Creflo Dollar: The Law of Confession

The Law of Confession - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

God has given us a powerful method to obtain His promises, and it is up to us to use it. That method is confession. Confession, as it pertains to the Bible, is when you speak the Word of God out loud. Words are spiritual containers that release either fear or faith. Every time you speak, you are activating spiritual forces that will affect your life. This is why it is so important to be mindful of the words we speak and to make sure we are only saying what God has said in His Word.

Similar to the law of gravity, the law of confession will work for anyone who will get involved with it. Many Christians who have been defeated in life are defeated because they believe and confess the wrong things. They don’t realize that their words are activating a spiritual law that is working against them. We must understand the law of confession if we want things to work for us. We have been given access to the power of God through our words, which are weapons against the enemy.

Satan is constantly applying pressure to our minds in order to get us to quit in these last days; however, we do not have to allow hard times or pressure to defeat us. We can use the Word of God as a weapon against the enemy, and win.

In order to be victorious over the attacks of the enemy, we must think, believe, and speak in line with God’s Word. In fact, believing the Word in our hearts is the prerequisite for our confessions having a significant impact in our lives. Mark 9:23 says, “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Faith is the force that must be in operation in order for our confessions to come to pass. Sometimes people confess God’s Word religiously, mechanically, and out of fear; however, these types of confessions don’t accomplish anything. We must believe that the things we confess from the Bible are coming to pass as we pray and speak them.

We can look to God as an example of how faith-filled words cause things to manifest in the natural realm. In the biblical account of how God created the earth, the Word says that He spoke and whatever He spoke came into existence (Genesis 1). God’s words are full of faith, which is what caused them to become actual physical substance. The things we see in this earth today, from the sky to the trees, are the result of words that were spoken by God.

The same creative power that God possesses has been invested in us. As spiritual beings who possess the nature of God, we have the ability to speak things into existence just like God did. This isn’t some mystical, New Age idea; it is scriptural. When Jesus walked the earth, He imitated His Father by speaking what the Father spoke. As a result, He saw results everywhere He went. Likewise, we must be imitators of God, who think, act, and speak like Him. When we speak His Words, we release His creative ability into the earth, and something always happens. When we believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that the words we speak will come to pass, we will see what we are speaking (Mark 11:22-23).

The Bible says that all things are possible for those who believe. Confessing God’s Word is so powerful because every time we hear ourselves speaking the Scriptures, we are actually planting faith in our hearts. The more we become established on the Word of God through speaking it on a consistent basis, the more our faith will grow. And faith, when acted upon, will always produce the desired results.

There shouldn’t be a day that passes that the Believer does not speak the Word of God. It is the Word that strengthens our faith, and releases the power of God into our situations and circumstances. By making daily confessions, we frame our worlds with the Word of God, shut the devil out of our lives, and plant faith in our hearts. It is the key to victory and supernatural manifestation.

Creflo Dollar: Stay in Faith!

Stay in Faith! - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Have you ever been faced with a situation that looked and seemed impossible? All of us will go through challenges and circumstances that test our faith to the utmost extent. The key to overcoming impossible situations is to stay in faith and refuse to move from your stand on the Word of God. Whatever you may be going through, there is a promise in the Bible that provides the answer. You simply must not waver when the enemy tries to distract your focus.

One of the keys to maintaining strong faith in the midst of afflictions and tough circumstances is to continually confess God’s Word. Confession of the Word not only releases the power of God into the situation, but it builds faith into your heart, which enables you to weather the storms of life. Man is a tri-part being—he is a spirit who possesses a soul, and lives in a physical body. The spirit of man is where faith resides and from which faith proceeds. When you confess God’s Word, you hear yourself saying the Scriptures and the faith of God is deposited in your spirit. The Word, when planted in your heart like seed in soil, will produce results.

Everything necessary for victory in life has been deposited in the born again spirit of a man. That means that when we face impossible situations we shouldn’t be waiting on God to do something; we should tap into the power that is already within us. Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Healing, deliverance, abundance, and prosperity in spirit, soul, and body are spiritual blessings that belong to us. When we make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, we obtain an inheritance of spiritual resources that are designed to equip us to dominate in the earth.

