"So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Romans 10:17 ESV

Dear friends and family…,
Let's repent from all of our sin,
large and small that’s hidden within.
Christ died for us, our souls to win;
Jew and Gentile, whoever kin.
Trust and obey, turn frown to grin;
hear ‘word of Christ’, let joys begin. Hallelujah!

"And my God will supply every need of yours
according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19 ESV

Dear friends and family…,
Rejoice that God supplies our needs;
our earnest prayers he kindly heeds.
Even the ravens our God leads;
to help Elijah with bread crumb feeds.
When falsely blamed of evil deeds,
feast on the Bread of Life's good seeds. Hallelujah!

"Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own.
But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:13-14 ESV

Dear friends and family…,
Worldly treasures and sports trophies,
no more will we glory in these. 
Heart, soul and mind fully agrees,
we look beyond “birds and the bees”.
Our 'goal' and 'purpose' is God please;
as our Christ did, pray on our knees. Hallelujah!

"Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”
Hebrews 12:14 ESV

Dear friends and family…,
Gideon is a good showpiece;
he prayed that his doubts would decrease.
God honoured the sign of his fleece;
enemies were 'stumped in their crease'.
The Cross is the sign of God's peace;
when sin comes let God's grace increase. Hallelujah!

Cloud & Fire - Intro

Daily devotionals by Keith Truscott

- Background & Introduction -

And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.
Exodus 13:21 (ESV)

 

Background to ‘Cloud and Fire’

Short biography: I was born in Darwin, Northern Territory of Australia in 1950. My first eight years was in an Aboriginal mission called Retta Dixon Home. Before I was 12 years of age I had had three changes to my surname through fostering and adoption near Sydney, but I am happy with my present last name of Keith Charles Truscott. My traditional Aboriginal ties are with the Antakarinyin people of Northern South Australia. My mother was “stolen” from her language and country as a child. I had to go back and re-learn my language. Whilst living in New South Wales I had variety of jobs from brickies’ labourer, farm-labourer, to newspaper clerk. When I moved to Western Australia in 1975, I have been mainly a university academic and pastor of an Indigenous church in Perth, Western Australia. My dream is to see the Indigenous church learn, grow and mature in the Lordship of Christ in their lives. I am married to Stephanie and have three children, fifteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. In 2018 I would have been an Indigenous Pastor in Perth for the last 25 years.

Hallelujah!
