What Heaven says
Colossians 3:1 – Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not earthly things.
Don’t forget that earth isn’t your home. When things seem uncertain, and you’re left feeling frustrated, disappointed and let down, you need to set your mind on Home. You need to remind yourself that your Father in Heaven has a seat saved for you in eternity.
We all have goals that we set for ourselves in life, but the ultimate goal is Jesus. It’s not the end if you don’t get that job promotion next month. It’s not the end if your boyfriend breaks your heart. It’s not the end if you can’t seem to get where you want to be just yet. Those are our earthly goals! Our real prize is waiting for us in eternity. That’s when we can make ourselves comfortable and let joy overflow us like never before.
So don’t get too tied up with disappointments and failures here on earth. Set your mind on what Heaven says about you and about your future. Set your mind on Jesus. Set your mind on the Word. Set your mind on everything to do with Him and His love for you, because that’s what it’s all about.
