I enjoy your talk about the family unit loosing their closeness due to the gifts of the world. It is so true. I am one that grew up in the late 40’s and 50’s and I see the disfunction in todays families. It is so difficult for children to realise what we are talking about.
I appreciate your podcasts Mr Dymet and thank you for the encouragement and food that it brings to my soul. Many times when I am in a situation and I read or listen to one of your podcasts it aligns itself with what is taking place in my life at the time. Nothing is coincidental, God is in control. Thank you for this blessed ministry as I seek to support it in any way I can. God bless.
Hi Berni, Vivienne from Belfast. I love the way you teach us the GOSPEL. Your programmes are so inspiring and a real treat to watch and listen. Thankyou JESUS …
I really love your teaching. very encouraging! I have been struggling of my weight since I was a child. God bless you! thanx!
Thanks so very much for your ministry to me and to all of us.
It’s of great help, support and encouragement.
The teachings are wonderful. God greatly bless you and your family and ministry!
Thanks for a great message yet again you certainly have a way with simplifying God’s precious Word in a way that folk like me can understand thanks again. What I would like to know is have you done a session on “Fearing the Lord” and what does that exactly mean. Just putting it out there. Cheers,Rob Messmer
Thankyou so much for today’s devotional. I love these verses. This is a concern for me. I often wonder , do I have enough longing and passion for Jesus. Yes I long for Him. But is it enough. All I can do is keep plugging in to Jesus. Take Him with me everywhere I go. This morning’s devotional has helped fan the flame . Thankyou.
LOVE ❤️ LOVE YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON FAMILIAR PASSAGES. I CAN’T START MY DAY WITHOUT READING CHRISTIANITY WORKS. YOUR POSITIVE TAKE ON OUR CURRENT SITUATION IN THIS WORLD WITH GOD’S BIBLICAL SOLUTIONS MAKES ME REALIZE THAT I CAN MAKE IT ANOTHER DAY WITH CHRIST! TKU 🥰
Thank you once again for your insight on the meaning of LOVE. I found it interesting that, yes we all want to be loved but it is the returning the love back, the unconditional love I feel is where a lot of us are having the problem. We may manage to love and encourage others but when we do not get love or respect back that is when we get hurt and feel bad about ourselves and question what has gone wrong. The unconditional love is to love others and do not expect anything back. If you do receive love or respect that is a blessing. This is where it is hard for me. I really love certain people and know that I need to love,encourage and make people feel they are important in this world but when you have been hurt it is hard to keep on encouraging them to be the best they can be,when they clearly do not want the best for me. I keep thinking about how Jesus must have felt when his close friends the disciples did not want to know him even denied ever knowing him. Jesus would of been hurt but he still loved them, he still managed to take the focus off himself. To love unconditionally is not to expect anything in return. This is a hard lesson for all of us. We live in a self centered world all about what is good for me, not thinking what is good for the other person. Thank you again for this lesson on love. It as helped me tremendously!!
I pray for this every day, for more people turning to God. thank you for your daily word .
Thank you for reminding us again of our diversity, sometimes we forget with all the cares of this world,
Thought provoking and instructive. I recognised myself in all. Now I need to discover which one is my major.
Thank you for the help.
I agree fully. Thank you.
Encouraging and uplifting… a breath of fresh air. Was once blind but now can see!
Hi, I’m Cindy. I live in a small town in North Western PA.
I’m a new listener and reader of your podcasts.
I totally enjoyed your video on how to deal with ignorant people.
This has come at a most appropriate time in my life.
I’ve just recently started a new job as a (TSS) Therapeutic Staff Support (3 mos.).
While at work last week giving my supervision report to the support coordinator, (which is in an open office area, where other staff can hear), I kept witnessing two girls swapping grins.
Being that I’m still trying to get adjusted to the position and staff, I’m still uncomfortable and lacking self confidence.
I assumed the girls were grinning back and forth to one another due to what and how I was presenting my words.
This caused me to become quite agitated and sad.
When I called the support coordinator later in the day, after this event had worked on my mental well-being for awhile, and mentioned this to her, she simply said,”oh they were just grinning due to something earlier between the two.”
I didn’t quite accept that concept because of how the girls facial expressions and body language appeared as I was giving my report.
Instead of being bitter around them now, I’m being pleasant and complimenting .
PS. Love your accent
Wonderful exegesis! I am a prayer warrior, watchman and prophetic intercessor so I am not as active as an ambassador. Really spoke to me about avoiding hypocrisy though!
Absolutely love fresh.Its so relevant and so real. Bernie talks like we are thinking! And then puts God’s perspective on it. I love that.Thankyou.
Loved it, thank you for always uplifting me. God bless you and keep you and your family safe.
I found today’s message of God as being a hearing to my ears and an eye opener to my eyes .
I can now identify a good fruit from a bad fruit, by the work that is produced.
It is great for me to have something to listen to every morning when I get up, and I hope and pray it will help me with a lot of stress in my life.
HI Berni. Wow what a challenging message and lesson. But I totally agree with you. Unless we focus on Jesus, the Bible and what God is doing, then and now we can find ourselves moving away from the One we are claiming to serve. Bless you and your ministry.
Thank you. Through the ministry of Christianityworks, a big difference has occurred in my life. The Victory that we have in Jesus, that you always talk about has given me great hope in life. I’m now leading a much more positive life with great expectations for the future. May the Lord remember your works.
I have really learnt and identified with this lesson. Discipline really makes us but its accepting the discipline that we struggle with. thank you.
Since I came across your preaching on our Radio Christian Voice Zambia, the emails I get of the diary devotional have made me have a new perspective on life as a Christian, am glad I came across your preaching it is making an impact on my life.
I think that this is such a blessing to those who truly love the Lord and who want to grow in the Lord. Keep up the great work!
God Bless 😇
My spirit is lifted! I’m in hospital and have had several procedures last few days. I know God is with me constantly carrying me through each test! Thank you for your daily messages. Praise God!
God’s Word is always confirmation. After I had just uttered the words ‘I’ve got so much on my plate, I’m so tired I don’t know what I am going to do’ I opened up my email and the first thing that popped up – The Media Lounge is now open to you (and free)! I browsed through and now I am going to start with the topics that concern me most. Thank you so much for the email, exactly what I needed.
Thank you, Bro. Berni D.
Your daily devotionals truly is a great blessing. More blessings be poured out to Christianityworks.com from our God Almighty.
Thank you for the daily words you choose to share. I find encouragement, lessons, and humbling moments as I read your devotions.
Thank you Berni, God used your ministry powerfully in my life today, I put my sure hope in God alone as I step forward to forgive and love and do the simple things to bring my family together. Praise be to God for what He has already done and what He is doing and what He will do. God continue to bless you mightily! In God’s love, In Jesus’ name and by the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
Thanks so much, encouraging and uplifting. Receive His Word with heart felt thanks. God bless you and your family and may He continue to prosper you in His Word of Grace and truth.
Thankyou . I’m a single mum age nearly 48 my son is 9. At times it gets fraught. I have no human model as was brought up in care and was like a parcel with no address until the destructive family aged 10 I ended with. God is my number 1 and I know parenting is a gift and God allowed me my son as a miracle many ways over. God gave me my son. I do often doubt my ability, feel guilty as I shouldn’t have said this … or done that…. but God is helping me. Sadly I over think which is my snare. I know the importance of a good childhood that now a days more than ever must be Bible based and brought alive to my son by his own faith and own relationship with God. I have health issues that at times stop me being as tolerant as I should be. I enjoy listenning to your ministry on UCB ireland as it’s presented in a real way. Being a parent is a huge responsibility . Thankyou for aĺl the input . Sharon
Dear Berni, first of all, I am not in the habit of commenting on the many teachings that I have the privilege of reading or listening to videos. However I am taking this time to tell you how very much I appreciate your teachings. They’re very concise and thought provoking. Not to mention I love your accent which really keeps me interested. I am so very grateful for all your ministry is doing to reach this fallen world we are living in.
I pray our LORD and KING will continue to bless and provide for all your needs. God bless you my dear brother in Christ.
Dear Berni, the message is challenging. I am struggling to keep my faith in HIM amidst the problems. I am comforted to keep trusting HIM alone. Thank YOU.
I like the way it is written out, it encourages me to know that surely that God is in control of my life and that the direction that is set especially for my christian walk and my faith, to continue on and press forward and that he is in control of our life and direction good or bad happy or sad, Thank U for the encouragement
I really appreciated the series and have found it to be life-changing. Thank you for publishing and making this information available to so many. I live on a tiny island in the Pacific where resources are extremely limited but thanks to your ministry I see Romans 12 in a new perspective – thank you again!
Praise God. This was my experience many years ago. He removed my shame and my sin as far as the east is from the west. All glory to my God in Jesus Christ.
Christianityworks staff and Berni, don’t know how they do it but are still getting better and better every day … The messages from the last two weeks and the week ahead are just perfect for folks in the USA.
I am Jasmin from Manila and I listen to your program over 98.7 every morning on my way to work. Thank you Berni for this message. I became a Christian two years ago and I come from a family of very independent and strong willed women where control and anger are ways for us to get people’s attention or cooperation and to get things done. This is very timely for me because I struggle when Anger is resorted to by family members. It breaks my heart when anger is released instead of just peacefully dealing with a situation or trusting Jesus. With your message I am more encouraged to talk to them about how to deal with Anger. You see, this is the norm in my family. I thought nothing of it because it was the environment I grew up in. Sadly, I was quick to anger too. But when I received Christ into my life two years ago and learning to live His ways I was humbled and brought down to my knees by the fact that to walk with Anger or choosing Anger to remedy things and situations is actually a disastrous walk. I found out I was misguided, unforgiving, impatient, controlling and untrusting of Jesus Christ. I didn’t know any better. Jesus showed this awful trait of mine and lovingly guided me to cure it, to seek Him instead of resorting to anger and to allow things to unfold because I have full trust in the Lord when it comes to my life and circumstances He brings me into. It is Jesus who is in control not I or my feelings. Now instead of resorting to anger, I step back, breathe in and out and pray. I immediately entrust the situation to the Lord and He tells me what to do. Though I am still a work in progress, there is peace in not walking in Anger and I love this inner peace. I have also resorted to forgiveness and love instead of keeping anger from past experiences. You are right. It is the enemy’s way of robbing us of our joy and this is not the life that God intended for you and me. I praise God for you and your work Berni. May God Bless you, your family and workforce. May you continue to share God’s word, grace and love. Thank you very much
This is so wonderful. I was alternating between being frozen with fear and running around like a headless chicken. The crux of the message I got from this is wait on the Lord with faith. I have my final exams coming up in 10 days. I have been facing so many challenges in the past week, that I have not been able to sit and study. This devotional really encouraged me. Please remember in prayers, my exams. Thank you. God bless you all. Keep up the good ministry.
I thank you and I love you. You, Berni, inspire me and I am in awe of how you can accomplish so much each and every day. Sincerely, Veronica Southby
Thanks again for a great message. Some time ago I felt that boiling feeling after a comment that my ex wife made, to which I spun on my heels, walked in the opposite direction and silently prayed “God please help me I can’t do this on my own” Two things happened 1 that blood boiling feeling resided as quick as it came up 2 after some silence this wisdom came with all calmness from my mouth. Unfortunately I didn’t practise this enough with my wife but now armed with more knowledge thanks to your message I am gaining ground once more to raise up three beautiful granddaughters,
Keep up the great work Bernie God is doing a great work through you and your team.
I’ve been listening for more than 10 years. Bernie and his guests are as fresh and interesting as much now as when I first tuned in and heard his dynamic voice and messages.
Many Many thanks for the significant growth that’s been possible since then. Your programs have been one part of many positive influences and “mysterious ways’ events that have helped me help many others in my life…
I love “Pruned and disciplined” so true….and spot on…
Happy New Year and much success ahead…!
Mark E. Caufield
Berni it is so good to find Gods words of love and wisdom each day.
You write with so much love and understanding.
We are indeed blessed with your messages to us and such a great way to start our day.
Wow that message is so powerful in moments like this when I feel giving up. Am a better person now and all glory be to Jesus.Thank you ‘Christianityworks team’ for putting this piece here.You have touched a life. How can I share this with my friends please? Onesmus
Your daily devotions are always so helpful and useful for my life. and I love reading them on line, and also listening to you on Radio Rhema when I am out in my car.
