August 31, 2016. Do the women of your family and extended family know and understand the wonderful tributes they have received from God in the Scriptures? God is very pleased to see how women are at the head of the line in their love and devotion to Him. I usually greet my only daughter with words like these: “Hello, beautiful and anointed daughter.” My wife gets this greeting “Hi, my excellent wife whom I love and who earns my high honors.” Men, bless your ladies and children.
Proverbs 31:10-11 (NASB) “An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain.” Ras Robinson
August 31, 2016. Years ago we had a large vegetable garden and in August or September more than once I had to mow the grass between the rows. I had to do that because I had not been diligent in keeping up with removing the weeds. The LORD says today to be diligent about not allowing any bitterness to spring up and cause pollution or debasement in your family, friends, church or co-workers. Choose to forgive all past hurts. Now, keep yourself clean.
Hebrews 12:15 (NLT) “Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.” Bev Robinson
August 31, 2016. Right now would be an excellent time for you to look at yourself introspectively. Instead of looking at others through your own rose colored glasses, remove them. See the change that needs to happen within your own heart and mind before seeing what needs to be changed in others. Since when have you personally changed something in someone else anyway? Ask your Heavenly Father to transform your innermost being first and foremost above all else.
Psalm 51:10 (AMP) “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right and steadfast spirit within me.” Kevin Robinson
August 30, 2016. In Scripture God has given believers a glimpse of beauty and perfection in the person of Jesus. The value of His importance cannot be adequately assessed because we have no standard by which to render His value. Consider God’s word as the most valued and purest diamond and as pure as refined gold. All believers are to highly treasure every word in the Scriptures. Never add to His words or you will be reproved and proved a liar.
Proverbs 30:5-6 (NASB) “Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.” Ras Robinson
August 30, 2016. Things are piling up. If you continue in this direction much of your life will soon be out of control. You can get done what needs to be done, but it is going to take some discipline. Discipline is a good thing. At one time you were very disciplined, but some hard circumstances caused you to let it slip away. You can recover what has been lost. Start again. I will help. You will be glad.
Philippians 3:15 (MSG) “So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision-you’ll see it yet!” Bev Robinson
August 30, 2016. Don’t negatively judge the ways the Trinity does things you don’t understand. For thousands of years God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have been doing things people thought were extreme. Begin to expect the unthinkable and unimaginable at any moment of any day. The Trinity does not operate to shock or in ways we do, but rather from their perspective of directing people to God. Let your life be open to wonderment.
Hebrews 2:4 (NASB) “God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.” Kevin Robinson
August 29, 2016. People who take a firm stand or stir up agitation with their hard and fast positions are sometimes referred to as having a stiff neck. This stiff neck is usually caused by stubbornness. People who become stiffnecked are not pliable and open to negotiation or compromise that would lead to a better solution or way of doing things. Scripture warns us not to become stiffnecked when we encounter correction or reproof.
Proverbs 29:1 (NASB) “A man who hardens his neck after much reproof will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.” Ras Robinson
August 29, 2016. My blessings have been on you since before you were born. All the days of blessing were planned for you to have a wonderful future. Yes, I know at times you deviated from the good things. That got you in trouble, but you returned to Me and all was well. The times when you were obedient are the times that you remember and those were the times of greatest blessings. Obedience to the ways I lead brings supreme blessings.
Genesis 22:15-17 (MSG) “I swear-GOD’s sure word!-because you have gone through with this, and have not refused to give me your son, your dear, dear son, I’ll bless you-oh, how I’ll bless you! And I’ll make sure that your children flourish-like stars in the sky! like sand on the beaches! And your descendants will defeat their enemies.” Bev Robinson
August 29, 2016. Know this: My word for you is always spot on and right on time, every time. They come just when you need a pick me up through a word of encouragement or a word of adjustment. Through pinpoint obedience to My instruction and heeding My Father’s counsel, you can be an instrument of peace or correction to be used for My Father’s glory and praise. Listen attentively to My Spirit through your own spirit and be punctual in your obedience.
1 Corinthians 12:8 (NASB) “For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit,” Kevin Robinson
August 27, 2016. Have you ever been jealous because someone else got what you wanted but you did not get it? It takes strength of character and tough-mindedness to walk free of jealousy. When I was younger, I never noticed feeling jealousy over someone excelling over me. I was satisfied with my work and behavior so why should I be jealous of the winnings of another? Until one day I heard an inner voice telling me I had become jealous and needed to repent.
John 21:20-22 (MSG) “Turning his head, Peter noticed the disciple Jesus loved following right behind. When Peter noticed him, he asked Jesus, “Master, what’s going to happen to him?” Jesus said, “If I want him to live until I come again, what’s that to you? You-follow me.” Ras Robinson
August 27, 2016. It’s time to take action. You have seen something coming for a while. You felt it would come and was hoping it wouldn’t but it did. You have lost sleep over it, but don’t let that continue. Get counsel and listen to My Spirit. I will show you what to do. It will not be as hard as you are thinking. It might be a little difficult at first but stay committed and it will become easier.
Psalm 37:5 (NASB) “Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Bev Robinson
August 27, 2016. You are going to learn one way or the other that some things just do not work out exactly as you supposed they would. With receiving goodness from the LORD, you will have to accept some of the world’s bad that is mixed in as well. Unfortunately, you live in an imperfect world. Be thankful for all that God directs your way. The good and the supposedly bad are all a part of His grand plan of operation of working everything into something good.
Romans 8:28 (MSG) “He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.” Kevin Robinson
August 26, 2016. The LORD gives a word of caution concerning praise and recognition of oneself. It is better to receive praise from another. It would be even better if someone you do not know gives you praise. If you do the opposite and fill your conversations with self-praise, you have short-circulated God’s provision made possible by His grace and mercy. Take a little time before the LORD and ask His wisdom. He has your back also.
Proverbs 27:2 (NASB) “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.” Ras Robinson
August 26, 2016. All is good. For a while a lot seemed bad. But this is not the case. Yes, there are some things that need to be learned. But this is not going to be a bad learning time. Quite the opposite. All will turn out well. It will be an eye opening time in the spirit. Give what is happening a chance to play out. Try seeing things that are happening from My point of view and believe the best.
1 Corinthians 13:6-7 (NIV) “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Bev Robinson
August 26, 2016. The aching in your innermost being is not some sort of physical ailment, but rather a longing from within your spirit to be close to the one who knows you most intimately. Take the necessary remedy of and from the Holy Spirit which can and will alleviate the tenderness you’re experiencing. Get on a daily regimen of His doing and be compliant to His way of thinking. Jesus can cure any longing you have that’s driving you crazy.
John 14:27 (NLT) “I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” Kevin Robinson
August 25, 2016. Disturbances occur whether you like it or not. In such instances, Jesus wants to help you regain peace and calm. He knows you have taken a stand for Him to show the world that He can do all things perfectly. Jesus invites you to put Him in the middle of any disturbance. In this way He can demonstrate Himself as all powerful. Jesus is exalted through His sacrifice of His life.
Jonah 1:12 (NASB) “He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that on account of me this great storm has come upon you.” Ras Robinson
August 25, 2016. Take one day at a time. Take one event at a time. All of the rush you are feeling will soon dissipate. Do what absolutely must be done first. Don’t put that off. I have good things ahead for you. I have victory ahead. I have blessings ahead. Don’t underestimate the value of My word especially at this time when you are overwhelmed. Take time for reading and meditating and you’ll breeze right through this.
Hebrews 4:12-13 (NLT) “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.” Bev Robinson
August 25, 2016. As a believer in Jesus Christ, there are things you should avoid. Steer clear of finger pointing and gossip. It might be hate that is at the core of your speech and actions. It is time for you to change your ways. Ask God to give you a paradigm shift, a shift toward His way of looking at matters. Begin looking at others through His eyes of kindness. Display His love in the creative ways He shows you.
1 John 4:20-21 (NLT) “If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their fellow believers.” Kevin Robinson
August 24, 2016. Each and every word of God is a promise from Him. He cannot, will not lie. Jesus is the Word. No one else can lay claim to such a statement. But in order to benefit from this promise your faith must be in God. The only hindrance to God fulfilling every promise is that those to whom the promise is made cannot believe what God has promised. His promises are often outrageously strong and just.
James 2:5 (NIV) “Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?” Ras Robinson
August 24, 2016. Don’t give up hope. Move on into faith. Don’t entertain any doubt or unbelief. Refuse it at all costs. You will see how this alone will begin a flow of blessings. The circumstances don’t appear hopeful, but don’t go there at all. There will be a breakthrough when you least expect it. It won’t take a long time. You won’t have to wait like you have had to do with some things in the past. Rest in My word, Beloved.
