But God- Let His Love Amaze You


We are continuing responding to questions and we are going to spend at least one more edition talking faith.

But God Image_Color_CrossI spent some time yesterday with a dear friend who is a pastor. His church is struggling a bit with finances. Here at Robinson we try to make the best product we can, but, like my friend's church, we trust God for the bottom line. Most of us are in the same boat of trusting Him for our finances. Those of us who are parents find that we need to trust Him for our children and grandchildren as well. As I age, I find myself trusting Him more and more for my health. We all can add many items to the list of things we trust Him for-every time I'm preparing a 'but God', I trust Him. As I prepare to deliver a sermon I entrust it to Him.

However, there is nothing that causes me to step out in faith more than this; to believe and receive and abide in the truth that my Heavenly Father is absolutely in love with me..., and that I am a new creation, a saint who still sins, and that I am His favorite son, there is nobody He loves more than me, and that He delights in me and finally, that I am always on His mind and in His heart. Seriously, when I spend time with those truths, they overwhelm me, make me laugh, cause me comfort and rest and mostly provoke me to return love to Him. When I don't take the time to dwell on them, I have a really difficult time believing them.

Therefore, let's all set aside some moments this week to thank Him for those truths and let His love amaze us.





If you want to know what someone really thinks, just listen to what they say after the word ‘but’ …so it is here with…”but God!”“

Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of messages of past years and months from Thomas. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.

You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?” Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16 inscription our outreach. In every new ScentBlocker jacket there is a laminated waterproof pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.

What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our business!

I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
