DAY BY DAY

Day by Day learn to keep and openness and sensitivity to the LORD. Herein lays the secret of a fulfilled life and service that ultimately meets the approval of God and will be duly rewarded. It is the way your Lord and Saviour live, moved and word during His time on earth. His example is to act as the inspiring force and factor and will ensure your well-being here and finally stand revealed all to note before the judgment seat of Christ. He has quickened you to spiritual life and awareness so that you can live and serve in this fashion. Starting each day and working through as He did is certain to bring the blessing of heaven upon you in all you do and associate with.

WISE COUNSEL

As you are properly taught by the wisdom of wise from the sacred Scriptures you are shown that it will safeguard from an immoral life, from mixing with the opposite sex for wrong conduct – Proverbs 2: 15-22. Of course, there is nothing wrong with having sex as long as it in conformity with what God has designed. Thinking you know better than your Creator on the issue is sure to be detrimental and destruction. Wise people learn to live in the limits that God has set and in so doing reap the advantages. He is the One who oversees and justifiably rewards those who conform to His standard of belief and behaviour. Do not be seduced in any way but live in harmony with heaven and you will enjoy the consequences.

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

THERE IS A JUDGMENT DAY

The Bible teaches that life is a very serious and solemn business as far as God is concerned. Yes, God desires that man should be happy and happy in the way he lives. It is imperative to live a righteous and good life so that when there is the ultimate accountability before Him there will be no regret. We are notified in Hebrews 9:27 ‘that it is appointed unto man once to die, but after death the judgment.’ Death will not be feared if you are conscious of having lived the life God has ordained for you. By and through Jesus Christ you can be totally forgiven of your sins and evil doings, receive a new nature through Him that will enable you to live the kind of life that will meet God’s approval. The judgment day will not be a cause of alarm because your state has been settled now. Make certain that today that you are reconciled to God’s ways and procedures.

CURIOUS

A teacher was finishing up a lesson on the joys of discovery and the importance of curiosity. “Where would we be today,” she asked, “if no one had ever been curious?”

One child quietly spoke up from the back of the room. “Still in the Garden of Eden?”

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day know and live in the spiritual consciousness that you have a gracious role to fulfil within each moment and hour. Let not the time slip by where you fail to grasp the importance of your being by the Godhead. The Father Son and Holy Spirit desire to live in holy connection and to play their roles in causing all to be constructive and productive. They are ever-present to inspire incentive and enable you to live and launch out into doing things that have lasting worth. Do not be squeezed into a mould created by the evil one, Satan, who ever seeks to negate noble aspirations and a life of tremendous usefulness for God. Be smart and diligent and so at this point in your affairs you really get going and moving in the plans of heaven for your stay here on earth.

WISE COUNSEL

Listening to sound, godly counsel has worth-while spin –offs. In particular: ‘To deliver you from the way of evil and evil men, from men who speak perverse things and are liars. Men who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness . . . .’ – Proverbs 2; 12-15. There is certainly a personal conflict to be faced and won. There is the alien and wicked presence and forces of evil that beset and seek to trap and reduce your life to worthlessness and wretchedness. Do not be ensnared by the allurements of wickedness no matter how dressed up and attractive. Keep out of association with people that are crooked and bent for they, if allowed, trap and bring your ruination. Take the opposite and get associated with the righteous and righteousness and there will be nothing that will cause shame and harm.

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

THE GREAT BREAKTHROUGH

Realise this dear friend, in this life God seeks, in a quiet but deliberate fashion, to make a breakthrough into your life. He would provoke you to think deeply of your existence, why you are here, what you should you be doing whilst here and the query where are you going to at the end of life’s journey. It is time to give thought to such and make the right choices. Your temporary stay in life is not without purpose. It is a run in to something infinitely greater and lasting when understood. Through Jesus Christ becoming your Saviour and LORD, He will save you from your sins, make known how to invest your life now on earth, give prospect of sharing heaven in a glorious future. The breakthrough can take place today as you invite His to share His salvation, goodness and presence with you. Take Him up on what He offers!

DEFINITION

“Give me a sentence about a public servant,” said a teacher.

The small boy wrote: “The fireman came down the ladder pregnant.”

The teacher took the lad aside to correct him: “Don’t you know what pregnant means?” she asked.

“Sure,” said the young boy confidently. “It means carrying a child.”

THOUGHT TO PONDER
Isn’t the best way to save face to keep the lower part shut?

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day the LORD works for your good and graduation. He not only ordained the next hours for you but ensures He will be alongside every moment to strengthen and supply all that is required for a fruitful day. Attack the next hours with faith, good-will and zest and it could turn out to be a day of note in your earthly pilgrimage. As He safely and surely conducted Moses and Israel through their journey, the same is to be experienced by you. The universal LORD loves to be with and owns those that desire to be identified with Him. In an unassuming manner He will reveal Himself to them and act on their behalf when required. Never forget that it is the intention of your heavenly Father to bring you to His habitation and to give you a glorious future there with Him.

WISE COUNSEL

The assurance is given that as you pursue that which is just, true and right in everything and at all times something choice is promised: ‘you will understand every good path’ – Proverbs 2: 9. There will be neither complexity nor perplexity. Composure will be known where you will sense which road to take at all times. You will not have to rack your brains and live restive over where you find yourself. All will be plain and easy to understand and grasp. The wise and most rewarding choices will be made and the spins off will be most surprising and enjoyable. Others will observe how well you are, how you have graduated into a praiseworthy status and that you are a real example and positive example for good. You wills et up the track for others to pursue!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU
TAKE TIME TO THINK AND ACT CLEARLY

On a planet that is ever on the rush and pushes relentlessly, it is easy to be part of the set up. Taking time out quietly to think and act clearly does not come too readily. Life appears to be geared into the present earthly system of making as much as you can and indulging into that which gives carnal pleasure. Taking time out to think as why you are here and how all is to end up is shoved aside in the pursuit on the now. The Bible says that God has put ‘eternity’ into us. We have to see beyond the present. That is why Christ came to discover God to us and reveal there is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun. Do not be hood-winked by Satan the evil one. Turn to Christ and He will switch you to what you need to know, believe and experience. It is not too late for you to do this! Make your peace with God and settle your eternal destiny!

HUMOUR – A TIME TO LAUGH
MARRIAGE

The judge addressing the couple standing before him said, ‘Why didn’t you settle the dispute out of court?’ ‘Sure that is what we were doing, my lord, until the police came and interfered.’

An elderly man, married for almost forty-five years, returned home one afternoon to find his wife packing. ‘What are you doing? He asked. ‘All these years of fighting arguing, bickering, I’m leaving.’ The husband stood there for a moment bewildered, watching her struggle through the door with her packed suitcase. He then ran into the bedroom and snatched up another suitcase. ‘Wait a minute’, he cried. ‘I can’t stand it anymore. I’m coming with you.’

10/06/18

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day learn to re-call the past benefits and blessings the LORD has been pleased to load your life with. Do not be forgetful or remiss with regard to such. The psalmist in his famous and memorable psalm emphasises this point – Psalm 103:2 – ‘forget not ALL His benefits.’ As you engage in this exercise it will bring a sense of immense appreciation of the LORD’S goodness and promote happy worship of and thanksgiving to Him. Further, it will generate faith and expectancy for more to flow on a regular daily basis. You will recognise more and more that God’s favour is on you to do you good, to make your living and stay on earth a joyful existence. There will also be the capacity to bless others so that they will be enriched by favour on you. ‘Count your many blessings, see what God has done!’

WISE COUNSEL

When Divine Wisdom is in control there is sure to be a blessed and rewarding outcome. There is the discovery and sense that they are overseen by the LORD and wonderfully protected – ‘He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and integrity . . . . He preserves the way of the saints’ – Proverbs 2: 7, 8. An incredible sense of well-being and security is known by those who live under her covering. It is sensed that ‘all things do work together for good’, both the good and seeming bad things. They are faced with a consciousness that the LORD uses both to the maximum benefit. Besides possessing the peaceful assurance of being and doing what is best, there will be an inward conviction that the LORD will ultimately make known His appreciation, judgment and reward. The LORD is with His saints amidst their trials and makes them serve their ultimate advantage.

