7 Things To Hold On To And Not Misplace

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever misplaced something you not only wanted to find . . . but you had to find.

Perhaps, it was your car or house keys. . .an important document for work or some back-up files for your taxes.

After some time passed and more mental anguish than you care to admit … you finally found the misplaced items.

A precious, close friend of ours, Pastor Malc Burton, sometime back sent me the following text.

“Good morning, Pastor. Read Psalm 62:5 when you get a moment. God stirred me this morning about misplaced expectation and misplaced trust. Love you.”

Pastor Malc is full of revelatory insight. He has ghost written over 100 books for many well-known Christian leaders. . .names you would immediately recognize.

As I read Pastor Malc’s text I was stirred as well. Even before reading his scripture. . .I felt impressed to write things never to misplace.

7 Keys To God's Plans For You

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever been late to an appointment or perhaps you overlooked one altogether?

I know people who have lost their jobs. . .or didn’t get a new job because they were late on an appointment.

When you’re going to meet your children or grandchildren’s teacher for the first time. . .that’s not a good time to be late for an appointment.

Of every appointment you’ve ever had. . .there is one appointment you are not going to want to miss.

God scheduled this appointment for you before you were ever born. It’s a part of your destiny. . .His purpose and plans for your life.

Let’s talk about two scriptures in Jeremiah.

7 Ways To Avoid Fear In Uncertain Times

Written by Harold Herring.

Let’s establish an immutable fact. . .I am not a gloom and doom kind of guy.

If you want somebody who’s going to tell you the world is going to hell in a hand basket . . .you’ve got the wrong preacher. . .in fact, the wrong couple.

If you want someone who’s trying to connect all the dots and dates from Daniel and Revelation to prove it’s the end of days. . .you’ve got the wrong man.

Personally, I haven’t spent one minute in the past twenty years wondering or worrying about who the anti-Christ is.

Nor have I spent time fretting over the coronavirus because all that is covered in Psalm 91 which we are about to discuss as well as several other verses in God’s Word.

Are their injustices that need to be corrected. . .of course. . .absolutely. We don’t live in a perfect country. . .for that fact, we live in a far from perfect world. . .but, if this country is so bad. . .why do so many people from other nations want to come here, even if they have to do it. . .illegally.

So in the midst of the turmoil, controversy and dare I say, hatred, we have an amazing amount of surpassing promises we can count on from our God.

And if you don’t get anything else from this teaching tonight, you need to settle it in your mind, spirit and emotions …that at no point in time … EVER … has God started wringing His hands in heaven saying “Wow, I didn’t know this was going to happen.” NEVER HAS HAPPENED –NEVER WILL.

But truthfully, I was a bit surprised when God directed me to write “7 Ways To Avoid Fear In Uncertain Times.”

When Trouble Strikes...You Have The Answer

Written by Harold Herring.

If you're drawing breath on planet earth...there will come moments...times of adversity when you wonder what to do next.

In these moments...your solace will not be found at the local watering hole commiserating with someone as lost as a goose in a blizzard.

Your answer will not be found in extended conversations with friends about why it's unfair you have to deal with these situations.

Just remember when trouble strikes...you have the answer.

Here are seven keys for you to mediate on.

1.         When you’re disappointed

Here’s the great news. . .regardless of the intensity of the enemy’s attack. . .you never need to be put to shame or disappointed.

I realize that’s a bold statement. . . but there are eight verses in the Classic Amplified Bible translation which say exactly that. Here are three of them to claim and put your confidence in.

Psalm 25:3 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

7 Necessary Qualities Of A Winner In Life

Written by Harold Herring.

One of the primary keys to success in life is. . .drum roll. . .persistence. We must learn to keep on keeping on until we cross the finish line.

Perseverance is in the New Testament 32 times and its most frequently translated as:

“patience; endurance; patient waiting”

The term literally means “remaining under” or standing firm despite opposition.

In life, we will face many challenges. . .and adversities.

Human nature will want you to rationalize that other people seem to have it easier than we do. . .and in some cases, that may be right.

But the Bible says that joy is not based on an absence of difficulty but on discovering your gifts and developing them for the benefit of the Kingdom of God.

Booker T. Washington once said:

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”

Sir Winston Churchill once said:

When And Where Do Miracles Manifest

Written by Harold Herring.

Before we get into this teaching. . .we think you may need 2 Timothy 2:7 in the Classic Amplified Bible as a spiritual appetizer.

2 Timothy 2:7 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

“Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything.”

Our prayer as you read this teaching is for you to have His insight and understanding on the revelation were about to share.

Did you know there are seven traditional names of Jehovah? Most people can quote the names and tell you what they mean.

There is Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah- nissi, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Ra’ah, Jehovah Tsidkenu and Jehovah Shamma.

We have been taught that these are the seven names of God. We even have songs about them but the truth is only three of these are actual names of Jehovah.

Jehovah Rapha is a name we find in Exodus 15:26 where God says:
