(Set Your Mind On Spiritual Things)

👤 Pastor Chris

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

When you study the opening verse in the King James Version, “Set your mind” is rendered as “Set your affection.” That phrase comes from one Greek word “phroneo,” that means “to set the mind or thinking, an activity of the mind and how your mind works.” It originates from two words; one meaning, “To rein in,” which is “to bring under control,” as you say, “I want to rein in a horse.” The second word means, “To block in or fence in.” Thus, what the opening scripture says is for you to have control of your mind and consciously set your thinking on spiritual things. The things you think about are the things that will control your actions.

For example, you may have been grappling with a certain habit—a habit that affects the way you serve and live for the Lord—that reduces your effectiveness and efficiency. You might have prayed about it, yet, nothing seems 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, second, deliberately focus your mind on the Word.


Practise exercising your mind through conscious thoughts of the Word. If, for whatever reason, an unwholesome thought comes to you, say, “No,” and then, switch your mind to the Word. Don’t be surprised if such thoughts creep in again; resist them and repeat the process. James 4:7 says “…Submit to God. 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.
