February 28, 2017. For years, when I don’t know what to do and I don’t seem to be able to hear from God, I do something so simple it sometimes seems rinky-dink. I read the Proverb that corresponds to the day of the month and the Psalm that does the same. There are 31 proverbs, but 150 Psalms which enables the opportunity to read 5 times as many. I add 30 to the date and can read 5 of the Psalms.
Proverbs 28:26 (NLT) “Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe.” Bev Robinson
February 28, 2017. It’s time to reassess the spiritual and emotional position of where you are. You and others have begun to notice a pattern within you that is leading you toward a negative frame of mind. You have become increasingly more pessimistic concerning many issues you encounter. Of late, there is little to nothing positive that comes from your mouth. Examine yourself and be honest with your appraisal. It’s time to become unpolluted with God’s disclosing truth.
Luke 6:37 (MSG) “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults-unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier.” Kevin Robinson
February 27, 2017. There are those who thought it would never happen. You are one of them who has doubted from time to time. But the time is soon coming when what you thought would not happen will happen and will amazingly happen. From time to time, you doubted, but for the most part you have believed. When things became increasingly unbelievable, instead of entertaining unbelief, you became increasingly full of faith. You believed. I saw your heart and peace. Rewards will soon follow.
Hebrews 11:6 (ESV) “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”Bev Robinson
February 27, 2017. For too long now, you have settled for a substitute instead of the genuine article. There are many added extras that are jockeying for your devotion. Rather than accepting the facsimile of your heart’s desire, choose nothing less than the original. Keep Jesus enthroned in your life regardless of what the world dictates, pushing through its smokescreen. You are worthy to receive nothing short of the very best God has to offer. Always make the better choice.
Exodus 20:3 (NKJV) “You shall have no other gods before Me.” Kevin Robinson
February 25, 2017. I know you don’t like change. There are others who also know you don’t like change and Satan uses this against all of you. Embrace change when it is the best. Otherwise you will be stuck in a position you won’t like at all. If you will tell Me the fears you have with change, I will help you. It’s okay. I know exactly what is going on and will prepare you. Instead of fears, you will experience successes.
Joshua 1:7 (NLT) “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do.” Bev Robinson
February 25, 2017. There is no reason for you to be afraid. First of all, God did not come to bring any sort of fear into your midst. Reject any notion of doubt, unbelief or reservation concerning things of the Spirit. Deep down in your soul, you know there is more, much more, to your everyday Christian walk, right? Be obedient with the smallest of matters and step over your man-made thresholds, thus propelling yourself into righteous living in fullness.
Ephesians 3:18-19 (NLT) “And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”Kevin Robinson
February 24, 2017. “Blessings are on the head of the righteous” and “the memory of the righteous is blessed” are two verses on which I stood when claiming healing from a brain tumor in the 80’s. After I was healed, the doctor wrote a letter for insurance stating the tumor was there and later could not be found. Many prayed for me. When I received the words from Proverbs I knew it was a done deal. What word can I stand on with you?
Proverbs 10:6a-7a (NASB) “Blessings are on the head of the righteous, … The memory of the righteous is blessed.”Bev Robinson
February 24, 2017. Allow the dust to settle from all the commotion which has just happened. Right now people around you are in a critical place. There is bit of uncertainty with all that has transpired and, even now, emotions are heightened to new levels you have not seen before. God is definitely in the midst of this storm and He, along with you, can bring a calm to this particular season. Let Jesus usher in peace and tranquility.
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
February 23, 2017. Everything is right on schedule. It seems like events are moving very quickly. It’s true that events are happening faster than they once were, but the fact is all are going at the right speed. Because of all the technological advancements, events are much the same, but the speed of communication has increased. This is one of the main reasons to stay in touch with Me I say what and when and you can keep up by following Me.
Psalm 17:5 (NLT) “My steps have stayed on your path; I have not wavered from following you.”Bev Robinson
February 23, 2017. Let a big dose of genuine humility come to the forefront of your dealings with the band of warriors who have joined in the spiritual conflicts against you. Envision the look on the face of your adversary when he sees your attitude of humility, which he himself didn’t attain. Refuse to let foolish arrogance steal your blessing. Openly make the choice to exhibit humility. Gracefully humble yourself just as Jesus Christ did for you.
James 4:6-7 (NLT) “And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Kevin Robinson
February 22, 2017. A decision needs to be made soon. Do investigations into the many choices, but don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed by the many. Pray all the while. Trust Me and I will show you the way to go. I know what will make a long lasting pleasing decision. Don’t get sidetracked into going another way. There will be a temptation to make a quick decision. Don’t do it. Listen to Me for years of satisfaction.
Judges 18:5-6 (NKJV) “So they said to him, “Please inquire of God, that we may know whether the journey on which we go will be prosperous.” And the priest said to them, “Go in peace. The presence of the LORD be with you on your way.”Bev Robinson
February 22, 2017. You’ve reached a whole new and profound level of absurdity you did not think was possible. Things have gotten way out of sync and out of control, so much so that now others are being dragged through the mess you are in. Be of good cheer. These tough times won’t last indefinitely. It has taken time to get to this point and there isn’t a quick fix. Take proactive steps to rectify these difficulties right away.
Psalm 55:22 (AMP) “Cast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail).”Kevin Robinson
February 21, 2017. Don’t judge. You don’t really want to. You have the Spirit of God dwelling in you and He doesn’t judge. Don’t push it past Him. Surrender to Him. Yes, He will let you choose whether or not to judge, but He is limited by your choices. God has made it that way, because He loves you so much. He has given you freedom to make choices, all the while desiring and leading you to make good choices. If you judge you will reap judgment.
Luke 6:37-38 (NKJV) “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”Bev Robinson
February 21, 2017. Be specific about the things you want from your Heavenly Father. It’s true that you have all you need according to His riches in glory, but in the present and near future, be bold and specific in your requests down to the smallest details. Write your requests down and watch Him fulfill and grant your wishes beyond your wildest dreams. Keep your primary focus upon God, His sovereignty and His awe-inspiring capability to love beyond measure.
Psalm 37:4-5 (NKJV) “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” Kevin Robinson
February 20, 2017. The faint taste of fear is in your mouth. Don’t entertain what may happen if everything being tried doesn’t work. When you are tired is often when negative thinking occurs. Your enemy is at work. Others are also tired. You need a change. Do something different. Look for a place where you can get some deep God rest. You will see a definite hope and faith that will get you through.
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.”Bev Robinson
February 20, 2017. Let kindness be the mode for how you conduct all of your everyday relationships. Let the Jesus you know be the Jesus to which everyone can attest, because of His impact upon your life. Jesus has demonstrated countless times His unending kindness over to you, right? May kindness be your overflow of an appreciative heart. Kindness and thoughtfulness go hand in hand. God is always thinking of you with kindness. You be kind too.
Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV) “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”Kevin Robinson
February 18, 2017. The right path is before you. You are continually seeking Me, which brings Me pleasure. It will bring you immeasurable rewards in the long run. Yes, you will be rewarded. You believe that I am specifically involved in the smallest details of what is going on in your life and in the lives of others with whom you are connected. That is true. Keep believing it and you will see good things you have never seen.
Hebrews 11:6 (NLT) “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Bev Robinson
February 18, 2017. Are you able to recognize Satan’s propaganda? Train yourself to decipher anything that is contrary to who God says you are. Make a habit of admitting out loud who I have made you to be. In doing so, you will have trained yourself to recognize anything contrary to God’s truths. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, confess who Jesus is and appreciate His rewards. Let God’s facts, certainties and realities differentiate between Satan’s falsehood. Transform your convictions.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Kevin Robinson
February 17, 2017. I AM the one who loves you more than anyone. There is no one who loves you like I do. I know you enjoy love with other people. I made you that way, but don’t look only to others for love. Look mainly to Me. Take the time for building relationship with Me. Remember that I AM the best Father in the world. I AM the most supportive Brother you can find. I AM the best guiding Teacher of all times.
Romans 8:31-33 (NLT) “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one-for God himself has given us right standing with himself.” Bev Robinson
February 17, 2017. Besides Jesus, are you patterning your life after someone who is spiritually significant? Search high and low to find an individual who emanates the Christian walk, someone who is sold out to Jesus in every aspect of their living. Look for individuals who are meek and humble . It is exceptionally important to find someone who submits willingly to authority. Don’t complicate the simple. Simplify the complicated each day. Live in a way that pleases the Father.
Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”Kevin Robinson
February 16, 2017. The real blessing is that you are following Me. I know you don’t know what to do or how to do it, but you do know how to follow Me. You are a good listener. You listen with your spirit. Keep doing that and You will succeed. Keep on listening. Keep on asking. Keep on seeking. You will know what to do and how to do it. You don’t have to know everything just where to go to find out.
Luke 11:9-10 (NKJV) “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Bev Robinson
February 16, 2017. Get in the habit of praying applicable scripture. You can even use Google to find scripture that fits your need. Use God’s word specifically and accurately to address whatever need arises. Use whatever tools are necessary to address what is going on in the here and now. You often feel you don’t know how to pray. It would be good to pray a scripture that has caused you to experience hope and faith in a specific revealed word.
John 15:4 (NLT) “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”Kevin Robinson
February 15, 2017. What is before you could be a problem, a big problem. That is, if you let it. Don’t let it. Stay on top of what is happening. Keep informed. Don’t allow the other demands you have overshadow what is happening here. If you will do this, if you will not let this lag, you will be so pleased at the results. All the way through the process, trust Me to show you and protect you and yours.
Psalm 31:19 (NLT) “How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world.” Bev Robinson
February 15, 2017. Trust your gut. The Holy Spirit, who has taken up residence within you, gives you foreknowledge of situations before they actually happen. Fine tune yourself to move upon the signs He gives. Stay ahead of circumstances, way ahead of time. You know the Holy Spirit guides you into all truth, right? Accept Him spot-on and respond to what you hear the Spirit saying within your innermost being. Move with confidence.
Galatians 5:25 (CJB) “Since it is through the Spirit that we have Life, let it also be through the Spirit that we order our lives day by day.” Kevin Robinson
February 14, 2017. A time of rest is ahead for you. You have kept your head down working. Your work has been good for you and great for the benefit of many others. Now is a time for your reward. You have done what I called you to do for years. Your faithfulness is an example to many. You have inspired faithfulness to many people. Don’t entertain any guilt at all. There is no room for guilt. Beloved, you deserve this.
Matthew 25:21 (ESV) “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” Bev Robinson
February 14, 2017. Will you give Me the opportunity to give your present-day world a makeover? You have, by this time, sensed within your spirit the divine transformation which is in the works. By now you are recognizing the change in the natural and the spiritual realms. It is as if the handwriting is on the wall now, as it was with King Belshazzar and Daniel. Look and see the supernatural happening rapidly before you.
Isaiah 43:19 (NLT) “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Kevin Robinson
February 13, 2017. It’s a load off of your mind. Without really realizing it, a load has been lifted. It crept up on you slowly and you didn’t realize the burden. Don’t worry about it. Instead praise Me. You have done well. I have been working on it for quite some time and now it has happened. Adjust your time and energy accordingly. Let others who will be affected know and give them time to adjust their plans and energies.
Galatians 6:2 (NLT) “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.” Bev Robinson
February 13, 2017. Don’t let misfortune lead you into self-pity. You may be experiencing a string of bad luck and a season of disappointment. Regardless of what your circumstances are dictating, know that a positive outcome is in the works. Difficult times come and go like the rising of the sun. Nevertheless, push through all of the hardships, knowing full well that God is ordering your steps for His glory and splendor. Expect God.
James 1:2-4 (NASB) “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”Kevin Robinson
February 11, 2017. The first disciples of Jesus were properly trained and prepared for the difficult assignments from Jesus. His method of gaining access to their hearts, in the new job they had been given, was to warn them that hard and dangerous best described the pending realities. More difficult still was Jesus giving them an assignment to become shrewd and to appear as innocent as doves. These disciples became the original apostles for God’s church. God may be giving you a difficult assignment. Be both shrewd and innocent.
Matthew 10:16 (NASB) “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.” Ras Robinson
February 11, 2017. Do whatever you can do to maintain the unity. I know Many of you don’t think alike; you come at solving a problem from different points of view, different backgrounds and different understandings. That isn’t bad. In fact it is good, very good. These are grounds for a solid solution. For a while it will cause something that feels a lot like confusion and failure, but keep talking with respect for each other and you will come to the state of blessed oneness.
