June 24, 2017. Out of nowhere, doubt will hit. It has come a few times before. You hate it when it comes. That’s a good hate, My child. You have discerned between good and evil, which is important and very good for you and your family. Don’t spend any time at all entertaining doubt. It is sneaky and evil and will overwhelm you before you know it. Turn quickly and seek Me and My word. Return to faith quickly.
Hebrews 5:13-14 (NASB) “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.” Bev Robinson
June 24, 2017. Sometimes you feel that you are at the mercy of an omniscient God, and you are. You need to fully realize your complete and total dependence upon God as Jehovah Jireh, your Provider. Embrace the posture of holding your arms and hands in a position of being a good recipient of God’s bountiful blessings. Without His sustenance, you would wither like the grass. You are His dependent; be reliant on His provision. You always need a benefactor.
Isaiah 41:13 (NASB) “For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand, who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.'” Kevin Robinson
June 23, 2017. Take time to rest. Get the notion out of your head that you have to be working or doing something all the time. Rest is a good thing. Rest restores your mind, body and spirit. Work is good. It brings a blessing of fulfillment, but rest is also good. You aren’t lazy. Don’t think rest and laziness are close to being the same. Rest and laziness are miles apart. Stop. Get some rest.
Hebrews 4:7a(NLT) “So God set another time for entering his rest, and that time is today.” Bev Robinson
June 23, 2017. You long to get a personal word of prophecy from a proven prophet don’t you? In the past, you have received specific words that have meant a great deal to you. At times they have been spot on and some have even been a mandate about when and where you are to go, do or say. God is speaking to you face to face as He did with Moses. Be prepared to record specific declarations right now.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NLT) “So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord-who is the Spirit-makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” Kevin Robinson
June 22, 2017. Do your best to keep up with what is going on right now. Whatever it takes – do it. If you get in the habit early, it won’t be too hard later on to keep up. There is a series of happenings that has already begun. Don’t get behind. Keep up with what is going on. Plan your activities so you will have enough time to get them done. This is not busy work. t will last forever.
Ecclesiastes 3:14 (AMP) “I know that whatever God does, it endures forever; nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it. And God does it so that men will [reverently] fear Him [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].” Bev Robinson
June 22, 2017. Always remember that you are in this for the long haul. You have had a few misconceptions about the way things should have taken place and by a specific time. Remember that God has built you for endurance. Sure, short term gain is good and pleasant at the time, but it is the long term achievements that bring greater satisfaction. Hardships you have encountered have produced and proven your character and given you the ability to persevere.
Romans 15:5-6 (NIV) “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Kevin Robinson
June 21, 2017. A little push is needed to get you over the hump. You can do this. Just a little push. You will be so glad. It will be behind you and then you can go on to something else. There is a lot to do at this present time, but you can do it. Don’t allow discouragement to set in. Get up and do something else to keep that from happening, then sit back down. Exert the effort.
2 Thessalonians 3:13 (AMP) “And as for you, brethren, do not become weary or lose heart in doing right [but continue in well-doing without weakening].” Bev Robinson
June 21, 2017. Take some time to remember all that God has done for you. Reflect back on those impossible situations where He came through for you as He had promised. Remember how He raised you out of the muck and mire and placed you on solid ground. God is worthy to praised again and again and again. Envelope yourself in a cloak of thanksgiving for all He has done, is doing and will continue to do on your behalf.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT) “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” Kevin Robinson
June 20, 2017. No matter how small it was, it was a breakthrough. It was a turn. Not a complete turnaround, but nevertheless a turn. Keep believing events are moving in the right direction. This turn is My direction and a result of prayer and faithful believing. There was a choice, the right choice. Let your heart be filled with thanksgiving and gratefulness. Let there be no room for retaliation to the one behind the problem. Continue praying and believing.
Job 37:12 (AMP) “And it is turned round about by His guidance, that they may do whatever He commands them upon the face of the habitable earth.” Bev Robinson
June 20, 2017. Quite often, all that is needed in certain situations is for you to just be there. No words are needed, but your presence is appreciated very much. People are going through all kinds of stuff on a regular basis and want just to be gently loved. They need a place that is safe and secure without the notion that someone will want to “fix” them. Consider being quiet and allow the other person to feel safe and secure in your presence.
Ecclesiastes 3:7b (NASB) “A time to be silent and a time to speak.” Kevin Robinson
June 19, 2017. Give yourself over to Me. Give all of yourself to Me. I know you are not sure what to do, especially in a specific area of your life. The enemy is now running rampant. You fear that what you do will be wrong and your decision will not be good for you or others. It is good to admit that. It is humility. I give instructions to the the humble, instructions that will last a life time and on into eternity.
