for anyone will have serious repercussions for both parties concerned, but to disguise such hatred with some pretence of kindness and outward acceptance, is doubly dangerous.

A bitter spirit can soon spiral out of control on the downward slope of ultimate self destruction. The sinister aspect of today’s warning is the pretentious cover up of the true feelings that can be seething below the surface.

So what are we to do with such a malicious stratagem? How should we respond to such a two faced disposition toward us? What should be our stance in the face of what the indigenous Indians of America referred to as someone who speaks with a fork tongue. The answer is too simple for words! Absolutely nothing! In fact, whether you are oblivious of this hidden hostility or not makes no difference. Whether you sense there is hatred between all the smooth talk and hypocritical pretence of kindness matters not! All you have to do is zero, nix, nothing! Why nothing? Because the less emotional and mental space you allow such an attitude to take up in your life the better it will be for all concerned.

After all, such hidden hostility will finally be revealed one day when the secrets of every heart are uncovered. (See Rom 2:16)

QUOTES TO NOTE –  H. Jackson Brown (Jnr)

Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A LOST DESTINY – 1 Samuel 15:  12-35

Saul had everything to live for with God on his side and with the position of authority that had been graciously bestowed him. There had been the establishment of his vocation and the kingdom to his people but at this point he was to be denuded of it. What had been his was to be lost and never regained. It is a very telling account of how possibilities can be very great and within reach but how they can be missed because of the failure to honour the Lord and to adopt divine principles in the governing of life. He who would govern aright must be governed by God the true Governor.

In observing his failure and noting his and Samuel’s words, it becomes obvious what contributed to his downfall and loss. There was the sight of the loot, the pressure of the people and the fact of his own inherent pride. Things, people and inward arrogance became the cause of his demise and it seems the latter, pride, was the real problem. Success had gone to his head and he felt he could act in an independent role and capacity. Maybe the people had shown some pressure but it was a lame excuse for his disobedience to the command of the Lord and so becomes a reject.

So much of great destiny is extended in Christ to the Christian believer and servants of Christ. It is important to make certain that it is not missed through acts of folly caused by pride. It is imperative to know assuredly what God’s will is at all times and adhere strictly to His directives for they have our well being and future in view. Make an all out effort to discover everything that God has purposed for your life. Seek His grace and power to achieve; and you will.