Psalm 133:1-3 (ESV) “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.”Bev Robinson
February 11, 2017. You’re showing signs of fatigue and lethargy more frequently. You battle times of being worn-out even after you’ve had ample rest. You wonder why exhaustion shows up so frequently in your life. You struggle with staying alert when poignant messages from God are being conveyed. Could it be that a slumbering spirit attached itself to you? Let God rouse your spirit to new life in Him. Let God awaken you through His power and strength.
Revelation 3:2-3 (NIV) “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.” Kevin Robinson
February 10, 2017. You have been given the same authority as Jesus gave the original disciples. His authority focused on getting rid of the unclean spirits. He recognized that unclean spirits did not come from the Heavenly Father, but from the father of lies, the devil. After casting them out, He healed all the diseases they had placed within the people. After the unclean spirits were cast out, all diseases and sicknesses had to leave. You have that power now.
Matthew 10:1 (NASB) “Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.” Ras Robinson
February 10, 2017. The reason why something is happening will soon be revealed. You have rolled it over and over in your mind many times. This is not causing a problem, but you know it would be better if you knew why. Wanting to know why is a desire you have had many times. I put that desire in you. It has brought you many blessings and will continue. You will understand why and will walk in great anointing.
Proverbs 2:2-5 (NLT) “Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of God.”Bev Robinson
February 10, 2017. Being forgetful time and time again can be aggravating to you and others. As simple as it sounds, be practical and train your mind to overcome your forgetfulness. Instead of moping around aimlessly, put a plan into action. Write down your thoughts so you can recall non important events as well as important events. Imagine what your world would be like if the writers of the Bible had not established their discipline of writing inspired thoughts. Be proactive.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NOG) “Then Yahweh answered me, “Write the vision. Make it clear on tablets so that anyone can read it quickly. The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie. If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late.” Kevin Robinson
February 9, 2017. Most teenagers come to a place in their lives wherein they must carefully choose whom they will allow to guide them. They could be viewed as pawns on the devil’s chessboard in that he seeks to control them by exploiting their weaknesses. Contentions and jealousies are persistent evil forces fighting to control them through fights and quarrels. Desiring to resist authorities who seek to guide them, confounds and confuses them, leaving little peace of mind.
James 4:1 (GW) “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Aren’t they caused by the selfish desires that fight to control you?”Ras Robinson
February 9, 2017. Right now you don’t feel like you have anything to say concerning what is ahead. That makes no difference, Beloved. Don’t allow any doubt or fear to come in your mind. Keep believing and keep receiving. What is needed and wanted will come. You will be amazed at what happens. I started some time ago. Recently there has been a lag in understanding and activity. If you keep going without wavering, you will see a great harvest.
2 Chronicles 15:7 (NLT) “But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded.” Bev Robinson
February 9, 2017. Consider your efforts of warfare in this fast moving 21st Century. Yes, the weapons of your warfare are specifically mentioned in Ephesians 6:10:18, but are you implementing those specific armaments via emails, texts, and social media? Take note of the interruptions which occur when your spiritual onslaught occurs through cyberspace. Step up the intensity of your combat on the information superhighway through a virtual reality you know not of. Let divine revelations kindle your mobilization in heavenly places.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NLT) “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.” Kevin Robinson
February 8, 2017. The coming of Jesus, the Messiah, brought the grace of Jesus to believers in Christ. It relieved the burden of believers in Christ from having to fulfill the law. It began a new day for believers. They simply receive God’s gift to know that faith in Christ plus grace to make room for God to restore His children to the love and acceptance promised. This love and acceptance becomes an open door to experience all of God.
Romans 8:1-2 (MSG) “With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.” Ras Robinson
February 8, 2017. If you allow yourself to get caught up in what is happening, it won’t be long before you’ll be sorry. It will be tempting because you will think you can help. But don’t let that kind of thinking entice you. You can’t help. Some things will have to play themselves out. So much has gone on that you know nothing about. Don’t try and fix things. Back off. Let those who really know handle things.
