Get Your Momentum Going

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Last night, at the end of a very long day. . .I was meditating on what to share during our SUNDAY NITE LIVE broadcast.

I was directed to look up the number of days left in 2017. . .at the moment there were 273 days or roughly 23 million seconds.

I wrote down seven things to learn. . .and went to bed.  I awakened this morning refreshed, renewed and ready to go.

Here are seven things to learn and practice during the next 273 days.

1.       Learn to maintain your momentum.

Here are seven keys to developing and maintaining momentum.

First, stop seeing yourself the way others see you.

When we’re confident of who we are in Christ. . .when we exercise our faith . . . when we know we are on the right path. . .then we should never be moved by what others. . .including friends and family members may say.

Second, despise not small beginnings.

Begin Your Move Today...Toward Surplus

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I was guilty of what I’m about to say. . .but not anymore.

I used to speak about what I had to have to meet this or that need.  I, unwittingly, developed a need mentality. . .which was reinforced by the words of my mouth.

I can remember totaling up bills and praying for God to meet a need of this amount or that amount by a specific date planting seed when I learned that concept.

When the need was met. . .I breathed a sigh of relief and, of course, gave God the glory.

However, a moment of pure revelation came to my fine wife Bev and I. . .the day we realized that we should stop thinking and speaking in terms of need. . and begin thinking and speaking surplus.

The simple fact is when you live in surplus. . .you’ll never have to ask God to meet another need. . .ever again.

It’s time to go on a little journey with us. . .through three verses of scripture. . .where we will find seven reasons to stop thinking need and begin speaking surplus.

Deuteronomy 28:10-12 in the Amplified Bible says:

Seven Favorite Weapons Of Satan

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I must confess to you there are occasions when I wonder why I’m teaching what I’m teaching when I first start reading, studying, praying and writing.

Preparing seven favorite weapons of the enemy. . .was one of those occasions.

But as I got deeper into this teaching. . .I marveled at the things God revealed to me to share.

I know this teaching will help heal and comfort many who’ve been under a major assault from the enemy.  But hey… no assaults are fun.

Here are the seven favorite weapons of the enemy.

1.         Deception

Who deceives you?

Genesis 3:13 says:

“Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

2 Corinthians 4:4 in the Amplified Bible says:

Decide And Decree A Year Of Unlimited Miracles

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

You can make this year of 2017 Your Year Of Unlimited Miracles.

Last month. . .we asked our listeners and viewers to determine the #1 hindrance that’s been holding them back from doing what God and they want to accomplish in 2017.

As we read through letters and emails . . . we noticed that one thing comprised over 50% of the hindrances.

That was procrastination . . . the inability to make a decision or get started. After considering this problem in prayer . . . we were led to talk about this major basic hindrance on this call.

God reminded us of Job 22:28 in the Classic Amplified Bible which says:

“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”

When a king made a decree. . .it carried the force of the law with it.  It was always a written document. . .specific in nature. .  bearing his signature. And obeyed without question.

As we read your correspondence. . .it was easy to see. . .there were some who believed without a shadow of a doubt they would accomplish their goals. . .there were some who wanted to move forward but they were being hindered by fear or a lack of confidence. 

An important recorded decree in scripture was by King Cyrus in 536 BC as recorded in 2 Chronicles 36:22-23.  In The Living Bible it says:

5Fold Leadership In The Marketplace

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

((Editor's Note....if you're blessed by this teaching order Brother Harold's newest book "5Fold Leadership In The Marketplace.))

Have you ever wondered why the secular business world seems to flourish but the greater portion of God’s Kingdom lags behind?

Is that what God intended?

Did God design the business world to be separate from the church?

Or is the world and God’s kingdom designed to be one with each other? 

In a flash of revelation, God showed me His divine plan for mankind.  What we have seen in part will fully come together as we enter the end times.

7 Lessons From A Broke Multi-Millionaire

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As I was praying earlier this morning, the Lord brought to my remembrance the life of Job. . .a multi-millionaire.

In the first 19 verses of Job chapter one, we read of the demonic attack against this good godly man.

Job lost all his wealth, all his money and all his children were killed and then his health was attacked.  In a word, you could say. . .Job lost it "all."  He was broke . . . but not broken.

What was Job's response?

Job 1:20 says:

"Job got to his feet, ripped his robe, shaved his head, then fell to the ground and worshipped."

The scripture says Job fell to the ground but it doesn't say that he fell down in defeat, that he fell down and gav

e up...that he fell down and blamed everybody else.

The scripture is clear. . .in the midst of a horrendous attack. . .Job WORSHIPPED GOD.

