You Get What You Pray For!

by Victoria Robinson

You get what you pay for is a common saying. While that is sometimes painfully true, another truth is that you oftentimes get what you pray for. The Word of God clearly shows us three examples of getting what you pray for. 

 You do not receive because you do not ask.

 You receive the wrong things because you should not have asked.

 You receive the right things because you asked according to His will.

It all comes down to the mot...

Que Sera Sera

by Victoria Robinson

In the Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Doris Day sang her now infamous song, Que Sera Sera.  She sang these words to her son who at the time could never have imagined he would soon become the victim of a kidnapper. Her idyllic life would soon be transformed into a terrifying nightmare.

Que Sera, Sera,

Whatever will be, will be

The future’s not ours to see

 Que Sera, Sera,

What will be, will be. 

This song echoes the di...

A Polite Conversation With Him

A Polite Conversation With Him 010712 2by Victoria Robinson

What in the world does learning how to use etiquette in conversation and learning how to converse with our heavenly Father have in common? Actually, quite a bit. Conversations with Him are what we think of as prayer. In the 1896 etiquette book, The Secret of a Happy Home, Christian author, Marion Harland, speaks of the satisfaction in telling one’s woes and sorrows to an interested listener.

“Undoubtedly there is a momentary satisfaction...

Oh my girlfriends, have you ever gotten into an argument with someone and then felt ashamed for your improper behavior? There once was a Greek woman who found out Jesus had come to town and rushed to ask Him for help. Her request was heartbreaking. She begged Jesus to drive a demon out of her daughter...

ASK 071311by Victoria Robinson

Our Lord and Savior told us three important ways to attain success. He said, “So I say to you:  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” He goes on to paint a picture of success, ” For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

He also reminds us that even in our sinful state we give good gifts to our children when he says, “Whi...

3 Days To Victory!

by Victoria Robinson

The queen and all her people were faced with imminent death. Would three days be the key to victory? Could three days bring you victory? In the third chapter of the suspenseful cliffhanger book of Esther, death was looming in the air. The evil villain Haman was preparing to kill all the Jews. When this heinous plan comes to light, our hero Mordecai turns to his cousin for help. His cousin just happened to be royalty...

Well-Nurtured Plants and Gracefully Carved Pillars

by Victoria Robinson

I love gardens and architecture, so as I ponder the words King David penned concerning his desires for his children, it paints a beautiful picture in my mind. He writes, “May our sons flourish in their youth like well-nurtured plants. May our daughters be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace.” I love how Matthew Henry so beautifully illuminates this passage.

It adds much to the comfort and happiness of parents in this worl...

Lady Sings the Blues

by Victoria Robinson

Hannah was a lady who knew how to “sing the blues” because of her troubles. Sadness had overtaken her life to the point that she did not even desire food. What she did desire was unattainable to her. Being barren had taken a great toll on her heart.

As we follow the story of Hannah, we see that the Lord gave her a son named Samuel who grew up to be a godly man. He continued his mother’s legacy of prayer...

Wait … Before You Speak …

by Victoria Robinson

The strong leader and prophet Nehemiah, set a wonderful example of being slow to speak for us all to follow. After hearing the distressful news that his fellow Israelites were in trouble, he immediately prayed. Not so amazing since that is the usual action one would expect of a godly man. However, following this scenario is something quite interesting concerning prayer...

What Do You Want?

by Victoria Robinson

Have you told your heavenly Father what you want? He is the only one who has the power to grant your request. It is futile to just talk about your desires. Tell the one who can make things happen. But be prepared—His answers are sometimes surprising. Imagine how the people who were with Jesus felt when they tried to quiet the blind man who called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”, only to see Jesus ask him what he wanted...
