Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Colosians 3: 2
The quality of your mind determines the quality of your success. God’s desire
and plan is for everyone of His children to do something purposeful and
powerful with their lives. God wants you to succeed because your success is God’s success. He has wired into you the strength that you require to succeed and also placed resources in the earth to ensure you become the best of your life. The extent of your present success is a product of the quality of your mind.
God has given you the ability to develop your mind according to Colossians 3:1-2 andthatissolelyyourresponsibility. IfyouhaverisenwithChrist,youshouldset your mind on Christ. Whatever you want to do, you have to set your mind on achievingthosethings. Settingyourmindactuallymeansprogrammingyourmind in the direction of what you have decided to achieve without allowing external forces of distraction.
Knowing that all you need to succeed is within you and all the resources you need has been made available, begin to program your mind in tune with what you have set out to achieve. It could be that you want to take on a new project and it does not look like there is anything on ground for you to work with. You must be conscious that you have an excellent mind in Christ. So, set your mind on the reality of God’s Word that assures you that He has made all things available to you that you need for life and godliness. Once you start, everything would surely fall into.
