The Grace-Given Power to Change(Part 6)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Experiencing genuine transformation in our lives involves yielding ourselves to the Holy Spirit. If we have been born again, we already have the power to change; this power is something God has put inside us. When we need the wisdom to know what to do to be transformed, we can consult with the Spirit, who lives in us. He is the one who tells us the details of how to change, and advises us of what path to walk on in life; a relationship with Him positions us to receive this type of clarity and understanding directly from God. When we trust the Holy Ghost enough to let Him go before us and lead us, we begin seeing things happen that we could never cause to happen on our own, things for which we cannot take credit. God wants to bring us the true joy that only comes from being in Him. Letting go of any stubborn resistance to His prompting allows Him to do so.

The Grace-Given Power to Change (Part 5)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we struggle with sins that hold us back in life, God’s grace gives us the power to change. Grace does not just cover up sin, but changes us from the inside and completely washes sin away. However, we must want to change for any transformation to take place; some people would rather simply stay the same. We could talk about changing all day long, but nothing will happen until we take the first step in our transformation. This begins with what we believe. There is a definite connection between our beliefs and our speech; recognizing this helps us make the right confessions that lead to positive change. Using God’s Word to guide us in our thinking and our speaking gives us success.

How to Take Possession of Your Healing

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

One of the basic principles of responding correctly to God’s grace is that if Jesus has already done something, there is no need for us to try to do it ourselves. This applies to many areas of our lives, including our healing. As Christians, we receive good health and take possession of it by faith. We have been healed on every level; when we believe this, we will know how to respond to the doctor’s report when it contradicts God’s Word. The final authority on our healing is not a physician’s diagnosis, but what God says. When things look grim, we need to know that it is God’s will for us to be healthy. Agreeing with this positions us to receive what He wants us to have.

The Victorious Power of Love

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God loves us and wants good things for us. We must fully believe this. If we blame Him for the bad things that happen in the world, it is because we do not understand His nature. His love is powerful; believing in it gives us victory in life. God is for us and is on our side; Jesus shed His blood on the cross to make this permanent. Therefore, no adversity or bad situation is strong enough to overcome this promise we have. Having childlike faith in God’s love for us gives us what we need to overcome all of life’s temptations and troubles.

Jesus Peace Equals Successful Peace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The world is a place filled with stress, confusion, and chaos. As Christians, the only way we can succeed in this kind of environment is by living in the peace that comes only through Jesus. There will always be plenty of opportunities to let trouble and threatening situations make us afraid; however, fear cannot get the upper hand if we have peace of mind. No matter what the circumstance, we find a peace that goes beyond our human understanding when His presence is in our lives. In a fearful, insecure world, we find what we need for real success through a relationship with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. He is our Shalom. Partaking of Him, who is the bread of life, gives us what the world will never have—peace.

Understanding How to be Content

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Contentment is pleasing to God, and it is a spiritual trait we need on our Christian walk. A good attitude is linked to being content; it combines being at peace in whatever circumstances we find ourselves with a willingness to work to keep improving ourselves. We can be this way when we are in Christ, because being in Him gives us the inner strength to face any situation life may throw at us. The apostle Paul suffered great hardship, yet he was completely content regardless of whatever happened; we can be the same way. Contentment does not mean satisfaction with staying the same and refusing to change; it means being satisfied with the temporary situation until God changes it. We were created with a void inside us that only Jesus Christ can fill. He is the source of all truth—therefore, the only true contentment to be found is in Him.
