Cast Up A Highway



(5) Our Hearts Are For God; But There Is An Enemy

Posted on August 17, 2016 at 7:50 AM

Lord, many of us want to live our lives for You. In these end time days, the enemy is working mightily, sending out his demon forces to lie and try to decisive us. We ask for Your wisdom to recognize his deceptions, and as Jesus’ ambassadors to use His authority to defeat the enemy’s every attack, and evict any demon that tries to come against us.

Unfortunately, the enemy knows us well and finds our weaknesses to try and lure us back into the worries of the world. But You, my Jesus, have defeated satan for us. We now have the authority of Your mighty name as a weapon to evict the enemy from our lives. We may need to do it on a daily basis, but each time we claim our trust in God and His promises as weapons, our faith grows stronger, for You never fail us Lord!

I learned this by experience. The enemy has been trying hard to attack me. He knows my vulnerabilities. He comes against me in my quiet time with demons of distraction; there have been demons of depression and oppression against me. These two were strong and made some headway until Holy Spirit keyed me into their maneuvers, and reminded me that I have the authority of Jesus Name to evict them from my mind. That I did do! Now they can no longer affect my thinking. I am free.


It is not necessarily that easy all the time. The enemy likes to attack at night when I am usually sleeping; but if I wake up, it's like buzzing bees making mince meat of my mind flooding it with all my vulnerabilities, i.e. financial, find actives for grandkids coming for the weekend, fear of injury on trip, need to do’s before leaving on trip, shopping for trip, packing, and more. . . Finally I get up and pray in my spirit language for a short time then go back to bed. My mind calms down and I'm able to sleep.

Once we claim Christ as our Lord and Savior, we have the victorious ability to use the authority of the mighty Name of Jesus:

Philippians 2:10 (NLV)

So when the name of Jesus is spoken,everyone in heaven and on earth and under the earth will bow down before Him.

It is a learning process. We find Scriptures like the one above teaching us how to operate in and under the auspices of the Holy Spirit; how to call upon the name of Jesus and the power of His shed blood. You know, we do live in Jesus Kingdom, and living in Jesus’ Kingdom empowers us to act with His authority. Here is the Scripture that tells us we do live in The Kingdom of Jesus when we choose Jesus as our King of Kings!

Colossians 1:13 (AMPC)

[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself

out of the control and the dominion of darkness

and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love

We know where our true home is, now we just need to find out what our job is in this new home. Jesus, the King, will let us know; the the task is to be obedient to what He tells us to do. That leads us to a life of total fulfillment, not the cheap imitation satan wants us to believe in~ feeding our fleshly appetites will not bring lasting happiness. God’s ways of life will.

                                        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.
