Taking Charge over Your Emotions

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Mastering our emotions is critical, because our entire lives are based on whether we control our feelings or they control us. Our feelings and thoughts spring from our souls; therefore, success or failure in life is based on what happens in our souls. When we study the Bible and let the Word renew our minds, we learn the self-control to master our emotions and take charge in this area. This enables us to avoid the trap of getting stuck in something that happened in the past, unable to move forward. God’s will is for us to prosper and be successful in every arena of life. When we refuse to let our emotions rule us, He can move us in the direction He wants us to go. Exerting our God-given authority over our emotions empowers us to succeed the way He wants us to.

Taking Authority over Your Emotions (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

We all experience emotions every day, but we do not need to allow them to move us away from God’s will for our lives. We have been given authority over our feelings; they do not have authority over us. The enemy is always plotting against us. One of his strategies is to attack our emotions. His goal is to get us away from being ruled by the Holy Spirit and move us toward being governed by our emotions. God wants us to master life, not for life to master us. We master life by refusing to allow our circumstances to dictate the way we feel. The battle we fight is in our minds, and we either win or lose based on how well we exercise self-control over our emotions.

Taking Authority over Your Emotions

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

As believers, we have authority in many different areas, including our emotions. Our entire lives are based on whether we can control our emotions, or whether they control us. We all have feelings, but letting them get the upper hand can cause problems. God designed us to master life, not to be mastered by it. We were made in God’s image, not just to reflect His love, but also to reflect His power and authority. God has a call on our lives, but we will not end up in the place where He wants us to be if we let our emotions dominate us. To fulfill His mission for us, we must take charge in this area.

How to Win over Depression

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Feelings are a part of everyone’s lives, but as believers, we do not have to be dominated by them. It is God’s will that we control our emotions and achieve emotional stability. We have been given authority in every realm and we have the power to defeat negative emotions, including depression; therefore, we are accountable for the way we feel. This is something we need to know, so that when our feelings threaten to sweep us away, we can resist the urge. Our emotions can either move us closer to, or away from, God’s will for us. They actually control the direction of our lives. Knowing what the Word says about our feelings allows us to master life instead of letting life master us.

Dealing with Your Emotions

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Most people think that emotions cannot be controlled, but Christians have been given authority over our emotions. God gave us emotions as a gift, but we should not allow them to govern us or control our lives. Feelings of depression, rejection, or inferiority always have the potential to overwhelm us, but there is no reason to be emotionally out of control. The enemy uses our emotions to try to move us away from God’s will for our lives, so we must be vigilant against attacks in this area. When we find ourselves in a situation, we must not allow it to dictate how we feel. Instead of letting our emotions deal with us, we have the power to take charge and proactively deal with our emotions. Doing this gives us victory.

Get Out of the Boat (Part 2)

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

Having the courage to respond to God’s call requires a willingness to exercise our faith. When Jesus called Peter to get out of the boat and walk on water, Peter obeyed, although he could never had done so in the natural. Like Peter, we can do supernatural things when we are willing to leave behind the familiar and the comfortable, and move toward the unknown. Living the kind of life God wants for us is not for the spectator, but for the person who trusts Him enough to get involved in His plan for their lives. To free ourselves from others’ opinions and live outside the box, we cannot be afraid of change; instead, we must embrace it. God is a big God with no limitations, and He wants to do something different that exceeds our expectations. We allow Him to do this when we rely on Him to lead us forward.
