MESSAGE:

ven though “affection” is quite a good and strong rendering in
the verse above, the Greek word, “phroneo” is a little more
practical. It means to set your mind or your thinking; an activity of the
mind; how your mind works. It originates from two words; one meaning,
“To reign in,” like you say, “I’ve got to reign this fellow in”; that is, to bring
him under control.

The second word means, “To block in or fence in.”
Thus, the admonition to set your affection on things above means
to have control on your mind and consciously set your thinking on
spiritual things.

Remember that the things you think about are the things
that will control your actions.
For example, you may have been wrestling with certain habits;
habits that affect the way you serve and live for the Lord; habits that
reduce your effectiveness and efficiency.

You might have prayed about it,
yet, nothing seemed to have changed. It’s not so much about prayer as it’s about the use of your mind! Your mind is a very powerful machine;
you can twist or control it any way you choose. So, what you must do is
to first, consciously refuse to think on those things you know aren’t
wholesome, and deliberately focus your mind on the Word.

Practise exercising your mind through conscious thought. If, for
whatever reason, an unwholesome thought comes to you, say, “No,” and
then, switch your mind to something excellent; to the Word.

Don’t be
surprised if such thoughts creep in again; resist it and repeat the
process. James 4:7 says “…Resist the devil, and he will flee from
you.” God knows what’s in the devil, and He tells us if we resist him, he’ll
flee; that’s got to be the necessary result!

Exercise your mind to develop a liking for spiritual things; exercise
your interests in the things of God. Attend church services. Study and
meditate on the Word. Maintain a robust prayer schedule. Win souls.

These are spiritual activities to consciously engage in, in training yourself
to “reign-in” your outward man! Hallelujah!

I consciously exercise my mind to focus on the spiritual realities of
the Word, and project myself to greater levels of success,
prosperity and victory. By the power of the Spirit, I cast off
worthless and unproductive thoughts, and use my mind correctly to picture the glorious and victorious life that I have in Christ. Amen.
