Creflo Dollar: Conquering Lack

Conquering Lack - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: 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.

Creflo Dollar: Claim What’s Yours

Claim What's Yours - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

Prayer is the ability to communicate on a personal level with your heavenly Father. Unfortunately, people have allowed traditional teaching on the subject to rob them of the blessings produced by praying according to God’s Word. There are those who believe that God hears and answers any kind of prayer. I have even heard people say that they can simply speak to God as though they are talking to a friend or relative. While you can talk to God as you would your best friend, you must pray according to His will. This simply means praying what is written in God’s Word.

In order to receive answers to your prayers, it is important to make sure that you are praying what God has already said. In other words, you must speak His language. When you pray, don’t make the mistake of dwelling on the problem and spending most of your time telling God what’s not going right in your life; He knows what you are going through. The best thing to do is search the scriptures and pray the solution He’s already provided in the Bible.

For example, if you’re suffering from a sickness, don’t confess that you’re sick by saying, “I’m sick.” Instead, confess your healing by saying to yourself and others, “According to Isaiah 53:5, by His stripes I am healed.” When speaking directly to God, make it personal by praying, “Lord, Your Word says, ‘[Christ] was wounded for [my] transgressions, He was bruised for [my] iniquities: the chastisement of [my] peace was upon Him; and with his stripes [I am] healed.’ Therefore I believe I’ve received my healing in Jesus’ Name!” This prayer will get results when it is spoken in faith.

Also, you must enter prayer believing that everything you are seeking from God—healing, salvation, eternal life, deliverance and prosperity—have already been given to you through the authority of the name of Jesus. John 16:23 in the Amplified Bible says:

And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My name [as presenting all that I am].

If you are a Christian, Jesus has given you the right to use His name to make requests of the Father. The name of Jesus is your “claim ticket” to the promises of God. Just like the claim ticket you receive to pick up your item when you make a purchase at certain stores, it gives you access to the Father’s blessings. In the name of Jesus, you can go boldly to the throne of grace and obtain all that Jesus has already purchased for you as a result of His death, burial and resurrection.

When you endorse your prayers with the name of Jesus, the Father responds to you in the same way that He responds to His Son. Every prayer Jesus prayed was answered! You too can have every prayer answered by believing in the authority of the name of Jesus. Make a decision today that you will never end a prayer without first obtaining your claim ticket—the name of Jesus!

Creflo Dollar: Changing, Growing, Becoming!

Changing, Growing, Becoming! - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesI came across a quote today that profoundly impacted me. The quote, from Charles Dubois, epitomizes the life of a Christian. It says, “The most important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” Wow! I can’t think of a better quote that precisely and insightfully captures the true calling of Christianity.

Are you willing to sacrifice what you are now, in order to become what God has called you to be? If you’re a Christian, this is a question you need to honestly ask yourself. If your answer is no, you’ll remain stagnant in your current state—never experiencing the result of change or the beauty of growth.

For a born—again Christian, change is a necessary and perpetual facet of life. In order to become everything God has called us to be, not only do we have to embrace change, we have to learn to love it. God makes masterpieces on the canvas of our lives; and everyday we have the opportunity to work with Him in creating a work of art. By the leading of His Spirit, we must be willing to make the necessary adjustments so God can continue the work He started in us.

Do you know what happens to a person who becomes so complacent in their current existence they refuse to change? They never grow, and in extreme cases, they live their entire life with unfulfilled greatness. Don’t let that be your story!

Jesus was a great example of what it means to sacrifice what we are, for what we can become. He embodied change, and allowed His entire life to be a sacrifice. As a result, He now sits at the right hand of the Father. Notice, however, what He ultimately achieved began with His willingness to lay down all for God’s will.

Just think, if Jesus hadn’t willingly sacrificed His life, you and I would not have unrestricted access to the Father. I don’t know about you, but the sacrifice Jesus made motivates me to sacrifice what I am, so I can grow and become what God has destined me to be.

Do you really want to grow into the person God’s called you to be? Because if you do, then change is the order of business! Don’t be consumed with what you are right now; submit your life to God as a sacrifice, and focus on what you will become.