I suffer from depression which has got worse over the years, and especially since my son took his life 15 years ago, but I am so pleased that I have a faith, can pray and know that the Lord is there for me, because if I didn’t I am sure I wouldn’t be here.
This year I want to try and spend more time reading the Bible and good up lifting Christian literature, and making God be more effective in my life.
Thank you for your great words of wisdom and the topics that you share.
God Bless you and your family.
I am so glad I found this site. It is a wonderful addition to my morning time of prayer and meditation, which i call my appointment with God and my time to practice being in His Presence. I just love the last line that tells me ” That this is God’s word, fresh for me today”. I feel like it was a message just for me. I look forward to reading and meditating on the Bible verse daily. Thank you, Peace and Blessings to all.
We look forward every morning to reading Fresh together. It is amazing. We are so disappointed on the odd occasion it doesn’t come through. Bernie is refreshingly honest. His down to earth Aussie humour is a pleasant change. Many thanks.
It almost seems like these words were written for me today.
Thank you and thanks to God.
Dear Berni, how I love to read everything you write. It is easy to understand, and really hits home! Keep up the good work! Your friend in Jesus Jo!👍🏼
When we pray we are communicating with God. He’s hears all our prayers. God said in his words he will never leave us or forsake us. God is with us no matter where we go. Or how far we go He will always be there for us. So I’m not worried about my children God is with them always. God is with me also.
SERIES: THE LONG ROAD HOME episode 3 is just what I needed to hear.
I have been struggling since ending an affair months ago and this lesson encapsulates so much of my heart, mind and soul’s battles in the time leading up to the affair, during and now after.
I do love the man but it was a way leading to death.
I want to choose life- namely being back with my husband.
I love learning about the Holy Spirit .We have to retain the Holy Spirit to have a connection with Jesus Christ and God. Thank-you for sharing.
I love your devotionals and the narrator’s gentleness of voice and truthful optimism it is both encouraging and hope bringing.
Thank you. 🙂
I have been receiving encouragement from the messages. God bless you.
Ernest O Adjei
I am sooo very grateful for the truth being taught through Berni’s obedience to the Spirit of God. The encouragement I am receiving through this ministry is supporting me to stay on the narrow path as I walk through the very painful season of a broken heart and instead of being pulled apart by my emotions,I am being built up by “The Truth”!…..Berni, your personal testimonies are such an encouragement to me to keep going, to refocus and to respond to the love of our Father. Thank you for all the years of truth that have nourished my soul and continue to, from this day forward.
Hi Angie, thank you very much for writing and glad the message was timely….we thank God.
Always a good idea to focus on Jesus rather than satan even though we are not ignorant of his cunning moves and attacks.
We will definitely be praying for you….in the meantime please check your email for a booklet that I believe will bless you.
I think it is a blessing to me that the words of God wake me up and lead me to reading it regularly or every day.
Thank you Sir for your help and for providing this opportunity.
God Bless You.
I just want to thank you for your Daily Fresh Devotions. Quite often I feel as though you are writing it just for me…. I’ve been through a rough time and have now quit my teaching job, that I loved, because of some issues (I don’t want to drag them up in my head again) and so I’m now searching for work in a little country town – not an easy task. I keep telling myself that something will happen in God’s time not mine….But your devotions have been helping me so much this year and I just wanted to say THANK YOU.
Thank you and God bless you for your timely and needed biblical advice. God knows what we need at all times doesn’t He. I am in conflict with my 18 year old grand daughter at the moment and I sure needed today’s message on the Mouth tells all. I so need the Lord’s help and guidance in dealing with my grand daughter. God bless you Berni.
Thank you for the pod casts. Always very helpful, to the point and in nice digestible chunks. Any chance of back copies of ebooks. Was trying to download ‘your best is yet to come’ and ‘stress busters’ as found both particularly helpful.
What a wonderful message Berni, so true that our God always works in a fresh and new way all the time. I pray that I look forward to the celebration of my Savior through eyes not clouded with my own perspective or circumstance but to be excited to how God will move and reveal Himself to me afresh, to draw me closer to Him and to bring growth and a heart that desires a closer relationship with my heavenly Father.
Thank you so much for the timely message, just what I need right now 🙏
Thank you for the powerful message, God almighty will continue to bless you and strengthen you more and more in Jesus name amen, more grace sir
… your point regarding worshipping in other non verbal ways is so Freeing…
Thank you so much for this word, perfect timing,It brings me closer to My Father.
This is awesome for me today because number 8 is significant for new beginnings,
Only Gods knows!
His grace is sufficient for me His power is made perfect in weakness!!
His strength and His power and glory!!
More of Him and less of me!
That means for me to stay focused on Him Only!!!!
Hi Berni, My husband and I have been battling a personal battle for the last five years. My husband is such a kind and caring man he helped a friend by selling him some land less than it was worth with a hand shake deal that he would sell back when he finished farming. Two and half years ago, the property was put on the market without informing us way more than we sold it to him. After a lot of patience and praying and trying to talk to him, we decided to take him to court. There has been of a lot of heartache and financial struggle. God’s word through Christianityworks has eased our hearts I cannot thank you enough. We just keep praying God’s will be done. At the end of the day, our faith has been guiding us on this trial. Next month, God willing, we go to court could please pray for us? Thanks be to God xx
Thank you for this message.
Your messages as of late have been direct answers to questions I’ve raised with God this week. Confirmation, clarity direction how to get out of this rut.
They have given me strength & purpose to push through my circumstances.
This message in particular gave me a starting point with clarity.
I thank God for you and his message you deliver! please don’t stop!!
Thank you so much for the kick in the pants. I’ve always liked to have things just right. Even as a child I hated anyone touching my things because they were often not put back the way I liked them.
I remember being a divorced Mum, working full time, raising 2 children & would often “lose my cool” because the children hadn’t done their chores right, to my way of thinking. I always encouraged honest family discussions & one day my children sat me down & pointed out to me that they could not do a thing right by me, because whatever they did was wrong as I would always criticize their efforts. My children told me they wanted to live with my Mum because she accepted them as they are. That day I learnt a lesson. We are not all the same. Perfection is not a way of life for all. Accept & appreciate the efforts made by those wired differently than you because they are children of God too. I could have lost my children that day purely by my own attitudes but instead I turned myself around & life at home, whilst not 100% perfect in looks, it was 100% perfect as a family.
My children are grown up & have children of their own now. Are their houses up to my standard of tidyness? Oh heck no. But they have grown into lovely people & their houses are full of love, kindness, honesty & respect. What more could any mother want?
I still am a perfectionist & often drive my now husband insane with it but I’m more relaxed in my expectations now. Although sometimes, just sometimes ………
I loved hearing the message this morning about grief. Chris…I hope that’s the name of the Australian man – spoke.
I have a lost teenager – thankfully no drugs, bad behavior. He’s had a loss of his dreams due to injury in wrestling, and then he lost social connection. Life is JUST coming on him. The booklet for life with Jesus sounded just perfect – leaning on Jesus who loves us all the time, wherever we are. Please send me the ebook. Many thanks. Appreciate prayer for Danny.
Good morning. Today just before I opened this Fresh devotional email I was wondering how am I going to get thru this financial crisis. It’s my car taxes & bills piling up before me as a mountain.Then the word in Matthew 19 come to pass. For me it seems impossible, but thru God it’s possible. I thank God that it is not easy but am hanging in there believing He will take me thru. Amen! God bless keep on courage us thru His word.
Hi I came across your talks on Premier Christian Radio here in the UK and intend using the “Who is Jesus” series as the basis for our talks at our church youth group. Christ Church Rugby UK. Thanks for the inspiration and may God bless your ministry. Simon
Thank you very much. I have been feeling a bit down lately, but your devotionals always lift me up and renew my faith. I really appreciate it. Keep doing God’s work. God Bless.
I agree entirely Berni … thanks for this. Have been challenged myself recently on ‘What price will I pay to see the lost saved, the sick healed.’ I am fasting to know the answer and to see a friend healed who has no medical answer… “He is able to do far more than we can think or imagine…” “Send forth your word to heal…” I cannot now be satisfied with powerless Christianity. Bless you!
Very inspiring. This is the message you print and paste on the wall so when the enemy comes with his deceit you give it this red card … back off. It’s like saying no matter what, ‘I know who I am and I know the truth of my father … I know his promises.” Praise God!!!
Thank you for your message this morning. It was something great to wake up to. My friend who has a smart phone stayed the night and it was a joyful morning to be able to wake up to the wonderful selection of daily devotions on a smartphone when you’ve never had one before nor can afford one.
I throughly enjoy your inspirational “God’s word fresh for you today” article. I read it daily.
The messages are encouraging and strengthening to me and often times I share them with my friends and family.
Thank you very much for blessing and sharing with us the wonderful encounters you have had with our Heavenly Father.
I encourage you to continue being obedient to our Father in sharing the good news, the perfect law of liberty, which will always set us free.
A fantastic gospel message on the Resurrection of Jesus :
You mentioned your sister going to be with Jesus – deepest condolences from me & family. May the Lord bless your ministry mightily. Amen.
I so enjoy watching/listening to Berni’s talks each day either on Shine tv NZ or online. I really appreciate the balanced teaching and the encouraging yet challenging nature of his talks. I’ve been a Christian for 43 years and know the scriptures well, taking the time to do my quiet time in the morning before work, so it’s wonderful to receive God’s Word fresh each day, Spirit-breathed and in bite-sized challenging pieces at the end of each day.
Thank you Berni, your ministry is so appreciated.
Kind regards Di
Hi Berni and your wonderful team.
My day starts with ‘God’s Word Fresh 4 U Today’. Thank you for such a variety of subjects all centered on the Love God has for us and simple ways for me to apply those truths to my life.
I can’t wait to fire up my computer and see what the Lord has led you to bring to my life and yes, it is so fresh. My wife and I along with a wonderful committee of dedicated folk, minister to senior citizens in our community and I have been able to take ideas from your devotions to bring to our group.
May you and your co-workers in Christ be richly blessed.
Thank you so much for this message yes wisdom is what l will ask for l am new hear and l am so happy l have this all to listen to
Praise God for His word that has ministered to those of us who have accepted Him as our personal Saviour. He gives us His favour. He doesn’t remove us from some occurrences, but grants His grace and mercy to overcome and prosper. In my life I have never seen the righteous forsaken or HIS seed begging for bread.
I think Different Perspective and Christianity Works as a whole ministry is excellent. The growth and stability of this ministry over the years is a true testament of God’s blessing and purposes being outworked by faithful servants.
Thank you so much for the inspirational messages. They help me to focus my mind on my development as a follower of Jesus rather than my circumstances. When negative thoughts take hold I can listen to these valuable messages.
Thank you so much. I am struggling with an issue. My daughter in law, hates me. I don’t know how to resolve this.
I apologised. But in her eyes I am no longer family. My son loves her so I stay out of it. But God knows I have not done anything to warrant this. But she feels I have. So I need prayers. Holidays are coming and I love Christmas. Advice please.and prayers.
My biggest desire and hope is that my family will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, that I will be a good witness before them and so many others I come in contact with that they too will find what they are searching for. Your articles each day are so very relevant and encourage me to keep trusting God in every situation (not always straightforward). I’m only saved 2 years and have been so blessed by your devotionals, not too heavy a read and perfect for an afternoon top up to keep me on track throughout the day. May God bless you in your ministry.
I love that last paragraph … Storms are never an excuse to curl up in a ball …
Praise the lord God bless you Berni in Jesus name, I was sliding and doubting in situations facing but thanks be to God, reading this again has lifted me up out of the pit of despair praise be to God for his unfailing love and strength may Jesus continue to bless and Annoint your ministry to set the captives free bless you all in Jesus name amen
Love in Christ Chrissy Fogarty
Hi Berni , The other morning I opened up my tablet and it was on the passage slam dunk just what I needed to read. I have put my faith and hope in Jesus for quite a while now and of course I am in its a slam dunk wow . Evart
Thanks for your encouragement, I lost my job after being in the same job for over 10 years in October last year. I had no idea what was going to happen next like my soul was clinging to the dust but God has revived me and stretched my finances in ways I could not have imagined. Thank you for Fresh and the word.
