Building A Tabernacle Of Prayer For You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

“Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year for you.”
Exodus 40:2 (NLT; personalized)
 
In a very special moment. . .God directed my fine wife Bev and I to establish a tabernacle of prayer on New Year’s Day for you and other partners of this ministry.
 
I firmly believe that Exodus 40:2 is meant to open a door of abundance for you in 2015.  That’s why I am sending you this email.  Please let us have your specific prayer requests. (See Philippians 4:6).
 
Even though I may not be with you personally. . .God very clearly and directly told me how I was to build a tabernacle of prayer for you on New Year’s Day.

Are You One Of The 24 Prayer Elders?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

Below is the text form a special email I sent this morning concerning 24 hours of Prayer on January 24th. I have also included the audio from my RichThoughts for Breakfast call from January 21st: Are You One of the 24? Audio.

It was 1:45 AM when I awakened from a deep sleep ... and “Day Of Prayer” was stirring in my spirit.

My first thought was God was directing me to build another Tabernacle of Prayer as I did on January 1, 2010 ... but He allowed me to drift back off to sleep without fully getting His instructions as to what He wanted me to do.

7 Reasons Poverty Is Nothing But Trouble

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

It just doesn’t make any sense.

Over the years, I’ve heard a number of people say that poverty is holy.

These people have given poverty a spiritual badge of honor.  They said that prosperity is evil. . .which, by the way, is an unscriptural statement since God delights in the prosperity of His children.

Psalm 35:27 says:

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

Despite this and other scriptures to the contrary. . .there are some who have made poverty an acceptable lifestyle.

Wow! No other word seems appropriate in describing our Financial Deliverance Conference at Revival Center for the Nations in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

The last night of the conference (Sunday, Jun 24th) was the most amazing meeting that I've ever been in. It started at 8 PM and ended after midnight. I believe these photographs tell the story. Thank you for your support of this trip and the ministry.

Practice Creating Opportunities

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever said or heard someone say, “I’m just waiting for the right opportunity.”

Before you can ever really have an opportunity you must know where it comes from.

2 Corinthians 2:12 in The Living Bible says:

“Well, when I got as far as the city of Troas, the Lord gave me tremendous opportunities to preach the Gospel.”

God wants us to use all the little opportunities we have. . .RIGHT NOW.

1 Corinthians 7:31 in The Living Bible says:

“Those in frequent contact with the exciting things the world offers should make good use of their opportunities without stopping to enjoy them; for the world in its present form will soon be gone.”

Have you thought about why God gives you opportunities?

7 Reasons Your Lot In Life Is More Than You Think

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Brother Kenneth Hagin, in talking about believers, once said:

“Bless their darling hearts and stupid heads.”

Sometimes I’m amazed at what comes out of the mouths of Christians.

I’m talking about people who love God with all their hearts. People who are in church every time the doors are open. People who will no doubt go to heaven.

But sometimes they say things that are not smart and they don’t even realize it . . .spiritually speaking, of course.

For instance. . .

“Well, I can’t do anything about my situation. . .it’s just the way things are.”

When I hear that statement. . .I wanted to shout out.

“Don’t say that!”

Things God Will Never Do With Money

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

It’s time for true confessions.

There was a time when our personal finances were a mess. We were drowning in a sea of debt, late fees and overdraft charges. I was robbing Peter to pay Paul. In fact, I was also hitting up Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Even though I had read dozens of books on motivation and success…and even personal finances, I obviously didn’t know how to put this information to work. Something was going to have to change or I was going to struggle forever.

The “aha” moment finally came when I met Brother John Avanzini whose teaching turned our financial lives around. The thing I finally figured out was that wealth has as much or more to do with obedience to God as it does with math.

And by the way, our problems were not caused by my fine wife, Bev. . .but me.

After my “aha” moment I began Understanding What God Says About Money.

I found that changing my mindset about money to embrace God’s principles actually opened the windows of heaven on my behalf and then God honored my willingness to walk in obedience.

God wants you to live well! As your Heavenly father, God’s desire is to see you healthy and wealthy in every way.

Make The Rest Of Your Life...The Best Of Your Life

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever read a quote by someone that just ignited in your spirit. I read it this morning and it was a quote by Anonymous that fired me up. Here it is:

“I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life.”

I really like that quote, however, I would make a small, but significant change.

I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life because the Word of God says I can!

There’s no question God wants us to have the best life we can. In fact, in this teaching you’ll read 40 scriptures where we’re told to and how to experience the good life.

So what does it really mean to live the good life?

7 Things God Wants You To Excel At

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

There are two things I know for sure.

First, God believes in success not mediocrity.

Deuteronomy 30:9 in the New Century Version says:

“. . . “The Lord your God will make you successful in everything you do.”

Joshua 1:7 in the New Century Version says:

“Be strong and brave. Be sure to obey all the teachings my servant Moses gave you. If you follow them exactly, you will be successful in everything you do.”

Did you notice that in both of the verses there is one phrase that it common in both?

The scriptures say you will be successful in everything you do.”

God doesn’t want you successful in some things. . .He wants you successful in everything you do.

Mediocrity is a choice. . .it is either a conscious choice or a subconscious choice. The fruit of a lack of effort to be successful is mediocrity.

When we either choose or accept mediocrity. . .it’s because we have not done what is necessary to succeed.
