Cast Up A Highway



Culture of Death

Posted on November 18, 2016 at 8:30 AM

My heart is breaking! Just been told that a young friend of my nephew committed suicide. His note said he couldn’t live up to all the expectations put on him. He evidently didn’t know the Lord, or he would have a place to take his frustrations. Our society and it’s attack on Christianity has kept these youngsters from having a resource of strength that should be available to them. This death takes a toll not only on his family, but also on all those close who care about him and are now suffering too!

Our society has been breeding a culture of death. Abortion gives no value to innocent babies except financial profit to sell body parts of aborted babies. Now laws are being passed to make suicide legal if someone might have to suffer pain. God's timing on all things is the best, and that includes dying. We do not know Almighty God's plans and thoughts, but they are always higher than ours.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (AMP)

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,

Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.


“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

So are My ways higher than your ways

And My thoughts higher than your thoughts.

I heard of a man in Oregon where an insurance company would not pay for a his cancer treatment, but would pay for his death by assisted suicide. Where are our values?

It's time, my friends, for everyone of us to step up and step out in telling people about Christ and His love for them; this is especially needed by our young people.

Remember when you were preteen and teenagers? Besides all the physical and hormonal changes, they are also trying to begin their higher education challenges. Thus not just studies, but all the other challenges like bullying, or making new friends and trying to be accepted, fitting in, parental approval, independence. God knows how to help them, but we need to introduce them to Jesus, who loves them and will never let them down. It’s time, and it’s a responsibility we all share!

With the attitude change in our new government, perhaps we now have a more open chance to help these kids and teach them about spiritual truths. Some have absolutely no concept that they have a spiritual side at all, or that it matters and is a good thing. Dear ones who have young children, please be there for your kids and teach them Christian truths and Christian principles! Don’t depend on the school because until now the schools were negating Jesus and spiritual concepts. Hopefully that will change, but it will take time. Meanwhile it’s up to parents and mentors, grandparents, and other believing members of the family to keep close to these precious children and see the truth is sown into their spirits.

God has a plan for their lives; they can get through this time!

Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Take them by the spiritual hand and gently guide them to the beautiful Christ who gave up His life for us, who suffered terribly so we could be free. Don’t let this gift be wasted by denying the evil machinations of the devil who captures our children by lies and deceptions. Give kids the weapons they need to get through this troubled time in their lives.

And pray for them daily! Lift them up and put supernatural protection around them, angels to watch over them and lead them on the true path. Jesus is the light in the darkness and their ever present help in storms. He is always close by. Teach the children how to pray, how to have a personal relationship with God. Let's save our children!

                                        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.