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

FEAR

Yes, fear is a dreadful factor that does present itself and makes its influence and dominance known on many fronts. It affects so many and many do not know how to handle the same. There is the fear of life and death that has to be attended to. Christ came to help and inspire with regard to both. Allow Him into your life and affairs and in your present confrontation with life will know His presence and input, aiding you to cope with each day. He not only gives forgiveness of sins but also bestows immediate fellowship and the assistance in dealing with each day profitably. But then there is the fear of dying and what does the future hold beyond the grave hold? If Christ is your Lord and Saviour, now, then this taken care of. Heaven awaits those who belong to Him so the need to make sure He now lives in you. Instead of living in fear you can live in faith. As the hymn write wrote: ‘We expect a bright tomorrow, All, all is well.’

HUMOUR – A TIME TO LAUGH

‘if you really look like your passport photograph, then you certainly need a holiday.’

‘A Mr Wright tells of staying in a small-town hotel. The first morning he made the mistake of ordering morning tea. Shortly before seven, a girl threw open the door. ‘Sugar in your tea?’, she shouted. ‘No thank you’, he replied. Before she banged the door shut, she said, ‘’Don’t stir it then.’

One mother was telling another about their hotel problems when they were on holiday. ‘The food was poison – and such small portions.’

9/06/18

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day, Life, work and ministry must not be allowed to reach stalemate, where you are static and dead and what you do is of the same kind. Although you may have been in the same situation for years, meeting the same people, occupied in seeming menial duties, not particularly noticed by others with your presence and what you do. Never allow such to dictate your living. As you live in the freshness of God with daily devotions with Him and receiving of His Spirit and Word, there will be a quiet freshness about your life and labour. In an unassuming manner you will carry a fragrance that will perfume the day that will deal with the stagnation. There will be a divine air and atmosphere that will be dispensed from that will penetrate areas and people and do enormous good.

WISE COUNSEL

The call of Divine Wisdom to one and all is that if it is to be known and effective, there has to be an urgent and desperate desire and quest for it. It does not come so easily. Hearken to the advice of Proverbs 2: 2,3 Amp. Version– ‘Making your ear attentive to skilful and godly Wisdom and inclining and directing your heart and mind to understanding (applying all your powers to the quest for it) ;. . .’ She is to be sought ‘as for silver or hidden treasures’ –vv3, 4. There is to be no half–heartedness but a genuine, consistent reaching out to be rightly informed and instructed so that you will always make the right choices and movements. If you do not want to finish on the scrap heap or rubbish dump, it is imperative you give yourself to truly knowing and doing. Never forget you are on a real worth-while mission in life!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

PROSPECTS COULD NOT BE BETTER

You need to be aware of the truth and the fact that Jesus Christ came into the world to give you the prospects that no one else could give. He left everything, heaven above with all its perfection possession and popularity to give you everything that is worthwhile and eternal. His vicarious sufferings on the Cross were in order to deal with the negative situation that sin causes. His death meant your sins could be forgiven and that you could enter a new future provided by Him as you allow Him residency and presidency in an over your life. He offers the best in this life on earth, now, and when it is concluded is prepared to open heaven to you with all of its prospects and gains. Do not dismiss Him or the offers in Him because you will be the loser! Today, seal your commitment to Him!

A CHURCH FUNNY

A bishop was astonished to hear little Mary say that a person must be brave these days to go to church. ‘Why do you say that?’ asked the bishop. ‘Well I heard my uncle tell my aunt last Sunday afternoon that there was a canon in the pulpit, that the choir murdered the anthem, and that the organist drowned the choir.’

