January 31, 2014. Every time you come to Me I smile. You didn’t know that did you? I want you to remember this. Let it sink deep into your psyche. Let it warm your soul. You ask, Lord every time? Even after I have done something wrong or acted like a stinker? Yes every time, my precious one. Sometimes you repent immediately and other times you don’t do it until revelation comes. I know your heart and I know your desire to always do the right thing in all circumstances. This makes Me smile.
Job 33:26 (MSG) “Or, you may fall on your knees and pray-to God’s delight! You’ll see God’s smile and celebrate, finding yourself set right with God.” Bev Robinson
January 31, 2014. You delight in godly spiritual connections. The happiest times in your life and family have been those where Jesus is the glue and the grease that connects and lubricates those spiritual connections. Christians have the potential to be the happiest and most loved people around. Do not allow yourself to get or stay disconnected from Christ’s body. You have gained the wisdom to know that being and staying disconnected is not God’s way. To refuse connection with authentic born again believers is not right. Commit to being an ambassador of love and acceptance.
Ephesians 4:15-16 (NASB) “But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.” Ras Robinson
January 30, 2014. In one particular thing begin weaning yourself off of what your eyes see and what your ears hear. Instead start training yourself to see and hear what I know about this situation. This will require faith, precious one, and you are growing in discernment and faith. Live more in the spiritual realm than in the natural realm. Do what I say and you will see things you never thought possible. I am the God of possibilities. I am the God of faith. I am the God who blesses you.
Matthew 13:16 (AMP) “But blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are your eyes because they do see, and your ears because they do hear.” Bev Robinson
January 30, 2014. Mind your mouth. You really don’t want to be a motor mouth do you? Only fools talk incessantly, adding more details to simple things than the ear can process. There was a time when you measured and minded your words. What happened? It is almost as if you just enjoy the sound of your own voice. Hold back on your words until you are convinced that you have heard God speak. Repeat, yes repeat, what He has said. In this way, you will be minding your mouth through holding your mouth to account. I love you.
Ecclesiastes 5:2 (AMP) “Be not rash with your mouth, and let not your heart be hasty to utter a word before God. For God is in heaven, and you are on earth; therefore let your words be few.” Ras Robinson
January 29, 2014. A fresh start has begun. This is very good. Don’t now rethink what you started. Don’t look back or wonder if the timing was right. Don’t look to the right or left to see if anyone else heard and is doing what you are. Keep your eyes on the path before you. What you began is right. You don’t see all the factors that enter in, but don’t let that deter you. I know the end from the beginning. That’s why I said “start.” Trust that I called it forth.
Proverbs 4:25-27 (NASB) “Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet And all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.” Bev Robinson
January 29, 2014. “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, that my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever” (Psalm 30:11-12 (NASB).
I awakened one day spiritually to realize that my world was crumbling right before my eyes. Until that moment of discovery, I had testified to people and given thanks to God almost daily of how good things were. And they were actually good.
Twelve years ago, I had triple by-pass heart surgery. Last fall I had five stents inserted in two different arteries requiring two surgeries only two weeks apart. The anesthesia twice in such a short time was a bit of a challenge at my age to overcome, but God came through for me. During all growing older adjustment, I have been advised not to climb ladders and to stay off elevated structures of all kinds. This was new and very hard to accept because I’ve always been able to physically do just about anything I wanted. But I did comply to the instructions
All of this has resulted in an increased load on my wife Bev. She really puts a huge amount of work into Christmas decorations. Because of this, our house is really gorgeous during the holidays. But it is a lot of work and I did not help as I should have done.
In a discussion about it, tears were shed and unfortunate and untimely words were spoken by both of us. Both of us were emotionally devastated following the “discussion.” We took a “time out” for a couple of days and said little to each other.
During the “time out,” I began to remember the good things and to feel pressure in my soul that I had not done my part to help Bev. As I prayed, I was solidly convicted to send her an email, to be followed by a verbal discussion, apologizing without any expectation of how she might respond. Well, she responded graciously and with forgiveness and mercy. All is well now to the glory of God. I have the best wife in the world. She always has been and always will be.
When I got out of the driver’s seat and off the throne of my life, the Holy Spirit took over with conviction, repentance and humility. He turned my mourning into dancing, removed my sackcloth and filled my heart with praise and thanksgiving for my wife and family.
