Gaining Control over Your Emotions (Part 3)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God’s will for us is to be successful and prosperous in every way—including harnessing our emotions and keeping them under control. We are authorized to resist anything that is not His will; when we feel negative feelings rising up in us, we have power over them. However, if we do not know God’s will regarding our thoughts and emotions, we will accept those negative emotions and allow them to rule our lives. Our emotions are based in our souls, and our success in life is based on how successfully we dominate our feelings. If we have been born again, it is a misconception to think that we cannot help how we feel. We have direct authority from God in this area. Our success in keeping our feelings in check gives us emotional prosperity, which is what He wants for us.

2018 Ministers’ and Leaders’ Conference (Session 5)

By Taffi Dollar

Summary

Promotion comes from God, who is able to transform and elevate our lives in multiple ways. One example of this is found in the Old Testament story of Joseph, whose brothers sold him into slavery because they did not understand the calling on his life. When Joseph served in Potiphar’s house, God’s favor was on him and he prospered and was promoted; this continued even after Joseph was put in prison. The kind of supernatural progression that Joseph experienced still happens today, and it is independent of any human intellect or understanding. Before we entered into a relationship with Jesus, we were living under the heavy yoke of the curses that resulted from Adam and Eve’s sin in the garden of Eden. When Jesus came, He broke the curses and allowed believers access to supernatural promotion because of God’s grace. We have been lifted up, and we can now enjoy the kind of elevated life He wants for us.

Knowing God to Find His Will For Your Life - Pt 2

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

If we struggle with issues and problems, it may be because we are going through life without knowing God. A personal relationship with Him completely transforms our lives, and empowers us to do great things that we could never do on our own. Knowing God personally, instead of simply knowing about Him, multiplies His grace and peace in our lives. It strengthens our faith, brings forth the fruits of the spirit, and increases our love. In an age when most people are unsure of how they are supposed to live, a relationship with God reveals His specific will for our lives. This type of knowledge is an outflow of knowing Him. When others are wondering why they were born, spending time with God brings us clarity and purpose in this area.

Has The Holy Spirit Become Taboo?

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

As believers, we need the Holy Spirit operating in our lives. However, most churches reject Him because they do not understand Him. In light of this, we must ask ourselves if somehow we, too, have banned or excluded Him. The Holy Spirit is not simply a feeling; He is a real person and part of the Holy Trinity. We all were born with a God-given plan for our lives; the Spirit was sent to help us succeed in that mission. The reason Jesus was so successful in His ministry was because He completely depended on the Holy Spirit’s help. We have access to this same Spirit if we simply give Him permission to get involved with everything that concerns us.

Do We Really Need God, or Can We Live Without Him?(Part 6)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Many of us may have been taught that we must work hard to please God, so that He will do something good for us. This reflects the old-covenant mindset of the Law of Moses, which is a performance-based agreement. However, we are no longer under the law, but under grace. Under the new covenant of grace, the focus is not on what we do, but on faith in what Jesus Christ already did. We will never understand God’s true nature if we look at Him through the lens of the law. We can only see Him as He is when we look at Him through the lens of Jesus, who perfectly reflects God’s nature. God loves us and wants the type of personal relationship with us that was unavailable in the Old Testament; knowing Him intimately transforms our lives.

Radiating God’s Glory (Part 3)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Knowing what the Bible says is important, but our Christianity should not be defined by how much of it we know. Instead, our Christianity should be defined by the intimate relationship we have with God. This personal relationship gives us direct and unlimited access to Him, and helps us to deal with every issue we will ever face in life. Many people mistake a familiarity with Christian principles and mechanics for a real relationship with Jesus Christ; however, this does not reveal what He is truly like as a person. Spending time with God makes us unstoppable and unbeatable on our Christian journey, no matter what the enemy throws at us. Communing with Jesus begins to change us to the point where we radiate His glory, allowing others to see God when they look at us. Walking with Him transforms us at all levels and in amazing ways.
