Every day is an opportunity to focus on God. I can get up in the morning and set my mind on the love and goodness of God.  Here are three ways to positively set your mind on God.

1) God is with you.

Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Psalm 145: 18-19 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

No matter what you’re going to face today; God is with you.  What a truth to claim at the start of every day!

2) God is in you.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure (ESV).

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him” (NLT).

“God is working in you.” The word “working” in Greek is the word energos, from which we get the word “energy.” God is the energy driver in your life. You’re not just going on willpower. You’re not just going on your own power. God says he will give you the power you need.

3) God is for you.

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (ESV)

God is for me every day. His power is for me. His presence is with me. His promises are for me. God is allowing goodness and mercy to follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23:6).

Every morning, get up and claim this truth about God in your life. God, you are with me. God, you are in me. God, you are for me. What a way to start the day.
