Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Jesus performed most of his teaching outdoors along the banks of the Lake Tiberias in Galilee. I could imagine him standing on one of the hills sloping down to the lake, pointing at the birds that were foraging in the long grass nearby, saying, “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.” Then he adds, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.”
Jesus knew what tomorrow would bring him. He knew, as the Suffering Servant, he would be despised and rejected by men; wounded for their transgressions and crushed for their iniquities. As the Son of God, he had spiritual insight into the greatest trial any person could ever face – to bear the wages of sin. Yet we read that, for the joy set before, he endured the cross, despised its shame and is saw himself on the other side of the cross, seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Jesus looked beyond his tomorrow and saw himself victorious.
What are you facing tomorrow? Are you fearful of the unknown? Are you worrying where the next paycheque will come from? Will your health hold out? What about the unforeseen calamities that face us all? If you have concerns like these then Listen: “Set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
If you know Christ as Lord and Savour, then you are found in him – you are in Christ! In Christ, you are a new creation. In Christ, you are alive to God. In Christ, God will meet all your needs. And in Christ, you are seated with God in heavenly places. All this means that you are safe and secure, in Christ, and God is your provider. He has your tomorrow in his hands. Like the birds of the air, he will meet all your needs. So, don’t worry about tomorrow, just fix your gaze on Jesus and your mind on things above.
God-tracking is being secure in Christ

2 Corinthians 5:17
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I choose, therefore, to fix my gaze on Jesus and my mind on things above
“O my Lord, thank you so much that you have my tomorrow in your hands. I can’t see into the future, but I believe you are already beyond my tomorrow, preparing the way for me. You are my provider. You are my healer. You are my source and my resource. Today I put all my confidence in your promises and trust that you will guide and provide for me and my loved ones, as you do for the birds of the air. I choose, therefore, to fix my gaze on Jesus and my mind on things above. Amen.”
