August 30, 2014.   Be careful.  Be on guard concerning what your mind is thinking.  Don’t let your thinking be critical or judgmental.  This is not good for you or anyone else.  You do not know all that is going on.  Beloved, don’t assess things like you know.  Your assignment is to bless and curse not.  Your assignment is to believe the best.  When you stay within these boundaries, good arises, fills the air, overflows and pours back over you and everyone around you.  Continue believing and speaking blessings and watch it happen.
Romans 14:4 (NASB)  “Who are you to judge the servant of another?  To his own master he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.”  Bev Robinson 

August 30, 2014.   You are living on the high road.  The low road looks easier and perhaps more expedient, but it is not for you.  You can rightfully feel good about serving Christ in this way.  By this I mean, walk circumspectly according to the belief system based in Him.  Keep your conscience clean and pure and live accordingly.  This is the Christian life in a nutshell . You will teach yourself to be a good citizen of the Kingdom of God.  Living righteously will make you a good example to others.
Romans 14:16-18 (NIV)   “Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.  For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.”  Ras Robinson


August 29, 2014.   There is no reason for hope that you can see.  The place for hope is beyond what you see and right now you can’t see the whole picture.  It will be much clearer later.   All you have now is blind trust.  To get peace of mind you need to trust Me implicitly that I have it all under control.   Do you remember when I said I don’t control anyone?  That is still true.  I have given everyone freedom of choice for their own situations.  I want for you peace of mind.  Trust Me.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)  “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.  Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.”  Bev Robinson 

August 29, 2014.   Rejoicing while surviving in the trials of life is a wonder.  But what if you find yourself singing in your mind and soul even while in pain?  Being an earthly king does not exempt you from the devil’s battles.  Just look forward and you will see victory on the horizon.  That scene is in the natural.  But in the spiritual, the victory has already been won.  Why?  Because while you were sleeping, I was there beside you humming My song.  Seeing My strength and unending joy and rejoicing grows your faith.  Hold nothing back.
Daniel 4:34-35 (MSG)   “At the end of the seven years, I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked to heaven.  I was given my mind back and I blessed the High God, thanking and glorifying God, who lives forever.  His sovereign rule lasts and lasts, his kingdom never declines and falls.  Life on this earth doesn’t add up to much, but God’s heavenly army keeps everything going. No one can interrupt his work, no one can call his rule into question.”   Ras Robinson


August 28, 2014.   I know things are tough.  I see that.  At the same time I see good things right beside the hard tough things.  You have a choice.  You can concentrate on the hard things or you can focus on the good things.  The hard things will soon pass, but if you focus on them that will eventually be bad for your health.  Focusing on the good draws more good.  I am good.  Focus on Me.  Obey and I will bring people that they too will learn to focus on My goodness.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NASB)  “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  Bev Robinson

August 28, 2014.   You have been special and chosen since your birth.  My favor has always been with you.  It has been my delight to bless you as you come in and bless you as you go out.  Actually, you have never left My presence.  I find you desirable, not only as My child, but also as My friend.  My thoughts always go with you so that you are protected from the enemy of your soul.  Your heart is full of goodness.  Let Me cleanse it to assure you of long and good days.
Psalm 139:23-24 (NASB)   “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.”   Ras Robinson


August 27, 2014.   Events are moving so fast that you have wondered if time is actually speeding up.  Don’t you remember that My ways are beyond your ways?  Yes, time is approaching very quickly to an end as you and others know it.  You are on the side that wins.  I know you as one who wants to win, but I also know this about you.  You want everyone to win.  I do too.  But I love people enough not to control them.  I have left it as their choice to make.
Psalms 75:1-3 NASB   “We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works.  When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity.  The earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah.”   Bev Robinson

August 27, 2014.   This current season is one of balancing the blessings of love and unity with profound losses.  It is a bittersweet time.  Don’t ever think the Holy Spirit is not aware.  He is behind the scenes, orchestrating a release of a new level of joy and celebration.  Where there has been love and unity, there will be an increase of same to the flood stage.  He is arranging the losses in such a way that will bring understanding and wisdom for the next season.  Your own comfort will manifest.  Turn and comfort others.
Jeremiah 31:13 (NLT)   “The young women will dance for joy, and the men-old and young-will join in the celebration. I will turn their mourning into joy.  I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.”  Ras Robinson