8/06/18

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day there is the choice discovery that there is still much to perform in order that we make the grade and accomplish what the LORD has ordained. Being goaded and guided by heaven makes a spiritual and substantial difference. Before Paul was converted he thought he was engaged in doing the will of Jehovah. On the Damascus Road his first words were: ‘Lord, what will you have me do?’ – Acts 9:6. The book of Acts, with a record of his missionary work, reveals He was a man with a divine mission, to take the Gospel of Christ as directed from heaven to as many as he could.. How well he stuck to this task until his home-call! His example has served as an inspiration to countless Christian workers being also goaded and guided from above. Seize your golden opportunity now, go down the same track and see what the LORD will do through you!

WISE COUNSEL

Divine Wisdom offers this great assurance. ‘Whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell securely and in confident trust shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil’ – Proverbs 1:33 Amp.Version. You could not be better positioned by Wisdom as you hear and heed her voice of instruction. What she has in mind and heart is in obtaining a sure state and place for you to be in so that nothing and nobody alarms in any degree. Whilst others around are all up tight and perpetually worried and anxious, you have a unique equanimity and composure that speaks volumes. No, you are not at the mercy of men or evil circumstances, your trust is in the knowledge that the LORD oversees and will direct you in and through all issues whatever they be. He who is unmoved from eternity in His sovereign will imparts His nature and attitude and you will stand awed and amazed at the handling of your life and work through Him!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

BE A SEEKER

The LORD never imposes himself or anything on any person although He has the right to do so. Lovingly and in a gracious manner He comes across your pathway seeking to engender in you a mind and heart to seek Him. The problem with people is they don’t appreciate this. Christ does seek to awaken folks to seek. He said in His day: ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven’ – Matthew 6:33. Many people chase after earthly factors thinking they are the be and end all of life! Christ came to reveal His heavenly kingdom of which He is King and shows there are spiritual and eternal virtues that excel all that is of an earthly order to be possessed. You need to be birthed in His Kingdom and enjoy His Kingship and rule now and be ready for something even bigger when He returns to earth. Let Him into your life now, today!

MONEY FUNNY

A One day, an employee received an unusually large pay check. She decided not to say anything about it.

The following week, her check was for less that the normal amount, and she confronted her boss.

‘How come,’ the supervisor inquired, ‘you didn’t say anything when you were overpaid’

Unperturbed, the employee replied, ‘Well, I can overlook one mistake but not two in a row!’

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day one wonders what it will bring forth. One may start in a positive state of mind and heart but lots of negative things take place that battle against this good attitude and seek ascendancy. It is a conflict that has to be won and the hope that the positive wins through. One has to be rightly armed so that success occurs. Throughout it is imperative that there is a drawing on the resources from on high. The best help comes from Him who has all the answers and is willing to come and lend His aid. He supplies that extra wisdom, strength grace etc., which is more than adequate with everything that is confronted. After all, He has been running a universe since its inception and He alone knows what else! Make certain He is in the day and on the job with you!

WISE COUNSEL

There is a generous offer made by wisdom to those who desperately need such wise counsel and help. The call is: “How long, O simple ones will you be simple’ – Proverbs 1:22. You do not have to stay ignorant! Help is present! The choice is yours to break free from being ignorant, senseless and stupid and join those who are listening and hearkening to the best of Counsellors, Christ the Fount of Wisdom, and the Word of God. It is state that the call is to ‘Repent’ – v23 and this means a change of mind, heart and disposition. Be humble enough and the assured promise is, ‘I will pour out my spirit on you, I will make known my words known to you’. Yes, you will be placed in the driving seat and have perfect and wise control of life at all times and situations.

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

THE BEST KIND OF LIFE

Jesus Christ, the Author and Dynamic of the Christian Faith and Life, extends the best kind of life too all who would follow Him. Without doubt, the greatest life ever lived is His and the greatest story ever to be told is His. He came to show man how to live at a premium and the best and then made and makes it possible for all men to know and experience the same. His death on the Cross means that man’s sin has been atoned for, the dept paid in full and now all can be forgiven and restored into union and harmony with God. Further, His rising from the dead means He can come and live in and with those who will relate to Him, offering His own dynamic life to live life to the full, how it was meant to be. Do not hesitate a moment longer, but invite and crown Him Saviour and Lord of your life and enter into the best kind of life.

BIRTHDAY FUNNY

A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday.

