Are You Thinking Big Enough?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Perspective is critical to success.

Our perception of our current environment will shape our reality.

What are we saying about our lives?

Is your life in a hard place filled with tough days?

What are you saying about your family members?

Do you see your family as being filled with Godly potential?

What words are you speaking forth concerning your own future?

Genesis 1:26 in the King James Version says:

Energize Your Dreams With A Thankful Heart

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Words create.

We should really stop right there and let that short sentence sink into our spirits because of the magnitude of power it holds over us. 

Words create blessing or words release cursing.

Deuteronomy 30:19 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life that you and your descendants may live.”

Are you speaking words about your dreams. . .that will bring fulfillment or frustration?

What words are you saying about your dream?

Do you believe it is still possible to realize your dreams?

What steps are you taking to move toward your dreams?

Miracles attract attention.

Miracles point the sincere to Jesus.

Miracles lead the lost to their Savior.

Miracles are often verbally desired but seldom spiritually expected.

There is no such thing as a surprise miracle. . .you believe for it. . .pray for it and yes, you must expect it to manifest.

We must place our focus and expectation on miracle manifestation.  We must always be ready for a defining moment. . .so we never let it passes us by.

Here are seven keys for your miracle focus.

100 Days...Making Every One Count

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Today is the 100th day of 2016. (April 9, 2016)

Consider this rhetorical question.

Have we given the first 100 days of this year. . .100% of our best efforts?

2 Timothy 2:15 in the Message Bible says:

“Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won’t be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple.”

It’s time for an honest assessment of our efforts.

Your doorbell rings. . .you open the door to find Jesus standing there. . .He looks straight into your soul and says:

“We need to talk.”

Would your spirit soar or would your heart sink?

If He sat down at your kitchen table. . .took out His iPad and began you show you a video of the events in the first 100 days of this year. . .would you be proud of what you saw?

You Get Better At It Every Day

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

God loves it when we pull close to Him. . .He wants us reading and obeying His Word.

He wants us moving from glory to glory in His marvelous image.  During a recent Rich Thoughts for Breakfast we taught from Revelation 2:29 in the Message Bible.  The Lord used that scripture to show me seven keys of getting better in our spiritual walk every day.

Now, He directed me to put some meat on the bones of the seven points and share it with our world-wide Internet audience on Sunday Night LIVE.

But first, the letter to the church at Thyatira is the LONGEST of the seven letters, but was written to the smallest and seemingly least important of the seven cities. The point is God cares about each and every one of us.  No one is ever left out.

Here’s our primary scripture for this teaching.

Revelation 2:19 in the Message Bible says:

Alive With Resurrection Power

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

One of my favorite Easter songs is “He’s Alive” by Ray Boltz. It’s a powerful narrative of the Resurrection and it always gives me glory bumps.

The chorus says:

He's alive, He's alive

He's alive and I'm forgiven

Heaven's gates are open wide

Can somebody say Hallelujah!!!

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 says:

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

As I was meditating on this scripture. . .I felt the Lord leading me to write on this passage.   At first, I wasn’t sure exactly what he wanted me to write about.

Did He want me to write about how Resurrection Sunday should be celebrated 52 weeks a year?

7 Keys To Overcome The Charlie Brown Complex

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Do you want to be an effective witness for the Lord?  Of course, you do.

So what’s the key?

Handing out tracts in the workplace or leaving them wedged in the mirrors of public restrooms.  Maybe for some.

How about telling people how Jesus has changed your life?  Okay, we’re on the right track.

What about when you laugh and sing praises to our Lord?

Can that be an effective witness for the Lord?

Yes, according to Psalm 126:2 in the Classic Amplified Bible which says:

“Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing. Then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.”

5 Promises To Make You Shout!

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

To say that we live in a negative society would be a gross understatement of the facts.

The world is filled with negativity.  If you doubt it. . .just wait. . .the news media will make sure you realize just how negative things are.

I’m sure you probably encounter negative people in your workplace and at church.

Yes, even the House of God has some nattering nabobs of negativism.

I deal with negative people each day. . .on a variety of levels. . .some upset . . . some confused. . .why there situation isn’t better than it is.

Just doing business requires hearing from disgruntled people.

Yes, these are tough days and many of listeners are struggling.

7 Characteristics Of An Unmistakable Commitment

Written by Bev Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever asked yourself:

What’s my real commitment to the Word of God?

Does my commitment tend to change depending upon good times and bad times?

How firm is my commitment to the Word and God’s promises?

We can all praise God that He is definitely committed to us for the long haul.

1 Chronicles 16:15 in the New Living Translation says:

“Remember his covenant forever— the commitment he made to a thousand generations.”

When we commit to Him. . .He commits to us and supernatural manifestation takes place.

John 6:29 in the Message Bible says:

9 Things I Learned From A Sick Woman

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

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.
