When you do something you shouldn’t have done, something you knew better than to do, you may have heard the phrase – where’s your head at? What where you thinking? What was happening?
That phrase is true, because our mind so often determines our actions. Our thoughts determine what we do, so many times. That’s one of the reasons why the Bible says submit your thoughts to Christ. Where our mind is will determine what we do.
So, today, where’s you head at? As we start this new day, where’s your head at? What are you thinking? What’s going on up there? What are you thinking about?
Listen to what Paul says in Colossians about where our head should be at:
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Today, set you mind on things above. Set your mind on the stuff of heaven, not the stuff of earth. It’s easy in life to get bogged down with the things of this world.
With the worries of this world and this day.
With our stresses.
With our to do lists.
With our temptations.
With our pride.
Today, where’s your head at? What are you thinking about? What are you focusing on? Where your head is at will determine what you do today.
Today, keep you thoughts on the things of God. And in that, may we find the strength and hope that we need to be faithful to God in all things.
