Creflo Dollar: Love is God’s Banner

Love is God’s Banner - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesHe brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love (Song of Solomon 2:4).

Love is a weapon which the enemy has no concept of or defense against. God’s love for us ignites our ability to love others unconditionally.

Some may say, “But Pastor Dollar, you do not know what they did to me, how am I supposed to love them?”

I understand the temptation to withhold love from someone who has committed an evil act toward you, especially if you were a victim of a heinous crime such as rape, molestation, incest, physical abuse, emotional abuse or some other form of abuse. I dare not make light of your experience, but what God wants to do through your act of forgiveness is free you from the prison of un-forgiveness. Ephesians 4:32 tells us to “… be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake, hath forgiven you.”

As I pointed out earlier, love is a weapon. It is not a weapon against your perpetrator, but against the devil, the one who inspired your perpetrator’s actions. Having God’s banner of love over us is a witness to others, it serves as evidence that we are living by God’s standards, and not our own. Believe me, your enemies know that they are not deserving of the love demonstrated toward them; but neither are we deserving of the love God demonstrates toward us. Simply cast the hurt on God. He can and will heal your wounds, after all, His banner over you is love. Be blessed!

Creflo Dollar: God’s Debt-Release Plan (Part 2)

God's Debt-Release Plan (Part 2) - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesIn today’s article we are taking a look at the final steps that you can apply to experience breakthrough in the area of your finances.

Apply Violent Faith

Step four in God’s war plan on debt is applying violent faith to our financial situations. Violent faith involves building our faith by becoming intense regarding making our confessions, meditating on the Word, listening to CDs, or watching DVDs that contain the Word pertaining to our area of need. We do these things with intensity until we can see the tearing down of spiritual strongholds.

Violent faith is simply a disciplined refusal to take our minds off the Word. We confess the Word with a frequency and intensity that is unmatched. Being violent in the Spirit realm isn’t confessing Scriptures once or twice a week and expecting magical results. It takes much more than that to see accelerated results.

Forgive Yourself

The fifth step in God’s war plan against debt is forgetting past debts. In order to move forward, we must let go of the condemnation from making bad financial decisions and mistakes. Philippians 3:13–14 says, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are

before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

If Paul had dwelled on his past mistakes, he never would have embraced God’s destiny for his life. The condemnation of his past would have kept him stuck. We must get beyond the bad decisions we have made. Forgetting past debt does not mean we neglect the debts by not paying them. It simply means we press forward despite the mistakes we have made.

Press In

Once we make a quality decision to forget past debts, it’s time to press in on the promise of debt cancellation. Pressing in means we intensely focus on the spiritual and natural aspects of debt cancellation, while being consistent in doing our part.

I know that you are going to apply these steps for financial breakthrough and experience the joy of breaking free from the bondage of debt. Stay the course and take it one day at a time. God is with you and through Him all things are possible.

Be blessed.

Creflo Dollar: Choosing a Mate God’s way versus The World’s way (Part 1)

Choosing a Mate God's way versus The World's way (Part 1) - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesMyriad TV shows and advertisements target singles with the subliminal message that it is okay to do whatever you want with whomever you want to do it. I want to encourage all singles to change their thinking and begin to believe God has a plan that is greater than any plan the world or society has to offer (Jeremiah 29:11; Ephesians 3:20).

Marriage was created by God and is part of His plan for those who desire to enter this covenant relationship. Unfortunately, many people remain single because they make unwise choices when it comes to choosing a mate.

The following are some major questions I would like for singles to keep in mind:

Is He or She Responsible with Money?

Are you about to marry a shop aholic? Is your potential spouse an emotional spender? In other words, whenever upset, does this person go out and spend money on clothes, shoes, or other things? Does he or she spend large amounts of money on things and try to keep it from you? How your future spouse treats money now is a clear indication of how your husband or wife will spend money after you are married.

Is Your Future Spouse a Good Example for Children?

One day you are probably going to have children with this person. Is he or she the example you want your children to follow?

What Issues Do You Agree or Disagree On?

Be sure to make this one of the topics of conversation while you are dating. Get the issues resolved during the dating stage. You do not want these issues to creep up and cause problems after you are married.

Is There Self-Control over His or Her Sex Drive?

If the person you are considering marrying does not have control over his or her sex drive while you are dating, chances are there will be no control once you are married, which could possibly lead to extramarital affairs.

Be on the lookout for part two of Choosing a mate God’s way vs. the world’s way. These insights are practical guidelines for making a successful choice when contemplating marriage.

Be blessed.
