As, therefore, ye have most affectionately received the doctrine of Christ; and confess to be partakers of divine faith in Him, that promises spiritual and eternal things; SEEK THE THINGS ABOVE, and look to be ready for the pleasure that comes along with them.
“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, KEEP SEEKING THE THINGS ABOVE, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Col. 3:1) [Be intensely sincere for heavenly and eternal things, as you have been those that are earthly and perishing.] “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and YOUR LIFE IS HIDDEN WITH CHRIST IN GOD.” (Col. 3:2, 3) [Remember what you have heard, and PRACTICE it all each day; and let all your obedience be from your heart: “Let your heart keep my commandments.”!] “My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for THEY WILL PROLONG YOUR LIFE many years and bring you peace and prosperity. LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS NEVER LEAVE YOU; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then YOU WILL WIN FAVOR AND A GOOD NAME IN THE SIGHT OF GOD and man.” (Pro. 3:1-4) [Be confident or sure in the Lord, He is not the author of confusion! So lean on Him (He created all things and knows how they work). We can’t depend upon our own understanding (we haven’t created anything!), so in all we do, let’s trust in Him! We also need to surrender to Him in all we do and HE WILL SEE TO IT THAT WE ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH!] “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATHS STRAIGHT.” (Pro. 3:5-6)
Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that AS WE TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEART – HE WILL PUT US ON THE RIGHT PATH EACH DAY!
