Why You Will Never Be Broke Or A Failure!

Written by Harold Herring.

Let’s establish a couple of facts.

First, no matter how anemic your bank account may be. . .you’re not broke.

Second, even though your money may run out before the month does. . .you’re not broke.

Before going any further. . .let’s define the word broke which according to dictionary.com it means: “without money, penniless.”

I know people who have a six-figure income who talk about how broke they are.

And by the same token, I hear from people receiving government assistance talking about how broke they are.

If you’ve ever said that or felt that way , let’s figure out why and eliminate it from your life.

Let’s start with several questions.   

Discovering God's Plans For Your Life

Written by Harold Herring.

Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 in the Message Bible says:

After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot.

“Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work.

It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. . .”

Reading and re-reading theses verse again. . .we knew God was giving us a powerful revelation we were to share with His children.

Here are seven questions to help us discover God’s plans for us.

1.  Where do you want to go?

The key to success is to determine why you are where you are. . .where God wants you to be. . .create a plan to get there. . .and start where you are with what you’ve got.

Hosea 14:9 in the Message Bible says:

Seven Ways To Steal His Power From You

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!!!

Romans 15:13 in the Amplified Bible says:

“May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”

The experience. . .the exercising of our faith unleashes the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 3:20 in the Amplified Bible says:

Seven Things To Set You Free From Fear

Written by Harold Herring.

This past July 4th. . .we paused to celebrate our freedom. . .from tyranny.

Yet, way too many believers are living under tyranny. . .not from another country or a government but from the enemy of your destiny. . .the devil.

Let’s talk about how to become free from all that would have us bound.

Galatians 5:13 says:

“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”

In the New International Version the word free and freedom are given the same definition as liberty.

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.”

We were called to be free.  The truth is that you and I will never really be free until we’re financially free.

What is your definition of freedom. . .or liberty?

According to dictionary.com freedom is defined as:

exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.”

What Sickness Steals From You

Written by Harold Herring.

Sickness is evil. . .it is not of God.

We never see God introduce it in the Bible.  We only see it show up after Satan comes into the picture.

Though there are some well-meaning Christians who feel it’s a cross God wants us to bear. 

Not so.  Absolutely, scripturally speaking. . .there is nothing to back up the claim.

The only things we see come from God are good gifts. . .advantageous gifts.

James 1:17 says:

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

According to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for good is G18 and it means:

“of good constitution or nature; useful, salutary; good, pleasant, agreeable, joyful, happy, excellent, distinguished”

Also, according to Strong’s Concordance the Greek word for gift is G1394 and it means:

“giving, gift”

Do we really think our Heavenly Father would consider cancer to be a useful, good, pleasant, joyful, happy, excellent gift for us?

This Is Your Winning Idea

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. . .raised your hand.

Yes, I know we can’t see you but. . .God can.

And He’s the One that 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.
