April 30, 2015. Rest your mind today. There are too many things running through your mind at once. Stop the train and pull onto a side rail for a shutdown. The Lord says, “”Come away by yourself to a secluded place and rest a while.” You can have more than one secluded place, one within your home, another remote from everything. There is much to be learned from a little solitude. See yourself sweeping your mind clean of all things not placed there by Me. Get filled with the Holy Spirit. Let God delights in you.
Mark 6:31-32 (NASB) “And He *said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.) They went away in the boat to a secluded place by themselves.” Ras Robinson
April 30, 2015. Blessings in abundance are coming your way. You have gone through a hard time. I know that. You know that and so do many others . It’s about to change. At first this is going to be hard to believe. You won’t know what to say or what to do. That’s okay. Don’t try to say or do anything. You have had a hard time believing anything good will come your way. You know you don’t deserve it. I love you and see your heart. You will soon share My goodness.
1 Corinthians 1:9 (AMP) “God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” Bev Robinson
April 30, 2015.Your perseverance is about to reap great rewards for you. You have been very persistent in some significant areas of your life. Some would see you as having doggedness. Much like that of a bulldog, you have had the tenacity to hang on when others gave up. I applaud you for your determination, for continuing to believe what you know is deep within your heart. Your mindset is similar to the first Apostles. It was their determination, accompanied by My Spirit which changed the world. Keep putting action with your faith.
James 5:11 (NIV) “As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” Kevin Robinson
April 29, 2015.Last Monday I drove through two of the heaviest rain storms I have ever experienced. Sheets of rain were repeatedly slammed against my car. I wondered if I was in a tornado. But God got me through! God is preparing believers with faith to brace themselves and prepare for biblical end-times drama. Earthquakes are multiplying. Just this week Nepal had more than 4,000 reported deaths from a major earthquake. Some estimates are that the total may reach 8,000. A pastor we know in Nepal says God has spared him, his church and family. Purify your heart and clean your hands. Be prepared.
Colossians 3:12-13 (NASB77) “And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.” Ras Robinson
April 29, 2015. Something is on your heart that no one knows about. It has been there for a long time. You aren’t sure when you are to share it or even if you are to share it. You have at times wondered if it is something that originated with Me or if it is something you thought up on your own. What should you do? Beloved, tell Me. I know what’s there, but you need light shown upon what’s there. Now trust Me completely, knowing I will bring about what’s best.
Psalm 37:3-5 (NASB) “Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Bev Robinson
April 29, 2015. Different styles of praise music have appealed to Christians throughout their new life in Christ. Some enjoy rap, others country, or gospel, or heavy metal or hymns. Different music is attractive to the diverse personalities of My people. Just because you don’t like what others like, don’t allow yourself to fall into judgment. What others enjoy and what appeals to them is not important. I AM the one who is being praised. This is not about you. Rejoice that I AM being praised and worshiped through different kinds of music.
Colossians 3:16 (NLT) “Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.” Kevin Robinson
April 28, 2015. Today, rejoice in the Lord and be gentle to everyone. Put on your God-given covering of righteousness. Show gentleness and kindness all day. I will bring some people across your path this day. Each will have a need you can meet if you would be like Jesus. Your witness is not affected by your feelings. It comes from deeper inside you at your spirit level. Down there, you have been made brand new. Nothing is impossible and everything is possible. So, put the goodness and sanctity of who you really are forward. Rejoice and be gentle today.
hilippians 4:4-5 (NASB) “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.” Ras Robinson
April 28, 2015. The right direction is laid out before you. You sought Me, heard Me and obeyed Me. This is the reason you are headed in the right direction. Doesn’t it feel good? Yes I know it does. See how simple I’ve made it. I know this way isn’t always easy but when you seek Me and obey My promptings it all falls together and in place. My way becomes your way and your way becomes My way. We’re walking together with the same purpose in unity. Much will be accomplished.
Proverbs 4:11-12 (AMP) “I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom [which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]; I have led you in paths of uprightness. When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble.” Bev Robinson
April 28, 2015.Be very vigilant in working with delicate matters. Too often you have been quick in rushing to judgment when difficulties and errors have arisen. Expectations are good, but don’t overreact when things don’t perform as you expected. Be diligent in keeping your motives pure and right. Sometimes danger is lurking, but most of the time it is not. Look for the positives in every situation you deal with. Be careful not to over analyze things. Embrace the fact that I am in control. Make wise choices.
Ephesians 5:15-17 (ERV) “So be very careful how you live. Live wisely, not like fools. I mean that you should use every opportunity you have for doing good, because these are evil times. So don’t be foolish with your lives, but learn what the Lord wants you to do.” Kevin Robinson
April 27, 2015. You have been granted the right, along beside Jesus, to become a son (or daughter) of God. It comes to you because God has chosen you to be intimate with Him. Through that intimacy, He trusts and commissions you to represent Him in this life. You are the expression of Himself. Your love is really His love; your power is really His power. You are a perfect representation of Jesus because of His covering of righteousness displayed through you. Never underestimate His transformation within you. Go now and walk in His steps.
