Provision in a Seed

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

The Word of God is as important to us as seed is to a farmer. Planting physical seeds in good soil eventually produces a harvest, and the same can be said for planting the seed of the Word in our hearts. Everything we need in life has been made available to us in that seed, but it is up to us to plant it and allow it to grow. When the Word is presented to us, there will inevitably be opposition to it; this comes from the enemy, who will do everything in his power to keep it away from us and prevent us from seeing manifestations in our lives. When we operate in the natural realm and do not see results, we can switch to the supernatural realm through the Word of God. In this realm, there are no limits, and we are the only ones able to stop God’s promises from coming to fruition. We are farmers in this realm, and the Word is guaranteed to produce harvest if we let it.

The Glory of Thanksgiving

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

In the Old Testament, “glory” often referred to the tangible presence of God. In these last days, it can mean the manifestation of God’s Word. As believers and children of the supernatural, we know that there is no supernatural without His Word. When we plant His Word in our hearts, we set ourselves up for supernatural manifestation. Thanksgiving has much to do with manifesting this supernatural harvest, and giving thanks is a powerful way we can change whatever circumstances we find ourselves in for the better. We can find something for which to give thanks every day, and God’s grace enables us to live a thankful life. The more we learn about His favor, the more we can be thankful for all that grace has made available to us, whether or not we see it right away.

How to Receive Provision

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

We have been delivered from the Law of Moses, but this does not mean we have been delivered from all laws. We are still subject to the laws of the land and the physical laws that govern the natural world. The most important laws that still apply to us, however, are God’s laws of provision. Blessings, healing, and prosperity operate under the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Conversely, sickness, poverty, and things that are not God’s will operate under the law of sin and death. When we want to receive provision from Him, we must understand that there is a principle that governs the receiving of what grace has made available. Everything we need was made available to us two thousand years ago, and understanding the principles behind how God’s provisions are manifested in our lives will cause them to become evident.

2017 Grace Life Conference (Session 1)

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

Currently, one of the greatest issues in the church is spiritual blindness. If we are blind to what Jesus has already accomplished, then we will continue to live according to religious precepts. One of the meanings for the word “religion” is a return to bondage, which is certainly not where we want to go. Religion uses fear and guilt to motivate people, but these emotions are part of a covenant which is now expired. As Christians, we can attend church regularly and love God, yet still be blind. We work hard to earn blessings from God, but when our spiritual eyes are opened, we can receive what Jesus has already made available. When we realize the benefits of a life lived under grace instead of under the Law of Moses, we will be truly free.

No More Self- Righteousness (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

Thinking that our self-efforts are necessary to make something happen in our lives comes from performance-based religion. This is the exact opposite of trusting God and what He has already done for us through His Son. Some people flip-flop between faith in God and faith in themselves, but trusting in ourselves instead of in Him amounts to self-righteousness. We do not have to “clean up our act” first to be good enough for God to love us. He already demonstrated how much He loves us by sending Jesus to die on the cross and be resurrected for us. Under the old covenant of the Law of Moses, the people worked hard to make themselves presentable to God, but this required constant effort. We could never make ourselves righteous based on our own merits, but now we do not have to anymore; Jesus Christ did everything that needed to be done to make us holy, righteous, and able to stand before God.

Do I Have to Confess My Sins for God to Forgive?

By Creflo Dollar

SUMMARY

When we wrestle with the question of whether we must confess our sins for God to forgive us, we should remember that Jesus already offered us forgiveness two thousand years ago. The assumption that we must confess our sins, first, tells us that forgiveness depends on our own efforts. Forgiveness is part of the finished works of Jesus, but most Christians think they are required to continually confess their sins. Their fear is that if they do not do this, they will not have fellowship with God and they might die with unconfessed sin. A true understanding of His forgiveness reveals that He has already dealt with our sins. There is always a place for confession but, for believers, this should never be an attempt to get our sins forgiven. We confess and speak openly to our heavenly Father because we are already forgiven.
