Today, I want to share with you a great scripture I found in Colossians 3:2. It says to “set your mind,and keep it set , on those things that are above, rather than those things on earth”.
Why should our focus not be on earthly things? Because these things are temporal, and have no eternal value.
Now God is not saying that we shouldn’t pay our bills, or take care of our family, or clean our houses. Instead, he is saying that our focus on earthly things shouldn’t become so great that we miss our greater reward: an eternity in HEAVEN with HIM 🙂
WHAT AM I FOCUSING ON TODAY?
There is so much that can be said of this one scripture. But, let us ask ourselves this question: What am I focusing on today?
Am I focusing on the negative issues in my life that are filled with stress and dis-“ease”. This kind of stressful lifestyle can bring about much illness. The number one killer of women is heart disease. And cancer is becoming the leading killer in both men and women globally.
If you find yourself in this state of stress, now is the time to refocus your thoughts. Start saying positive things over your life and your situation. Start to speak biblical affirmations over your life knowing that God will help you. For “Life and Death are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21)