Hebrews 5:8 (NASB) “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.” Ras Robinson
April 27, 2015. Be at peace. You have done the best you can do. You are rethinking what happened and that is not all bad. But after thinking it over again, you still think you did the right thing. Now leave it. Events changed in the middle of what was happening, but you still did the right thing. You can’t help it that changes occurred. Don’t allow yourself to become fearful or agitated. You prayed for wisdom ahead of time and thanked Me for the decision you made. Now Beloved, be at peace.
John 14:27 (AMP)” Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” Bev Robinson
April 27, 2015.Being overwhelmed can be debilitating. Don’t allow the enemy of your soul, Satan, to come into your life wreaking havoc. Stand strong and keep on standing. Constantly declare My blood to Satan’s face. By no means does this mean you are to mock him; it is knowing whose you are and declaring My victory no matter what likelihoods remain. Praise Me continually in the midst of everything. Praising Me frustrates Satan immensely because he once had power in that arena. Rise up, speaking with confidence established within Me.
Isaiah 63:7 (ESV) “I will recount the steadfast love of the Lord, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has granted us, and the great goodness to the house of Israel that he has granted them according to his compassion, according to the abundance of his steadfast love.” Kevin Robinson
April 25, 2015. You will discover in deep and meaningful ways what it takes for leaders to live an exciting and productive life. Paul instructed Titus how to choose, disciple and appoint elders in new churches. His core instruction to them is also solid for today’s believers. Concentrate on keeping your heart pure. Your pure heart will open your eyes to see the purity in others. Purity is the standard for you and for others God sends. Imagine a new church full of members who have pure hearts who can impart to their members.
itus 1:15-16 (NLT) “Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted. Such people claim they know God, but they deny him by the way they live. They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good.” Ras Robinson
April 25, 2015. Your enemy Satan eagerly looks for a crack in your armor. You are on guard during the day so he has turned to the night. Unload all that is in your mind and refill it with My word, thankfulness, and praise, then watch him scurry away. Until the day you meet Me face to face, he will be trying to find an entrance to wreak havoc. But I have set a shield about you. No need to worry. Keep on trusting Me with praise and thanksgiving. I have you covered.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”Bev Robinson
April 25, 2015.Can you make the decision within yourself to join with others in their time of need? There is tremendous power which comes forth when two or more people agree on a certain issue in My name. When you agree with others, an inner strength rises up within all parties involved. When humility enters the equation My grace is sufficient to cover anything that arises . This isn’t a “name it, claim it” mindset, it is knowing I AM present and I bring My perfect peace with Me.
Matthew 18:19-20 (NASB) “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.” Kevin Robinson
April 24, 2015. God does not, and by His very nature cannot, lie. This means that what God has promised and said concerning you is forever true and can never be changed. He cannot lie, nor should you. Like Paul the Apostle, you have been given a call to proclaim faith to those God puts before you. Through you, God teaches and reveals eternal life. Your testimony and faith is a powerful witness of God at work in a human life. Therefore, you are a truth bearer to those who need God. Never underestimate the effect you have on others!
Titus 1:1-2 (NLT) “This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God-who does not lie-promised them before the world began.” Ras Robinson
April 24, 2015. That you are waiting patiently is very good. It has been good in the past for you to stay in a peaceful frame of mind as you waited. You’ve not gone ahead as your flesh wanted. Now blessings will pour in. Not at a breakneck speed, but at just the speed your needs and wants desire. I know at times it has not been easy. But at other times it was strangely pleasant. This has been because of your obedience. You are maturing in faith and actions. Now Beloved, enjoy My blessings.
Isaiah 30:18 (AMP) “And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!” Bev Robinson
April 24, 2015. Take a moment to slow down. Your mind has been running non-stop for a while now. You are trying to process some recent news you received and you feel as though you are getting a bit batty. Know that I understand exactly where you are. The hullabaloo you are experiencing is no surprise to Me. The apprehension is real. Can you step back from your situation and acknowledge all that I am doing in your midst. Trust Me with your cares. Learn to lay your burdens at My feet.
Philippians 4:6 (NLT) “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Kevin Robinson
April 23, 2015. Few things are as gratifying to a parent as their children growing up to live in wisdom. We long to hear and see our children speaking what is right because we have taught them to tell the truth, that lying is not acceptable. If the heart of your offspring is turning from foolishness to wisdom, all is well in the soul of their parents. What could please the heart more than to hear your offspring speaking what is right. Sweet and precious is fruit from the righteousness of godly parents.