I just love your daily message that I always feel is right for me. It is such an encouragement and truly refreshing. Thank you so so much!
Thank you so very much for these encouraging words about the Holy Spirit !! It is just what I need right now (and forever) my husband has abandoned me and is emotionally abusing me. If I leave him I will be homeless. While I’m going through this trial in my life, it’s wonderful to be reminded that I have the Holy Spirit (Jesus) with me always. God bless
That is such a well balanced, inspirational message. So good and yet again so timely. Thank you Berni and all who minister at Christianityworks.
Berni. Thank you so much for Blessing us with God’s word on a way it is easy to understand. I look forward to reading your email every morning. Thanks again and God Bless you. Philip
Mr. Dymet Sir and the people of Christianityworks, my gratitude for feeding us daily our daily bread from the Master. It is true that life can be overwhelming and many times i find myself hungering for food to strengthen my soul and nourish my body…and with the plethora of self-help, miracle menus being peddled in the market place of ideas it is indeed difficult to choose what is really food that nourishes and sustains… your ministry has done me good and i daresay many, many people. Please continue giving us real food for the soul. GOD bless you abundantly, in the mighty name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, AMEN!!! I am Respectfully yours
Thankyou for your session on Radio RPH each week day morning. Muriel and I appreciate the positive program that goves us a good start for the day.
Barrie & Muriel Meyer
This is something I’m currently struggling with so I glorify God for bringing it to my attention.
I had a good laugh when I read, ‘our own personal wilderness tour’. God does exactly that when He thinks we need it. Thank you Berni Dymet for insightful post
I love listening to your fresh for you today and different perspective. I listen and read them as part of my morning quiet time. They are so relevant to every day life.
Thanks Christianity works.
Thanks so much for your help on this site! Reading today on the heart I was shown sin in my heart, pride and arrogance, ego and self-centeredness. I so needed to recognize that so I could repent. All you said in this series was very, very needed.
Thank you so much. My elderly father is driving me nuts as you say and wants to control absolutely everything even in my home. This is just what I needed to hear to. Thank you. I am also a bit like dad so obviously need to learn to be more flexible so I do not do this same thing to my children. God works in many ways to communicate with us.
Genuinely appreciate your laid back style of sharing the great news. Must be an Aussie trait 😊 Simple and effective. Keep up the great work. Your friend and fellow believer, Randall
Thank you Bernie so much for your direct and informative way of putting the true meaning of Easter, I love and appreciate your daily devotions which help me every day to get closer to God through my bible study.I just wanted to thank you and to say” keep up your good work”
This is just what I need to hear right now I feel it is heaven sent just for me. thank you.
I am grateful to God for allowing me to learn His Word through ‘Fresh’. I am aware of why I failed in many plans.
Although am a born again Christian I had never sat down to hear from God before making any decision.
Whenever I would hear of any business idea, I would become excited and make a decision.
Oh God help me to start afresh, in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
It was very informative and engrossing too.
Om Prakash Tyagi
Wonderful way of expressing God’s Hope for our daily lives. I agree everyday hope is less than the hope that God gives knowing that every day is a NEW day in God’s HOPE for his children……..
Anger is my stubborn sin, while driving along one day behind some one doing 40 ks in a 60 zone,i was livid. The thoughts in my head were many but finished with “God i am surpposed to be a Christian what’s with all these thoughts”. Well you wouldn’t believe the thoughts that followed they went something like this. Maybe the person in front of you nearly had an accident just a short while ago, Maybe they are driving for the first time by them self, maybe there is something wrong with the car, maybe they are returning from a funeral, and the list went on, leaving me shrinking in my seat with my thoughts now apologizing to God for being so ( ) there’s a word that fits there some where. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and everything else will be given unto you” Wisdom versus anger? The battle is not over but thanks be to God He has enlightened me a little more to prepare me for the next one. Thank you for the “Stubborn sin” episodes which have further enlightened me to push forward for the prize that one day awaits us.
Keep up the great work
Thank you for this teaching – I used to think I was an encourager – but through your series I’ve confirmed – I am a carer! It’s a world of difference – and I am trying to confirm my secondary personality type – thanks again for this great lesson!
Hi Bernie. I’ve enjoyed your fresh, down-to-earth, Biblical nuggets of wisdom from your “A Different Perspective” program for several years, and still do. I like your new website: it’s very colorful. I do miss, however, your presence at Oneplace.com, which was easier to get to, but I suppose I will get used to going here, to your website, in the future. (You know about “old horses” and “new tricks”!). Thank you for hanging in there and I wish you many more years of blessings for you and your family and your ministry.
Dear Bernie and Helpers
I dearly wish to thank you for all your reassurance . I have been going through a lot for the past 6 years. A lot of financial hardship and emotional reoccurrence. The Psalms are so good, and your messages are a grand thing to have. May our father bless and Keep The organization for its blessings on people like my wife and myself
I have listened to your third easter talk and want to thank you for presenting the whole message of the gospel so clearly. I have been listening to christian radio during work for the past 6 months and this is the first time I have heard anyone speak of God’s justice and hell; what we are saved from, not just of Gods love and what he can do for us.
I find it difficult to share the gospel as I don’t know where to start or how to present a concise message, you have given me a 10 min structure to copy.
Thank you Berni and your team for my daily devotional it helps me to get closer to Jesus and his word. Thank you for the booklets too. I look forward to receiving them too. Thank you for spreading his word. God bless
Thanks yet again Berni!! We are such weak humans sometimes that we forget the strength we have when our Father is with us!!!
Thanks Berni. We need to hear this offered I believe. Our family is suffering at the moment from very prideful choices and behaviour in life. BUT thanks to God, when we humble ourselves before Him, and others, and ask for forgiveness . . . . God is good !!!
Hi Thelma, yes technology has brought us this far. We thank God for the opportunity to share His word!….God bless you.
Thank you so so much! Your words have inspired me. Being in the wilderness at the moment, your words come at just the right time for me.
Wonderfully worded and I believe it was personally “Fresh” for me today… Thank you
I need to think of God more often, it would be an awesome thing to have Him direct my steps. You know I am going to put that on my pray list, because doing things my way just don’t cut it. More of Jesus’s way and less of mine, You’re a great thought provoker Berni, thank you.
I believe that Jesus died for me and not scared of death if this is God’s desire. God bless you with this wonderful encouraging words. AMEN!
Good morning, I just finished reading how to Stop feeling sorry for yourself and it struck me so hard as this week I have felt the weight of depression just on me. I knew that I was under attack from satan and I prayed and told satan to get out of my life and thanked God. However, I am steel feeling so low. Could I ask for some prayers please.
Thank you and God Bless
Angie (in Ireland)
I really enjoy and learn from all you send. I especially how summarized the lessons are and yet still full. Thank you
Dear Berni! I’m really impressed with Fresh For You. It was indeed a great day… free from worry, free from shackles and free from pain and suffering. God planned all this for us through JESUS HIS SON. May we be THANKFULL that HIS LOVE IS ETERNAL.
Thank you so much Berni for your message today (don’t let circumstances control you). This has long been a difficulty for me. I’ve gone from being successful in the world’s eyes, to being a downright failure (again in the world’s eyes). I try constantly to overcome the negative feelings about this, but it’s not easy. Fresh today helped me to begin to see things in a different way. I know it’s not the end of the story, but with help and support from you, and people like you, I’m sure I’ll get to the end of this road. God bless you, and thank you, Noel.
Thank you christianityworks, I love your devotionals. God’s word is true. May he give us more grace to believe in him.
You always keep it short, simple and sweet, Berni. And very, very relevant! May God bless you and your team abundantly during this Christmas and through the years to come.
An Excellent message of Christ’s death and resurrection, and the account of the frightened disciples and Mary. Praise God Jesus the Christ is Risen Indeed!
Your confidence and faith in the Lord are inspiring and one is encouraged to pray more for unsaved members of their household.
Thank you Berni and all the Team from Christianity Works.
May the Lord God continue your world wide ministry. Thank you.
God bless us all.
I need this opportunity DAILY, because God shows me every day that I need to hear the Word of GOD, each and every DAY!! THANK YOU for this opportunity!!👏💝🥰😍❣️💗💥
Everyday I believe God is less the big stick bearer, and more the loving kind compassionate longsuffering God we all need. It seems to be taking for ever to learn this but, little by little I am getting there. Thanks Berni for your great work you do teaching and reminding us to draw closer to God in so many ways.
Berni is still fresh, youthful, amazing, always relevant, and reaching out with God’s word. Truly making a difference after years of work…..building a vibrant legacy….thanks to God.
He must work with wonderful people as well. It doesn’t happen by accident. You’re able to keep him charged up with his positive attitude that helps us all move forward in our faith…
Many thanks and God bless the wonderful things you’re all led to do for us all…..I have introduced his messages to so many people. Two have come to Christ at least…a few more I am certain are on their journey towards faith….it’s just taking a little longer….just like the message in your seed story today…
Mega thanks and prayers to you all.!!!
Mark & Susan Caufield
Thank you Berni for your words from the heart of God. My life is a bit up and down and I think that my relationship with God is not there. I just need to spend more time talking with the Lord in all that I do and reading his word. Thanks again for the message. God bless, Phil Houghton
Berni, Thanx for all the words of encouragement. I find it extremely uplifting. Right now I’m facing a crisis. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME. Pray that I don’t lose track and that I hang onto Gods promises. Zanap
COMMEN TS REFER TO – PART 1
Brilliant and vitally necessary for this time we are in !
It is absolutely essential. Everyone Gets To Know This Message.
Thank you. God bless you , I always. Enjoy hearing you when I hear you on 94.1 Wollongong Christian Radio when I am in my car ..I pray that all who hear you will be touched by the Holy Spirit. Not long ago l gave my eldest son who is going through a difficult time to start reading your notes ! Thank you. Martin
Thank you so much for the inspirational messages I receive daily. It is so amazing that it is often a starting point in casual conversations I have with people in a queue at a shop or bank. May God bless this vital ministry.
Thanks for the word He certainly is great but believing his best for us is sometimes very hard.
Having his promises is the key l believe.
These daily readings help me be more objective as I head into a busy day. It’s great to start the day reflecting on God’s Word and growing my relationship with Him.
I am so thankful Jesus came into this world that if we believe we shall have eternal life. I believe this to be true.
Thankyou for sharing these devotionals with me, for preachimg the truth and holding to it, relationship with Jesus, trusting in His finished work on the cross. Is my only hope and prayer, not wavering in my faith, no matter how tuff things get in my life, and they have been very very hard the past few years. Jesus is my Rock.
Grateful for this word in my inbox daily. Being reminded God Himself is with me is wonderful.
Thanks so much for this ministry!! It’s a great help and encouragement.
Thank you very much for this powerful word today. I am truly blessed by it. GOD bless you all
I love your messages. They are inspiring and seem to be exactly what I need on the day I receive them. Thank you so much and May our Lord continue to bless you abundantly.
Well I just joined this site some moments ago and am loving it more grace and kindled flame of God abide with you more 🙏🔥
I never thought about the difference between between pressure and stress. It is enlightening and empowering. What a great way to start my day!
I absolutely love this sight. I get my daily devotion, I can read the Bible, I can listen.
I love hearing and reading the word. I love Jesus so very much.
Thank you for sharing this bible app and having so many ways to learn about God.
Awesome Teaching! May God’s blessings be upon you and may He continue to bless your work abundantly.
I love these teachings ❤️❤️❤️ I am particularly blessed to be able to listen and follow the messages visually. Thank you publishers of Fresh.
Hi there! Thank you for this great truth and message. I am feeling like that “dry stick” right now and really have to trust in our Lord Jesus to see us through these times where I am restricted to return to China to resume my work at a Primary School. I am applying for online jobs like crazy, but with no success yet. I feel like quitting right now!
Thank you so much for daily encouragement and guidance from God’s word. I really appreciate it and benefit from it.
