Creflo Dollar Grace and the Law

Creflo_Dollar

Creflo Dollar When we struggle with issues that are too big to handle on our own, maybe it’s time to turn them over to God. Many of us have a tendency to do everything ourselves, and then get frustrated when things don’t improve. On a spiritual level, this is called operating under the Law, instead of under grace. You may have heard the term “Let go and let God,” which simply means having the wisdom to allow Him to handle our problems as only He can.

God’s wisdom is not the world’s wisdom, and we can’t begin to understand His comprehensive plans and purposes. Instead of trying to force things to happen through our own works, relying on His grace yields better results. By their very nature, our works are dependent on the Law. Jesus is Grace, and trusting in Him empowers our lives.

During the time of Moses, the people didn’t have grace yet; they only had a pair of stone tablets to govern their actions. Anyone not following the Law was condemned to death. But when Jesus came and fulfilled the laws of old, He breathed life into them (Hebrews 10:16, NIV). Jesus’ laws are based on life, not death, and they govern our hearts.

It takes courage to step out in faith and trust that God’s grace will be sufficient to carry us through. But when we reflect on the implications of Jesus’ finished works, we can begin to see the big picture. God is love, and Jesus was the Father’s love in human form. His entire ministry on earth was about His love for us.

God’s love is big and powerful, victorious and all-encompassing. The world operates under the Law in fear and defeat, but under the Law the magnitude of His grace is not recognized. Jesus is Grace Himself, but the world doesn’t know Him or realize the need for Him in all situations. When we take Him into our hearts and realize that we no longer have to live in fear of condemnation, we also are set apart from the world (John 14:17, AMP).

Creflo Dollar Single and Whole

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

 

Creflo Dollar Whether you are single because you are divorced, widowed or simply have yet to connect with Mr. or Ms. Right, I urge you to cherish the life you have been blessed with. Contrary to popular belief you arenot half of a person because you are not married. You are complete in God, and set aside for His use. In this season in your life, realize your God-given uniqueness in the eyes of your Heavenly Father. There is no one else in the world just like you. And while you may not have discovered it fully, God has a specific plan and purpose for your life, no matter your age. There is something you can do, a void only you can fill. If you are not enjoying your singleness, and seeking God’s will for your life, you are doing yourself and others an injustice. This could be one of the best and most fruitful times of your life if you would wholeheartedly embrace it and allow God to use you to be a blessing in the lives of others.
It is not unusual for singles, especially Christian singles, to feel pressured to be in a relationship. Society, through entertainment and the media, depicts the life of a Christian single as lonely and boring. Many Christian singles say other Christians make them feel like outcasts as well. However, Paul who wrote a large portion of the New Testament was happy being single—even Jesus was single!
Your life as a single Christian doesn’t have to be filled with gloom. Look around. There are plenty of happy and fulfilled single Christians out there, so there is no excuse. If you are not doing so, start living your life to the fullest today!

Creflo Dollar Expressing Faith for Results

Creflo Dollar.

Creflo Dollar.

Creflo Dollar When you’re struggling unsuccessfully with a problem in your life, maybe it’s because you’re trying to handle it all on your own. Asking friends and family members for help might provide a temporary solution for a while. But, no matter how strong or able-bodied you may be, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Having faith can make the difference between success and failure, but many of us don’t understand the spiritual impact faith has on our lives.

The world can talk about having faith in yourself, faith in others, or faith in some sort of earthly doctrine. But faith in the Biblical sense connects us to God and His tremendous power to help us right at our point of need. True faith compels us to take a course of action, with no solid proof, visible to our own senses, that our desired outcome even exists. Exhibiting this kind of faith releases God’s power to intervene.

A number of stories in the Bible illustrate how faith produced results in people’s lives. One example describes that while Jesus was speaking to a crowd of followers someone suffering from health problems approached Him for help. “Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, ‘If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.’ Jesus turned and saw her. ‘Take heart, daughter,’ he said, ‘your faith has healed you.’ And the woman was healed at that moment,” (Matthew 9: 20-22, NIV).

Creflo Dollar Succeeding in Everything You Do

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar Two dictionary definitions of success are to achieve a desired outcome, or to reach a goal one has set for oneself. Depending on what we want out of life, success can mean many things and can be reached by multiple paths. These definitions focus on our own self-efforts to get what we want, but the Bible has a whole different perspective of success. Worldly success can be fleeting and hollow, but God wants us to have the true and lasting success that only comes from Him.
We’ve all heard stories of rich business owners who chased after money at all costs only to lose it all, famous movie stars who committed suicide, or fabulously wealthy entertainers who were miserable and lonely. What many people go their entire lives without realizing is that true success and prosperity comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ. Grace-based prosperity is rooted in our willingness to depend on His abilities, not ours.

God wants us to succeed in every area of our lives, not just financially. As our heavenly Father, He wants us, His children, to experience financial prosperity. But God’s definition of prosperity goes way beyond money. His will for us includes a healthy body and mind, a tranquil, born-again spirit, a happy marriage, and a peaceful family life (3 John 1:2).

The definition of grace is God’s unmerited, undeserved, and unearned favor, and our faith in it gives us access to it. When we truly believe in our hearts that God wants this kind of grace-based prosperity for us, it will eventually come to pass. Our present circumstances don’t matter at all when we let God take charge of our lives. We can learn from the Bible story about Joseph, who was sold into slavery but became highly successful because of God’s favor (Genesis 39:1-3).

Joseph could have turned bitter because of what life had thrown at him, and he could have strived through his own efforts to change his circumstances. But instead, he relied on the Lord, and God caused him to prosper in everything and become a ruler over Egypt. Joseph’s master trusted him because Joseph was honest, wise, and had a good work ethic and a godly character (Genesis 39:4-6).

God’s Formula for Success

creflodollarministries

creflo dollar

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

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

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!

Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar
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.