Try it the next time you find yourself in a “discussion” about something that needs to be handled. – Ras Robinson.
January 28, 2014. There will be big problems ahead for you if you don’t stop. I want you to do more than confess your sins to Me. Confessions are very good. But this time I want you to do more than confess. The sin continues to pop to the surface and is not good, either for you or for others. Now you need to take some action. Confess to someone who loves you, someone who has shown in the past they can keep a confidence. Now precious one make yourself accountable.
James 5:16 (AMP) “Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” Bev Robinson
January 28, 2014. You are drawn to understand the Bible. Your hunger for God’s truth is about to be satisfied. Embrace My Bible and hold it close to your heart. Pray and ask for a way to install and activate My word so that you are approved as one of My workers with no shame. When you were born again, I wrote upon the tablets of your heart. My goal for you is that you will speak as I speak and do as I do.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NASB) “Be diligent to present yourself approved by God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”
In that one verse, we can learn truth that will change minds and mountains. I want to break it down simply for you.
One of the churches I oversee has a pastor with grown twin boys. Both boys attained to rank of Eagle Scout. I was invited to the occasion of their being honored because of that accomplishment. The ceremony was to certify that they had crossed all the “t’s” and dotted all the “I”s” for becoming Eagle Scouts. Now they have the honor that many great leaders in America have. They all graduated as Eagle Scouts.
How about you? Would you like to attain the level of being an approved workman for God? Frankly, I can remember exactly where I was when God dropped it into my heart that I could attain to being a skilled and convincing workman for God in the Scriptures. It was on Briarwood Drive in Nashville, TN. I was a young man and God told me that chilly Saturday morning that the Bible was like an Owner’s Manual for my new Volkswagen. He said “Knowing and applying My word is necessary to get the most out of your Christian life and to show others the way.” Below are some things I learned and am still learning.
Taking the “key words” of 2 Timothy 2:15, we find that those key words become the key to efficiency in living God’s word. Let’s start.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NASB) “Be diligent to present yourself approved by God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”
Diligence. In the Greek, the simple meaning of diligence is diligent, earnest or eager. Be diligent to read and study the Scriptures. Ask many, many questions as you read. Look up words you don’t understand. Don’t stop until you are satisfied that you know what God is saying in a verse. Also find out the context of culture in which this verse was written. What was the overall picture that makes up the truth God wants you to know?
Gaining God’s Approval. A serious disciple of Jesus wants to please God and gain His approval. Embrace with the emotions of your heart what it means to be approved by God for His will and purposes. You are presented daily to Him to make sure you are showing the attributes He desires.
Approval by God. Your aim is to present yourself approved by God. In the Greek, it means to accept or receive. Proved, receivable, tried as are metals by fire and thus are purified. Sometimes that approval comes as a result of trials by fires of adversity and difficulty.
Doing that which is honorable brings a person real approval, as distinguished from only seeming to be approved. A workman needing not to be ashamed is approved unto God.
Being God’s workman. Firemen, policemen, military soldiers all wear uniforms. That uniform says they are authorized and empowerd to carry out their assignments. Those called and anointed by God are sent as soldiers, ambassadors, evangelists, pastors and all included in the five-fold ministry. You and I are included here. We are God’s workmen, sent to complete an assignment. Study, prepare and serve as one who need never be ashamed. You want others to see you as blameless as you do God’s will so very well. Settle in your heart that you are not to be ashamed as a workman approved by God and anointed for His assignment.
Accurately handling the word of truth. Be one who accurately handles the word of truth. In the Greek, that means to handle correctly and skillfully; to correctly teach the word of truth.
Join with me in seeking to make God proud, very proud to call us His approved workers. Enjoy your study and rejoice greatly. – Ras Robinson
January 27, 2014. What you have been hoping will go well will go much better than you imagine. I know this is big to you, but do you know it is also big to Me. You haven’t thought about that before. Think about it now. You aren’t on your own. You have Me in you and beside you leading you at every step. You are prepared and what is even more important you have lived this. The living of it impresses others that you know what you’re talking about. They will follow us.
Matthew 28:19-20 (MSG) “Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Bev Robinson
January 27, 2014: Many people today are struggling to make ends meet. Others are knocking on the door of hopelessness. If only you could find the sure path of God’s will and success, you would gladly walk that path. Right?
