As we journey in the world we realize we are not of the world; we seek those things which are above, not the things of earth. We have a will and need to be conscious of what our thoughts are set upon so we can immediately shift our focus when necessary.
When we sense heaviness, we exercise our mind to meditate on the things that are true, honest, just, pure, and lovely and of good report. The peace of God keeps our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. We look up when we feel down. We think on things that come from the mind of Christ, the things that are above because we are above and not beneath; the heavenly things—not the earthly. We pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven; that’s where our hearts are, and we expect the Kingdom to manifest in greater degree, day by day.
In order to keep our focus on the things above, the Holy Spirit gives us a bypass anointing. His presence and power enables us to bypass the natural. He enables us to avoid the traps of our adversary with His wisdom and our revelation in the knowledge of Christ. The bypass anointing goes around places or things where we should not be concerned; because they are powerless to stop us when we are in our place of authority, from glory to glory!
Colossians 3:1-2 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
