Cast Up A Highway



Releasing that Bunched Up Mind

Posted on June 1, 2016 at 6:20 AM

As time continues its race dragging us into our future, I want to put my heels down and say “WAIT! I want to rest." I want to have Jesus’ rest where I just know His truth and walk thru my days; because sometimes I get too bunched up~ so many things seem to be pushing from behind calling for me to settle them. Then my mind wonders ahead and all the requirements are yelling at my mind ”Do me! I need to be done!” “I’m coming due!” Thus behind and ahead my mind feels beset by obligations.

It’s time to take a deep breath and spend dedicated time with my Lord. When I spend time with Him, my life quiets and stays balanced. So this morning I’ll focus on Him and rest on Him. He brings me a reminder from earlier this year~

“I will never, ever leave you. I will never, ever let you go. Where you go, I go. Where you put your feet, I am right there with you. Even the decisions that you might make that maybe could take you this way or take you that way, I am still with you. I have anointed you. I have equipped you to do My plan, My purpose through you. So don’t quit or give up or give in or lay it down but lift it up and bring it to Me and I will make ... I said I would not leave you. I said I would not leave you. I am with you today, tomorrow, for the rest of your life on this earth I am with you.

My grace is sufficient.My anointing is in you and My anointing breaks every yoke that tries to come against you. So when you worship, lift your heart when you lift worship unto Me. And that worship brings almost a scent, a smell... the only way I can say it, concerning what I called you to do. I have called you. I have anointed you. I have equipped you. I am with you and My presence will continually stay with you.

It takes me back to the basics. When I come to my Lord He “sits right down with me” and leads me into what He wants me to know and to focus on. He is always with me, and I can leave things in His hands and he will lead me with wisdom and energy. Sometimes I just leave things in His hands and it’s like He says, “I got this one.”

My favorite Scripture says,

Psalm 138:8 (AMPC) The Lord will perfect that which concerns me

Then I also reflect on Matthew:

Matthew 6:28-30 28

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,

for I am gentle and lowly in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.

30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Take these two Scriptures together and for me they create a place of rest, of freedom from pressure. Simply rely on our Lord’s ability… that’s it. Just learning how to get out of the way~ that’s really what grace is all about… how to get out of the way! Let God do His job.

Letting go and getting out of the way allowing Him to do His job coupled with believing His Word is what brings relief.

So if you’ve had a rough passage like my recent experience, Seek the Lord and pray out His Scripture promises. I am now feeling free and happy! No more bunched up mind; no more burdens; They are no longer mine. You see I traded them with Jesus. He has my burdens and I trust in Him and His Word, so no burdens are left. Trust Him, my friends, and you too can find His rest.

                                        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.
