APPLES and YAMS

Serious Business

Jacob exclaimed, “You are robbing me of my children!  Joseph is gone!  Simeon is gone!  And now you want to take Benjamin, too.  Everything is going against me!”  (Genesis 42: 36).    And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us?  would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side of Jordan!  (Joshua 7: 7)    Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth!  I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them does curse me.  (Jeremiah 15: 10)    And He said unto them, What manner of communications are these that you have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?  (Luke 24: 17)

We have all asked God “Why?”  Why are things happening this way, why are they happening at all?  What have I done to deserve this?  For example, Olive has to eat her apples and yams for the nutrition they provide her growing body.  She may very well be pondering why not donuts and coffee, or for that matter, why eat at all?  As Olive relies on her parents’ wisdom, God’s Word tells us to trust in Him alone (1 Corinthians 1: 8-10, 1 Timothy 4: 10).

We all tend to plan and predict that this or that is going to happen in our life and in the world about us, but we forget to make room for God’s ability, His sovereignty, and His ultimate plans for all mankind.  He most likely will not reveal Himself at your timing or in the way you think He should; however, He will show up in His “perfect timing” and according to His eternal and perfect plan.

Give God room to maneuvre in your life; trust Him to know what is best in all your situations.  He sees the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46: 10; Revelation 1: 8; 22: 13)!

    Let Your Heart Rest

    The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.
    Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you
    (Psalm 116:6-7).

    Scripture Focus: Psalm 116

    I know I shouldn¹t be upset, but I feel like rushing into God¹s presence and screaming, ³Help! Help! I¹m overwhelmed with problems and needs — my own and those all around me!²

    God gives the way to deal with heart turmoil. I¹m to rest in Him, trusting Him and reflecting on His goodness. In the past, He has heard my cry and responded in mercy. When I¹ve been burdened with sorrow, He has brought comfort. He’s been loving to me because His heart is full of compassion. Graciously, He protects even the undeserving, offering love and care to all who look to Him.

    So today, when my heart is so burdened that I can¹t even articulate my concerns, when my thoughts are almost paralyzed, I¹ll remember His goodness and tell Him, I will sacrifice a thank offering to You and call on the name of the Lord² (vs. 17). I won¹t wait to see God¹s answer before I thank Him. Resting is trusting even when I can¹t see how God can possibly answer my heart cries, resting is living in hope of what He will do.

    A Few Words

    By humility and the fear of the
    Lord are riches, and honour, and life.
    Proverbs 22:4

    Doesn’t matter what the politicians or
    the news media says.

    Doesn’t matter what the price of this
    or that is or isn’t.

    Doesn’t matter what the doctor say’s
    about it.

    God say’s: By humility and the fear of
    the Lord are riches, and honour, and
    life.

    Come out of that Babylon system and
    it’s worldly reasoning and keep your
    eyes on the Lord!

    In Christ,

  4. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forget or don’t understand that it’s ALL about Him, not us.

    To follow is a song God gave me in the night of Aug 17, 2011

    ANOTHER DAY TO PLEASE THE lORD

    Another day to praise Him

    another day to love Him

    another day to please the Lord

    Another day to worship

    another day to be glad

    another day to please the Lord (2nd time end)

    And when trials come

    as they surely will

    just get your eyes back on the Lord

    and He will see you through

    and it shall surely be

    Another day to shine through

    another day to be kind

    another day to please the Lord

  5. May I make a copy of Fathers Love Letter to give or mail to a friend or family member? I will be sure that it says Ken Hilton, Oracle Restoration Ministries on it.

    • Yes, it is a poem another has written and I a certain Ken would want many to read it to remind us of how much our Father loves us! 🙂

  6. What The Lord Is Saying Today January 22, 2012.

    Your mind seems to be spinning around on so many things at one time. It is becoming confusing. Even at night when you lay your head on your pillow, the spinning continues. Are you ready for Me to help you? I say unto you, “Pray unto Me that I will order your mind and emotions according to My will. If you do this, neither your will or the will of the world and the devil will prevail. The devil is the author of lies and confusion. His scheming is aimed at destroying both you and your peace of mind. I have given you the mind of Christ. His is a mind of peace. He is neither stressed nor anxious about anything. Therefore calmly submit yourself, your mind, will and emotions to the mind of Christ. Take a deep breath and allow Jesus to be Jesus in you as I intend and as you desire. You are precious to Me.

    Philippians 4:8 (NASB) “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

    Ras Robinson

    A promise came a long time ago. You have waited and waited. When will it come about? Is this it? Is this the time? You have wondered if this promise is really from Me. Go back to the start. Remember the circumstances. Ask again, “Is this really for me?” Don’t be afraid. You don’t want it if it did not come from Me. My promises are yes and amen. I always want the best for you. I always have good stored up for you and yours. I am always here to give you blessings. My promise is thorough and right on time. It comes at the time when it will be best for all.

    2 Corinthians 1:20-22 (NASB) “For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.”

    Bev Robinson

    • Once again; your hearing ears have picked up God’s Word and it speaks into my spirit with confirmation.

      God richly BLESS you both and your ministry as well as your outreach to the children in the Philippians!