‘I’d love to be six again,’ she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to the local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, The Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear – everything there was! Wow!

Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered a big Mac along with extra fries and refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie – the latest Start War epic, and hot dogs, popcorn, Pepsi Cola, and M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed.

He leaned over and lovingly asked, ‘Well, dear, what was it like being six again?’

One eye opened, ‘You idiot, I meant my dress size six!’

It is possible to hear and get things wrong!!

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day you have to be wise and put the previous one behind you whether it has been good or bad. Of course, it is forever connected but you have to press on and build in constant freshness. There is so much to be added that it is to advantage you in growth, wisdom, usefulness, achievement, and the list can be added to. See that in every situation make your contribution in a relaxed and unassuming way and you will discover the next hours to be profitable and give you supreme pleasure. Life was given to you by The Almighty to become somebody through Him and to achieve some very choice qualities and gifts etc. May today be full of significance, wonder and attraction!

WISE COUNSEL

There are many voices in the world that call out for attention. They want you to listen to what they have to say and respond to their directives. Absolute care has to be taken that one does not become tuned into the wrong ones that are seemingly becoming but evil is behind their utterances. Such lead to disaster. Our text today gives the right call, it says: ‘Wisdom cries aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the markets. She cries at the head of the noisy intersections (in the chief gathering places); at the entrance of the city gates she speaks’ – Proverbs 1: 20, 21). It is time for you to sort her out and begin to have an ear what she has to utter and teach. Wisdom’s quest is the well-being of all who take the opportunity of switching on to her. Above all, today, get attuned to the best Instructor and Instructions! You will benefit immensely!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

BE NOT DECEIVED

You live in a world that has the powerful fact and force of deception. People are unfortunately deceived on some very crucial matters and need to be alerted to the fact. Our original parents, Adam and Eve were deceived by the greatest deceiver and liar of all. Through his wicked and attractive words and manoeuvrings he lied and so robbed them of Eden’s Garden and especially a close relationship with Creator-God. What a price to pay as a result of deception! But Jesus Christ, the Truth comes to speak and to lead you into all truth so that life becomes rightly based. He reveals that salvation from sin and its power is only through Him and as you allow Him into your life you will be saved from the lying work of Satan. Through the Bible, God’s Word, all the truth is found and the Holy Spirit of Truth will teach you what to believe and do and thus be saved from error. Live in the freedom from all deception so you will live in certainty!

HUMOUR – A TIME TO LAUGH

HONESTY

A man tells how after being retired for a couple of years and completing all the jobs his wife had lined up  for him to do, he decided to enrol for a course at  the local adult education college.

He had been told that pensioners did not have to pay a fee. Handing in the completed form, he announced to the secretary, ‘I’m sixty-seven.’ Then pulling out his wallet, he asked if she wanted to see his birth certificate. ‘No, that’s alright’, she said. ‘Oh, do I look honest?’, he asked her. ‘No’, she replied, ‘you look sixty-seven.’

5/06/18

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day is a constant exercise in learning irrespective of the age you are at. One of the lessons that keep cropping up is that of learning to be patient, being calm and cool when all that is happening is most provocative and seeking to create bad feelings and wrong actions. Charles Swindoll wrote: ‘The best test of my Christian growth occurs in the mainstream of life, not in the quietness of my study. Anybody can walk in victory when surrounded by books, silence, and the warm waves of sunshine splashing through the window. But those late take offs, those grocery lines, traffic jams, busy restaurants etc. That’s where faith is flushed out.’ It is not good for spiritual or natural health to blow off unnecessary steam and strength when things occur to test your Christian life and experience. Learn to rest and repose in Christ at such times!