Hebrews 4:7 (NLT) “So God set another time for entering his rest, and that time is today.” Bev Robinson
August 24, 2016. Things that normally do not bother you have risen to the top. In fact, those issues have reached their high point resulting in situations that have your emotions boiling over. Know that you are not alone. Jesus often encountered difficult situations and troublesome people and He overcame them. Find a way to remove yourself from the heat of the moment and find rest like He did underneath the mercy and strength of Almighty God.
Psalm 91:2 (NLT) “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” Kevin Robinson
August 23, 2016. Seek not only for titles your earthly system can grant. Aim higher for a heavenly award. Choose to simply follow your Leader, Jesus. He seeks no place or title for Himself, but only for what His Father in Heaven has granted Him. Watching the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics closing ceremony displayed how titles, trophies and honors were granted based upon deeds, skills and hard work. God has a more perfect way. Choose it.
Matthew 23:10-12 (NASB) “Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Ras Robinson
August 23, 2016. Abraham was blessed because he believed God. Because he believed God, he obeyed, taking Isaac up on Mount Moriah as a sacrifice. Jacob, even though beginning as a deceiver, too had an encounter with God and was blessed. Jesus followed and obeyed His Father. The United States of America is blessed because it was founded for the purpose of obeying God to worship Him in freedom. No matter your beginning, believe Me, obey Me. Be blessed.
Genesis 22:16-17 (NLT) “This is what the LORD says: Because you have obeyed me and have not withheld even your son, your only son, I swear by my own name that I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies.” Bev Robinson
August 23, 2016. You are free to roam. Reject any notion that you have restricted access to all that God has for you. There’s nothing prohibiting you from receiving or understanding the deepest and most treasure filled truths laid out for you by the Father. All you need to do is prepare your heart through repentance and ask for revelation knowledge to come forth. Because you are a fellow heir with Jesus, all that is His is yours.
Ephesians 1:17 (NIV) “I keep asking that the God of our LORD Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.” Kevin Robinson
August 22, 2016. Is God calling you to something bigger and better but you are hesitating in accepting the call. Why? Could it be that you feel you cannot live up to God’s expectations? Surely you are not afraid of moving forward into unknown territory. God has never failed you. You just need to shake off your reservations and set your pace to run toward ultimate victory. You have been chosen. Now step forward.
Matthew 22:2-3 (MSG) “God’s kingdom,” he said, “is like a king who threw a wedding banquet for his son. He sent out servants to call in all the invited guests. And they wouldn’t come!” Ras Robinson
August 22, 2016. There is something you want; you want it badly. You can’t do it on your own. You knew that but my reminding you was good. Keep that uppermost in your mind during the coming days and months. Follow Me. Inquire of Me often. Stay in touch with Me. Pray with the mind and with the spirit. You will keep in touch even in your sleep. This will be a new experience and you will learn much.
Philippians 4:19 (NKJV) “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Bev Robinson
August 22, 2016. Excessive worry has begun to take its toll on you. Undue events have happened to you which have brought doubt and fear into your heart and mind. Even though difficult times have recently crossed your path, don’t allow worry and its remnants to eat you alive per se. Disclose your worry to the Holy Spirit, the one in whom you can confide to help alleviate the weight and burden you’ve been shouldering. Give Jesus complete access to your soul.
Philippians 4:6 (TLB) “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.” Kevin Robinson
August 20, 2016. Surely you’ve learned by now to avoid strife and quarrels. To pursue strife and quarreling is costly to your reputation and friendships. You may even damage efforts at peacemaking. Those around you would probably like to know you better and understand your life. Seek to engage in fellowship in such a way as to build up and encourage your neighbors. Take the initiative to mix and mingle with those whom God puts in your path. Learn to serve them.
Proverbs 20:3 (NIV) “It is to a man’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.” Ras Robinson
August 20, 2016. What is the right thing to do? You aren’t sure. You don’t know what is My will? You are even wondering if you know how to hear Me. There are a lot of things you aren’t sure about right now. There are so many things coming at you. It’s time to stop your mind from racing. Slow all your activities down as much as possible. Don’t worry you will know what to do at the right time.
Proverbs 19:2 (NASB) “Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, And he who hurries his footsteps errs.” Bev Robinson
August 20, 2016. Be known as one who gives rightful consideration to the words you use in every situation and circumstance. Just because you know the answer to a question doesn’t mean you are to blurt it out. Carefully weigh your words, because once they are spoken they cannot be taken back. Ask the Father what, when and how you are to deliver your speech. Let your words be as sweet as honey and smooth as oil.