Your Breakthrough Is On The Way

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As I was in special prayer for our partners. . .God showed me in a particular verse seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way.

Like others. . .you may have prayed about birthing a new habit. . .turning lack into more than enough. . .and the need for a breakthrough in your life.

God directed my attention to Daniel 10:12 in the Amplified Bible where He drew a direct parallel to what happened to Daniel and what may have happened to you.

“Then he said to me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.”

Here are seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way and they all come from this passage of scripture.

1.      Fear Not

In the King James Version of the Bible we’re told nine times that we should be “born again.”  So I think it’s fair to say that being born again is significant and obviously important to God.  After all, He paid the ultimate price by sending His only begotten Son that we should not perish but have everlasting and abundant life. . .by being born again.

Would it surprise you to know that in the King James Version of the Bible were told SIXTY-THREE times to “fear not?”

God wants us to eliminate all fear of failure.

Joshua 8:1says:

Keys To Your Unlimited Financial Success

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

1.       Aggressively use your faith and believe for a return                                                               

We’re going to state some absolute biblical facts. They are actually fundamental to the principle of increase God put in the Bible on our behalf.

You must give to receive anything … God, not man, based multiplication based on sowing.  God can only multiply planted seed.  Nothing multiplied by nothing equals nothing.

Yes, you must give expecting to receive … the point is no farmer ever puts seed in the ground not expecting a harvest in return.

Give and it will be given unto you.  We need to fundamentally understand & believe that God uses seedtime and harvest to prosper us.  It was His intent… and not something the church or a preacher cooked up to make them rich and you poor.

Expect a financial miracle every day…look expectedly for your return.

God is your source.  Never look to man to be your source.

A pity party will never get God’s attention but a seed will.

No matter how bad your financial situation is…you will never get God to feel sorry for you.

The Next Step To Your Year Of Unlimited

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

We’re joined tonight by partners and friends from around the world. . .who in faith are believing for 2017 to be their Year of Unlimited Miracles.

The immediate question that comes to mind is this. . .

Are things in your life better or different than they were 43 days ago when you joined us on January 1, 2017?

If not, why not?  Or more importantly are you willing to do something about it?

This is why we continued these monthly calls.  It is only with determination that some will receive a breakthrough in the desperate situations they are facing.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 in the New Living Translation says:

“So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.”

If you want to know what we’ve been doing on your behalf since January 1st. . .the answer is found in this verse.

Winners . . . Recognize This

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever come across someone whom you haven’t seen in years and the very first thing they say to you is. . . “Wow, you’ve changed so much that I barely recognized you.”

Perhaps, on occasion you've had people fail to recognize a change in your appearance, maybe a hair color or radical haircut.

More frequently people, even some of those closest to you, fail to recognize the inward changes in your life.

There are also times that we may not recognize someone because of a change in their behavior, attitude and/or character.

Sometimes we even fail to recognize people or the changes in those people but there are seven things winners. . .always recognize.  We have the power to change our daily lives and our destiny here on planet earth.

1.         Recognize your Enabler

God gives you the breath of life. . .PLUS He enables, enlightens, empowers, equips and energizes you with everything you need to fulfill your destiny.

It’s important to understand the source of all your power and insightYou must know who He is and the fact that it’s possible to change.

1 Corinthians 1:18 in The Living Bible says: “I know very well how foolish it sounds to those who are lost, when they hear that Jesus died to save them. But we who are saved recognize this message as the very power of God.”

As a born-again believer we are the recipients of the power of God.

John 14:26 in the Amplified Bible says:

There's A Pony In Here...Somewhere

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Do you feel like you’ve been going through bad stuff?

Are you convinced that you shouldn’t have to deal with the mess you’re dealing with?

What you’re facing at the moment may stink . . . but that doesn’t necessarily change the circumstances.

One of my favorite motivational stories was first told by President Ronald Reagan.

The story concerns twin boys around sixEach of the boys had developed extreme personalities that worried their parents.  One was a total optimist . . .happy, giggling all the time. . .while the other twin was a total pessimist, crying and whining about everything.

The parents were so concerned about the difference personalities in the twins they took them to a psychiatrist.

First, the psychiatrist treated the pessimist. Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys. But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears. "What's the matter?" the psychiatrist asked, baffled by his response. "Don't you want to play with any of the toys?" "Yes," the little boy bawled, "but I'll only break them or somebody may come take them away."

Next, the psychiatrist treated the optimist. Trying to dampen his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure. But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist shouted with delight.  Then the little boy climbed to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop of manure with his bare hands.

"What do you think you're doing?" the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. "With all this manure," the little boy replied, beaming, "there must be a pony in here somewhere!"
