A GOLDEN PROMISE from the Bible



The same Lord that created and redeemed you in and through Christ has the capacity to heal you when you are smitten with sickness and disease or any evil complaint. He could assure a whole nation that He had freed from slavery that He was well able to look after their physical state. He was their NHS. Even though they may be afflicted by some chronic and threatening affliction, He was more than able to delver and make them perfectly whole. If they would respond to is loving laws and commands then they could be kept free from all devastating maladies. They would have a wonderful bill of health. The clear promise given then still holds good: “If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD your God, and do that which is right in His sight, and will do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to his commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you . . . . for I AM the LORD that heals you” – Exodus 15: 26.

Thought for the Day


It was by reason of the Lord’s great goodness that you were made a son of God and was brought into His royal, eternal Household. Now you have great prospects for life as well as an eternal future filled with immense possibilities. The good work that has been wrought in you is purposed very much to commence untold good works through you by the presence and enabling of the Lord. You are called and equipped to work for the blessedness of those within God’s family and to engage readily for the good of those outside of it. By your ‘good works’ it will apparent whether you have truly been transformed by God’s grace and favour. Today, seize all the opportunities presented to you to enrich other people by your doings and gifts so that they can witness who is now running your life. By such, others will be attracted and work for your Lord and the ultimate is an untold reward in heaven. Life will not be a vanity but a great profit to all.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Dr. Billy Graham

No one can outrun death. It will catch up to all of us eventually.



It would appear that David was overflowing with a spirit of kindness at this time, wanting to be good and generous to all. Attention is directed to Hanun king of Ammon who had just come to the throne. It was his desire to have good relations with him and his people and so he sent responsible and respected persons to wish him well – v2. What a magnificent gesture it was and indicates that David was simply warlike in his disposition! At the heart of this man and monarch was the will to be kind and to get on with people.

Unfortunately there were those who gathered around the king who deliberately misrepresented the gesture and urged the king to respond wrongly. He listened to them and performed a disgraceful deed by dishonouring the messengers and embarrassing them profusely by shaving off half their beards and cutting off their garments at their loins. It was an awful thing to do. Instead of peace and good will it turned into war and bloodshed as Ammon suffered at the hands of Israel. It turned out to be a great loss for Him instead of great gain.

It is always important that we learn to interpret things aright in life. We should never attribute wrong motives to others in their kind gestures to us and we must always see that we are properly governed in our deeds. Let us not fall foul of evil in any way but make certain that we safeguard all we do with pure, sincere and loving inspiration so that we can activate others in similar fashion. When there is misjudgment it tends to lead on to greater trouble that is difficult to get out of. Always think deeply and prayerfully before taking critical courses of action.
