Mastering Your Emotions with Joy

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Our emotions can actually move our lives in a particular direction, either toward God’s will or away from it. As Christians, we must not become overly spiritual by pretending our feelings do not exist; they are real and they are an important part of our souls. God gave us emotions, but we must master them instead of allowing them to master us. Negative feelings move us away from the mission God has for us in life, but positive emotions like joy have the opposite effect. To succeed in life, we must learn to harness our emotions. Our feelings are determined by the way we think, whether godly or ungodly. Therefore, we must allow our thoughts to be controlled and directed by the Word of God.

Mastering Your Emotions with Peace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Our emotions can either take us to a bad place that is away from God’s will for us, or to a good place that moves us toward where He wants us to be. Everyone has a choice of what feelings they will allow to stay in their minds. God has given believers authority over emotions; therefore, we get to decide where we will go. Most people do not understand how feelings work, and they think they cannot control them. However, we are all accountable for the way we feel. Christians who know God’s Word in this area have the power to take charge of their emotions and refuse to be dominated by them. The emotion of peace is from God, and this is one of the most powerful weapons we can use to find emotional stability. Peace is found in His Word, which is where we need to go when negative feelings come on us.

Eliminating the Bondage of Fear

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

In these end times, fear is prevalent everywhere we look. The way to combat this negative emotion is by standing on the promises found in God’s Word, and choosing to believe them. Terror is not God’s will for us; therefore, we must not tolerate it. As believers, we live in the world but we are not part of it. This means that while others are fearful, we are faithful; and while others are in bondage, we are at liberty. We can stay at peace while going about our daily routines, because we trust God to keep us safe. When fear spreads like an epidemic, His Word is the perfect antidote against it.

How to Overcome Hurt

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Everyone has emotions, and everyone at some point in time will experience hurt. We live in a world filled with hurting people, and hurt people tend to say hurtful things to others. Unkind, cruel words from others can hurt us inside; hurt feelings rob us of God’s blessings. The potential for getting our feelings hurt is real, and the enemy wants to bring us to a place where we do not want to deal with this painful emotion. However, God’s will is for us to be delivered and healed from negative emotions. As born-again Christians, we know hurt must be dealt with immediately. The Word teaches us how to handle it when it happens. Using the believers’ authority we have over our feelings allows us to let go of the emotional pain and move on with our lives.

The Good Fight

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

In our spiritual warfare with the devil, using the Word of God as a weapon and standing on our believers’ authority helps us “get our fight back.” This battle is all about maintaining the victory that Jesus has already won for us. When He went to the cross, He obtained healing, deliverance, prosperity, soundness, answered prayer, and every other victory we will ever need in life. Fighting the good fight requires that we recognize the victories that have already been made available to us, and maintain them through our stance of faith. The enemy tries to deceive us into thinking we must work to get what God has already given us, the same way he deceived Adam and Eve. We must be on guard against this. As long as we stand firm on God’s promises, regardless of what is going on around us, we win.

Knowing God (Part 3)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we ponder the question of knowing God in our Christian walk, we must realize that being a Christian is more than just following intellectual principles. If we are not careful, we can get so caught up in the mechanics of Christianity that we would fail to recognize Jesus if we came face-to-face with Him. Being a Christian is supposed to mean that we have a personal relationship with Christ; however, this may not be true for everyone. Simply knowing about God is not enough; we must take this to a deeper level until we develop a true knowledge of Him. Familiarity with His nature and character reveals that He is not an angry God who punishes us and makes us sick, but a God of love, grace, and mercy. These character traits were perfectly portrayed in Jesus, who is the identical image of the Father. If we ever wonder what God is really like, all we need to do is to look at Jesus.
