Creflo Dollar: Relentless Faith

Pastor Creflo Dollar

Relentless Faith - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

What does it mean to have “bulldog faith”? It is the kind of faith that is characterized by what I call, “doggonedness.” It is the type of belief that grabs on to the promises of God and refuses to let go. It is relentless. Every Christian is called to live their lives by releasing the faith of God into their situations and circumstances. Everyone will face temptations, trials, and tests, but only those who refuse to let go of what God has said will see the end of their faith. A relentless Christian is the one who gets results in the Kingdom of God.

When you look at that word, relentless, it really denotes a sense of steadfastness, perseverance, and a refusal to give up, cave in, or quit. It simply will not come off the promises of God. It is focused in its pursuit of the final outcome—no matter what it goes through or faces. A person who is relentless is a real soldier where the things of God are concerned and in the way they handle the devil. This person is not easily swayed by what things look like or how they feel. They have locked into the faith of God, and you had better believe manifestation is on its way!

The key to walking in relentless faith is to refuse to entertain unbelief. Faith will not work when you have doubt in your heart. You must stand firm on the promises from God’s Word and reject any thought, suggestion, or inclination that goes against what you believe. The enemy will bring negative thoughts to your mind, but you can override them by knowing and quoting the Scripture.

Jesus gave an important formula for getting your faith to work—every time! He said it is critical to believe you receive what you pray for, when you say it, and do not allow doubt to invade your heart and mind. When you do this, you can move mountains! To be relentless in your faith means fighting doubt and unbelief the moment they come to your mind, filling your heart with the Word of God, and speaking it at every turn with boldness, authority, and consistency. Doing this, creates a pounding spiritual force that blows obstacles out of your way.

To operate in this kind of faith, you must know who you are in Christ. Christians have been made righteous by the blood of Jesus and are no longer under the dominion of sin and the curse. Consequently, you have a right to every covenant promise in God’s Word, including the benefits of faith-based living. In fact, living by faith is a requirement, not an option for those who are a part of God’s Kingdom.

Walking by faith is an adventure that will take you on a treasure hunt through the Word of God. Your faith is your ammunition against Satan and will carry you through tough times. Refuse to give up, even in the face of adversity. When you have relentless, bulldog faith, nothing will be withheld from you!

Creflo Dollar: Don’t Compromise

Don’t Compromise - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Now more than ever is the time to allow the Word of God to become the final authority in your life. Societal norms and values have declined to accept the perversity and lies of the Devil. As Christians, our success is based on whether or not we choose to walk in the Spirit (the Word of God) or to conform to the image of this world’s system, which leads to death. Just because something is accepted by a majority and is “politically correct” doesn’t make it right. The only proper standard of what is acceptable is the Bible; it’s time to start taking it seriously. Satan is striving feverishly to infiltrate the minds and hearts of people by suggestively packaging sin—presenting it in such a way as to make it seem okay. Sexual immorality, for example, is being fed to the public through news broadcasts, television sitcoms and music videos. If you pay attention too long, they might begin to seem acceptable and even appealing to you. Those who speak out against such imagery and messages are labeled as “intolerant” and “politically incorrect.” Just because something is accepted does not make it acceptable in God’s eyes. All forms of sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage are wrong (Hebrews 13:4; Galatians 5:19). Many of the things that the world accepts are vile in God’s sight (Romans 1:18-32). Hebrews 4:12 says that the Word judges, exposes and analyzes all things. Therefore, as believers, we should let the Word be our judge of what is right and wrong. If the Bible says something is incorrect, then it is incorrect—period! Holiness is “being of one mind with God.” Hebrews 12:14 instructs believers to pursue peace and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. Adopting the attitudes of the world’s system will inevitably set you against God and position you to miss the blessings He has for you. Don’t allow the desire to “fit in” blind you to the truth. Satan wants to dupe you into believing that his way of thinking and doing is the way to go; however, fitting in with his crowd will cost you (Proverbs 26:2; Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Romans 6:23). As a Christian, you should strive to renew your mind to the truth of God’s Word (Romans 12:1, 2) so that you can conform to His image and be able to discern truth from error, no matter how “politically correct” it seems to be.