Proverbs 23:15-16 (NASB) “My son, if your heart is wise, My own heart also will be glad; and my inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak what is right.” Ras Robinson
April 23, 2015. Two choices are before you. Right now it makes no difference to you as to which one you chose, but as you investigate it will make a difference. It definitely makes a difference to some of the others involved. Don’t rush the final decision. Investigate them both thoroughly. Don’t allow your emotions to get in control. Now when this is done lay both of these choices before Me. I have the right decision for you, one that will be suitable and advantageous for years to come. Trust totally in Me.
Psalm 18:30 (AMP) “As for God, His way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him.” Bev Robinson
April 23, 2015. Based on some of your current and past experiences, there are some people, places, and things you just cannot entertain anymore. Presently, there are some things which are definitely harmful to your health. You have asked Me for wisdom and now is the time to put your faith into action. For your complete strength to come to fruition, you need to refuse to allow yourself to be subject to any excessive burdens. You are a mature individual. It is time to make some firm but necessary decisions.
Romans 15:13 (NLT) “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Kevin Robinson
April 22, 2015. There is some uncertainty ahead. This is not a harbinger to create fearfulness . Perfect love casts out all fear. You have been wise and timely to embrace the Scripture that says, “fear not, believe only.” You will cross a bridge to arrive at a new reality. What will appear will look to others as weakness. But in actuality this process will be the opening of a curtain to a world beyond your most positive expectations. Almost everything will take on a new meaning and significance. There will come a time when uncertainty will become an ocean of eternal peace.
Luke 8:50-51 (KJV) “But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.” Ras Robinson
April 22, 2015. The thoughts that have mostly been coursing through you mind are about things that will benefit or meet your needs. Beloved, these thoughts are close to being obsessive . Has that brought you happiness and contentment? No. You know it hasn’t. Try filling your mind with thoughts of how you can help others. Ask Me what you can do to make others happy. Get your mind primarily on others. Think about the things you can do to bring a smile to someone. Those thoughts and actions make you happy. Try it.
Matthew 7:12 (MSG) “Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God’s Law and Prophets and this is what you get.” Bev Robinson
April 22, 2015.It appears you keep going around and around in circles. You aren’t sure exactly where or when your next moves will occur. You are at a critical point in decision making. You have asked others for counsel again and again, and your searches for answers never seem to cease. The truth is, people are giving you their best response based on their situations and what has worked for them. They mean well, but your circumstances are different. Ask for and receive counsel from Me. My answers are what you need.
John 14:26 (NLT) “But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative-that is, the Holy Spirit-he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” Kevin Robinson
April 21, 2015.After repentance there is great reward. You are to learn and know the kindness and goodness of God. He rewards you with success and prosperity. Instead of retaliating against you because of your sin, He welcomes you back with success and prosperity. He honors you rather than rebuking you. Your request for a long and good life is granted in a manner that assures your life will stretch on forever. He makes of you an example of His grace and mercy. Your resultant praises pile up more honors to Him.
Psalm 21:3-4 (NLT) “You welcomed him back with success and prosperity. You placed a crown of finest gold on his head. He asked you to preserve his life, and you granted his request. The days of his life stretch on forever.” Ras Robinson
April 21, 2015. At a distance you see something coming. You don’t know whether it is good or bad. And you think you need to prepare yourself. Always expect the best, but prepare for the worse. This is not a lack of faith, because you are expecting the best. Always expect the best. Never let your mind slip into reverse expecting the worst. Keep your heart pure before Me. I know you miss the mark from time to time. Tell Me. I don’t condemn; I cleanse. Keep our relationship the highest priority in life.
Hebrews 11:6 (NASB) “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”Bev Robinson
April 21, 2015.Do everything within your power to promote unity and harmony in My kingdom. Within the Trinity, there is exacting unity among us. We are all comfortable in what was established in and through God the Father. Each of us plays a significant and vital role in His plan. We are very unique in our natures, but we move according to what the Father says. So with you, it would serve you well to do exactly what My Heavenly Father instructs. Do everything to glorify My Father.
John 5:19-20 (MSG) “So Jesus explained himself at length. “I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does. The Father loves the Son and includes him in everything he is doing.” Kevin Robinson
April 20, 2015.Storms come and go but Jesus’ remains forever, storm or no storm. Yesterday evening, a strong wind and rain storm suddenly came. The winds accompanying that storm brought gusts up to 70 miles per hour. It was a little scary. The storm dissipated after a while but left a good steady rain we so needed. When storms come, and they always do, God’s love keeps you safe and without fear. His love is steady as a rock that does not move with circumstances. No person loves you like Jesus. Hide yourself in Him.
Psalm 18:1-2 (NLT) “I love you, LORD; you are my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.” Ras Robinson
April 20, 2015. Prepare yourself. Change is coming. It’s a good change. There will be a download of faith that will surprise others and even you. It will be so strong that nothing will dissuade you from the blessings that are on the way. You won’t have to strain or work hard to receive them. Faith will just come, because you have been hearing things in your spirit and have been in My word for a long time. That has been preparation. Beloved, you will experience some things for which you have longed.
