Cast Up A Highway



Is God Your Partner?

Posted on July 22, 2016 at 6:05 AM

Scent of coffee greeted us as we entered my sister and brother-in-law's home. Hugs warmly shared; happy words of sincere delight in seeing each other again sparkled in the air.

They led us down to their beautiful patio with its flowers and wonderful mountain view across a golf course. The setting was a display of God’s love for us. A doorbell called to announce the arrival of one more sibling and spouse. More delight and hugs. It's a rare occasion these days when we can gather together. My dear sis and husband did a beautiful job as hosts in their lovely home. And my sister knows my dietary restrictions and went out of her way to cook special dishes that I could fully enjoy! That’s love!

The enemy is after destroying families and relationships. But God knows how to be present and create an atmosphere of love, and He did that yesterday. It was a jovial time with my sisters' sharing of their recent visit to Peru with fun and funny experiences. We laughed a lot and totally enjoyed our time together!

In contrast to our peace filled loving visit, if we look at the news of the world and all the killing and mayhem, one can surly observe satan’s hatred. He has his men of ISIS working to exterminate Christians in brutal fashions. Finally it is beginning to be recognized by world organizations as genocide, and hopefully action will be taken against ISIS. Then there is the more recent brutal attack in France. But one does not have to travel that far to see the enemy’s work.

Family relationships are targeted by the enemy, and many families have rifts in them. It comes through the enemy’s evil deceptions and lies that people believe; then hurt and unforgiveness erupts, and this alone is responsible for many relationship disruptions. The result often affects the children in the family, as the hurt spreads and creates disunity. Breaking a family is one of satan’s favorite tools.

But God will have the victory. God works through men and women like us to bring truth and victory. Look at Acts 26:

Acts 26:17-18 The Message

‘I’m sending you off to open the eyes of the outsiders

so they can see the difference between dark and light, and choose light,

see the difference between Satan and God, and choose God.

I’m sending you off to present my offer of sins forgiven,

and a place in the family, inviting them into the company

of those who begin real living by believing in me.’

Jesus has given us a part in redeeming the world. We each have our own little patch of earth to till and plant, water and harvest~ our own contacts, friends, relatives, strangers God will bring across our paths. As we live life serving Jesus as our Lord and Savior, our lives shine with His brightness, and it is noticed by those we meet. Living right in His joy and light draws others to us. Saw a phrase the other day~ be a “fire lighter’. Think about lighting the fire of God's love and forgiveness in others.

My friends, God loves us all so much! We can bask in His love and soak it in like a sponge. Then when we encounter people it seeps out refreshing them with the anointing love of God. His love so emanates peace and stillness, joy and gladness. Are you sharing Jesus love and truth with your loved ones?

Do you invite strangers into the Kingdom? Holy Spirit will give you the words if you ask. He is your partner in this work!

                                        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.
