The Balance between Faith and Grace

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Faith and grace are both critical in the life of a believer; properly balancing the two keeps us from going to the extreme either way. Straying too far toward grace makes us passive, lazy Christians; drifting too far toward faith leads to legalism and the belief that our performance can cause God to act. Understanding this takes us past religion and allows us to walk in the manifestations God that wants us to experience.

The Supernatural Power of Thanksgiving

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

There’s much to be said for a grateful heart. When bad things happen, thanking God may be the last thing on our minds; however, learning how to thank and praise Him unleashes tremendous power in the spiritual realm. Giving Him our thanks and praise for the good things He’s already done in our lives shouldn’t be a one-time event or an occasional afterthought, but a deliberate, continual lifestyle choice. Praising and glorifying Him during our darkest times causes supernatural things to happen that we can’t take the credit for.

The Thankful Heart

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The state of our hearts matters greatly to God. It’s certainly important to do the morally right things that please Him; however, He wants even more for us to have thankful hearts. Outward obedience just for appearance does not matter if we aren’t grateful. Maintaining our gratitude brings an anointing from God that removes burdens, destroys yokes, and changes our way of thinking for the better.

Living the Grateful Life

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we give God our thanks and praise the way the Bible tells us to, we release supernatural authority over whatever situation we’re facing. Biblical thanksgiving isn’t a worldly holiday tradition or a religious activity, but an everyday spiritual tool we use to live grateful lives. Thanking and praising God for what He’s done in each of our lives is a powerful weapon we use to defeat the devil. The thankful Christian unleashes powerful forces from heaven that cause things to work the way they should.

The Power of Confession (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

As believers, we must understand the power of our words. God spoke the universe into existence by His Word; we have the same powerful ability. What we declare actually empowers us to enforce God’s spiritual laws.

The Contrast: Self-Effort vs. Rest (Part 2)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

The comparison between the old and new covenants takes on significance when we understand where we’ve been. At one time, man was under the constrictive, condemning Law of Moses, but Jesus freed us from it and offered us grace instead. Christianity didn’t exist before Jesus Christ came; therefore, Christians who are trying to follow Old-Testament law are living by the wrong standards. If we’re looking for true peace and real rest, we must let go of our self-efforts and look to Jesus.
