“Set your mind on things above, not on things on earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

(Colossians 3:2+3)

This scripture is so interesting and mysterious. Did you know that you died when You invited Jesus into your life? And that the moment you died your life was hidden with Christ in God. Wait, where? I don’t really know, but it definitely means that it is the safest place there is. No fear there at all, all everyone sees when they look at us there is Christ.

But at times we focus on the things on earth – we worry, we think too much of others’ opinions, we feel hurt – and we slip away from Christs’ hiding place and back into our old bodies.
We can be so silly, we exchange God’s joy, peace and safety with things far less valuable, things that are hurtful even. But the good news is that Jesus never lets us go. We only have to look back into His eyes to realize we are still safely hidden with Him up there.

So remember this, whenever you find yourself in anxiety, feeling hurt, discouraged, just glance up to Him. He has covered you completely. He is loving you completely. No matter what you did, or what happened, at that moment all the past is forgotten.

Set your mind on things above.
