I broke my arm really badly once riding my bike to school. To get the bone set, they had to place two screws in my elbow.
After I had surgery to set my bone, they wrapped up my arm in a big brace to help me from moving my arm and damaging my broken elbow further.
Today’s Bible verse talks about setting our hearts on things above.
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 (NIV)
When we set our hearts on something, we focus on it intently. The focus is so intense that we don’t allow any circumstances, situation or anything moves it.
We should be setting our hearts and minds so much on Jesus that nothing sways us. If we’re going to walk in the good things God has for us, we’ve got to make Jesus our focus above all else.
Today, if you’ve gotten your focus off Jesus, determine to change. Do what’s needed to get your focus on Him and what He’s doing and off yourself. God has good things in store for you if you’ll set your heart and focus on Him!
