Cast Up A Highway



Evil Came Calling

Posted on July 21, 2014 at 2:35 PM

Suffocated by noxious fumes, terrified by gunshots, the crowd, once excited to watch a new Batman movie, wanted nothing more than escape.

Evil came calling in that theater after midnight. Stealing lives, crushing hopes, bringing an onslaught of pain and suffering to victims, families, workers, and a city. To us evil is no stranger. He came at Columbine and Chucky Cheese. And this dark night’s deed brings not just its own hurt, but awakens hurtful memories from other nightmares.

Know I am not the only one who’s heart is crying out to stop this enemy onslaught! Tears brim my eyes as I watch the grieving families who speak of their loved ones. An ache rises up in my chest for the Moms and Dads and brothers and sisters who have lost a dear one. My heart hurts when watching a tough policeman almost break down on an interview as he speaks of what he and his men have seen and gone through. Helpless to bring youth back to life as they rushed to help wherever it was possible. The bloody carnage will return in nightmares and linger in minds for a long time.

Evil came calling in the dark of night. How appropriate! Evil cannot stand the light, flees from the light. That is the truth! So how do we keep evil from returning? WE carry in the light. Who is the Light? You know! Jesus is the light!

Open the doors of darkness in our schools and allow the light of truth to enter in. Return honor to God and the ten commandments to revive the light in our students. Give them a place to go with their pain ~ a Person to go to ~ One Who is capable like no other! Jesus loves like no other. He is the answer to many who feel hopeless. He is the dream restorer. Let us teach our children Who loves them more than any other, Who has the answers they seek. Build an inner highway to our God, a relationship to sustain and strengthen like nothing else is able to do.

O God almighty! I believe this tragedy is one of the warnings You are giving us. You are calling us to return to You, so You can bring our nation to salvation. Yes, eternal salvation and also earthly salvation ~ return us from a fleshly nation of selfishness to a nation of integrity and honor. I fear for us.

This is a call to all the sleepers whose only concern is “me, my family, and my possessions”. Open eyes to see the truly suffering; see the sneaky machinations of the enemy’s attempts to lead this country to destruction with immorality running rampant pulling our youth into the slime, debt overwhelming us, our kids and even grandkids, which also is downgrading us in the eyes of the world.

Evil hates freedom. But we are allowing freedom of religion to be gradually pushed out and eliminated; the second amendment is being threatened and no one even knows it. Our very constitution that formed this great nation is being attacked, and like the slow cooking frog, we are lazily unaware of the threat.


Wake us Lord!!

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