James 4:6-7 (ESV) “But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Bev Robinson
June 19, 2017. It’s hard to believe, but you’ve been in a gestational period for some time now. The prenatal period wasn’t planned on your part, but God has implanted His seed within your innermost being and a birthing is about to occur. Don’t be alarmed because this is something He preordained. A new vision and outlook is about to present itself. Embrace this God-child and be prepared to be overjoyed like never before. This is His child to raise.
John 12:24 (NIV) “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” Kevin Robinson
June 17, 2017. Seek Me for the plan. It is good that something I told you worked in the past. You gave Me praise and all was well, but this is a different time and place. I have something else that will work. I have not left you alone. I will never leave you alone. I desire to have an ongoing relationship with you. I have plans for you in every area of your life. They work as you seek Me.
Proverbs 3:6-7 (NKJV) “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.” Bev Robinson
June 17, 2017. It’s okay, you can rest easy now. Your anxious thoughts have been running rampant and you haven’t gotten much sleep. You need to know that your God never sleeps nor slumbers and is on duty on your behalf. You have been in a state of seemingly endless chaos and worry over certain things that have happened. Trust God with the intimate details of your struggles. God’s got this, just like He has in the past. Don’t worry about tomorrow.
Philippians 4:6 (AMP) “Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.” Kevin Robinson
June 16, 2017. There is no way you can guarantee that what is happening will pan out for your benefit. What you really want is the results to be for the benefit of all. I AM working for all to get in on My blessings, but some will not take advantage of what I’m doing. They had rather go their own way. Don’t give up trusting that what will happen will be for your advantage and will result in many blessings. Keep believing Me.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV) “However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” Bev Robinson
June 16, 2017. Callouses have crept into your heart. Allow the Word of God, which is sharper than any two-edged sword, to come in and cut away the toughened build-up of flesh inside your heart. For too long, the Church has taken a soft stance upon lackadaisical and apathetic living from within. A time set aside for fasting, self-effacement and humility is what’s needed. Envision God’s heart of sorrowfulness for humanity? Allow God to unstiffen your hardened heart.
Ezekiel 11:19 (NIV) “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.” Kevin Robinson
June 15, 2017. Events will get worse as time goes on. You are seeing this with your own eyes. You aren’t sure about all you need to be doing during this time. Of course you know to pray for safety for you and your loved ones. That is the first thing you do. Do not let fear get the ascendancy in your mind. Do not entertain the worse that can happen. Believe the best and keep on doing the right thing.
1 Corinthians 13:6-7 (NIV) “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Bev Robinson
June 15, 2017. Today is Ras and Bev Robinson’s 60th wedding anniversary. My parents positioned Jesus Christ as the cornerstone upon which they would build their lives and have upheld a life of serving Him with all their heart, mind, soul and strength. They personify lives yielded first to God and then each other as they encourage the Church and everyone they encounter. Thank you, Dad and Mom, for setting the bar high. May we all learn from your example of godliness and love.
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT ) “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Kevin Robinson
June 14, 2017. Something new is coming. You are hoping it will fit in with what is already established. If it does, there will be a welcome harmony. You are seeking other things that are new. You aren’t sure if this is the time to introduce something else new or if there needs to be time between the two new events. Go day by day and see how the current new things work out. You will discern as you go.
Isaiah 43:19 (ESV) “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Bev Robinson
June 14, 2017. Never forget that it was and is the kindness of God that led and still leads you to repentance. Imagine how the world around you could be changed through humbling yourself before God. Reflecting back, you can vividly recall those times when people went out of their way and made themselves vulnerable to show kindness to you. Be willing to make a God-sized impact upon people through simple acts of displaying God’s loving kindness. Transform your world.
Ephesians 4:32 (NASB) “Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Kevin Robinson
June 13, 2017. The decision has been made and the follow through has now occurred. You had prayed this wouldn’t happen, but it did. Now what do you do? The main thing is to maintain thankfulness. I have a different plan. It is not what you would call by the book. But it is by My Book. Don’t worry. Surrender yourself to Me. Surrender all parties to Me. Don’t think “what if.” Wait and see the goodness of the LORD.
Psalm 106:1 (NLT) “Praise the LORD! Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.” Bev Robinson
June 13, 2017. Be wise and careful with your choice of words. God has given you a check valve to govern what comes out of your mouth, so be watchful of what you are saying as well as your delivery. Consider carefully your listeners and be unhurried with the amount of information you are about to make known. Sometimes keeping your thoughts and opinions to yourself is the wisest decision you will ever choose. Don’t be foolish.
