Cast Up A Highway



World Changers

Posted on June 17, 2017 at 6:20 AM

Once upon a time a little boy was walking down a small town street when a stranger asked him for directions. The little child had trouble directing the man, so he said he would take him there. Too small for discernment, the child got in the car with the man and off they went. Now this story could have many endings.

a. the boy was never seen again.

b. The boy was kidnapped and later found alive or . . .

c. The stranger thanked the boy for directions and let him out at the destination.

Which ending would you write? The mind of today would probably choose a. or b. It is the atmosphere of our present culture; the third ending is what happens in Jesus’ Kingdom~ the one we want to bring to our world, even though today we are much closer to the poisons of the Sodom and Gomorrah towns. Jesus Kingdom has a culture of true love for one another. What do you think it would take for us to get there?

Who can bring change to our world? The only answer is God. But He works through us, you and I. What can one person do?

Last night I saw a short production on Martin Luther King Jr. He changed our world. One man from a persecuted race who believed strong enough in freedom and righteousness went out and made a difference. He was not a perfect man, but God used him in a mighty way.

Abraham Lincoln again was just one man who failed many times, but God used him to free a people. There are many such individuals that you could name, perhaps not so famous, but used of God for divine purposes. Do you know of John G. Lake? Read about his life; he trusted much and was a greatly anointed man of God.

So what about you and I? Do you want to be used of God to bring Jesus’ Kingdom to the earth? Sometimes it’s just a one person at a time journey. Affect one life, and they affect one or two, and they each bring some into the Kingdom, and soon your one success has brought thousands to know the Lord planting gardens of love and grace into our culture.

The enemy is working hard to destroy Jesus’ Kingdom. Families are his biggest target! If he can sew division and offense into a marriage, he can rip families apart. Pray for families, especially if you know one that satan is trying to destroy. My friends, we can make a difference. Carry God’s love with you wherever you journey and share His Word abundantly. We are able!

Habakkuk 3:19 AMPC

The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!

Living in the Kingdom directs our steps on His path, and the Holy Spirit is our guide. Tranquility settles within as we rest in Jesus. Fear not! God works in/with us. With Him we can be world changers one step at a time.

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.
