Cast Up A Highway



Soul Filled

Walking through the woods at night, the darkness is cut by the beam of a flashlight~ Jesus light is like that. There is a moon seen through the branches above, but it’s light is scattered and ineffective in following the path. We come to a clearing of sorts.

An almost full moon gives light to a field dotted with rock formations. We climb up one rock and find shapes comfortable for sitting. Jesus sits on the top; my seat is somewhat lower and has a form allowing me to rest back and look up. An atmosphere of silence reigns broken only by a cricket symphony. Some stars are twinkling; one moves across the sky~ a satellite perhaps? An airplane flying very high? But beyond is what fascinates me. Away from any man made lights, the heavens hold a beauty and mystery of their own. Hubble Telescope revealed the universe goes on and on containing beauty and forms foreign to and surpassing any on the earth.

Sitting on the rock does not reveal the far reaches, but the myriad of stars create a canopy of awe and splendor. A canopy suggests a covering, but actually these heavenly bodies have no end, no ceiling, they seemed to go on and on forever. The allure is not just their grandeur, but the seeming infinity of their reach. And I know only God is mighty enough to have created this wonder. Usually Jesus teaches me with words when we go on excursions, but tonight He allows the magnificence to speak for itself.

Jesus knows experiencing something is far more effective than just using words. In the Bible book of Ephesians Paul prays for the people about knowing the great love of God:

Ephesians 3:16-21 (AMP)

16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory

to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man

by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide,

make His permanent home) in your hearts!

May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp

with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love]

what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];

19 [That you may really come] to know

[practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ,

which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience];

that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God

[may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and

become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

The darkness renders a feeling of being totally alone in the universe where the glory of the heavens is experienced without distraction. It feels like the jeweled magnificence of the skies reaches down within my soul and fills me with awesome wonder. Speaking of the universe or even seeing the fantastic Hubble pictures cannot duplicate this experience. I have encountered my marvelous God in His Creative glory flooding me with Himself.

Jesus looks at me with that gentle loving smile as though to say, “See, now do you get it?” Indeed I do. God is magnificent in His glory far beyond my reach, yet is He also my loving Father touching me with His Presence, filling me with His love.

I am complete in the moment.

Have you experienced the love of God? When was the last time You felt filled with His love?

                                        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.
