Thought for the Day: Esteem Others

Scripture verse: Ephesians 2:3&4  Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Robin's heart: Through many trials I am slowly developing a servants heart just as our Lord commands. I am learning to be sensitive to the needs of those around me,  and not only focused on what I need. If we focus on being a blessing to others, and then act in a way that conveys a message that we are genuinely concerned for their welfare, then I find an atmosphere of peace is created. Then the Lord Himself sees to it that our needs are met. We are servants to others and then the Lord calls us friends. 

John 15:15  No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

Just Say No!

Galatians 2:20  I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

                                           Message received 11/23/2017  9:11a.m.

Precious children. You are greatly loved. Walk in my Love no matter the circumstance or challenge. Be a part of the answer and not a part of the problem. Your flesh shall want it's way, but if you are led by My Holy Spirit you shall not go astray. Your enemy comes to steal to kill and to destroy. If you feel negative emotions awakened you can be assured your enemy is near. He knows your weaknesses and produces fear. Walk in love and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Love is patient and kind. It is not puffed up. It takes no account of the wrongs done to it. Trust Jesus to take the negative and turn them around for good. He works wonders where darkness lurks. He brings light and love where the enemy hides. Invite Him in to your adverse situation and then stand still and see His salvation. Listen carefully to this instruction because the enemy wants nothing more than to see your destruction. My grace shall help you resist yielding to evil, so choose to listen to overcome the temptation towards retaliation. Your flesh is naturally in agreement with the enemy, so you must diligently resist this temptation in order to receive the victory. Things may not change immediately, but remember this: just because you are not seeing the blessing does not mean you are not winning. You are in a faith vs flesh fight. The only way to win is to depend on the Holy Spirit. Have faith in God. He is your friend.

Thought for the Day: Inheritance

Scripture verses: Colossians 1:12 and Ephesians 1:18

Colossians 1:12  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light

Prayer of Ephesians 1:18  I pray that the eyes of our understanding are being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.

Robin's thought: Our walk begins with the Lord Jesus Christ through an act of surrender and repentance which causes us to unwrap His gift of salvation. Afterwards there is a walk with Him to enter into His "promised land". Teach us Lord to receive your full inheritance in Christ that we may please you and bring glory to your name. Philippians 2:15 that we may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom we may shine as lights in the world..

Thought for the Day: Draw From the Well

Scripture of the Day: Isaiah 12:3

Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Robin's heart: The most important time to go to the word of God is when you are troubled. The troubles come to prevent you from drinking from the wells of salvation. Jesus Christ is the only answer to every problem. As the above scripture says, joy will be produced while you are drawing from the well. Let nothing hinder you from staying refreshed in Him.

Isaiah 26:3  You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in You.

Pursue Love

1 Corinthians 14:1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.

Pursue: follow in order to catch, seek to form an intimate relationship with God in a persistant way, continue or proceed along, investigate, explore or discuss, synonyms: inquire, research, examine, scrutinize, delve into, analyze.

Yesterday I was talking with a new friend, and I was attempting to explain the idea of how many people lack an understanding of spiritual gifts. I was explaining that it is God's desire that we all prophesy and that we are to desire spiritual gifts. The gifts are for all of us not just a select few. Well this morning I woke up, and was quietly lying in my bed and talking with the Lord and reviewing my conversation that I had the previous day with my new friend. I was continuing to think about how we should desire spiritual gifts, but especially that we may prophesy. At some point, I decided to get out of bed to go and sit in the living room. I grabbed my bible which was next to me and went and sat down in my recliner. I opened my bible to randomly begin reading, and guess which scripture my eyes first fell upon? 1 Cor 14:1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy! I was amazed! I sat there for a little bit thinking about this scripture and the Holy Spirit started giving me a strong impression of the entire stripture. He was pointing out to me the first two words: PURSUE LOVE. He was megaphoning this idea that this is partly why there are so many people falsely prophesying today. They are pursuing the gifts instead of pursuing LOVE,WHO IS GOD. They are functioning in the gifts without establishing first a foundation of Love. Brethren let us pursue love, and desire the gifts. Otherwise we fall into another one of Satan's traps. Remember there is nothing new under the sun. He only uses the same tactics over and over again to ensnare us.....Pursue Love.......Love is the answer....

Dream: Jesus is the Donald

I had another one of my short strange dreams on the night of 11/15/2017. At first I was so perplexed by it's content that I doubted it's source, but throughout the day it became clear to me that it was a God dream. This dream is one of His most touching messages to date. I wasn't sure if I should post it publicly because it was a message to me personally, but I was comforted by the Holy Spirit that yes, share the dream. In my mind, this blog was created for two purposes. One is to encourage the brethren, and second, I keep this blog to record my relationship with the Lord in hopes that one day my family will read it.

Dream: I was standing in a small living room. Right in front of me was a white couch kinda like the picture. I was positioned in a way that I was standing behind the couch in the middle looking towards the front of the couch. There was a man sitting on the couch. I recognized him to be a boyfriend from highschool who's name is Donald. I was looking at his profile. In other words he was looking forward as he sat on one end of the couch so I was looking at him from the side. Standing in front of the couch directly across from me, were twins who looked exactly like Donald but were miniature versions of him. They were the size of maybe 8 year old boys. All three were dressed exactly alike in a simple white clean gown. As I was looking at the situation, Donald stood up and came to meet me around the back of the couch. His face was so beautiful and his hair was long and brown. His teeth were really white as he genuinely smiled and greeted me. He embraced me and seemed so happy to see me. No words were spoken. End of dream.

Before I share the interpretation I would like to give a little information to help explain why this dream was so meaningful to me. I was born again in 1990. I served God until my divorce in 2005. At that time I plunged head first into a self destructive lifestyle. After several years of experiencing repeated mistakes, God called me back to Himself which was 3 years ago. The last 3 years have been extremely difficult. I have gone through just about every trial you can imagine. The good news is I'm still here despite rejection from friends and family, financial changes, health attacks, and worst of all I have battled cruel demons who would have liked nothing better than to kill me. But I'm still here serving our Great Father God and our Lord Jesus Christ and hopefully doing what I'm supposed to be doing even though I tried to quit and threw temper tantrums many times. With that being said I will now share the interpretation.

Interpretation: The setting of the dream symbolizes the spirit realm. White colors and a living room give an impression of life in Christ Jesus. Donald's name means ruler of the world and he represents Jesus. Jesus is sitting because those in authority are seated as others stand and are prepared to serve Him. Jesus has two look alikes because just as God is three parts so are we. We are a spirit being but have a soul which is our mind and emotions, and we live in a body. The point of this dream was that the Lord was telling me that I have finally reached a place in Him where my spirit which is indwelt by the Holy Spirit is currently strong and is leading my 3 parts. The twins represent my soul and my body. They were present but insignificant within the dream which reveals Jesus is on the thrown in my life. Only Jesus knows the battles I have faced and my preceived failures through them. Through the dream He is saying well done Robin. He measures success differently than we do. He sees our hearts. In closing, I hope this encourages anyone who may read this. Remember God sees every decision you make for His benefit. Nothing goes unnoticed by our Savior. We may keep track of our mistakes, but He already knows what we are gonna do before we do it when confronted with adverse circumstances, and He has made a way of escape. He truly loves us, and cares deeply about every aspect of our lives. He actually makes each of us feel like we are his only child. The moral of the dream is: Never give up! The Lord Himself is with you!

Thought for the Day: Watch Your Words

Scripture of the Day: Proverbs 17:28

Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips he is considered perceptive.

This proverb made me laugh. While reading it I was reminded of a piece of advice my Dad gave me growing up. He said " it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are stupid than to open it and prove it." He was speaking truth....

First Both Lion and Bear

1 Samuel 17:34-36  But David said to Saul, "Your servant was tending his father's sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I went out after him and attacked him, and rescued it from his mouth, and when he rose up against me, I seized him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has killed both lion and the bear, and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has taunted the armies of the living God.

2 Cor 4:8-10  We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed, we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. Always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

                                                  Message received 11/16/2017  4:04 a.m.

                              Oh give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever!

For this is the time of testing. Testing to show if you shall keep the faith despite adverse circumstances. This time is compared to a practice game in sports. How else shall you know your strengths and weaknesses if you are not tested? Then too the Master can then set your promotions and  positions. Did David fight Goliath without having fought smaller battles first? Certainly not. I prepared him in advance. He slayed a bear and a lion as My word says. Each of you have your own individual battles to fight in preparation for the final faith fight. Ultimately, you will have two choices. Trust the Lord God Almighty who is the God of all mercies or to concede to the spirit of Pride who shall attempt to turn you away from the Risen King. I prepare all My children to win. My Beloved Son has paved the way for you, but you must enter in. Would a military sargeant send out his soldiers untrained? Neither would your heavenly Father do such a thing. Fret not during tests. Know that your Lord is developing qualities within you for the rough seas ahead.

Song in my heart: The Lord is marching out in splendorrrrrr, in awesome majesty He riiiiiides....For strength, humility, and justice..... His mighty army fills the skiiiiiiies.
Oh give thanks to the Lord for His love endures foreverrrr......

Thought for the Day: Climb Higher

Scripture of the Day: Matthew 7:14

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Robin's heart: People tend to naturally want to take the path of least resistance, but usually this path is contrary to the will of God.  Following His perfect will is not easy, but helps create a humble heart within us, and allows the Potter to mold the clay. Proverbs 16:20 There is a way that seems right to a man but its end is the way of death.

Thought for the Day: Combat Boots

Scripture of the Day: Ephesians 6:15

and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace

Robin's thought: Everywhere we go we must be ready for unexpected conflict. We prepare ourselves by abiding in the Prince of Peace, and by being firmly planted on the Word of God. That way we won't be made to stumble and to possibly be knocked off our feet. Having a soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1

Fire Carriers

Isaiah 43:18-20 Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.

Revelation 19:12  His eyes were like a flame of fire; and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

                                                 Message received 11/14/2017  2:15 a.m.

And this is what gives us the victory, even our faith in Him. Eye has not seen nor ear heard the wonderous things coming upon your earth. Yes the calamities shall come, but they shall be met by My glory. At that time all shall hear COME! Come to the fountain and drink living waters! A fountain that forever quenches your thirst. A thirst and need to know the Lord! Drink and you shall learn of His goodness and great mercy. Drink and you shall learn of His love. Drink and you shall learn of His mighty plans. Drink that the longing you feel may be satisfied. Ye shall be cleansed and purified.

Then there shall be those who carry My fire. The fire carriers! They shall walk as I walk with eyes as flames of fire. They shall burn away the dross of the enemy. Burn his lingering effects away. Pain and sorrow shall be removed. Along with the haunting memories from times past. People exist with scars from past wounds. Yes physical healings shall be, but soulish healings are needed. Wounds from a lifetime of living under Satan's influences shall be instantly removed, and then all shall be able to see the truth. The truth of God's love uncovered and plain to see. An abandonment shall take place. An effect of My glory and presence shall cause you to leave everything that hinders you. All will give Me praise and glory. Ye shall be empowered to easily lay aside the weights that prevent and slow you from running your race. Oh, it is not over yet! The glory of the Lord will rise and be seen upon the prepared ones. They carry the flames of My fire. The greater works shall occur! How God anointed the Body of Christ with the Holy Ghost and with power who will go about as Jesus Christ did doing good and healing all who are oppressed of the devil. For God is with you.

Thought for the Day: Be a Doer

Todays proverb: Proverbs 14:23

In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty.

Robin's heart: It takes effort to successfully serve God. Be ye a doer and not only a hearer. Actions speak louder than words. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and He will provide everything you need to accomplish His plan for your life.

Thought for the Day: His Voice

I feel led to start sharing a daily scripture and it's meaning given to my heart. I believe the purpose of these posts will help me meditate on the word of God regularly, and let the wisdom soak into my spirit. I hope it helps readers too! My plan is to post them at 7a.m. Mon to Fri, unless the Lord gives a message or dream to replace the 'Thought For the Day.'

Todays proverb: Proverbs 13:10

By pride comes nothing but strife, but with the well-advised is wisdom.

Robin's heart: Those who give voice to their own thoughts and feelings risk provoking confusion and offense. Those who listen to the Holy Spirit receive correction and instruction in order to walk in the ways of our Lord and live a peaceful life.

Be Careful What You Drink

John 4:13-15  Jesus answered and said to her, " Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." The woman said to Him, Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."

Revelation 21:6  And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

Luke 6:45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

1John 4:1 My dear friends, don't believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you. Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying preachers loose in the world. ( The Message translation)

                                              Message received 11/10/2017  7:35a.m.

In times past God spoke to His people through the prophets, but today speaks through His Son. Now it is written in latter days many will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits. I warn you this day to be very careful to whom you listen. Impartation take place as you listen. Whether good or evil depending upon which spirit that person is yielding. Be wise as a serpent and hear what My Spirit says today. Corruption is only a voice away. Shun those that lead you astray and protect your spirit today. Guard your hearing. Ask Jesus Christ to cleanse you of the corruptions that dirty the living waters within you. Shall a stream flow both pure and corrupt? How can My light shine if the water is muddied with dirt? Its color becomes hazy and gray. Cleanse yourself this day. Repent of listening to the voice of the wicked. I will show you the narrow way, but you will only follow if you have a desire for the true way. Lay aside all your flesh desires and seek Jesus Christ with all your heart all your soul and all your mind. If you do this My child you shall find the truth and liberty shall comfort you. For I am the way the truth and the life. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. No one comes to the Father but by Me. Allow My Holy Spirit to lead. He is present to teach. He gives a green light to proceed. He gives a red light where danger breeds. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God these are the sons of God. Listen to Him today and you shall not be led astray.
