Cast Up A Highway



When My Heart Is In Pain

Posted on July 7, 2017 at 7:55 AM

Tears flowed down her face. Despite her prayers, the infant has died. Did her prayers mean nothing? "God, don’t You hear me? Are Your promises true or not?"

Pain has a way of chaining our heart to doubt. How do I come out of that? How do I become strong enough to defeat the enemy’s deceitful ways of chaining me down to hurt? In the book Cast Up A Highway it says, “Because of the desperate need for consolation, the enemy is right there trying to spill gasoline on the fire of our pain to keep our focus there.” Where our focus is~there our mind will be.


How do I break the enemy chains and escape the pain? There is no escape; there is only walk through. One power tool that's a potent support is our faith, and it must be strong like any good tool; as pilings must be established on a staunch foundation, so must be our faith. Our foundation is a mighty God powerful and magnificent.

Ah, but does He care? Sometimes it does not feel like it. So where does that leave us? The Word says we cannot live by our feelings, but by the Word of God; therefore, it is critical to speak out the Word against the enemy who uses our feeling to cast doubt and magnify the pain:

Psalm 91:1-3 (AMP)

HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. You, Lord, are my deliverer.

Isaiah 41:10 (AMP)

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice. You Lord are my sturdy support through all my trials!

God’s Word builds an inner sturdiness in our faith that will support us through pain and every storm. Our God loves us as His precious children and always desires to help us. Yet every parent knows you cannot give children everything they want. You cannot remove all pain from their lives. So, too, our Almighty God is aware of everything past, present, and future. He knows better than we do, what will bring goodness into our lives and what will not. Thus, in His love He sometimes says “No” or “Not yet”.

Our part in growing our faith is to grow our trust~ trust God’s love for us and stand on the Word. If we are going through the desperate pain of the loss of a loved one, choose to receive God’s consolation, for He will bring a healing balm to hearts. We must trust Him even when we do not understand. Cry on His shoulder and allow Him to hold and comfort us. He will do it; trust Him in that. He always does the best for us, even when we might not agree with Him.

God is faithful and as we build intimacy with Him, our faith will strengthen. We will still suffer pain, but God will lead us gently up out of it. He loves us dearly! His plans for us are good.

Revelation 21:3-4

and then I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “See! The tabernacle of God is among men, and He will live among them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them [as their God,] 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be death; there will no longer be sorrow and anguish, or crying, or pain; for the former order of things has passed away.”

This is our promise of His love and our marvelous future.

                                        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.
