Defeat Your Giants In 15 Seconds

Written by Harold Herring.

The story of David and Goliath is probably the favorite story of most all children. . .I know it was mine.

The giants that you and I face define our identity and establish our reality.  The giants we face and defeat outline the places and spaces where we’ve chosen to live.

The giants in our lives. . .are determined to keep us out of our promised land where the promises of God are manifested.

By the way, you’re in your promised land. . .right now. . .the question is whether or not you are embracing His promises to make it a land flowing with milk and honey. . .abundance and success.

Our ability to face and defeat our giants. . .will determine the extent of the success we achieve.

Slaying our giants will move us from a life of mediocrity to unlimited success.  And, yes, from fear to freedom.

While our giants aren’t usually physical but more spiritual, they are nevertheless foreboding and at times, terrifying.

It’s not unusual for us to wage an internal mental war on when and how to face our giants.

Seven Confessions For Seven Days

Written by Harold Herring.

Several weeks back, I was directed by our Heavenly Father share something very bold with you. 

He said: 

“Tell my children that just saying Happy New Year or singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight on New Year’s Eve will not make 2023 a better year but I can make it so.”

Then Lord told me. . .He wants you to develop a clear vision for success, prosperity and healing.  Next, He gave me very specific instructions on what He wants us to speak as we greet the new year.

Change is not a function of a calendar, but it is a personal decision for us to change what we’re thinking, saying and doing.

The Lord gave me five instructions for each of us and then He led me in writing seven confessions for each of the first seven days in the New Year.  Here are the instructions.

# 1    Start the year differently than you ever have before.

Don’t do what you’ve always done.

If you’ve always made New Year’s resolutions on losing weight, exercising more, getting your personal finances in order. . .only to have your good intentions fade with the passing of each new day, get ready for something new. . .that will not fade but grow stronger every day.

Revelation 21:5 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).”

# 2    Set a specific time to boldly proclaim your confessions each day.

Fear Is A Hindrance To Success

Written by Harold Herring.

If it’s God’s will to give us the kingdom, then why are so many people struggling?

Here are five hindrances to your success and receiving a surplus of prosperity.

Fear. . .of the unknown.  Fear of failure.

Doubt. . .that God will do what He says He will do in His word.

Anxiety. . .over the current economic, viruses and political landscape.

Hesitation. . .to give what God says to give because of our perceived limitations and lack.

Disbelief. . .over whether everything promised in the Bible applies to “me.”

Notice the progression of the five hindrances. . .one builds upon the next one.

Debt Determines Your Environment

Written by Harold Herring.

Years ago, I was praying during a church service at The Wisdom Center in Fort Worth, Texas when the Spirit of the Lord stirred four words in my spirit.  He said:

“Debt Determines Your Environment.”

I knew that was a profound statement. . .with life-changing implications and it was. It later became a book I wrote.

According to the word environment is defined as:

“the aggregate [or the total] of surrounding things, conditions, or influences; surroundings; the social and cultural forces that shape the life of a person or a population.”

Does debt influence you or your surroundings?  Absolutely.

7 Things Better Than iPad, iPhone, iToys

Written by Harold Herring.

This is the time of year for Christmas lists…from the youngest family member to the oldest.

As our family members grow in age. . .so do the price of their toys.

Dale Evans, wife of Roger Rogers, my childhood heroes once said:

“Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.”

Roy L. Smith, a renowned Methodist writer of Sunday School literature, once said:

“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”

During this season. . .we want to share with you seven things better than the new iPhone, iPad, iPod or any other iToys produced by competing companies.

And just for the record, I’m not talking about the battle of electronics. . .so I’m not referring to Android, Galaxy or Tablet gadgets.

Here’s my list of the seven things better than iPads, iPhones, iPods and iToys.
