1. Serving God through thick and thin makes you a great person. (Luke 22:24, 28-29)
2. You cannot live by faith without the power of your imagination. (Heb 11:1-2)
3. It is an aberration for you to be diligent at your place of worship and not being diligent at your place of work and still expect God to bless you at your place of work. (Prov 13:4)
4. You are not defeated because you fall/fail but because you refused to pick yourself up and continue your goal or race.
5. Preparation of man must precede the visitation of God.
If you want God to visit you, get ready for Him. Be ready in purity of heart and holiness. Isaiah 40:3
