When The Death Of The Cross
It Mark In Your Life
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, when the death of the Cross makes its mark
in your life then My image in you will be manifest. I took your sorrows, and I took your pain that you might live above desperation and captivity. Make a choice, says God. Make a choice to relinquish the outcome. When you relinquish the outcome the tyranny
of emotion will be broken in your life, and peace, My Peace will find you. Make a determination in spite of the waves of grief and unrequited longing to have no opinion. Am I not more to you than innumerable earthly possessions?
Refuse to fear what happens next or what happened yesterday or last month or last year. I’m standing in your future mocking the power of the present to confine you. I AM standing in your past, treading down the poisonous infection of emptiness
and pain. Emotions, speculations, plans of man and purposes of the uninformed heart will no longer hold you when you think like I think and embrace My Mind no matter how deeply your mind seeks to hold you bound. I AM here. Listen to Me. I AM here — talk
to Me. Accept the Grace I’ve put in your path and feed on My Faithfulness.
I know your heart, says God. I AM touched with the infirmities that no remedy in the depths or the heights can cure. Have
I not sent My Remedy into your life? Have I not surrounded you with unbending Grace, and Love, and Safety? Not on your terms but on mine. Stop trying to force things to your mold, you don’t have all the information. Behold, I heal your incurable wound
and make you God-kind, blood bought, crucified to sin, reflecting My Glory in the face of Jesus Christ. Lay your desires, your longings, your regrets and self-recriminations on the altar before My Throne.
things will then become coals that release a sweet-smelling savor to Me and no longer an incense of misgiving and captivity in your life. Call out to Me. Cry out to Me in the day of trouble — I will not turn a deaf ear or a closed heart to what you are
facing. None of this took Me by surprise. Do you trust Me? You SAY you trust Me but if so, you will release the reigns and let Me take it from here. Then the hands of time will gain pace and with speed translate you to highest heart’s desire and greatest
