Cast Up A Highway



Taking a Break

Posted on September 18, 2013 at 9:40 PM

Soft breeze, feeling like the breath of God, gently brushing my face, palm trees and tropical plants, birds of paradise, and a clear blue pool entrance my eyes as I sip a special brew. It’s quiet now this early morning. The Saturday night revelers are still in slumberland. The very softness of the air intrigues me. I could be seduced into staying here; well, not really, because after all, there’s a lot of work still to be done.

There are innumerable people in pain and needing Jesus; there are many who will be in hell if they do not get the Word. I’m convinced that each of us have some people who will only 'hear' the truth from us ~ it’s personal. if we do not tell them, it may never pierce their heart. That leaves us with one heck of a responsibility, aye? It isn’t as scary as it may seem, because Holy Spirit will prepare the way, He will open the heart to hear, but we must be willing to speak the Words He will give us. Dear friends, do not tarry overlong. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit nudging you, then take a breath and just speak! He knows the timing!

Today we must depart from this little ‘island’ of joy. It has been a few days chunked full of family and friends all tied together by a mission. We have a precious gift that must be shared. It’s time to move forward on our journey accomplishing the task set before us. . .

Home. [Yawn] More sleep required. So much more to be achieved! At the conference, it was a time of full focus. Home slams my mind with all that needs to be done now! Must make a commitment to get this house back in order! Hmmmm. Yes, this physical house, but even more my spirit 'house', that is my relationship with my Lord must be number one. After that there are phone calls, bills to pay, etc.

Thank You, my Lord, for this respite!

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.
