Cast Up A Highway



A Cog In Time

Posted on December 28, 2016 at 6:45 AM

Once again I am reminded: Life's not all about me. I am but a cog in His wheel of salvation. Lord, show me how to do my part well. Let me be completely oiled with Your anointing! Guide me on the path that is Your will; I want to always follow Your directives. Sensitize my ears, Father, that I hear Your voice; put Your words in my mouth and in my hand that writes. Reach out to those who need You so desperately through my tongue and blog.




Where has God so delicately placed your cog? Are you allowing the moving of the tiny machine to bring salvation to others through you?


Cog: a wheel or bar with a series of projections on its edge that transfers motion by engaging with projections on another wheel or bar.


So as a cog, I don't move myself, You move me, Lord, through Your motion on the other wheel or bar. I'm a carrier of Your Word and love. And is there something deeper beneath the surface? You call me to move sometimes out of sync with the world. . . Whatever You desire Lord, I am willing.





The big picture: Your plan of salvation reaches out to many through the ages. Time measurer~ a watch has tiny cogs in it that move ever round and round turning the hands counting. . . seconds, minutes, hours, days, years, and millennium.









Galatians 4:4-5 AMP

But when [in God’s plan] the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman,

born under the [regulations of the] Law, so that He might redeem and liberate those who were under the Law,

that we [who believe] might be adopted as sons [as God’s children with all rights as fully grown members of a family].

We are adopted into God's family when we accept Jesus gift of salvation and choose Him as our Lord and Savior. We receive the DNA of our Father God with all the family rights, privileges, promises and inheritances.


So as a cog in Your family plan, Lord, move me along the timeline completing every task to bring me to where I am supposed to be. Yes, I’m a cog in a wheel of time that operates beyond human knowledge and understanding. As each click turns I rest in peace, for it is the interaction with my God that propels me. I cannot escape from my place. The watchmaker has assigned me here, in this time and place. I trust Him and it’s here where I choose to stay today and through the New Year.




I rest in You my God allowing You to keep me cleansed and turning with precision. I’m pleased to be a shining cog in Your wheel of salvation.


Are you a cog moved by God? His plan for our lives is always best! Spend time each day with Him, and your New Year will be the best ever! Trust in Him.

My husband and i have been excited Emmanuel could conclude his inquiry via the ideas he received when using the web page. It's not at all simplistic to just possibly be making a gift of facts which most people could have been making money from. Therefore we consider we've got the blog owner to appreciate for that. The most important explanations you've made, the straightforward web site navigation, the friendships you will aid to instill - it is most fantastic, and it's really leading our son in addition to our family understand that topic is entertaining, which is really pressing. Many thanks for the whole thing!

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.
