Cast Up A Highway



"No Worries, Mate!"

Posted on January 15, 2016 at 9:20 AM

I’m sleepy as I sit before my computer this morning. If my eyes close, I’ll surely be asleep. Yet Holy Spirit has placed a message inside of me that must be let loose through this keyboard. As the unrest in our world and in our nation is growing, It seems many people are facing 2016 with trepidation. But with full assurance, i can say, “Don’t be anxious! We serve a good God; if You also serve the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, then you can say, like the Aussies, “no worries, mate!”

What gives this confidence? It’s knowing my Lord through His Word. He is all powerful and loves us so much, He will take care of us:

Phil. 4:6–7,

“Do not be anxious about anything

but in everything and by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving,

let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding

will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

When you know God has made a promise, He is always faithful to fulfill it when we trust Him and obey.

Psalm 91:1-2

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

Here it says, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High. . .” so that is a prerequisite for the promise. The Message Bible gives a hint to what that means:

“You who sit down in the High God’s presence,

spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow”,

(or always seeking God, desiring His presence, His ways, His will.)

As we choose to live a godly life, there are many Scriptures that assure us of God’s love and His protection. That’s why I know the future holds nothing fearful for me. When God and I converse together in prayer, I can ask anything of Him with absolute certainty that He hears me and will respond unfailingly with my best interests.

Do you have that deep relationship with our Lord today? You can have it by simply telling Jesus you are sorry for your sins and then accepting Jesus’ gift of salvation; ask Him to be Lord of your life. That is the beginning, for you are being reborn with God’s nature, becoming His Son or daughter, and then allow His new life to begin in you!

                                        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.
