7 Talking Points For Success In The Marketplace

Written by Harold Herring.

Ecclesiastes 3:22 in the Contemporary English Version says:

We were meant to enjoy our work, and that's the best thing we can do. We can never know the future.”

According to a recent Gallup workplace study over 70% of American employees DO NOT like their jobs. . .and that was before pandemic layoffs.   Not liking your job is not good or for that matter…scriptural.

If we settle for a job just to earn a paycheck. . .with the attitude of doing just enough to get by. . .we’ll never be happy in the job.

To me, it’s really simple. . .if you don’t like what you’re doing or where you’re working. . .stop complaining and do something about it.

Here are seven must-read talking points for your success in the workplace or marketplace.

Putting The Word To Work For You

Written by Harold Herring.

As we get ready to close out 2020, we need to get back to basics.  Most Christians know it but from time to time we need to be reminded of certain biblical principles.

This most basic one is not forgetting to put the Word of God to work in your life …daily.

“What happens to so many Christians is they pray a scripture over a problem... then they leave it alone…eventually giving up when nothing happens.  I feel the Holy Spirit showed me how to continually put pressure on that scripture expecting it to perform as God said it would...

Get mad at the devil... and REFUSE to let him have his way...why should he win?  He likes to make you think "you're the one doing something wrong" but if you KNOW the Word works... you can literally force the enemy or circumstances to step aside!  He has to obey you!

We were prompted to write seven ways to put the Word to work in your life on a daily basis.

1.         Quit doing what you’ve been doing if it’s not working.

Judges 6:1 in the New International Version says:

Developing A Successful Mindset

Written by Harold Herring.

Our goal is to always be a learner.  We want to receive something from everything we read.

We take notes on what we’ve read that we feel God wants us to make applicable to our lives or often share with others like you.

Your mindset is simply a collection of the dominant thoughts in your life.

Proverbs 4:23 in the New Century Version says:

"Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life."

If you want to be successful. . .spiritually and professionally. . .you need to learn how to collect, assimilate, activate and utilize the dominant thoughts in your life.

7 Must Know Facts About Giving

Written by Harold Herring.

I’ve been teaching people how to get out of debt for almost 30 years.  I was doing so before it was cool, fashionable or even profitable.

Over the years, I have resisted the temptation to align myself with financial planners, insurance agents, real estate brokers and others in the financial professions to make money off referrals from those who follow this ministry.  I have at times recommended them as good … but never for a profit.

The Bible is an instruction manual for success. . .revealing how-to walk-in God’s blessing flow and experience the good life He envisions for us.  It’s all in the Word.

God’s instructions are not situational. . .they don’t vary based on current economic conditions, which party is in power, your personal circumstances or  unrest anywhere in the world.  The principles in His Word are clear and absolute.  This is important to know … now more than ever.

Be The Leader You Were Meant To Be

Written by Bev Herring.

Harold wanted me to share a story with you about waking up on election day knowing God wanted him to pray.  He stated:

“As I prayed...God stirred in my imagination what would happen if someone were to die today before the election results were known.”

“As the person entered heaven...God allowed me to see this person asking Him ‘who won the election.’ To which, God boldly replied, ‘I did.’"

"The people whose candidate lost...prayed to me for the safety and protection of the country from the things they don’t agree with.

"The people whose candidate won...praised me for his victory and the next four years.

"In both cases...I WIN....because the people prayed."

Over the last many years of ministry, Harold has written over 90 blogs and television programs on leadership.  I, in turn, am an editor so I take and tweak what he’s written and we at times discuss the blogs and scriptures together.

You would think we’d have covered the bases on the do’s and don’ts of being a leader.  Until God allowed us to see something in a way that we’ve never seen it before.

Are You Ready For What's Coming?

Written by Bev Herring.

In 2 Timothy 3:1-4 it states:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God….”

And Timothy goes on to list more of the problems of his times … which we can all pretty much agree … are the problems of our times at well.

When we became born again believers we were called to Kingdom business. 

We may or may not be looking the end of the world in the face but that essentially doesn’t matter because no matter how much longer the earth remains… we have all been called to do Kingdom business. 

What we are doing in the here and now will be what we are judged for in the by and by.  And the by and by is going to come sooner or later for all of us.

I’m pretty sure that as Nazi Germany was attacking countries and gathering Jews across Europe, they felt this had to be the end of the world. It certainly looked like the end of theirs. 

It is said that 6 million people were annihilated in Poland alone, one of the few countries that had always been open to the Jewish population.  I might add it is said 3 of the 6 million who died were Christians trying to protect the Jews but that is often forgotten or put in the last sentence of the article.

Jesus’ disciples felt the end was imminent.

The years surrounding the year 1000 were filled with predictions about the imminent return of Christ - to the point where Christians didn’t plant crops for the next year, buildings weren’t repaired and the details of daily life were ignored.
