God Will Pay You For It

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Good morning and welcome to Rich Thoughts for Breakfast.

If you’re discouraged . . . if you’re feeling blue . . . feeling sorry for yourself  . . . then do something for someone else.

Dr. Karl Menninger, a leader in the field of mental health, was once asked, “What would you advise a person to do if he’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown?”

The person asking the questions expected Dr. Menninger to come out with some profound psychological insight. However, he looked his questioner straight in the eye and said:

“Lock up your house, go across the railroad tracks, find someone in need and do something to help that person.”

The thing that will help every believer in the midst of a crisis is to get their eyes off their problem . . .stop talking about it. . .stop rehearsing their hurts and pains. Instead, put your focus on doing good for someone else . . . it works because it is a totally biblical principle.

Are You One Of The 24 Prayer Elders?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

Below is the text form a special email I sent this morning concerning 24 hours of Prayer on January 24th. I have also included the audio from my RichThoughts for Breakfast call from January 21st: Are You One of the 24? Audio.

It was 1:45 AM when I awakened from a deep sleep ... and “Day Of Prayer” was stirring in my spirit.

My first thought was God was directing me to build another Tabernacle of Prayer as I did on January 1, 2010 ... but He allowed me to drift back off to sleep without fully getting His instructions as to what He wanted me to do.

The 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.

7 Keys To A Life Of Significance

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

A few weeks ago, I taught “How To Live In Significance and Opulence” on Rich Thoughts for Breakfast.    As I was teaching during the call. . .I was stirred to write “seven keys to significance.”

James 4:10 in the Amplified Bible says:

Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant].”

It’s not what you do. . .that builds a life of significance. . .it’s who you serve.

What does it mean to live a life that is significant?

According to dictionary.com the word significant means “important; of consequence.”

In order to achieve significance in this life. . .we must first. . .manifest humility in our everyday life.

  6.  Life is not determined by outward acts or circumstances…but rather by our thoughts.  Phil 4:8