Scripture References: Hebrews 13:4, Galatians 5:19, Romans 1:18-32, Hebrews 12:14, Proverbs 26:2, Deuteronomy 28:15-68, Romans 6:23, Romans 12:1, 2

Creflo Dollar: Becoming a Servant

Creflo Dollar

Becoming a Servant - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

One of the major ways we demonstrate our new life in Christ is by becoming a servant, which means to commit ourselves to living for God instead of ourselves. In other words, we become God-focused instead of self-focused. As servants, we are willing to be inconvenienced for the sake of advancing the Kingdom of God. Jesus lived a life of servanthood. His servant’s heart was demonstrated in everything He did and everywhere He went. Everyone He came in contact with was affected by His determination to serve God and others. Before He was crucified, He showed His love for His disciples by washing their feet. John 13:3-5, 12 -14 describes the scene: Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded…So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. It is evident that Jesus had no problem taking on a servant’s role. When we become Christians, we have a responsibility to adopt a lifestyle that demonstrates the character of Jesus Christ. The foundation of Christianity is love because God is love. When we learn to become servants, we build our character and cultivate the love of God in our hearts. God has always shown His love to us through serving us. His ultimate act of servanthood was sending Jesus to die for our sins (John 3:16). This great act of serving mankind is why we, in turn, should serve Him and others. Here are some characteristics of servanthood: 1. Servants make themselves available to God to serve. 2. Servants do what is needed, even when it is inconvenient. 3. Servants see interruptions as opportunities to practice serving others. 4. Servants pay attention to the needs of others. 5. No task is beneath a servant. God will not force you to serve Him; the choice is yours. But you have to present yourself instead of waiting for someone to ask you to serve, or for a miraculous sign to show up. God is always concerned about the condition of your heart. Therefore, if your heart is not willing to serve Him, ask Him to help you in this area. Additionally, ask yourself, “Am I living to please God or myself? Am I concerned about what people think about me or what God thinks about me?” In doing so, you may discover other areas in which your servanthood can improve. For example, God may be leading you to demonstrate the heart of a servant with your family and friends, in your work place, in an outreach ministry, or more frequently at your church. Obey whatever He is directing you to do. He will never forget what you have done to serve Him and others. By making a quality decision to walk in His love, and place His agenda before your own, you will be a genuine demonstration of the character of Jesus, and reap rewards here on Earth and in Heaven.

Creflo Dollar: The Blueprint for a Changed Life!

Creflo Dollar

The Blueprint for a Changed Life! - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Do you believe you will have what you say? If so, what words are you allowing to come out of your mouth? For instance, how do you talk when you are in non–religious settings, around people who are not Christians? Do you evaluate your words, or do you just “shoot the breeze,” so you will not appear too “deep” to others?

I want you to take stock of your words, because whether you realize it or not, your life is the sum total of all the words you have spoken. Your words set the very tone for your life. In fact, so powerful are your words, that you can literally talk your way into victory or defeat.

Some of you may say, “It is not that serious. I have spoken a lot of things that have never come to pass.” But as I like to say, if you have been spared negative or tragic situations, it is because of the grace and mercy of God, and the power of intercession! Somewhere, God has somebody praying for you!

The reason your words carry so much weight is because you are created in the image and likeness of God Himself. Your words have creative power, just like God’s words. When you speak forth words you actually release a spiritual force like dynamite! That is how serious this thing is! If you have spoken negative words in the past, you can change the course of your life right now by speaking positive words.

Psalm 45:1 states “… my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer” (New International Version). This means when you speak words, you are writing them on your heart; and whatever is conceived in your heart will eventually come out of your mouth and manifest in your life.

Why am I hammering this point home so hard? Because the only way to change your life is to change the way you think and speak. Your mouth should be used as an instrument for life, not death. For blessing, not cursing.

To begin this process, take inventory of your words. How do you speak every day? Listen to yourself. If you constantly use perverse or negative words, repent. Make a course–correction by allowing faith in God’s Word to impact your speech. How do you develop faith in His Word? By confessing it, every single day. Also, make the decision to root out any sin that may be present in your life. Remember, you can say all the right things, but secret sin in your life will separate you from God. Be quick to forgive and quick to repent.

