7 Reasons The Ungodly Prosper

Written by Harold Herring.

It’s time for everyone to be totally honest.

Have you ever driven along the highway and seen other people drive by in cars much newer or nicer than yours?  Did you wonder why they have a new car when you’re driving a refuge from the salvage yard?

Have you ever ridden through a neighborhood and wondered who owns the expensive houses with the neatly manicured lawns?  Did you ever wonder how they could afford such a place. . .with the nice cars sitting in the driveway?

Have you ever wondered why some of the most ungodly people in your office dress in ways you can’t afford?

And, yes, have you ever asked God why it seems that ungodly people prosper while many of God’s children struggle to just get by?

Be honest. . .now.  Truthfully, there have been times in the past when I wondered about those things.  I think that’s why I was led to write “Seven Reasons The Ungodly Prosper.”

4 Keys To Victory

By Bev Herring

Recently some scriptures stirred my spirit to think beyond my imagination as my husband likes to say.

Have you noticed when writers of the New Testament authors like Peter or Paul or John begin to make a point in scripture they give us information but we pass over it because it is not a part of the point they are making?  

In the very opening of 1 Peter 2:11 in the New King James Version Peter puts these words:

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims….”

God’s Word Translation of that same verse says: “Dear friends, since you are foreigners and temporary residents in the world….”

I get over 200 emails a day and that doesn’t count forwarded email . . .which as a rule I don’t open unless it’s from a CLOSE personal friend.  But recently, I came across a piece of forwarded mail from an anonymous author which stirred my faith…so I’ve decided to share it with you.

It’s not a question of if. . .but when.

“Then he continued, “Be strong and courageous and get to work. Don’t be frightened by the size of the task, for the Lord my God is with you; he will not forsake you. He will see to it that everything is finished correctly."

In this powerful verse. . .we find seven reasons what you’re believing for. . .is going to happen.

12 Reasons It Pays To Be Generous

Written by Harold Herring.

There are just some things in life that you don’t or can’t understand with a natural mind.

For instance, I don’t really understand why a black and white cow can eat green grass give yellow butter and white milk.

There are things people in the world, and even some Christians, don’t or can’t understand about the things of God.  However, our lack of understanding doesn’t make them any less true.
