S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
St. Paul teaches the young “Followers of Jesus” at the church in Colossae to mentally get free of earthly entanglements. He said the way to do that is to set your mind on things above (The City of Heaven), and not on earthly things.
Heaven is all about … “You Can!” Earth is all about “You Can’t!” Heaven: “You Can have a happy family!” Earth: “You Can’t be happy as a family, you have way too many problems!” Heaven: “Yes, your business plan is fantastic and you will win!” Earth: “A million other people have tried the same thing and failed, you will fail too!” I could go on and on with yes you can, no you can’t, but you catch my drift. By setting your mind on things above, you are being commanded to think higher thoughts and think those thoughts for a “Long Time.” People who are chained to the earth with their “you can’t” thought patterns want you to think like they do, but God wants you to … “Think Long.”
I know Your Word says that Your thoughts are higher than our thoughts. But today I ask that You would help me elevate my thoughts and do it for a … “Long Time.” Amen