One of the reasons Jesus was so powerful when He walked the Earth, was because He only spoke faith–filled words. As a result, He experienced immediate manifestation when He spoke. This is why powerful, positive words are the blueprint for a changed life! Take heed to these practical truths and before long, you will be enjoying life and seeing good days!

The Kingdom of God System: A Higher Way of Living – by Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar

The Kingdom of God System: A Higher Way of Living - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Did 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: It’s Not About You

Creflo Dollar

It's Not About You - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

I’ve come to realize that the number one reason why people in the body of Christ aren’t experiencing the manifestation of their faith is because of a nasty monster called “selfishness.” In essence, they believe that “it’s all about them.” Selfishness is concerned with self-preservation and protection. It literally cuts you off from the blessing of God because it keeps you from allowing Him to be God in your life. Instead, you crown yourself god and trust in your own abilities more than your heavenly Father’s. In addition, selfishness causes you to operate from a position of always wanting to take the advantage, rather than give the advantage to someone else. Living a selfish life will stop the anointing of God from working for you.

All sin is selfish. It is impossible to be “in sin” without also being focused on your needs and desires. Think about it. When you do something that goes against the Word of God, you’re not thinking about how others will be affected. You certainly aren’t thinking about how God feels about your actions, at least not enough to stop engaging in the activity. If you are struggling with an area of sin, selfishness is in operation. That’s because all sin is based on the platform of self-exaltation and carnal gratification. From adultery and fornication to gluttony and strife, every work of the flesh has selfishness at its root and is propelled by the spirit of fear.

Selfishness is the exact opposite of love. The fruit of the Spirit includes love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. When you allow the works of the flesh—adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness and revellings—to dominate your life, you are subject to the kingdom of darkness. On the other hand, when you stay in the circle of love, you stay in a place of protection from the attacks of the enemy.

The only way to get rid of selfishness in your life is to cultivate the love of God. Jesus said in Matthew 22:34-40:

But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Whether your realize it or not, the love laws are God’s “general orders” to the body of Christ. Jesus is our commander in chief. He has commanded us to first love the Lord God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength; and secondly, to love our neighbors as ourselves. When we keep these commandments at the forefront of our thinking and purpose to act on them whenever we get the opportunity, selfishness has no choice but to get out of the way!

If you find that your life is being ruled by selfishness, decide right now to take a stand against it knowing that fear is its driving force. Just like faith needs love to operate, fear needs selfishness to exist. The good news is that you have been delivered from the spirit of bondage to fear (Romans 8:15), and you don’t have to live a fear-filled, selfish life.

Jesus has come to set you free from fear and selfishness, so you have the liberty to love God and others freely. First John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love .” Just like any endeavor that you are striving toward, so it is with the love of God. By cultivating the fruit of the spirit in your relationships with others, you will become so proficient at the love of God that selfishness will have no room to continue its existence in your life. The saying is true: Practice makes perfect—perfect your love walk today!

Creflo Dollar: In the Blink of an Eye

Creflo Dollar

In the Blink of an Eye - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

For centuries, Christians and non-believers alike have heard the statement, “Jesus is coming back soon!” After thousands of years of hearing the same thing and not seeing Jesus’ return, you can understand why the world has turned a deaf ear to the subject. The Bible even mentions that in the last days scoffers would come, questioning His return (2 Peter 3:3-4). Fortunately, the Word provides clear evidence of our Savior’s return, and how those who follow Him will be “caught up” to meet Him in the air. This Second Coming is known as the Rapture, or “the catching away” of the church.

Although the word Rapture does not appear in the Scriptures, it is used by the church to describe the event mentioned in 1 Thessalonians 4:17: “…Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air….” This scripture makes it clear that there will be a simultaneous, worldwide disappearance of Christians. First Corinthians 15:52 says that it happens in “the twinkling of an eye.” Blink your eyes…that’s how quickly it will take place!

There are other biblical phrases that refer to the “catching away” of the church. For instance, in John 14:3, Jesus said, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” Other statements made by Jesus and the apostle Paul regarding the Rapture can be found in Luke 21:28, Titus 2:13, Hebrews 9:28 and 1 John 3:2-3.

The Rapture is not a new concept. According to scripture, three Raptures have already taken place: Enoch (Genesis 5:24); Elijah (2 Kings 2:11); and Jesus (Luke 24:50-51). The fact that three people have already gone to heaven without experiencing physical death should remove any doubt surrounding the fourth one soon to take place in the body of Christ.

