September 29, 2014.  Better times are coming! Take heart in knowing I have forgiven you and your nation because you repented and turned to Me. The redemption of Abraham is your ticket to better times. All his blessings have now been given to you. In his case, Abraham believed in God while he was asleep. As a result of his faith, God counted him as righteous. He got saved. The result of unmatched blessings began to flow eternally and do until this very day for believers in Christ. Believers inherit all the of Abraham blessings. Believe and receive them.

Isaiah 29:22-24 (NLT) “That is why the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says to the people of Israel, “My people will no longer be ashamed or turn pale with fear. For when they see their many children and all the blessings I have given them, they will recognize the holiness of the Holy One of Israel. They will stand in awe of the God of Jacob. Then the wayward will gain understanding, and complainers will accept instruction.” Ras Robinson

September 27, 2014 Jesus is comfortable having lavish and expensive praise. The Lord is saying today, “Make sure nothing is more important in your life than worshiping and praising Jesus. Make Him look good before everyone you know and see. Commit to this privilege. I sent the Holy Spirit to lead you to a higher level in honoring your Lord. He is the Enabler and Helper to get you to Jesus. Helping the poor, which you so enjoy, is not as important as lavishing outlandish praise of Jesus. Daily make Him the crown of your life.”

 

Matthew 26:11-13 (NIV) “The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. I tell you the truth, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”  Ras Robinson

 

A Prayer for My Friend

Standard

Come to this place that I will take you.
A place that is carefree.
A place of freedom and joy,
this place few will ever see.

It is in this place that you will find rest
Come, find freedom for your soul.
Lay it all down here child
give me your burdens
and your fears
You were never meant to carry it
But you have carried it for years

Let my Streams of living water
wash it all away.
Run now child. .
Don’t pick it up again.
It is time for you to play

You see my child it is gone now.
There’s freedom for your soul.

September 25, 2014 Desire and seek after the Caleb anointing and your heritage will be insured, protected and handed down through generations. Caleb stood out from all the others of his day. He had a different attitude. Loyalty in all situations is one of the greatest qualities observed in Caleb. He believed the Lord and waited many years for his inheritance through Joshua. Finally at age 85, he asked Joshua to give what was promi
sed. Caleb’s greatest desire was given him, the land of Judah, just west of Jerusalem. Desire and seek the Caleb anointing. Enjoy it and pass it on to the generations that follow after you.

 

Numbers 14:24 (NLT) “But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of that land.” Ras Robinson

September 24, 2014 Love covers. Anything less than love falls short of the new commandment Jesus gave you in His New Covenant. Do not stop with just a puppy love which is shallow and does not last. Love in the same way God loves you. You were full of sin when He found you. But in loving you He paid for all your sins in the past, present and future. Now God does not see your sin but only sees someone He loves and has forever forgiven. This kind of love is what God desires you to have toward others.

 

1 John 3:23 (NLT) “And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us.” 1 Peter 4:8 (NLT) “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.” Ras Robinson

Foolishness

Standard

I have learned:

I Corinthians 1:18 NKJV

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

The Cross once was a myth to me
the story about a prophet
who hung from a tree..

I know now the truth
the truth has set me free
I have seen and I have known
the spiritual power of the cross
alive and active in me.

September 23, 2014 Have the attitude of the psalmist and declare God’s word over your life. There are perhaps many things you could complain about. Perhaps there are unmet needs you could mention, but what about going ahead and saying what God says concerning your life? Notice that not only does the psalmist declare God’s word, he also joins with God in making a declaration. Peace will rule your life when you make the word of God supreme within and without your mind, will and emotions. For in His word there is life, grace and truth forever. Blessed be the name of the Lord forever. Try it.

 

Psalm 23:6 (NASB) “Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Ras Robinson

 

Blah?

Standard

What exactly are the blahs? This headache of the soul cannot truly be defined as “depression” because you are still able to function if you have been targeted by the blahs. You are still choosing, however lethargically, to place one foot in front of the other. You are still able to interact with people, although your answers are not quite as scintillating or vibrant. You have not retreated into a cave yet although languishing underneath an afghan, a long nap and complete quiet sure are tempting. Every day. All day.

You are able to get up every morning, although you only function at half of your potential. You are not depressed, but neither are you joyful or excited about anything at all. Day after day come and go in a vacuum of gray nothingness. You smile now and then but it never goes all the way to your heart. Your get up and go … got up and went. Somewhere. You are just not sure where it got up and went to!

This is your daily game plan and guaranteed life strategy to beat the blahs. Every day that has been generously given to you by the Lord is a new opportunity to manage your day with praise. God gave you this day and designed it especially with you in His mind. He has a plan for you every single day of your life that always includes a liberal dose of praise. If you want the assurance that you are participating in God’s will for your life on a daily basis, it is vital that you start your day with praise, that you fill it with worship and that you end it with thanksgiving. From the first moment of consciousness to your last waking thought at night, make it a choice of your will to only magnify the Lord and never question Him. We are not a people who blame the Lord, we are a people who bless the Lord!
