"1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." Colossians 3:1-4
"4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal." Is 26:4
Circumstances are the most distracting things in the world and attitude is absolutely crucial in the middle of a battleground. Because we are called by God to be conformed to the image of His son, we are in a battleground. Our enemy's primary targets are our children, our marriages, our calling.
This morning, (for that matter, this whole week) has been a struggle, and the battleground has been in my mind. It's a battle to decide whether I'll be looking at the pain of my circumstances or the provision of My Lord. This time it truly is a heart battle. It's about my attitude. Do I believe I am loved or that I am useless? Who do I believe?
What I believe is dependent on where I focus. This morning, my Father's message was "Watch Me." There have been moments today that were hard, moments that were productive. In the end, He wins a little more each day. It's good enough for now.
