How To Know You've Got A Winner

Written by Harold Herring.

Eleanor Roosevelt, former First Lady, once said:

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and small minds discuss people.”

If you’ve got a great mind. . .focused on ideas. . .say “I do.”

Yes, I know we can't see you reading this blog. . .but God can. And He's the One who counts.

People who think about and act on ideas. . .are the ones who become winners in life.

Henry Ward Beecher once said:

“The ability to convert ideas to things is the secret of outward success.”

Some years ago, I read where ideas go through three stages.

First, it can’t be done.

Second, it might can be done but it’s not worth doing.

Third, I knew it was a good idea all along.

How Does God See You?

Written by Harold Herring.

How do you see yourself?

Wait. . .don’t answer that.

Too many people, especially Christians get down on themselves because they’re not looking at themselves through the mirror of God.

We don’t generally see ourselves the way He sees us.

We should never let our friends, relatives or society label us. . .instead we need to find out what the Word of God says about us.

Let’s talk about how God sees you. And then believe He means what He says.

1 Peter 2:9-10 in the Amplified Bible says:

“But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himselfyou are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God’s very own—all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were less than nothing; now you are God’s own. Once you knew very little of God’s kindness; now your very lives have been changed by it.”

First, you have been chosen by God Himself.

Stop the Scriptural Power Drain

Written by Harold Herring.

“The greatest achievement of the enemy is not an active sinner but an inactive Christian unaware of the power available to them.”

I recently posted that statement on Facebook and Twitter….it generated a lot of likes, retweets and shares.

There are some believers. . .I choose not to say many believers. . .who continually wonder why they are not walking in the prosperity and success promised in the Bible. Truthfully, it’s because they do not understand or fully utilize the power of God available to and through them in their daily lives.

How do we walk in the power, success and prosperity of God? It all begins with faith.

The next three scriptures are going to make you SHOUT!!!

7 Ways To Have Favor With God

Written by Harold Herring.

God is continually looking for people “whose heart is loyal to Him.”

Is God looking for you? I believe He is.

2 Chronicles 16:9 says:

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.. . .”

God is not just sitting back in heaven. . .watching the New York Yankees play baseball. . .He’s continually looking for someone. . .searching the whole world over.

Why is He looking for the right people?

Does He have a job for them?   Not necessarily.

Does He want them to work in foreign missions or pioneer a new church? No, not necessarily.

Why is God. . .looking for you.

Breakthrough Your Comfort Zone

Written by Harold Herring.

“You just don’t know what I have to deal with.”

"Nobody knows how unfairly I'm treated at work."

Reminds me of a country and western song.

“Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.”

And if you want things to get better than they’ve been. . .you need to stop talking about it. . .rehearsing your hurts. . .leave the past in the past and move on up.

We need to get a grip on what’s been holding us back from achieving what God created and endowed us to do. . .and from fulfilling His vision for our lives in 2019.  It’s time to breakthrough our comfort zone and the things that have been holding us back.

Here are seven ways to do just that.

Change Your Destiny. . .Today

Written by Harold Herring.

Do you need things to change in your life?

On your job. . .in your family. . .and most importantly, in your own life.

We have a revelation for you. . .nobody can change your life for you. It must be an inner work initiated by you.

My Mom prayed for me to be saved but I’m the one who had to walk the aisle to the front of the church.

Later, she prayed for me to have a deeper relationship with God. . .but I’m the one who had to decide to pursue God in earnest.

Don’t get me wrong I believe the prayer of the saints can softened hearts and position people for personal breakthroughs.

But everyone must become their own agent of change.

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the author of The Power Of Positive Thinking, once said:
