The Kingdom of God System: A Higher Way of Living

The Kingdom of God System: A Higher Way of Living - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesDid you know you can live a stress-free life in the midst of economic hardship, financial crises, and shortage? As amazing as it may sound, you can thrive and prosper in the midst of hard times. It just depends on the system in which you are operating. Those who belong to God have a higher way of life available to them because of their covenant with God. When you know your rights and the promises of God outlined in His Word, you will have absolutely no fear in the midst of chaos.

Make no mistake about it, the world’s system is failing. What is the world’s system? It is Satan’s way of doing things. Based on selfishness and fear, the world’s system is the opposite of God’s Kingdom. For example, when you need money, the world system tells you to go borrow or use credit to meet your needs. Its goal is to get you in financial bondage, not freedom. On the other hand, the Kingdom of God system is based on seedtime and harvest. When you have a financial need, you sow a seed and reap a harvest. God’s way of providing for His people has no strings attached.

Another example of the difference between these two systems is in the area of healing. The world’s way says when something is wrong physically to flood your body with medicine. While there is nothing wrong with getting the necessary treatment from a doctor when you need it, God’s way of doing things brings lasting healing. His wisdom, healing scriptures, and specific instructions to you regarding your health are better medicine than any doctor can provide.

God’s Kingdom is your safety net in the midst of turbulence. He has a promise for every situation you may face in this world. Job 5:22 says, “At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the Earth.” What a promise! That means when lack and shortage seem to loom all around you, you will be the one having the last laugh! Psalm 91 is also full of promises that guarantee protection from danger and destruction on every level.

The key to operating in God’s system is seedtime and harvest. You do not have to worry where your next meal is coming from or how your bills are going to be paid when you know your God. Your job, in God’s system, is to seek His way of doing things, which means sowing seed. When you focus your efforts on being a seed-sower, everything else will be added to you. There is nothing too hard for God, and as long as you have seed in the ground and are living your life in obedience to His Word, you have a harvest of abundance coming your way! When the world is freaking out, wondering what will happen next, you will be safely positioned in the secret place of the Most High God!

Developing a Kingdom mindset is going to take getting in the Word and renewing your mind. All our lives we have been trained to operate according to the world’s system; we must unlearn those old ways and habits and receive a new “download.” God’s thoughts are higher than the world’s and so are His plans for your life. You have a right to total life prosperity, in good times and bad. All you have to do is receive it by faith and learn to operate in God’s Kingdom.

Creflo Dollar: You’re Such a Know-It-All!

You're Such a Know-It-All! - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

Making major life decisions is sometimes a difficult task. Questions like, Which job should I take? Is this the person I should marry? Should I buy this house? or Should I join this ministry? often trouble people who are searching for direction in life. Fortunately, God wants you to know the answers to all of these questions and any others you may have. In other words, God wants you to know it all!

Before Jesus died on the cross, He promised His disciples that He would send them a Helper. The Holy Spirit was the Teacher and Friend who came to lead them and guide them into all truth (John 16:13). The good news is that the Holy Spirit is still here for Believers today!

The mark of a true Believer is the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. You must have real fellowship with Him in order to have your prayers answered. You may not know which way to go in your situation, but the Holy Spirit knows. And because of your relationship with Him, He is willing to share what He knows with you. In fact, 1 John 2:20 says, “…ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye know all things.”

To develop an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and receive His guidance and direction, you must meet a few key requirements:

  1. You must be born again. Before the Holy Spirit can lead you, you must invite Jesus Christ into your heart and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. When you do this, God recognizes you as one of His children, and He speaks to you and blesses you.
  2. You must develop a spirit of meekness. Meekness is the strength to exercise humility and self-control even while you’re suffering an injustice. When you walk in meekness, God will show you what to do in every situation.
  3. You must have faith. Faith is having confidence in God and His Word. In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, you must first believe wholeheartedly that His words have power, and that acting on His words will change your circumstances.
  4. You must fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Don’t be afraid to talk to the Holy Spirit. Ask Him questions and seek His help. He is a Friend who wants to reveal information that will make you successful.
  5. You must learn to be quiet. Many people have so much drama, stress and worry in their own spirits that it becomes difficult for them to hear the Holy Spirit. But the Bible encourages you to cast all of your cares on Jesus (1 Peter 5:7). When challenges arise, you must learn to say, “You know what? I cast that care away. There’s nothing I can do about it, so I’ll give it over to Jesus and let Him handle it.” By giving your worries and concerns to Jesus, you quiet your spirit. And when your spirit is quiet, you’re better able to hear God when He speaks to you.
  6. You must walk in love. If you want direction from God, you must learn to walk in love. Walking in love means living without malice and anger. When you walk in love and keep God’s commandments, you demonstrate that you love Him. And He wants nothing more than to talk to those who love Him.

Together, these principles will put you in position to receive direction from the Holy Spirit, Who wants to make a difference in your life. Acknowledge His presence and His power, and you’ll discover that, through Him, you know everything you need to know to make good decisions and live the way God wants you to live!
