Cast Up A Highway



Scrape Off the Scabs

Posted on November 1, 2013 at 4:50 PM

All praise to You Lion of Judah! My Jesus, You made it all possible. Joy is possible because of You. Thank You. Holy Spirit, You are here and I don’t know all the divine intricacies of how it all works nor do I need to.

What is, is, and I’m so glad it is! I live life with God indwelling me; now I just need to bring that truth fully into the core reality of my being. . . grab each moment retrieving it, subjecting it to this truth, living it completely as Holy Spirit directs. Sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it?

Reality check! Life is so busy now that once my quiet time with the Lord ends, time takes over~sometimes feels like I’m a robot with time as the controller. How to redirect that? OK. Pressure is off for a little while. Lord, I open myself to Your guidance; help me re-sort my life.

Holy Spirit You are making me more vulnerable to You, burning off the calluses covering the wounds of my life. Every hurtful comment, every painful memory, every rejection, every sore scrape of ‘not good enough’ have scabs or calluses of protection which blocks the love of God from going in and coming out.


You are calling for permission to burn these guards off the emotional vulnerability of my soul. You want me to trust You to shield these painful places, to heal them.

Oh God! Leave that room of misery and heartache I’ve worked so hard at sealing up, in Your hands? You want to unseal the door? You say Your love can heal if I permit You to take off the calluses and scabs? You ask me to be vulnerable to you and to trust You.

My God I promised to submit to You, and if You tell me this is the next step, then fearful tho I am, I’ll give my permission to You. It’s scary, but I know if You say it is necessary, and this is the time, then it is. I bow down before You and worship You.

What vulnerable places in you require cleansing and healing? Do you allow God to do it?

                                        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.
