WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

 Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 135,000 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

”Oh give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever” –       1 Chronicles 16:34

In the Garden of Eden, when Satan tempted Adam and Eve, he was primarily questioning the goodness of God. “Did God really say…” He tried to portray a view of God that was skewed and distorted… That God was insecure and didn’t want the best for Adam and Eve. That God wasn’t good.

The enemy’s tactics are the same today as they were back then. He continues to question the goodness of God at every turn. My encouragement to you is to simply believe the truth about God and make a declaration to the heavens that He is really good and His love endures forever!

The love that God has for us will not change today, tomorrow or in eternity. It will endure forever! The very foundation of our God and Father’s heart is goodness and love. No matter what happens in life, I would encourage you to not side with the accuser and question your Father’s goodness. Our God is good and He is loving beyond comprehension.

In the midst of any storm that you are going through, His love will cause even the worst situation to turn for good (Romans 8:28). May faith rise up in our hearts to know this on a level that is deeper than we have ever known it before and declare that the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

BITTERNESS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“There are three things that make the earth tremble – no, four it cannot stand: A slave who becomes king. A rebel who prospers. A bitter woman when she finally marries. A servant girl who marries her mistresses husband”.

Read: Proverbs 30:21,

The earth, or rather its populace, have every right to feel disturbed at the prospect of these four scenarios materializing. Such apprehension is well founded because the achieving of any of these objectives with a maladjusted temperament is sure to see the sparks fly one way or another. Temperamental dysfunction in whatever form it displays itself will never bring a harmonious outcome. All of these four scenarios have the distinct possibility of being influenced by bitterness and its resultant who marries her mistresses behaviour

A slave promoted to ultimate authority stands the chance of his resentments being projected on those he now controls

A rebel at heart will mistakenly imagine that his prosperity is the payback for a life lived with a on his shoulder and his ability to flout every known convention and get away with it. Any relationship that has to endure unresolved past conflict is destined for disaster no matter how cleverly that hurt has been disguised.

Finally, there is the inevitable bitterness that can follow when those who once served, now take the ascendancy, and we get pushed into second place. Somebody once aptly observed, “It takes more grace than l can tell to play the second fiddle well”. Whatever the cause, bitterness is a cruel master so be sure not to allow it to rule you!

QUOTES TO NOTE – Nelson Mandela

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

FOCUS ON GOD – Psalm 50

From the contents of this psalm, the thought that presents itself, as from God, is that the focus must be upon Him and what He has to say and reveal. Attention must be given to Him so that there is a clear understanding of Him on vital issuesHe makes it plain that He is Israel’s God – v7 and He is their true Judge – v6. In His justice there is no likelihood of error or mistake. They really need to know Him and what He seeks from them. As they get to know Him they will begin to sense what an invaluable asset He is to life and experience.

He focuses their minds on the fact that He is the real owner of everything and that He does not require any sacrifice of any animal to appease or satisfy Him – vv8-13. They must get this into their thinking and theology. Although Israel had a system of sacrifice in their approach unto Him, it must realize that God was not desperate for these slain victims. What concerned Him most were their faith and obedience – v14 and the fact that He desired to be an answer to them at all times. He stated in v5 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” This is a good focus to have: seeing God as the answer to all life’s needs and problems.

It is essential each day to have a genuine focus on God. He wants us to find time to listen to Him through His Word and discover His mind and thoughts to us so that we get a true perception of Him in our lives. As we do so, we will get the proper emphases on the things that really matter, and the end result, we will know Him better and we shall see Him fully operational in all of our affairs.
