BE A CAVER

Posted on August 19, 2019 at 3:40 AM



“Spelunkers” are those who choose to go down into the earth exploring caves. Many are untrained and for them it can be a hazardous sport. “Cavers” are those who have been trained in cave exploration, its dangers, its required skills, its necessary tools, etc. One facetious banner says “Cavers rescue spelunkers.”

 

So let’s look at the sport from a different perspective. One chooses to enter darkness, for once beyond the entrance, no light penetrates. Walking carefully, observing the tapering passages, the surprising waterways, crawling through narrow holes~ the excitement for some is in the dangers and challenges.

 

Life can be like a murky trip in a strange cave, because In life we find places of spiritual darkness. Temptations can look exciting, but the shadowy adventure into challenges bathed in gloom can hide deadly falls. In caves flashlights can help provide light. What is our light in spiritual places where no light exists? Pridefull thinking~we know the way, or just being unsure of our way, we can stumble into lies and destruction~stalagtites hanging down or stalamites rising up from the ground can be painful stumbling blocks.




In our spiritual cave we face similar challenges from the unlighted interior; without a light source our travels can become hazardous indeed.

For us illumination must be from our God, He is the indwelling Lord of all! Christ in us provides the light. I recall a previous blog where Jesus and I were on a ledge overlooking a garden as a dark shadow began crawling over it. Jesus asked me if I were willing to go down into the darkness for Him? It placed a heavy fear in my middle. I asked, “Will You go with me?” He smiled and said," I am always with you". Realizing this truth, I agreed to go. The advancing shadow was full of evil and wickedness, as well as vicious foes. But remember what the Word says, 


1 John 4:4“New King James Version

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

 

  Jesus dwells in me with all His power. Trusting Him is the victors march. i will go anywhere He commands. Recalling Who is the Light in me I have no fear! See what Jesus says,



                                                                   

 


John 9:4-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

4 While I am with you, it is daytime and we must do the works of God who sent me while the light shines. For there is coming a dark night when no one will be able to work.[a] 5 As long as I am with you my life is the light that pierces the world’s darkness.”


Just check the news programs and you will notice the darkness like an inky smoke covering the globe. One country is fighting another the world over. The hatred of Satan is infusing itself into many world governments. Laws are being put in place some instilling hatred, or coming against God’s laws; LGTB is insinuating its agenda every where now. Baby murder is world spread. Generations are being annihilated for selfish and greedy reasons. Yes the evil shadow is spreading.

 

Each of us with Jesus (when we have chosen Him as the King of our lives, thus now indwelling us,) are a light in the world. God has a plan for us, a path He set for us to follow, and He is the light upon our path

                                                              


Psalm 18:11 New King James Version

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.


Psalm 18:28 The Passion Translation


God, all at once you turned on a floodlight for me! You are the revelation-light in my darkness, and in your brightness I can see the path ahead.



                                                                              



When we go into the darkness to carry Jesus message, it is crucial that we be “cavers” who are secure in the knowledge of whose we are, and that we carry the God of the Universe within as our source and power. My friends, if you are not convinced that Jesus is God and helps us in our life journey, then seek Him! Get to know Him. Ask Him to be Lord of your life. He will gladly lead you on the path out of the darkness and into the light of your destiny. Any battle can be won when we have Jesus fighting with us! We can carry His light into any cave's darkness to discover truth.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

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.
