Cast Up A Highway



God's Answer to Hard Times

Posted on June 15, 2016 at 6:40 AM

It is our Almighty God!

I could see it reflected in the mirror~ the golden sky. Grabbing my camera I rushed out to the street so I would not miss anything. Clouds that were golden began sliding into rich orange-red. Click. click. I began collecting another illustration of the deep love of our God. Do you also stop sometimes and think on the beauty God created here for us to enjoy? He did it because He loves us so much, He wanted us to inhabit a bit of His splendor.

I found this teaching at the beginning of 2016, and I feel like I need to listen to it again. How about you?

We want God’s power in our lives but this is important here:

Don’t look at the obstacles as things that are negative. Look at them as positives. This too shall pass. God will get glory in my body. God will get glory in my finances. He will get glory in me. He leads us down the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake, that He may show His glory in you.

“When I lead you out to wherever you’re going and whatever you’re doing, I’m doing it for My name”~ to get glory for Himself, that people would see.

Now you and I are that light in a dark world. We are the salt of the earth. We are that in the earth which draws all men unto God. It’s not for our sake, but for His sake. So if you have challenges in your life and difficulties along your path, that thing before you exists for one purpose. I want you to think in your mind of the difficulty or the challenge you’ve had recently and I want you to put that in your mind right now . . . If the Lord was standing here and He asked you, “What can I do for you?” You think of that one thing. Hold it in your mind. That one thing exists for one purpose—that He may be glorified.

And all that means is this: if it exists, then there is grace to meet that thing! Whether it be a physical ailment or a financial situation, if it exists, there is grace for it. Above and beyond you could imagine or think. We all want miracles.[end]

The blind man received His sight, and God got the glory. The paralyzed man was healed, and God got the glory. The centurion's servant was given life, and God got the glory. When miracles happen, God gets the glory. People are drawn to know God, and that will eventually bring them to salvation. God will get the glory when He helps solve our challenges, put our 'situation' to rights. The grace is there for us.

This is a step beyond positive thinking. It’s trusting God fully! And why not?

A. For finances He said:

Malachi 3:10-11

“Begin by being honest. Do honest people rob God?

But you rob me day after day. “You ask, ‘How have we robbed you?’

“The tithe and the offering—that’s how!

And now you’re under a curse—the whole lot of you—

because you’re robbing me.

Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury

so there will be ample provisions in my Temple.

Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven

itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams.

For my part, I will defend you against marauders,

protect your wheat fields and vegetable gardens against plunderers.”

The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

B. For physical healing He said:

Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)

But He was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed.

So many promises in the Bible, and they are true! We trust God and stand on them~ doing our part. Notice Malachi says:

"Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams."

The promises are there, and He is true to them, but we must have the right attitude of heart. God wants our hearts! Is our heart surrendered to God? Do we trust Him to take care of our problem? Are we willing to stand on faith? It's about the relationship. We focus on our mighty God, not the situation.

                                        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.
