Cast Up A Highway



Grace and Forgiveness

Posted on April 7, 2017 at 7:05 AM

Easter and Good Friday are fast approaching. It is the time when our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered excruciating pain of a cruel whip tearing His flesh apart, of being stripped and unjustly vilified, of being dragged from place to place, a crown of thorns painfully pushed into His skull. Our Jesus was betrayed by one of His own apostles for thirty pieces of silver. As I meditate on what happened to Him, I am picturing also the babies who are undergoing excruciating pain as they are murdered in the womb. They too are sold for blood money at Planned non-Parenthood.

Why is it still continuing? Are we so shallow that we convince ourselves to believe the lies of the enemy rather than the truth? God created a miracle, a new life, and we are so jaded as to not just deny it, but to murder it? We are so selfish to not want the inconvenience of a child, so we kill it?

My heart breaks for the women who have had abortions in the past and are suffering for it now. They believed the lies of the enemy. Know, my friends, that Jesus died for you; He has forgiven you, now you must forgive yourself. Accept Jesus gift of redemption, and ask Him to be Lord of your life now, if you have not done it before. His grace will be with you to help put your life on track for fulfilling the potential God placed in you at birth.

Ephesians 1:7 AMP

In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace

Easter is the time of new birth. The whole earth rejoices! Flowers are peeking their heads up through the ground. Baby bunnies and other new born creatures are appearing. It is also the new birth for our souls and spirits. Jesus sacrifice brought you and I the opportunity to accept His redemptive grace and become new people.

2 Corinthians 5:16-18 (NKJV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,

When we embrace Jesus and His Lordship over our lives, we do indeed become new creations. This is a great time my friends to choose a new life of grace and love. God loves us so much, He sent His Son to endure much so we could gain eternal life. That begins the second we turn to Him and embrace His heart's love for us. It is a wonderful life indeed! Come, my friends, choose love now.

                                        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.