No man knows the hour or the day when Jesus will return (Matthew 24:36-37). However, the Word doesn’t say that we would never know the season of His return. God has proven over and over that He doesn’t do anything in the earth without first revealing it to His prophets (Amos 3:7; Ephesians 3:5). Therefore, I am convinced that we will know when this blessed event will occur.

If you are not born-again and living a spirit-filled life, then you are not Rapture- ready; you will be left behind to endure the horrors of the seven-year Tribulation period. The only way to prevent that from happening is to make Jesus the Lord of your life. Then, focus your attention and affection on the things of God instead of on the things of this world (Colossians 3:2).

If you are Rapture-ready, stay ready! Continue to walk in the Spirit and operate in the power of God. An excellent way to maintain those things as a priority in your life is by cultivating the expectancy of Jesus’ imminent return: “Every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as [Jesus] is pure” (12 John 3:3). Remember, it can happen at any time, so keep watch!

Creflo Dollar: The Grace to Live a Holy Life

Creflo Dollar

The Grace to Live a Holy Life - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesBy: Creflo Dollar

The idea of living a life that completely agrees with the Bible is far-fetched to people in the world. In fact, many Christians don’t really believe that they can live holy lives. Unfortunately the norms and values of society have crept into the church and have begun to shape the way Believers think and live their lives. This should not be. God has called us to a higher standard of living because He has equipped us to live this type of life. His grace is the supernatural empowerment to carry out what He has required of us. We must renew our minds to this truth, particularly as it relates to sexual purity. Many Christians are living sexually immoral lives and fail to realize that they possess the power to overcome sexual sin; however, it takes renewing the mind and developing faith in His grace to overcome these things.

Sexual sin is one of those areas where many Believers continue to struggle. There are some who knowingly and willingly engage in sexual sins such as fornication, adultery, pornography, and homosexuality, knowing that these things are forbidden by God. Others genuinely desire deliverance from these behaviors and are trying to overcome them through will power. It is important to understand that will power is not enough to defeat sexual sin. It is only through the grace of God, the blood of Jesus, and the renewing of the mind that a Christian can begin to see the fruit of holiness in his or her life.

Ephesians 5:27 paints a picture of the image God expects the body of Christ to reflect, “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” This may seem like a tall order, especially when it says “without blemish,” but God has given us the ability to live sin-free lives.

Sexual immorality is a “fruit” of our old, unregenerated nature—the nature we possessed before we got saved. When we become born again, however, we receive a new nature—the nature of God Himself. This new nature doesn’t produce the fruit of sexual immorality because God doesn’t produce sexual immorality. If we have the nature of God in us, our spirits are not manufacturing sin in any form. If Christians are engaging in sexual sin, it is because they have not allowed the Word of God to change the way they think. They are still allowing their lives to be governed and dictated by the behavior they participated in before they got saved.

We have to understand that we don’t just cruise into Christ-likeness. It takes effort and a decision on our part to align our souls (the mind, will, and emotions) with the Word of God and to cooperate with what our recreated spirit wants to do, rather than our flesh. This is a daily choice that must be accompanied with decisions that line up with the Bible. To be holy means to imitate the Father in thought, word, and deed. When we focus on imitating the Father on a daily basis, we will begin to automatically separate from our old behaviors. By focusing on what we should be doing, we will find ourselves abandoning those things that are judged by God as wrong.

First Thessalonians 4:3 says, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication.” Sexual sin violates our bodies, the part of us that has been bought by God for a price, and should be used to glorify Him. Jesus lives in every born-again person, and when we sin sexually, we violate His dwelling place. When we walk in the fear of the Lord, however, we cannot commit sexual sin.

There is a grace available to us to be victorious in this area of sexual purity, but we must release our faith in it so that it can work for us. We no longer have to be in bondage to sexual sin because of the power God has given us to overcome it. Meditate on the Word concerning sexual purity so that your mind can be renewed. God’s standard of living is attainable because we have everything we need to achieve it through our relationship with Jesus Christ and the power of His grace operating in our lives.

