Don’t Question God, Just Trust Him - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

When problems occur in your life, do you ever question God and ask “why?” For example, “Why is this happening to me?” or “Why do I have to go through this?” Even the most devoted Christian has asked these questions at some point in his or her walk with God. These moments of doubt have happened to all of us, but rather than worry or fall into the trap of questioning God when challenges come, see troublesome times as opportunities to develop a closer relationship with the Father.

A Believer has the answer to every challenge or problem he or she may face in life—the Word of God. It is your source of comfort and strength during the storms of life. However, allowing your emotions and frustrations to override your faith and trust in God creates a sense of panic and gives way to a victim mentality. This will only keep you stuck in your situation.

So how do you change your response to trouble? By making the Word of God your final authority and understanding that God is your only source for strength and victory. Recognize that no problem is greater than His power to overcome it.

Do not let challenges devastate you, whether financial, marital or physical. The Word never guaranteed that after being born again, the rest of your days would be easy and stress-free. The moment you devote your life to serving God, it’s inevitable that trials and tribulation will come. But your relationship with God is the key to conquering them. The enemy will do everything in his power to prevent you from becoming totally dependent on God and trusting in His Word. But Psalm 125:1 says,“They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.”

When you meditate on God’s Word and accept that challenging times will come, the Word will create in you a foundation by which to build your trust in God. This increases your ability to be unmovable by the enemy’s attacks.

Having a positive attitude when confronted with negative situations makes all the difference in the world. Even though this is easier said than done, stay positive and continue communicating with God daily through prayer, praise, worship and the studying of His Word. Don’t question His love for you, but stay focused on His promises.

Your efforts to trust God rather than question Him will go a long way. By demonstrating your faith through continually confessing the Word over your situation and believing with your heart, you will begin to see His power work in your life. Remember that God isn’t a respecter of persons, but He is a respecter of faith (Acts 10:34).

Don’t give in to your problems; God’s Word has prepared you for all the trials and temptations you will face. As you grow in your walk with the Lord, your trust in Him will develop as well. Don’t condemn yourself if at first it seems hard to trust Him. God understands the struggles that Believers face but He has also given you His Word, which is the only resource you need to be victorious over any circumstance you face. Use every opportunity to build your faith in God’s love for you and His ability to bring you out. Instead of breaking down, blaming God and asking, “Why?” be confident in Him and know that He is working out every detail of your life.

Creflo Dollar: Using Wisdom with Words

Using Wisdom with Words - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

Words have the potential to hurt. Whether consciously or not, we all at one time have hurt or offended someone with our words. Whether at your workplace, conversations between close friends or simple exchanges with the cashier at the grocery store, each interaction has the potential to make or break a person’s spirit. As Christians, we have the responsibility to speak with wisdom and understand the value of our words.

God cares about everyone, and it is important to be mindful of what we say to others. Walking in love and considering another person’s feelings before speaking are vital to the spiritual growth and maturity of a Christian. You can avoid offending others when you use wisdom with your words and operate in love at all times.

Even if the interaction seems insignificant, it can still have an impact on another person. Whether you are a husband who is not using discretion when verbally expressing distaste for the dinner your wife prepared, or you are a manager brushing past a coworker while giving a thoughtless greeting. Everyone we come in contact with is a potential recipient of the negative or positive emotions we possess at that given time.

It is important to check your motives and think before you speak. Are the words you speak coming from a heart of love, or one of selfishness? Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” No matter what it is you are attempting to communicate, getting your point across starts with choosing your words wisely. Your words have the potential to either give life or cause something to die in another person, so use wisdom. Moreover, be certain that you speak without malice and without intending to invoke anger or negative emotions in another person. In essence, positive and effective communication with those you come in contact starts with you!

Allowing your emotions to rule your verbal responses is the ticket to provoking offense in others. Anger and frustration is not an excuse for speaking negatively to someone. Especially when you know that your words could hurt the other person. The Bible says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (James 1:19). If you are in a tense or frustrating situation, take a moment to listen before responding. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you keep your emotions in check.

When you have the love of God and His Word on the inside of you, it will show through in your attitude and behavior toward others, particularly in your words. Meditate on the Word so that when you face challenging situations with others, you can rely on the Spirit of God to guide your speaking and help you with your choice of words. That way, you have every opportunity to exemplify the kind of responses and love walk that please Him.

I encourage you to communicate in love and watch the change it will make in your relationships! You’re not without assistance. God is there to help you master your words and make the most of your conversations with others.
