Cast Up A Highway



A Rough Patch?

Posted on June 16, 2017 at 7:30 AM

So you are going through a really rough time right now? The devil is leading you by the nose through its special brand of hell. You don’t know what to do. You’ve called out to God but nothing seems to have changed. Depressive thoughts darken the horizon like threatening storm clouds.

There is an answer. It comes with understanding the spirit world surrounding us all; unseen, it rules our lives. There is good and there is evil. They are not entities in themselves, but they come from 2 sources. God is good and only good flows from Him. The devil, satan, is His enemy and hates God and all of us whom God loves; satan is the source of all evil.

Understanding this leads us to answers. The devil is very clever at deception and lies; he is attacking us constantly from all angles.


God loves us and wants to show Himself strong for us, but we must allow Him access. The Bible gives us God’s instructions for attaining all the potential He put in us at birth. It tells us how to establish a relationship with Him. [For more information on this, see the book Cast Up A Highway.] Having a strong connection with our God puts us and keep us on the right road!

The critical key here is where do you keep your focus? As you are traveling down this rough patch, is your focus on the bumps and potholes. . .

or is your focus on God who promises to be with us always? He is the one who will keep us not just riding in the light of truth, but bring us onto a better path where we’ll find ourself stronger and the road smoother.

Sounds like a simple answer to a painful experience. Nonetheless, it is true. The enemy wants you to believe all the evil stuff happening will go on forever and you cannot change it. But Jesus said, come to Me. . .

Matthew 11:28 [AMP]

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest.

[I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]

There is a lot of darkness in the world these days from death, poverty, conflict, murders, diseases. My friends, you can travel through the fiercest storms with joy in your heart, but you have to trust God to bring you through it. (In the book above I briefly talk about what God did in my journey through cancer.)

Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMPC)

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.

In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.

                                        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.
