God’s Formula for Success

Living in the kingdom of God has tremendous benefits. As Believers, we must make it a priority to do things God’s way so we can access what He has made available to us through His Word. There is a formula for success in the kingdom of God, and if we follow it, we will get consistent results. This requires a renewing of our minds and a willingness to do things differently. God’s method of operation is completely different from the world’s way. It requires faith, diligence, and consistency in executing certain spiritual principles. By following His plan, we can see manifestation in our lives, not some of the time, but all the time.

The first step to manifestation in the kingdom of God is to speak God’s Word. Many times, a person’s heart is full of faith but that faith never gets released into the atmosphere because he or she doesn’t actually say what God has said! Speaking the Word of God is critical to getting results in the kingdom.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and if you’re not saying anything, you’re not creating anything. Keeping the Word in our mouths at all times is vital because of the creative power of words. Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering.” Our “profession” is our confession, or what we profess from the Word of God. We should make this a continual practice as the apostle Paul instructs. Continually speaking God’s Word through regular confessions also repels the enemy. Satan cannot stand against a Believer who has a revelation of the power of speaking the scriptures.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says, “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” We can see from the scripture that “talking” the Word should be done on an ongoing basis.

The second step in God’s formula for success is to meditate on God’s Word. Meditation is simply pondering, considering, and muttering the Word of God. When we meditate on God’s Word, it expands our capacity for faith and transforms our ability to believe and receive. By meditating on the Word we fix our minds and set our hearts on the desired result we are seeking.

Psalm 1:1-3 says that the man who is empowered to prosper is the one who meditates on the Word day and night. This is the same approach we should take while spending time seriously pondering the scriptures. We can meditate the Word by applying it practically to our lives, putting ourselves in agreement with it, speaking it, and realizing its integrity. Meditating on the Word makes our way prosperous (Joshua 1:8).

The third step in God’s formula for success is to act on the Word of God. Faith without works is dead, which means it is not enough to simply hear the Word and believe it, but we must also act on it in order to get to our destination. Faith is a practical expression of our confidence in God and His Word. Many times, Christians get preoccupied with the spiritual side of things and neglect to do anything practical in the natural realm. When God speaks a Word, whether through the written scriptures or a rhema Word spoken to the heart, it requires some type of corresponding action on our part.

God’s formula for success is fail-proof. Speaking the Word releases faith, meditating on it builds the image of it on the inside of you, and stepping out on what the Word says connects you to the promised manifestation. The result is success and absolute victory in every area of your life!

Creflo Dollar Designed for Relationships

Did you know that God created mankind for the purpose of establishing relationships? Genesis 2:18 says that in the beginning, He created Adam, and decided it was not good for him to be alone. He created Eve, and said she was help that was “meet” for him, meaning she was someone suitable (or proper) for him. Why did Adam need help? He needed help to develop out of self-centeredness. With Eve in his life, God knew Adam would always be challenged to consider someone other than himself.

God established the institution of marriage between Adam and Eve for the purpose of eliminating their “aloneness.” We need companionship for reasons far greater than just satisfying a lonely heart. With Eve by his side, Adam was forced to fight his selfishness. By loving someone else, he would become a better man.
This does not apply only to married people. This applies to every relationship we will ever have as human beings, including our relationship with the Father Himself. Yes, He wants to have a relationship with us! We were designed for relationships. Relationships far exceed having fun times together with friends. God views relationships as covenants.
We all need to learn to establish covenant relationships. We need someone in our lives to help us develop. For example, single people need to establish covenant relationships to help them grow out of selfishness. All relationships are designed to help us mature in unconditional love—the God-kind of love.
God created us in His image; however, we can never totally be like Him with a self-centered mindset. God is love. Therefore His foundation for everything is love, not selfishness. Although it is good for us to love ourselves, it is not good to disregard everyone else in the process! Healthy self-love serves as the foundation for the love we distribute to others. And we cannot truly love ourselves and others without first receiving that God loves us with a relentless, unfailing, everlasting love.

