May 31, 2016. The sound of your name on someone else’s lips can be life changing. Has anyone has ever spoken your name as an example for good? Or have you heard the sound of your name in a conversation that suggests something negative? You have heard God’s name in various ways. This is why it is so wrong to speak the name of the Lord in vain. Never use His name as a curse word. Always say His name with loving reverence.
Deuteronomy 5:11 (ESV) “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” Ras Robinson
May 31, 2016. I knew what you wanted before you knew what you wanted. You know in your mind that you should trust Me more than you trust yourself. Beloved, I see you trusting with your heart over what you know in your mind. In your heart is the place where faith begins and ends. Be at peace as you go, knowing I have very good things ahead. Neither forge ahead nor lag behind. Stay in lock step with Me.
Psalm 143:8 (NASB) “Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.” Bev Robinson
May 31, 2016. Now would be the appropriate time for you to cut ties with individuals who’ve been detrimental to your well-being. You have given ample opportunities to certain individuals for them to change their demeanor and attitude. However, they still have chosen to remain obstinate and resistant to change. It’s time for you to wash your hands and move on with life. Don’t allow your grace to be trampled upon. Move on to greater plans I have for you.
Philippians 3:14 (NLT) “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Kevin Robinson
May 30, 2016. Today is a revered day in America when we honor military veterans who gave their lives in battle. It is a time to remember the price that has been paid for our freedom. With dignity we honor those who have served to earn and to protect our freedom. We bring the memory of them up to a high level and single them out for recognition. It is a good thing to esteem those who deserve recognition and to honestly lift them up.
Psalm 45:3 (MSG) “Strap your sword to your side, warrior! Accept praise! Accept due honor! Ride majestically! Ride triumphantly!” Ras Robinson
May 30, 2016. Talking about something is good, but sometimes it isn’t good. I will show you when to talk and when to keep silent. When there is the proverbial elephant in the room, it is emotionally and physically healthy to discuss this. I will show you how, when and where to talk. When the elephant is not discussed its effects can suddenly appear looming over everything when least expected. Don’t fret about how, when and where. I will lead.
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
May 30, 2016. Contrary to your beliefs, you are not fully at fault for the things which have caused you grief and sorrow. Satan is the deceiver and he is a liar towards you in every instance. He would have you believe that it is because of your mistakes which have caused you to be where you are. Refuse to let his lies affect you and cause you to doubt who you are in Me. Press forward with My credible truth.
Deuteronomy 28:13 (NLT) “If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.” Kevin Robinson
May 28, 2016. Can you receive My blessing of a long and satisfying life? I say unto you that your days are numbered according to My plan for your life. Who are you to seek adding to or taking away even one day of the life I have planned for you? Be diligent concerning the destiny I have given you. I have made you to be a golden vessel of My presence in the earth. This is your heritage to leave your descendants.
Genesis 25:7-8 (NASB) “Abraham lived for 175 years, and he died at a ripe old age, having lived a long and satisfying life. He breathed his last and joined his ancestors in death.” Ras Robinson
May 28, 2016. Don’t worry about the detour, or even the two detours. All will be well. Yes, there is a slowdown, but not to the point of making everything late and off course. Just keep going in the direction you have been given. All will happen on time. You don’t have to trust anyone else fully. Just trust Me. Things will have to be worked out that you need know nothing about. A wonderful event is coming.
Luke 3:5 (MSG) “Every ditch will be filled in, Every bump smoothed out, The detours straightened out, All the ruts paved over.” Bev Robinson
May 28, 2016. What benefit is there if your known world is based solely upon what you can see or touch? Let your life be made up of decisions where you move about from glory to glory. May you understand and receive revelation knowledge of Me, the Great I AM, as the one who creates something from nothing. Can you imagine the unimaginable? Take the necessary courage to step beyond your comfort zone and believe. Strengthen your faith by acting.
Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Kevin Robinson
May 27, 2016. Only the LORD knows your heart more than you. He examines it through the eyes of love, grace, compassion and pleasing His Father. Consider yourself blessed when the LORD tells you that your heart is good. His diagnosis is more accurate than an x-ray or an MRI measurement. So, consider God’s evaluation as supreme to yours and dedicate the rest of your life to His service. You have a good heart!
James 4:3 (NASB) “You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.” Ras Robinson
May 27, 2016. Get in a place where you can speak out loudly, a place where someone won’t think you crazy (you don’t want that to deal with). Now speak to the problem at hand. Bind the works of darkness that try to block you from My will. Then speak My word to the problem at hand. You hear what you are saying and faith arises. The enemy hears it and retreats. Angels hear it and carry out My word.
Psalm 103:19-20 (NASB) “The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all. Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!” Bev Robinson
May 27, 2016. Yes, these can be and are tough times for you right now. Though the days and nights may seem a bit longer than what they have been in the past, know that your time of intense testing and trials are coming to an end. If not for the hope I bring, there would be little to rejoice over. Be a good receiver of the good things I AM bringing. Open your arms wide to obtain blessings from Me.
Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Kevin Robinson
May 26, 2016. God does not want you to be submitted to the devil and his minions. Just because many people you know are in his clutches and are even stuck in his bed of lies, this is not a battle you are to lose. Instead, be strong in the LORD and in His might. Know your enemy and choose to resist him with all your might. Don’t let the devil trick you into believing he will eventually overcome you, making you into his slave.
James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Ras Robinson
May 26, 2016. Drop it. Drop suspicions now. Something happened that caused suspicion to knock at your door. Lock the door and hide the key. You don’t want to go back there. Do you? No. I know you don’t. Yes, of course forgive again. Remember 7 x 70 is the operation of forgiveness. That means on into eternity. Now get your mind onto the good that has been happening. Draw your thoughts into captivity to Me. Firmly set your mind.
Romans 8:5-6 (NASB) “so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,” Bev Robinson
May 26, 2016. Pursue peace at all times. In fact, let it be a critical element of who you are in the midst of all you say and do. This world is full of chaos and calamity. Therefore be My faithful instrument of reconciliation. Be the catalyst which brings harmony to unharmonious times and events. Be the one who brings a ceasefire when battles rage. Walk and talk in a manner which brings glory to Me.
Psalm 34:14 (NLT) “Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it.” Kevin Robinson
May 25, 2016. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is essential in everyday living on this earth. He (the Holy Spirit) is one in all things with your Savior Jesus. With your permission and invitation, the Holy Spirit reveals things and people you need to know. Allow Him to lead and guide you in all things. He can be trusted to bring you into a higher and more spiritual level with God your Father.
Ephesians 5:18 “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.” Ras Robinson
May 25, 2016. Not long ago you were taking one step forward and two steps back in getting beyond something that happened. For a while you were getting nowhere and even losing ground. Later you were taking two steps forward and one step back, moving ahead but slowly. Now you are gaining ground faster. Keep on this upward track. This shows you are trusting Me more and more, and letting Me handle the problem. Continue trusting and see what happens.
1 Thessalonians 5:15 (NASB) “See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.” Bev Robinson
May 25, 2016. It is important for you to take some tender loving care time for yourself. Too often you get caught up in taking care of everything and everyone else and it takes much of your time. Don’t let people take advantage of your servant’s heart of care and compassion. Take some “me” time to regroup, relax and retool your senses. Don’t feel guilty for taking time for yourself because you are worth it. Like others you too need some time.
Luke 5:16 (NLT) “But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.” Kevin Robinson
May 24, 2016. There is a battle going on that is not your battle. The warfare is hot and its intent is destruction. You are not absolutely at peace right now because you don’t have a clue about how to win. You have cried out to God, but He has not answered to fix things yet. But He has spoken that you are to follow His lead. You are following His leading and some of the fire, smoke and arrows are diminishing. Take this small beginning and play it to the hilt. God wins.
James 4:6-7 (NASB) “But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD is opposed to the proud, BUT GIVES grace to the humble.” Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Ras Robinson
May 24, 2016. Things are getting out of hand. You aren’t sure what to do. Take the time to seek Me. Seeking Me is vital at all times, but especially right now. You don’t want to go ahead with what you think. There are some hidden variables you can’t see. What appears to be obvious really isn’t the problem. Seeking Me is necessary to find out the solution. You won’t discover the problem or the answer any other way.
