He stressed the importance of maintaining a right standing with God (Ezekiel 26:13, Genesis 38:1-9, 1 Samuel 7:2-3, 2 Samuel 6:11) and investing time in praise (Psalm 119:164).

“Praise that brings His presence costs you time,” he remarked, encouraging believers to prioritize spending time in praise to expedite divine blessings.
