Everyone experiences rough times in life. But having trials doesn’t mean that you’ve missed God. On the contrary, your trials are often a sign that you’re on the path to your destiny. When breakthrough is near, trouble often appears to sidetrack or distract you to keep you from receiving what is waiting for you. Although your trials may be difficult, you must realize that you already have everything you need to triumph over them. You’ve been equipped by God with a measure of might, and that is what will help you successfully overcome anything that sets itself against you.

What exactly is “might”? Might is “the power, authority or resources wielded.” It is your God-given ability to do whatever is necessary to accomplish a particular task. In the Bible, David used might to kill the giant, Goliath (1 Samuel 17). Likewise, Daniel used his might to tap into God’s wisdom to read the handwriting on the wall (Daniel 5:13-29). If you want to operate in this same kind of might, you must first recognize its source: the Word of God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 describes the various weapons available to help you win any battle. These weapons—the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit—all work together to enable you to stand against any opponent. When you firmly establish God’s Word in your heart, you are suiting up for battle and arming yourself with God’s weapons. And this is how you turn on the power of might.

First John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world….” When you become born again and allow the Word of God to take root on the inside of you, your victory in every battle is assured; you can overcome the world. That’s why in the face of every battle, you must believe that your victory is already at hand.

It is not enough just to know the Word, however. You must also know God’s heart behind the Word in order to activate the power of might in your life. The Bible is a written expression of God’s love, and it contains the truth about His character. When you know God’s character, you know His heart. And it’s knowing God’s heart—His true intentions and His will for you—that gives you confidence in Him and turns on might.

In every situation that you face, think to yourself, What do I know about God’s character? The first thing you know from God’s Word is that He loves you unconditionally and wants you to triumph in your battles (2 Corinthians 2:14). Next, you know that you have been commanded to love God with all of your heart, mind and soul (Matthew 22:37). Since God requires this kind of love from you, He is faithful to love you in the same way. Because He loves you, He will protect you and bring manifestation into your life. Walking confidently in the knowledge of God’s love keeps you walking in the power of might.

Might is a direct result of your revelation of God’s love. So if your doctor gives you a bad report or your harvest hasn’t yet come in, think about how much God loves you and wants the best for you. Keep a positive attitude, and don’t let doubt enter your mind. Anytime you question God’s ability or willingness to intercede on your behalf in any situation, you doubt His love for you and you hinder might from operating in your life.

Battles are real, but victories are even more real to the Believer. Even in the midst of your trials, position yourself right where God wants you to be—in the center of His love. Believe in His love and walk in the power of might today!

Creflo Dollar: Fear Not

Fear Not - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Fear is the reciprocal of faith. Just as faith opens the door for you to receive blessings from God, fear enables the works of the devil to wreak havoc in your life. Simply put, faith connects you to the promises of God, while fear connects you to the things you fear. There have been reports of people who were so afraid of dying in a plane crash, for example, that they actually died that way. And it was no coincidence. Their fear of death connected them to the accident. The same is true of people who are afraid of contracting cancer or some other terminal illness. Their fear of sickness is stronger than their faith in healing, and they ultimately contract and die from whatever disease they feared.

Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Likewise, fear comes by hearing, and hearing the words of Satan. When dealing with fear, you need to realize that Satan uses the things found in the natural realm against you. He tries to convince you that the things you can see and hear are more real than the truth of God’s Word. When you depend solely on what you can see and hear rather than on what God has said, you leave yourself open to deception.

Several years ago, I was involved in a near-fatal accident. Although I walked away unharmed, I was so afraid of injury and death after the accident that I became overly cautious when driving and I constantly worried about the safety of my family. If I had continued down that path, the things that I feared would surely have come to pass in my life. That’s exactly what happened to Job. His fear connected him and his family to tragedy (Job 3:25-26).

After I realized that I had given Satan access into my life, I confronted my fears. By doing that, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that all fear is born out of concern for self. Fear is rooted in selfishness. Therefore, to weed out fear, I first had to deal with selfishness. I challenged myself to locate and eliminate selfishness in every area of my life.

If you struggle with worry, fear or anxiety of any kind, you are not alone. Millions of people are so consumed with fear that it keeps them from walking in the peace and fullness of God. You must look closely at your life to discover areas where you may be dealing with fear. Then develop and maintain a God-consciousness by being more focused on God and His Word than you are on “self.”

In these last days, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to walk in fear. In fact, Luke 21:26 says that men’s hearts will fail them because of fear. But Believers can live fearlessly in these perilous times. Regardless of what may be happening around you, don’t allow fear to come into your life. God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). You have nothing to fear!

Make a decision today not to tolerate fear on any level.