Isaiah 55:6 (NKJV) “Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.” Bev Robinson
May 24, 2016. Do not allow yourself to get caught up in controversial matters with others. Although you may have differing opinions on specific matters and situations, know that you are My representative of peace since I am the Prince of Peace. Walk in an honorable manner worthy of the calling I have placed upon your life. Keep yourself free from any form of discord and disharmony and walk calmly with others, especially with other faithful believers.
Micah 6:8 (NLT) “No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Kevin Robinson
May 23, 2016. Do not cheapen the value of your heart by giving parts of it to just anyone. Many well-intentioned people tend to open wide their hearts to all who ask or have a need. They do not seek counsel. In the end, the giver may grow too weary to continue. Re-thinking the origins of relationships may give opportunity for good relationships to continue and to avoid the bad ones. Love wisely.
Proverbs 23:12 (NASB) “Apply your heart to discipline And your ears to words of knowledge.” Ras Robinson
May 23, 2016. Satan has stolen something from you and now you aren’t sure exactly how to relate to what is left. You thought you would be over this by now, but it continues to linger. I see thoughts come in as a flood when you least expect them. I can see that Satan’s demons make sure of that. Be alert to where and from whom they come. Don’t linger or rehearse the event. I will show you ho
Jeremiah 1:19 (NASB) “”They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD.” Bev Robinson
May 23, 2016. Big leaps of faith are nothing new for you. You have had your fair share of ups and downs and now you are entering a time of uncertainties and difficulties. You are in good company because many fathers and mothers of the faith have successfully triumphed before you. Know that I have gone before you and I too was obedient to what My Father commanded. You will make many excellent choices in the times ahead of you.
Isaiah 11:2 (NASB) “And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, and He will not judge by what His eyes see, nor make a decision by what His ears hear;” Kevin Robinson
May 21, 2016. These are the days when hope is hard to find. We are like children standing by the highway hoping someone will stop while giving bread and water. Hope seems but flashes of lightening, bright but for quick moments at a time. Days have been dark while expecting better times but with no assurance or promise. We are asking for the righteousness of Jesus to overpower the devil on our behalf. Please restore your hope within us.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV) “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Ras Robinson
May 21, 2016. Don’t let the past trip you up. When circumstances happen that bring up thoughts that would bring you down. Keep still and quiet until they pass on by. Don’t let them settle into your mind. Get your focus back on Me as quickly as you can. Strive to enter My rest. That is only thing that I want you to strive for. Rest. Talk to Me. Hide in Me. Rely on Me. I AM directing your steps.
Psalm 32:7-8 (NASB) “You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” Bev Robinson
May 21, 2016. Find a way to rejoice with those who are at a place of rejoicing. Join in with the festivities and celebrate what I AM doing. Find a way for you to personally exhibit your gratitude to Me with the people whom I AM blessing. Open your eyes to see what I AM doing among those whom you hold dear. See the precious means of how I AM making My presence known. Find creative ways to express My joy.
Philippians 4:4 (NASB) “Rejoice in the LORD always; again I will say, rejoice!” Kevin Robinson
May 19, 2016. The LORD is calling for a cleansing and purifying of our mouths and tongues. Tongues have been busy sending messages that are not founded in Scripture or the heart of our Father. The uncontrollable fires from such a tongue sets afire evil and curses. While this may not be intentional, it needs to stop now. Ask God to cleanse and purify. Repent and return to the words so sweet that are from the LORD.
Psalms 19:14 “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
May 19, 2016. Unexpected blessings will pour in. You will be pleasantly surprised not knowing what caused them to come. Enjoy the abundance. You began broadcasting seed years ago for no reason other than your excitement about belonging to Me and being filled with My Spirit. You blessed many by sharing My love. Through the years those seeds have taken root, growing into full blown plants which now are producing fruit with more seeds planted. Exponential blessings will continue. Enjoy.
2 Corinthians 9:6 (NASB) “Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” Bev Robinson
May 19, 2016. Refuse to let darkness penetrate your life of light. Within you resides a realm of brightness that Satan and his adversaries try to infiltrate on a continual basis. Don’t allow any aspect of your daily walk with Me to be exposed to their plots and schemes. Keep your life above board at all times. Find accountability partners who can and will keep you on the straight and narrow path. Be honest by not allowing obscurity in your life.
1 John 1:7 (NIV) “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” Kevin Robinson
May 17, 2016. Jesus wants to bless and make you so happy, but it might be difficult at times to receive his overflowing grace. The LORD spoke to His disciples in clear language to give them everything they needed by their asking, seeking and knocking. Some feel unworthy of such grace. Others feel that He was speaking to His earthly disciples of His day, but not to us today. Ask, seek and knock for the priceless bounty of His will to bless.
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Ras Robinson
May 17, 2016. There is nothing that can be done about it now. I know you aren’t worried. You know the pitfalls of worry and keep worry far away from your psyche, but also keep bringing all thoughts captive to Me. Time does heal. that is, if you continue being honest with Me. I AM the Healer and have set it up that way. You know what to do and you’re doing it. This pleases Me. Continue to trust Me
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Bev Robinson
May 17, 2016. Be careful where you give your vitality. Don’t waste your time and energy on things which don’t have eternal value. Your life is precious and your time is limited. Therefore, be careful to what you give your strength and your time. Satan would love to drain your precious resources and your energy upon futile matters which bring discord and conflict. Guard your vigor with all your might.
Proverbs 4:23 (NLT) “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Kevin Robinson
May 16, 2016. One thing is clear concerning believers judging other believers. The end result when you insist on judging them is that you will be judged in return. If you believe this imperative not to judge and live by it, you will inherit blessings instead of returned judgments. Your reward will be in kind for the very judgment you make. Instead of judging, why not look for ways you can bless and encourage that believer? Give it a try.
Matthew 7:1 (NIV). “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” Ras Robinson
May 16, 2016. It was time to move ahead you thought. Then something happened that caused you to hesitate. Now what to do? Wait. There is no hurry. You don’t have to make a quick decision. Waiting on Me is a good thing. Rushing into something before you sense it is right is not good. I will show you when to move and when to wait. Stay in close touch with Me. Fear not. You will make the right decision.
Psalm 27:14 (NIV) “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Bev Robinson
May 16, 2016. It is essential and vital for you to take care of yourself. Too often you get caught up being so busy helping others that you forget to take care of your own cares and needs. Do whatever it takes to keep yourself up and running and in good health spiritually, emotionally and physically. Though people may depend upon you for many of their own needs, take the necessary measures to guard and protect yourself from unwanted fatigue.
3 John 1:2 (ESV) “Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” Kevin Robinson
May 14, 2016. Great joy awaits you. Wait for it. Then pursue it with full force and vigor. Believe that you will experience God’s presence with unending joy in the LORD. Considering His presence, make every effort to cleanse and purify yourself as the Holy Spirit convicts you. You will be amazed to experience God’s grace to keep you close to Him. He desires intimacy with you just as you crave it from Him. Great and joyful times are ahead.
Deuteronomy 28:47 (NASB) “Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things.” Ras Robinson
May 14, 2016. I know you have endured things for the sake of the children. This is laying down your life for them, which is one of the highest of callings. This isn’t being a victim. Instead it is being more than a conqueror, a victor. I too laid down My life for My children. This means we have a special fellowship of suffering. You know some of the ways I suffered and I know all of the ways you have suffered.
Philippians 3:9-11 (NASB) “and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.” Bev Robinson
May 14, 2016. It is not too late to make amends to something you have done which was misconstrued. Do everything within your own power to reestablish and maintain a positive rapport with those with whom you have fellowship. Satan loves to bring division and discord among believers and he will stop at nothing to destroy relationships within the body of Christ. Trust and rely upon My Lordship to keep the peace among your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Isaiah 58:12 (NASB) “Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the age-old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell.” Kevin Robinson
May 13, 2016. Have you ever received or given the spiritual ceremony of washing another’s feet? Jesus felt strongly that this act of sacred humility and obedience was essential for believers. As one who witnessed this ceremony when I was around eight years old, it is carved into my memory as an awesome spiritual act. Since then I have practiced it many times. Each time it causes tears to flow. Pray about whose feet you need to wash.
John 13:7-8 (NASB) “Peter *said to Him, “Never shall You wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.” Ras Robinson
May 13, 2016. First the natural and then the spiritual is something to remember. When you see something in the natural that portrays the spiritual, it’s never to cause you fear. What you see is to let you know I know and to rely on Me body, soul and spirit. Even though what you see is a blow to your soul, you can get through it coming out on the other side victorious. Don’t take revenge. Let Me handle this.
1 Corinthians 15:46 (NIV) “The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.” Bev Robinson
May 13, 2016. Shower those around you with love and compassion. Let your appreciation for people who are near and dear to you be evident to them. Too often you get so caught up with your everyday affairs that you lose sight of things that are so important in the here and now. Take the time to offer up genuine praise and thanksgiving to those who you associate yourself with on a daily basis. Find creative ways to encourage one another.
Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Kevin Robinson
May 12, 2016. Rejection is often used in God’s plan to show His intended direction. God closes and opens doors at His discretion. This can be painful for the one who wants to be in complete control of their lives. But to the one who is fully committed and yielded to hearing God for direction, this is not a big issue. Trust and obey for there is no other way. God adores you. Yield now.
Luke 4:24-26 (NASB) And He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown. But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land; and yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.” Ras Robinson
May 12, 2016. I have called you to rest not strife. I have made provision for that rest. My rest is vital, the place where good happens. When you’re striving, you aren’t resting unless you’re striving to enter My rest. Yes, strive at that. Read My word. Find out who I AM and what I do. Yes, there is a fight, but fight while resting. The fight of faith is done from a place of a victory I have already won.
Hebrews 4:11-12 (ESV) “Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 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
May 12, 2016. Be holy as I AM Holy. Live your life in a manner that is above reproach. Will you live your life on a higher plane instead of settling for a second rate form of Christianity? There is nothing greater for you to do than to live a lifestyle of sanctification. Since you have been set apart for My glory, be ever aware that you can and will be used by Me to be a blessing to others.
Deuteronomy 14:2 (NLT) “You have been set apart as holy to the LORD your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure.” Kevin Robinson
May 11, 2016. Most of us at times feel we are not doing our job well enough. We look at our life and what we do and we see good things, but we believe we could do much better. It may be that even leaders whom you thought were close and appreciative, have become your critics to the point of doubting your integrity of life and ministry. You need to pass this test. Testify of the things Jesus has done through you.
Matthew 11:2-3 (NKJV) “And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?” Ras Robinson
May 11, 2016. What you’re doing is right. At times it feels like it’s not. But keep trusting and let those times pass you right on by. You are good at doing what you’re doing. Others don’t know it, but I know. You play your life to Me and not to others. This is a good thing. Keep doing that. I AM the coach. Don’t let anything get you off your game. Play to win and all will win.
Psalm 10:16 (MSG) “GOD’s grace and order wins; godlessness loses.” Bev Robinson
May 11, 2016. Follow the lead of the Holy Spirit and imitate the way He moves. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman and does only what God the Father gives him instruction to do. He does not act of His own accord, but responds quickly and accurately to the pinpoint guidance He receives moment by moment from the Father. Follow His lead in how He moves politely and kindly with grace and mercy. Learn to act not of your own will but His.
Romans 8:14 (NLT) “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.” Kevin Robinson
May 10, 2016. Be honest. There have been times when you felt that God was either dead or did not care about you. You felt lonely and cut off from most things you treasured. But you are not a quitter. You never run away and hide. Instead, you act on the reality that God has in fact not left and that He has never been more alive than now. He says today, “You are alive and well with Me.”
Psalm 10:1 (NLT) “O LORD, why do you stand so far away? Why do you hide when I am in trouble?” Ras Robinson
May 10, 2016. Laying down your life for others is not binding you as a person. Quite the opposite is true. Laying down your life propels you into a new realm of His glory. Be sure you have God’s instruction regarding for whom you are to lay down your life. Don’t get into a “have to” mentality. The Holy Spirit will lead you regarding whom, when, where and how, but let your throttle be wide open to opportunities.
Mark 8:34-35 (NLT) “Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.” Bev Robinson
May 10, 2016. Of all the things you could lose, hope is not one of them. Place a guard around your mantle of hope because it is from that vantage point where you will gain the perspective of how valuable hope really can be for you. Let other matters of your heart fall by the wayside but never allow yourself to contemplate losing any form or fashion of hope. Keep Me as the primary focal point of your lifelong hope.
Proverbs 13:12 (NASB) “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Kevin Robinson
May 9, 2016. If you don’t have hope, seek the LORD for His supply. His kindness is forever and His favor is for a lifetime. Never allow the nations and their cultures to be your inspiration and guide. Seek first God Almighty and His ever living truth revealed in His word. If at first you do not ascertain truth, keep digging until you find that pure vein of gold. It will never tarnish nor shrink in any way. Latch onto hope, never letting go.
Psalm 9:15 (NIV) “The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.” Ras Robinson
May 9, 2016. “In everything give thanks” is something you have heard. It may be hard to understand, but it’s an important truth. All that has happened in the past has helped make up who you are today. All that is happening now will be a part of who you are becoming. Allow Me to help by surrendering it all. Give it all to Me. Forgive all and bless everyone. I have recorded your destiny since before you were born. Believe and act.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 (NASB) “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit.” Bev Robinson
May 9, 2016. My word is the most reliable source of inspiration, guidance and instruction known to man. Let Me encourage you from the pages within My word where writers of old received divine instructions on what to write. Within each passage, you will receive revelation knowledge about who I AM and what I AM all about. Place your complete trust in My word because it never fails nor will it ever disappoint you. Experience life giving truths every single day.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV) “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Kevin Robinson
May 7, 2016. Is your heart right? Have you been to the hill of the LORD to examine yourself before Him? Your shield against disaster is the person of God Most High. He is and always will be on your side because you have humbled yourself and received His righteousness in good standing with Him. He continuously examines your heart to see if you are what you say you are. He is looking for repentance, purity and His righteousness in you. Make Him proud!
Psalm 7:10 (NIV) “My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.” Ras Robinson
May 7, 2016. Reach out. You will see what a difference it will make in your attitude. I know you are downcast. I know what is happening. You say, why will it change my feelings and attitude? Because you will be performing My word. When you get outside yourself, good things happen. One thing, it gets your mind off yourself and your circumstance and another thing is My word does not return void. You help others and you help yourself.
Luke 6:38 (NASB) “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” Bev Robinson
May 7, 2016. Oh that you could and would only believe. I know you have had a few setbacks in the belief settings within your heart and now is not the time to lose hope. Don’t allow doubt and unbelief to enter your thought life though it may be easier said than done. Learn to take baby steps of faith in your daily walk. Surround yourself with people whose faith is strong. Keep pressing into My kingdom living.
Matthew 17:20 (NASB) “And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Kevin Robinson
May 6, 2016. You have discovered much joy in serving and giving as privately as possible. To serve and give without calling attention to what you have done creates joy in your heart. It also lays up rewards in Heaven for you. Without looking to man for affirmation and appreciation, focus instead upon staying committed to pleasing God. Keep your heart pure from seeking the approval and praise except from God. Let your Father reward you.
Matthew 6:1 (NLT) “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” Ras Robinson
May 6, 2014. Something is still hard to believe. Things will be going normal then bad thoughts and scenes pop into your mind out of nowhere. You are following Me and you continue trusting Me to show you what to do. Keep this up. You have done this before and thought you wouldn’t have to do it again. Don’t let the thoughts and scenes linger. You can’t help if they pop up. You can keep them from taking root.
Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV) “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Bev Robinson
May 6, 2016. Being sorry just doesn’t do the job and many see it as just lip service and a quick way out of ducking responsibility. Ask Me to reveal to your innermost being the truth of godly sorrow which leads to repentance. Don’t give opportunity to your flesh to merely brush off the fact that regret does not cover the full meaning of repentance. Let My Spirit within you embrace true sorrow to never return to former sinful ways.
