Why Not Put ME At The Top Of The List
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, if you are going to emulate someone or something, why not put Me at the top of that list? I haven’t called you to follow after the conventions of men or popular
culture. I haven’t called you to be a slave of modern idolatries of the cult of celebrity. The talking heads may blather on, but there is no life in them. Those on the center stage have opinions about themselves and about you that do not reflect what
I have planned for you or where I AM taking you.
Purpose in your heart to see yourself as I see you. Make up your mind to hear only My Sound, for My sound in the earth is a sound of liberty and not bondage.
Even in the culture of My People there are emotion laden things that tend only to heaviness and a stripping down of inner defenses. Be careful how you hear and be careful what you hear, for I have called you to life, power and liberty, and not any lesser estate
I said in My Word and I have called you to be a follower of God — My Follower; an imitator of who I AM in the situation. What does that mean? That means in every circumstance and situation,
make up your mind to do what I would do if I were in your circumstance – because I AM. There is no failure in you, for I AM in you. There is no defeat in you for I AM, in you, the Undefeated. This isn’t about having everything you want or satisfying
the unsanctified whims of the carnal mind.
It is about adopting My Mind and My Heart and My Way, Truth, and Life as the default context in which you face every situation with joyful abandon knowing that
you will always land on your feet and fulfill all that I have destined for you to accomplish. You are My child. You are no less My child than the Only Begotten One who paid the price to call you brother and to call you sister. Live up to this in your faith
and your expectations. Lean into your identity in Me and you will never be left on the sidelines of life or in defeat in any way.
