Cast Up A Highway



Cast Out Anxiety

Posted on October 21, 2016 at 6:30 AM

A single phone call can disrupt our life. The enemy will pounce on anything it can use to attack us. Well I went to the doctor for a yearly checkup; they did one of those procedures where they try to turn a cup into a saucer~ you ladies know the one. It is a way of showing early signs of possible cancer. Well the phone call I got asked me to come back in, as there was something the doc wanted to look closer at.

That's enough to cause anxiety in some. However, having gone through a cancer journey once before, it did not concern me. Why? Because God had made Himself marvelously present throughout my walk. (Told in my book Cast Up A Highway.) And because anytime a negative thought would try and raise its ugly head, I would remember that my loving mighty God is my rear guard and nothing can sneak up behind me. See Isaiah 52:

Isaiah 52:12 (AMP)

For you will not go out in a hurry [as when you left Egypt],

Nor will you go in flight [fleeing, as you did from the Egyptians];

For the Lord will go before you,

And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Oh God of Israel You are King of Kings, Lord of Lords! You are my God, and I love YOU. Thank You for loving me so well! You go before us, leading the way and preparing our path, and nothing can sneak up behind us, because You are also our rear guard! Thank You, mighty God! We move forward to spread Your Word and bring truth to the world. Hallelujah!

God's Word brings us close to Him, because it is so personal. The Bible is the Living Word of God. It does not sit as some dry history book written eons ago and reporting happenings back then. Rather it is alive and speaks God's thoughts through His Words to us. Today His Word is meant to be a personal guide throughout our life. God will use it to talk intimately with us just when we need it the most; we trust in Him as our Lord, our Savior, our indwelling Holy Spirit who is our:

John 14:26 (AMP)

But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.

God Himself will indwell us and help us through every phase of life. If we open ourselves up to Him, trust in Him, we shall live in glorious freedom. Our very nature is altered after we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, and our new cleansed self can invite Holy Spirit, God Himself, to enter in and make His home within us. Life with God is so much better than fighting the evil enemy's nature that we had before Jesus.

If you have not already asked Jesus to come into your heart and be your Savior, now is the time! Admit and be sorry for your sins, and ask Jesus to enter into your heart and reign over your life forever. He will do it.

                                        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.
