Cast Up A Highway



Cure for Insecurity

Posted on May 30, 2018 at 7:00 AM

If you watch TV, at some point you must have seen those TV commercials advertising laundry detergent? See two stained shirts and with XYZ detergent the stains come out in the wash totally gone and "our little boy’s shirt is like new". Well that brought to mind how our life works under Jesus. The other day I was journaling and Holy Spirit convicted me that what I was writing revealed pride in my heart~ sinful pride.

So I repented and began praising God and asking Him to:

“Shine through all the dross, the garbage covering my soul. Cleanse me. . .  ”Then it hit me~ Oh, You already did that Jesus, on the cross. You cleansed all my sin away. I start afresh, new, a renewed person without stain or blemish. Along with that gift comes the automatic cleanse, so when I do make a mistake~ all I need do is truly repent with my whole heart, and the ‘stain’ disappears.

Holy Spirit, guide my thinking and my actions. Even though You Lord have made me new, I still have human nature that is working, and that nature once was ruled by satan. Now You rule me; I am Yours. You help me overcome the callings of my old nature. You have given me a paradigm shift that permanently changed my vision. I see now where the enemy is trying to lead my thoughts into doubt about Your goodness, Your faithfulness, Your love for me. It’s at these times that I rush back to quiet time with You so my mind and heart can be refilled with truth. You take me to Your Word where truth is found:


Psalm 119:105 AMP   Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Psalm 16:11 NKJV

                                        You will show me the path of life; In Your Presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

In the darkness and quiet of very early morning I come to You, Holy Spirit, bringing my typing fingers, writing my desire to sink ever deeper into You. From the depths of my soul rises a cry for more of You. I want to intermingle my spirit with You, because living close to You is my greatest need. You indwell me, and I rest in that joy. Sometimes You are the place I come when I need acceptance, convincing that I’m ok, doing Your will. Sometimes I am confident that I am doing Your will. Then there are days I feel unsettled about it, but I do not live by feelings, but by the Word of God. You are my touching point where I can reach out and experience You; where You, my God, enfold me inYour Presence.

In the Word You, Holy Spirit, bathe me in the truth and settle my heart. I belong to Jesus.

I belong to Jesus. My God brought me out of the world and translated me into the kingdom of the Son of His love (vs 13)

Colossians 1:9-14 (NKJV)

9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it,

do not cease to pray for you, and to ask

that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will

in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him,

being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power,

for all patience and longsuffering with joy;

12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified

us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness

and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Thank You my holy God! You are always ready to satisfy my need. Your Presence in Your teaching brings joy to my soul.

Do you come to Him for guidance? Our God loves us so much and is always ready to help us. Do you ask?

                                        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.
