How to Never Be Hurt Again

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

If we’ve ever been hurt in a relationship, or are hurting now, we must learn how to deal with it so that we can recover and move on. We have an enemy who works through others to hurt us and paralyze us in our past. However, believers have been given authority and power over the enemy; this includes over his ability to hurt us. We walk in freedom from hurt by dealing with it God’s way, not the world’s way.

Victory Over Satan and Demons (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we consider the spiritual battle we’re fighting, we must remember the focus of our fight. Because of what Jesus did, we are not fighting for victory, but from victory. No matter what it may look like in the natural, the devil and his demonic forces have already been defeated; the fight is now focused on our minds and whether or not we believe this. Therefore, the essence of spiritual warfare consists of understanding and maintaining the victory that has been obtained. We do this by renewing our minds according to God’s Word, which enables us to see what is going on around us through the lens of the Bible instead of through a worldly view. We are not going up against humans, but against the forces of hell that have already lost the war and been stripped of all authority and power. Cloaking ourselves in the protective armor of the Word not only gives us a fighting chance, but helps us win

Overcoming the Regret of Fatherhood Failures

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God has specific instructions for dads that some men can struggle with; however, we must never let our mistakes open us up to shame or condemnation. Many fathers who feel they have failed on multiple occasions can fall into the trap of believing the devil’s lies that they are failures. The strategy to overcome this is to believe what God says instead—that they are righteous and redeemed, regardless of their shortcomings.

Victory Over Satan and Demons

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Believers are engaged in spiritual warfare. We have a real enemy straight from hell who is determined to kill us; however, although we need to know how to do battle, we do not need to fear. The devil’s ultimate objective is to get us to walk away from God, but he cannot do so when we’re vigilant and watching for his strategies and sneak attacks. It is critical to understand that although we are saved, we still must fight. Standing solid in the Word of God gives us a tremendous advantage; we are fighting a defeated enemy who is well aware that he has been beaten. Satan wants deceit and falsehood in our lives; we combat that by cloaking ourselves with the various truths found in God’s Word. Darkness cannot stand against light; the light of the gospel will always be able to break up and disperse the devil’s dark deception.

Maintaining Faith During a Dry Season

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

We all have seasons in our lives in which nothing seems to be happening. This is to be expected; when we find ourselves in a dry season, we maintain our faith as believers by trusting in and relying on God. There are plenty of things we can trust and rely on, but we succeed when we make God, and God only, our confidence and hope. His Word is the doorway to manifestations; studying and applying it is the solution to moving through whatever situation shows up. Conversely, neglecting it and paying more attention to the things of the world causes hardness of heart and blocks what we are waiting to experience. God can do powerful things in our lives, but only if we cooperate with Him by focusing on what He says and screening out all distractions. By steadfastly working our faith until we see what God has promised, we will see results.

Faith and the Gospel

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

There is a definite connection between what we believe and what the gospel says. When life throws challenges at us and worldly systems fail, faith in God’s Word and knowing how to rightly divide it gives us victory over adversity. The kind of genuine trust we need goes beyond religion and gives us a way to be practical in applying the Word to everyday situations. Using precision in our application of the Gospel of Grace—which is also the gospel of Jesus Christ—gives us an ability to succeed on every level that the world doesn’t have. Our faith is a powerful tool; however, for it to be effective we must use our words to put it to work. We do that by declaring the promises God made that apply to our specific situation. God already has a provision waiting for us that will address everything that happens to us; the finished works of Jesus have made available to us all the answers and solutions we will ever need.
