Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:6-8). Paul was heavenly minded, but he was still aware there was a race to be finished. As believers, our minds should be the same. While we focus our minds on God, we have a race to run, a battle to fight also here on this earth. Every morning as we are awakened, we need to put on the spiritual armor in order to fight that battle. Putting on the Belt of Truth, Breastplate of Righteousness, feet shod with the Gospel of Peace to share, Shield of Faith, Helmet of Salvation and The Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. And finally, we bathed all of this in Prayer. We can be that heavenly minded because of Jesus. Remember, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). Stay focused on heavenly things, stay focused on God!
Have a Blessed Day!