Matthew 13:16-17 (ESV) “But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.” Bev Robinson
April 20, 2015. You are fruit of God the Creator. With words that are just, I created everything that was, and is and is to come. Since you are created in My image, imagine what your world will look like and be like by your utterances. Power, wonder working power, is within your heart which I have created. Allow yourself to speak positively about circumstances whether good or bad. I speak love, life and liberty. They are yours for the taking. Having received freely from Me, do unto others in like manner.
Luke 6:45 (AMP) “The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.” Kevin Robinson
April 18, 2015. The enemy of your soul has sifted you. Your spiritual covering was manipulative and controlling. What you thought was love was in reality a trap to sideline and set you aside. This enemy attracted some of your friends and indoctrinated them into thinking you were the problem. They set you aside. But God gloriously delivered you from their mighty forces that were too great for you. Now you are in a broad, loving and victorious place. God did it all. What the enemy meant for evil God intervened and blessed.
Psalm 18:17-19 (NASB) “He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me.”Ras Robinson
April 18, 2015. I know forgiveness involves your feelings. Your feelings are hurt because of what was said and happened. And I also know it feels good to be angry or revengeful toward those who hurt you. These kinds of feelings will end destructively. The feelings which are beneficial to you are the ones you have from being obedient. I say to you make the choice of forgiveness. Every time you think of what happened chose to forgive, regardless of your feelings. Doing this obediently to My word results in good feelings.
Matthew 18:21-22 (MSG) “At that point Peter got up the nerve to ask, “Master, how many times do I forgive a brother or sister who hurts me? Seven?” Jesus replied, “Seven! Hardly. Try seventy times seven.” Bev Robinson
April 18, 2015.Understand this, you are a role model whether you like it or not. People of all sorts are watching your every move. They pay close attention to the words you say and the mannerisms you display on a daily basis. Consistently monitor yourself. The Holy Spirit is like a check valve in your life. He gently reminds you in your spirit about doing what is right or wrong according to His nature. Be about being holy as I am Holy. Yielding to My ways is full of righteousness and decency.
Psalm 84:11 (NLT) “For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.” Kevin Robinson
April 17, 2015. A beautiful painting hangs on my office wall directly in front of me. It depicts in great detail the right eye with eye lashes and brow. For months I have looked at this picture thinking it to be the eye of the Lord upon me. I felt it was for me to be ever aware of godly living. But now, the Lord is telling me I am the apple of His eye and He will do anything to protect and guide me. It is about my value to Him just as I am.
Psalm 17:8 (NASB) “Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings.” Ras Robinson
April 17, 2015. What is happening with you? Tell Me. Tell Me like I am the most trusted friend you have ever had, because I am. I can help. Sometimes you think and feel like you’re all alone. I know. I too at times felt alone. There was no one on earth who understood all that was happening with Me. I have experienced and know what you are feeling. I know how to help. Our Father has sent someone just like Me to comfort and instruct. He can tell you what to do.
John 14:16 (AMP) “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever–” Bev Robinson
April 17, 2015. Okay, here we go again. How many times must I perform miracles, healings, signs and wonders, or show abundant provision for you to understand My strength already within you. Which is more powerful, your short-sighted circumstances or My authority living within you? I demonstrated the power of My words during the midst of a storm to you. Rebuke the storms amongst you as I did. Again, how many thousands did I feed on the hillside? Keep your eyes fixed on Me and believe. Let your faith be stronger than ever before.
Matthew 14:30-32 (ESV) “But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.” Kevin Robinson
April 16, 2015. Your promise, if you can believe it, is that you will have a long and good life. God’s grace is abundant to bless and extend your life and make it good for you and for those who know you. A long and good life was promised Abraham. He is our spiritual father and thus we can claim his inheritance. Ask the Holy Spirit if that promise to Abraham can be yours. I have done so and God has said yes. Now I am working in grace and obedience as did Abraham who lived the promise made to you and me.
Proverbs 9:10-11 (NLT) “Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.” Ras Robinson
April 16, 2015. I have nothing but goodness and blessings ahead for you. Yes, life is hard at times, but keep your mind on goodness and blessings. It would astound you if you knew it all. The way there is almost too simple to understand. Keep your heart pure before Me. Tell Me when you have done or even thought something that is not according to My ways. Then fill your mind full of good expectations and your mouth full of thanksgiving. Reach out and help others. Now watch for many abundant blessings.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV) “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” Bev Robinson
April 16, 2015. Remaining satisfied is something you can experience on a continual basis. Contentment is a choice you can know every day. Would you like having fulfillment which keeps on going and going? Begin by being grateful for what I have given you. Your soulish nature is held together through wanting more and more. Establish within yourself the practice of walking by the spirit to attain happiness and maintaining delight. It is your decision to find the state of satisfaction. Small steps of thankfulness lead to bigger and bigger ones.
