Cast Up A Highway



What's Ahead?

Posted on August 2, 2013 at 6:15 AM

Another month has fallen off the calendar, a new month is marching relentlessly on! This truth has been gnawing at the edges of my mind ~ the last months are gone, truly no longer available. How would they stack up according to attaining God’s plan in my life? What have I accomplished for Him? How has my meeting time with Him each day been going? Am I truly focusing on just Him, or am I allowing distractions to lure me away from our precious communication?

Looking back, the month of July was like catch -up, because June was a month of total disarray. Much got accomplished as far as remodel and clean out, but every-day-time spent with my Lord was seriously disrupted. My spirit was not fed its normal diet of rich learning in the Word. I missed it.

In looking ahead the summer stretches out with a couple of trips and some goals to accomplish, but I plan quiet time with my God each day. The importance of spending daily quality time with our Lord is crucial, for it is paramount to every aspect of our life. Simply put, His input is a requirement for the best outcome in every area, in every situation, in every moment. Time spent with God, when in the morning, puts a kick start to our day! It gives Holy Spirit permission to be our personal guide through every challenge, every possible danger, and every choice we have to make. With Holy Spirit leading, we all can receive God's best and arrive wherever the Father wishes us to be, and there can be no better place!

Father, You always surprise us. We don’t have to know what You have for the day, we just trust and desire Your strategy to be revealed during it. Each morning as the day begins, we will be waiting for your message, Your will, to guide our path for that day. Following You one day at a time will get us to the place You have in mind. This morning we simply choose to be governed by You in each minute. We trust You Lord!

Thank You Lord for giving us the opportunity to grow in You as You grow in us each day. One day we will reach the ultimate objective: to arrive in Your heavenly Kingdom and to help as many people as we can along the way - especially to help bring them knowledge of You.

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.