Getting a revelation of what already belongs to us is critical to being an overcomer in life. We even possess the spirit of might, which is the ability to do anything. The Word says that we have received the fullness of His power (John 1:16). Knowing this, we can no longer go through life defeated by what the enemy throws at us. Whether it is sickness and disease, poverty, lack, or emotional oppression, we have the victory.

Unleashing the power and faith of God requires consistently confessing God’s Word. This should be a regular part of every Christian’s life. Philemon 1:4-6 says that we should acknowledge every good thing that is within us. Essentially, this means we are to declare what we possess spiritually through our relationship with Jesus Christ. If we need healing, we should declare that the healing power of God is resident in our reborn spirits. If it is prosperity we need, we should confess that prosperity belongs to us according to the Word of God. To confess something means to acknowledge, or admit that it is true. When we confess the Word we are making a declaration that it is the final authority in our lives.

Confessing the Word is a key way to stay in faith, especially when the appearance of the situation looks bleak. Believers are to walk by faith, not by what they perceive with their five senses. The spiritual realm, what we possess in our spirits, and the Word of God are more real than anything we might see in the natural realm. If we refuse to come off the Word, we will see the end of our faith.

The primary attack every person faces when they are in a faith battle is the enemy attempting to use the things we perceive with our senses to move us from our stance on the Word. It is the time period between releasing our faith and seeing the actual manifestation that is where the biggest fight occurs. No matter what Satan does to try and distract you, don’t come off the Word. If you stay in faith and keep your mind focused on the Lord, He will bring you out with flying colors. Victory belongs to the person who refuses to let go of the Word.

Creflo Dollar: Aligning the Soul with the Reborn Spirit

Aligning the Soul with the Reborn Spirit - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Have you ever gone through a challenge such as a health issue, and while going through it, said: “Lord, touch my body so that I may be healed”? Or, perhaps you faced a financial challenge and called on the Lord to “touch” your finances so that you could experience prosperity. While these requests sound spiritual, they actually aren’t based on the Word of God. We must make sure that the things we pray and say are in line with the Scriptures so that we can get the results we are looking for. The truth is that everything we need to get manifestation in our lives is already available to us in our recreated spirits. We possess the very power of God within us. Our job is to align our souls with our spirits in order to draw out the resources we need for our specific situations.

Becoming born again is not just a free ticket to heaven, but it is much more. It is God’s will that we not only experience a future with Him in the kingdom of heaven after we die, but that we also experience heaven on earth as well. There are many Christians who are experiencing anything but heaven on earth; their lives are marked by the same failures and powerlessness of those who are not in a relationship with Jesus Christ. This simply shouldn’t be.

At the point of salvation, the Holy Spirit, Jesus, the kingdom of God, and all of its benefits become a part of our recreated spirits. Therefore, we possess everything we need from the Father; it’s all in us! The reborn spirit believes the Word of God and is in agreement with its promises; however, the problem lies with the unrenewed soul (the mind, will, and emotions). While our spirits become born again when we accept Jesus, our souls do not. We must make a quality decision to renew our minds with the Word of God so that our thoughts, choices, and feelings are submitted to the Scriptures. Only when we get our souls in line with the Word of God can we withdraw spiritual power from our spirits. This is the power that changes and rearranges our circumstances to reflect the blessing instead of the curse.

Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” and 2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” These two scriptures show us that the power of God, which contains healing, deliverance, prosperity, abundance, and everything else we could ever need, is resident in our spirits. We don’t have to beg and plead with God to do something for us because we possess the power to get results.

Getting our souls to come into agreement with our born-again spirits and the Word of God means making daily meditation on God’s Word a priority. Romans 12:1-2 says we are to be transformed by the renewing our minds so that we can prove what is the perfect will of God. We know that healing, deliverance, protection, and abundance are the will of God, so when we allow our thinking to be transformed by the Word, we can actually manifest these things in our lives. When we keep our spirits and souls aligned, our physical circumstances have no choice but to change.

There is no lack in your reborn spirit, which means everything you will ever need for success is in your possession. Faith in the Word of God, mind renewal, consistently confessing God’s promises, along with obeying what God tells you to do are the keys to unlocking the power of God’s kingdom in your life. You don’t have to wait another day for God to get involved in your situation; instead, focus on aligning your soul with your spirit, and you will begin to see your circumstances change.
