Cast Up A Highway



The Perfect Plan

Posted on May 11, 2016 at 6:35 AM

In a previous blog I spoke of a door and I could only see the light under it, but I was excited to go through the Door. Now I find this Scripture:

John10:7-9 (AMPC)

So Jesus said again, I assure you,

most solemnly I tell you,

that I Myself am the Door for the sheep.

8 All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers,

but the [true] sheep did not listen to

and obey them.

9 I am the Door; anyone who enters in

through Me will be saved (will live).

He will come in and he will go out [freely],

and will find pasture.

Last night, on the feast of the Ascension, a very dear long time friend went home to Jesus. He walked through the Door. We were going out to visit them later this summer, but a devastating accident cut his earthly life short. It is a heart struggle to remember in our sadness, he is now living in joy eternally with Jesus. For him I am so happy; for his wife and family and friends, it is difficult knowing we still have to live for a time here on earth without him. However, time is flying, so perhaps it will not seem that long until we join him in eternity.

I believe there are no coincidences; they are just circumstances in which God chooses to remain anonymous. Our friends wife and I were roommates and best friends. My husband was his roommate and best friend. Long ago there was a snowy night when she and I went out to “meet some guys”. Weather almost kept us home, but we went anyway. It was this night she met Brad. When I returned from a long summer trip, she told me they had gotten engaged. Although I was delighted for her, I was feeling a little blue wondering what I would do?

I smile in remembrance of Brad's soft spoken ways, his quiet sense of humor, and his caring nature. I particularly remember how his caring came out strong this one time~ it was the day when I was really feeling down, and Brad and Sharon invited me to join them that night to go have a drink together. And glory be, it was also the night that Bill and I met. . . Our dear friend invited his roommate (who just happened to be Bill) to come meet us when he got off work, and we all had a wonderful time together. Two weeks later, my husband of almost 50 years, and I were engaged. Need I say more?

God had interwoven His plan perfectly. His plan for us and His plan of salvation which is also perfect. Brad had a peaceful beautiful death; he just breathed his last 2 breaths and walked through the Door into Jesus arms. It was a time when heaven was touching earth and those present got to be a part of it.

1 Corinthians 15:55 (AMPC) O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?

Jesus conquered death. We have no need to fear death when we have chosen Jesus as Lord of our lives. Jesus' death and resurrection purchased salvation for us. Now we just admit we are sinners, need saving, accept His gift, and live a life full of joy on earth and in eternity. This is God’s perfect plan of salvation and it is open to all.

                                        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.
