Cast Up A Highway



Shepherd Care

Posted on September 4, 2016 at 11:55 AM

You are the Almighty One! Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Thank You for always being available to help me. More, You are in waiting for me to come to You and ask for help. You are eager to bring me to where You want me to be. I bow before You and say, “I too am eager to be where You want me to be.”

Come Lord Jesus! Guide me and my thoughts, my will and my spirit to the path that leads through the jungles and its traps and dangers. Be on my ship in any stormy sea that threatens my emotions. Only You can dry my tears and bring peace. You are my Savior in every way and I need You by my side; then in peace I will walk and not doubt. You created me and all Your children for greatness, so I humbly bow to Your will.

Father You are so huge some cannot conceive of Your personal love for each of us. Yet I know without a doubt that You love me and all Your children. You accept us where we are right now and are eager to be our Comforter, Guide, our Counselor and Protector. Holy Spirit as You indwell us, You are ever present to be our constant companion.

“Constant”, I like that word. It's one description of God's attributes.

In math it’s a constant or parameter that does not change its value whatever the value of the variables

Otherwise it’s defined as unchangeably faithful and dependable; remaining the same or occurring continuously over a period of time

Holy Spirit is always with us loving and caring for us tenderly. He does not change. He always wants what is best for us. Sometimes we may not agree immediately that something is best, but knowing of His powerful love for us, we bow down to His wisdom and trust Him completely,

These end times are not going to get easier, but when we are locked into our Lord, He will bring us through them. How do we get ‘locked in’? It is like any relationship, we must spend time together. My book, Cast Up A Highway, teaches ways to build a close relationship with God. My friends, in these end times we will all need a close tie with our Lord. This connection is what will be the knowledge, the advice, the edge in every situation to get us where we need to be; through it we will not just survive, for it causes us to grow stronger and more successful in our life mission.

These will be scary times and exciting times. Cast fear aside and grow in Christ, and you will find the excitement, the thrill and delight of following God’s direction through all the confusing roadblocks and weed filled paths of our journey. He’ll be there to walk with you and me as our Shepherd.

By the way I heard a good description of the difference between a shepherd and a hireling. When danger comes, the shepherd will hurl himself between the sheep and the danger. But when danger comes, the hireling will turn tail and run away. The true Shepherd is Jesus. Hirelings of the world cannot be trusted.

Dear friends, do not procrastinate in accepting Jesus' gift of salvation, for we never know which day will be our last on earth, and we do know that we want to move on to Jesus Kingdom, not hellish torment. Also, our journey here on earth can be easier and joy filled as well, when we walk with Holy Spirit guidance.

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.