What if you found out that the path was someone, rather than a physical roadway? That Someone is Jesus who is the incarnate, resurrected and ascended word of God. You know God loves you and promises to bless you. God makes a way by and through His promises found in His word. He is ready daily to show you the proverbial goose that lays the golden eggs. Wise is the one who will fill his or her mind with the will and intentions of God. In finding His will, promises and directives, you are assured of success and prosperity in the Lord. Want to try it?
It was not easy being the son of a sharecropper. There was little to encourage me that my life could be blessed with success and prosperity. God’s path for me turned out to be a man sent from God. He told me that Jesus had a plan for my life to make me to be someone special, to have a great purpose and destiny.
My mama daily read her Bible, making notes in the margins. My parents gave me a Bible and I began to do the same. I later found out that every word in the Bible is true:
“For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” Romans 15:4
Believing in my heart the Scriptures to be true, hope began to arise and faith started springing up.
I have always been afraid of failure. Combine this with a steady fear of abandonment and you have a young man needing hope and encouragement. My encouragement came in this promise from God to ME:
“No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you” Joshua 1:5 (NLT).
– Ras Robinson
January 24, 2014. A fresh start has arrived. Yes, I know my mercies are fresh every morning and freely you can partake of them, but this is different. You have a new start to something which is old, something you did a long time ago. But when it began feeling mundane you drifted away. This is not altogether bad because you did something else I was leading you to do. But it is time to begin again with the old. It has been there all along waiting for you. My Word never changes and it never returns void.
Psalms 119:105 (NKJV) “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Bev Robinson
January 24, 2014. What a wonderful miracle occurs when you align your mouth with your heart. Always know that your Rock and Redeemer is listening to what you say. Think of the words that flow so freely when you speak. Often, little thought is given to the right words and phrases that can and should change the world about you. Oh how at times you wish you could find a net to capture the words you did not really mean to say and, return them to your negligent soul for cleaning by the Holy Spirit. More than anything, your words are to be acceptable to your Maker. Please Him and all the rest will fall into place. Peace will reign supreme. And when this occurs, fill your mouth with purified words of praise and adoration. Top it all off with joyful thanksgiving.
In this way you will be literally training your soul as God’s revelation comes through, from the Holy Spirit to your spirit. Think of it like training a child to grow from drinking only milk to eating soft food to solid food and eventually to eating meat. The young child needs the milk, but milk by itself is not a healthy diet for an adult. God wants His believers to be strong and healthy soldiers and warriors. The enemy of the saints is strong so the saints must be taught, trained and receive on the job direction and supervision. In this way, they will be God’s giants in the land. The healthy church is to be full of spiritually powerful disciples of Jesus.
Go to boot camp if you want to become an effective soldier. Do not duck out of the difficult exercises. Face and conquer each obstacle . In my book camp experience as a young man, I crawled under barbed wire for a great distance. I climbed obstacles that seemed impossible and much, much more. But when I graduated from boot camp, I was tough, strong and full of confidence because I had withstood the pressure. Go to God’s boot camp.
Start tomorrow morning (or evening is that is better for you). Fill your eyes with His word. Allow those words from God to then penetrate deep into your heart. Read some more and some more. Pack His word in your heart so deeply and completely that it has to overflow from your mouth and lips. Keep it up, keep it up and keep it up.
You will please your Rock and Redeemer, King and Lord. Please Him!!! Speak His words and change the world.
Psalm 19:14 (NASB) “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.” Ras Robinson
January 23, 2014. Fill your eyes, heart and mouth with My word and I will give you eternal life, prosperity and deliver you from destruction. Most believers have little to no idea the power of God’s word on their lips when it is spoken in faith, believing. Father God wants to fill your eyes with His word to the point that the wisdom and power of His words penetrate and flood your heart to overflowing. You will speak from that which fills your heart – the dynamic word of God. First your eyes, filled with committed discipline of reading and meditation. Next, your heart is continuously stimulated and activated to beat in rhythm with God’s heart. Finally, faith words find expression from the lips of your mouth that are consistent with what God has quickened.
Angels are waiting for your words that they may obey them and carry them out to reality. God has empowered these angels to do the work you cannot do. Your role is to keep your eyes full, your heart teeming and overflowing and your mouth speaking words of life right from the heart and will of God the Father.
