Looking Up

“Infinite Possibilities” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

I admit that I have often struggled to find a balance between keeping my feet on the ground and having my head in the clouds—keeping my thoughts in the heavens that is. I always thought that “looking up” meant continuing to looking forward to Christ’s reign. Someday, Christ would return. Someday, the Kingdom would come, and the earth would be restored. All the while, the daily demands and desires of the flesh kept me miserably rooted to the earth moment by moment. How could I practically pursue heavenly things while still in the flesh?

Over the years, God has been teaching me what it truly means to be heavenly-minded. Christ’s reign is now. In fact, Christ can reign through you and me in the earth today. It simply takes a yielded heart that’s willing to look up and ask, “God what would you like to do in the earth through me right now?”

And this perspective by no means limits our life on earth or the things we can accomplish. It doesn’t mean that we forsake our basic human needs or tremble in fear over our carnal desires. On the contrary, when we yield our hearts to Christ, we are allowing Him to reign over us. And when we allow Him to reign in our hearts, we enter the realm of the Kingdom—the realm of unlimited possibilities. Through the Holy Spirit within us, we each have access to the thoughts and perspective of the Eternal One. This way, we can keep our heads in the heavenlies and view the things of earth as God does instead of through the lens of our flesh.

Temporal desires and fears no longer drive me when I am truly being heavenly-minded. Instead, I am motivated by a desire to explore, create, and build as the Creator inspires me. All at once, I feel connected to that spark of the Eternal within me that has always been waiting to express Himself uniquely through my hands.

Colossians 3:1-2 (TPT) Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.

Matthew 6:25, 31-33 (NKJV) “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? …Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Holding the Right Hand of God

“Abundant Fruit” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{hearing} I’m going to hold the right hand of God. I’m going to have His favor.

The Father is declaring these words as a truth over you, and He desires for you to come into agreement with them. He desires for you to understand what it means to be favored in His eyes. This concept may be something that you’ve perceived with your intellect, but now Father is calling you to come up a bit higher to understand this from Heaven’s perspective. Come and know what it means to rest in God’s favor and live knowing that, in Christ, you too are seated at the right hand of the Father.

In Scripture, to be at the right side is to be in a special place of honor. The right hand of God is associated with His power, authority, might, and blessings. The Father desires for you to live securely from this position in His Kingdom.

Resist the urge to shrink back or shut down fearing that you are walking in arrogance. There is a difference between confidence and arrogance, between humble authority and a power trip. As a sovereign heir, you have no need to apologize for who are! You are the beloved of the King, and you are a mighty one in Him!

Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and teach you how to walk in the mantle of favor that God has placed upon your shoulders. For not only will you hold God’s right hand, but He will strengthen your right hand, causing you to be a mighty one in Him and a source of blessing in the earth. Know that God’s grace goes before you and behind you, covering every step that you take.

Colossians 3:1 (TPT) Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority!

Ephesians 2:6 (NLT) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.
