Cast Up A Highway



Flesh May Howl

Posted on October 2, 2013 at 8:45 AM

It’s about submission. Ahhh! Such rebellion enters the soul at that word. Pride woven into the roots of the flesh stands up and howls! ‘I am great and smart and I submit to no one!’ Oh yes, it is a battle, a battle that must be fought and conquered! From Adam’s sin on, within each of us dwells the tincture of evil, and it must be cleansed for us to grow into who we were created to be. Rebellion lifts its ugly snout to roar in defiance.

Yet also within, the love of our Creator woos us to come and find Him, for He promises a fulfillment that exists nowhere else. A place within each of us houses a spirit that recognizes the call of our God. Eyes within open, ears within begin to hear new things. A hunger for ‘something else, something more’ begins to gnaw at our conscious mind. Pursuing it brings about a paradigm shift, a deeper understanding of life beneath the surface. A planted seed breaks open and begins to seek the light.

Sun rises beginning a new day in the spirit. A heart earnestly seeks truth and finds the treasure of a relationship with the Almighty. Submitting to God’s Word, it recognizes its sinfulness, repents, and asks for Jesus to come live within and redeem it. Joy builds like a pot beginning to boil and overflow.

New life commences ~ as a child born into the world ~ and as a child, the new spirit life within needs nurturing and teaching. Relationship flourishes with contact, so spending time in God's Presence, speaking together each day, waters the spirit and the soul bringing forth blossoms in rich fragrance and loveliness.

As the inner man feasts on the Word, new strength forms with revelation of truth and richer understanding of the enormity of God’s love for us. Heart construction built on righteousness forms a highway headed to God and a phenomenal eternity, carrying us through cities and towns of challenge and instruction, of strengthening and growth that fleshes us out to look more like Jesus each day.

And thus is launched the construction of a new highway conducting us from our heart to eternity in God’s heart.

                                        AWESOME GOD


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.
