Desire the King
Colossians 3:1, 2 -
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
One of the important things we need to develop in the process of being Born-again in Christ is detaching from this world. It does not means that we cease to live, or isolate ourselves, or do not enjoy our lives here.
Part of our salvation promise contains living a satisfied earthly life. When we are Born-again we detach from our earthly family of Adam and Eve, and in spirit get connected to our Heavenly Father becoming part of the Heaven Family via our Brother Jesus Christ. If our Family is Heavenly then our desires also should be Heavenly not earthly. The things of the earth should be just for our need, not for our enjoyment. Enjoyment is done with our hearts; if our heart is rooted in Heaven then we automatically enjoy only things of the Heavenly Kingdom.
When we receive Christ then automatically all the earthly things which we need are added unto us, since Christ is the King of all creation; desire the King.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, You are the King in my heart. Your Spirit connects me to You. Your blessings which I received fulfills all me needs and more. Help me not to be anxious and focused on my earthly needs but to receive more and more of your Heavenly Kingdom. This I ask in your Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
