Cast Up A Highway



Challenge the Enemy's Plan

Posted on June 17, 2015 at 5:10 AM

Psalm 46:10 AMP

Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!

Who but our Almighty Creator God could dare make a statement like that, and we know it as truth! No matter how strenuously the enemy works, it will never be able to displace the mighty Lion of Judah! He shall be exalted among the nations and exalted in the earth. Those of us who know and understand our Lord God realize the truth. He shall be exalted!!

I was in an adult ed class the other night. We were asked to go around and say what we are thankful for. When it came to my turn, I said, “I am thankful for the Holy Spirit who indwells me and helps me live my life as my guide and mentor.” The atmosphere grew quiet with tension as though everyone was in shock. Later one woman came up to me and liked what I said, but spoke in a furtive kind of way like she did not want anyone to hear.

The enemy is attempting to remove God from every area of our society from our schools to our government. We stand back and allow it to happen. What are we? Afraid to shout out “Jesus is Lord”? Are we fearful of being known as a Christian? Can we not stand up to school boards that want to accept textbooks that lie? Can we not voice our Christian ideals in public? That’s the enemy’s goal~ to muzzle us. Will you bow down to it?

As a child I was known as a ‘gutsy little thing’. Not much scared me and I could be outspoken when I believed I was right. Perhaps that refusal to be intimidated is a trait God placed in me. Just look at His promise we can claim:

Psalm 18:2 (NLV)

The Lord is my rock, and my safe place,

and the One Who takes me out of trouble.

My God is my rock, in Whom I am safe.

He is my safe-covering, my saving strength, and my strong tower.

I recall a blog I wrote earlier where Jesus asked me if I would be willing to take His light into the encroaching darkness. I said “Yes”, not lightly for the spreading darkness was very intimidating. But so long as I had Him with me, I would go wherever He sends me. Our God has need of all His children to stand for His righteousness. Let us not be afraid, but speak out the truth and act with integrity in obedience to the Word of God.

Are you spending time each day in deep communication with Him? If not, it’s time to begin building your relationship. Then you will see Him as your strong tower; your closeness with God will be a stanchion to support your faith though every situation.

When was the last time your faith was challenged? Are you needing to strengthen your faith during these critical times?

I wish to express thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this dilemma. After researching through the online world and getting proposals that were not powerful, I believed my life was done. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the issues you've sorted out all through the report is a crucial case, as well as those which might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I hadn't noticed your web page. Your own training and kindness in playing with every item was very helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a step like this. I'm able to at this time relish my future. Thanks very much for your expert and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to propose the website to any person who wants and needs counselling on this subject matter.

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.