August 26, 2014.   I have given you the power to choose.  Use that power wisely today and in many days to come.  There will be a multitude of choices before you.  Don’t get on auto pilot and make choices just the way you’ve made them in the past, just because that’s the way you’ve always made them.  My way is the way of giving.  You will receive more by giving than you do by taking.  Taking is the way of the world.  Giving is My way. You’ll see you can’t out give Me.
Luke 6:38 (NIV)  “Give, and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”  Bev Robinson 

August 26, 2014.   You are one who watches over the integrity of your lips.  Being careful to fulfill promises is a tenet to you.  People can depend upon what you say as being true.  The promises you make are certain to be fulfilled. Even if you forget or neglect a promise, you still go back and make good on what you have said that it be right and true.  The reputation you enjoy is largely based on righteousness in doing what you say you will do.  This is why you are so trusted.  Keep it up.
Deuteronomy 23:22-23 (NIV)   “But if you refrain from making a vow, you will not be guilty.  Whatever your lips utter you must be sure to do, because you made your vow freely to the LORD your God with your own mouth.”   Ras Robinson


August 25, 2014.   You have trusted Me even on your mother’s breast.  At the time, you didn’t know I was the One whom you trusted, but nevertheless I was.  I revealed Myself to you as you grew.  Then one day you were surprised to find that I was there all along your path taking care of you.  You were overjoyed that it was Me whom you were trusting.  You began to see Me as the Creator of all things, now you are seeing I am the One who loves and cares beyond comparison.

Psalms 22:9-10 (NLT)  “Yet you brought me safely from my mother’s womb and led me to trust you at my mother’s breast. I was thrust into your arms at my birth. You have been my God from the moment I was born.”   Bev Robinson 

August 25, 2014.   Three of our great-grandchildren (ages 1, 2 and 3) came for supper last Friday evening at our house.  They and their parents were here only two hours, but their presence absolutely changed our home atmosphere.  Life, filled with the joy of playing and laughter, reigned supreme. It was like a rush of cold air on a hot summer day.  They refreshed my soul from the effects of a long and wearisome day.  Thank you Lord for the refreshment little children embody and radiate.  Jesus said, “Permit the little children to come unto Me. For such is the Kingdom of God.”  Could it be that the little children brought refreshment to Him after His long and wearisome day?

Proverbs 3:21-22 (NLT)  “My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul.  They are like jewels on a necklace.”  Ras Robinson


 

August 23, 2014.   A turning of affection is in the air.  This isn’t a bad thing.  Quite the contrary.  It is a very good thing.  There is more room for affection than there is a supply of affection.  The supply doesn’t run out.  The more love is given the more love is in the pipe line.  It can’t run out when it is from Me and this is from Me.  It isn’t one or the other it is both/and.  Soak it up when you see it.  Let it be ointment to your being.
1 John 4:18-19 (NASB)  “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us.”  Bev Robinson 

August 23, 2014.   A Jerusalem is set aside for you during your battles and pain.  Times are hard.   But comfort is on the way as I have promised.  The devil has stepped up the cadence of his attacks to kill, steal and destroy your good life and destiny.  He knows his time is running out.  I have sent myriads of warrior angels to defend and protect you.  It is impossible for them to fail.  Rest assured as you begin singing victory songs, clapping your hands and raising your arms in victory.  You have overcome.
Isaiah 49:13 (NASB)  “Shout for joy, O heavens! And rejoice, O earth!  Break forth into joyful shouting, O mountains!  For the LORD has comforted His people And will have compassion on His afflicted.”  Ras Robinson


