January 31, 2015. In this New Year, you will experience both a Sabbath Rest and a Year of Jubilee. You have worked hard in this life to provide, protect and to parent. Many times you have endured an intensity of physical and spiritual labor to facilitate and maintain peace among your families. There have been many, many prayers and intercessions for your larger and extended family and nation. Now Jesus has provided for you a Sabbath Rest. You need to take it and thrive in it. This New Year will be for you a Year of Jubilee. Make the most of it.
Genesis 12:3 (NLT) “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” Ras Robinson
January 31, 2015.A breakthrough, a big breakthrough is coming soon. You have almost given up hope, because this hard thing has been going on so long. You’ve considered no longer trying to believe for good in the whole matter. What you are going through causes real discomfort and forgetting it is hard to do. Instead of trying to get away from it, every time you feel discomfort let this be a reminder to keep believing. I haven’t forgotten you. I have been working behind the scene. I know this is a sizable problem. But a respite is on the way.
Ezra 9:8 (AMP) “And now, for a brief moment, grace has been shown us by the Lord our God, Who has left us a remnant to escape and has given us a secure hold in His holy place, that our God may brighten our eyes and give us a little reviving in our bondage.” Bev Robinson
January 31, 2015. Guard against delusion. Don’t have a mistaken notion that you are doing the word when you are only hearing the word and not doing what it says. Don’t delude yourself. Instead examine yourself truthfully and then let Me examine you. Is what you know purely head knowledge or have you put your thoughts and words into actions? Be known as a doer of My word. Become and stay active as a true Christian and consistently exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. Can others identify you as a Christian by your fruit?
James 1:22 (NIV) “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” Kevin Robinson
January 30, 2014.You have recently experienced the death of someone very important in your life. Grief and sorrow have flooded your emotions and memories. You are recalling history you share with the one who passed. Now you can ask the Lord for His comfort and get His wisdom in dealing with this loss. He has many things to bring to your attention to help you and others affected by this. Do not waste the sorrow you feel while looking for ways to honor and glorify the Lord. Joy is on the way.
Psalm 30:5 (NASB) “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning.” Ras Robinson
January 30, 2014. What you need is encouragement. But you don’t feel like you are getting what you need. Don’t allow yourself to slide into self- pity. Self- pity is a downward hole which is hard to get out of. Do whatever you need to get yourself going upward. You have to see to it that you break free before it gets bad. Get in the word. Thank Me. Get outside. Take a walk. Take a drive. Get around people who are cheerful. Take care of yourself like you take care of others.
1 Samuel 30:6 (AMP) “David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.’ Bev Robinson
January 30, 2015.It would serve you well to align yourself constantly with My word. Use My word as the standard by which you conduct yourself in daily affairs. The world around you has tried to rid itself from the principles I established with Moses. The effects of deterioration and decay concerning morals are evident all around you. Though I have fulfilled the law, you will do well to adhere to those principles for a lifetime of peace, harmony and understanding. Position yourself underneath My Lordship in everything you do.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV) “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Kevin Robinson
January 29, 2015. Above all things, you should desire to please your Heavenly Father. Likewise, to the extent that you can, you would be wise and prudent to please your earthly father (and mother). If you have not done this or if you are not doing this now, start this moment with a pure heart to love your fathers (heavenly and earthly). Be sure to forgive where there has been failure, hurt or hard feelings. Give reasons for your fathers to delight in you and your soul. Blessed are you when you do it.
Proverbs 29:17 (NASB) “Correct your son, and he will give you comfort; He will also delight your soul.” Ras Robinson
January 29, 2015. A lot is going on, almost more than you can handle. Step back. Take a fresh overview. There is time for what must be done, but some of what is making you feel overwhelmed are extraneous things. Put them aside until there is more time available. Rank in order what must be done. I’ve called you to rest and to walk in peace, but a part of rest and peace is taking the time to get things aligned. This will cause your heart to be peaceful and full of thankfulness.
Colossians 3:17 (NIV) “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Bev Robinson
January 29, 2015.Portray love in the fullest sense. More than that, see to it that you act upon what you know is right and true. When a brother or sister stumbles, make the conscious effort to cover their misstep or calamity. Too often some are quick to pass judgment over what they perceive to be the cause for the stumbling without knowing the whole story. Whenever you have been tripped up in some form or fashion, all you desire is compassion and understanding. Be about covering and bearing up one another in their weaknesses.
