Never give up on what you know you really should do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts. Remember overnight success takes about ten years. The "man of the hour" spent many days and nights getting there. Consider the man who said "My overnight success was the longest night of my life." Winners simply do what losers don't want to do.

In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins - not through strength but perseverance. Christopher Morley says, "Big shots are only little shots that keep shooting".

Judas was an example of someone who began the good fight but lacked persistence. Many of the world's great failures did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. Stopping at third base adds no more score than striking out.

"You have no right to anything you have not pursued. For the proof of desire is in the pursuit", says Mike Murdock.

Enduring is a military term meaning to hold up courageously under fire. When you feel like quitting, bring more of God into that area of your life.

Proverbs 16:3 NIV says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."

There is no greater wealth than the wealth of commitment. It cannot be robbed from you.

Trying times are no time to quit trying. The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.

In the Book of Revelation, the Bible describes golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 5:8). In other words, the prayers of God's people collectively fill heavenly bowls with sweet aroma, much like the burnt offerings did in days of old. In Revelation 8, we discover what these bowls are used for:
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter w…
