Being Led by the Holy Spirit

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Life is a series of choices, and our decisions ultimately determine our destination in life. We can either barge ahead and make our own choices, hoping for the best, or ask for input from the Holy Spirit and let Him lead us. As Christians, the power of the Spirit is what takes us from average to excellent. When we get born again, we receive the Holy Spirit inside us; this is different than being baptized in the Holy Spirit and letting Him completely influence us. When we allow Him to go ahead of us and we follow, He empowers us to succeed. Speaking and praying in tongues is evidence that we are totally immersed in the Spirit. Yielding to Him and accepting this gift elevates our lives from the mundane to the supernatural.

The Grace-Given Power to Change (Part 7)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Everyone has something about themselves they dislike and would like to change, yet most people try to transform themselves through their own efforts. Genuine and permanent transformation only happens with God’s help. The process begins when we stop resisting Him and yield to the Holy Spirit. We must constantly listen for God’s instructions and guidance; hearing from Him is the result of spending time with Him and developing a relationship with Him. Following the Spirit’s lead is critical to any positive change; we must let Him get ahead of us to point out the way to go in life. Not even Jesus did anything without the Holy Spirit; He had the wisdom from above to give Him success. We have the same wisdom and power available to us that makes us successful.

The Grace-Given Power to Change(Part 6)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

Experiencing genuine transformation in our lives involves yielding ourselves to the Holy Spirit. If we have been born again, we already have the power to change; this power is something God has put inside us. When we need the wisdom to know what to do to be transformed, we can consult with the Spirit, who lives in us. He is the one who tells us the details of how to change, and advises us of what path to walk on in life; a relationship with Him positions us to receive this type of clarity and understanding directly from God. When we trust the Holy Ghost enough to let Him go before us and lead us, we begin seeing things happen that we could never cause to happen on our own, things for which we cannot take credit. God wants to bring us the true joy that only comes from being in Him. Letting go of any stubborn resistance to His prompting allows Him to do so.

The Grace-Given Power to Change (Part 5)

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

When we struggle with sins that hold us back in life, God’s grace gives us the power to change. Grace does not just cover up sin, but changes us from the inside and completely washes sin away. However, we must want to change for any transformation to take place; some people would rather simply stay the same. We could talk about changing all day long, but nothing will happen until we take the first step in our transformation. This begins with what we believe. There is a definite connection between our beliefs and our speech; recognizing this helps us make the right confessions that lead to positive change. Using God’s Word to guide us in our thinking and our speaking gives us success.

How to Take Possession of Your Healing

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

One of the basic principles of responding correctly to God’s grace is that if Jesus has already done something, there is no need for us to try to do it ourselves. This applies to many areas of our lives, including our healing. As Christians, we receive good health and take possession of it by faith. We have been healed on every level; when we believe this, we will know how to respond to the doctor’s report when it contradicts God’s Word. The final authority on our healing is not a physician’s diagnosis, but what God says. When things look grim, we need to know that it is God’s will for us to be healthy. Agreeing with this positions us to receive what He wants us to have.

The Victorious Power of Love

By Creflo Dollar

Summary

God loves us and wants good things for us. We must fully believe this. If we blame Him for the bad things that happen in the world, it is because we do not understand His nature. His love is powerful; believing in it gives us victory in life. God is for us and is on our side; Jesus shed His blood on the cross to make this permanent. Therefore, no adversity or bad situation is strong enough to overcome this promise we have. Having childlike faith in God’s love for us gives us what we need to overcome all of life’s temptations and troubles.