James 1:19 (MSG) “Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear.” Kevin Robinson
August 19, 2016. Take good care of yourself. Give to others the best of what you desire and enjoy. It is acceptable to love yourself. The devil would say to forget about yourself because nobody loves you. It is a lie too quickly believed. He is the author of self-pity and depression . In so doing, he robs you of the abundant life Christ died to make available to you. Seek wisdom and understanding and reap for yourself love and soul prosperity.
Proverbs 19:8 (NLT) “To acquire wisdom is to love oneself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.” Ras Robinson
August 19, 2016. There was a big loss. Many people were affected. Time has passed and something you heard caused you to wonder if someone wants to regain what was lost. It would be good if what was lost could be regained. Many would be blessed. You are beginning to see what happened that initiated the loss. I will tell you what you need to do to bring success to the situation. Don’t listen to another voice. Hear only Me.
John 10:4-5 (NASB) “When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.” Bev Robinson
August 19, 2016. Take care of yourself. It is of vital importance that you tend to your own person as well as looking out for the needs of others. Many people tend to overlook themselves when it comes to proper care and maintenance. Though it may seem a bit selfish, it is not. Keep your body, soul and spirit well-nourished. How can you love others if you don’t fully comprehend the scope of loving yourself first?
Mark 12:30-31 (AMP) “and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.’ This is the second: ‘You shall [unselfishly] love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Kevin Robinson
August 18, 2016. Who is the bedrock of your faith? To whom do you look when the forecast is stormy? The LORD Himself is always with you and especially in the foundations of your faith. Do everything possible to protect and build a steady and sure footing. In this way you will be protected always against setbacks and disappointments. Sing when storms are predicted. Shout when lightening strikes. Snuggle up close to the LORD. He loves you so!
Psalm 18:2 (MSG) “GOD is bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight. My God-the high crag where I run for dear life, hiding behind the boulders, safe in the granite hideout.” Ras Robinson
August 18, 2016. The breakthrough has happened. Almost imperceptible but nevertheless it came. It is like a finger hole in a dike, but soon the hole will become larger and a trickle will come, then a stream and then a flood. Be thankful for the finger hole and then wait and watch. The breakthrough was spoken through someone you didn’t know. But I knew and I sent one who was a spokesman for Me. You have been faithful. Blessings are coming.
2 Samuel 5:20 (NASB) “So David came to Baal-perazim and defeated them there; and he said, “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim.” Bev Robinson
August 18, 2016. Let me encourage you to get to the place where you can totally lose yourself to your own wants and desires. Give heed to the voice of the One who calls you by name. Not long ago in the scope of time, you yielded to Jesus’ calling of your spirit to His. Continue in that pattern of relinquishing any rights you think you might have. Imagine what total abandonment and surrender would look like every day with Him.
Psalm 37:7a (GWT) “Surrender yourself to the LORD, and wait patiently for him.” Kevin Robinson
August 17, 2016. Keep your eyes upon Jesus because He alone is the Author and Finisher of your faith. You started out with Him and He wants you to end with Him in all His and your glory. Show Him you are not afraid to invite Him to keep His eyes continually on you. Think of it! Let Him see you. Invite His inspection of every single thing you do or say. Hide yourself under His cool wing feathers so you may soar to His heights. Let Him lift you into the heavens to fly with Him. You can do it!
Psalm 17:8 (MSG) “Keep your eye on me; hide me under your cool wing feathers.” Ras Robinson
August 17, 2016. Honesty in your dealings is the best way to go. Don’t let yourself be tempted to go any other way. There will be attractive temptations. Don’t give in. Honesty will give you a good name and a good name is better than great riches. People want to be connected to people with a good name. Your honesty will make a place for you. If you knew how much honesty vaults your position, you would never consider dishonesty.
Proverbs 22:1 (NASB) “A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold.” Bev Robinson
August 17, 2016. It’s always good to find relief in the midst of hopelessness. Your Redeemer lives and He is in the business of restoring order where chaos once held residence. Train yourself to look for a rainbow in the midst of a storm. In doing so, you will be reminded of the promise He gave after the great and terrible flood. Find a way to look at your difficult circumstances from the perspective of knowing He is in control.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (NIV) “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” Kevin Robinson
August 16, 2016. Pleasing the LORD should be your uppermost daily priority. Everything else can wait a bit. But it is in your best interest to put Him first. Some would argue that family is first. However, the blessings of the LORD will eventually reveal that God blesses those who bless Him. Make the decision now that when you awaken each morning, you will openly declare Jesus as LORD over everything concerning you. Jesus is Master of all.
