Cast Up A Highway




Posted on October 23, 2015 at 10:10 AM

Have you ever found you go to bed at night and all is well, then you wake up in the morning with a dark cloud over your head? Where did that come from? Of course, one can wake up to a sunshiny spirit as well. How much does “wake up mode” affect your day? I found a few of my wake up mornings in my journal~

1. Holy Spirit I thank You for Your help this morning; i awoke in a struggling frame of mind. I don’t know what this attack was, but I knew where to come for help in conquering it. You are God and have all the force and power of the Father and of Jesus. And You, Holy Spirit, love me as Jesus and my Father love me. You are on my side in every battle. You give me strength and truth. You convict and convert and purify. I bow before Jesus, my Lord, and say, “speak plainly to me Lord of all You would have me do. I bow down to You”.

2. Holy Spirit, thank You for Your faithfulness!

It began with a rainbow seen from my window rising in the western sky. There had been no rain, yet here was a beautiful declaration from the Lord that He loves me. Full bright colors declaring His love. What a wonderful way to begin the day!

3. A day of all things happening as they should, yet I am stationary. My table has been cleared and a green pasture has appeared before me~ a field with no paths and no roads lies at my feet. I wait in God’s rest for His next call. Peace is in His rest.

Hebrews 4:3

For we who believe [that is, we who personally trust and confidently rely on God]

enter that rest [so we have His inner peace now

because we are confident in our salvation,

and assured of His power],

4. Hassles attack, like computer glitches, but I will not allow them to destroy my peace. My God is so much larger, grander than a computer glitch, that I know He will be part of the solution. Aches develop from a flu shot, but I know they will work themselves out. Enemy is trying mind games, but I call upon the mighty Name of Jesus, and my mind remains at peace. I don’t know if I’ve ever been in this precise spot before, but I believe I will just relax and enjoy it.

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP)

But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]

Will gain new strength and renew their power;

They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles

[rising toward the sun];

They will run and not become weary,

They will walk and not grow tired.

Many beginnings, but how do the days end? What choices do I make during the day? That is where the real accomplishment is seen. Choosing the right response to situations and problems that arise is the key.

Knowing Jesus, His love for us, His desire to help us, and that He is always with us will support us all the way through. Like that morning when I got a traffic ticket, I had the choice of denial, pleading, or accepting. I knew I was wrong, so I admitted my fault very politely; I prayed for mercy, and the policeman reduced the fine. I thanked him and shook his hand. I know from the look on his face that surprised him. It felt good to know I had blessed him with my response. I'm quite sure that does not happen often. I also know God blessed me for Christlike behavior in a negative circumstance.

As we grow up in our parents home, we adapt behaviors like theirs. When we spend time each day with the Lord and in His Word, we become more like Him and responding His way becomes a matter of habit. Holy Spirit also is with us to keep us calm and guide us along a proper path.

What influences your day and do you have a tendency to react or respond to situations?

                                        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.
