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 your 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 quickly into the traffic flow of another day, just breathe. Breathe with purpose and a specific direction in mind! Simply, “Set Your Heart on Things Above!”
How is this going to happen today? Ride the wave of this verse and let it take you where the Spirit of God desires you to be. 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. You are not living, or even destined to live, in the lowlands of despair and destruction. You are raised with Christ. Resurrection power is yours positionally and waiting to be tapped presently.
Because you belong to Christ, the real and inner you who speaks and beats to a heartbeat empowered by the Eternal Almighty King of Kings, is waiting to be set into motion. Choose a higher aim today. Focus on this: God’s values and purposes will be completely accomplished without any detour. Even now, you have a place, waiting for divine directives for the rest of your day. As you wait for His next Word for you, allow your inner self to focus on Christ. He is there at the right hand of God, at the seat of power and authority for all of creation. He is there for this day, the only day you are given; He created you to enjoy this very day.
Thank you, Jesus for this moment to remain long enough in your presence, to see who You are! I pray that I would live like one whom is focused on Christ this day.