2 Corinthians 7:10 (NIV) “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” Kevin Robinson
May 4, 2016. Cry out to God no matter what is happening or may happen. Having Him on your side gives you the winning edge in the battles you face. Therefore, be wise and humble yourself so you can openly bow to God. He has your interest at heart. Take Him up close and treat Him as the friend you have dreamed of having. Cry out and make your dependency on the LORD obvious while seeking grace.
Psalm 4:1 (NASB) “Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; be gracious to me and hear my prayer.” Ras Robinson
May 4, 2016. If you operate on your own wisdom, you will miss the best wisdom. This isn’t a rebuke. It’s a reminder. Sometimes you don’t want to bother Me with your needs thinking, “I’ve got this, LORD” When this is done you have missed My wisdom. It is good that you have wisdom, having learned much from the past. But My wisdom is far greater. You need wisdom to get you out of the quagmire. Ask Me.
James 1:5-6 (NLT) “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” Bev Robinson
May 4, 2016. It’s time to get things moving and underway. Stop putting off the things which need to be done right now. Now is not the time to allow procrastination to come into play. The time is urgent for you to pass through the window of opportunity before it closes. Don’t allow Satan any leeway or breathing space into the plans I have established for you. Seize the day under My tutelage and conquer the difficult.
Proverbs 6:4 (NLT) “Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do.” Kevin Robinson
May 3, 2016. Wrapped in swaddling clothes could be a metaphor for how your heavenly Father sees you. You are lovingly protected and set free and continually blessed by Him. In Jesus’ name, may His deliverance and blessings catch up to and overtake you. Several godly and loving individuals have given to me original works of their art. Most hang on the wall of my study office reminding me of their love. Let God send and give His love to you even as you give yours.
Psalm 3:8 (NIV) “From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.” Ras Robinson
May 3, 2016. Keep your heart pure before Me. I know thoughts come that you can’t help and occasionally you act on them. When you realize it and miss the straight arrow mark I have placed before you, you repent quickly. May that always be so, and it will. You spot Satan quickly when he tries to pull the wool over your eyes. Beloved, keep on doing that and I have great things ahead for you. I always have good for you. Stay pure.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB) “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Bev Robinson
May 3, 2016. Embrace the notion of being willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the task at hand. Right now no one else can meet the need that needs to be taken care of like you can. It is vital for you to press forward, knowing that your work is not in vain or futile in any way. Listen attentively to My voice and be obedient to My instructions. Align your spirit willingly with Mine.
Matthew 26:41 (NIV) “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Kevin Robinson
May 2, 2016. Days are coming when you will need keen discernment about people you know and will yet come to know. It is good that you are already cautious, knowing that some could overly complicate or do damage to your vision and destiny. If your spirit bears witness to these words, then the LORD says, “You can entrust yourself to Jesus. He knows all men without need for their testimony because He knows what is in a man. Trust Jesus.”
John 2:24-25 (NIV) “But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. He did not need man’s testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.” Ras Robinson
May 2, 2016. Every time thoughts flood your mind that cause you pain or that do not glorify Me. Stop them. How you say? Take all thoughts captive. Follow absolute obedience to the Father’s will. Bind the devil. Read and meditate on My word which applies to what happened. Believe My Truth. Act on My Truth. Truth will wash your mind. Hide in Me. I love you. There is nothing that can separate you from My love. Forgive again.
Matthew 18: 21-22 (GW) “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked him, “LORD, how often do I have to forgive a believer who wrongs me? Seven times?” Jesus answered him, “I tell you, not just seven times, but seventy times seven.” Bev Robinson
May 2, 2016. Let your life be constant in all matters of your heart and mind. Live a life full of genuine character in every aspect of your walk with Me. Exhibit moral excellence full of grace and integrity in the midst of chaotic times. Do the right thing even when no one is watching what you say and do. Live out your Christian walk knowing that you are an example to others of how godliness should be portrayed.
1 Peter 1:15-16 (NLT) “But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” Kevin Robinson
