7 Keys To Release The Power In Your Hands

Written by Harold Herring.

Hold your hands up. . .what do you see?

Something to cover your mouth when you yawn. . .something to eat with. . .something to comb your hair with. . .something to help you work . . .something to help you play.

When God looks at your hands, He sees unlimited potential for blessings, miracles, and prosperity.  We already have that authority as believers!

John 3:35 says:

“The Father loved the son and placed everything in his hands.”

When the soldiers came to take Jesus captive in the Garden of Gethsemane, the first thing they did was to bind his hands.  Why?

. . .those hands had made mud, placed it on the eyes of a blind man that allowed him to see instantly.

. . .those hands took the five loaves and two fishes from a young man and fed thousands of people.

. . .those hands had been laid upon a great host of people who found His healing touch brought instant relief to their sick and suffering bodies.

. . .those hands  stopped a funeral procession. . .touched the body of a young boy and gave his mother great joy and him a new life.

. . .those hands had resurrection power -- but so do yours.

7 Keys To Becoming A Rich Thinker

Written by Harold Herring.

If you want things to be different in your life. . .the number one thing you need to change is not your job, circumstances, environment, relationships or income. . .it’s you.

You must first change the way you think. . .which means changing your attitude. 

Romans 12:2 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”

Change is a door than can only be opened from the inside.

When you begin to feed on the Word of God on a regular basis. . .your thought processes begin to change. . .then your attitude begins to change.

Your attitude is determined by the collection of the dominant thoughts in your mind.  So in determining the proper kind of attitude for change. . .we must look at Philippians 2:5 in the New Living Translation which says:

Get Free From These 7 Things

Written by Harold Herring.

July 4th is not just another holiday.

It's much more than a trip to the beach, lake or pool.  It's much more than a picnic in the park or backyard.  This holiday is more than oohing and awing at fireworks displays.

July 4th is about freedom and liberty won and maintained through great personal sacrifice, commitment and faith.

Our independence was won by those who were willing to pay the ultimate price so that you and I could enjoy a holiday such as this.

George Washington said:

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

The following is a great story about General Washington’s faith in God.

During the dark days of the American Revolution, when the Continental Army had experienced several setbacks, a farmer who lived near the battlefield approached Washington’s camp unheard.

Stretch Out Your Hand

Written by Harold Herring.

Our faith is under attack.

This is not really a new thing.

But. . .HALLELUJAH. . .these attacks cannot stop the power of God.

But the work of God is done on earth through believing faith.

Attacks come to hinder our faith by breaking our focus. . .with the purpose of  trying to keep the plan of God from manifesting in our lives.

Mark 3:1 in the New King James Version says:

“And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand.”

This is one of my favorite stories in scripture.

The man was positioned to receive alms. . .to put bread on his table for a day.  But on this particular day. . .he was positioned for a miracle.

Our God is a deliverer Who does not like to see His children hurting.

7 Things I Learned From My Father

Written by Harold Herring.

Mark Twain, the American humorist said:

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”

While I was in college, I was asked to write a paper about the greatest man I’d ever met or read about.  It was an easy and immediate decision. . .I wrote it about my Dad.

I often think about the character qualities I learned from my father that would benefit others.

Proverbs 20:7 in the Amplified Bible says:

“The righteous man walks in his integrity; blessed (happy, fortunate, enviable) are his children after him.”

There are seven character qualities of a Godly father that I want to share with you today. . .based on the life of James Harold Herring, Sr., my father.

First, everybody was worthy of respect.

7 Reasons You're Neither Broke Nor A Failure

Written by Harold Herring.

Let’s establish a couple of facts.

First, no matter how anemic your bank account may be. . .you’re not broke.

Second, even though your money may run out before the month does. . .you’re not broke.

Before going any further. . .let’s define the word broke which according to dictionary.com means:  “without money, penniless.”

I know people who have a six-figure income who talk about how broke they are.

And by the same token, I hear from people receiving government assistance talking about how broke they are.

In our effort to figure out why some people feel like they are broke. . .let me ask you several questions.

Are you spending more money than what you’ve got?

Are you living today off money you expect to receive tomorrow?

Are you spending money you don’t have to compensate for stress in some other area of your life. . .such as a hurting marriage, troubled or chronically-ill children or a difficult work situation?

Are you a victim of Parkinson’s Law?  Parkinson’s Law says that expenses will always rise to meet income.