1 Corinthian 13:7 (NASB) “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Kevin Robinson
January 28, 2015. You catch yourself from time to time thinking how incredibly blessed you are by God and the body of Christ. Actually, you can have that exhilarating feeling every day. Commit yourself to fixing your eyes day and night on Jesus. God created you for such a day as today. No one is standing in your way. Run forward and get a front reserved seat before the Lord Jesus. Catch His smile. Hear His clear voice and breathe in His anointing. Ask for a seat next to Jesus and occupy it.
Hebrews 12:2 (NIV) “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Ras Robinson
January 28, 2015. I had a dream that broken glass was on the floor and people were walking on it. Some got glass in their feet and were taken to the doctor. The doctor put salve on the wounds and said the wounds weren’t bad, not to worry the glass would work its way out. Some complained and tried to pull the glass out anyway. The Lord says, “You’re worried about something impeding your walk. It isn’t as bad as you think. Keep walking. Don’t fret. I’ll heal you as you go.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (NASB) “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.” Bev Robinson
January 28, 2015. Refuse to allow your spiritual walk with Me become sedentary. Make the conscious decision to remain spiritually energetic. Constantly challenge yourself to encounter Me within every part of your being. If My word is quick and active, and indeed it is, you also are quick and active. Your mind is sharper than you realize. You are able to remember Scripture quickly when it is needed. Apply yourself to My word diligently, pursuing Me as your foremost prize.
Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) “For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” Kevin Robinson
January 27, 2015.You are responsible to the Lord for spreading the joy of His presence. He is coming again soon. Until then, we rejoice that our hope is in Christ as His crown of rejoicing covers us. His presence illuminates you. This is in order that you may spread the word of His presence with your spiritual brothers and sisters . In doing so, you become His glory and joy. Therefore, greatly rejoice and be glad. Fill the place where you are with His glory and joy. Wear gladly the crown He gives you.
1 Thessalonians 2:19-20 (KJV) “For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? For ye are our glory and joy. Ras Robinson
January 27, 2015. This is a day to rejoice. I know nothing comes immediately to your mind to rejoice over, but rejoicing is something you need. Thanksgiving and rejoicing opens doors to blessings that are just waiting to hear your voice. Rejoicing blesses Me but it blesses you too. It is good for your mental and physical health. Think of the smallest things like being able to take a breath. Fill your mind with thanksgiving. I know there are things which try your soul. Rejoice anyway and watch what happens.
Philippians 4:4-5 (MOFF) “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, ‘rejoice.’Let your forbearance be known to everyone; the Lord is at hand.” Bev Robinson
January 27, 2015.Be careful not to desensitize yourself from the world in which you live. Be on guard to keep from becoming numb to My heart of love and compassion. It is easy to become calloused to the needs of others, even those right in front of you. Do you remember the story about the blind beggar man in Jericho? When I entered the city, I was able to hear the heart cry of that desperate individual above the noise of the city. Don’t allow your heart to become hardened or deaf to a world in dire need of Me.
Matthew 25:45 (NLT) “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.'” Kevin Robinson
January 26, 2015. You have experienced an insult. It was a strong rebuke and delivered hurtfully to you. You tell yourself you are strong enough to let it go without offense. And now upon reflection, you see wisdom in just staying calm so that the pain of it will dissolve away. This is a growing time for you. God has told you to work on relationships so that more peace and joy can be manifested. You have now learned that a quick-tempered person can be a tempted to become angry and wounded. Be wise.
Proverbs 12:16 (NLT) “A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.” Ras Robinson
January 26, 2015. Something feels different. You’re not sure why because nothing in the natural has changed . In the natural this change is not discernable. Don’t stop your normal routine, but stay alert to the enemy. Don’t give him any extra attention but be aware out of the corner of your eye. Keep Me in the center of your eye. Keep your ear tuned to me. Protection is yours. Multiplied blessings are coming down the pike to you and yours.
1 Peter 5:8-9 (MSG) “Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith.” Bev Robinson
January 26, 2015. You have an important role in the affairs of others around you. Though you may feel somewhat insignificant, you can know that your approach on daily matters has a vital impact upon others. With that being said, it is essential for you to live a righteous lifestyle. Let your actions, mannerisms, gestures and speech be a standard others can imitate. Be about living a lifestyle of excellence and righteousness. Model Me in all things. Always remember you’re directing others toward Me.
John 14:6 (NASB) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Kevin Robinson
January 24, 2015. “Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative” is a line from a Bing Crosby musical years ago. God speaks wisdom for good relationships in so many ways. He wants all to live in harmony and peace. Avoid offenses of every kind. Choose in advance every day to refuse being offended. Do not spend your life being offended. Keep the conversations positive and avoid the negative. Choose to put smiles on faces. Love as God loves you.
1 Peter 3:9 (NIV) “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” Ras Robinson
January 24, 2015.A new day has begun. It won’t feel very different at first. But the further you go there will be more evidence to show that this day something good hit the ground. You have prayed and prayed and prayed some more. Today is the beginning of the fruit bearing time. You wondered if this time would ever come. I was working in the dark behind the scenes. I began working the first day you started praying, but on the surface it appeared no better. Today the answers to your prayers begin to be manifested.
Daniel 10:12 (NLT) “Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer.”Bev Robinson
January 24, 2015. “Wishy washy” might be a term by which others recognize you. Some see you as being hesitant, indecisive and uncertain. In a manner of speaking, stop straddling the fence. Decide now to lay aside your fears and rise up to the reigning Christian state you know is attainable and yours for the taking. You can make the choice to keep looking back at what might have been. Or you can move forward with full reliance on Me through obedience and sacrifice. Follow my lead. Yield to Me as Lord.
Revelation 3:15-16 (NIV) “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Kevin Robinson
January 23, 2015. Take pains to insure that only fresh water of the word comes from your spring. Your spring is the supply of words you speak to build up, stir up and cheer up. Test your spring often to make sure it has not become salty. Fresh water from the Holy Spirit brings life and joy. But bitterness mixed with your fresh water makes the spring not useful until it is made fresh again. Even swimming pools need regular checkups to correct the water quality. Humility demands that bitterness be removed.
James 3:12 (AMP) “Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine figs? Neither can a salt spring furnish fresh water.” Ras Robinson
January 23, 2015. Follow through with what I said. You have spoken what I said many times. This is good. It is exercising your faith. But don’t stop there. There is more to do than just speaking. You have to do what I said, for obeying Me completes the circuit of faith. Look at Abraham your father in the faith. I spoke to him over and over of his destiny. He finally believed. He then completed the circuit of his faith by the obedience of taking Isaac up the mountain. You do the same.
James 1:22 (NIV) “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” Bev Robinson
January 23, 2015. At times during prayer you have drawn complete blanks concerning what to pray. It is as though you have nothing to say at all. Instead of worrying about the seemingly large gap in time, focus completely on Me and the situation at hand. I never said the airspace needed to filled with words. The prayer time is about time with Me and directing your thoughts and concerns toward My will in all things. Wait patiently for My guidance. The time is about getting in agreement with what I have established.
Romans 8:26 (AMP) “So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.” Kevin Robinson
January 22, 2015. Someone needs golden apples from you today. Most mornings, I enjoy an apple with my breakfast. They are delicious, refreshing and nutritious for my body. Carefully chosen words spoken at the right time are like giving golden apples to someone. To those who hear those words, they are delicious, refreshing and nutritious. People long to hear such words. You can give powerful and life changing words to them because the Lord has anointed you to deliver them. Serve up some golden apples today.
Proverbs 25:11 “A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”Ras Robinson
January 22, 2015. The battle has been long and fierce. You have been on the brink of giving up. The situation seems to be going down no matter what you do or how much you believe. Your faith was high at first. But now you don’t see how this can come out in victory. I am sending you help. One purpose of My Body is to bear one another’s burdens. My royal law is the law of love. You will experience this love and be strengthened. Don’t give up. Victory is coming.
James 2:8 (NIV) “If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.” Bev Robinson
January 22, 2015.You have had repetitive thoughts that trouble you at times. Instead of worrying about from where those points of view come, redirect your belief structure toward Me and My ways. Flood your mind with My word. Search for and meditate on specific scriptures to combat and replace improper belief patterns that are harassing you. Know Me and incorporate My word into every aspect of your existence. I will encourage you and give you hope. Establish a doable, achievable plan of study within your capabilities. Learn to know the Word, the Word, the Word.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NASB) “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” Kevin Robinson
January 21, 2015. Someone is in trouble. You were not expecting it. You are in the middle of the unexpected. Do not choose the retreat route. Instead, remind yourself that this is the day the Lord has made and determine to rejoice in it. Lift up the name of the Lord. He will surely come to your aid. He has done it in the past and He will do it again now. Humble your heart and pray. One prophet had 156,000 enemies coming at him. God sent ONE angel and slew them all. Pray!
Psalm 20:1-2 (NASB) “May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high! May He send you help from the sanctuary and support you from Zion!” Ras Robinson
January 21, 2015. Stay on course. You aren’t completely aware but a temptation lurking in the shadows is there to get you off course. Your enemy Satan doesn’t give up. He looks for cracks in your armor to throw his fiery darts. Don’t let a crack of doubt or fear unsettle you. I have spoken to you in your spirit, but the circumstances are showing you something very different. You don’t see how in the world victory is going to happen. Go back to where you received My word. Stay on the faith course.
