Wednesday, December 7, 2011


I drove to work this morning like a mad woman — late again. Already having a meltdown before I even left the house — frustrated, angry, and seething poison from every pore, I wiped away the tears as I checked my mirrors for those red and blue lights. Settling on what I would say if pulled over for such an obvious disregard for the law — "yea, I’m having a bad day, yes, I was speeding and that is against the law. Where should I sign and thank you for doing your job to help protect me from myself." Thankfully, I didn’t have that conversation with anybody but myself. And, I made it to work in one piece.

Then, doing what I do every weekday morning — boot up the computer, start up the email, and reassess the day’s tasks. And, doing what He does every morning, the Lord speaks to me through my inbox. Here’s today’s “What the Lord is Saying Today.”

December 7, 2011. The secret for overcoming attacks from the enemy is to call upon the Overcomer Himself who abides with you. The Spirit of God lives within you to exalt Jesus and to do so many other things. He will teach, lead, and guide into the ways and path of the Lord. There are times when you know not which way to turn. At other times you cannot accurately assess the attack or the attacker. This is when you humble yourself and consider yourself of no account compared to Who is abiding within you. This Abider is not passive, timid, or weak. He is altogether sufficient to win every battle and He gives you perfect strategy and tools for the battle. He will never leave you. Ras Robinson

2 Chronicles 20:17 (AMP) “You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord [Who is] with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.”    

December 7, 2011.  An opportunity is coming very soon. You will have a choice. I have been preparing you and drawing you. But, you are the one who will make the decision to participate. I am purifying a stream. This stream has been here for a long time, but now elements are coming together that will glorify Me in a way you have not yet seen. You will ask, “can this be true?” It is going to stretch way beyond your mind. You won’t understand it all. But don’t worry. Don’t touch it with any thought or hand of flesh. Stay in the Spirit and you will see things you have longed to see. Bev Robinson

1 Corinthians 2:7-8 (NASB) “but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;” 

As I read this, I felt the hand of God pulling me back from the edge — reassuring me that “He’s got this.” So, my prayer today is that He will hold me tight and move on my behalf as I relinquish anger and frustration’s control over me.
