Creflo Dollar: Conquering Lack

Conquering Lack - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Did you know that you have the ability to overcome every negative situation that you face? Battles are a part of life, and you must be equipped by God with might in order to win them. The act of winning the battle is called conquest. It is the act of conquering, and is yours by faith. As a Believer, you have been made a conqueror through Jesus, and you can trust that He will enable you to get the victory.

The Word of God declares that you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ (Romans 8:37). Being more than a conqueror means that the victory God wants to give you will far exceed your expectations. The challenge that most Christians have is resisting the temptation to try and do things in their own abilities. They forget that it is through Him that they are able to conquer debt, lack and financial hardship.

One of the many challenging battles that people face is in the area of their finances. When the bills are piling up and creditors are calling your house nonstop, it can be difficult to feel as if you have the power to overcome lack. However, how you feel has nothing to do with what God can do. By tapping into His supernatural power, you can be victorious over what appears to be a lack of financial provision.

Though your situation may seem impossible, you have the assurance of knowing that nothing is too hard for God. When you realize that you have the ability to consistently win battles, you won’t tolerate living from paycheck to paycheck and going in debt to have your needs met. Take authority over lack in the name of Jesus and ask God to give you wisdom and strategies to use.

I really enjoy communicating to people the practical side of God’s Word. Many times, particularly where finances are concerned, Christians are quick to work on the spiritual aspects of their breakthroughs such as prayer, making faith confessions from the Word and giving tithes and offerings, but they fail to do the natural part. Doing one without the other won’t get you anywhere.

In looking at your financial profile, it is important to determine where you need to make adjustments in your financial decisions. When you are responsible with what God has already given you, He will empower you to have more. For example, spending beyond your means is not going to help you overcome debt and lack but will only lead you further into a financial hole. Using credit cards all the time and buying things that you know you can’t afford are all factors in the poverty equation. If you continue being irresponsible with your money, you will continue to lack the finances you need to bless others and take care of yourself. However, by doing your part in the natural, along with the spiritual aspect from the Word, you will never run out. In fact, God will increase you at every turn.

Conquerors are made by God. When His supernatural ability gets on you, you can conquer anything. First Samuel 16:13 says, “Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him [David] in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward…” Just as David was, you are anointed to be victorious over lack. Don’t let the devil bog you down with what looks like an impossible situation. Receive the ability to overcome. God will bring you out every time.

Dr. Creflo Dollar: Eliminate the Fear Factor

Eliminate the Fear Factor - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Dr. Creflo Dollar

Are you afraid of heights? Or do you become hysterical at the mere sight of spiders? Perhaps you live in constant fear that you will never get ahead in life. Whether you are afraid of heights, spiders or failure, let’s be clear on one thing; it is not good to have any amount of fear in your life.

I have heard people say, “A little fear is good for you.” I disagree. Fear is not good at all. It is a trap used by the enemy to keep you from operating in the will of God. The opposite of fear is faith, and Hebrews 11:6 says, “…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is…” Satan knows that you must have faith to believe that God’s promises will come to pass. If he can get you to doubt God’s promises, he will accomplish his goal of taking you out of the will of God, thereby keeping you from receiving your blessing.

Ask yourself these three questions to find out whether you are believing God’s Word or walking in fear:

1) Whose word is getting into my heart?

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, but fear comes by hearing the words of Satan. Negative words can get into your heart by entering through your eyes (what you watch) and your ears (what you listen to). Eventually those things will enter your mouth (what you say), and once you begin to speak negative words, those things will ultimately become a part of your life. Be sure to put God’s Word into your heart to increase your faith.

2) Who’s side am I on?

The world system operates by fear. The kingdom of God system operates by faith. The world system says that you have to be educated, have a certain degree, be the right color, come from the right neighborhood, say the right things or wear the right clothes. If you contradict this system, you may be challenged by feelings of inadequacy, which comes from fear. But in the kingdom of God system, God is not a respecter of persons; He is a respecter of faith. It’s up to you to decide which system you will follow.

3) What am I connected to?

Fear is a spiritual connector and so is faith. Faith will connect you with the Word of God. Fear will connect you with the very thing you fear. For example, fear of death will connect you to the death that you fear. Fear of lack will connect you to the lack that you fear. Fear of cancer will connect you with cancer. Don’t allow fear to connect you to negative circumstances. Instead, use your faith to release the blessings of God into your life.

Creflo Dollar: Get Your Right Mind

Get Your Right Mind - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Did you know that your thinking directly affects how you feel and the decisions that you make? It’s true. When you are feeling depressed, sad or angry, you are more likely to make a bad decision. On the other hand, when you spend time with God, seek His wisdom and align your feelings with His Word, your choices will have a more favorable outcome. Too often, people make bad decisions because they are acting out on their emotions rather than remaining focused on the will and Word of God. The key to getting control over your emotions is straightening out your thought life and recognizing that negative emotions stem from wrong thoughts that you have accepted into your mind.

Emotions are feelings on the inside trying to move you in a particular direction. When your thought life is full of doubt, fear and unbelief, your emotions will reflect your mindset and influence your decisions in the wrong direction. Negative emotions will cause you to feel powerless, but you don’t have to be held captive by bad feelings. The Word says to think on those things that are honest, lovely and of good report (Philippians 4:8). Being a guardian over your thoughts is essential to keeping your emotions in line with the Word.

By meditating on what the Bible has to say about your life, you fill your mind and heart with the thoughts of God, and can root out negative emotions. A mind that is in agreement with God will actually produce positive emotions that will keep you in His will for your life. Peace and security can be your reality every day rather than uncertainty and discontent if you train yourself to think positively by using the Scriptures for meditation. When Jesus comes into your life, He changes your heart to desire a life of abundance.

The Word says to guard your heart with all diligence because the issues of your life flow out of it. Whatever you allow into your spirit will end up overwhelming and overtaking your life. If you let negative emotions take root in your heart, the result will be a negative life because these emotions will lead you away from the will of God and the destiny He has for you.

You may feel that your circumstances are beyond your control, but don’t allow what things look like in the natural to make you feel depressed or anxious. Satan will try to sabotage your decisions by getting you to receive his negative thoughts and suggestions. Don’t let him do that! Go to God and let Him transform your thinking. Begin speaking positive, affirming words that will bolster your faith, and think about how much your Father loves you. Use these keys to uproot negative emotions every time:

  1. Be conscious of your decisions and why you are making them. Don’t allow fear and unbelief to enter your mind.
  2. Guard your heart by confessing scriptures that support God’s image of you and His plan for your life.
  3. Maintain an attitude of expectancy. Put on the garment of praise and expect God to do everything you’ve asked and more (Ephesians 3:20)!
