When you read this. . .you’ll go. . .WOW.

7 Keys To Immediate Financial Success

Written by Harold Herring.

I just love the unction of the Holy Spirit. . .how He corrects and directs at the same time.  I even have to smile at how He does it. . .in ways you least expect it.

Recently, I was reading a book. . .which I wouldn't recommend for everybody. . .that's why I'm not giving you the title.

This particular author listed three reasons he thinks people are unsuccessful.  He said people are:   # 1 lazy, # 2 stupid and # 3 they don't give a . . . . well you know that means something I’d never say.

As I read what he wrote. . .I thought. . .I'll write the seven reasons people are unsuccessful.  Suddenly, the Spirit of the Lord said: "No."

Instead, I was very clearly directed to write the "Seven Keys To Your Immediate Financial Success.  Now that's what I've done and here are the seven keys.

1.       You gotta have the right attitude about whatever you’re facing.

The measure of any person. . .Christian or heathen. . .is determined by how they respond to adversity.

A negative attitude and/or response will eventually result in failure.

A positive attitude and/or response situations will ultimately lead to success.

Failure is almost always a result of our attitude or response to unfavorable circumstances.

7 Reasons To Do Your Best

Written by Harold Herring.

Wednesday, May 17th is the 137th day of 2017.

Question?  Where are you on achieving your goals and plans for this year?

Are you where you thought you'd be?  Are you where you want to be?

As I was praying for prayer requests of our ministry. . .I felt the Lord saying to me.

"Ask my children. . .if they've done their best?"

Truthfully, God already knows whether or not you've done your best.

We can fool our spouse, parents, children, employer, best friend and even our pastor but we cannot. . .let me say that again. . .we cannot fool God.

As I meditated on the matter. . .I felt led to share. . .seven reasons to do your best.

I felt promoted to look up best at dictionary.com where it is defined as:

“Of the highest quality, excellence, or standing; something or someone that is best.”

Without question, our Heavenly Father, in His compassion for us. . .gave someone of the “highest quality, excellence and standing”. . .He gave His best. . .His only begotten Son so that you and I might have life and might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

Answers In The Midst Of A Storm

Written by Harold Herring.

One of my favorite Bible stories growing up was about Jonah and the whale.

Jonah was an eighth-century prophet to the northern kingdom of Israel.

God directed Jonah to Nineveh where he was to preach repentance to the Assyrians who were meaner than a junk yard dog.  The Assyrians were evil, cruel, heartless, evil and idolatrous, and yes, I did say evil twice.

Jonah didn’t want to preach repentance to the Assyrians. . .he wanted them wiped off the face of the earth.  He wanted the people of Nineveh to have a Sodom and Gomorrah experience.

Needless to say, Jonah wasn’t too happy about them having the opportunity to miss hell.  The scripture really doesn’t say why Jonah hated the Assyrians so. . .but he did.

Jonah was a prophet. . .but he kinda missed it. . .when it came to foretelling what was in his future.

His hatred must have been intense because he refused the assignment to Nineveh and caught the first boat out of town..

Once again, what kind of prophet thinks you can refuse to do what God says or that you can run away where He won’t find you.

Jonah bought passage on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship to Tarshish.

Jonah 1:3 in the Amplified Bible says:

Tricks The Enemy Uses Against You

Written by Harold Herring.

One of the favorite tactics of the enemy is to create an illusion which makes you think that the problems you encounter are unique to you. . .that no one else has to face what you face.

Not true.  First, let’s establish three facts.

First, the devil is a defeated foe.

John 12:31 in the Amplified Bible says:

“Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled).”

John 16:11 in the Amplified Bible says:

“About judgment, because the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world [Satan] is judged and condemned and sentence already is passed upon him.”

Second, the devil is a liar.

John 8:44 in the Amplified Bible says:

Eliminate The Negative. . .Accentuate The Positive

Written by Harold Herring.

Good evening and welcome to SUNDAY NITE LIVE. 

I’m Harold Herring and that’s my fine wife, Bev.

If you’re hearing our voices…chances are you’ve been the brunt of someone’s negative observations or rants in days gone by.

Perhaps you’ve even been a bit negative yourself.   No worry your secret is safe with me.  Besides you’ve probably already repented for being a nattering nabob of negativism.

I’ve been shown seven habits or behavior patterns which should not be a part of your life. . .if you want to maximize your potential and productivity for the Kingdom of God.

# 1     Stop rationalizing temper tantrums.

Have you ever heard someone justify pitching a fit (I believe that more accurately describes temper tantrum) by saying. . .

“I’ve always had a temper.  I got it from my Dad.  It’s just the way I am.”

Throwing a temper tantrum is the what you do. . .because you’ve been unwilling to change your behavior patterns and take control of your emotions.

Some folks blame their genes. . .claiming their temper tantrum is hereditary.  That excuse might have worked when you were two or three. . .but not as an adult.

Proverbs 14:17 says:
