DEVOTION: “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” – Colossians 3:2
What a verse. I was just tuning into the debate for 3 minutes and had to turn it off. Then I open my bible and see this verse. Amazing.
We are so prone, especially during an election year, to focus entirely on the things that we are bombarded with every day. Politics, education, health care issues, the list goes on and on. We are programmed to be preoccupied with these issues. Are they important? Absolutely. Are they the end all be all. Absolutely not.
I firmly believe that God is very much in control of all of this. He continually shows us his love, provision and guidance.
This small reminder to keep our eyes focused on the eternal. Things that are above and not of this Earth. It’s a sobering and peaceful reminder. We are not truly in control. We fight, argue, set our policies and rules in both a governmental way and a personal way and yet, all of it, every bit of it, is in Gods hands.
Our very lives. The air we breathe and the steps we take are all ordained by Him. Let us be reminded and remember that and seek His face and His ways first.