Ephesians 6:16-17 (NKJV) “above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;” Bev Robinson
January 21, 2015.An abundance of spiritual resources are in your possession. Too often, you have short changed yourself into a mindset occupied with lack and deprivation. Let the window of your heart receive and take part of the wealth My fullness contains. Satan would have you believe that your deficiencies, shortcomings, and failings are what are keeping you from a spiritually prosperous lifestyle. Satan is the father of lies, and he wants you to live where he resides. The reality is, you possess a cornucopia of all you can envision. Trust Truth.
John 17:10 (NASB) “and all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.” Kevin Robinson
January 20, 2015. Living according to the prophetic word of the Lord is the most exciting life there is. The Holy Spirit wrote through Peter the shining truth about God’s word to you and me. He described it as light shining in a dark place. It waits there until it is the right time to shine into our hearts like the rising daily sun, illuminating the darkness. The word of God can lie dormant, but it never returns void . It illuminates the day when Jesus will speak even more clearly to you by His word. With such words you fight and win the battles of life.
2 Peter 1:19 (NASB) “So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.” Ras Robinson
January 20, 2015. Something you heard was not derogatory . It wasn’t a slam on something you are doing. It was just a simple comment. Don’t allow yourself to suspect peoples sayings or actions. Be childlike in the face of evil. Don’t let things said be filtered through some of your past. Don’t allow the negative comments which were in your family growing up to affect your hearing. I put you on a new road, the high road. The low road is filled with people and ideas that drag you down. Beloved, rise above.
1 Corinthians 14:20 (ESV) “Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature.” Bev Robinson
January 20, 2015.Let a “can-do attitude” be an earmark of whose you are. As a Christian, there should be observable evidence of a servant’s heart, mindset and work ethic concerning you. An easy path would be one who is always deferring and passing the buck onto someone else. Instead of allowing a slacker mentality to creep into your midst, be a catalyst who leads quietly in representing Me by serving others with cheerfulness. My kindness and goodness should be evident to others of your renewed spirit nature. Remember it’s Me you are serving.
Matthew 20:28 (TLB) “Your attitude must be like my own, for I, the Messiah, did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give my life.” Kevin Robinson
January 19, 2015. Things are good now. But in this atmosphere of feasting and joy comes strife again. It is brought about by ambitions and competition. You long for a simple antidote for this strife. That antidote is found in loving God and obeying His word. Obedience to His word is crucial, His word to you in your past, in your present and in your future. Make note and review the last instructions God gave you. Repent and obey them now. Study His word for use in your future. Obedience will drive away strife. Peace and quiet will come as you obey His word.
Proverbs 17:1 (NIV) “Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.” Ras Robinson
January 19, 2015. Something is coming soon that will start a fire in your belly. You’ll resist it at first but then you will change your mind and research it. I know you. This is the way you are. You resist something new at first but then, when you see what I am doing, you get on board and want it all. You will see walls crumble that cause people to be separated. You will see things happen that you have been wanting to happen. You will experience blessings that you had begun to think were impossible.
Matthew 21:28-29 (AMP) “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He came to the first and said, Son, go and work today in the vineyard. And he answered, I will not; but afterward he changed his mind and went.” Bev Robinson
January 19, 2015. My word is pinpoint accurate. Throughout Scripture writers were obedient to My voice and documented the things they saw or heard. Just as those writers delivered in written form My ordained word with excellence, I want you to speak the same. Believe your spoken words can be spot-on too. Through yielding to My voice, have faith that you can speak with clarity to others the words of encouragement they long to hear. You are My voice to the world around you. Rely completely on Me to use you mightily.
2 Corinthians 3:12 (NASB) “Therefore having such a hope, we use great boldness in our speech,” Kevin Robinson
January 17, 2015. It pleases the Lord that you daily seek to maintain His righteousness in your life. He knows of your devotion to obey His intents and commands. You catch His attention when He sees your countenance fall upon realizing you have been disobedient even in small things. His tests of you are golden opportunities for you to show your love for His words and presence in your life. You work hard and stay alert to build up, stir up and cheer up those around you with your words and deeds.
Psalm 17:3 (NASB) “You have tried my heart; You have visited me by night; You have tested me and You find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.” Ras Robinson
January 17, 2015. Winning is very important to you. Whatever it takes to win is what you are doing. Don’t take a dishonest route to win. If you do it will catch up with you. Stop and strongly consider this. Stop and get out of this now by a complete turnaround. Tell Me. I will help you. Yes there are some consequences, but they are minor right now. Don’t let the consequences build. Beloved, turn. You will be so glad. Let Me make you a winner and there will be no sorrow attached.
