7 Reasons You've Got More Than You Can See

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I was talking with a man recently who said:

“People are getting laid off.”                                 People can’t find jobs.”

People are taking pay reductions.”                     People can’t pay their bills.

People are slashing their budgets.”                     Home values are dropping

Savings accounts are being emptied.                 Investments have gone up in smoke.

He looked at me…smiled and said….that’s just what’s happening in my family.

I had another man ask me what was my best investment advice for right now….

7 Keys To Happiness

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Samuel was ninety-two years old and blind. . .but he was mentally sharp even after his wife Sarah went home to be with the Lord.  However, Samuel didn’t feel he should live alone anymore.  His two children and their families lived miles away in different states so Samuel decided to move in a residential living facility for seniors.

On the morning of his move. . .Samuel was packed, impeccably dressed and waiting for his cab to take him to his new home.  Right on schedule the cab arrived at 8 AM.

Samuel, as was his life-long custom, arrived early and had to wait a few minutes before Jasmine, a young assistant at the facility came to take him to his new room.

Even though Samuel had to maneuver his walker down the corridor . . .he was able to maintain a brisk pace.  Jasmine began to describe Samuel’s room in detail as they walked together.  She said the room had a new couch, recliner, desk area and best of all, a big window looking out at the forest. Plus, he would be able to move freely with his cane because of how the furniture was arranged

Samuel interrupted Jasmine’s detailed description and said:  “I love it.  I love it.  I love it.”

Jasmine smiled and said “Mr. Samuel, we’re not there yet.  You haven’t seen your room.  Hold on and I’ll show it to you in a minute.  It’s down the next hall.”

The Way to Change Things … a Mother’s Day Message by Bev Herring

There are really three ways to run a church.

First, the Pastor can do it all.

Second, the church can pay for everything to be done.

Third, develop people to handle all the details.

The problem with the Pastor doing it all...is that the church must rely on the capabilities and strength of one person or couple.  So the church ends up, at the best, limited, and at worst the couple gets totally burned out.

But...you can also use money.  It just takes a lot of it to finance a church budget...even a small church. 

7 Keys To Turning Your Dreams Into Reality

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever thought about how you’d like to be recognized?

Genesis 37:19 says:

“And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.”

The dreamer cometh.  I think I like that.

The context of this scripture may have been made in a negative way…but Joseph’s dreams are what sustained him through every trial and brought victory and preservation to his brothers when they needed it the most.

7 Reasons "If" Is Not For Believers

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.”

Some people fail to recognize a change in your appearance, maybe a change in your hair color, radical new cut or even hair loss.

While some people will recognize the change in your outward appearance few may recognize the inward changes in your life.

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

While you may on occasion fail to recognize someone for one reason or another. . .there is one thing you will never fail to recognize.

7 Reasons To Stay Out Of Egypt

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I have taught the story of Isaac sowing in the midst of an economic famine and reaping a hundredfold return many, many times to audiences around the world.

I’ve spoken, taught and preached how God told Isaac in Genesis 26:2 to “. . . Go not down into Egypt. . .” more times than I can remember.

In a very special moment the Lord gave me the outline for a teaching that I call  “Seven Reasons To Stay Out Of Egypt.”

At a time when everyone else was following the world system by heading to Egypt to escape the economic hard times . . . God told Isaac to stay. 

Unfortunately, way too many believers follow the “wisdom” of the world when it comes to their personal finances as opposed to following the instructions found in the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

7 Things To Never Misplace

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever misplaced something you not only wanted to find. . .but you had to find.

Perhaps, it was your car or house keys. . .an important document for work or some back-up files for your taxes.

After some time passed and more mental anguish than you care to admit you finally found the misplaced items.

Recently, a precious, close friend of ours, Pastor Malc Burton sent me the following text.

“Good morning, Pastor.  Read Psalm 62:5 when you get a moment.  God stirred me this morning about misplaced expectation and misplaced trust.  Love you.”

7 Facts About Your Point Of Contact

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I’ve always heard some men and women of God talk about a point of contact when it comes to the prayer of agreement.

Over the years I’ve come to believe a point of contact is anything God instructs us to do to help release our faith.

Our point of contact could be the prayer of faith…the laying on of hands…an act of faith that causes you to move outside your comfort zone, Holy Communion…a prayer cloth or anything that requires a step of faith toward the previously unknown.

A point of contact is a method we use to reach God and obey His divine instructions

Point of contact is also used in transferring the anointing and healing.

7 Things Sickness Steals From You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Sickness is evil. . .it is not of God.

We never see God introduce it in the Bible.  We only see it show up after Satan comes into the picture.

Though there are some well-meaning Christians who feel it’s a cross God wants us to bear. 

Not so.  Absolutely, scripturally speaking not so.

The only things we see come from God are good gifts. . .advantageous gifts.