WISE COUNSEL

KEEP OUT OF EVIL COMPANY

Many a young and even older person have gone off the rails and finished up in a terrible state in more ways than one because they became joined the wrong company. It can occur at any point in life. The wise injunction of Proverbs 1: 10 ‘My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.’ The next verses vv11-19 gives the wicked procedures that they adopt and want you to be linked in with them. Regrettably people in each generation have gone this way and finished up wrecks and on the scrap heap. Certainly they do not gain the LORD’S approval or blessing. So observe the directive, steer clear of people who are motivated with evil because they are infectious and ruin those who join them. Be selective, choose good and the godly and you will find it yields the greatest and lasting benefits!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

REGENERATION

The word simply means to be born anew, to have and know a re-birth. It has to be understood and grasped that the real reason why Jesus Christ came into the world was that mankind should have such an experience. You can reead about it in John’s Gospel chapter three in the Bible. A very good, religious man came to inquire of Him one night and Christ challenged him to be born again. He thought of it in natural terms; Jesus Christ intimated that was a spiritual thing. Only Christ can bring this about. Through His death and resurrection this can be a possibility and reality. He died on the Cross to deal with your sins that caused death, He paying the price by personally being the sacrifice for sin. But He rose again to start a new race. When people believe and receive Christ as the Living LORD into life He begets a new nature so that the person becomes a new creature with the divine nature. A Christian is one that has been born again and has Christ on board life. Be sure that you have been regenerated by Him!

TYPEWRITER

They had been up the attic together doing some cleaning. The kids uncovered an old manual typewriter and asked their mother, ‘Hey Mum, what’s this?

‘Oh, . . that’s an old typewriter,’ she answered, thinking that would satisfy their curiosity.

‘Well, what does it do?’ they asked.’

‘I’ll show you,’ she said and returned with a piece of blank paper. She rolled the paper into the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letter of print on the page.

‘WOW!’ they exclaimed, ‘that’s really cool . . . but how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?

‘Ther is no plug,’ she answered. ‘It does not need a plug.’

‘Then where do you put the batteries?’ They persisted.

‘It does not need batteries either,’ she continued.

‘Wow! This is so cool!’ they exclaimed. ‘Someone should have invented this a long time ago!’

DAY BY DAY

Day by Day and each moment as is devoted to the LORD will bring eternal returns worth knowing and possession. You cannot afford to neglect tour salvation or your opportunity of serving Him in great commitment. In the ultimate, when He reviews both your life and work, He desires to be pleased over all that you have done for and through Him. This should be inward vision and passion that moment will cause you be thrilled because as He reviews all He will sense no disappointment only gladness. Be assured of this the reward and honour bestowed will exceed all and give you eternal gratification. The angels, saints and even the Godhead will join in the celebration of what has been wrought by you for God’s glory. Keep your eyes on the great climax!

WISE COUNSEL

Parental instruction and care is not to be despised or neglected. Hearken to scriptural emphasis: ‘My son, hear the instruction of your father; reject not nor forsake the teaching of your mother’ – Proverbs 1:8. Through the course of their own lives your dad and mum have had to meet and cope with lots of issues. They have been good in their judgments and decisions and learned from their mistakes and so are in a good position to pass on valuable information that will enable you to make the grade and do well. After all, they love you more than others and so it with pure motivation they are zealous and jealous for you. As you honour them you will be honoured by the LORD for He confirms their sound guidance. Their example will in course of time make you hopefully a good parent!

A MESSAGE FOR YOU

PURE JOY

If you are looking for real and pure joy of a lasting quality and quantity, there is only one true source – God! The psalmist said: ‘God is my exceeding joy’ – Psalm 43:4. The joys people pursue have a measure of delight and thrill about them but they are short-lived. Through Jesus Christ God offers the kind of joys that have se worth about them. For instance: the immense joy of forgiveness, when you know that your huge debt of sin has been cancelled out because it was effectually dealt with Christ on the Cross. The psalmist speaks of ‘fullness of joy found in God’s presence – Psalm 16:11. As you learn to live in the immediate presence of the LORD there comes a unique pleasure that is truly felt. Then there is joy of answered prayer when God steps into your affairs and does something special and so on. Make certain that your life knows something of the joy God gives!

BRAIN DRAIN

A Lewis farmer and his wife had three distinguished sons. One was a surgeon, one was a professor and the other an eminent lawyer. When a neighbour noticed them all working on their father’s farm, he inquired, ‘Is this the brain drain?’

Why pay money to have your family tree traced. Go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
