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.

The Law of Receiving

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Although believers are no longer under the Law of Moses, we are still under the spiritual laws that have been in force since the world was formed. One of those principles is the law of receiving from God; this law operates by faith. Jesus made deliverance, healing, prosperity, abundance, and everything else we could ever need available to us, but to receive these things, we must understand the laws governing them. Faith comes into play when we hear the Word of God, believe and receive it, and continually study and meditate on it. Constantly focusing on the Word causes it to take root in our hearts and eventually bear fruit, similar to a farmer sowing a seed for a future harvest. The enemy is bent on keeping the Word from taking root in us. He does that by trying to distract us so that we change our focus. With this in mind, we must block out all distractions and ensure our hearts are receptive to receive God’s Word.

The Balance of Grace and Faith (Part 7)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

It is not God’s intent for us to know about everything He has made available but be unable to obtain it. There is definitely something missing when this happens, because life is not supposed to be like this for Christians. We should experience victory firsthand, not just hear about it. When it comes to the finished works of Jesus, God gets very personal with each one of us. Everything that grace has made available was made available specifically for us as individuals. God did not put Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden until everything had been finished and made ready for them. Likewise, the very fact that we are here indicates that God has finished everything we need for a victorious life.

The Balance of Grace and Faith (Part 6)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God never intended for us to live exclusively by either grace or faith; we need both, and He wants us to have the proper balance in this area. By themselves, grace and faith taken to the extreme are poisonous to our lives. If we combine them, we will see the manifestations of what grace has made available. Grace has made healing, deliverance, prosperity, and everything else we need in life accessible to us, but too many people see this as a fable. It is not God’s will for us to spend our entire lives being told about the victory and the provisions, but not knowing how to make them tangible, physical, and real to us. Two thousand years ago, the finished works of Jesus put into place everything we need. Our belief that everything is already done brings about the necessary adjustment in our thinking to cause them to happen for us on the physical level.
