Cast Up A Highway



Tasting His Magnificence

Posted on May 18, 2016 at 7:45 AM

Walking through the forest after a spring snow had dressed the scene, i so enjoy the sounds permeating the atmosphere. . . the silence punctuated by the crunch of my boots on the crusty snow, the bird songs of joy, a cracking of a branch moving in the breeze. As my lungs inhale clean pure air, my heart drinks in the refreshing spirit of God’s beauty. The magnificence of His marvelous creation for us lifts my soul in words of thanksgiving. You are so good Lord, my God! You created this earth for us to enjoy. Do you get out and enjoy the glorious presents our Creator designed for our enjoyment?

As the trail comes to a clearing my eyes behold God's loving hand in all the wonders of this world. In the meadow walks a regal stag, head alert sniffing the air. Beyond him, standing in majesty, a mountain high and lifted up, covered with a dressing of pristine white snow reflects the rising sun’s glory, a small sample of the Son’s dazzling splendor. It fills my soul as I stand in awe. You, fill my soul Lord. This creation of Yours so inspires my being, that I can’t move; it’s as though Your heavenly light shines upon me, pinning me breathless to the spot.

Little did I know, Lord, this morning would become an intertwining of my heart with Yours. As the sun moved on, the mountain settled down into it’s natural earthly beauty, my mind quieted into a place of rest and peace.

Thank You, Lord for this extraordinary time with You. Your presence comes to me at different times and is always a precious experience where my soul relaxes in quiet joy. How special was this morning, Lord! Thank You!

I am so thankful for this time with my God. I sorely needed it as life has recently been full of the grief of losing long time friends.

I want to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from such a crisis. Because of checking throughout the world-wide-web and getting basics which are not beneficial, I figured my life was done. Being alive devoid of the answers to the difficulties you have sorted out through this site is a critical case, and ones that could have badly damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your blog post. Your own personal understanding and kindness in handling every aspect was invaluable. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't discovered such a point like this. I can at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for this professional and result oriented help.

                                        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.