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.” Bev Robinson
January 17, 2015. Be inspired today! Live, breathe, and move about as one who is not motivated by your own wants or needs. Instead make an impact in and on the world around you as one who is mightily directed by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Don’t muster up ideas or plans of your own accord. Wait patiently for Me and My course I have laid out for you. Know I see you as brilliant. Illuminate My radiance through obedience. Be encouraged. I chose you to accomplish My will.
Psalm 40:8 (NLT) “I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart.” Kevin Robinson
January 16, 2015. You long for a wiped clean re-charging and refreshing turn around and recovery. Over the years, barnacles of wounds, hurts and results of forgiven sin have been hanging on and clinging to you. Almost no one knows about this but you and the Lord. But you find yourself stuck between desire and reality concerning your past. The Lord says, “Your solution to getting that re-charge and refreshing is this. Remember those prayers you prayed confessing these things and how I completely forgave you?” That was both real and forever.
Acts 3:19 (AMP) “So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord.” Ras Robinson
January 16, 2015. Cast Me your cares. Pitch Me your worries. They are doing you no good. Don’t carry them around. They are pulling you down. When you were born again I made the way for you to never have to carry a worry again. You believed that then and a load came off your back and you experienced freedom like you had never experienced before. Somehow as time went on you forgot it. You began picking up worries and cares again, as if you could do something about them. Beloved, throw them to Me again.
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV) “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” Bev Robinson
January 16, 2015. Fully utilize your time. Establish prayer as an integral and vital part of every moment in your life. Perhaps you’ll never know the full impact prayer has in your life and in the life of others. Whether it’s in your vehicle, or perhaps when you’re up all night, or even once you sit down after a long day. Institute the institution of prayer into all of who you are, and within every aspect of your existence. If you don’t know how to pray, ask Me and I’ll show you how.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 (AMP) “Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly].” Kevin Robinson
January 15, 2015. You profess to be born again. Your sins are forgiven. You hunger and thirst for more of God. To feed that hunger and thirst, you should read the Scriptures daily and seek to learn more and more about His glory, majesty and nature. Some who are born again also have received the Holy Spirit and are aware of it. But in case you did not, receive now the Holy Spirit. Upon doing this, you will notice a difference in your life. Seek Him. He promises to fill you.
Acts 19:2 (NASB) “He said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said to him, “No, we have not even heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” Ras Robinson
January 15, 2015. It’s time to wrap some things up. There are loose ends that need tying up. There are things you have been putting off which bother you. Now is an opportune time to get them done. You will find yourself operating in warp time enabling you to get things completed at a faster rate than you have imagined. Organize your thinking. Record what absolutely must be done first, second and so on. Do these in order. I will be helping. What you dreaded will get done with time left over.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2 (NIV) “As God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” Bev Robinson
January 15, 2015. Take time to rejoice. There is much to celebration. Instead of hanging your head down and having a “woe is me” attitude, fix your gaze upon things above. Don’t get caught in the trap of negativity. Change your mindset away from pessimism and defeat toward an optimistic attitude of victory, triumph, and success. Think positive. Confess who you are in Me. Act upon the righteousness of your inheritance. Choose to have fellowship with believers who confess and act as more than conquerors. Be busy about rejoicing.
Luke 10:21 (ESV) “In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.” Kevin Robinson
January 14, 2015. When Heaven and earth agree on what is proper and lawful, there is a holy unity and agreement. His presence becomes a reality. Good things happen to those who choose to seek being as God is and living as God lives. From the view of earth, believers wish to have the glory, riches and power of Heaven while on earth. It is God’s good pleasure to grant requests for that union between Heaven and earth. A study of what goes on in Heaven will be very enlightening. Go for it!
Matthew 16:19 (AMP) “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven” Ras Robinson
January 14, 2015.You can do this. You have done it before and you can do it again. Let Me bring to your mind circumstances of the past when you overcame. Don’t think about them in detail because you don’t want to get stuck there. But think about them generally and remember in detail how you felt when you overcame. I will do this again. I will fight your battle now like just like I fought it before. Soon this will pass. You will walk again in freedom, peace, blessings and joy.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law” Bev Robinson
January 14, 2015.An extension of grace and mercy is what you’ve longed for yourself personally. Yet when the thought of your neighbor comes to mind, and the way they move, you cringe just a bit because you wonder what their next appeal might be that involves you. Love and acceptance is what everyone desires . Is the same grace and mercy you desire freely given to those around you? Is there a level playing ground for those around you or is the field sloped only for your advantage? Let My love abound greatly.
