Cast Up A Highway



If Cancer Can Be A Joyful Journey. . .

Posted on October 26, 2016 at 6:25 AM

Isaiah has long been one of my favorite books of the Bible, because You, my Lord, used it to speak words of great encouragement to me when I really needed it. In Isaiah 43,verse one, You told me that You called me by my name, Mary, and that I am Yours. That settled my heart right down into peace. Then you told me I did not need to fear the chemo of treatment for:

Isaiah 43:2

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;

And through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you.

When you walk through fire, you will not be scorched,

Nor will the flame burn you.

You totally turned the cancer journey into a joyful walk with You. Thank You my mighty Lord God! You are quite wonderful!! (Related in a chapter of the book: Cast Up A Highway)

Today as I read on in Isaiah 43 You give more encouragement as another truth jumps out when You say:

“I, [only] I, am the Lord,

And there is no Savior besides Me.

12 “I have declared [the future] and saved [the nation] and proclaimed [that I am God],

And there was no strange (alien) god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses [among the pagans],” declares the Lord,

“That I am God."

13 “Even from eternity I am He,

And there is no one who can rescue from My hand;

I act, and who can revoke or reverse it?”

You alone are God, and only You can save us from destruction~ in every way. At this time in our nation, evil is fighting vigorously to win. You alone are strong enough to save us, and we depend on You. We may be the remnant, but we praise You as our Almighty God, and we count on You to be our Savior. You sent Your Son and saved our souls from damnation; You cleansed us totally by taking on our sin and paying the debt off. Now we pray for You to save our nation. Evil cannot have it!

When we accept Your magnificent gift of freedom from satanic rule, Jesus, we come into a glorious relationship of love with God Almighty; we actually live in Your Kingdom, and become ambassadors for You. That is our new career, and I, for one, like it! Life in Your Kingdom is so good; I can feel Your constant Presence, that quiet peaceful joy of divine companionship. Oh Jesus, thank You!

My God, my God, how grand You are! You are due all praise and worship “Yea God! How I do love You!”

You created the stars and the moon as lights in the dark of night. Even in the night sky You gave us the moon to reflect the sun’s light. That applies to all kinds of darkness including when the enemy tries to attack; it tries to conceal itself in the shadows, but the reflection of the light of the Son in us always can penetrate the gloom and lift up truth. We are the moon to Your Son. There is no one like You Lord!

Isaiah 43:13

Even from eternity I am He,

And there is no one who can rescue from My hand;

I act, and who can revoke or reverse it?”

I am securely in Your hand, and no enemy can kidnap me away from You. You created this nation as Your own, and the enemy cannot capture it away from You either. You created it for Yourself, and the enemy is trying but shall never succeed. Your Word says “I act, and who can revoke or reverse it?” We humbly bow down before You, O great God, and we bring You to remembrance of Your Word.

Isaiah 55:8-11 (AMP)

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,

Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

So are My ways higher than your ways

And My thoughts higher than your thoughts.

10 “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven,

And do not return there without watering the earth,

Making it bear and sprout,

And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

11 So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;

It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),

Without accomplishing what I desire,

And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

We know Lord that Your Word is truth; we may not immediately comprehend its deepest meaning, but Holy Spirit helps us.

Now lets look further in Isaiah 43:

Isaiah 43:18-20 (AMP)

“Do not remember the former things,

Or ponder the things of the past.

19 “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing,

Now it will spring forth;

Will you not be aware of it?

I will even put a road in the wilderness,

Rivers in the desert.


20 “The beasts of the field will honor Me,

Jackals and ostriches,

Because I have given waters in the wilderness

And rivers in the desert,

To give drink to My people, My chosen.

Yes Father You give water in the desert~

if we drift away into a dry godless place, or wander away from You and get into a dry desert region of the spirit, we can repentantly return to You and You will loose a refreshing spring to satisfy our thirst for You, and instill within us the cleansing spiritual spring we require to return to Your Presence. Then we thankfully bask there and joyfully praise You to all people telling them of Your goodness.

You actually prepared me and worked through me to create a road in the wilderness to help lead Your people to You/back to You; it’s called Cast Up A Highway and uses Your Word to bring truth to people. It’s blog carries truth to thousands of people with Your Word. I humbly prostrate myself before You in joy as Your Word goes forth. []

Thank You for Your Word Lord, for talking to us. Thank You for the relationship with You where we can bond on a deeper level. We desire more of You Lord!! Come Lord Jesus. Carry us deeper!

                                        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.
