Cast Up A Highway



First Man and God's Plan

Posted on March 3, 2017 at 6:20 AM

What a wonderful God we have! 'He created us to know Him and to love Him and to serve Him on this earth so we can be happy with Him in heaven'. This is right out of the Baltimore catechism from long long ago. I grew up learning it. It is truth simplified.

When God created first man, He knew He must give men free will to choose. He also knew that free will could cause man to sin. Indeed, first man betrayed God, and chose to listen to satan who knew that sin would travel down infecting man with a sin nature and spoiling God's intention of having us in heaven with Him.

So God countered that move by making a plan for His creation: Jesus would come and pay the price for our sin. You see, because it was a human man sinning against a Deity, it was a legal requirement: in order for us to be freed from our sin nature, we would have to be reconciled by a God/man.

God's plan from the beginning was to save us. He knew with our free will and sin nature we would make wrong choices, and no sin can exist near God’s perfect goodness. It is like bringing paper too close to a fire; the paper would be destroyed. God prepared in advance a way for all men to be saved. His plan was Jesus who would clean the slate for us.

Now our place in the plan entails carrying the Gospel message to everyone we know. We are God’s hands and feet and mouth. Thankfully, we have Holy Spirit indwelling us to guide and mentor us. Have You invited Holy Spirit to come and live in your heart? If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, invite the Holy Spirit to come and live in you. He loves us too.

Holy Spirit is God in us. With His indwelling presence, we have our Lord to greet each morning as we climb out of bed. We can dedicate the day to Him right away. Ask for His anointing to speak to someone or some people today about Jesus' love. He will bring people along Your path and give you the words to say. It’s like John 15 teaches~ every soul we reach for Jesus is a fruit, joy to God, to the redeemed and to us.

John 15:16-17

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.

17 This is my command: Love each other.

God is Three-in-One = Father Son and Holy Spirit, 3 persons in one God. We are made in His image~ not exact replica, but Spirit, soul, and body. There is so much joy in getting to know our God! I invite you, my friends, to take on the journey of building an intimate relationship with our Lord God. The book Cast Up A Highway can help begin or further your journey to construct a highway from your heart to God's heart.

                                        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.