August 22, 2014.   Right now it seems like there is more before you to handle than you have the resources to accomplish.  There really isn’t, but it feels like it.  I know pressure has built up.  But don’t give in to the pressure.  Keep a cool center.  When your center stays cool and positive, all the goings on around you will not get you off course even though they are heated and fast.  Beloved, keep your focus on Me.  Keep your mind centered on Me.  Keep your heart fixed on My grace and sufficiency.
2 Corinthians 9:8 (NASB)   “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;”  Bev Robinson

August 22, 2014.   You do not respond to bullies.  In fact, you are stalwart and filled with bravado and peace.  This is a time of threats and scare tactics.  Their threats only cause you to exude peace of mind and heart.  There is no fear that will overtake you.  Without fearing, you settle in for a sustained victory.  You know I am on your side.  I fight your battles for you. Therefore, the many threats coming at you cause no panic.  God gives you wisdom and understanding.  Rest in His sweet peace.
Matthew 24:6 (NLT)   “And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.”  Ras Robinson


August 21, 2014.   It turned out just as I told you it would, didn’t it?  It even turned out better than what you expected.  The reason being you don’t know the full extent of what I was working out in the lives of all those involved.  Ahead of time it was hard to believe the good that would result because you are so deeply involved.  But I am so pleased that you trusted Me as much as you did.  You didn’t cave in, you didn’t come unraveled and you didn’t fire back.  You are walking in greater faith and will continue if you seek Me and believe what I say.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (AMP)  “For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.”  Bev Robinson

August 21, 2014.   Do not be surprised when I do the impossible right before your eyes.  Think about this.  All things are from Me, through Me and to Me for My glory.  My kingdom is a spiritual kingdom and it includes everything I created and rule over.  I am the Lord of all.  I created all things.  All things exist because I permit it to exist for My purposes.  Even things too difficult for you to understand have a purpose.  You have been wise to pray with faith believing for those things that seem impossible . This has pleased Me and I see that it is increasing your faith.  Now I want you to testify of what I have done.  Exult in My glory.
Romans 11:36 (NASB)  “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever.  Amen.”  Ras Robinson


August 20, 2014.   Don’t give in.  I am pleased that you have not given up.  Your prize is right around the corner.  It can’t be seen yet.  The victory is only in your mind.  It won’t materialize all at once, but will come slowly into view.  Your faith is carrying you through.  At times your faith has become small but don’t despair.  It will become great again.  You have walked in great faith in the past and will do so again.  Right now the obstacle is great. Believe that your faith is greater.
Luke 7:9 (NASB)  “Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, “I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith.”  Bev Robinson

August 20, 2014.   You have been set free by the death and resurrection of your Lord Jesus.  In His death, He fulfilled the Law through being the perfect sacrifice for your sins and those of the whole world.  Freedom from sin is available to all who believe in Him and what He has done to set believers free.  And remember, he whom He sets free is free indeed.  As you love Jesus with all you heart, soul and body, He continues to be your sacrifice through His death.  You, instead, spend your life and energy glorifying God in freedom.
Romans 7:7 (NASB)  “What shall we say then?  Is the Law sin?  May it never be!  On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, “YOU SHALL NOT COVET.”  Ras Robinson


August 19, 2014.   Favor is available that you have not thought about.  In fact you didn’t realize it was available at all.  Yes, it is.  It came with receiving me as Savior and Lord, even though you weren’t told about it then.  Those who led you to receive Me didn’t know or understand all that My finished work on the cross made available.  I knew there would be a time when this would come as revelation to you.  You have just touched the hem of understanding.  Read My Word to find out more.
1 Corinthians 1:4-7 (NASB)  “I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,”  Bev Robinson 

August 19, 2014.   My glory is released in an atmosphere of My love.  When My glory is manifesting, there is perfect unity.  The stronger the glory, the more powerful the unity of those I love and those who love Me.  I instruct you to seek My glory upon earth in all that you do and say.  It is a love based phenomenon worth hot pursuit.  Humble yourself to the point that godly (agape) love is produced and spread all around.  The love becomes like a holy glue that binds hearts into My heart.
John 17:22-23 (NASB)  “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”  Ras Robinson


