Cast Up A Highway



Face to Face With God

Posted on February 17, 2016 at 1:30 AM

Was reading GPAN the other day and one thought had pastel colors around it; that is, it registered in my spirit:




We don’t have a long distance relationship

We are in a face to face experience with You – God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and the earth

The one Who is Love, the One Who gave love

The One who is an eternal God, a covenant keeping God






What a great concept! We truly are in a face to face relationship with our Almighty God! Remember how Moses was “a friend “ of God? That is our relationship only with us it is deeper. We can have Holy Spirit, Creator of the Universe indwelling us. We can have Him as our mentor, our guide, as lover of our soul! The way is through Jesus Who chose to come to earth to teach us about God, and to give up His life for us. Man’s sin nature could never get us into heaven, because God and sin can never exist close together~ it would be like fire and paper. Bring paper too close to fire and paper is destroyed.







Jesus died as a sacrifice for mankind. In His dying as man and Son of God, He was able to pay off our sin debt. When we personally accept His great love gift to us, we actually have a transformation; our sin nature is washed out of us and we receive a God nature of righteousness. We may still make mistakes, but when we see them and repent, they disappear. So we are enabled to grow into the person God created us to be, and that includes building a connection to God that continually develops into an ever stronger bond.




Christ in us~ how magnificent a life we can have! Our love and obedience to Him brings us into His Kingdom, where we are His representatives, His ambassadors on earth. Living life with His grace and power becomes a fulfillment we can find no place else. My friends, do not underestimate the wonder and joy of this life. His book, the Bible, tells us the history of God’s love for us and demonstrates so much more. I recommend that you begin to read it regularly and prayerfully if you don’t already. The Book of John in the New Testament is a great place to begin to find a connection.


Finally, know that in this world where the enemy is working to stir confusion up like a witches cauldron, we can have peace in our souls.



John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]


Jesus also promises us in John 17 that we can have His joy. (In my book Cast Up A Highway there is an event I share from my cancer journey where Jesus joy filled me and no fear could even get close).



The Bible carries many promises to those who choose to accept Jesus and live by His ways. It's a good choice!

                                        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.
