7 Keys To Release The Power In Your Hands

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Hold your hands up. . .what do you see?

Something to cover your mouth when you yawn. . .something to eat with. . .something to comb your hair with. . .something to help you work . . .something to help you play.

When God looks at your hands, He sees unlimited potential for blessings, miracles, and prosperity.  We already have that authority as believers!

John 3:35 says:

“The Father loved the son and placed everything in his hands.”

When the soldiers came to take Jesus captive in the Garden of Gethsemane, the first thing they did was to bind his hands.  Why?

. . .those hands had made mud, placed it on the eyes of a blind man that allowed him to see instantly.

. . .those hands took the five loaves and two fishes from a young man and fed thousands of people.

. . .those hands had been laid upon a great host of people who found His healing touch brought instant relief to their sick and suffering bodies.

. . .those hands  stopped a funeral procession. . .touched the body of a young boy and gave his mother great joy and him a new life.

. . .those hands had resurrection power -- but so do yours.

Destined For Manifest Victory

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Life Strategies

Heaven is a place that words cannot describe.

I have a really good friend, Dr. Roberts Liardon, the author of the God’s Generals series who went to heaven at the age of 8.  The things he shared in his book “I Saw Heaven” are amazing and thought-provoking.

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to spending an eternity in heaven.  I’m excited about heaven but frankly I’m not ready to go yet…I still have a God-given vision to fulfill.

But one day. . .someday soon. . .in the twinkling of an eye. . .I’ll be gone.

I’m excited because I’ve got a first class ticket.  Can you imagine the view we’ll have as we’re going up?

I must admit that I might even look around to see who’s going up with me and maybe who’s not.

Should I die before the rapture. . .talk about a glorious transition.

I might also tell you that I’m excited about the welcoming committee.  No doubt, friends and family members who’ve gone on before. . .will be waiting.

7 Keys To Becoming A Rich Thinker

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

If you want things to be different in your life. . .the number one thing you need to change is not your job, circumstances, environment, relationships or income. . .it’s you.

You must first change the way you think. . .which means changing your attitude. 

Romans 12:2 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”

Change is a door than can only be opened from the inside.

When you begin to feed on the Word of God on a regular basis. . .your thought processes begin to change. . .then your attitude begins to change.

Your attitude is determined by the collection of the dominant thoughts in your mind.  So in determining the proper kind of attitude for change. . .we must look at Philippians 2:5 in the New Living Translation which says:

Prosperity, Problems And Praise

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Life Strategies

Prosperity tested my focus.

Poverty distorted my focus.

Prosperity proved my theology.

Poverty challenged my theology.

Nothing has moved me away from God.

Different seasons reveal different information.

Many say we learn nothing about ourselves during good times.

Honestly, I disagree.  I believe we can gather personal insight during both good and bad times.

Good times revealed my appreciation for the goodness of God.

Get Free From These 7 Things

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

July 4th is not just another holiday.

It's much more than a trip to the beach, lake or pool.  It's much more than a picnic in the park or backyard.  This holiday is more than oohing and awing at fireworks displays.

July 4th is about freedom and liberty won and maintained through great personal sacrifice, commitment and faith.

Our independence was won by those who were willing to pay the ultimate price so that you and I could enjoy a holiday such as this.

George Washington said:

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

The following is a great story about General Washington’s faith in God.

During the dark days of the American Revolution, when the Continental Army had experienced several setbacks, a farmer who lived near the battlefield approached Washington’s camp unheard.

Stretch Out Your Hand

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Our faith is under attack.

This is not really a new thing.

But. . .HALLELUJAH. . .these attacks cannot stop the power of God.

But the work of God is done on earth through believing faith.

Attacks come to hinder our faith by breaking our focus. . .with the purpose of  trying to keep the plan of God from manifesting in our lives.

Mark 3:1 in the New King James Version says:

“And He entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand.”

This is one of my favorite stories in scripture.

The man was positioned to receive alms. . .to put bread on his table for a day.  But on this particular day. . .he was positioned for a miracle.

Our God is a deliverer Who does not like to see His children hurting.

God Is Not Tired Today

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Life Strategies

I’m going to make a statement that’s not a major revelation but it’s an absolute fact we can all agree on.

Life can wear you down.

I understand being bone tired.

But I have never felt so tired that I wouldn’t make every effort to turn things around.

The Holy Spirit becomes my Energizer Bunny renewing my mind, refreshing my strength and re-invigorating my day.

I have fought issues and things that seemed unchanging. . .but they were NOT.

God alone can be described as unchanging.

Malachi 3:6 in the King James Version says:

“For I am the Lord, I change not. . .”

Why I Have Not Always Prospered?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Life Strategies

Prosperity is God’s plan for His people.

There has never been a doubt in my mind about this.

But, there was one time in my life. . .where I bought into the argument that if prosperity was right . . . why are there so many poor people in third world countries.

Then I came to understand that most of those countries have a heritage of voodoo, pagan or occult practices.

Heritage makes a difference.  When good seed is sown … even in a nation … the nation reaps the benefits.  These nations were not Christian and neither do they have a legacy of faith.

When I began writing this teaching I had something totally different in mind.  But, the Holy Spirit arrested my attention...and I hope the same happens with you.

Here are seven keys to a major reason some people don’t prosper.

1.       Make things right with them.