August 18, 2014.   The blessings that you see around you are yours, but you have to believe they are.  Right now they seem a world away.  They are, but the world away is not as far as it looks.  If you keep believing and keep following Me, they will be on your doorstep before you know it.  I lead you in peace and rest.  Yes, there will be work, but it will be the work of faith, not work of the flesh.  The work of faith listens to Me and simply obeys Me.
James 2:21-23 (NASB)  “Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar?  You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected;  and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, ” AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.”  Bev Robinson 

August 18, 2014.   Your decision has been made for you. Like Joshua, you have been chosen to go into the land of promise.  You wondered if My promises would actually materialize.  Well, they will and they have.  I have tapped you, of all people, to bring in the blessings of the new land and opportunities.  Your full inheritance shall be yours.  You will deliver to others their inheritance.  Stop fearing that your offspring will be robbed of theirs.  It is not so nor will it ever be so.  These little ones are especially chosen for this great day. Lead.  I say again, lead.
Deuteronomy 1:38-39 (MSG)  “Your assistant, Joshua son of Nun, will go in.  Build up his courage.  He’s the one who will claim the inheritance for Israel.  And your babies of whom you said, ‘They’ll be grabbed for plunder,’ and all these little kids who right now don’t even know right from wrong-they’ll get in.  I’ll give it to them.  Yes, they’ll be the new owners.”  Ras Robinson 


August 16, 2014.   A time is soon coming when you will be learning things that you have not heretofore known.  Beloved, I know your heart.  Deep down you want to learn all you can about Me and My ways.  That pleases Me to no end.  You are living and operating now by what you know.  That too greatly pleases Me.  It’s time to learn more.  You’ve waited, and it is coming.  Your godly wisdom will deepen.  Some eagerly wait for what you will learn.  They too are wanting to know My ways.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”   Bev Robinson 

August 16, 2014.   God’s promises are certain.  They will eventually manifest.  They come through the death of Jesus for the sins of all mankind.  Jesus came as glory, grace and truth for all believers everywhere.  He became and forever will be your “Word” of God, bringing Himself, grace and truth.  His grace is absolutely too good to be true in the eyes of many believers.  His truth brings freedom and access into the Kingdom of God.  All of God’s blessings are now yours to receive, even as your father Abraham received them. Freely share the grace and truth God has given you.
John 1:1-14 (NKJV)14   “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”  Ras Robinson


August 15, 2014.   There’s no way you can know how much I love you.  There is nothing you have experienced that can compare to My love.  You have never seen this kind of love.  You know one that comes close, but not exactly.  Don’t try to figure it out.  Just receive it.  Enjoy it.  Bask in it.  Pass it on.  People don’t realize how much they want it. It is readily available . It came at a high price, the life of My Son, but now freely given.  Continue receiving My love and passing it on.
Romans 5:7-8 (NLT)  “Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good.  But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”  Bev Robinson 

August 15, 2014.   It is good that you do not think of or dwell on temptation.  Temptation can be like a hidden viper waiting on your happy path.  It waits for the perfect moment to strike.  Change your path away from the weeds in which the viper hides.  Be wise like that serpent and outfox it.  In so doing you will avoid pain that can last a lifetime.  After watching and praying, do your part and God will do His.  He knows all about temptation.  After all, He taught Jesus how to avoid it.
Mark 14:38 (NASB)   “Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”  Ras Robinson


August 14, 2014.   Something is before you that will eventually require a response.  Will you respond in like manner or will you follow My ways.  Deep down you know what this way is, but now it is hard to consider doing good.  My way is to not take offense.  It doesn’t matter if what was done was unplanned or on purpose.  However it came, it was done without your feelings being considered.  My way is to bless in return and not curse.  I know you.  You feel like cursing, but you will bless instead.
Romans 12:20-21 (MSG)  “Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he’s thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness.  Don’t let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good.”  Bev Robinson 

August 14, 2014.   You are a vital connection to a spiritual network greater than yourself. Your body is a miracle in how it functions each day.  With your body functioning well, you can work wonders too good to be true.  But you need connections to others called by God.  Jesus sent you to the poor and needy.  You love them so much it moves you to give and serve.  You can do much.  But when connecting with others, you can transform especially children, widows and orphans.  Show your love as Jesus has loved you.
Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)   “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”  Ras Robinson


