“Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.”
When Peter walked on water (Matthew 14:29) he was only able to do so because he had his eyes fixed on Jesus. As soon as he looked away and around to the tumultuous winds swirling about, he began to sink.
I think the verse in Colossians 3:1 is telling us the same thing. When we keep our heart’s focus on things above, on Jesus and His ways, we can accomplish great things. Nothing is impossible. But when we start looking around at our scary circumstances we start to drown in them.
I hope this Monday Morning Moment gives you a better perspective for your week ahead!
Looking forward, pressing on and seeking God in every bump and twist in the road.
