Seven Keys To 2013 Being Your Year Of Unfulfilled Promises...FULFILLED

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I ask the Lord if He had a word for His people for 2013 and His answer ignited in my spirit.

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.