August 13, 2014.   Don’t lose heart.  The hard part is almost over.  The enemy of your soul hit you head on with full force.  He cannot win.  He has not won and he will not win.  He is a defeated foe.  He tempted Me and he is tempting you.  You are going the right way and you are right over the target.  Satan would be so pleased if he could discourage you from believing.  But don’t do it.  Don’t give up your faith.  Victory is yours and it is right around the corner.  Keep believing.
1 Peter 5:10-11 (NASB)  “After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.  To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.”   Bev Robinson

August 13, 2014.    Focus on kindness and you will win the day.  Yes, some will take advantage of it and seek to defeat you.  But you belong to Me and you have Jesus living inside you.  Kindness is driven by the most precious thing of all — love, My love, agape love.  Keep it pure and simple.  Get beyond yourself and put others first.  Selfishness and self centeredness have to exit.  Honor, affirmation and acclaim move into every place you go.  You are on a roll now.  You notice that My hand of grace is upon you.  Use it as My gift to you and through you to all those around you.  Focus on kindness.
Proverbs 3:3-4 (NASB)  “Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.  Ras Robinson


August 12, 2014.   While you are sleeping I am watching over you.  You have no idea what is going on as you rest and dream.  I am doing much more than watching.  I am causing events to happen that will bring about the promises that you earlier received from Me.  Yes, there are things you will do, but I will show you those things as you go.  Don’t concern yourself about them now.  Too much thinking and planning and you could get ahead of Me.  Time is wasted when you have to back track.

Genesis 28:15-16 (NASB)  “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”  Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, ” Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”   Bev Robinson 

August 12, 2014.   Do you want to receive a life-changing revelation?  Jacob had a crisis. He lay down and slept.  During the night, God the Father did a great work for Jacob.  He saw a ladder to heaven with God waiting for him at the top.  The three verses below detail what God promised Jacob.  It was protected and kept as a promise within the old covenant.  But God made a new covenant with even better promises.  Believers today are abundantly blessed by obeying the voice of our Lord God.

Genesis 28:13-15 (NASB)   “And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants.Your descendants will also be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”  Ras Robinson 


 

August 11, 2014.   All your blessings arise out of the new covenant.  Beloved, I know you are going through a hard time.  Everything you need and many of your wants have been established by the covenant Jesus made with Me.  He lived a life of perfect obedience, died and rose again in perfect obedience.  When you believe, you get in on all the benefits of that covenant.  I know you did not realize it when you first believed, but realize it now.  I love you and will never abandon you.  Trust Me.
Galatians 4:6-7 (NASB)   “Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, ” Abba! Father!”  Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.   Bev Robinson 

August 11, 2014.   Trust your heart. Keep it pure and clean.  Then when I direct you to do so, do what is in your heart.  An armor bearer must stay clean so his service to his master comes from Me.  Dare to step out and take a risk.  I will reward you accordingly.  Allow Me to train your heart so that you have both humility and authority when directions or instructions are asked of you.  I will keep your spigot open and regulated by My Spirit.
Jeremiah 22:16 (NIV)   “He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?” declares the LORD.”  Ras Robinson


August 9, 2014.   These thoughts have come to your mind, “This problem is too big for me to overcome.  I have had this a long time.  I’ve failed before and I might fail again.  I don’t want to fail.”  Beloved, this time you will not fail.  Don’t give up.  Think continually of the New Covenant that was established by Jesus with Me.  He did not fail at any point.  You get in on the covenant that was made by believing.  If you keep this in mind, I assure success.  Do not entertain ANY unbelief.
Hebrews 8:5-6 (NASB)  “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.”  Bev Robinson

August 9, 2014.   You never tire of telling the ones you love the very most how much you love them.  You repeat over and over again the fact that you love them.  You enjoy telling them as much or more than they enjoy hearing your declaration.  Repetition drives the point home quite well.  Ask any teacher the value of repetition.  The Lord says today, “I love you and want you to love Me more than any other.  And again I say, love your neighbor as yourself.  This is the first and most important commandment.”
2 John 1:4-5 (MSG)  “I can’t tell you how happy I am to learn that many members of your congregation are diligent in living out the Truth, exactly as commanded by the Father.  But permit me a reminder, friends, and this is not a new commandment but simply a repetition of our original and basic charter: that we love each other.”   Ras Robinson 


August 8, 2014.   All day long and even way into the night you get to choose your thoughts.  I want you to begin thinking and rethinking this.  Consider what you are thinking about.  What’s in your heart is what you have repeatedly thought about.  When you think about something over and over again, it finally drops into your heart.  So why not think about things for which you are thankful?  Why not think about the times I rescued you?  Think about the blessings you have had throughout your life . This thinking will bless your life.
Romans 12:2 (NLT)   “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”  Bev Robinson 

August 8, 2014.   You have no better friend than Me!  As your friend, I give you priority in My covenants and blessings.  Abraham is My friend.  He has been made to be your spiritual father with all the benefits.  As a believer, you are his beneficiary, you and all your spiritual offspring.  Greatness in this life is yours because you are blessed by Me and Abraham.  All this by the grace of God.  You are a great part of Abraham’s blessings to all he families of the earth.  Rejoice greatly.
Genesis 18:17-18 (AMP)   “And the Lord said, shall I hide from Abraham [My friend and servant] what I am going to do, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed through him and shall bless themselves by him?”  Ras Robinson 


 

August 7, 2014.   The roadblock is not really a roadblock to stop you.  It is to turn you in a slightly different direction.  It’s a detour . Follow the signs.  You will arrive at the right destination, but just not the way you thought.  Think outside the box.  Continue seriously seeking Me.  I have the exact way to get done what is planned.  It is just not the way you thought.  Keep your faith high.  Don’t be discouraged.  Nothing was done wrong.  Beloved, I am teaching you to ask at every cross road
Psalms 25:4-5 (NLT)   “Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me.  All day long I put my hope in you.”   Bev Robinson 

August 7, 2014.   Choose carefully and prayerfully the company you keep.  I see you beginning to relate to and connect with another powerful and blessed stream.  This is good.  Your stream is good now, but you want it to become even stronger.  I bless you to pursue it.  Together, both streams greatly increase.  My plan for this is in your heart now.  Continue but let Me lead you.  I see further and deeper.  Walk closely with Me.  I will sharpen your vision and increase your wisdom.  Stay submitted and I will give you great success.
Genesis 39:2-3 (NLT)  “The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.  Potiphar noticed this and realized that the LORD was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did.”  Ras Robinson 


August 6, 2014.    Blessing will be abounding.  Right now you can’t see that and have some fear of what is ahead.  I know it isn’t a debilitating fear, but it can get that way quickly.  You are concerned that maybe some hidden factors are occurring.  Your thoughts can get out of control.  Don’t let them get going under the guise of caring.  Corral those thoughts before they become suspicions.  Put all the discernment on Me.  Then get that mind of yours on the good things.  Blessings are coming.  Think on that.
Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG)  “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray.  Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.  Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.  It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”   Bev Robinson 

August 6, 2014.   Are you being stretched in your faith to believe for an impossible situation?  Without funding, I believed God for sponsoring a little girl to defeat poverty in her life and family.  She was a hopeless child living on a massive garbage dumpsite for a huge city.  I wept openly as God said to me, “Spend the rest of your life seeing to it that this child and those like her everywhere will not repeat the endemic poverty cycle of her heritage.  Tell the story of this child and her needs.  Make it known as best you can.  I will handle the rest.”  Today the one has become almost 900 in our thirteenth year.  What is God saying to you?
Romans 4:17 (NLT)  “That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, ‘I have made you the father of many nations.’  This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing.”  Ras Robinson 


August 5, 2014.   You are right where you are supposed to be.  I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, but nevertheless you are.  In times past, you haven’t always realized that you were right where you needed to be but you were.  There was grace and favor upon you then and there is grace and favor upon you now.  You have a good heart.  You are submitting to your authorities and submitting to Me.  When you trusted Me for salvation you didn’t realize the grace and favor which continued.  Keep believing and receiving.
Romans 5:17 (ESV)  “For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.”   Bev Robinson 

August 5, 2014.   The sky is the limit to characterize My love and affection for you.  It is beyond human understanding that I would divide the Trinity so that Jesus, My only Son, could be sacrificed for you.  Yes you.  He became sin in your stead.  Therefore, I declare you holy and blameless.  Because of Jesus’ death, you are free from sin forever.  My mercy covers you and sets you apart as my offspring . My faithfulness is your guarantee of eternal security for your body, soul and spirit. Come now, sit and rest with Me.
Psalm 36:5 (NASB)  “Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness reaches to the skies.”   Ras Robinson 


August 4, 2014.   Something has shaken your confidence.  Your enemy Satan is standing right at your door to grab your confidence and take it away from you.  He wants to keep you right where you are and even sliding backwards.  Stand firm.  Grit your teeth.  Let Him know who and whose you are.  It sounds ridiculous but shake his confidence.  Yes you can do this.  Standing firm shakes his confidence and it causes him to go elsewhere.  He roams the earth looking for those whose confidence in Me he can shake.  He relishes breaking teeth and robbing smiles.
Psalms 3:7-8 (NLT)  “Arise, O Lord! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked! Victory comes from you, O Lord. May you bless your people.”  Bev Robinson 

August 4, 2014.   The Rock we call Jesus can never be removed.  He has promised never to leave nor forsake you.  When everything around you is shaking, Jesus will never be shaken.  God is jealous for you, your attention and devotion.  He wants to be your Lord, Savior and your source of every blessing forever.  In His presence, you can never justify being fearful.  He honors His covenant with you even when you do not.  He makes His covenant with you eternal and He will never never break it.  God is your fortress now and forevermore.
Psalm 62:6 (NLT)  “He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.”   Ras Robinson 


August 2, 2014.   I AM LOVE.  I am watching your heart to see if you believe this.  Are you fully believing I love you?  Are you believing that, because I love you, I am blessing you?  Do you know that pouring out blessings is one of my chief characteristics?  You are concerned about your place.  Do not worry for one moment that I will not maintain your position and place.  I gave you your position so have no doubt that I will maintain it.  The change that has happened is for your good.
1 John 4:16 (MSG)  “God is love.  When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us.”  Bev Robinson 

August 2, 2014.   You are in a nesting season.  The romance of your soul, burning brightly for so long, has now become a steady glow.  Gestation is also at work.  The certainty of your birthing is sure and yet out of your control.  Not to worry, all the possibilities spin around in your head.  Blessings and even great blessings await you.  When the day comes, you will shout for joy because you will know it was all Me from the beginning.  It delights Me to please you because you take none of My glory for yourself.
Psalm 62:5 (NIV)  “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.” Ras Robinson 


August 1, 2014.   An opportunity will soon come that you have thought would be good.  When it comes it will not be as easy as you thought.  The work it will cost is greater than you imagined.  Don’t quit once you have started.  The work will be worth the reward.  Stay with it.  Don’t stop.  Once it is done you will be so fulfilled.  Hasn’t it almost always been this way?  The work to bring it about is harder than the vision that comes.  Don’t turn back.  Keep going for the reward.
Hebrews 10:38-39 (MSG)   “But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”  Bev Robinson 

August 1, 2014.   Be careful not to look for sins in others and then be their judge and jury.  To do so is inconsistent with your humble and gracious spirit.  Don’t sell yourself short to one of the most effective schemes of the devil to cause dissension and chaos.  Concerning sins in others, stop and consider well your own sins.  Deal with them until your heart is clean and pure.  Then your love will be felt by and evident to them.  Both you and they can then be happy and harmonious.  Keep fervent your love for one another.
1 Peter 4:8 (NASB)   “Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.”   Ras Robinson
