Cast Up A Highway



Enjoying His Presence

Posted on December 11, 2015 at 7:15 AM

Jesus went to prayer daily spending time with His Father. They were so close that the worst part of Jesus’ crucifixion was when the Father had to separate Himself from His Son, because the sin of the world had come upon Jesus. What an agony of shock for Jesus who shouted out,My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me?”

Matthew 27:45-47 (AMP)

Now from the sixth hour (noon) there was darkness over all the land

until the ninth hour (3:00 p.m.).

46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud [agonized] voice,

“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is,

“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

Meditating on this, I see my relationship with my God. Do I have that intimacy? There are times when I do not “feel” God’s closeness. Yet I have His assurance that He is with me:

Hebrews 13:5

“I will never [under any circumstances] desert you

[nor give you up nor leave you without support,

nor will I in any degree leave you helpless],

nor will I forsake or let you down

or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”

He will never abandon me! Since it is written in His Word I know that it is true! So if I’m tempted to believe He left me, or again I don't ‘feel’ Him, I remember I do not live by my feelings, but by the Word of God! So I go to Him and He is indeed there; I can always count on Him!

I submit myself (never easy to submit) to my God and His ways, and He guides me. My rebellious human nature is not totally conquered yet, but He is helping me with it. You know, I love it that He is not the monarch sitting on His throne with a fly swatter just waiting for me to make a mistake so He can swat me down! Rather He is a full loving Father watching over me with kindness and affection, helping me get up when I fall down, and easily forgiving me when I repent of my sinful ways. His gentle kindness brings a loving smile to my face. I do love Him!

My friends, I ask you to spend some time each day in the Lord’s presence talking to Him or reading His Word with Holy Spirit understanding. Meditate on the stillness~ like the stillness of the holy night of Jesus’ birth, the late night quiet in that stable as His mother waited for the fruit of her labor pains, her precious baby's first cry.

I can imagine tears of joy flowing from her eyes as she holds her precious Son close.

The stillness may not last, for the glad voices of angel’s singing a message to the world breaks the silence, for heaven itself rejoices as the Christ begins His part in the salvation of the world.

Dear Ones, come join in the celebration of Jesus or of your own born again experience!  Praise Almighty God who always brings us the victory! May joy fill your day!

                                        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.
