A HIGHWAY FOR OUR GOD - PART 5

MONDAY 11 MARCH 2024


When the voices of my imaginative, cogitative and cognitive conversation, engrossed the interest of my thought pattern, and was racing with the vehicle of my calm determination - to find the accurate subject for this series of article, this very topic "a high way for our God" approached and captured my attention with the ease of adequate relief. Today, the topic is coming to an end with this article. And I believe that we have received an in-depth comprehensive analysis concerning the voice of one crying repentance in the wilderness, that will grip the frame of our inwardness, and remain pinned to our memory for the rest of our lives.


Reference: Isaiah 40:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

"A voice of one calling: In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."


Today, I will expound the last line of the final segment, which is highlighted in capital letters: "And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. FOR THE MOUTH OF THE LORD HAS SPOKEN."


Beloved, the glory of the Lord has been revealed in human flesh, and all people who have received the Saviour as their personal Lord, have acknowledged it, in accordance with the spoken word from the Lord. To that effect, Romans 7:6 reads, "But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit" (NLT).


What about Christ? He has ascended to the heavens, having completed His earthly assignment. Hebrews 1:3 (ESV) reads, "He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high." By making purification for sins, Christ brought the benefits below to those who believe in Him:


1. He has offered us forgiveness of sins and trespasses (Ephesians 2;1-3).


2. He has blotted out or abolished the "ordinances" that were against us (Colossians 2:14).


3. He has given us a spiritual life (Galatians 5:25). 


4. He has triumphed over all our foes and has delivered us from the powers and influences of the kingdom of darkness (Colossians 1:13-15; 2:15).


5. Those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified (Romans 8:30).


"For the mouth of the Lord has spoken" is a sure phraseology that reveals the inevitable demonstration of Isaiah's prophetic utterances because they are not man's speech. In other words, it is plain that the prophetic utterances are sure to lead to the result of the described dictates contained in our versified reference. And it is certain to happen by the quickening influence of the Spirit because it is the sovereign Father's will.


Now the nature of your belief when the Lord has spoken must never be described negatively. So refuse to carry the weight of doubting thoughts. Don't be a babe or weak and unstable in such belief, thereby fluctuating from within, through the standpoint of uncertainty. Be consistent with such persuasion, with an attitude of expectation blended with unco certainty, so you can cultivate a solidified sense of connection with the spoken Word, until you behold the tangible presence of the materialization in the daylight of a real world.


How does this verity apply to our personal experiences? When the mouth of the Lord has spoken anything that pertains to your life, you must receive it and look forward to the happening display, with a nod of agreement, and an intensity of expectation, so you can cross paths with the outcomes of the manifestation. An encounter with the law of expectation opens the window into a world beyond hoping for the moment of manifestation, which is: experiencing the physical reality.


To that effect, 2 Corinthians 4:18 reads, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (KJV).


Therefore, let the realm of your mind be humming with the hues of "possibility" mentality - by cogitating on the promise or prophetic utterance with ardent alacrity, and more so, allow the Spirit of God to prepare your heart to believe for what is coming - by building your faith with the teachings of His Word, so you can mingle your belief system, with a true conviction of the defined truth, embodied in your heart by faith. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Isaiah 49:11; Jeremiah 31:21; Proverbs 15:19; Isaiah 62:10; Proverbs 16:17.


Guided Prayer:

Heavenly Father, your Word is true, perfect and eternal, and I believe everything you have spoken concerning me with joy, laughter and a sweet melody in my heart. I acknowledge that I live a life of faith attuned to spiritual realities and defined by accurate understanding of your wondrous perfections, for your mouth has spoken glorious things about me, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
