God Knows. . .When You Don't

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone who thought they “knew it all?” Perhaps you even referred to that person as a “know it all.”

Truth of the matter is. . .when we think we know it all. . .we haven’t even begun to tap into the wisdom and knowledge that’s available to us.

The scientist and science fiction writer, Isaac Asimov once said:

“People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.”

Now that’s funny.

Have there been times in your life. . .when you totally realized you didn’t “know it all?” In fact, you didn’t even know what to do next.

Seven Bad Things

Written by Harold Herring.

I got excited thinking about how we have four months remaining in 2019. That’s more than enough time to change the direction of our destiny.

Yes, it’s definitely turnaround time for each of us no matter where we are around the world.

We believe the next the next four months to be the most positive, successful, uplifting and inspirational days of your life.

So, you can imagine our surprise when we were led to teach seven bad things to not do in the remainder of this year or ever for that matter.

Please understand this is not a negative teaching but rather one that’s instructively providing a clear direction on what the Word says we should and shouldn’t be doing from this day forward.

Deuteronomy 4:40 in the Contemporary English Version says:

“Today I am explaining his laws and teachings. And if you always obey them, you and your descendants will live long and be successful in the land the LORD is giving you.”         

Getting Unanswered Prayers. . .Answered

Written by Harold Herring.

As my fine wife, Bev and I were in special prayer for our partners...God allowed us to see the intense spiritual battle faced by some our partners and His many children.

We felt the concern of His children over their prayers going seemingly unanswered.

You may have been praying for changes in your finances...a new job or a promotion...a healing for your body...turning lack into more than enough or overcoming addictions to alcohol, drugs or sin…but your answer hasn’t manifested…yet.

As we were praying. . .our attention was turned to Daniel 10:12-13 where He drew a direct parallel to what happened to Daniel and what may be happening to you.

“Then he said to me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.”

Here are seven keys to getting your prayers answered.

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!!!
