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

”I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” – Psalm 56:11

Fear of man is a powerful debilitating force in our world today. It will keep us from taking risks and it will keep us from being the person God made us to be. If we are afraid of what others think, or what they will do to us, we are kept in a prison of their control. God wants us to be free and He does not want us to live in fear.

The only way to deal with fear is to embrace the love that God has for us and allow perfect love to drive all fear away. (1 John 4:18) Trust is the key. Knowing that our God and Father has our best interests at heart all the time.

In this promise, the psalmist makes a declaration that he will put his trust in God and not be afraid of what man can do to him. May faith rise up in our hearts today as we agree with Romans 8:31, where the Apostle Paul declares “If God is for us, who can be against us?”.

May each one of us continue to grow in the incredible freedom of the children of God, and not live in the place of being afraid.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

A MOTHER’S PRIORITY – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“These are the wise sayings of King Lemuel of massa, taught to him at his mother’s knee. Oh my son, whom I have dedicated to the Lord…..2

Read: Proverbs 31: 1-7

King Lemuel of Massa, whoever he was, was  blessed man indeed to have a mother like he had. She obviously had a strong and vibrant faith in the living God. She also had a very perceptive disposition which gave her insight into human behaviour, insight that she was able to pass on to her son.

When it comes to accepting responsibility for one’s actions this lady came top of the class. Firstly she didn’t just assume her son was going to tum out well in later life, she took positive steps to make it happen.

In line with this admirable characteristic, at her earliest opportunity she dedicated him to the Lord. She believed that to have the Almighty looking after him was the best insurance policy she could take out on him. dedication of our offspring to the Lord is not just some necessary religious ritual we need perform as our parental duty. No! It invites the providential hand of a loving heavenly Father to be placed upon our little ones so as to give them all the protection they may require their formative years.

To dedicate our little ones is to acknowledge the Divine Ownership of our children and ourselves as stewards of the precious lives He has given us.

Let’s be sure we too make this our priority!

QUOTES TO NOTE – Harriet Beecher Stove

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

WHO AND WHAT TO TRUST – Psalm 5

The fear factor is a very real thing. David does not hide the fact that at times he was fearful. Although we consider him to be a youth and man who knew what it was to demonstrate such boldness and courage, at the same time he makes us aware that there were moments when he had to contend with fear. Possibly that was his biggest enemy. He does say in v3 – “What time I am afraid . .” so it shows he knew those experiences of dread and foreboding and had to deal with them just like us. Before he knew what it was to have victories of an external nature and order he had to deal with his internal condition.

The reasons why he became a master of fear is given in vv4, 10. He discovered throughout life that though he could not trust himself or others, he could place and pin his faith in God and His Word. Never at any period or situation had the Lord failed but had been sufficient to give His wisdom and strength and to bring about real triumph. The testimony of his life was that the Lord enabled him to face all sorts of impossible circumstances and see major success. In v9 he makes this assured declaration – “this I KNOW; for God is FOR me.” This is what made the difference!

You may be facing today circumstances that awaken all kinds of feelings of dread and distress. As you look at yourself and resources you sense your utter weakness and know that you will fail if it is left to you. Take time out to link in with the Lord and His Word and discover that He is with you to give revelation and His help so that you will more than meet the extreme demand facing you. There is no need to wilt and wither at what is confronting; the Lord will strengthen both by His presence and word and give the essential victory.