Mark 12:31 (NASB) “The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Kevin Robinson
January 13, 2015. Have you ever wondered why God likes His children to sing to Him. It is the same as when small children around the world delight parents and the whole world when they sing. He likes our songs and especially those filled with thanksgiving. Also He even inhabits our praise we offer Him. That should make it clear as to His pleasure. He even joins somehow in the singing enough to be counted as inhabiting our praises to Him. Sing, sing, sing to our Father.
Psalm 13:6 (NASB) “I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me.” Ras Robinson
January 13, 2015. When you accepted Me as Lord you got in on My Way. This is the way of salvation, healing, deliverance, protection, favor, provision and more. You are a winner, an overcomer, one who is above and not below. You are the head and not the tail. When circumstances lead you to think otherwise don’t believe what you see, hear or feel. Go by what I have recorded in My Word. Abraham is the father of all believers. Your faith gets you in on what he had and much much more.
Romans 4:16 (NKJV) “Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all” Bev Robinson
January 13, 2015. Expect a sense of awe. As a child of mine, it should come as no surprise for you to experience Me and My kingdom and its many facets. You should expect the unexpected in your midst from my Presence among you. Your natural senses should pick up My supernatural manifestations on a regular basis. Acknowledge the unthinkable. Begin to anticipate some supernatural, peculiar, and illogical ways in which I move. If people in the Bible experienced wonderous events and you believe those stories, expect the same and more for yourself.
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
January 12, 2015. All of God’s promises are yes and amen for you who believe. The original covenant required that all the law must be fulfilled if you were to be righteous before God. It was impossible to completely obey God’s law. So, because of God’s grace and mercy, He gave a new covenant whose conditions were fulfilled by the death of Jesus on the cross. God will never change His mind. His new and better covenant is a gift of grace. Every believer is an heir because of the new covenant.
Hebrews 7:22 (NLT) “Because of this oath, Jesus is the one who guarantees this better covenant with God.” Ras Robinson
January 12, 2015.Don’t let yourself be tripped up by a minor sin. All sin is sin, but some sin that affects just you is not as destructive as that which affects others. Worry is something that affects mostly you. It is not good for the health of your body and soul, but it is also a sin. That which is not of faith is sin. Sometimes no one knows you are worried except you. When I called you, it was to get you on a road of faith. Repent. Don’t worry. Be happy.
Romans 14:22-23 (NKJV) “Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves .But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.” Bev Robinson
January 12, 2015.Hot off the stove top. Something is brewing. You feel as though you have been in hot water for a while now. Don’t fret about when your ordeal will end. With this in mind, I am in the preparation process of making what seems difficult on the surface into something quite refreshing. It is much like making a glass of tea. There has to be a steeping process for the delightful end product to come to fruition. Don’t worry about the difficulties you’re in. Rather consider the joy that’s ahead and waiting.
James 1:2-4 ” My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptation; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience, but let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire wanting nothing.” Kevin Robinson
January 10, 2015. You are prone towards anger. Some have scorned you for becoming angry. The Lord says, “Even I get angry. But My anger is redemptive in that I want things to change for the better in every case. I do not harbor resentment nor do I seek revenge. Anger is to be an impetus for positive change and improvement. Sin comes when you let anger linger and go deep into your soul. When and if you get angry, never sleep with it. Snatch away any opportunity the devil gains by sin. Stay clean.”
Ephesians 4:26-27 (NASB) “BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity.” Ras Robinson
January 10, 2015. Be at peace. All is good, even though instructions have been changed at a late date. It seems many things were not as set in place as you thought they were. Again I say be at peace. I am in control. You have been willing to be flexible and this is good. In coming days this is going to be more important than it has been in the past. Staying flexible doesn’t mean you aren’t walking in faith. Quite the contrary, it shows Me you are listening closely to Me.
John 14:27 (NIV) “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”Bev Robinson
January 10, 2015. You have had feelings of being disjointed and unconnected for quite some time now. It is critical that you get beyond yourself and deny your feelings of self-pity. Everyone has feelings of loneliness and isolation at some point in time. It is essential for you to negate the lies Satan has thrown at you. Rise up. Embrace who I’ve called you to be. Take some initiative; use the resources I’ve given you and move forward. Understand this is only a short phase in time. Know who and whose you are.
Matthew 16:24 (AMP) “Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests] and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].”Kevin Robinson
January 9, 2015. You have given so much. Much of your life is lived for others. The motto on our Robinson family crest reads “Born not for ourselves but for the whole world.” The last words of Jesus were “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Your reward is very great!
