SET 

Getting set is primarily about two things:

1- POSTURE

Colossians 3:1-4(AMP) – Therefore if you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, sharing in His resurrection from the dead], keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value].  For you died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

2- PERSPECTIVE

1 Corinthians 9:25-26 (AMP) –  25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.

Philippians 4:8-9 (AMP)Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].  The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.

Matthew 6:33 (AMP)But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.