Thank You Berni from Christianity Works for your strengthening ministry to us all. All of us find occasions when we feel very sad, angry with an injustice, a hurt from someones unkind opinions which becomes so heavy if they add friends names to their opinion. We feel stripped of our own self-worth, and it is only when we run to our Father God our Abba Father and talk to Him about our pain that we begin to heal and take a breath and realize that He is not condemning us. I share with trusted confidential people who are a huge encouragement, support and help, especially if they are gifted with discernment of the Word. Sometimes the pain is caused by a death or great loss or accident which was not expected, then it is a savage threat to our faith. It is then we remember God’s promises, that “He will never leave nor forsake us.” That He loves us and will provide his provision and comfort for us. We need to learn to wait upon God and trust in Him to work it for good as we love and believe in Him.Pray, thank and praise God for being in charge and Sovereign over all, We can pray in the name of Jesus our Lord and Saviour, God bless and strengthen our faith.
Thank you for spreading the light of God’s love throughout the world enveloped by darkness.
I was slowly getting tired and being overwhelmed by the darkness of injustice and corruption. The dark seems to always have the upper hand despite all the efforts to stand firm with the light. These series about Joseph and about holding on the dream that God gave him despite the adversity he experienced, has given me a new perspective and strength in facing the battles challenges ahead. I shall hold on the dream that God planted in my heart. And hope to see my fellow Filipinos live in dignity someday, especially those who are living under inhumane conditions brought about by economic poverty.
Once again, may God bless you and keep you!
Fabulous … so informative! I now know how to work on my weaknesses. Thx Berni for a splendid broadcast. Also thank you for sharing your wisdom and knowledge so generously.
Good morning Berni and Christianityworks, Well it’s been six months since my husband died and now I seem sadder then I was when I heard his last breath. He has gone on without me. I look forward to this e-devotional every morning.
Good message reminded me not to give up just to keep on going and climbing my mountain with God’s hand leading the way.
I used to listen to this some years ago on radio and found it to be easy to understand and loved the way you explained things,now I can have it on my iPad. I’m really pleased.
Very encouraging, been through a lot of tough times, all hit at once, this teaching was very timely. Thankyou. Will reread it often.
I enjoy your fresh devotion every day and look forward to read it, it really makes you think twice and most of the time it is as if the Word is especially for me, Thank you so much for the daily devotion,
Your sister in Christ
Hi. I do like Berni ‘s teaching style, which I listen to when I can on Christian Radio stations. He seems to put things into a very down to earth & simple lanquage. It is a great help to myself & many others in my Spiritual growth & walk with the Lord.God Bless you all at C.W. ! Nick
Thank you for mixing God’s word with your insight and experience to give us easy-to-understand applications for our lives. I enjoy reading them every day.
I am not good with words ; expressing how I feel , but I am going to try …..
…I love hearing the Word ! I feel blessed; becoming closer as I am always learning something new !
I want to express how “ Thankful “ I am knowing this broadcast is always there !!
I hope I can “ SHOW “ my appreciation, financially, one day .
This is my prayer. May our Heavenly Father bless all of you who work so hard to get this out there ; reaching and blessing many lives .
I want to believe that this deadly virus opens hearts .
People coming back to God . 🙏❤️
Thank you for a fresh word of God daily shared to us. I haven’t been watching the channel but thank you for the email system it keeps me updated, The clips are short, easy to go through and very educational or informative. With this I have learnt the importance of listening before rushing to speak and be defensive even when it is not necessary, I have learnt the significance of controlling anger and how anger doesn’t help us live the way God want us to live.We thank God for such sites. May the good Lord continue blessing this program, may it grow to reach many souls in Jesus name. Thank you for the e-book, it came at the right time when I needed it.
Great lesson, And since it’s only going to get much worse for Christians, very timely.
I thoroughly enjoy your devotionals which I listen to on Radio Pulpit as well as in my laptop. Very inspiring and gown to earth teachings that one can apply in our lives. Keep up the great work and God bless.
I needed this today. I have just relocated back to the city where I grew up so that I will be with family and friends as we all grow in the Lord together. Satan has tried to shake my faith, but HE cannot! The Joy of the Lord is my strength.. 4 of my 6 nieces and nephews that live here are having serious health and other problems. Satan is busy. Monday after traveling to a major hospital about 90 miles from our home, and taking care of some business, I sat down to relax and my nose’s started to bleed profusely and my blood pressure went up. No dizziness and no pain! the nose bleed continued for more than 30 minutes. I called my neighbor, who came immediately and brought her blood pressure cuff. She saw the blood continuing to flow profusely and decided we should go immediately to the hospital. We were seen immediately in the ER., where my nose continued to bleed profusely . The ER physician could not stop the bleeding with medication sprays. He finally decided to put packing in my left nostril and sent me home to return today for the packing to be removed. I am believing the Lord for complete healing. I have not had a nose bleed in more than 60 years. I have no health problems at 80 years of age. So know satan is busy. he is a liar. God will see me through this storm of life. Appreciate your prayers for all the changes in my life and those of family and friends.
I feel like you talk to me not at me. We were pastors and got disillusioned.Begging for fellow ministers to connect with us and help our growing community. Have sat in and out of churches since then. Still very disconnected …
Thank you. Today God spoke to me through you. Even though I am not a Christian, I believe that it was fate which made me stumble upon your site and I got this wake up call about my health. I will need to read these four episodes once or twice more to grasp fully what you have said and try to modify my life. God works through unseen hands and today I have witnessed it.
Thank you for this message. I needed to be reminded to step out in faith. God is good all the time, all the time God is good.
He’s never forsaken me.
Wow so beautiful and inspirational….. nothing like God’s love and we should portray it to one another….. thank you May God bless you all.
I am blessed by the story of Abraham. He was full of imperfections but the turning point was his faith in God.
Lord help my unbelief.
Hi Pastor Berni,
I really appreciate your message today about being filled with the Holy Spirit. I am always praying to God the Father through Jesus, each day to fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit, I really want the Holy Spirit to move mightily in my life so He can use me to advance His Kingdom and bring Glory to His name.
Hi Bernie, it seems you read my mind. 3 years ago I was retrenched from a well paying job. Today it seems everything coming to a head and I am so overwhelmed. Bills, bills and my health suffering in the process. I hang onto every devotional that you e mail to me. Its such an inspiration. A big thank you. With your devotionals I see that I am not alone in my boat.
As promised, He will not forsake me but its hard for me to stay focussed.
Please pray for me as I battle through this period of my life.
Message touched my soul. Things in the present place seem to be dried, but God will have definite plan to take me to other place in order to bless somebody in that place. Surrendering myself for Gods plan in my life. Ready to act as per the will of God.
Thanks for this message from the life of Elijah.
This message lifted me up. I was in the valley of hopelessness and despair.
That God Almighty calls me precious in His sight and loved. I can scarcely contain myself.
It is then settled and well with my soul.
Today through your ministry our Father has spoken to me and I’m so grateful to Christianity Works. By Faith I believe God is going to pour down rain on my business so I can be a blessing for his Kingdom. Thank you Bernie as I continue to listen to Gods teaching through your ministry I am blessed to be a blessing……
After a tragic life changing event (my home destroyed by fire). My long term partner and my relationship did not survive the stress.
We hurt each other with suspicion and ugly words. I left, rented a small flat to regain my emotional strength, took a long look at myself.
These beautiful words have given me the strength to meet him with a heart full of love and not hatred.
I’ve really enjoyed these teachings and have learnt a great deal. Made notes and will hopefully be able to apply them to my life with God’s help and mercy.
Thankyou so much the email was perfectly timed and an answer to a prayer.
Thank you for your timely focus on the Word. I’m trying to focus on daily attention to an awareness of the Holy Spirit, which is the best way to be motivated each day!
How true to always remember to be the caring loving hand of our Lord Jesus in others’ lives. Thank you so much for this incredible ministry. Such a blessing to have found you 🙏
Wonderful series and so very helpful. Never looked at it this way. Thanks so very much!
Thanks so much for being Obedient to the call of God on your life. Especially for the fact that you’re so Honest and open about yourself. Today I heard you say that you’re no Super Christian. And that you made mention of having a first wife. I was feeling a little condemned and felt like an outcast from the Church seeing I’m a divorced Christian man. I felt so free and blessed to hear those words. And look at your life in Christ and talk of your favourite person on planet Earth your wife Jacqui.
Im not finished off. And that the Lord can still use me also as He’s done and is doing in and through you my beloved brother in Christ. God’s blessing Gary.
Thank you for such an inspiring series I just read.I am thinking of joining a new church and this was written just for me.I so enjoy your daily devotional thank you.God bless you
Thank you for your timely reminders that God is there for us and knows each one of us . Thank you for writing of his goodness and care.
Dear Berni. I look forward to your daily Fresh messages, and even forward them to a friend of mine in Amsterdam every day. They are like your great booklets – easy to read and down-to-earth. Easy to understand and so well written. Christianityworks is an amazing organisation – please keep up the great work if you can. Unfortunately I am on a Disability Pension and can’t afford to donate to your causes, but please don’t dislike me for that. I think that God understands. I pray to him daily, at any time of the day or night. He is my friend, like you, Berni!! Take good care of yourself and your family. Have a good Easter and may the blessings of our Lord be with you always. Sincerely, Carol,
I look forward to starting my day each morning with Fresh. It has helped me so much in my walk with Jesus. It is just the perfect length and I listen each morning. This is such a wonderful and oh-so important ministry.
Hi I seem to be really struggling with fear at the moment.. what I’ve just read has helped me.. I often think about David and all the fear he went through hiding in caves, been hunted but he never gave up on God..
I really liked it. I didn’t think about why God rested, it gives me a fresh look at rest. Thank you.
I really loved your message today, me and my husband discussed it. My husband is really really really lovely, and is slowly coming to the lord, I want you to know how much I love him. I believe that God truly chose us for each other. I started being with him at 17 years old, and at 19 we were married and we have been together 35 years. He is so supportive of me, my faith, he is slowly coming to faith, and he is great at protecting etc. I discussed your message to day with him, but just want to query that message that we want to hear what our husbands have done today, Not saying I dont, I love to hear what my Stevey has done today, but most likely that is all he will talk about, he will not ask me about my day, feelings etc. I really felt that your message today came from a mans perspective, as really I agree with everything you say, about wanting to join with my husband emotionally, but feel that he is already fully occupied with what he has done today, and dont get me wrong, I am so blessed he wants to share that. But much more importantly if you want to see from a Womans perspective, I want him to ask about me, what have I done today, how have things gone. I love my husband, but I cant remember the last time he actually involved himself fully in my life. Hope you get this Berni as I think it is really important in understanding a woman’s perspective, Love from Mary a sister in Christ xxxxx
I really needed to hear this message. I have for the first time in my life been feeling a disconnection from the church, not God, but church.
MOST EXCELLENT !!
Be encouraged to continue speaking the Word !!
Thank You Bernie.I Enjoy your teaching, and enjoyed listening to you on Vision radio tonight on Psalms 31 _34
Would it be possible for me to have a copy of your booklet “Victory Over Impossible Odds” please.
I myself have been in a dark place with the Loss of my Beautiful Granddaughter 22 years old to suicide last year and other tough times.
God Bless You and Your Ministry.
What a wonderful message of hope for me. I have been praying for those that are not saved with hardened hearts, my children and grandchildren for 25 years. Thankyou Berni for your encouragement and fueling my faith. Blessings, at 8 every morning I look for your message and know it will touch many hearts
Excellent! Something we need to be reminded of daily.
Thank you and God bless,
Thank you for sharing the Word of God. I enjoy listening to your daily videos and hearing you explain each lesson. I love how you compare each with an example for us to understand it better. Thanks. God bless you. Love you and y staff.
What a wonderful word of truth and revelation, that God teaches the humble and we become humble to know how to demonstrate and live a life of humility. What a awsome God we serve.
“When a fire burns in your heart to please Him in all that you do, then the desires of your heart will change. The desires of your heart will, all of a sudden, be in line with His will.”
Thank you so much, this is so good! This psalm has never been explained so well to me. <3
I used to love listening to Berni on Rhema Fm Newcastle but he was often on a Sunday morning when I would be at church. I am very glad now to reconnect with and become part of this ministry, to feed on more truths of the depth of God’s love for each of us and take hold of our identity in him standing against the devils crippling lies. Thanks Berni.
I’m so grateful for every thing I read and how the more read the more I learn about Jesus and you read one part it opens up other verses and that is beautiful thank you Bernie.
I looked back though the messages I have received. This one stood out. This the answer to my prayer. Which is exactly what the message is about. Thank You Lord.