Proverbs 17:28 (NLT) “Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.” Kevin Robinson
June 12, 2017. I AM moving you up into a higher realm. You will be able to see more clearly from My perspective. Events will not be as close up as they have been. You will see more from My point of view. There are two things that have already happened, causing you to suspect a change. You don’t know exactly what they mean, just that they mean something. You have been being established. Now you will see more clearly.
Proverbs 15:24 (MSG) “Life ascends to the heights for the thoughtful – it’s a clean about-face from descent into hell.” Bev Robinson
June 12, 2017. In your Christian walk, let your life be about a position. Let your life be a connection with those around you. Life is not about coincidence. God orchestrates your times, places and events to be used for His glory and purpose. God desires for you to work closely with those around you. Look for instances where you can work with others in a side by side effort. Recognize your need for camaraderie and companionship.
Deuteronomy 32:30 (NKJV) “How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, And the Lord had surrendered them?” Kevin Robinson
June 10, 2017. Frustration on top of frustration. One thing can’t be sufficiently handled until another pops up. You have a choice. You know it, because you have been here before. You don’t want to walk this way because it will only cause more frustration. Others don’t know how frustrated you are. Don’t reveal it or the frustration will expand. Take a deep breath. Settle yourself down. Think thoughts of thankfulness. I will help you get over this. Trust Me.
Psalm 88:8b-9 (MSG) “I’m caught in a maze and can’t find my way out, blinded by tears of pain and frustration. I call to you, GOD; all day I call. I wring my hands, I plead for help.” Bev Robinson
June 10, 2017. An exchange has taken place, but you have not fully recognized its effect in your life. Spirit filled living means your old flesh-filled rationale is done away with. Forgetting what lies behind means just that. Flood your intellect with righteous thoughts of who I say you are. Refuse to let past shortcomings dictate your present living. Allow the Holy Spirit the freedom to transform your brain power. Defeatist mindsets are gone. Victorious outlooks are yours.
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 (NLT) “But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others. For, “Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.” Kevin Robinson
June 9, 2017. Much is going on in your life at this time. You aren’t sure why there is such an increase. All you know is that it is almost overwhelming. Keep your cool. Take one thing at a time. Do all you can to do it right the first time. Spend your time wisely thinking it all through as you go. You don’t want to spend more time correcting things because you aren’t thinking as you go. I will help you.
Psalm 37:23-24 (AMP) “The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.” Bev Robinson
June 9, 2017. Right now you feel somewhat defeated. Your overwhelmed mindset perceives that certain events have not gone as you had intended. Nothing could be further than the truth. Look at your situation from God’s paradigm and perspective. He is in control regardless of what you comprehend. Your soul’s enemy believes that the enemy is triumphant, much like he did upon Jesus’ crucifixion. You are victorious in every circumstance. You are more than an overcomer.
John 16:33 (AMP) “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]” Kevin Robinson
June 8, 2017. Do not allow yourself to get out of control. Self-control is a gift, a gift of the Spirit. I know it is hard, but the Spirit will help you. Worry and other much more severe reactions are ways you can go, but you don’t want to do that. Those are hard to come back from. You have to spend more time correcting a lack of self-control than time spent in making the right choice up front.
Galatians 5:22-25 (NASB77) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Bev Robinson
June 8, 2017. Stake your claim to the wealth that is found in Jesus Christ. At your fingertips, lay treasures untold and truths like you have always wanted to know. As an heir, you have complete access to heavenly mysteries that have eluded the wise until now. Divine resources await you because of your lineage and birthright. Simple humility will cause your heavenly Father to unveil ambiguities and actualities of marvelous certainties. Don’t complicate the obvious. Embrace God’s wealth.
Colossians 1:26-27 (NOG) “In the past God hid this mystery, but now he has revealed it to his people. God wanted his people throughout the world to know the glorious riches of this mystery-which is Christ living in you, giving you the hope of glory.” Kevin Robinson
June 7, 2017. Ideas are flooding your mind, and have been for quite a while. You’re wondering why. Which of these ideas is from Me and which are only from your own desires. I AM training you to hear from Me and to do what I say. You are needing to learn. Pick an idea, not one that you think would be earth changing, and follow through on what you hear. If it isn’t from Me I will show you. I’m training you.
Hebrews 4:12 (ESV) “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Bev Robinson
June 7, 2017. The words you say are compelling. Consider how much effect the positive words of someone else have affected your belief structure. You have the ability to build others up or tear them down with just a few simple words. Consider carefully the weight of your speech before conveying your thoughts. Reflect back on the effective words people have spoken over you and carry forward constructive language like you would want to receive. Believe the best in others. Communicate life.
Proverbs 15:23 (NIV) “A person finds joy in giving an apt reply- and how good is a timely word!” Kevin Robinson
June 6, 2017. One of the main callings I have on your life is to help people keep from slipping into depression. I have called you to stir up, build up and cheer up people. Keep doing this until I say otherwise. Sometimes it seems to you to be rinky dink. But it isn’t rinky dink. It is speaking life to others. When people believe that I AM good and want them to prosper and be in good health, good happens to them.
1 Corinthians 14:3 (NIV) “But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort.” Bev Robinson
June 6, 2017. Your spiritual maturity is about to come into play like you have never seen before. You have prayed for and acquired godly wisdom that will be essential for the spiritual mentoring in the lives of some young believers in your life. Trust your Heavenly Father to use you to convey nuggets of truth which you have learned through the Holy Spirit’s revelation and impartation. The wisdom you’ve assimilated is real and tangible. Pass it on.
2 Corinthians 4:7 (NLT) “We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” Kevin Robinson
June 5, 2017. Things are better. You realized there was a break in the warfare, but not so sure it was all that better. I want you to know it is much better than you think. You have been faithful and continue to be faithful. I see your faith and am rewarding you and will continue to reward you. Keep the faith. Keep believing. Keep trusting and watch it continue to get better. My favor continues to reside on you.
Romans 8:28-29 (NIV) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.” Bev Robinson
June 5, 2017. Do everything within your power not to quench the Holy Spirit. You are to be stimulating the Body of Christ to love and good deeds. Believe the best about others, like Jesus Christ believes the best about you. Speak the best about people, giving them the benefit of the doubt. Be the consummate encourager God has called you to be. People need to know the Savior, not the condemner. Be positive and optimistic to those around you.
Ephesians 4:29 (NOG) “Don’t say anything that would hurt another person. Instead, speak only what is good so that you can give help wherever it is needed. That way, what you say will help those who hear you.” Kevin Robinson
June 3, 2017. What is going on with you is good, but others in the Body of Christ are under strong temptation from Satan. My words to them are strong to wake them up. Even though it is good with you at this time, pray for those who are listening to the enemy and going astray. Pray for them to come to their senses as did the prodigal son. We are all connected to each other. Pray a loving prayer.
Luke 15:17-20 (NIV) “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.’ So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Bev Robinson
June 3, 2017. Stay connected. It is essential for you to remain close in the Body of Christ. Satan appears to be having his way with many people, including some Christians. He knows his days are short and numbered. He is heaping depression, hopelessness, despair and thoughts of suicide to a disproportionate number within the Body. Do everything within your power not to alienate yourself from the flock. Jesus, the Shepherd, will steer you. Follow His lead.
Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Kevin Robinson
June 2, 2017. Don’t think about what is ahead. I know it sounds bad. It looks bad and it feels bad . But don’t rehearse ahead of time what you think about it being bad. Think of and rehearse the knowledge that I AM in control. This is necessary and has to be done. It’s a blessing and it will be done. It has been coming for a long time and, yes, it was discovered early. Don’t entertain anything associated with this being bad. Instead thank Me for being in control.
Philippians 4:8-9 (ESV) “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me-practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” Bev Robinson
June 2, 2017. A sincere, heartfelt apology might be what is needed right now to help mend the loose ends to some broken relationships. Sometimes it takes just a few simple words to rectify a situation that needs a breakthrough. Humble yourself before those you hold dear to your heart. The warfare you are experiencing is not between you and others, but rather spiritual powers which are seeking division. Cast your pride aside and watch the walls tumble.
James 4:6 (NLT) “And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Kevin Robinson
June 1, 2017. You heard God say something. You followed what you heard, but now it doesn’t seem to be working. You hurried to obey what you heard. You’re thinking you didn’t ask Him when you were to start. Maybe you didn’t stay before Him long enough to hear all of what you needed to do. You are wondering if you heard Him at all. This will be a test of faith. Will you continue to believe and trust Him?
2 Timothy 2:12-13 (MSG) “If we stick it out with him, we’ll rule with him; If we turn our backs on him, he’ll turn his back on us; If we give up on him, he does not give up- for there’s no way he can be false to himself.” Bev Robinson
June 1, 2017. What sin? I don’t remember what you are thinking or talking about! I don’t have any recollection of those things of which you speak! Why do you keep bringing them to My attention? As far as the east is from the west is how far away your so-called sin is. I see you as spotless and free of any hindrances that might keep you from Me. I AM continually wiping your slate clean from any iniquity you’ve ever committed!
Hebrews 8:12 (NLT) ” And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.” Kevin Robinson
