Cast Up A Highway




Depth 3 Treasure Chest Discovered

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 7:35 AM

Rest time over; the journey to find the treasure is renewed. Continuing to swim has become more difficult, for my body is weary from its struggles. “Jesus, I am really getting tired.” He responds, “So you want to stop?” Again I realized this was a defining moment. Do I have the determination to continue? Is my will committed enough to pursue this journey through exhaustion to the end? Am I passionate enough about finding the heart of God to push through the fatigue?



Closing my eyes I looked into my own heart, for we cannot know the heart of God if we do not know our own heart. There I found a desperate desire to know my Lord and my God at a deeper level, to push our relationship to a farther depth. “Jesus, let’s continue” I respond.



Then the thrill hits as in the distance I see a treasure box! Yes, just like a pirate’s treasure box holding lots of golden coins. Wow! Extra energy empowers my body to move more swiftly through the water until. . .









I see large shadows swimming around it. Ok. I never even considered sharks and other dangers lurking in the darkness at this level. Jesus, what will we do now? I hear no response, though I know He is near. Looking around, I see His eyes peering at me, but no words; it’s up to me.




Pondering what I know to be true, I search my memory for an answer. There is the treasure chest which holds answers my heart deeply desires. But the bodyguards of the chest are formidable, and wisdom is required here. Check the Word. . .


Psalm 19:11-14 (MSG)

There’s more: God’s Word warns us of danger

and directs us to hidden treasure.

Otherwise how will we find our way?

Or know when we play the fool?

Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!


Psalm 55:16-19 (MSG)

I call to God;

God will help me.

At dusk, dawn, and noon I sigh

deep sighs—he hears, he rescues.

My life is well and whole, secure

in the middle of danger

Even while thousands

are lined up against me.

God hears it all, and from his judge’s bench

puts them in their place.

But, set in their ways, they won’t change;

they pay him no mind.

It's ok. My God watches over me and He is in control.



Psalm 55:16 (AMP)

16 As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord will save me.


Jesus, Your Word says if I call upon my God, He will save me. It says my life is secure in the middle of danger. I have the authority to command the truth of the Word to take place against my enemy. I am secure in His hands, in Your hands Jesus, the great Lion of Judah!


Let us go and secure the treasure. With firm conviction I take the lead to the chest, and reaching it I give praise to my God for His wonderful goodness. The dark shapes keep their distance. I am protected.


When was the last time you called upon the faithfulness of our God? Has He helped you through a dangerous time? Did you trust in Him and His Word?

                                        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.