Proverbs 16:7 (NASB) “When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Ras Robinson
August 16, 2016. You’re hitting a brick wall. It seems there is nothing you can do to get around it. Even though You are trying a different approach. It still doesn’t work. It has been like that for a while. Don’t give up; there is a way. Trust Me and I will show you something you haven’t thought of. At the right time we will see breakthrough together. It will be so rewarding you will be glad you didn’t give up.
Micah 2:13 (AMP) “The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the LORD at their head.” Bev Robinson
August 16, 2016. With God, you need to be able to expect the unexpected. You never know when you will need to fathom the unfathomable. Because of your upbringing and traditions of men, it is easy to see why you put God in a box. The funny thing is, He doesn’t like to be boxed in. Learn to think beyond what you can see or touch. God is full of all kinds of surprises, so prepare yourself to believe the unbelievable.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NASB) “but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” Kevin Robinson
August 15, 2016. In 2001, God had me on a massive garbage dump for a city in the Philippines of close to a million people. The dump was nasty and smoke was rising up. God used the eyes of a little girl, who lived in the middle of that, to tell me, “You will tell the story of these hungry and grossly impoverished children to help break their cycle of poverty.” The plan He established for me to obey was to tell everyone, everywhere about those children and their needs. I continue telling it today.
Proverbs 16:3 (NASB) “Commit your works to the LORD and your plans will be established.” Ras Robinson
August, 15, 2016. Something you heard you think is too good to be true. You wonder if you heard it correctly. If you aren’t careful, you can think it to death. Don’t think about it so much or you will end up not taking action. You don’t have to know all the details before you start. Take it and run with it. I will show you as you go. You will discover I know exactly what to do and when.
John 10:27 (NASB) “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;” Bev Robinson
August 15, 2016. God has made a beautiful melody for us to follow. The challenge now arises for us to make glorious harmony with one another in the song of life. Study your specific part and master it. Use your listening skills and capabilities to properly blend with others around you to make lovely music together. There may be times of difficulty when knowing what measure you’re to play. Trust God to blend you the best way.
Ephesians 4:16 (NLT) “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Kevin Robinson
August 13, 2016. A song was placed in your heart as you slept last night. It is in the air for you today. While you were sleeping, assigned angels ministered to you. I have given them full authority to assist and protect you. They prepared you to sing in your spirit over your problems and challenges. Sing, hum, whistle and shout what is in your heart. Let your voice be heard. Rehearse His blessings to you and show your gratitude.
Psalm 13:6 (MSG) “I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.” Ras Robinson
August 13, 2016. Part of what needs to be done is still ahead. It’s a big task and you need some help. Right now you don’t know who to ask. Ask Me. I know who you need. Trust Me and wait on Me. It won’t be a long wait so don’t worry. I know you need to be finished soon. I have someone in the wings who also needs your help. You will be working together and able to help each other.
James 1:5 (MLB) “If any one of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to everyone without reserve and without reproach, and it will be granted him.” Bev Robinson
August 13, 2016. When will enough be enough? Do not sit idly by and watch your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ get torn apart piece by piece by the evil schemes of the devil. Satan is forever on the prowl seeking weakened ones he can confuse and defeat. Be vigilant in helping others through practical means and manners. Intervene if needed when his onslaught is overwhelming. Help through practical efforts and diligent prayer. Be a person of action.
Nehemiah 4:14 (ESV) “And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the LORD, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.” Kevin Robinson
August 12, 2016. Focus on kindness and you will win the day. Some may take advantage of your kindness, but you have Jesus living inside you and you will have victory. Kindness is driven by the most precious thing of all – love, My agape love. Get beyond yourself and put others first. Selfishness and self-centeredness have to exit. They are incompatible with kindness. You notice My hand of grace upon you. Use it as My gift to you and 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, 2016. Everything is subjugated to love. There is no way you can know all of what I mean by that. Love is the most and lasting thing of the world. Even though you don’t and can’t know all of its meaning and how it works, I will show you as you go. At times you will believe there is no way you can love according to the situation, but if and when you rely on Me, you can.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NKJV) “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Bev Robinson
August 12, 2016. When studying the Bible, have you ever looked at it from the perspective of gaining interest such as you expect from any investment? Try to comprehend the notion of yourself making great strides in understanding, comprehension, and devotion once you get on a roll with personal Bible study. Dedication to studying God’s word brings great personal reward, which reaps great dividends. Revelation will come pouring forth from My throne room.
