“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1)
Today is a brand new day with all the possibilities one’s imagination can muster. Once your feet hit the ground from a soft bed and you start moving forward, the rest of the day is an open book and an unturned page. Before moving too fast into the traffic flow of another day, breathe. But breathe with purpose and a specific direction in mind! Here it comes: “Set Your Heart on Things Above!”
How is that going to happen today? Ride the wave of this verse and let it take you where the Spirit of God desires your attendance. “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ…” Breathe that in for a moment right now and celebrate with a smile that you are alive in Christ Jesus, not living or even destined to live in the lowlands of despair or destruction. You are raised with Christ. Resurrection power is yours positionally and waiting to be tapped presently.
Because you belong to Christ, your heart, the real you, that inner you that speaks and beats to a heartbeat empowered by The Eternal Almighty King of Kings, is waiting to be set into motion by your will. Choose a higher aim today. Focus on what God’s values and purposes are being completely accomplished without any detour. See your place there, even now, waiting for divine directives for the rest of your day. And as you wait for His next Word for you, allow your inner sight to focus on Christ. He’s there at the right hand of God, the seat of power and authority for all of creation…especially this day, the only day you are given, the very one He’s created for you to enjoy.
Thank you, Jesus for this moment to remain long enough in your presence, to see who You are! Oh, that I would live like who I am, and with a fixed focus upon what You desire of me this day!
