"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. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." Colossians 3:1-3 (NKJV)
when you go through times of affliction and waiting, when you feel that you are in an impossible situation. It is just something God is using to teach you to walk by faith and not by sight and believe in the power of prayer.