2 Timothy 2:15 (AMP) “Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth.” Kevin Robinson
August 11, 2016. When God calls you out, His reason is to bless you beyond anything you have experienced. In Scripture He says He is fixing a certain day for you called, “Today.” It is imperative that you not miss this vital moment in your prophetic “Today.” King David had such a day, called “Today.” There is also a “Today” waiting for you. He says further “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts” Listen to Him and obey!
Hebrews 4:7 (NASB) “He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.” Ras Robinson
August 11, 2016. I cannot impress on you too much how important it is for you to maintain a stance of thankfulness. I love you no matter what you do and how you behave, but you need the attitude of thankfulness. Thankfulness is the stepping stone to joyfulness. Joyfulness is an entrance to good health. Biochemicals course through your body all the time. Good biochemicals flood you when you are thankful and joyful. Joy engenders faith. Faith engenders health.
Philippians 3:1 (NLT) “Whatever happens, my dear brothers and sisters, rejoice in the LORD. I never get tired of telling you these things, and I do it to safeguard your faith.” Bev Robinson
August 11, 2016. Rejoice because you have reason to be happy. Your life has been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. There is no reason to walk about in gloom, despair or depression based upon whatever circumstances you may have faced or are facing now. Place your focus on Jesus, knowing He is much bigger and greater than anything crossing your path. Find joyful mindsets to celebrate your life with Him. Keep pressing on toward contented living.
1 Timothy 6:6 (AMP) “But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God].” Kevin Robinson
August 10, 2016. God said to me, “I AM about to bring a total roll over in your life . It is essential that it takes place in order for you to remain spiritually strong and powerful against the devil.” We see this in the rollover of the waters in deep lakes during the year. Water at the bottom of the lake is cold, heavy, dense and needs oxygen. God has designed roll over to bring oxygen to life forms.
John 10:10 (ESV) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” Ras Robinson
August 10, 2016. At one time forgiveness seemed elusive, but you didn’t give up. You kept forgiving time and time again every time the hurt popped into your mind. You are on your way to forgiving 490 times as Jesus instructed Peter not to forgive just 7 times, but 70 times 7. Peter had questioned Jesus on how many times one must forgive. By the 490th time, if you need that long, you will have forgiven from your heart and that is your goal.
Matthew 18:21-22 (ESV) “Then Peter came up and said to him, “LORD, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.” Bev Robinson
August 10, 2016. Timing is very important in the scope of how things are delivered. At the perfect time God the Father sent His Only Son Jesus to the world for redemption of lost souls. So too, you’ve been sent by God the Father to redeem the time and space for people all around you. Wait patiently for God’s timing for you to be obedient with your words and deeds by prophesying what He is saying now.
Psalm 27:14 (NLT) “Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” Kevin Robinson
August 9, 2016. August is a time of intense heat where we live. Activity slows to a crawl. Most people realize there is no point in resisting the heat. Instead they seek shade and air conditioning. Some run away to the mountains for cool temperatures. It is a time of reflection on the year’s activity. Public and private schools are preparing to start a new school year. There is safety and reprieve in the stronghold of the LORD. Once again God shows Himself to be our refuge and safe place. The oppressed seek understanding and comfort.
Psalm 9:9-10 (NASB) “The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble; and those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.” Ras Robinson
August 9, 2016. A large portion of time will soon be available. It will come completely with no expectations. You will ask, there is much to be done so why is it coming now? You will wonder what to do with so much time. You’ll think: I’m not used to having so much available time. You will learn how to use unstructured time wisely. Don’t waste time. Use it My way. You will ask Me how and I will show you.
Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 (ESV) “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;” Bev Robinson
August 9, 2016. It is perfectly fine to have a good cry every once in a while. It is important for you to stay in touch with your emotions. It is vital to your well-being for you to identify what matters lie at hand and what triggers the overflow of tears. Never be ashamed of crying. However, be careful that your emotions don’t get out of control. Trust Me with everything.
John 11:35 (NIV) “Jesus wept.” Kevin Robinson
August 8, 2016. A brand new thing from the LORD awaits you. He has big plans for your future to bless and multiply you. The things you have desired to do for mankind on God’s behalf are now ready to be activated. He is giving you a road through the wilderness of this world. God is now preparing rivers in the desert to enable you to traverse the sand and terrain of the near impossible journey ahead.
Isaiah 43:19 (TLB) “For I’m going to do a brand new thing. See, I have already begun! Don’t you see it? I will make a road through the wilderness of the world for my people to go home, and create rivers for them in the desert!” Ras Robinson
August 8, 2016. Peace is what you’re seeking. You would give anything to get it. You want it so badly you cry at night and tears well up in the daytime when you think of your circumstances. You will have the change you need, but right now it isn’t happening. You’ve done what you can do to make it happen, but now it is not up to you. Set your mind hard, like hooking a big fish, on things above.
Colossians 3:2 (NASB) “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.” Bev Robinson
August 8, 2016. Opportunity is knocking on the door of your heart. Give a hearty yes to what you know is the truth. Your own spirit is bearing witness with the Holy Spirit’s gentle yet firm witness of what He hears the Father saying. Much like the words which were spoken by the angel to Mary, do not be afraid of the goodness I AM bringing. Don’t try to conjure up something Instead, wait patiently for His knocking.
Revelation 3:20 (NLT) “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.” Kevin Robinson
August 6, 2016. Now is barley harvest time where we live in Texas. The huge fields sparkling with barley grain are amazing to see. Now is the time for gathering the blessing while it is available. Very soon, the window for harvesting will be over. God’s desire is to bless you while the season is at hand. Harvesting God’s goodness and generosity assures that you indeed are chosen and blessed. Seek God for His miraculous sign.
John 6:14-15 (NLT) “When the people saw him do this miraculous sign, they exclaimed, “Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting! When Jesus saw that they were ready to force him to be their king, he slipped away into the hills by himself.” Ras Robinson
August 6, 2016. An unexpected event is in the making. Something you have done in the past and is now dormant. It was something you enjoyed and something that brought others pleasure. A side effect was a boost in their faith. This event will cause people to sit up and take notice of their own lives. They will ask themselves, “Am I using my life for the benefit of only myself and my family, or am I reaching out to help and love others?”
Matthew 22:37-39 (NLT) “Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Bev Robinson
August 6, 2016. Do not be apathetic about apathy. It is easy to fall prey to the crippling effects of indifference. It can and will affect your daily walk with Jesus. At first it starts out small and seemingly unnoticed. Apathy can destroy the most passionate and enthusiastic of believers. Christians who slowly have let their spiritual guard down can fall captive to this debilitating disease. Do not allow any dispirited or lethargic mindsets near your camp.
Romans 12:11 (NIV) “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the LORD.” Kevin Robinson
August 5, 2016. Being loving and kind only to your friends is no different from how the world relates to people. We are called to walk a different path, one that follows the example of the way Jesus walked. The Christian faith should be loving and accepting of all people. Yes, we love our friends, but we are also to love our enemies, strangers and those from other races, cultures and standards of morality. Love one another, fulfilling the Gospel of Jesus.
Matthew 5:47 (NLT) “If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.” Ras Robinson
August 5, 2016. Years ago I was healed of a brain tumor. When I began having headaches and memory loss, before I went to the doctor I claimed, Proverbs 10:7 (NASB) “The memory of the righteous is blessed” The day the doctor told me I had a brain tumor I had read earlier that morning, Proverbs 10:6 (NASB) “Blessings are on the head of the righteous” I knew God would heal me because of what I had read in His word. God asks, What are you believing Me for?
Hebrews 10:38 (NASB) “BUT MY RIGHTEOUS one shall live by faith; AND IF he shrinks back, MY SOUL has no pleasure in him.” Bev Robinson
August 5, 2016. When you are given the opportunity to jump into action regarding your faith and good works, do it. Strongly consider giving some practical help to those who are in need of assistance. Let My light shine within you by going above and beyond what seems appropriate and obvious at the moment. Do not let excuses get in your way when it comes time to putting action to your faith. Let My tenderhearted love and compassion be displayed.
Matthew 5:16 (NLT) “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” Kevin Robinson
August 4, 2016. It is time to get gut honest with God about your life and lifestyle. Do you and have you always acknowledged His sovereignty over your past, present and future. Or do you take credit for the successes, healings and accomplishments? God is merciful and omnipresent at all times. He knows all truth about you in the past, present and future. Wise is the one who will yield all pride and personal sovereignty. Yield and obey.
Psalm 4:1 “Answer me when I call to you, O God who declares me innocent. Free me from my troubles. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.” Ras Robinson
August 4, 2016. What happened in the natural realm will soon happen in the spiritual realm. This is a way that I show you ahead of time what is going to happen. The purpose of what you see is for prayer. I alert you ahead of time what is coming down the pike and I have given you the power to bind the bad and loose the good. Keep watching and do what I say.
1 Corinthians 15:46 (NASB) “However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual.” Bev Robinson
August 4, 2016. Understanding patience and walking in and with patience are two totally different approaches to the same issue that baffles almost everyone. You are not alone if you do not comprehend all of the intricacies pertaining to the elusive fruit of the Spirit. Trust Me to allow you the graces to gather and keep patience and all that it entails. Let Me guide in how to walk in the arena of patience in all your circumstances.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Kevin Robinson
August 3, 2016. You said you had forgiven the one(s) who hurt you? But without the help of Christ, you can only forgive in part. Years ago I was confounded by someone who desperately wanted to forgive a severe injustice, but remained tightly bound to unforgiveness. Even after prayer for them, they remained bound. I asked the LORD for help. He said, “This one can forgive only through Me.” That person chose to forgive through Jesus and was completely set free.
Matthew 18:32-34 (NLT) “Then the king called in the man he had forgiven and said, ‘You evil servant! I forgave you that tremendous debt because you pleaded with me. Shouldn’t you have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you?’ Then the angry king sent the man to prison to be tortured until he had paid his entire debt.” Ras Robinson
August 3, 2016. I AM One who blesses. I bless abundantly . You can have a part in increasing your abundant blessings by giving and sowing. When you give or sow anything, what you give or sow will multiply and return to you more than was given or sown. Look for ways to give and sow. Keep your mind open to giving. When a grain of corn is planted, it produces ears of corn with multiplied grains. Plant in good soil.
Matthew 13:23 (NLT) “The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” Bev Robinson
August 3, 2016. Take the necessary steps to keep yourself in alignment with God’s word. Instead of being compliant with the world around you and the trends which keep tugging and clamoring for your attention, be firm in your faith by adhering to the promises God has laid out before you. Be intentional at keeping your heart and mind on the course God has placed you on. Stay on track, not veering to the left or right of His course.
Isaiah 30:21 (NIV) “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Kevin Robinson
August 2, 2016. Wisdom is not biased about who has it nor who practices it. It is like a stream of the purest of water. The pure water is good and refreshing while it quenches your thirst. Impure water causes diseases when consumed. Make every effort to cleanse and purify your water supply. You know already how powerful is the pure clear word of God. When His word goes forth, it never returns void or stripped of its purpose to change lives.
Proverbs 2:6 (NASB) “For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Ras Robinson
August 2, 2016. An awareness has come that someone is trying to take another one’s place. This one thrives on competition and is quietly competing. It has slowly dawned on you what is happening. You are in a place of authority and can do something about this. There is no need to take the bull by the horns. All you need to do for now is stand in the gap. Action may be required later. Trust in Me. I will lead you.
1 Peter 2:1 (NLT) “Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech.” Bev Robinson
August 2, 2016. There’s no need to wait for a specific time to get into a position of reigning in this life. Too often, people think they have to wait until they get to Heaven in order to properly rule and reign. You’ve been given My power and authority to reign victoriously over whatever circumstance you face. Embrace your rightful position as My fellow heir and reign accordingly.
Romans 5:17 (NIV) “For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!” Kevin Robinson
August 1, 2016. Having a good and beautiful wife who is still exciting as the girl of my dreams is more than I deserve. She is an anchor and faithful encourager I could only dream of having. She is truly priceless to me. Many, if not most, of my life achievements were inspired, encouraged and motivated by her. God has blessed us to parent together two children, four grandchildren and nine great- grandchildren as the cherry on my chocolate sundae. Hallelujah God.
Ephesians 5:25 (NIV) “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” Ras Robinson
August 1, 2016. Your mind is now going in the right direction. It wasn’t, but you turned. Your body will follow your mind and you will continue following Me. You are calling out to Me and I will continue responding. I will download big doses of wisdom. Take one day at a time and continue doing what I tell you. Stay grounded in thankfulness. Let words of thanksgiving flow and watch what happens . You will first be pleasantly surprised then absolutel astounded.
Psalm 26:7 (NASB) “That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving And declare all Your wonders.” Bev Robinson
August 1, 2016. Be known as a person who takes definitive action. Talk can be cheap in regard to getting things accomplished and being one who does what they say they will do. It is time to get the ball rolling and time to get things on the move. Be a promise keeper and one who stands by and behind their spoken word. Set the example unto Jesus Christ as one who conducts themselves in a godly manner and behavior.
James 1:22-24 (NASB) “But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.” Kevin Robinson
