2 Corinthians 4:18> While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Keep your eyes on the Word. God doesn't consider our ability when He asks us to do things. Gods purpose doesn't consider our circumstance as we do.
God doesn't expect us to fulfill that call; He intends to do it Himself through our faith in His word. He intends to provide the power, the resources, the ability.....EVERYTHING!
All He expects us to do is believe and obey! We have to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Colossians 3:2> Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Many of us have learned to believe God to prosper us to such a degree that we have too much to keep up with. We end up spending so much time and energy taking care of the legitimate “things” of life that we unconsciously give the attention and affections of our heart over to this natural world instead of to God. It takes a lot more dedication to serve God when you’re prosperous than it takes when you’re desperate! There’s a constant temptation to get so caught up in the earthly things that your desire for the things of God fades into the background.
Don’t let the things of this world cause you to miss out on the glorious things of the spirit. Get your priorities in line with God’s Word. Set your mind on things above, and you’ll discover just how heavenly life was really meant to be!

Proverbs 4:7-8,> For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.... Prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her. The Amplified Bible
Put the Word of God first place in your daily life. God says that wisdom is the “principal thing.” Principal means “first in importance.” That means the Word of God needs to occupy the place of highest importance in all of your activities. Set other things aside. Invest your time in the Word first and that investment will soon be paying off in every area of your life.

Hebrews 4:16> Come boldly unto the throne of grace, that [you] may obtain"
According to the Word of God, you have a standing invitation from your heavenly Father to "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that [you] may obtain" That word obtain is a word of certainty. The dictionary says it means "to get possession of." So pray, expecting to get possession of what you need,
When you go to God in accurate, Word of God-based, Spirit-inspired prayer, you do know what He's going to do. He's going to answer you. He's going to meet your need exactly as you asked Him. Start expecting Him to do it.

Numbers 23:19> "God is not a man, that He should lie
I have heard many people say the expression "the man upstairs" but this passage of Scripture clearly tells us that God is not a man. John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." We must build a true relationship with the Father that we may know the attributes and characteristics of who He truly is, that we may truly worship Him in spirit and in truth just as the word instructs us and what He is truly deserving of.