I absolutely love your daily FRESH devotional. It’s that golden nugget of God’s word speaking to me throughout the day. It’s short, but filled with God’s truth and the message that it contains, inspire/ convict me to be the person that God has called me to be. I especially appreciate your conversational approach in each message. I feel as though I’m sitting and having a good cuppa with you, as a friend and brother in the Lord, sharing scripture and practical ways that we can live out our calling as believers in Christ!
Just what I needed to hear today , Blessings,.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!! Ive been looking for something like this and you guys have been a blessing.
Thanks for saying it as it is. That is how it is in the Kingdom of God.
Sho! Thanks pastor Berni, for the word of encouragement & wisdom! That’s not so easy, I must admit. I like to read (when I have time) what you share. It’s short & to the point! God bless you! I’m sure you also pray for us, that have challenges, in certain areas, like these! God bless you sir, with good health & revelation knowledge!
As a current member of Gideon’s International I have come to appreciate and see the ongoing commitment to God that people make who have come to faith as a direct result of reading God’s Word.
I have been a member of Gideons since 1980 (approx 6 years after coming to faith in God through our Lord Jesus) in Australia and am now serving our Lord in New Zealand.
The life changing power of God’s word is unimaginable and it brings me great joy to see transformed lives through the Gospel of peace, love and hope in Jesus.
May the Lord continue to bless you and your ministry.
I like the lesson about living in fear and that really hit home for me. The lesson helped me look at things in a different light. Thanks
Berni, it’s just what I’ve been looking for to bring me closer to God. Inspirational every day.
Always a great help to me and I am grateful. God bless you and your family and ministry.
I just want to thank God for you Bernie
Your daily devotionals are really inspiring been going through some trials for a while
Was feeling little bit low today and your msg today has really encouraged me may God bless and continue to bless your ministry
Thank you for the books too they are very encouraging
Love in Christ Chrissy
Receiving God’s joy in sorrow is soo profound for me right now. Wow! Awesome words. In the midst of death in our family we can have joy in our sorrow of knowing that they are experiencing a heavenly joy.
Praying for you and the team.
I have learnt that my efforts to be effective should entirely depend on God’s power, not on my own strength.
This is also taking me to Proverbs 3: 5-6.
Oh! Help us God
Puseletso Mantahli Thobileng
That was brief and to the point and I enjoyed it I truly enjoyed it
That was brief and to the point and I truly enjoyed this lesson
Thank you for a beautiful reminder of the end. I must admit that when I saw the word Revelation, I paused. I have always been frightened of that passage, but you covered it really well. “And on that day I want you standing with me in the confidence of knowing,” but still gave it the importance necessary. Thank you.
Need to hear this message time to time.
Several bouts of pride and arrogance made me fall repeatedly.
Learning to be humble under the mighty hands of God.
Pray for God’s grace on me to stay humble.
Thank you Preacher.
Berni, that is such a great word and it releases so many people from the chains of financial possessions and of materialism.
Thank you for your faithfulness and servent heart.
Dear Berni Dymet
Thanks for your word 4 today . The Empty Cup ,
Yes we need words of encouragement and have fellowship with one another. In these times of peoples’ unbelief .
God be with you I pray .
I get great comfort from the devotionals.
I read them every day and I listen to the messages.
I really look forward to these daily emails, the messages always seem right on time. I believe God speaks through you.
I would like to thank you with all my heart for this message. This is what I need right now. I can literally hear God speaking to me through you, Mr. Dymet. I already know this. I have been praying for a humble, gentle, quiet and patient spirit for quite sometime now.. But to hear this message particularly now and being explained the way you did, touched my soul. Thank you!
I’m always praying for you and all the staff of Christianityworks. May the Lord expand your borders and bless you and your families.
I read my Bible with a new curiosity and interest after reading the free ebook. I am reading 1 Samuel and I can’t wait to pick it up again as I know it well but have not read much for a long time . Although I listen to a small online scripture every morning it is not the same as reading for half an hour and becoming immersed in Gods word so thank you for prompting me to do so as my spiritual life had been dry for so long but now I feel the flame re igniting .
Excellent what an excellent message. I love that we can either read or listen or both!
Praise the name of the Lord…this channel really makes me grow in Christ since the day I subscribed to it..thanks and keep on putting me on the same rock…To God Be The Glory.
Big Gary was truly led by the LORD I just love your “Fresh” devotion,I listen and read it daily. “Thank you LORD for this daily devotion,I love it,Amen.”
Insightful words. I am at a crossroad in my life right now and I need all the words of encouragement that I can get! Thank you
Every time I listen to the daily devotion. I receive great insight and I always feel so uplifted.
Each message just makes me appreciate God’s word even more. It’s so wonderful
May God keep working through you and the entire Christianity works team. Thank You.
I’m very weak in this area but hopefully your encouragement and your prayers will certainly help me out God bless you 😊
Thank you. I don’t have any Christian friends and do not go to a church, so this is a wonderful resource for me to hear God’s word and feel connected to Jesus 🙂
Berni, thank you & the Lord, for his gift in you. I mean, the way in which you simplify understanding God’s Word! Thank you for the service you follow from God as you help me and many thousands of others to have understanding of His Word. That’s enrichment for us all. God’s continued blessings upon you & Christianityworks! Your Brother in Christ, Ross.
Thanks for inspiring me to read my Bible more for myself rather than just depend on Pastors and Preachers for providing the word. I need to engage with God personally through his word for Spiritual Growth.
Also Thank you for your great Fresh Daily Devotional.., always a Word in Season.
God Bless You
What a beautiful message. It’s exactly what I needed. You answered my prayer. Thank you
I’m really blessed by the Word daily Berni and can share it with others as it will surely touch someone out there in this crazy world we living in.
Very good. Helped me a lot. Seem to have been on an extended wilderness tour!
Thank you for your faithfulness, by you keep sharing God’s truth everyday, you are changing people’s lives for good! God’s Word is changing me. Only yesterday, rather than getting angry with the driver in front of me who cut me up. I prayed a blessing over them. This happened three times in my journey. Thank you and God Bless all who read this.
Thank you Jesus so much for your words today. I needed to hear this today my husband and I just refinanced our house to pay off some debt we got into, and I found that not all of our debt is getting paid off, but the big ones are. So I was stressing out about it, but now I’m going to let God take the wheel so to speak. Thank you
Well I sure didn’t think of it that way, but praise God the way you put it God sending his Son to die for me when I was living a wild life style thank you Jesus
Really liked that, so often we pray and ask for things. It is so important to talk to God worship Him and yeah sing to Him, and I am going to try this just pray and thank Him and glorify Him for a week.
Hi Dr. Solomon,
I’m glad you reached us with this question.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with you and surely nothing wrong with God. He has always spoken to men.
Now, Berni has written a book titled “How Can I Hear God Speak to Me?”
I believe it will help you.

Every Blessing and stay safe in this ‘Passing-away’ season!
I am 46 years old and struggling through life after the demise of my 20 year marriage. Despite enormous upheaval and inner turmoil and considerably sadness I fell to my knees about 6 months ago asking God to heal my broken life … a few months ago I was baptised into a local Pentecostal Church and truly I have never experienced such inner peace and healing. As I said life is still hard but somehow I know God’s love and mercy will in time help me to bear fruit and move forward a better, more gentle and loving man. Oh Lord, please I pray that you come upon all that feel tortured and burdened by broken families. Thank you Bernie for your wonderful works of love and Christianity. I listen to you every day and would love to met you one day. God Bless.
Dear Berni, Thank you very much for the message. I started reading this message from Episode one and I couldn’t stop from just one. Kept on reading it. Very well written and Thanks again. God be with you, Emmanuel
Good morning Bernie . I just listened to your message on faith. The faith that pleases God I really needed to hear that this morning because my husband and myself were very disappointed about a rejected application for a job my husband had applied for because he really believed that he had got that job and that was the door that God had opened for him. We prayed every day about it but it never happened. When I woke up this morning faith was the only thing on my mind. So my husband and I will keep praying in faith. Hebrews 11 verse 1 is a verse I mutter every day. So please pray for my husband to get a job soon if it’s the will of God it will be. Thank you and God bless🙏
Thank you so much for the practical advice – I really have wanted freedom for years but was stuck between the “do it myself” and the “couch potato” approach – with your insights and I’m experiencing real transformation and victory – thanks again.
I am blessed by the Lord through Berni whose notes I read every day before anything else, thank you.
God bless you man of God. I’m still left in amazement after reading all the four discovering the hidden things of God. It’s helping us so much in our own wilderness. We’ve been waiting for a word for our trial in the wilderness and we’ve received it.
God bless you
Thank you for daily encouraging words that speak so much to my heart and let me face my day with a different perspective- it keeps me on track
Thank you Berni for your daily devotional it has helped me to know and get closer to my Lord and Savour Jesus Christ. Thank you for the book on how I can hear God speak to me. Can you please send me the next booklet? I look forward to reading these books it gives me revelation on my life on this earth. Thank you.
Oh, this is so true! And we forget that Scripture tells us to come BOLDLY before the throne. God gets excited when His children ask for BIG things- that bless not only us, but those around us- for His glory. 💗
So far it’s been good I just downloaded it
Randy L Taylor
I appreciate how genuine you are in your faith Bernie and how relationship oriented you are without a lot of religious waffle.
Keep giving us God’s word fresh… it often speaks to me with direction and purpose.
You are a big encouragement to the body of CHRIST keep going.
Love Steve and Lisa Waghorn
God CHOSE for Jesus to be born in a stable because, after all, lambs are born in a stable and Jesus is THE LAMB.
Why don’t you’ll believe in mother Mary?
Why there is never anything mentioned about her?
LOVE THIS. IT HAS BEEN DARK AND RAINY HERE FOR DAYS. IT THEN STARTS TO LEAK INTO YOUR SPIRIT. THIS WAS VERY REFRESHING.
It’s so true. I have a mental health issue but I have found that the more you focus on the Lord and his word there is a freedom and liberty. There will always be a cost but the prize is so worth and amazing. Truly there is power in the name of Jesus and it can’t be refuted.
Thank you, Bernie, for the ‘Fresh’ that talks about faith being better than gold. I’m suffering from arthritis in my neck and one hip is going to require a full hip replacement. I’m only 59. My job has caused these issues. But I continue to be in the word each day and hoping a little spark of what read or hear on the christian radio, including your message, will help me through the day.
Thank you for your words!
God Bless you.
Hi Berni Dymet, it Victoria Onikosi again. I like your podcasts and your fresh. “The battle is the Lord’s” is really what I needed. God bless
I’ve been going through a lot of trials and tribulations and your devotions have been what gets me through. When things are going wrong in your life, it’s like a veil is put on your face and while you can see you can not clearly see. You know to trust God and his word but you’re struggling. But, when I hear it from a different person it’s uplifting, it’s prophetic, it’s fresh😁.
The Forgiveness topic discussed is absolutely mind blowing. I would love to get to know more, please. It is easy to say “I forgive”, and then really mean it. I have trouble doing that. Please can you help me??
What true words, my pain from my husband leaving me nearly three years ago can still cause emormous pain, just the other day it just came on, I prayed to God our Abba Father to heal me, I contacted my Pastor and she prayed over me and I felt the pain go. As I stand for restorage of our marriage I have many many doubts that this is God’s will, but I hold onto Jesus word,, “Ask anything in my name and my Father will give to you” (Not quoted exactly). Thank you Bernie for your wonderful words.
I so appreciate your daily messages. I have been ill and can’t get to church. Thank you again!
May you continue to be a blessing to us all Berni. This is very helpful!
Thank you for the words! They made me realize that I truly need to live with clean hands & pure heart.
I want to thank you for the message God is with me and watching me may God get the glory.Amen, Amen,Amen.
This message is so very powerful. I like everyone else need to live connected all the time. I once asked The Lord for a permanent reminder of the sacrifice He paid for me, so when I got up from reading His Word it would go with me. So I know The Lord wants us to live in relationship every moment of every day. Thank you Berni and all the people who make the ministry of ChristianityWorks a success.
Good morning just wanna say love you guys for the wonderful work that you doing I’m only a week on christianity works but it’s such a blessing to listen to the word of God keep up the good work I’ll keep on praying for you guys and I would like you to pray for me and my family to enjoy the day and God bless you all
Thought I was losing it anger frustration over it and all the above. Back to the grind tomorrow. Such an awesome word. Thank you
Thanks for these messages Berni. My heart says Amen to all that you are sharing this week. Your messages are encouraging me to want to give even more as I understand more clearly God’s heart for the poor and needy. My husband and I have seen time and time again that God’s generosity to us encourages us to be even more generous to those in need both near and far. I believe that God calls his people to be open handed and open hearted to those in need around us. Blessings to you. Brenda
Then how can we honor and still go to war against them?
I read the devotionals every day and they give me comfort. I’m very troubled by various personal things and struggle each day but the readings help a lot. I’m also very grateful so thank you. I do believe in the Lord and speak to Him each day but struggle to feel I’m doing the right thing. Thank you for the effort that goes into the messages they really are very helpful in coping each day. God bless you!
I love this message. The audio makes it so much more understandable. Cant wait to hear more.
Hope everything’s well. The Breath of God fresh devotion is very timely, For the longest time I felt like I am already living in the valley of bones. That I lost the hope of ever getting free from the bondage I am in right now and I lost the joy of the Lord.
I receive God’s word.
Thank you so much for the daily devotion that you always send each day. I appreciate it.
God bless you and your ministry.
I am so much blessed of the teachings here, please help me pray that I can forgive.
I think the three minute podcasts are of excellent value reflecting the scriptures in easy to understand language relevant to this generation lifestyle. Well presented Christianityworks.
Thank you for your teaching devotional. I am currently looking for a way to share it with my friends and family on Facebook. I try to share all the devotions I do on Facebook. It is my hope that if just one person reads just one of them, I have somehow done something that day, because you see I do not leave my house but rarely due to mental health issues. I am now going back to start looking to see if I can share this. I pray that I can because it was very meaningful to me. Thank you for your publications and the voice recordings that go with them. In the 5-6 years I have been doing online devotions I have always read them. It is just in the last 2 days I have listened to the ones that are available on audio.
Thanks so much for this reminder. God bless you and your family and this ministry 🙏
I am a Catholic but I enjoy hearing your radio show, A Different Perspective, as I drive to work each morning. I particularly like this 7 Deadly Sins series as it was discussed rationally without judgement nor condemnation.
Basing on what I heard, I am a prophet type (maybe that is why I am a lawyer by profession) and my weakness is Wrath or Anger. I get easily angry when people do not meet my expectations or I feel they are not doing what they should. This series helped me stop and ponder of what I should do to get out of it.
I absolutely love listening to your programs. It inspires and encourage me on my drive to work each morning. Thank you and God Bless You.
Listening each day to Fresh has made me re-grow my trust in God. I am working in the UK (I’m Nigerian) as a domestic worker but each day emotionally abused by the family I work for and I cannot report them to authorities because they are family. I always look forward to Fresh message to renew my strength in God.God bless you all.
God is so awesome He never lets me down. PLEASE pray for my husband’s salvation.
Wow, talk about hitting the nail right on the head. I’m a recognition junkie and never realized it for I never recieved it at home ( being abused) so everywhere I went I wanted recognition for my hard work. Also I felt like I was searching for something and asking God while feeling incomplete. When I thought I found what I was looking for only to realize this wasn’t it so like the blind I kept searching for something without knowing what and I believe I found it, maybe soul searching. I don’t know but this teaching above got me good. Thank you
Beautiful! Thank you for reminding us that the beauty of this season is because and only because of HIM, our Savior.
I am recovering from alcohol addiction and the loss of my son. Finding Bernis fresh 4 today has blessed me every morning as l read and listen to his encouraging words. I now have a new life and never want to go back to the past. Thank you Berni
This is awesome.Planting seed in the middle of a famine…..family emotional famine…..expecting God to heal the breach, praying and learning how to reach out wisely, in God’s strength and God’s timing.Knowing what is mine to repent of, and what is another’s personal responsibility. Inviting accountability AND showing continued love and respect for each family member, regardless of whether they “deserve” it; regardless of whether we agree or not, in spite of flaws,failings, misperceptions, fears and broken-heartedness. Somehow, I believe God will redeem our situation. I hope in the Lord.
Berni, I thank God for you and your ministry. Whenever I have a vexing situation that I am dealing with and need some encouragement, I can always log on to your website and get the food I need for my spirit or just listen to your daily podcast.
May you keep up the good work of feeding us Gods word. The entrance of his word does give us light indeed.
Have a blessed day Sir.
I like today’s message…. it seems at times the Word is meant for me …at a time when I need clarity it will find it’s way. Thank you
Thanks very much Berni, I do feel the battle of two striking forces within myself every time when I come to read your message. I always wanted to be a true, strong and faithful believer in Christ as I believe his is the only truth of God revealed to humankind. Although as believers we find it is not easy to follow our Lord’s purpose, but I totally believe in what you are saying. The company of the Holy Spirt is our only hope and strength. Thanks Berni, you are not alone. My prayers and the others are with you. Let us keep praying for the power of the Holy Spirit our only hope to win this battle, and to fulfill God’s purpose for his people. God bless you Berni. Your brother in Christ.
Thank you for such encouraging words from God Himself. I appreciate what the Good Lord is doing through you Sir. Thank you and ALL Glory Be to the Most High God.
I really enjoy as you put it “practical teaching’. It is great to read the bible, but it is really amazing when it can teach us how to deal with what is happening in our lives today. I am able to apply your teachings to my life and look for ways that I can become more obedient to God understanding that there He offers joy, love and hope!
It’s so true , I am a firm believer that when you have the holy spirit in you that no matter what you are going through that “GOD” is always with you,
Good Morning , really so up lifting , its truth at its best and these messages are Wonderful I think , I am a Christian and had much Trauma yet deep down these messages give Comfort not as the World gives but from the Lord our God, nothing compares to it and never will, so thank you to you all for your time and emailing me I am blessed.
May God bless and keep you all, please if you can let Berni know i have been in touch,
Thank you from Barrie Retired aged 71 .
Message sent Tuesday 22nd October 2019 5.36am UK Time .
I really needed this. With the seaosn I’m currently in, it feels like even God isnt there on occasion. Thank you.
Thanx so much Bernie this is such an amazing encouragement
Amen! Very convicting – the Levi’s in my life need the love of Christ not my judgment – very, very, convicting.
Thank you for the message Pastor Berni, for reminding us of the injustice done to our ‘giver of life’ our Lord JESUS.
For He knew what He needed to do to save us all.
God bless you.
I learned from it. I cried many times when reading through it. I needed this at this time in my life .
Wow I’ve got to tell u that really hit home. I’ve been so distracted lately trying to ignore God I empathise trying because ignoring God is about as possible as trying to fly without wings and I think we all need a reminder of why we are alive every now and again. So thank you and God bless you
You are so on track with what I’ve been seeking, Jesus is here for me. The recent bible versus means so much to me as I’m going through an issue . I got hurt at work and am struggling with forgiveness. It didn’t need to happen if the person had listened to me, I would not have gotten hurt. Hurt enough that I will need a full hip replacement probably with 2-5 years to truly heal the pain. I’m sad and struggling.
Your words are always there to pick me up and remind me that God is always there for me. I need to continue to lean on God and ask him how I can forgive the the other person.
I havent been able to go to Church because of the present epidemic. Reading the daily verse is another way of staying connected with God. Besides saying my prayers.
I found this to be very interesting and thought-provoking, Berni. You put it so well. In everyday terms which are easy to comprehend. Thank you, and keep up the good work. I think you’re great in helping spread God’s Word.
I thank Lord Jesus for His grace and mercy in your life and to all your team, God enable you to share His goodness to many including my self, such a revelation! Im sure Holy Spirit will protect you all and bless you day after day, again thank you.
Just as God is always with me, now your podcasts and reminders of scripture also travel with me when I am driving, going to sleep, waiting and just relaxing listening to the Bible quotes. Thank you I have shared your link with my sister and a friend in Christ. May God be with you and all your listeners till it is time for Jesus to rule over us. I know that may be a long time as His patience is amazing.,
I really needed this today , I battle with depression and take meds when our family stays away months at a time and we are not able to drive to visit . With loosing our daughter at 25 our son and family means so much to us and yes we feel crushed lonely and all the emotions when Satan attacks both my husband and my self . This is so beautiful and comforting. God bless you
Simple instruction to change one’s heart! Thankyou Bernie for these messages of encouragement each day! Today’s message was certainly something to ponder upon! May God continue to give you wisdom to share with us so we can have a change of heart to be more
I found the interview with Rick… brilliantly different. I offer each day to my Lord. Remembering that I did is my challenge.
Thank you for SHINING THE SON INTO MY LIFE IN A WAY SO CLEAR, MY HEART IS RUNNING OVER WITH A FEELING OF LOVE. GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN.
Berni has really helped me to wake up each morning excited about my day.
Thorough concise & amp understanding has developed discipline in me.
I am eternally grateful
I think your bible studies that I’ve heard so far are very interesting and straight Bible knowledge and I am very interested in continuing with your studies, although I am SDA learning and studying the word of God. Go bless you. Thank you very much.
Thank you… I have often struggled with knowing what the difference is between mercy and grace. This explanation is clear and really easy to understand. The LORD has blessed you with an amazing ministry. Hallelujah… Thank you LORD!!
I’m going through a tough time at the moment, having to divorce my husband after 29 years, 27 together and 2 years separated. This was sent by a very good friend and I feel like God was speaking to my heart through these words.
What a blessing for me to be allowed to hear this about Jesus and his birth, Thank You.
Practical knowledge and teaching. Easy to understand and comprehend. “Down to earth chat.” Excellent Berni.
Keep up the good work.
Hi Berni. Spot on bro. You might back that up with the account of Abraham’s wife being desired by the king and how God warned him personally. Excellent presentation. Thanks for all you do and to Jesus for empowering you.
Thank you for this powerful message, man of God. I can recall many times I’ve been stubborn and or selfish in my life even to my own husband. It’s not right, I know it’s not desirous to God and I now longer want to live this way. I’m trusting in the the Lord that he will help me with covetous, greed and other fruit that he tells us not to bare. This was right on time. Thank you for explaining how to address each spirit with meditation as well as prayer.
Thank you so much for the timely message, this has really edified my spirit a lot … I suffer from anxiety a lot. God please help me to remember this always and forgive me for not being being grateful.
Thank you for these words of wisdom today. So needed to read this today! I feel like life is a competition and it is stressful! I love to play sport and my children play sport but it is not always about winning – it’s how the game is played. I get tired of people always competing with me as a Mum, in my workplace, what I wear and even in my church. Looking forward to reading more this week.
I am glad to have Jesus in my life and so privileged. Without Him life truly is and has no meaning. To be in his family reminds me I have significance and that I am so loved. Life has dealt me blows but I am alive because of Him and I will always be grateful
Your article on “, suffering” was extremely motivating and provides self-confidence.
My son has special needs and fears lots/anxiety …this message I think is going to help him . Do you have any more on fear and God helping one through it .
I love the encouragement I feel from every excerpt you guys send my way. It seems like your always meeting me where I need to be.
Just imagine if we new this when we were growing up; what a wonderful world this would be.
Thank you for the timing of this teaching. Today I have an appointment to do lab work for my new physician. Praying for miracles, signs and wonders in each test that I take. Thank God I am 81 years old, God has blessed me with perfect health❤️❤️❤️ Some facial signs that my cholesterol might be higher than normal. Please heal me from the crown of my head to the soles of your my feet. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
Great word. I like the simplicity of saying it like it is. The Holy Spirit is the best helper one can have in this life.
Thank you for always getting to the point and basing it on Scripture. I use several sources in my morning time with the Father but I appreciate yours being so useful .
Ur email is the first thing I read every single day, that can b anytime between 4am and 5:30am……I don’t like getting up at that time but I have no choice. I have to get up to medicate for an incurable kidney disease amongst other things for the best part of fifty years🙄…… Your mail nearly always hits the nail right on the head, I dunno how u do it Bernie but its ALWAYS so helpful to me, I have been getting them for a few years now and they have made me feel wanted, loved, special, amongst other things. Even when I’ve been sooooo close to edge, where I’ve been sitting here in absolute agony looking at all my meds, getting fed up with having to take nearly 200 pills a day and drink 8 ltrs fluid day in day out every single day. Unable to stand, walk, etc etc
I’ve sat here wondering what on earth im here for…….