1 Timothy 6:6-7 (AMP) “[And it is, indeed, a source of immense profit, for] godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a sense of [d]inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and obviously we cannot take anything out of the world;” Kevin Robinson
April 15, 2015. Your leaders need encouragement. You benefit from their leadership and will benefit more from their favor and blessings. Pray for them, intercede for them and their families. Say good things about them and to them. They have good in mind for you. Even though sometimes it might not seem like they do. Just wait and see the outcome and then you will know. For now, expect good things to flow from them. It is a God thing. Further, it is an example of how God wants His kingdom to operate.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” Ras Robinson
April 15, 2015. It seems like a minor thing not submitting to authority. But you have no idea what a problem it causes when you don’t. A chain reaction starts that affects others and events that will take much time to reverse or correct. To many people submission to authority brings thoughts of bondage, but quite the contrary is true. Submission evokes freedom and peace. Events fall into place and blessings abound. If your authority is ungodly, of course you don’t’ submit. Just because you aren’t in agreement doesn’t mean it’s ungodly. Seek Me.
Romans 13:1-2 (NASB) “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.” Bev Robinson
April 15, 2015. You are noted as one who can be counted on. You have such honorable traits when it comes to serving Me and others. In the process, you have become almost completely exhausted. Though you find immense amounts of joy in helping others, you have difficulty asking for and receiving help for yourself. Be assured that there are more than enough well qualified bodies to assist with the needs of people as well as you can. Lay down your pride and allow others to join in the fun.
Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV) “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Kevin Robinson
April 14, 2015. You are not just anybody in the sight of the Lord. You are special and He has been preparing you for this very hour. You were chosen by God to be living now. You are His messenger of the Good News. Be determined to learn what you believe about God. Knowledge is strength. You must have accurate and compelling answers for those who do not believe and also for those who do believe but are testing you to find out how you defend your faith. See yourself as a guardian of the Kingdom, one who believes and defends it. Make Jesus shine!
Titus 1:9 (NLT) “He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.” Ras Robinson
April 14, 2015. There are many powerful things I have for you. I have planned them since before you were born. It would astound you now if you knew them all. You are moving in the right direction of letting go and forgiving past things that happened, but there is still a vestige of events you need to let go. One of the reasons you are holding on is that you have such a good memory for past happenings. I gave you that for another reason, a great reason. Forgive it all.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NASB) ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” Bev Robinson
April 14, 2015. From where does your hope come? Is it found in your possessions? Is it placed in relationships with individuals or groups? Over time, what has been the constant factor which remains again and again? When will you fully believe the promises I have given you? Open your eyes to see Me. Ask Me to peel back layers of doubt that cover your vision. True victory is something you can experience every day. In which domain will you place your trust, the seen or the unseen? Rely on Me.
Job 11:18 (NASB) “”Then you would trust, because there is hope; And you would look around and rest securely.” Kevin Robinson
April 13, 2015. You have sown well, choosing the most fertile ground available. Now your crop is beginning to ripen and some of your crop is ready to harvest. I say unto you rejoice in this current and coming season of plenty and overflow. You have been given much and now much return is expected. Your seed has been multiplied. You are rich in righteousness so that you sow with a view towards increases in the fruits of your righteousness. These fruits are for manifesting goodness, kindness and charity. Rejoice in these harvests. You made Me happy.
2 Corinthians 9:10 (AMP) “And [God] Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your [resources for] sowing and increase the fruits of your righteousness [which manifests itself in active goodness, kindness, and charity].” Ras Robinson
April 13, 2015. There are things you’re practicing now that you really don’t want. These undesirables are displacing what you really want. Every time the undesirables cry out to you, turn a deaf ear. Instead of listening to them, listen to Me and think of what you really want to be and do. These things may seem out of reach now. Without Me they are, but with Me all things are possible. Start practicing in your mind the things you desire. But also practice them in reality here and now. Good desires will soon bear fruit and come into being.
Romans 7:25 (MSG) “The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.” Bev Robinson
April 13, 2015. Waiting is probably everyone’s favorite past-time, right? That is almost never the case for most people. Waiting can be somewhat intolerable. Impatience and people in general seem to go hand in hand. It is uncharacteristic for you to take time to just sit and wait. Try doing so for any length of time and you can almost go senseless. What I want you to do is wait patiently. Learn obedience. Train yourself to listen intently. Tune everything out except Me. What’s forthcoming depends on it. I wait for you. Wait patiently for Me.
