Cast Up A Highway



I Won't Be Pulled Down

Posted on June 28, 2017 at 6:55 AM

Last night: Toss and turn. Scratch the itch. Bend the knees. Turn over. That was the physical body. But the mind was the biggest deterrent to sleep; felt like a game of “keep away” with the ball being tossed here and then there, and soon as I thought I caught it, away the thought would fly. You know too, the night is when the devil loves to bring negative thoughts to mind. Last night he was true to form. It got to the point where I threw myself down weeping before God’s throne, feeling beaten, alone and helpless.

Ephesians 6:12

For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

Then I asked my Holy Spirit for help. He is so faithful. He brought me one thought, a Scripture verse: “Why so downcast, O my soul?” So I looked it up this morning:

Psalm 42:5-8 (NIV)

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.

6 My soul is downcast within me;

therefore I will remember you

from the land of the Jordan,

the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.

7 Deep calls to deep

in the roar of your waterfalls;

all your waves and breakers

have swept over me.

8 By day the Lord directs his love,

at night his song is with me—

a prayer to the God of my life.

That psalm grabbed my mind to truth~ why am I downcast? Holy Spirit showed me that I had put God in 3 little boxes. Ha! Don’t we do that? Don’t we sometimes put God in a little box? Some people think that God should live by their ideas and ideals, and if He doesn’t then 'I won’t believe. . . .'

Well I wasn’t that far out of line, but I had boxed up God as too small to handle my problems. No wonder I felt alone and helpless. If I only depend on me, that’s weak! So I went and opened the 1st box~ Holy Spirit. Soon as it was open, “Whoosh” out flew Holy Spirit filling the room and the earth and the universe, and finally me. Yes I felt His love filling me up settling a little satisfied smile on my face. I was back!

Then I moved over to box #2, and as I got the top barely beginning to open, up sprang King Jesus, standing tall as a mountain. He began bending over and picking up little somethings and tossing them to His angels. Then I saw they were small demons, Jesus would pick them up and the angels would cart them away. This was over individuals, families, churches, other groups, and finally over governments. (These government demons were bigger and darker.) What I noticed was that when the little devils were cleared out, Jesus light filled the spaces. One of my “toss and turn thoughts” was there and as Jesus emptied the demons, His light filled that home. Peace.

The third box just disappeared; it was simply no longer there; but Father God was everywhere working all over the world. He was activating His plan in each individual and each country. My God is so huge, so mighty, and I have Him indwelling me. I am not small and alone! I have Him with me all the time! His indwelling Presence, power and protection is always with me. Nothing is impossible for God, and that is true with me too, for my God lives in me. 

Ephesians 3:16

May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

Friends, if you have put God in a little box, ask Holy Spirit to help you open it up and release the mighty power that is yours, because God is for you, not against you. His love is a strength that stands with and empowers you always. Do not fear, He has given you a spirit of power, might and love. Feel His love for you, and thank Him for His awesome blessings! And get Him out of that box!!

I as well as my guys have already been reading through the great points located on the blog then instantly I had an awful feeling I never expressed respect to you for them. My young boys became absolutely glad to learn all of them and have in actuality been loving them. I appreciate you for being considerably kind and then for selecting some smart resources most people are really wanting to learn about. My very own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

                                        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.