I’m beginning to realise that I’m here to show my apartment block neighbours that no matter what’s going on in your life, there’s absolutely no reason at all not to show them everything that Jesus does to/for me, love, respect, help when you can. They know that I’m a Christian as they have asked how on earth I cope with things🙂I tell them when I feel brave enough, admittedly I should always say JESUS…….but sometimes and I don’t know why, I say nothing😕😢. I KNOW it’s only thru Him that I’m here and I pray that he strengthens me to always say HIS name first so He always gets the glory He deserves…..sorry its so long but thank you thank you thank you!! I pray that you continue forever bringing His name to the world, God bless you Bernie,
Amen. Thank you for the reminder. We forget the real meaning behind Easter. This year will be a different one because of the virus, we are not allowed to go to church. It’s so sad not to be able to go church and worship together with other believers in Christ but we can take heart because we will overcome this. Appreciating the coming together of believers so much. Thank you for the great work you guys are doing.
This is very true and people need to read this kind of thing to remind them what God has done or will do for them including myself thank you for this.
I’m glad to have this victory, I say it all the time, “I plead the blood” and I know no matter what I’m facing God says He’ll never leave or forsaken me.
I’m facing some challenges right now but I’m trusting in him and holding on to his unchanging hands.
This is a good word at the perfect time. After a bad relationship and a bad decision I feel at rock bottom and as though my soul is in hiding &
in need of waking up as David put it. I have recently discovered the power of meditating on God’s word & will be meditating on thanks to God until all is well again. I thank God for your ministry & the emails you send !
I had been suffering with this very problem when I read this, and felt like I was about to fall apart, but this was exactly what I needed to hear in my current situation. I know God was speaking through you and sending me this message today.
It sounds “dorky” to say but the daily emails, many times, are the highlights of my day. I get so caught up working with people that I forget to take care of myself. When the mail comes I take time to have some time with the Lord. Thank you.
This reading, like all this week is especially pertinent to my life and is reinforcing a Godly perspective on my situation. I’m going through a fought trot as some say. However God is with me and has a plan. Thank you for a daily devotional that speaks straight with the truths of God’s to my heart- it means more than you know. God Bless and keep up the great work.
I do not think God loves us or he has affection for us.
how many people God has disappointed them. How many prayers God has ignored.
I was really someone who loves god Allah, I had patience, I worked hard, I did everything for God to open only one door, unfortunately he completely ignored me along those years.
it’s hard to say, but actually I’d rather ask people than asking my beloved god, In the end you’ll end up finding someone who cares about you and who can help you.
You are an angel Berni. God bless you! “His power, not our strength can help us overcome our sin.” Thanks for reminding.
I am a Christian and I have a lot of time to meditate on God’s Word. I am grateful for you and your ministry. I find it to be biblical and valid. Thanks 😎 Brother
I just picked up my email and all of a sudden this came up and its exactly what i feel it really hit home Thank you
I have struggled with this for a very long time and I thank God that these past months I’ve been praying for unity between me and my siblings. We grew up loving each other until we started working and the cars of this world overtook us. We became selfish and cared more about what God has blessed us with than our love for each other. I went through a rough time in 2015 and none of my siblings came to my rescue. I started questioning if we really belonged to the same parents. I was so angry and slowly developed a hate towards my brother because when he needed help I’ve always been there. I was so darkened by this I stopped talking to him, he asked for help 3 years later and I first helped him and the next time refused to help to give him a taste of his medicine. I’ve also had similar problems with my sister. The Lord started dealing with me on these issues to forgive and stop harboring bitterness, the journey has been awesome and I’ve forgiven both of them..thank you for this sermon. Unforgiveness is a bondage that will keep you away from the blessings of the Lord. I no longer want any part of it. I pray for my whole family in its entirety and I bless them every day. Thank you Lord for freeing me. And thank you for this sermon Berni.
Very good 2 part series. Listening to ‘Out of the Blue’ reminded me of one morning over 10 years ago walking to work in Toronto. Small voice said, ‘slow down’. Fortunately, I did, just Moments later in pouring rain one American pick up truck hit another pushing it around a corner through a cross walk just in front of me.
Fantastically clear and simple discussion of why we give freely into God’s kingdom. After it’s His kingdom that gives us the life we lead. For those that have much, much is expected.
Thank you for all the encouraging words you always send me… everyday I look forward to reading your message.
What I love most is how you relate it to our daily life.
It’s so ease to understand the scriptures in the simplicity of how you explain it.
When I read your article. ” Setting boundaries around your Love” I was really touched and gripped to the heart with the statement you spoke about Jesus love for us. That He laid down His life for us!!!! That brought tears to my eyes!! Oh, that we can have love like Jesus had for each other,,,this would be a better world to live in. Thank you so much for your articles. I enjoy them all so much.
I love Berni Dymet’s perfect timing and delivering God’s message on a regular basis. I get his daily messages and now I dug into a series “Eliminating Stubborn Sin”. Thank you for supplying that for me and us.
I love the knowledge I’m getting from Christianity Works. Thank you so much. I know in my heart that God is using you to reteach me some things in His Word. I’m listening and applying. God bless
Totally agree, thanks for these words of encouragement.
Hi,Berni, good to be here again. I just heard the message, Thank you very much for the wonderful presentation. A much confused subject, but you presented it in a convincing way, thanks again. Waiting for the next part. May God Bless. Philip Ariel
P V Ariel
Wow, what a message! I’ve earlier this afternoon told my wife that we should cut down on expenses because we have to buy another vehicle (due to hail damage – we’ve got one only) and now this assurance. Not wealth but enough. Regards Riaan
Wonderful and Fresh inspiration on a daily basis is exactly what we need to stay positive. I choose Humility over Pride as it always wins Gods favour!! Thanks Berni and Team
Thank you so much for your support and encouragment. Life can get so busy and we can get distracted in it all, and it’s so true, when we drift along with busyness and don’t connect with God (His Word & Presence), we just feel lost (alone). Thank you 🙂
I do often feel alone. You have helped me look at Christ’s crucifixion a different way. I often do think about how he suffered- whipped, bullied, tormented, nails into his hands and feet, hanging and then to have his side pierced. That was horrible. When I sit and truly think about the pain he went through for me, I cry.. I do not think I’m worthy of how he felt and what he went through. God help me to be a better Christian! Thank you, Berni and God bless you this day and always! Happy Easter! He has risen!
Thank you very much for your teachings Appreciate that they are Bible centered teachings. Short and focused.
Thank you so much.I am so much lifted and encouraged by the Word.This helped me alot in tithing and seeing a different view on Tithes and Offering.I will most definetely forward this message.Thank you.GOD BLESS
I would like to thank you for putting it this way, on my phone, I was able to listen to the radio station talking about God and what I wanted to know is very interesting to know that when you talk to God you can hear his heartbeat thank you God be with you
Thanks for Powerful Message on the things that God Hates Proverbs 6:16 . Made me take stock of my own life and repent of ny own errors! I know that God loves me enough to convict me and encourage me to do Good!
I love what you have said about love everyone.. Yes God has called all of us to do just that.
Love the work this ministry is doing for God. There’s such a feeling of genuineness that comes through this ministry. Thanks for giving to the Lord!
Thank you for sharing God’s words with us. I enjoy listening to FRESH everday
via my e-mail. Thank you may our Lord be with you.
Thank you for this fantastic series on stress. I have been bothered about so much and overthinking about the future. It is so good to know God’s word on how we should handle stress. Totally agree with what you have said.
Thank you for this messages they are making me stronger in the Lord each passing day.
Berni, Well done and thank you for sharing this with me and so many others. God has blessed you with, I think, a wonderful way of touching the hearts and minds of young people – and older ones too, like me. I shall pass this on to my niece whose oldest son (16?) is struggling big time with them i.e. in rebellion. I think to share it with my niece and her husband and see if they think that they want to or want me to share it with their son. If he will listen to your talks, I think that he will hopefully see more clearly how to go about growing up and honoring his father and mother so that he might have long life in the land God has given him. I also am of the mind that it will bear a blessing from God to my niece and her husband who will be encouraged in their parenting and also perhaps see more clearly how to go about it. I hope to let you know the good fruits of your your 5 talks as seen in my niece’s family.
Thanks again for getting back to me and sharing this wisdom from our God. Think that I shall look more at what you do and have to say and pass you on to others for their consideration.
Thank you for your FRESH messages especially today’s message entitled.
“All Roads lead to Rome” . Your messages are so clear, to the point, insightful and understandable. Thank God for your gift of being able to hit the nail on the head in such a short space of time.!! Brilliant…..I appreciate all you are doing.
May God continue to Bless your ministry and all that you are doing!
I have made the biggest mistake of my life giving my home and moving in with a man with whom I have already had a negative experience and left…but he went to therapy for 3 years in between though dating and living with other women (yet I found that out after moving in with him)…I was to write a book as I had had many professors of Oxford and Harvard saying I was a writer…but his negativity and control and manipulations and darkness has rendered me virtually helpless…having lost all of my soul…so this message means I will never recover as Adam and Eve…will never find joy again…and makes me want to take my life as it is no longer worth living…
What a brilliant message, as always an inspiration and sound teaching. Thank you to all the team and supporters of Christianityworks.
Thank you, that is just what I needed to hear. Just went through major surgery back in April. Now recuperating the storms and bills are there. I am glad I can put my faith in Christ.
Right on target with the encouragement and sound teaching I need to hear. THANK YOU,for your integrity,godly wisdom, and transparency. God be with you, and bless you for what you have done.
Hi Berni, Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for your web site, teaching and this series on the Church. This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me! I’ve been having some challenges over the past little while with my Church and your teaching is giving me some real food for thought, but more importantly, knowledge and direction for prayer. Thank you Berni, be encouraged and continue to walk in God’s work.Kind regards, Simon Field
We liked this very much.

Proverbs 4:23 is the perfect guide for me this day. Satan has sent his attack in the most cruel way on my heart this day. Please pray for my son Tony, his son Corey, and Corey’s mother Robyn. Thank you!
Thank you for the message today, I need to be very careful on what my mind consume every day. It’s better to start my day with God’s Word to renew my mind.
I love everything about what you are saying to me about the lord and his words thank you so much for your prayers and kind words my sister or brother in Jesus christ name Amen.
Wow Berni that one’s intense and hits the nail right in the head…. stops you in your tracks!
Going through an unwanted divorce as I am, the burden of the last year has weighed heavily. As I drove familiar roads on the way back from yet another court hearing just for a brief moment the burden was lifted completely and all was well. I subsequently came across this message “The time is coming”. Whether that brief but amazing lifting of the burden was a sign from the Lord I cannot be definite but I am trusting that the “floodgate of blessing” is on its way.
Absolutely love the videos and word! Always always speaks to me on what I’m feeling that day!
Thankyou sssooooo much for that. You have described my Jesus and my experience with Him. His love is sssoooo big there is always more. Just when you thing you know it, He surprises us with more and with different areas that need to be touched by His love. I pray that those who still yet don’t understand that the nasty things that have happened in their lives are not His doing but the enemy and Jesus is longing to heal them and give them the victory over all of it. That can’t happen without His love. I was wondering are you going to make this series into a booklet. I think that would be awesome! Thankyou again, this has touched me deeply.
Thank you so much I love it. It’s of great help to me. I look forward to my daily reading.
Wonderful! This is the help I have needed! I’ve reached the glorious age of 70 and had been feeling oh so tired. Not hugely overweight but cholesterol high, blood pressure ok but wanted to
take off some weight and feel more energetic. Was getting breathless on brisk walking and going up hills! But, praise the Lord, for this wonderfully timely help! I really enjoy your broadcast and was not expecting this particular series but all we need for our daily living is to receive such timely help from
our brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you brother! The time
to start exercising not only our body but also our spirit is NOW!
I love listening to your different perspective broadcast. I plan my ride to work around it! Last week I was running late and I think you were talking about a personality type that is thinking so much that they can get overwhelmed with the details, end up not being able to make decisions. I think it was some type of leader but I’m not sure. Does that sound familiar? I’m not sure which day it was, I think it was late in the week. But I don’t think it was teacher. I didn’t get to it online last week and heard you say today that we can go back and hear last week’s programs, which is great, but I’m not sure which day is was. Any idea?
