Possessing An Abundance Mentality

Written by Harold Herring.

“Brother Harold, there’s just no money available.  It seems if the windows of heaven have closed over us.”

You would be surprised and saddened by how many times I hear variations of that statement.

According to the FBI there is $1.4 trillion dollars in U.S. notes (paper money) in circulation.  If that cash were to be divided equally among the 322,762,018 people living in the United States each person would have an average of $4,337.56 in cash on hand (not counting what’s been stuffed in mattresses or other hiding places no one knows about.

The problem is not a shortage of money. . .we just need it to end up in the right hands.

Most Christians believe there is great insufficiency in the world …that they must live their lives in insufficiency.

Let me assure you God says, “There is more than enough.” In fact, He says, “The good life is your portion!”

Do you see how Satan is waging a battle in your mind, a battle of containment? It is hard for many to grasp just “having enough,” let alone seeing God wants you to have more than enough.

Remember, it is the world’s money managers that teach insufficiency, shortage, and want. They feel that’s the way to keep prices up, through contrived, manipulated shortage!

But we are not of this world, and our God and King declares that the basis of His Kingdom is abundance! John 10:10 in the King James Version plainly says:

7 Keys To The Good Life

Written by Harold Herring.

A few days ago I read an interesting quote by someone who said:

“I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life.”

I really like that quote, however, I would make a small, but significant change.

I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life because the Word of God says I can.

There’s no question God wants us to have the best life we can.  In fact, in this teaching you’ll hear over 20 scriptures where we’re told to experience the good life.

So what does it really mean to live the good life?

Does the good life consist of having the latest electronic toys and gadgets. . .traveling to exotic locations for lengthy vacations. . .living in the biggest house in the nicest neighborhood. . .being successful in business and in your investments?

7 Steps To Become A Conqueror

Written by Harold Herring.

We love reading.  That’s no surprise to those who know us.

I particularly enjoy reading quotes. . .as they most often provoke my thinking, stir my creativity while igniting my spirit.

I was reading about Virgil, the Roman poet, when I came across three amazing quotes he made about you.

Yes, YOU!!

I realize he’s been dead 2,035 years. . .but I’m absolutely confident he had you in mind when he came out with these three words of wisdom.

First, “They can because they think they can.”

Years ago, I cut the words “quit” “try” “compromise” and “can’t” out of my dictionary.  It was a symbolic gesture as I didn’t want these words to be a part of my vocabulary . . . especially the word “can’t.”

The word “can’t” when spoken by Christians in reference to God’s will for their lives is grammatically or spiritually inaccurate.  In fact, the word “can’t” is contrary to the Word and will of God.

Philippians 4:13 says:

7 Keys To Spiritual Boldness

Written by Harold Herring.

Would you like to have spiritual boldness?

You don’t need an expensive seminar or weekend conference to gain spiritual boldness.

There have been some good books written on developing boldness and confidence but the best advice on the subject. . .was written thousands of years ago.

Developing spiritual boldness is not an outside job. . .but rather. . .an inside work.

Ephesians 3:12 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).”

Our 24/7 access to our Heavenly Father. . .was made possible by the blood of Jesus on Calvary’s cross.

2 Corinthians 3:12 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

Clearing The Hurdles To Your Success

Written by Harold Herring.

If you watched any of the Olympic competition. . .perhaps you caught the  track and field events with the 100M and 400M hurdles. 

The runners sprint. . .clearing a number of hurdles. . .before sprinting again to the finish line. 

In other words. . .they face a number of hurdles or obstacles on their way to victory.

Everyday. . .you and I have hurdles. . .obstacles we have to overcome if we want to be successful in life and effective for the Kingdom.

Gail Devers, a three-time Olympic champion and member of the National Track and Filed Hall of Fame, said:

“In my race, there are 10 hurdles, but in life, there is always a hurdle. There is always something you gotta get over, and it's what you do, you know.”

Let’s look at seven hurdles you have to clear to gain the victory in life.

Why Giving Is Important To God

Written by Harold Herring.

Giving is important to God. . .that’s why it should be important to us.

In fact, God sets giving apart from going to church. . .praying. . .even living a righteous life.

Genesis 8:22 in the King James Version says:

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

As long as the earth exists there will be temperature changes. . .cold and heat which establish the seasons of the year.

God is clearly saying that day and night. . .a separation of time will exist as long as the earth remainsA time for working and a time for resting.

These are things that are so integral to our daily lives that to doubt their probability would be ridiculous. 

Yet, it is interesting to note that the very first thing listed in Genesis 8:22 is sowing and reaping.
