“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.”
If you are saved, this verse is speaking directly to you!
On those days when your mind is spinning, and you don’t know which way to turn, this is a great verse to help reset your perspective. Look up! When we seek those things which are above, our outlook changes to what really matters.
It is so easy to get weighed down with the cares of this world. Whether great or small, our enemy the devil knows just what buttons to push to get us distracted and deter us from our purpose. On those days when nothing seems to go right and you feel like a failure (let’s face it, we’ve all been there), remind him of his future!
Our verse today tells us where our Saviour currently resides, seated on the right hand of God. He is sitting because His work is finished. But one day, very soon, He will once again leave His heavenly throne. Only this time, He will meet us, His bride, in the air and will escort us into the place He went to prepare for us.
Satan is having a hay day right now, as he knows his time is running out. He knows he has only a little while longer to continue his reign as the god of this world. Don’t focus on him and his friends. That’s exactly what he wants. He wins when we let down our guard and allow him to change our focus from what God would have us to do. Sometimes he uses people, even Christians, to distract us. Don’t let him get the victory.
Look up today, Christian! Our redemption draweth nigh!
Remind yourself of your home in Heaven that Christ has prepared for you. Remind Satan of his future and tell him to leave you alone. You are not his; you are a child of the King of Kings!
