Cast Up A Highway



Universe Shout Out

Posted on December 17, 2014 at 7:15 AM

Meditating on the wonders of the universe, and it feels like floating around in a sea of astronomical beauty. Darkness punctuated by light and colorful designs everywhere. Peace reigns.

Over there circles the planet Earth. Of all the planets, God gave us the best of His creation! Variety reigns from every aspect! Our ever changing skies can give life to imaginations with white shapes of clouds drifting in soft periwinkle blue, or they can be charged with ( Picture from Hubble Telescope) charcoal black clouds churning angrily.

Trees, trees, and more trees! All are suited to the climate of their origin. Greens of every hue, changing with the seasons showing off new regalia in party pinks and white, vibrant red, orange and yellows. Vistas of bright celebration deck the hills and valleys. In some areas gardens of flowers scent the atmosphere adding their own colorful spotlights of grace.

And then He added animals! Such amazing varieties from the little hummingbird to the gigantic elephants, and all have their own personalities!

Wild critters all have specific personalities and colorations from the bright zebra stripes, spotted long necked giraffes, and dull grey of the bulky bad tempered rhino. Certainly there are too many to mention, but their grandness comes partly from their variety and how they all fit into God’s grand scheme.

What also captivates me is seeing critters designed for human companionship as well. They delight me as I watch how our loving Creator purposed them in their different species, size, coloring, and personalities to fit with human needs and desires.

Dogs and cats, birds, and horses many have personalities that are made to serve diverse needs of humankind. That love pouring out of big brown eyes of the golden doodle just wanting to give and get loving approval. . .

Going down into the micro area of life more amazing truths are discovered, as we watch the workings of a cell and all the life that exists and lives in that tiny universe. All life depends on the health of that cell and its workings. Our trillions of cells determine our body life. God put it all together from the tiniest to the grandest so that our lives can be His blessing. He even gave us an owners guide, the Bible, to learn how to have a wonderful life. Our God put it all in order:

Hebrews 1:1-2 AMP

In many separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways

God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets,

[But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things,

Thus came Jesus, God’s own Son;

and God appointed Him Heir and lawful owner of ALL things!

also by and through Whom He created the worlds Jesus was part of the creation of the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time the wonders of space and the ages of time. . .

[He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order].


We live in a world of order because God created it that way.

How great is our God!! Can you rejoice in His grandness? Celebrate the birth of His Son! Meditate on what that birth meant for all mankind! May Christmas bring you much joy!!

                                        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.