Deuteronomy 30:14-15 (NIV) “No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.”
Psalm 103:20-21 (NIV) “Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.” Ras Robinson
January 23, 2014. Judgments are hiding in your heart. You don’t want to speak them and you are right. It isn’t good to speak them, but you need to get them out of your heart also. One day when they have piled up too much to bear, they will come out of your mouth with an explosion that will surprise even you. Let Me have them before they become destructive to anyone, even you. Precious one, when you become aware of what is happening, confess all this to Me and return to peace.
1 John 1:8-9 (NASB) “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Bev Robinson
January 22, 2014. Are you totally innocent of all wrong doing? Are you living in a state in which you are free from guilt or blame? Maybe you feel as though you are impeccable and without fault in the situation you face. Even if it is so, we cannot use our innocence to justify not forgiving one who has wronged us.
Have you ever unwittingly or unintentionally hurt someone? The hurt is the same whether intentional or unintentional. Even if the wrong done is truly unintentional, you still have to ask for forgiveness.
The Lord says today, “Matthew 5:23-24 (NIV) “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.”
Until you have resolved the issue of forgiveness and unforgiveness, you are spiritually stymied and have put both yourself… Ras Robinson
January 22, 2014. Stretching is coming. You will first feel like you can’t do this. But relax. Don’t tense up. When you relax, after a while you will see and feel this is really good. You will wish you had done this earlier. I see you are learning earlier to trust Me. You are operating in faith that I would never do anything that would smack you on your blind side and leave you in a lurch. This pleases Me. You will see in the long run how My grand design is to bless you.
Hebrews 6:14 (NKJV) “saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” Bev Robinson
January 21, 2014. Sunday morning worship service is often riddled with worshipers contaminated by unforgiveness. Unforgiveness is destroying the church, our families and our nation. Surely we as believers in Christ will not sleep this one out and wake up one day to find ourselves angry and hating one another! The Lord speaks, “Wake up church, families and body of Christ. See the truth. Jesus set the example for us as He died on the cross and forgave those who put Him there. No subject was stronger in his heart than to command us to do as He did and “forgive those who wrong us for they know not what they do.”
People are leaving our churches in droves. Thousands enter the church week in and week out, but within weeks or months, they leave because they find no solution to their pain, their anger, resentments and unforgiveness.
Jesus looks down from the cross with fresh blood on his face, down his side, dripping from his hands and feet. He says to us this day “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” He paid, through His suffering, the full price for us. He forgave us and says for us to forgive and ask forgiveness. He could not have made it more plain: “Forgive them. Ask their forgiveness. Resist revenge and retaliation. Remember, what goes around comes around.”
Matthew 6:12-15 (NASB) “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.”

January 21, 2014. There are things in your future for which I want you to exercise your faith. Because of that, there are two routes from which you can choose. You can go the way of speculation or you can go the way of discernment. Discernment is good and from Me. Speculation is not good and its wisdom is not from above. Speculation ends in disappointment. Discernment, if followed, ends in My plans for your future. Your future is blessed and anointed. When speculating you end up either in grandeur or failure. Instead discern.
Proverbs 4:1 (AMP) Hear, my sons, the instruction of a father, and pay attention in order to gain and to know intelligent discernment, comprehension, and interpretation [of spiritual matters].” Bev Robinson
January 20, 2014. I know you are in uncharted territory. You haven’t been at this particular place before. This is why you are to walk closely with My Spirit. He will show you the pitfalls and obstacles. Trust in Him. He is on the earth and within you to show you exactly what to do. You think what you say is going work and it will if you say the right words at the right time. My words. My way. I am teaching you something that you have not learned before. Listen. Obey.
Psalms 19:14 (NIV) “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Bev Robinson
January 18, 2014. I know it’s not fun to be corrected. It sometimes hurts your feelings. But you would be wise to receive correction especially from your authorities. They know more than you because they have experienced more, and they don’t want you to fall into the same pits they or others have fallen into. Correction and instruction are for your good. Don’t resist. In fact if you are wise you will seek correction and instruction. I learned obedience from the things I suffered. Likewise you will be stronger if you will receive correction and instruction.