Isaiah 30:18 (ESV) “Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.” Kevin Robinson
April 11, 2015. I have chosen you because you already exhibit an example of Jesus on the earth today. This fact makes you uncomfortable. But consider what you wish others to observe in and about you. Let your heart desire to be a well-rounded believer who exhibits in day to day living an integrity and seriousness in Godliness beyond criticism. Set these attributes as top priority for your life. You are running well the race while keeping your eyes focused on the high prize of displaying Jesus to the world about you. Let your integrity reign supreme.
Titus 2:7 (NLT) “And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. Ras Robinson
April 11, 2015. Don’t stop doing what you are doing. You are doing the right thing and going in the right direction. Yes, you will be tested. Aren’t you always? You will pass the test and keep right on going. You are listening to Me. That not only causes good things to happen but it also gives a great sense of fulfillment. You were created for good works and doing that gives you a sense of accomplishment that you can get no other way. You will help others and, Beloved, that helps you.
Ephesians 2:10 (ESV) “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Bev Robinson
April 11, 2015. What have you done with the spiritual knowledge you’ve learned and been given? Much like the parable of the talents, you have been blessed to receive a portion or gift of learning the precepts of My word. You have been granted priceless wisdom, understanding and knowledge. The question now is, what are you planning to do with it? Will you bury it? Will you hide it under a bushel? You have been given a lot. You are rich in regard to heavenly treasures. Strongly consider being a spiritual philanthropist.
Matthew 10:7-8 (MSG) “Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.” Kevin Robinson
April 10, 2015. Greater love. Good friends are not like apples falling from a tree. Once while on vacation we rented a house that had many apple trees. It was apple harvest season. One tree had branches covering our roof. Day and night, we heard the “thud” of apples landing on our roof. There were apples everywhere in the yard. We would forage for the very best apples. Really great apples are now our standard and choice. Greater love, Jesus declared, involves laying down your life for your friends. Are you a great apple for God?
John 15:13 (NASB) “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” Ras Robinson
April 10, 2015. Beloved, your challenges and problems have been the main things on your mind. Let Me be the main thing on your mind. Keeping Me and My ways on your mind brings praise and glory to Me. Keeping your challenges and problems on your mind in effect brings praise and glory to them. Make the choice, Beloved. Don’t let your mind drift in the way of unbelief or distrust. Harness your mind, bringing it unto Me and My ways. My way is the way of peace, love, joy, security and multiplied blessings.
Romans 4:20 (AMP) “No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God,” Bev Robinson
April 10, 2015. Be outlandish, bold, and strong. Take your faith walk seriously. For some reason you doubt whether the truth you see throughout the Bible can be applied to you. Excuses are made as to why you cannot believe. You think you are unworthy to receive blessings from Me in the natural and the supernatural. Nonsense, absolute nonsense. Be proactive instead of reactive. Pursue me with real desire and fixed attention. With full assurance, see healing and deliverance take place through your prayers. Expect signs and wonders to follow you daily.
James 5:16b-18 (NASB) “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.” Kevin Robinson
April 9, 2015. Why does anxiety at times take such a firm hold on us? Why can anxiety send us to the hospital? Anxiety can become so weighty that one can despair of life itself. Yes, sins can find you out. You can become too familiar with self-sufficiency, without confessing and declaring Jesus as Lord of all. You don’t want this! You may be known to others as one who repents quickly. Therefore today repent and turn back to God. Let your sin of self-sufficiency be washed away. Declare again total dependency on Him and bring joy to your soul once more.
Proverbs 12:25 (AMP) “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad.”
Psalm 38:18 (NASB) “For I confess my iniquity; I am full of anxiety because of my sin.”
Psalm 94:19 (NIV) ” When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” Ras Robinson
April 9, 2015. It feels like a stalemate has come. You’ve wondered what happened because you were running so well. You are wondering: Did I do something wrong? Did I misstep? Did I lose my focus? What happened? No Beloved, nothing is wrong. It is just a time of waiting. Other factors must come into play in this venture. Enjoy the quietness. Enjoy the slowing down of activities. Be at peace with the lack of hurrying. Soon things will get into a high gear again because blessings are coming that will astound many.
Isaiah 40:31 (MSG) “But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.” Bev Robinson
April 9, 2015. Love others like there’s no tomorrow. Let My love be the driving force which motivates you each day. Be creative as I am creative. Find ways to focus your thoughts, actions and words on things that are righteous and respectful about those who surround you. Be real in showing love to others. Build each other up with My words of hope and life. Refuse to let your mind wander into negativity. Be purposeful in displaying love, true love. Make this a lifelong pattern in your life. Be a blessing!
Romans 12:9-10 (NLT) “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” Kevin Robinson
April 8, 2015. This may make you uncomfortable. Signs in the heavens have very recently been laden with My messages for you in this season. Good and terrible things are on the devil’s menu today. It is a good question you ask, “Where do I fit in?” It is likely that you will see boots on your shores and missiles in your skies. Your leaders are crying “peace,” “peace” but there is no peace. Skilled and anointed negotiators continue to waste their time seeking the most reasonable strategies. Our hope is knowing God, loving Him and making Him known.
