Waiting…not something anyone likes or, for the most part, is very good at. Maybe you’re in a season where it feels like you’ve been waiting forever for God to do something. No matter what your waiting season looks like, this post has something for you. We’ll use David’s life, and the Psalms he wrote, as our guide for discovering what the Bible says about “waiting on the Lord” and how waiting benefits us. By the end of this Bible study style post I pray you’ll be able to do as it says in Isaiah 40:31.
Keeping your mind on God or “setting your mind on things above” is tough, but tough doesn’t mean impossible. If you’re struggling to keep your mind stayed on the Lord, you’re not alone. Even Jesus’ disciples, who were with Him all day, struggled with this. We’re going to use their stories and Jesus’ replies, to learn why you and I are supposed to keep our hearts and minds on things above. Before we get to the disciples we’ll explore Colossians 3:1-4 to learn what we can about this mindful Christian behavior of keeping your heart and mind on God. After all, there are a lot of other things to think about and fill your mind with, right?
