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 Daily Promise Box, the Bible,  a Thought for the day from my pen, A Choice Quotation 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 from

A DAILY PROMISE FOR EACH DAY FOR YOU

Within the Bible are innumerable promises given to those who are committed to God in love, faith and obedience. They are of such a quality of character and sufficiency that through their reception and acknowledgement, God purposes to perform in every way in incredible way.  He wants you to know, receive and believe them and see His hand at work continuously through them.

The Christian believer must know what God the Father has to say; be ready then to accept and walk in His way. By so doing He will keep Satan at bay.

A Daily Promise

Guided in a Difficult Home Problem – Gen 21:1-26

Things got into somewhat of a mess because Abram listened to his wife Sarai. She was not perfect in faith and so sought to have a child through Hagar, the bond-maid – see Gen 16: 1,2. Little did she realize the problems to be encountered when Isaac her son turned up? She felt she had to get rid of the bond-woman and her son because she foresaw real problems. Abram was none to pleased about it and was greatly disturbed. But the Lord turned up and put the issue at rest with His guided word – vv-11-13. Hagar and Ishmael would be taken care of and so the problem was settled. It is well for you to know and understand that the Lord is in on family situations even when things turn awkward and uncomfortable. When things are very intricate He can give you the absolute direction required so that things are decently and amicably settled. The home unit is important to Him and you permit him to have His say and give His revelation.

Thought for the Day

CONTENTMENT

One of the greatest assets and benefits of your being and life is that of knowing and showing contentment. It is constantly experiencing perfect peace and satisfaction with your life’s lot whatever the situation, especially when things are far from easy and difficult. The reason why you can be in this state today, and at all times, is simply this; you have your LORD, Friend and Saviour with you and He is  there to inspire, uplift, give needful drive and energy, supply assurances that all will be taken of and so on. There is no need to be desperate or over-anxious because he ways and means to perform in the most impossible conditions. So do what Peter invites you today over the next hours: “Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you” – 1 Peter 5;8.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Charles Hadden Spurgeon

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

MEDITATION NOTES

A FEARSOME INCIDENT – 2 Samuel 6: 1-10

Things were on a high. Wonderful victories had taken place and looked to be going well in the progress of the kingdom. All were thrilled and excited with the turn of events that had changed Israel’s fortunes. In the heart of the king was the tremendous desire to honour the. Lord and he sensed that the appropriate thing to do was to bring the ark to the place where it should be, in the city of Jerusalem. It was a noble and worthy gesture and it certainly was the proper action to take.

With what joy they proceeded in the objective. A vast concourse of people with all kinds of musical instruments assembled to take and welcome the ark of God’s presence. Regrettably, it was not done the way it should have been carried out. Instead of consulting the Lord and His Word on the matter, they copied what the Philistines had previously done when they sent it back to Israel in placing it on a cart. The directive of the Lord was that it should be carried on the shoulders of the priests. When the cart shook in its journey, Uzzah did a foolish thing, he tried to steady the ark; it needed no assistance. It was a fearsome moment as he was struck dead and it created ‘fear’ in David’s heart that day concerning the Lord -v9.

There is a lesson to be learned from this incident: we must not act with undue familiarity with God and the things of God. How essential. It is to ascertain His mind and ways at all time. There is always the grave danger of assumption. In its outworking it creates major problems. It is worth spending time with God on all projects so that we discover precisely how we should proceed so that mistakes are not made. Worthy desires and plans are good, but they must be backed up by doing them in the way that He chooses, then we are safe and all will turn out well.
