9 Things I Learned From A Sick Woman

Written by Harold Herring.

Knowledge surrounds us.  It’s at our fingertips.  I have a wonderful set of the Encyclopedia Britannica but my smart phone and other electronic toys makes the encyclopedias a relic of the past.

Each moment of our day holds the potential for learning.  But we must reach out to receive it.

Wisdom and knowledge are both at our finger tips but we overlook the value to settle for the mundane or the latest television program.

In fact, way too often we ignore the greatest source of wisdom the world has ever known for the ‘has been’ or ‘never will be’ options.

While wisdom and knowledge are everywhere. . .you can learn something from everybody.  In fact, I learned nine valuable lessons from a sick woman.

This lady’s story is in Mark 5 where it’s so clearly and intimately told that I feel as though I know her.  I even mentioned her last week when we were teaching on financial healing.

Here are nine things I learned from a sick lady.

1)            This Lady Needed A Miracle.

I Dare You Seven Ways

Written by Harold Herring.

When I was in high school. . .I was asked to speak at our local Rotary Club because I was actively involved in politics.

For those who are not familiar with the Rotary Club. . .it’s a service organization like the Lions, the Kiwanis, the Civitans, the Moose, Goose and got loose.  Just kidding about the last two.

Most of these service organizations meet once a week for lunch…hear a speaker and interact with each other.  Before social media…it was a great way to meet leaders in a local community and be involved in local projects.

My visit to the LaGrange, North Carolina Rotary Club was a wonderful experience.  I was given a book which I still have today. . .somewhere in my collection.

The title was I Dare You written by William H. Danforth of the Nestle Purina fortune.  It helped to stir me outside my comfort zone. . .long before I knew what a comfort zone was.

Turning Adversity And Anger Into Victory

Written by Harold Herring.

As I was writing this teaching. . .I had just prayed for nearly a thousand prayer requests.  People facing unknown transitions and often difficult choices.

Are you going through a transition yourself?

Perhaps you're going from one job to another … or from having a job to being unemployed?

Does it seem that you're facing difficult problems without any answer seemingly in sight?

If so, this teaching is for you.

My Valentine Day of Prayer

Written by Harold Herring.

Please don’t miss My Valentine Day of Prayer – this Sunday, February 14th

I sent the following letter by mail but I can’t take a chance that you might have missed it.  I need your response before Sunday …Valentine’s Day.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING carefully

and … respond immediately!

Do you need God’s IMMEDIATE attention?

As I was praying recently, I felt stirred in my spirit that you and several others need miracle-working power IMMEDIATELY. 

The Lord directed me to get this letter to you as quickly as possible.  It will only take you two or three minutes to read and respond. 

I believe you’ll find this is just the answer you’ve been praying for.  So find a quiet spot and let the truth of the Word ignite your spirit like it did mine.

7 Traits Of A Finisher

Written by Harold Herring.

 Have you ever started a project, assignment or job with a sudden burst of enthusiasm only to be slowed down by the first obstacle and stopped short of your goal by continual obstacles?

Congratulations, you’re average.  But you don’t have to stay that way.  Those who rise above the crowd are the ones who go the extra mile while others are relaxing in front of the TV.

The strength of a person’s character and drive to success is determined by whether or not they can finish what they started.

Employees who complete the task are more highly valued than those who, though they make a valiant effort, nevertheless, fail to complete the project.

The One by whom our every effort, thought and action should be measured. . . was a finisher.  Should we be any less?

John 4:34 in the New Living Translation says:

“Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.”

Not only was Jesus a finisher but he made us that way as well.

Access To An Unlimited Treasury

Written by Harold Herring.

Do you feel like shouting?   You will after reading Deuteronomy 28:12-13 in the Amplified Bible which says:

The Lord shall open to you His good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrowAnd the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them.”

These two verses contain seven priceless benefits. . .giving you unlimited access to the greatest treasure ever.

This unlimited treasury is available to every believer who follows two simple instructions.  Here are the seven priceless benefits.

1.         You have unlimited access to the treasures of heaven.

Let me put it another way. . .your heavenly treasure has more wealth than King Solomon, King Midas and the world’s 1,645 billionaires combined and tripled.  In fact, all that accumulated wealth would just be chump change when compared to the treasury in heaven to which you have unlimited access.

As I started writing this teaching. . .I was led to Genesis 28:12 which says:
