Cast Up A Highway




Posted on October 17, 2018 at 5:10 AM

After gaining victory in the cancer battle, and resting for a space, it was time for the Lord's next assignment: a book. He sent a mind-capturing Scripture. Isaiah 62:10 began appearing everywhere, but what can you do with a Scripture like that: “Cast up a highway in the desert for my people”? But I was obedient  and phoned an engineer asking , “How do you build up a highway?”. Once the engineer relayed the the information, Scriptures began downloading into my mind filling in the basic design of a God-highway. 


It was establishing a structure of faith to shape a love life. It became a foundational mind picture to check anytime there was a feeling of drifting away, of a break in the connection. The book, Cast Up A Highway, leads one in logical steps to know God and to construct a love relationship with Him, then grow that bond, and maintain it. 


The book being simple to read and basic in teaching creates a mind picture our youth can put in their suitcase as they go off to college. It's a staple when their faith comes under attack. Young ones can grasp the simple truths in the basics of faith and then be taught a life pattern for retaining it. The book is perfect for new believers who crave a stronger and deeper bond with their God.

Now understand I knew and know the power of this little book, yet the Lord did not let it grow exponentially as I expected. Rather, God set me on a shelf and told me, ‘now you grow’ in preparation for the next trip on the train. So there I sat as a potted plant on a shelf, not as my vision ~ of the mighty cedar trees of Lebanon deeply rooted on the river of life giving love and healing to all those who came by. :)   Pride has a way of being exposed so it can be excised, and God is good at that. 


So, I had to speak to my God, “Ok God, my plans are not always Your plans. I bow down to You and accept Your plan for my life. Not just “accept” with the resentment of no choice, but “accept” with gratitude and trust knowing You love me and always have the very best for me.” It's a good place we all can come to when our plans or expectations don't happen as we hoped they would.

Lesson received in heart: Trust in God always! He loves us exceedingly, cares for us gently, and building one God-step upon another, leads us always to victory in our life battles!

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.