Isaiah 8:9-10 (NIV) “Raise the war cry, you nations, and be shattered! Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.” Ras Robinson
April 8, 2015. Changing positions is not the answer. You may choose to do so, but it’s not the best. You have a difficult time submitting to authority. You saw a lack of submission while growing up and this affects you. But it is time to make a stand. You can stay where you are and learn but if you choose to go you will still need to learn. My word is filled with examples of blessings when one submits; Jesus’ submission to Me being the highest example. Learn and receive supreme blessings.
Romans 13:1-2 (ESV) “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” Bev Robinson
April 8, 2015. Consider how you will respond when criticism, problems, and conflict come your way. In general, what is your first response? Are you one who gets defensive and gives a terse volley with equal manner to what you have received? Think about who you are representing. You are an ambassador for Me to any and all who cross your path. How did I react when hardship came My way? Did I defend myself? What was my mission while I walked the earth? Think and pray before you give a response.
James 1:2-3 (MSG) “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows it’s true colors.” Kevin Robinson
April 7, 2015. You should be encouraging and teaching your son(s) and daughter(s) every day in some manner. Make sure they know the foundation of your faith and that they are affirmed for embracing them. Tell them how proud you are of them because of the positive feedback that comes from common friends and family. So many have told me my son is the most righteous man they know. Sons and daughters are top drawer testimonies of your Christian faith. Ask God how you can build up other parents in this regard. Godly sons and daughters are priceless.
Proverbs 7:1-2 (NASB) “My son, keep my words and treasure my commandments within you. Keep my commandments and live, and my teaching as the apple of your eye.” Ras Robinson
April, 7, 2015. I am telling you Beloved, if you will work at keeping your heart pure before Me and also work at keeping your mind and heart full of faith, there is no limit to what I will do on your behalf. I have a plan for your life that would astound you if you knew it all. You can have a fresh start every day. Confess any sin and turn from it quickly. Listen intently to Me and obey. You will be amazed at the blessings which will come your way.
2 Chronicles 16:9a (NLT) “The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” Bev Robinson
April 7, 2015. Be careful not to make your interpretation of My truth different than the true knowledge of what My word says. It is a common mistake believers and non-believers make in their explanation of the Bible. Make sure the revelation you’ve received is not from the teaching of man, but rather from the Holy Spirit with Scripture taken in full context. You will hear people say, “I’m just speaking the truth.” Perhaps this is so, but at what cost? Is My love the foundation of what you proclaim?
John 8:32 (NIV) “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Kevin Robinson
April 6, 2015. New things will manifest for you. Your future is not in your past. Up until now you have focused on your history. Can I tell you it has come and gone? Turn your eyes and heart now toward the new things I am speaking and will be speaking to you for the rest of your life. Tune your heart like tuning your radio to the right station for you. I will be broadcasting daily keys and secrets concerning your glorious future with Me. Avoid static and worldly ideas!
Isaiah 42:9 (NIV) “See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” Ras Robinson
April 6, 2015. An end of something is rapidly approaching. You haven’t given it much thought. In fact you almost had forgotten about it. There is nothing to worry about. Another thing for you to be involved in is on the horizon. You don’t know all the details and won’t know all the details until they unfold before you. This is a time to completely trust in Me. I will show you what to do as you go along. As events unfold, you will seek Me and I will show you. Trust Me.
Proverbs 3:5-7 (AMP) “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” Bev Robinson
April 6, 2015.Do you desire to live a long time? Consider a change of heart and mind. Though some see us as living in a fatherless society, you have been blessed with spiritual fathers and mothers who have given you instruction along the way in your spiritual walk. They have given you priceless wisdom and a wealth of understanding. It is time to give them the honor that is due them. Think of ways you can display respect and admiration through your words and in your actions as well. Honor is very appropriate.
Ephesians 6:2-3 (NLT) “Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.” Kevin Robinson
April 4, 2015. Choose well to whom you look for counsel. If a farmer is touting the high quality of corn seed he has, ask to see his corncrib. If he has a crib full of excellent corn produced from those high quality seed, he is good counsel to you. The same is true of righteousness. Righteousness or right standing with God is desirable. If a counselor claims to be righteous, let him display a life of peace with multiplied righteousness. That fruit of righteousness is to produce a peaceful fruit consistent with God’s purpose, thoughts and actions.
Hebrews 12:11 (AMP) “For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness-in conformity to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God].” Ras Robinson
April 4, 2015. Someone has made a suggestion that you wonder how you are going to handle. This one thinks changes in your life are not good. They want you to do it their way, the way it has always been done. You don’t know what to do. Get some counsel on how to handle this. Go to others and tell them what has happened. Go to more than one and listen carefully to what is said. I am teaching you wisdom from people who are wise and have more experience than you.
