Cast Up A Highway



God's Call to the Next Level 1

Posted on June 17, 2016 at 6:15 AM

Each morning I open my eyes early so I have time to spend with my Lord before the busy day begins. This morning~

“Thank You for wakening me, and for the good night’s sleep, Holy Spirit. Still trying to climb up through the haze though. If I don’t move I’ll just sit here in a stupor; a cup of coffee will help. Then please Lord, help me hear You, as I bow down before You. . .

He does not make me wait long~

You are the hidden One, the One not quite seen, but always there, Holy Spirit. In that sense, You are like the wind~ one can’t see it, but you know when it is there. I am reminded of a poem learned in first grade:

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I

but when the leaves are moving,

the wind is passing by.

You have indicated You are calling me up to the next level in my life. “It will be difficult, You warn me, but if you keep your eyes on Me, it will be ok.” I trust You, Lord!

It is going to be like a mountain that must be climbed. You Jesus are my strength. Difficult tasks can be made easy with You. I see a rugged mountain, and at the top is a luminescence. It draws me. Eyes on the peak, I walk back and forth at the foot by the base camp. You, O Jesus, are my base, my foundation:

Isaiah 28:16 Living Bible

But the Lord God says,

“See, I am placing a Foundation Stone in Zion—

a firm, tested, precious Cornerstone that is safe to build on.

He who believes need never run away again.

Yes, Jesus, You are my foundation, the cornerstone of my life. In a nearby tent is the equipment that will be needed to reach the top. It will be arduous, but with my Jesus all things are possible. I trust in Him, my foundation, to help get me up this mountain.

Dressing slowly I draw on a set of insulated long undergarments. They keep warmth close to my body [I keep tuned in constantly to my Holy Spirit connection.] Then I pull on layers of clothing to help keep body temperature regulated [each garment a prayer of my friends, and my prayers for His wisdom.] I clip warm gloves and a special hat to my belt~ truth Scriptures of His promises. He will guide my hands and protect my mind from enemy attacks. [Oh yes, there is an enemy who will try and stop me.]

Next comes my overall suit streamlined with special flexibility to move around and up difficult areas~ it’s threads are intertwined with Jesus’ words to add strength to mind and muscles. My jacket, custom-lined with heat retention feathers of the Father’s love, is my sure protection against storms I may encounter. Next come sunglasses with specialty lenses that show me the way to go, opening up a good path and shielding my mind from erroneous vision that indicates deceptive trails. My way will be clearly marked by my indwelling Holy Spirit.

I don the sunglasses, walk out of the tent into bright sunshine. Raising my eyes I smile at the beauty of the pristine whiteness reflecting off the peaks high above. The only sound~ an echo of the wind; it focuses my mind on the task ahead. The mighty peaks call out in God’s glory!

Psalm 46:10 AMPC

Let be and be still,

and know (recognize and understand) that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations!

I will be exalted in the earth!

For a short time I just stand, listening to the stillness with my eyes beholding His glory. I praise Him as my sight shifts to the trail head. I am ready; my protection is more than adequate. I inhale deeply and take the first step on my journey to the next level. Feeling His protection. . .

                                        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.