Thank you so very much for your ministry.
I particularly slur it right now when I’m needing encouragement to get through a difficult time.
It feels wonderfully secure to know that you are there.
We are so blessed to be able to fellowship on our phones in this way.
Wow today I wrote down all the wrong turns I have made and then confessed to God that I am lost and that I need his son Jesus to help me find my way back. That’s so simple (although it has taken me a while to find this talk and get it into my heart and head.) I need Jesus, not doing things just in my own strength but in His. It will be exciting to see where home is.
Getting the fresh devotional in my email is a choice that I don’t regret because it’s like an archive where I can look up a certain message and re-read it. These devotionals bless my life and as is with the word of God, I gain more wisdom and build my understanding. God bless you
So encouraging to hear this today. Its been a looong time of trusting God after twenty years of waiting for a breakthrough in our family life. Glad to be reminded today that listening for God’s Voice in the midst of the journey and not giving up is key. The Lord bless you.
I came here knowing that my life is not running, but I was running from life.
This message has helped me focus. I have been searching, sometimes worried, sometimes scared of the future.
In fact I did not see a future if I am honest. I love the film, I could tell the honesty in the presenter.
I understand when he spoke about being in a room and not feeling loved.
After watching and nodding, I am given hope.
I have messed so many relationships up, I have formed some good ones.
The best relationship I can have is with God.
Thank you so much. I believe God sent me here 🙂 God bless you.
I have so appreciated how balanced this teaching is. It is also really challenging to our living for Jesus. Through the difficulties financial and otherwise I have personally found what Rick is saying to be the biblical idea of how we use our money and where it shows our heart to be absolutely correct. When we finally come to the realisation that God ultimately is our security in every area of our lives, we are able to see him in His unfailing love and faithfulness meet us and sustain us.
Thank you so much for your ministry.
The daily fresh has opened my eyes and my understanding of my faith in God.
Thank you God for helping me in my difficulties.
I know you have already opened up my door and lead me to the right paths. Amen
Thank you for the God Word about doing things politically incorrect and doing things God’s way not man’s way. Bless you and keep up God’s word and work.
Kind Regards and many blessings,
Together we can

Thank you for this amazing thought and I look forward to read more about you and thank you for caring.
I love hearing or reading your messages in the morning. They calm my fears and anxiety if I have an uncertain day ahead.
All my days are uncertain since I work in an eye clinic. Either talking to the public or seeing them face to face.
God’s messages remind me of who I am in Christ. I can do all things through Christ.
Thank you for your messages every day.
Thanks be to God ! for people who were inspired to write these appropriate words from a truly believing heart , not a shadow of doubt . So encouraging to all believers in Jesus Christ ! Son of God.
Thanks Henry .
I look forward to Christianityworks every morning. Each daily message is so helpful. I am so grateful for this ministry.
I love waking up & reading Berni Dymet’s devotion daily. I truly enjoy his fresh outlook on familiar passages. Then I forward it to others who may be struggling with their faith or need an encouraging word that God’s got this & turns any mess we’re in to a blessing for us & uses it to Glorify His Name. God bless
Thanks so much for this powerful messages, they are really changing my life. Am a new person now.
I struggle to know what our Father wants me to do at the moment. I pray, I ask I read His word and I am still unsure of what He wants me to do. My journey is really only a couple of years old,but I want to trust and believe for the impossible. Thank you Berni for your wonderful devotions.
Hi Berni, of all the “big Christians” I connect to for encouragement and spurring on in my faltering struggle forward with God (people like John Piper and Ravi Zacharias) I appreciate you tremendously if not more. Down to earth, sincere, encouraging and unwavering and speaking the truth. I simply love you.
I am looking forward to reading these books.
I really enjoy and am encouraged by these messages. I spend a lot of time in bed because of an accident I once had. So its GREAT to have the time to read and contemplate the content here…and then pass em on 😊. Thankyou for them.
I really liked your first email. Honor everyone! Hard to do, but that’s His command! Lord help me to do as you require.
Beautiful. This family is so adorable and a very good model for the family of the world situation this days.
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful family story. So beautiful.
Hi good morning, this is Jay amburn from Reidsville NC.
I enjoy looking at the devotional from God’s word each and every day send me a email.
Thanks have a good evening
Blessings! I’m so blessed to listen & learn biblical truths with encouraging commentaries. God bless you & God’s ministry!
Thank you for explaining the verse to me it’s exactly how I feel at times especially when I have prayed and prayed but nothing happens. Thanks for encouraging me.
I enjoy all of your articles and scriptures. Thank you for doing all of this. God bless you.
This is very good! I don’t know why we, who are lumps of clay that need a lot of time on the Potter’s Wheel, have such a large ego and find forgiveness so hard! It certainly is the cancer of our souls, and is a very serious offense, because the Lord says that if we don’t forgive others, He cannot forgive us. Thank you!
Very enlightening message. I was very encouraged by this Word! I’m crying out to God for my precious family. I want them back, back worshipping Jesus, praying with me and joining me on Sunday to go to Church. Thank you soooooooh much.
These messeges always speak to me at the right time what ever I’m going through. “Thank You Father for speaking through Berni our brother, in Christ’s name, AMEN.”
Your message of comfort from
Psalm 119; 50 surely comforted
Me. On the 10th 0f March I lost
my first cousin who was dear
and great help to me. On the
9th of May, 2019 I was seriously
sick. Three times I was hospitalised
in May. While at the hospital
my nephew died. Your message
from Psalm 119; 50 gave me hope.

Thank you for the message Pastor Berni, I agree, we need the power of the Holy Spirit to make an impact in the lives of people around us and we can do amazing things for Jesus.
May the Lord bless your ministry more.
And maybe add this question “What actually did you think Jesus – God incarnate – died for?
Many of us – me included once upon a time – find it hard to accept the extent of His grace. Everything for nothing. But the more we ponder, the more we can see that’s God’s character . Our God does not believe in half measures. Thank you, Bernie for saying it as it is, no holds barred.
Just listened to fresh for today after getting in from seeing my frail elderly mother in her care home. That’s when you realise how God’s timing is perfect. Family! Perfect. Thank you for your words every day, “Fresh” every day.
Thanks for the word of encouragement this is exactly some of the issues going on in our local church – I sure appreciate hearing that it happens throughout the “house”…keep up the good work.
Hello, I’m not much of a reader but I do love to listen to the audio files. I actually download and WhatsApp them to my contacts. Thank you for being obedient to God and sharing his word. Bless you. Regards
Your messages are so uplifting and inspirational!
They really hit home in my heart because as a young man living in Africa and being surrounded by poverty / mediocrity and witchcraft, I find a bedrock and additional strength to show and declare the gospel of the kingdom around!
If you ever plan to plant a church in West Africa, I am your man. May the God of peace bless and uphold you as well as your family and your team.

Bernie, it is a funny thing how we treat each other. Yes, we do care to remember those who gave their lives for us , and yet, strange as it seems, we are also quick to shoot our own wounded. Keep sharing Fresh 4U Today messages with us and I hope that as the word gets to many others , the love of Christ will implore people to serve one another rather than to judge them for their errors.
thanks for this. this is timely. both the passage and the principle. God bless you and your team and the ministry that you do!
I have been so worried that bad things will happen if I did not do the right thing, think the right way etc and that I would be to blame. I mean its all about choices right and if I make the wrong choices I am responsible for the consequences. I forgot about unconditional love and that the only thing that matters is faith expressed in love. Thanks for reminding me that his love for me never changes and that I have the freedom to make mistakes and to fail but I am always forgiven. My righteousness is secure in what Jesus did not in anything I can do. If I have negative circumstances in my life I do not have to blame myself anymore. Jesus said that there is no more condemnation for those in Christ.
I love fresh, it’s a simple way for me to get a dose on God’s word daily.
Berni focuses on 1 verse and theme a day making it easy to dwell on that word all day lone.
I pray you continue to reach many people. God richly bless you.
I very much enjoy the short video clips. I can listen while preparing for the morning or during the day when I have lost my glasses. LOL. very helpful and something to think about during my day. !
I don’t know how it works, praying for your enemies, but I know that it does. I also didn’t like a lady I worked with but I felt the LORD saying to me, you can’t change her so pray that you may change towards her and we have been friends for ages. I never thought I could like this lady but the LORD made it possible, thank you LORD. Weeks later I received a txt from her saying,”I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthen me.” She said “See, I do know some bible verses and that lady was a non believer. It’s amazing what the LORD can do, even if you don’t do much but admit you know Jesus. Thank you so much LORD. Bless you LORD for Berni. Amen.
Thank you very much for the Fresh Word!!!! I love to read them and look forward to it every morning!!! Thank you again for sharing the Word of God and his Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Thank you so much for these gems of wisdom.
I am learning so much through all this great teaching. May God continue to bless you as you continue to bless others (-:
I love these daily snippets of wisdom. They help me be mindful of Jesus without overwhelming me. They’re just enough to ponder during the day. Thank you all for this free ministry. God bless you.
I thank God for you and your ministry I have Grew so much since I have been reading every day so thank you for your words of encouragement may God keep you and blessed 🙏🙌 👏❤️ your family , and ministry in the name of Jesus Christ amen.
Am really blessed with these messages and would like to get more of them to straighten my Christian life. Thank you
Touching and inspirational….. dwelling in the glory of God has put the world under my feet..I used to desire the world but ever since I gave my life back to the source of salvation Jesus Christ, My life has never been the same again.,…He really came to give life and life more abundantly.
I love your program every morning on my radio. You message is such an encouragement to me. Thank you. Thank you. So much. May God continue to bless this ministry and may you just grow from strength. Im so sorry for not being able to attend your bŕeakfast with friends talk.
Thank you so much, this has been so helpful. I’ve been thinking a lot about this recently – ‘worry is sin’ yes! Thank you for such practical advice and such a clear understanding of how we overcome these with God.
Great reminder! I’ve had storms in the past and I’m going through one now. I’d like to think I’d go with Peter ( but not look down!!!) but would value prayer for courage to stick it out and go with Jesus. Thankyou for these daily readings which remind us time and again to KEEP OUR EYES ON JESUS.Crystal
I can meditate this verse am a single dad with three kids, my wife move out 6 months ago now, it’s hard but I have faith, God can restore my relationship. Thanks you please send me a daily devotion
Firstly, I’ve wanted so deeply to be able to give to your generous site as I’ve ordered 4 booklets from you and have found them truly helpful. This latest one, “The Road to Contentment” really hit me hard. I’m in the 2 to 4 number of being contented with my life. I’ve taken over a small church home group to try to get my life back on track and lead a better Christian life pleasing to God. I struggle so much with having to pay bills as my wife works and I’m on a Disability Pension and it doesn’t leave much to even pay my chemist bill or petrol for my car. I try to work and earn just a bit extra but it’s just not getting there to be enough. I know God will give us our needs and not our wants, but it gets so damned hard to make ends meet and while praising God in the mean time. Thanks for your booklets and your website, it does help to listen to someone that cares. GB. Kev.
Thank you so much for keeping me on the right path, to hear God’s word and blessing every day as I struggle to get through another day, week, month and year.
Bernie you are a pillar of strength to me and I love hearing your voice giving me the next daily devotional, may God bless you and all the people behind the scenes we don’t get to see.
Merry Christmas and see you in the new year afresh in Jesus Christ. X 🙂
I love Christianityworks! I read it every day & I thank God for it. It’s what I have been looking for. I can apply it to my life & that’s what matters.
I heard one of your teaching on our national christian radio broadcaster ‘Radio Pulpit’ and am intrigued with the manner of how you bring the message of the gospel across to listeners.
Thanks for the commentary and advice. Hard to find something relevant these days. Had dabbled in porn before became a Christian, and before marriage. Then after 2 years of struggle came clean. But I am still tempted. Thankfully without sinning so far…. Finding fellow Christians to help with accountability is easier said than done. Thanks again R
I am struggling with that stress now in several different ways, looking for work included. I have worked myself into a frenzy and exhaustion and now, all it seems I can do is just stop and rest. It is so hard waiting on the Lord, but I do hear Him say, ‘Trust me’.
Learn something every time I listen to these podcasts. Thank you Berni for sharing God’s love 🙏