Proverbs 11:14 (AMP) “Where no wise guidance is, the people fall, but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Bev Robinson
April 4, 2015. You have strong opinions concerning the way your government should be run. What I am doing is accomplishing My dominion upon the earth. You have been swayed by various arguments and platforms which have formed your political beliefs. It is good you are involved. Some people are conservative, liberal, moderate or independent. Your belief and stance is unwavering. At times, you don’t like the direction your government is going. But know this. Governments are governed by Me and My ways will be established. I am in complete control.
Isaiah 9:6 (KJV) “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Kevin Robinson
April 3, 2015. God is able to accomplish the impossible in and for you. His power has never been measured because infinity has no limits. He conquers enemy armies and nations. The devil flees at hearing His word. You can believe everything is possible and nothing is impossible according to God’s will. Financial ruin, cancer, divorce, divided families and nations. Think of it, anytime God takes action in behalf of His children, He gets all the glory . He craves that glory. You have the ability to make sure He gets it. Go for it.
Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ras Robinson
April 3, 2015. Some decisions you made aren’t in your best interest. The best thing to do now is to trust Me to make corrections. When you do this you will see that I always have the best for you. This will cause you to trust Me more. Some of these I will reverse and others will just turn for your good; that is if you continue trusting Me. I look for faith working through love. When faith and love work together all things work out and work together for your good.
Galatians 5:6 (AMP) “For [if we are] in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love.” Bev Robinson
April 3, 2015. I can understand what you are going through. Though I am never hopeless, there were times My disciples couldn’t grasp the truth of all that I came for. You have had periods of being downhearted. Some things which you placed a lot of your hope in, all but disappeared. People are imperfect and often let you down and fall short of your expectations. The period you are in is a short phase of despair. Instead of focusing your attention on your disappointments, regroup your thoughts and think on My sufficiency.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV) ” But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” Kevin Robinson
April 2, 2015. Is your old man or nature acting up again? Have you stepped onto a slippery slope and do not see an exit sign? A familiar voice inside you whispers “I told you it was too good to be true. I guess you now see the real person you are – a flawed and failed believer.” Take a breath and tell the devil he is right about you. You are indeed flawed and a failure without and before Christ. But now you are whole, free and blessed. Get up and act like it.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” Ras Robinson
April 2, 2015. Satan is setting a trap. This is one of his favorites, because he has great success with people falling headlong into this trap. Some even stay trapped there for years. It remains to be seen if you will bite the bait to choose the headlong plunge. The trap will come from seemingly out of nowhere and will be a complete surprise. This is a heads-up warning. When it comes let it roll off you quickly. Forgive and do not take revenge. Show Satan you trusted Me and overcame his trap.
Romans 12:18-19 (NKJV) “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.” Bev Robinson
April 2, 2015. When it comes to faith, there must be no ifs, ands, or doubts. When you approach Me about gaining wisdom, your faith must be solid. It is like sitting in a chair. There must be no thought of skepticism. Don’t allow your thoughts to wander. Know I am the beginning and the end. I am the one who authored the thought progressions in your intellect. From where does your basis of loyalty come? Surround yourself with like-minded people whose belief structure is robust. Trust in Me and in Me alone.
James 1:5-6 (MSG) “If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.” Kevin Robinson
April 1, 2015. You can know your future today! The Father has sent the Holy Spirit so that you will not walk in darkness or ignorance. He knows everything you ever dreamed of knowing. There are no secrets, but instead there is a steady stream of exciting revelation of things to come. The Spirit knows all things because He is unified with the Father and Jesus in all things, including complete knowledge concerning your future. To disclose all this to you delights the Spirit because He is revealing the word of Jesus. This pleases you and also glorifies Jesus.
John 16:13-14 (NASB) “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.” Ras Robinson
April 1, 2015. I know you like to give compliments. You often see good in others. Compliments bless them, build them up and give you both a good feeling. But you need to practice receiving compliments also. You find it harder to receive than to give. I am telling you not to minimize it when someone tells you good character qualities they see in you. Receive what is said with graciousness and let the compliments bathe your soul. Let your mind dwell on the good words said to you. Good compliments cause good health in you.
Proverbs 17:22 (NKJV) “A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” Bev Robinson
April 1, 2015.When you hear the word cannibalism, you immediately think of something horrific and dreadful. You cannot imagine somebody doing that to another human being. Yet on occasions you let biting and devouring slip into your words and actions. Don’t let this take hold of you. Don’t let your flesh get in the ascendancy. Keep My Holy Spirit in control of your mind and your mouth. Look for good qualities in others. Then let those things fill your mind. This is what you are to speak about.
Galatians 5:14:16 (NLT) “For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another. So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.” Kevin Robinson