Matthew 19:27-30 (NASB) “Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?” And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.”Ras Robinson
January 9, 2015. I have called you to walk in freedom. When you hear a condemning voice whether a voice of the enemy attacking your thoughts or from someone outside your thoughts, reject it quickly. Don’t let it lodge in your mind. My voice helps you not sin. I will never condemn you. Yes, I will correct you, but it will be with no malice, and instead will be full of mercy. I will be straight to the point, and when heeded you will be rewarded. Stay aware of My Presence and walk in My Spirit.
Romans 6:16 (NLT) “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.” Bev Robinson
January 9, 2015. Write it down. When I reveal something to you in the spirit realm, develop the discipline of picking up a pen and writing down on paper what you have seen or heard. If the writers of the Old and New Testament had not done so, you would not have the Bible in your midst. Though some of the matters may seem miniscule and of little significance right now. The revelation I bring across the screen of your mind will have more merit if you have tangible evidence to reflect upon.
Habakkuk 2:2 (NASB) “Then the Lord answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, thatthe one whoreads it may run. “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.” Kevin Robinson
January 8, 2015. No fear or worry for you. Let no fear creep into your mind, will or emotions. Fear is a killer demon sent from hell itself and its master Satan. Flee from all worry. Worry has never accomplished anything but to drag you through the mire, ending up in a pit of worry. Take your stand against both fear and worry. They waste your time and energy. Look away from both and let your pinpoint focus be on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Adore, admire and fix your gaze on Him. Never look back.
1 Peter 3:13-14 (NLT) “Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.” Ras Robinson
January 8, 2015. There are angels all around you. You may not be able to see them but be aware of their presence. Sense them out of the corner of your eye as they whiz or amble by. Be aware of their ministry. They are there to help. You have spoken My Word and they are working on carrying it out. Continue speaking My Word and your faith will become stronger. Don’t give in to unbelief, thinking nothing is happening because you can’t see what is happening. Believe Me. Your needs are being met.
Hebrews 1:14 (MOFF) “Are not all angels merely spirits in the divine service, commissioned for the benefit of those who are to inherit salvation?” Bev Robinson
January 8, 2015. Straighten up and fly right! You’re a child of the King and it’s only appropriate for you to act, speak, and live accordingly. Your behavior is under scrutiny. Because of who and whose you are akin too, you are associated with a lifestyle of excellence. Without saying a word, people around you can be persuaded to examine themselves more carefully because of your chaste conduct. Examine yourselves thoroughly to see that you’re living a spotless and blameless life. Do people around you believe in Me purely because of your life?
1 Peter 2:21 (NLT) “For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps.” Kevin Robinson
January 7, 2015. The enemy surrounds you. He plots and schemes. More and more he is sending his warriors into your land. Hatred has been brewing for centuries and is coming from a cauldron of offenses so long ago. Be forewarned. These warriors are preparing for an assault from within your ranks. This is a great time to assemble your own intercessors and spiritual warriors. Pray for My strategies and action plans to be carried out with force and precision. This victory is yours says the Lord. I am the righteous God who reigns over all.
Psalm 7:9 (NASB) “O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; For the righteous God tries the hearts and minds.”Ras Robinson
January 7, 2015. “Is what I am doing helping or hurting?” is a question you have asked yourself. It is your desire to help. I know that. Present your case pro and con and see if you are helping. Prepare yourself for it to go either way. Keep yourself from being disappointed if it doesn’t go your way, but also prepare yourself that if you are needed you will hop on board to help any way you can. This way your heart will be clear and given over to Me. I will enable you to walk in faith with love.
Galatians 5:6 (MSG) “For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.” Bev Robinson
January 7, 2015. Satan is sizing you up all the time. He is constantly looking for whom he can devour. Though he is defeated, he is relentless in his pursuit of destruction, annihilation and utter ruin. When you move about throughout your day, you are being watched and tracked as if you are some sort of prey. Does Satan see someone who moves about according to the flesh, or does he see Me because you walk by My Spirit in all things? Walk in a manner that’s hidden within and surrounded by Me.
Ephesians 4:24 (NASB) “and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.”Kevin Robinson
January 6, 2015. A baby learns to trust and give praise on his (or her) mother’s breast. Over and over again, he nurses and is satisfied. Getting hungry again, the baby cries to eat again, not always assured the supply is there. It is, over and over again. In this human process he learns that God our Father never fails. He is the same throughout time and space. I stood one day in the bright noonday sun shining exactly on my head. I had no shadow. Neither does God, being totally one within Himself. Glory to God!
James 1:17-18 (NLT) “Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” Ras Robinson
January 6, 2015. A heavy dose of responsibility is headed your way. You agreed to something before you gave it much thought. You will be fine and what you will be responsible for will be fine. In fact it will be much more than fine. I planned it this way, because if you thought too much about it you wouldn’t have accepted. I think you can handle more responsibility than you think you can. This is something you’ll learn to build your confidence. You believe in Me, but Beloved, I also believe in you.
