Cast Up A Highway



Do You Know Holy Spirit?

Posted on September 25, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Good morning Lord! I like meeting with You early when it's still dark out; it’s more like it’s just You and me here. How incredible is that? You, who created the universe in all its far reaches, are meeting with me here this morning. You knew the Hubble telescope would reveal some of the mysterious beauty of Your creation, and I am enthralled with the lovely gifts You have hidden in the hugeness of the universe for us to find. Father in all Your wonder and glory, You thought of this surprise to delight us. Thank You!

You are my God, worthy of all my respect and praise and worship. In all of the ‘me’, there is not the ability to give You what You deserve; but in me is the desire to honor and praise You. Jesus left Holy Spirit to help me to do this, and to convict me when my attitude falls short of total love and honor for You.


My God, my Triune God, You have me covered. You created me; You saved me; You have come Yourself, Holy Spirit, to guide and protect me throughout my life on earth and lead me to my home in heaven. What more could I ask?

Third person of the Godhead Holy Spirit, You are often misunderstood. You are the One Jesus left with us to help us, to answer our questions, to speak messages we need to hear. In the beginning You hovered over the darkness until Father spoke, “Let there be light”, and You created light. Jesus did not perform miracles until He returned from His fast in the desert and had been filled with You Holy Spirit [Luke 4:18]. Holy Spirit, we so miss it when we do not know You as You truly are. We need to establish a close, intimate relationship with You. Holy Spirit, help me to deepen the bond between us. I want to truly know You, honor You, and be immersed in knowledge and in touch with You.

Do you know the Holy Spirit?

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.
