Creflo Dollar: Mighty In God’s Love

Mighty In God's Love - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Everyone experiences rough times in life. But having trials doesn’t mean that you’ve missed God. On the contrary, your trials are often a sign that you’re on the path to your destiny. When breakthrough is near, trouble often appears to sidetrack or distract you to keep you from receiving what is waiting for you. Although your trials may be difficult, you must realize that you already have everything you need to triumph over them. You’ve been equipped by God with a measure of might, and that is what will help you successfully overcome anything that sets itself against you.

What exactly is “might”? Might is “the power, authority or resources wielded.” It is your God-given ability to do whatever is necessary to accomplish a particular task. In the Bible, David used might to kill the giant, Goliath (1 Samuel 17). Likewise, Daniel used his might to tap into God’s wisdom to read the handwriting on the wall (Daniel 5:13-29). If you want to operate in this same kind of might, you must first recognize its source: the Word of God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 describes the various weapons available to help you win any battle. These weapons—the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit—all work together to enable you to stand against any opponent. When you firmly establish God’s Word in your heart, you are suiting up for battle and arming yourself with God’s weapons. And this is how you turn on the power of might.

First John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world….” When you become born again and allow the Word of God to take root on the inside of you, your victory in every battle is assured; you can overcome the world. That’s why in the face of every battle, you must believe that your victory is already at hand.

It is not enough just to know the Word, however. You must also know God’s heart behind the Word in order to activate the power of might in your life. The Bible is a written expression of God’s love, and it contains the truth about His character. When you know God’s character, you know His heart. And it’s knowing God’s heart—His true intentions and His will for you—that gives you confidence in Him and turns on might.

In every situation that you face, think to yourself, What do I know about God’s character? The first thing you know from God’s Word is that He loves you unconditionally and wants you to triumph in your battles (2 Corinthians 2:14). Next, you know that you have been commanded to love God with all of your heart, mind and soul (Matthew 22:37). Since God requires this kind of love from you, He is faithful to love you in the same way. Because He loves you, He will protect you and bring manifestation into your life. Walking confidently in the knowledge of God’s love keeps you walking in the power of might.

Might is a direct result of your revelation of God’s love. So if your doctor gives you a bad report or your harvest hasn’t yet come in, think about how much God loves you and wants the best for you. Keep a positive attitude, and don’t let doubt enter your mind. Anytime you question God’s ability or willingness to intercede on your behalf in any situation, you doubt His love for you and you hinder might from operating in your life.

Battles are real, but victories are even more real to the Believer. Even in the midst of your trials, position yourself right where God wants you to be—in the center of His love. Believe in His love and walk in the power of might today!

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.
