God Told Us Fifteen Times

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As I was reading Matthew 13:8,9 in the New Living Translation, something ignited in my spirit.

“Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!  Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

I’ve taught and/or quoted this passage of scripture dozens, oftimes but on this particular occasion verse nine just leaped out at me.

“Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

My first thought was that not everyone hearing about sowing and reaping a harvest of thirty, sixty and the hundredfold return will understand.

Some people simply are not in a position mentally, emotionally or spiritually to hear this scriptural truth about sowing and reaping.

7 Keys To Planning Your Work And Working Your Plan

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

If every believer were to accomplish everything they’ve told me they’re going to do. . .or what they say. . .God told them to do. . .we’d have a gazillion more billionaires.

No question. . .Jesus would have returned for His Bride. . .because the whole world. . .every language and ethnic group would have heard the gospel.

Why hasn’t the rapture taken place?  It’s because a large number of Christians are better at talking than planning and/or doing.

Unfortunately, sometimes we talk. . .but we don’t plan.

Delay Doesn't Mean Denial

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

As I listen to your phone messages, read your letters and emails, God allows me to feel your hurts and see your hopes for a better tomorrow.

Some of you have wondered either on paper or in your heart when the promises of God will be manifested in your life.

I know that delay tactics are a favorite deception of the enemy because he seeks to trip us up by filling us with doubt.

The enemy wants you to believe that salvation will never come to your family. . .but that’s not what the Word says.

7 Reasons Why You Should Be A Generous Tipper

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Are you a thief?  Do you steal from people while eating at restaurants?

I’m not taking about silverware, napkins or anything that belongs to the restaurant. . .but whether or not you’re stealing from your server.

Malachi 3:5 in the Message Bible says:

“Yes, I’m on my way to visit you with Judgment. I’ll present compelling evidence against sorcerers, adulterers, liars, those who exploit workers, those who take advantage of widows and orphans, those who are inhospitable to the homeless—anyone and everyone who doesn’t honor me.”

If you do not tip the proper amount (18%) then you are exploiting the worker (server).

God Has A Christmas Miracle For You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Every time I read Luke 1:46-48. . .I get fired up about the things of God.

“And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name.”

Mary is praising God. . .giving Him all glory and honor for the great things He has done for her.

Why did God do great things for Mary?

Because she was obedient. . . when it wasn’t convenient.

It was 5:39 in the morning when God dropped the number 13 in my spirit.

I don’t believe in luck. . .so I don’t believe 13 is an unlucky number.

I asked our Heavenly Father to reveal the reason He stirred the number 13 in my spirit.

7 Things To Do When Your Star Leads You To A Stable

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I remember years ago, traveling to the mountains of North Carolina with my fine wife Bev and my parents for a long weekend get-away.

We started looking for a hotel room and were unable to fine one for over 60 miles along Interstate 40. 

The clerk at the first hotel we stopped at told us that we would have a problem finding accommodations.  He informed us that the annual Furniture Market was taking place in High Point, North Carolina and there wasn’t a sleeping room to be found within 60 miles in any direction of that huge event.  We found out he was right.

This particular journey was before the days of cell phones and computers.  If you wanted to call ahead you use a pay phone.  We stopped at exit after exit only to hear the same message. . .there was no room in the inn  . . . Holiday or otherwise.

We had the money but there was a room to be found.  At least, my fine wife Bev wasn’t about to give birth.

7 Keys To Praying In A Financial Miracle

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Need a financial miracle?  The wrong place to look for answers and direction is Google Search.

I did a search on “how to pray for financial miracles.”

The first reference was an ad offering me a miracle prayer cloth.

I believe in prayer cloths. . .I have given them away in times past and may even do so again because Paul gave them away in the book of Acts when the anointing was strong.  However, I don’t think a prayer cloth is the first key to your miracle.