Philippians 2:5-8 (NASB) “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Bev Robinson
January 17, 2014. I know you have chosen to forgive something hard. This is good but only the first step. I see hurt still there. Don’t keep rehearsing in your mind what happened. Keep choosing to forgive every time the incident comes to mind. This will eventually cause forgiveness to drop into your heart. One day you will look back on what happened and there will be no hurt attached. When you can remember the incident with no hurt bubbling up, you have forgiven from your heart. Precious, walk in forgiveness.
Matthew 18:21-22 (NASB) “Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.” Bev Robinson
January 16, 2014. You are about to forget who you are, and in some areas, you have totally forgotten. Stop and think. Bring to mind the things of the past when you have been the happiest. It is when you were loving Me with all of your heart and loving others as yourself. You’ve quit loving yourself, so you have quit loving others. Get out beyond yourself. You are harder on yourself than I am. Stop some things that aren’t good. I have created you for good works. They are right before you.
Ephesians 2:9-10 (NLT) “Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Bev Robinson
January 15, 2014. An unexpected blessing is coming. It’s on its way and will be a complete surprise. You knew something was needed, but short of it costing a fortune you didn’t know how to go about getting it. You haven’t worried or fretted and this is good. This is a result of something bad which happened. I turn things which are bad into things which are good when you continue following Me. You will eventually see that there is nothing for which you should worry or fret. I love you precious one.
Romans 8:28 (NASB) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Bev Robinson
January 14, 2014. There is something you have secretly wanted for a long time. Do you want it even if I don’t want it for you? I want you to think about this. Think about some things you did regardless of what I wanted. I want you to want for yourself what I want for you. I have always wanted what is better for you than you wanted for yourself. I know you better than you know yourself. When you want what I want, you’ll be greatly blessed.
Psalms 37:4 (AMP) “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.” Bev Robinson
January 13, 2014. The attitudes of others are affecting you a great deal more than they should. It makes you want to get away from it all. You can’t always do that and you especially don’t need to do it now. You need to stay right where you are and learn more about handling things as they come. The way you can do this effectively is to draw yourself into Me. I am a strong tower. I am your place of refuge. I will quieten your soul and show you what to do.
Proverbs 18:10 (NASB) “The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous runs into it and is safe.” Bev Robinson
January 11, 2014. At times things get too much to handle and this feels like one of those times. Slow down and collect yourself. Draw in your thoughts. Don’t let your mind wander into the “what ifs.” Slow down your actions. I know there are things that must be done because a lot is going on. But much of it is out of your control. Get yourself into a familiar routine that requires as little creative thought and without as many problems as possible. Think on past victories. Precious, I will make a way.
Isaiah 43:2 (MLB) “When you pass through the waters I will be with you, and when through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you go through fire you shall not be scorched; or through flames, you shall not be burned.” Bev Robinson
January 10, 2014. Anger is about to get the best of you. Don’t stay on the track you’re on or anger will beat you. First take a right turn and then take another right turn. That will give you a 180o repentance. Doing it in steps will make it not so hard. You don’t see how this can all work out but with the 180o view you will see. Don’t worry about it until you get there. You desire to obey Me. I know your heart. You were attacked without reason. Don’t return the attack.
James 1:19-20 (NASB) “This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.” Bev Robinson
January 9, 2014. You knew there would be a test, but you didn’t know when. You are prepared so don’t fret it. The test is not to trick you in going back to something that is not good for you or others, but to promote you into another level of maturity. Maturity is evidenced by your level of service. It is not to make you feel high and mighty. Remember you surrendered to believe in Me and to live a different life. This life is about taking up your cross. This life is about faith and blessings.
Hebrews 11:5-6 (NASB) “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Bev Robinson
January 8, 2013. Yes, I know there is something going on that can cause you big time worry. But you aren’t going to worry, precious one. This delights Me. You are learning that worry does not help at all. In fact it will bring harm to your mind and body. In the natural you can’t do anything about this problem anyway. In the past you’ve started and fallen back, but not this time. You are denying yourself and following Me. What you can do is pray and speak what and when I say.
Mark 8:34 (NASB) “And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.” Bev Robinson
January 7, 2014. You feel you were unjustly treated. You were. This is not the first time it has happened. It’s a fact. There have been other times judgment was made. So what do you do now? You know what to do. It remains to be seen if you will do it. Do it precious one. Don’t fall into a pit that will be hard to come out of. That takes time and energy. Remember you have been here before. Forgive. Yes. Forgive again and let Me handle the situation. Don’t take revenge.
Romans 12:19 (NASB) “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord” Bev Robinson
January 6, 2013. Look through my eyes . It isn’t about what you see. It’s about what I see. What you see is not bad. It just doesn’t have the whole scope of what is needed. This is why you wait on Me. My ways are higher than your ways. Wait until you see from My point of view. You make decisions on what others can do for you. Make decisions on what you can do for them. That’s My way . When you do this, you help them and they help you. All are blessed.
Isaiah 55:9 (AMP) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Bev Robinson
January 4, 2013. You are a good and faithful learner. You study and explore the Scriptures. In prayer you keep digging until you find the vein in the rock that is filled with gold and silver. Do not settle for the best thing you can think of. Instead, ask of Me and I will show you great and mighty things you know not of. Open your mind to explore and study so that you may be among the cutting edge of My will and purposes. Follow closely and you will go far.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” Ras Robinson
January 4, 2014. Let Me establish your schedule. Right now it seems there is more to do than you can get done by the time it must be done. I know what is coming and I know the importance of activities better than you. Don’t allow yourself to get in a dither or what has to be done will be in jeopardy of not being done well. It isn’t as bad as you think. You will see once you start. This is going to be a lot smoother than you think. Trust Me.
Psalms 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
January 3, 2014. No more orphan spirit for you. God has declared to you as He did to Jesus that you are his son/daughter. Furthermore, He has become your Father. What could be more exciting than to be told by God that you are His child? Perhaps one more thing. God has become your Father. Being your Father, He then is responsible for you in every way. He protects, provides, nurtures, guides, heals and delivers you from the devil. You are blessed beyond words that God has become your Father. Celebrate it.
Psalm 2:7 (NIV) “I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” Ras Robinson
January 3, 2014. Good is ahead. It is hard to think right now of the possibility of good happening. The reason is you don’t want to get your hopes up and then they are dashed. Disappointment happened earlier and you don’t want it to happen again. The way you can keep it from happening again is to give Me your whole heart and place your trust in Me . I always have better for you than you can imagine. It may not seem at first like good is happening, but believe Me precious, I cause good.
Romans 8:28-29 (NASB) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;” Bev Robinson
January 2, 2014. You have been baptized into the favor and peace of God’s presence. His uncompromising love and acceptance envelops you. He has given you an abundance of peace to walk in the glory of God. It is as if you walk around in a bubble of glory. It should remind you daily that you have been chosen and anointed for this hour and season. God is anointing you like a warm blanket to comfort the hurt and lonely. Picture yourself in the winter season as having many warm blankets to share. You are sharing those blankets as from the Lord Himself.
Luke 2:14 (NIV) “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Ras Robinson
January 2, 2014. Don’t get ahead of yourself. You are considering making a decision without thoroughly thinking it through. You are tired of a decision lingering so long and just want to get it done. Wait. Consider carefully the cost of an expedient decision. Don’t let your tiredness of this going on for so long cause you to choose something you will regret later. I know you are frustrated with what others are doing that slowed down the process. You’ve heard the saying that two wrongs don’t make a right. This is a true saying.
Luke 14:28-29 (MSG) “Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it? If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish.” Bev Robinson
January 1, 2014. A new beginning for this New Year. The Lord has new wine available for you with a new wineskin. It is good to delight in the new. Some cannot accept the new, preferring to stay with the old. What they fail to recognize is that the old they prefer was once new. If those preferring the old today had not received the new when it came, we would have wasted wine today. In fact, you are the new wineskin, made ready for the new wine. Embrace the new beginning on this first day of a New Year.
Mark 2:22 (NLT) “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.” Ras Robinson
January 1, 2014. A blow has hit your head. Its purpose was to knock you out. And you were out for a time. But the devil has overplayed his hand. My purpose is for the blow to be a wakeup call. Now get yourself grounded in faith. Whatever it takes get your mind focused on My purposes for your life. Listen to what I am saying. Sing My word. Read My Word. Think about My word. Fill yourself with My word. Good things are coming and it will be a blow to the devil.
Romans 8:28 (NASB) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Bev Robinson
