7 Life-Changing Financial Confessions

Debt is disappearing.

Lack is leaving

Poverty is fleeing

Generosity is growing

At first, I thought God was giving me a great confession to be used in my seminars, church services and TV broadcasts.

Then suddenly, I realized it was much more. . .I knew He was giving me seven confessions to change our financial lives.

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever said, “I’ll get around to it?”  Did you? 

When we say that, it generally means we know we should . . . but we’re not going to do what we need to.  That is until we’re faced with something motivational like the reality of the consequences we’ll face for a failure to act.

If it isn’t obvious that we’re living in the end-times. . .just read the headlines in your local newspaper or on your favorite internet news source.

There’s an old Ray Charles song entitled “If It Wasn’t For Bad Luck.”  One refrain of the song says:  “if it wasn't for bad luck y'all. . .Oh! I wouldn't have no luck at all.”

7 Action Steps For Rich Thinkers

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

It’s one thing to think about what you want to do.  It’s another thing to speak about what you plan to do.  But, it’s an entirely different matter to act on what you’ve been thinking and speaking about doing.

Last evening, after a particularly long day. . .I came across James 1:22-24 in the Message Bible which says:

“Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.”

I was struck by five words in this passage of scripture when it says:

7 Questions To Help You Succeed With Your Purpose

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I’ve written about purpose dozens of times. . .but I feel impressed to discuss it again. . .from a little different perspective.

Dictionary.com defines purpose as:

1.      the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.

2.      an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.

God Has A Purpose For Your Life.

Say it out loud:  GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE…personalize and write it down.

Without your purpose identified firmly in your mind, you will wander through life, never quite feeling that you’re “in the flow.”

And let me be clear, your PURPOSE may have nothing to do with how you make money (your job)…because you can make MONEY in many ways.. that may not be directly related to your purpose….although you can still glorify God while doing your job.

Purpose gives meaning to WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.

There are seven questions that will determine where you are with regard to knowing and walking in your purpose.

7 Keys To Guarantee Your Plans Succeed

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

At 5:38 this past Sunday morning. . .I was pondering a question. . .that demands an answer.

Do we want to succeed enough to plan our action and then act on the plan?

It’s one thing to think about what we want to do. . .and that’s good. . .just not good enough.

It’s another thing to talk/speak/confess what we want to do. . .that’s good. . .just not good enough.

It’s something else to plan what we’re thinking about. . .and that’s good. . .just not good enough.

However, what we’re thinking, speaking and planning will never become a reality until we actually act on what we’ve been thinking, speaking and planning.

Here are seven keys to guarantee your plans will succeed.

7 Keys To Developing True Grit

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Recently, I was watching one of my favorite John Wayne movies entitled “Big Jake.”  The Duke as he was known was my favorite movie star during my formative years.  He was always the good guy.  The one who stood for what was right. . .regardless of the consequence.

My three favorite John Wayne quotes are:

# 1       “Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid.”

# 2       “Courage is being scared to death…but saddling up anyway.”

# 3       “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.”

John Wayne won his only Oscar in 1969 for the movie “True Grit.”  There’s a point in the movie where 14 year-old Mattie Ross says to Marshal Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) “They tell me you are a man with true grit.”

Dictionary.com defines true grit as:

God Loves You Even On Your Bad Days

Have you had a bad day. . .or maybe even a bad day or two or three this past week?

Do you feel like nothing is going right?

Are things that you thought not manifesting as you had planned them?

Does it feel like nobody cares about what’s happening in your life?

If you get nothing else from what we’re going to say in this teaching. . .let this next sentence get deep down in your mind and in your spirit.

7 "G" Forces To Overcome For Victorious Living

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

A couple of weeks back we taught “7 Threats To Your Success” on one of our Rich Thoughts for Breakfast calls.

The fourth threat in the teaching is:  “Ghosts, gorillas, gremlins and goblins from your past.”

From the moment the words came out of my spirit and onto the Word document. . .I knew it should be a SUNDAY NITE LIVE teaching.

I didn’t try to overanalyze . . . I just wrote down the seven G’s that we have to overcome to walk in victory. . .over our past.

7 Keys To Being An Effective Listener

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Did you realize the letters which form the word LISTEN also create the word SILENT?

Do think there’s a reason why God gave us two ears and one mouth?  It’s been recommended that perhaps we should listen twice as much as we talk.

It’s rude and disrespectful to interrupt someone when they’re speaking?

There’s a difference between hearing and listening?

Did you know that the scripture gives us “7 Keys To Being An Effective Listener?”
