God Told Us Fifteen Times

Written by Harold Herring.

As I was reading Matthew 13:8,9 in the New Living Translation, something ignited in my spirit.

“Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!  Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

I’ve taught and/or quoted this passage of scripture dozens, oftimes but on this particular occasion verse nine just leaped out at me.

“Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

My first thought was that not everyone hearing about sowing and reaping a harvest of thirty, sixty and the hundredfold return will understand.

Some people simply are not in a position mentally, emotionally or spiritually to hear this scriptural truth about sowing and reaping.

7 Keys To Planning Your Work And Working Your Plan

Written by Harold Herring.

If every believer were to accomplish everything they’ve told me they’re going to do. . .or what they say. . .God told them to do. . .we’d have a gazillion more billionaires.

No question. . .Jesus would have returned for His Bride. . .because the whole world. . .every language and ethnic group would have heard the gospel.

Why hasn’t the rapture taken place?  It’s because a large number of Christians are better at talking than planning and/or doing.

Unfortunately, sometimes we talk. . .but we don’t plan.

Vince Lombardi, the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League once said:

Delay Doesn't Mean Denial

Written by Harold Herring.

As I listen to your phone messages, read your letters and emails, God allows me to feel your hurts and see your hopes for a better tomorrow.

Some of you have wondered either on paper or in your heart when the promises of God will be manifested in your life.

I know that delay tactics are a favorite deception of the enemy because he seeks to trip us up by filling us with doubt.

The enemy wants you to believe that salvation will never come to your family. . .but that’s not what the Word says.

7 Reasons Why You Should Be A Generous Tipper

Written by Harold Herring.

Are you a thief?  Do you steal from people while eating at restaurants?

I’m not taking about silverware, napkins or anything that belongs to the restaurant. . .but whether or not you’re stealing from your server.

Malachi 3:5 in the Message Bible says:

“Yes, I’m on my way to visit you with Judgment. I’ll present compelling evidence against sorcerers, adulterers, liars, those who exploit workers, those who take advantage of widows and orphans, those who are inhospitable to the homeless—anyone and everyone who doesn’t honor me.”

If you do not tip the proper amount (18%) then you are exploiting the worker (server).

God Has A Christmas Miracle For You

Written by Harold Herring.

Every time I read Luke 1:46-48. . .I get fired up about the things of God.

“And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name.”

Mary is praising God. . .giving Him all glory and honor for the great things He has done for her.

Why did God do great things for Mary?

Because she was obedient. . . when it wasn’t convenient.
