Cast Up A Highway



Stand in the Gap!

Explosive power is sometimes contained in small packages like a hand grenade, and at other times in larger containers like a bomb. These two examples are usually found in wartime. However, “peace time” also is laden with powerful weapons called “words”. In the last post I spoke of how they can be used for good or for evil. They contain the capacity to destroy people or to build people up. Self talk can do the same~ how we speak to our selves, the thoughts we allow go into our subconscious do guide our actions to success or failure, to positive acts or negative ones. Words are blasts of energy that create and we choose how to use them.

However, I’m not really writing about self, more about “words of power”. As God created human beings, we have been given the authority to use words to speak to the God the Universe. His Son Jesus became human and by His shed blood won back for us the right to have God given authority on the earth. We can speak with our God asking for divine intervention or help in our situations. Today is NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER. Our country has a Christian heritage from its conception. The devil is working hard to destroy it. But the power of prayer is capable of restoring God to our nation. My friends, use words of prayer power to claim the authority we have over the enemy and win back our country to its divine origins, to the Word of God, and to God Himself.

Feeling weak and helpless to do anything about the downgrading of our country? Anguished about the continual growth of sexual immorality and the lies being taught to our children in school? Angry that our government has put us on a downhill track in an out of control train trying to change our culture and the Constitution that has kept us in victory for so long? What is one thing everyone can do to harness this power to stop it? PRAYER.

PRAYER IS NUCLEAR IN POWER. Gather together and pray out Scriptures such as:

2 Chronicles 7:14 (AMP)

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves,

pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face

and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven,

forgive their sin, and heal their land.

God does hear our prayers and He does answer them. Praying Scripture, God’s promises, does contain nuclear powered energy. IF WE FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS: humble ourselves, crave His face, and turn from wickedness, (that is, repent), He will hear and forgive our sin, and heal our land. My friends, it is the only thing powerful enough to help us at this point. Stand in the gap for our nation!

Ezekiel 22:30

And I sought a man among them who should build up the wall

and stand in the gap before Me for the land,

that I should not destroy it,

but I found none.

Will God find you? Will you stand in the gap for our land? Pray!

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.