Matthew 25:21 (NLT) “The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’ Bev Robinson
January 6, 2015.You often have heard the phrase “let go, and let God”. The word “letting,” has more significance than you know. What you’ve done in “letting,” means you’ve given Me permission because I paid the price for you. The truth is, I don’t need your authorization to move or do anything. Relinquish your will to My Sovereignty. My will, will be accomplished, because I am Lord! It is tiring to fight against Me. Surrender your will to Me, who freely gave it to you. I am your Savior. Am I your Lord?
Isaiah 55:9 (NLT) “For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Kevin Robinson
January 5, 2015. Time seems to be going very fast. You feel like you are on a very fast track. The fact of the matter is you are on a very fast track. It is going to be hard to slow down but you need to do just that. You are involved in things that are robbing the effectiveness you need for the most important things. Examine what you are involved in. What you need is to be spending your time on things I have called forth. Think back and ask yourself, “Is what you are doing what I said to do?”
1 Corinthians 6:12 (AMP) “Everything is permissible (allowable and lawful) for me; but not all things are helpful (good for me to do, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.” Bev Robinson
January 5, 2015. This year will bring some empty shelves. You have enjoyed a season of harvest. There is more to come. But for those who have not disciplined themselves to set aside provisions in the summer, there will be lack in winter. It is never too late to learn from the ant. Observe her ways and be wise. Let her wisdom sink deep into your body, soul and spirit. There is a rhythm God has imparted to you from your youth. An important element of His wisdom is to live within your means. He will lead you.
Proverbs 6:6-8 (NASB) “Go to the ant, O sluggard, observe her ways and be wise, which, having no chief, officer or ruler, prepares her food in the summer and gathers her provision in the harvest.” Ras Robinson
January 3, 2015. There are certain actions keeping you from your best. I know deep in your heart you want to make changes. You have tried and this is good. Now it is time to call in someone to help. Make yourself accountable to someone who loves, prays and will not be afraid to correct you. This is the way I have made My body. You are My body on earth today and I have ways for you to conduct yourself that makes you an example to others. Beloved, hear and obey Me.
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 3, 2015. God has His eyes on you for good and better things. The enemy has planted thoughts of guilt and shame. He has reminded you of the sins of your youth. He has kept you from seeing yourself as God sees you. God sees you as forgiven for past, present and future sins. He does not remember them and He wants you to break from the enemy’s chains that condemn you. God’s offer to you today is this, “Starting now, seek daily to keep yourself pure, special and honorable. I choose you!”
2 Timothy 2:21 (NLT) “If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.” Ras Robinson
January 2, 2015. You’re seeking motivation and energy to start something again. Remember it is easier to start well than it is to finish well. There is usually excitement when starting which is good. But also keep your completed goal in mind. Think of how you will feel when your goal is accomplished. Be excited about starting, but think of the race as a long haul. The prize comes at the finish line not the starting line. You’ll want to finish well as much as you want to start well. Think of the accomplishment you will experience.
Revelation 1:8 (AMP) “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).” Bev Robinson
January 2, 2015. Starting the New Year off right is critically important. Success and prosperity will come this year because you will make God’s word uppermost in importance. You will meditate on it continuously. One important change for you is to always have your mouth full of His word. Speak His word with the faith He has given you. Your goal is to do everything according to the word of God. This will come through gifts of wisdom and obedience. I give the wisdom and you provide the obedience. In this way, you, yourself, will make your way successful and prosperous.
Joshua 1:8 (NASB) “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” Ras Robinson
January 1, 2015. There are attitudes and actions that keep you from living life abundantly. Pointing this out is in no way to condemn you. Instead it is to show you that you can turn to Me and away from what keeps you from walking the high road. I made a way for you to be free, successful, and full of love. The blood I shed at My crucifixion cleanses you from all sin . You now have the Holy Spirit to give you the wisdom to live abundantly. Listen to Him . Do what He says.
1 John 1:7-9 (NASB) “but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 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 1, 2015. Fix your gaze on the top priority and most important thing in this new season. In this time, determine to know exactly what God has said. Ask yourself if you added to the words He spoke to you. Cull and separate any nuisances or your “better ideas” to supplement God’s word. Inquire of Him more until absolute clarity comes. A big part of focusing is finding the exact location of the bull’s eye. Once found, refuse to add to or take away. Clarity wins the prize in this new season. Seize the day.
Hebrews 12:2-3 (NIV) “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”Ras Robinson
