Have you ever heard of the phrase, “don’t be so heavenly mind that you are no earthy good?’ Of course, you have. Truth of the matter is God want us to be heavenly minded because that’s where we are seated.
IN HEAVENLY PLACES!
Setting our heart (affections, desires, mind, will, and emotions, above is positioning is to see and receive from a higher dimension which is heavenly where God abodes. God want us to see what He see and what is available to us. There is much more in heavenly places than what is on the earth. Remaining earthy minded is staying carnally minded, seeing things from a fleshly perspective and not Holy Spirit perspective. This causes our prayers to remain earth bound. Never touching the heavens therefore never receiving the full blessings God intended us to receive.
When our affections are placed on the things above, we come into alignment with what is already in store for us. We don’t have to work for it. It’s already ours. Being earthy minded will always say you have to work for this and that. We no longer have to work by the sweat of our brows.
That’s good news right there!
All we have to do is allow Holy Spirit to aligns us to what is already awaits us in the heavenly places for us. Let’s do this by first by taking our affections off the things of the world and ask Holy Spirit to help us to set our heart on the things above.
Now, watch the results that will follow.
*And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. [Ephesians 2:6 NKJV]
*Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. [Ephesians 1:3 NKJV]
*If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting on the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things on the earth. [Colossians 3:1; 2 NKJV]