Creflo Dollar The Unity of God’s Perfect Design

Creflo_Dollar

Creflo_Dollar

Author: Creflo Dollar
If asked to describe your nationality, how would you respond? Would you answer, “I’m Black, I’m German, or I’m Hispanic?” Or would you say I’m an American? When asked about their culture most Americans respond by describing how America is a melting pot of races, ethnicities, and cultures freely pursuing the American dream; whatever that is! While most people amplify cultural differences, very rarely do they discuss the common bond that binds us all regardless of our color, culture, or belief system—we’re all Americans.
When we separate cultures in an attempt to define, or set ourselves apart from other races, in essence, we’re subtly operating in a spirit of division; the same spirit which has wreaked havoc on this nation, causing separation, rather than merging the cultures.
In Germany, a person from that country is considered to be German. Likewise, a person from Italy is considered to be Italian. However, when an Italian or German person becomes an American citizen, their cultural distinctions no longer exist—they’re both Americans. The same is true for a born—again Believer. Once you’re born again, you’re part of the household of faith; a brother or sister with anyone who is of the same household. You’re no longer White, Black, Italian, Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian, or whatever ethnic or religious distinction you formerly embraced. You’re a Christian!
When we discover who we are in Christ, and gain a solid understanding of our covenant with God, we’ll begin to thrive in the unity of God’s perfect design. Otherwise, we will continue to magnify our differences, and a spirit of division will remain in our society, corroding its moral fiber.
Although this topic may appear very insignificant, in my opinion, it emphasizes the importance of our regarding the Scriptures in everything we do. Our forefathers founded this country according to the principles of the Word of God; however, the foundation of our nation has been breached, which is why we’re continuously trying to figure out why division and racism exists.
Although we magnify our differences, the Word says Believers are part of one body. So if there’s no cultural distinction in God’s eyes, why does it exist in ours?

Creflo Dollar You Are Heaven Ready!

Is there a distinction between the spirit and the soul? Man is a spirit, he possesses a soul, and he lives in a physical body. You are a spirit being created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). Your soul is comprised of your mind, your will, and your emotions (your thinker, your feeler, your chooser). It’s your psychology, your personality. How you view life is right up there in your soul.

First John 4:17, AMP, tells us this: “In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.” As Jesus is in heaven, so are we in this world. That is your true identity. You have to go even beyond your family name and come to the place of recognizing that you are a spirit being, created in God’s image. That’s first base where identity is concerned. You are not your body. You are not your soul. You have to understand and believe that.

We cannot continue to do what the Church has done for decades, probably for centuries. We cannot continue to use spirit and soul interchangeably, as though they are one. This is a big deal! There is a clear distinction between your spirit and your soul. When death takes place, your spirit—the real you—along with your soul, moves out of your body. So when people die on this earth, they’re still alive in either heaven or hell (2 Corinthians 5:8; Luke 16:23). Why? You can’t kill a spirit! That’s the part of you that’s just like God! It’s the zoë life of God, eternal life (1 John 5:11).

Creflo Dollar Developing Trust in God

Creflo_Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Several years ago, I experienced a very interesting situation. I was dealing with a business contractor and became very frustrated because I thought a particular product was going to be turned over to me, but it did not work out that way. Since the product was already paid for, frustration set in and my sleep was disturbed. I became agitated and spent the entire night trying to figure out how I would legally resolve the situation. Not once did I acknowledge the true solution—God and His Word.
The next morning I woke up feeling the same frustration. I began to pray in the Spirit, and God interrupted me. He said, “Why are you allowing this situation to frustrate you and steal your peace?” I told the Lord all about how I thought it wasn’t fair and so forth. He said, “I want to teach you something about trust.”
He began teaching me about trusting Him. Proverbs 3:5, in the Amplified Bible states, “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” I was leaning on my own insight and understanding. Once I placed my trust and confidence in God’s ability to handle the situation, I was no longer frustrated and I received the solution I needed.
I have discovered that some of the greatest manifestations in the Bible came as a result of complete reliance and confidence in God. I have also discovered that many times people believe God, but they don’t trust Him. Actually, I believe they sometimes confuse the two. When we trust God, we rely and depend on Him to work out the situation.