Job 18:8-12 (NASB) “For he is thrown into the net by his own feet, and he steps on the webbing. A snare seizes him by the heel, and a trap snaps shut on him. A noose for him is hidden in the ground, and a trap for him on the path.”Bev Robinson
February 8, 2017. Do you ever feel like you are being disciplined by God over and over again? Does it seem like you keep going around in circles, ostensibly going nowhere? Realize that not receiving God’s discipline in your life would indicate that He is unloving. Don’t let God’s discipline lead to resentment and bitterness within you, thus stealing your contentment. Embrace God’s correction as a means of establishing your walk after Himself. May repentance be synonymous with your lifetime behavior.
Hebrews 12:5-6 (NLT) “My child, don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you. For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”Kevin Robinson
February 7, 2017. There is something to consider as a top priority: “Do not be conformed to this world.” Instead “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” It is a waste of your time and energy to seek the world and the way it operates as the pattern of life you prefer and seek. The transformation you really seek is for your mind to be made new. This means the departure from worldly, fleshly and demonic events led in life by the ways and means of Satan.”
Romans 12:2 (NKJV) “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Ras Robinson
February 7, 2017. Look around you. Observe the peace. That is what you need. Listen to the sounds of peace. Listen to the quietness in the midst of the activities that are going on. I know you want to exhibit peace. I know you want to exhibit love. You can do this. Change your mind and attitude to show forth ways you have exhibited peace and love in past times. Remember the ways you rose beyond your circumstances. Beloved, do this again.
Ephesians 4:3 (AMP) “Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.” Bev Robinson
February 7, 2017. Be careful of the amount of time you spend in the company of individuals with whom you are associating. Yes, there is always the issue of witnessing to lost souls, but lingering with people who tend toward adverse nay-saying can and will eventually have a profound effect on your soul. Learning to say “no” to yourself, and to people who can adversely impact you, can encourage you in your desire for godly living. Make precise, clear-cut and righteous choices regarding the company you keep.
1 Corinthians 15:22 (CEV) “Don’t fool yourselves. Bad friends will destroy you.”Kevin Robinson
February 6, 2017. True believers in Christ have great authority over unclean spirits. They can cast them out of those invaded by them. Do not hesitate to do this as God directs you. He wants you also to heal every kind of disease and sickness. When the elders of your church unite in these causes, all who witness it, will know it is God’s power working through the believers and the church. Ask God to anoint you for such a ministry.
Matthew 10:1 (NASB) “Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.”Ras Robinson
February 6, 2017. Keep pushing through. You don’t have to go at a speed beyond which you are comfortable, but keep on a steady pressure. Before you know it, things which need and all that must be done will happen. Don’t let up. Certainly, don’t give up. I know it is not the most exciting thing you will do. I know it will take some commitment that you haven’t had to have, but it’s necessary for you to keep going.
Psalm 37:5 (AMP) “Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.”Bev Robinson
February 6, 2017. Taking your thoughts captive is often easier said than done. Concentrate your attention on God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. Though they are one, each has attributes unique to their nature, just as you have characteristics exclusive to you and you alone. Be selective and exclude and discard those opinions which conflict with the Trinity’s nature. Fix your eyes and focus your complete attention upon their specific qualities not your issues.
Colossians 3:2 (NLT) “Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.” Kevin Robinson
February 4, 2017. Love covers a multitude of sin. It even defeats hatred and disdain in your heart for people you try to love. Love is always the way out of contentions. Peace with God and man makes the heart of the LORD very happy. His name and mission are to love people which includes those who persist in sin. Your love must be redemptive. No transgression is too great to be redeemed by love.
Proverbs 10:12 (AMP) “Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions.”Ras Robinson
February 4, 2017. Events that should be going forward have not. In fact they have gone backwards. This is very disappointing. Don’t lose your cool. Stay in the Spirit. There is a reason for this. It isn’t evident and you may never know all of the reasons why. But losing your peace is not the way to go. Do what you can to help all stay at peace. I have reasons that you don’t know about. Keep my ways.
John 14:27 (NASB) “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”Bev Robinson
February 4, 2017. News flash! As you already know, information overload is happening at break-neck speed. In the natural, you are receiving information much quicker than you ever imagined even ten years ago. Now you know about matters within minutes or seconds via technology. God has positioned you specifically, strategically and pleasingly right now to receive His insight and intelligence now. Prepare yourself for instantaneous heavenly initializing. It’s as if you knew this word was coming before you read it!
Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) “For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Kevin Robinson
February 3, 2017. Here is what I will do for you. Whereas I will not protect you from all the arrows aimed by Satan, I will assure your victory over him. You are my prized possession, destined to eternal victory over Satan. I will invite you into My stronghold and great fortress, through which the devil cannot break. You are not the possession of the devil. Decide now to study your enemy closely and how to defeat him.
Psalm 3:3 (NLT) “But you, O LORD, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.” Ras Robinson
February 3, 2017. Keep your eyes on the goal. Don’t let your commitment lag. Do what must be done first. Get it behind you, but don’t get into a rut of thinking that what must be done is unimportant. It is really the most important. Other things will fall into place after you have done what is most important. You are setting yourself up for blessings to tumble in. Keep your doors open to what is ahead. Abundance is coming. Get ready.
John 10:10 (AMP) “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” Bev Robinson
February 3, 2017. The wrath of God is being re-kindled like a white-hot flame. God is stoking the embers of His all-consuming fire. Yes, He is loving, but His love is jealous. Nothing shy of your recognizing Him as your all-in-all will satisfy Him. His tolerance for anything short of you having Him as LORD will not suffice. Don’t negate or misunderstand His fury and anger as something only in the Old Testament. Repent. Be satisfied with God’s passion.
Romans 12:9-11 (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. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the LORD enthusiastically.” Kevin Robinson
February 2, 2017. Great freedom yields the opportunity to serve and bless your brothers and sisters for the purpose of helping them be free. Your freedom is not just a right to be exercised. It includes courageous expression of God’s love to others. Freedom is a clear channel for the expression of your calling to love others. Surrender your heart to be given full power to share your love.
Galatians 5:13 (GW) “You were indeed called to be free, brothers and sisters. Don’t turn this freedom into an excuse for your corrupt nature to express itself. Rather, serve each other through love.” Ras Robinson
February 2, 2017. Make praying a lifestyle. Make talking to people about Me a life style. Make asking what I want a life style. I know you want that. Deep down you want that. But sometimes you get fearful that you will mess it up. I will be setting up instances where this lifestyle can happen. If you miss an opportunity, don’t worry. I’ll bring it about again. This lifestyle helps others and also engenders a close relationship between us.
Romans 8:38 (NLT) “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.”Bev Robinson
February 2, 2017. Ineluctable. A new word to add to your vocabulary. It means inescapable, unavoidable and inevitable. God, your Heavenly Father, wants you to grab a big hold of how much He loves and adores you. Today, of all days, He wants you to know that you cannot go anywhere to escape His wonderful and magnificent affections. Reject any notion of worthlessness hurled at you by Satan. You are worthy to accept every form of warmth He presents. Receive truth.
Psalm 139:7-10 (ESV) “Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.” Kevin Robinson
February 1, 2017. Believing God is a key step to receiving all that God has promised you and all He has in His heart for you in the future. This kind of blessing comes as promised, but under certain conditions. He wants to see a pure and dedicated heart that He can trust. He can work through that person to change the world. It will not be a grandstanding approach, but rather one of believing and receiving. All this comes because Psalm 1 confirms the truth of it.
Psalm 1:1 (AMP) “BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.” Ras Robinson
February 1, 2017. The word I gave many years ago has been stirring freshly within you. You haven’t forgotten the word. You haven’t doubted the word or dismissed the word. In fact it is as strong or stronger within your spirit as it was the day I gave it. Be on the alert. The devil doesn’t want this word to come about, because not only will it bless the one about whom it was given. It will bless many.
Isaiah 55:10-11 (NASB) “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” Bev Robinson
February 1, 2017. What will be your reaction to God’s action in your life? Will you acknowledge His presence in whatever way He decides to present Himself? Much like Newton’s Third Law of Physics which says “for every action, there is an equal (in size) and opposite (in direction) reaction force.” God is searching for individuals who will respond instantaneously to His voice. God is the initiator and catalyst to get things moving, be the catalytic agent to facilitate His marvelous ways.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV) “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” Kevin Robinson
