Set your affections on things that are above, not on things that 
are on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ 
in God.” Col. 3:2,3

Why should I set my affections on God? For the very reason that God in
Christ saved me through death and now I am hidden with Christ in God.
There is so much here. This word is not a passive word. I looked it up in 
the dictionary and was amazed to find three pages devoted to this three
letter word.  For us it boils down to:

Set: to fix the heart
Fix: To direct the eye without moving it. To fix your attention on 
something.  (Or to look steadily at Someone with your 
heart. My take on it!)

What a challenge these verses are to me! God is asking me to fix my
heart on the invisible, when the visible, tangible clamors for my 

Papa, I bring this problem to You. May I hear Your whisper today.
May I see the invisible through the visible.