Creflo Dollar – Emmanuel

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

How many of you have ever felt like God was not there—that His presence had deserted you altogether? Some of you may say, “How can God be on my side when I’ve failed Him so many times in my life? How can God be on my side when I’m not quite living right? After all, He’s a holy God.”
Well, I’m going to tell you how God can be on your side. He’s on your side because of what happened on the cross. Because of the blood of Jesus, God has committed Himself to never leave you, nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). A divine exchange took place on the cross. Jesus took our sins and released the presence of God to us so we could take His righteousness and receive the presence of God.

Under the old covenant Law, when people were obedient to God His presence would stay with them; but if they disobeyed God, His presence would depart from them (Numbers 12:9; 1 Samuel 16:14). But under the covenant of grace, it doesn’t work like that. Because of what Jesus did on the cross, it sealed the presence of God in our lives forever (Ephesians 1:13).

God’s presence is ours for eternity. That one statement changed my life. I used to think His presence was conditional—that He was with me when I was doing “good,” but not with me when I wasn’t doing so good. But God is not just with you only when you feel you deserve it. God is with you even when you fail. He’s with you when you’re up and when you’re down. Don’t ever evaluate the presence of God based on your circumstances. Your circumstances don’t dictate whether or not God is going to be with you. There’s no circumstance strong enough to make God leave you! Psalm 118, verse 6 declares, “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”

Some of you may be thinking, “If God’s commitment to me is so strong, why does it appear that I’m not benefitting from it? If He’s for me and with me, no matter what, why am I going through certain things?” You have to learn how to take full advantage of His presence. To experience God’s presence, you’re going to have to increase your consciousness of His presence by practicing the presence of God.

So, let’s talk about how to practice God’s presence. You have to begin to train your mind to think about Jesus more. You can choose to think about a problem, or you can choose to think about Jesus. He keeps you in perfect peace when you keep your mind on Him (Isaiah 26:3). When you do this, you’re getting Him involved in your everyday situations in life. You become so consciously aware of Jesus that you’re setting yourself up for Him to show up and perform some things you didn’t expect. When you get in the Word, you’re exposing yourself more to the presence of God. When you attend Bible Study every week, you’re exposing yourself more to the presence of God. Something supernatural happens when you expose yourself to God’s presence. The breakthrough that you’ve been struggling to receive supernaturally begins to occur when you become exposed to the presence of God.

The presence of Jesus is all that we need. Begin to get in a routine of saying, “God is with me.” Anytime fear arises, remind yourself that God is on your side. Even when you don’t feel like He’s there, acknowledge His presence. It’s not possible for Him to leave you, not by any means! He won’t do it! Jesus, Emmanuel, is God with us. Hallelujah!

“And they shall call His name Emmanuel—which, when translated, means, God with us” (Matthew 1:23,AMP).

Get a copy of my classic series Excelling in His Presence, and learn how to get Jesus involved in every situation that you find yourself dealing with. All of the confidence and bold
assurance you need to excel in life will come because of the presence of the Lord. God is on your side, and if God is for you, no one or nothing can be against you! (Romans 8:31).

Creflo Dollar Why I Hate Religion

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

I’m a preacher, and I hate religion! That’s right. I said it. Why? Religion portrays the image of what it defines as godliness but has no power to back it up. It thrives on the concept of attaining right standing with God through our works while downplaying what Jesus has done for us. Unfortunately, religion has caused many people to actually turn away from God and the promises contained in the Bible. A concentration on religion has been responsible for death, destruction, and strife among people of all ethnicities and backgrounds. It is why denominations cannot get along, and it is what provokes extremists to carry out suicide missions in the name of God. Religion is the counterfeit of having a real relationship with the Lord.
Now, let me make another bold statement: God hates religion too! Jesus used every opportunity to blast the religious leaders of His day for carrying out vain traditions that meant nothing. Just read Matthew Chapter 23, where Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for saying one thing but doing another and for following blindly after rituals and Law-based traditions done only to make them look good. Religion is made up of man’s ideas, interpretations, and prejudices based on selfish desires, attempts to control others, and a stubborn determination to be right. Where is God in that? Religion completely takes God out of the equation and replaces Him with the god of “self” in the form of self-effort, self-righteousness, and self-gratification. True Christianity is not a religion; it is a relationship with Christ. Now, that I love!

Now, more than ever before, people need to hear the truth about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a message of hope, not condemnation; liberty, not religious bondage; grace, not self-reliance. Most of the things we have grown up hearing about God are completely incorrect! We have come to relate to God as an angry taskmaster who is waiting for us to mess up so He can strike us down with a lightning bolt. We have gotten so far away from what Christianity is really about and have presented a picture of God that actually turns people away from wanting to know Him. It is time for us to get back to the simplicity of the Gospel and share the truth about the love and grace of God with the world.

Creflo Dollar The Purposes of the Law and Grace

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Many times we do not understand the deep plans and purposes of God. Without the divine wisdom to comprehend these spiritual truths, we won’t understand how to operate according to the new covenant of grace. For instance, instead of receiving what Jesus has done for us, we will be confused and try to accomplish what only Jesus can accomplish in our lives. We will try to make Him do something that He has already done. However, when we understand the purposes of the Law and grace, we can fully embrace Jesus Christ and His finished work.
The Law could not accomplish what Jesus did. The Law is perfect, but it can’t make us perfect. It sheds light on our sin, making our sin and trespasses more apparent (Romans 5:20, AMP). The problem with the Law is its perfection. It is so perfect that we cannot keep all of it. And to disobey one of the laws (the Ten Commandments and the 600 plus laws that derived from them) is to disobey them all (James 2:10, AMP). When we believe in Jesus, He gives us right-standing with God that we could not earn on our own.
We needed grace to be free from the bondage that came with trying to fulfill all the Law. John 1:14 states, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” When Jesus came to the earth, He was full of grace and truth. He was and is grace embodied (or personified). He came and delivered people from all types of bondage. He came with sacrificial love and tender mercy. Therefore, the grace of God has a face, and it is the face of Jesus Christ.

Creflo Dollar Imitating the Father

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Author: Creflo Dollar

How do we imitate the Father? One of the ways we imitate Him is by speaking faith—filled words. An example of this is in Genesis 1:1—5. God saw the Earth dark and void, and instead of complaining about the situation He said, “Let there be light.” He spoke into existence what He wanted to see. He had faith in His words and things obeyed Him. God gave us His creative ability—to speak faith—filled words. The creation story clearly demonstrates how we are to imitate the Father. By doing so, we can change the negative circumstances in our lives.

Another way we imitate God is by patterning ourselves after Jesus, who always imitated the Father. For example, a violent storm came as He and the disciples sailed across a lake. While Jesus slept peacefully, water poured into the boat and the wind beat against it. The disciples panicked, and awoke Jesus. They asked Him, ‘”… do You not care that we are perishing?’” (Mark 4:38, AMP). Jesus got up and rebuked the wind and the rain, saying “…Peace, be still.” And suddenly there was a great calm. He spoke faith—filled words that changed the situation, just as God did in the beginning. Jesus asked the disciples, ‘”…Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust?)”‘ (Mark 4:40, AMP).

When I was a child, I was influenced by society. Often I behaved like those I admired, some of whom were people who were not following God. I did not know that by following them I was imitating the world. I later learned that a worldly perspective fosters fear instead of faith.

For years, I lived without knowing the truth. I did not know my true identity in Christ because I did not know God’s Word. But someone introduced me to Jesus, and after making Him my Lord and Savior, I discovered I had been adopted into God’s family. That decision changed my destiny! I eventually learned how to view life from God’s perspective. As a son of God, I desire to be a reflection of Him (Ephesians 5:1).

My question for you is, who are you imitating? Are you following God or the world? If you have decided to follow God, act like Him. Speak like Him. Imitate His character, which is found in His Word.

The Bible is not a history book. It is the manual for life. When you study the Word of God, you develop a personal relationship with the Father. Then, you begin to gain understanding on how to mirror Him. When you imitate the Father, like Jesus, you will make a mark in the lives of others that can never be erased!