Creflo Dollar: Walk in Your Authority

Creflo Dollar

Walk in Your Authority - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

You don’t have to put up with the devil’s oppression any longer. God has empowered you with the anointing to remove burdens, destroy yokes and to be an overcomer. The devil is a burden that can easily be driven away by exercising your God-given authority.

God has given you His Word and His Spirit as a defense against the devil’s schemes. You’ve been clothed in the armor of God so “…that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11). You have everything needed to defeat the devil whenever he shows up at your door. He will keep showing up because you possess something that he desperately wants—your God-given authority to rule and reign in the earth.

When God created Adam, he gave him dominion and authority over the earth (Genesis 1:26, AMP). However, when Adam rebelled against God, he turned his authority to rule over to the devil. Satan then had control over everything except the throne of God (2 Corinthians 4:4). Since Satan contaminated the ground with sin, God couldn’t destroy Adam and make another man from the dust of the earth. Aren’t you thankful that He had plan? He came to the earth as a man. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, he defeated Satan and took back our authority to rule (Hebrews 2:9, 14), and we have been restored to our rightful place of authority.

Jesus has all power and authority in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18). Since we were raised with Him, we have all power and authority as well (Ephesians 2:4-7). Therefore, do not neglect your right to rule and reign in the earth. Every time the enemy tries to attack you, consider it an opportunity to exercise your power over him. You have the authority to declare what is lawful and unlawful in this earth, and to permit or to forbid things on the earth—even death (Matthew 16:18-19, AMP).

I challenge you to begin making demands in Jesus’ name. John 14:13-14 says, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” The word ask means “demand.” What you demand in Jesus’ name (from the Word), He promises He will do. Understand that when you make a demand, you aren’t demanding that God do things. Instead, you are demanding that the devil submit to the Word, to loose his hold and to stop his operations against you.

Faith is involved in exercising your spiritual authority. You must base your faith on what the Word says, not on circumstances. When circumstances do not change immediately, some people become discouraged and begin to speak doubt and unbelief. This only gives the devil dominion over their words, which ultimately defeat them. Don’t hand over your authority to Satan through your words. Instead, break the power of the devil by walking in your authority!

Creflo Dollar: It’s All in Your Mind

Creflo Dollar

It's All in Your Mind - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar MinistriesAuthor: Creflo Dollar

Your mind holds tremendous creative ability. That’s why God gave you an imagination—so that you could create mental pictures, add faith to them and see those pictures manifest in your life.

Once you have an image in your mind of something you want to do or become, nothing can stop that image from coming to pass. Whatever you meditate on will become the blueprint for your reality. Too often, though, Christians suffer from “stinking thinking.” They give the devil control of their minds by meditating on thoughts that do not line up with the Word of God. Then they reap the results of the curse because their carnal mindset produces the fruit of the flesh described in Galatians 5:19-21.

To keep the devil from gaining a foothold in your life, you must develop a sound mind that is completely controlled and directed by the Holy Spirit. In other words, you must renew your mind with the Word of God. Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” When you become born again, your spirit instantly changes; you are recreated in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17). Yet your mind is not recreated. You must conform your thinking continually and on purpose; it is not an overnight, one-time event. Renewing your mind to God’s Word every day is vital. By reading the Scriptures and meditating on them thoroughly, your thinking will be transformed to line up with the mind of Christ. And when you have the mind of Christ, you can do anything!

When you set your mind on the Word of God, you’ll also experience soul prosperity and peace (3 John 2). The Bible says that the issues of life flow out of the heart (Proverbs 4:23). The word heart in this scripture actually refers to your soul—your mind, your will and your emotions. If you can control your mind, you can control your destiny. But it will take a quality decision on your part to dedicate your life to changing the way you think.

First Thessalonians 5:23 says, “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” It is God’s will that your mind, will and emotions be whole, with nothing missing or broken. As a Believer, you can receive a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). It is then up to you to enforce and maintain soundness of mind by keeping your thoughts and imaginations in line with God and His Word (Isaiah 26:3).

When your mind is focused and directed by the Word, you will position yourself for success. You’ll have wisdom, discernment, insight and the ability to accomplish anything. A renewed, Word-controlled mind guarantees abundance and prosperity in every area of your life. Don’t let another day go by without a daily dose of meditation. Set your mind on the Word of God and let it become the focal point of your life and purpose!
