Most of us have made serious mistakes or blunders. When this happens, an overwhelming sense of powerlessness may come over us, and we may feel as if our world is crashing down. However, these times are great opportunities for God to perform the 'and suddenly' event in your life. I know I've experienced them many times, and I'm sure you have also. We can all recall times in our lives when we needed help, and suddenly someone came along to offer assistance. Whether help fixing a car, or correcting an error at work, it's always good to receive a helping hand.
If receiving help from others delivers us from stress and bondage, imagine the freedom we experience when we accept the help God has given us! God sent His only Son to restore wholeness to mankind. In essence, Jesus corrected the mistake Adam made when he allowed Satan to deceive he and Eve into disobedience in the Garden of Eden.
Despite the magnitude of Adam's mistake, which subsequently affected all mankind, God redeemed us, and did so by giving us the greatest gift ever—His only Son. All of us were once cursed, destined to take part in the grim fate of eternal death, and worthy of Hell because of one man's sin! However, through Jesus Christ, we've received a chance to start over and have right—standing with God again.
Let's explore ways in our daily lives to show God how much we appreciate our second chance. I've decided to get up every morning and declare, This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it! I praise Him for His goodness and mercy every day, and commit to share His love with others.

Through Jesus, we have access to God's grace. His grace is His willingness to get involved in our situations even though we don't deserve it. God's grace is unearned and unmerited favor He willingly bestowed upon our lives.
Rest assured today that no matter what's going on in your life, or what mistakes you've made, God willingly extends grace to help you overcome. We've all made mistakes, but don't condemn yourself. Instead, remain steadfast and receive God's helping hand of restoration.

Creflo Dollar Changing, Growing, Becoming!

I came across a quote today that profoundly impacted me. The quote, from Charles Dubois, epitomizes the life of a Christian. It says, "The most important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." Wow! I can't think of a better quote that precisely and insightfully captures the true calling of Christianity.
Are you willing to sacrifice what you are now, in order to become what God has called you to be? If you're a Christian, this is a question you need to honestly ask yourself. If your answer is no, you'll remain stagnant in your current state—never experiencing the result of change or the beauty of growth.
For a born—again Christian, change is a necessary and perpetual facet of life. In order to become everything God has called us to be, not only do we have to embrace change, we have to learn to love it. God makes masterpieces on the canvas of our lives; and everyday we have the opportunity to work with Him in creating a work of art. By the leading of His Spirit, we must be willing to make the necessary adjustments so God can continue the work He started in us.
Do you know what happens to a person who becomes so complacent in their current existence they refuse to change? They never grow, and in extreme cases, they live their entire life with unfulfilled greatness. Don't let that be your story!
Jesus was a great example of what it means to sacrifice what we are, for what we can become. He embodied change, and allowed His entire life to be a sacrifice. As a result, He now sits at the right hand of the Father. Notice, however, what He ultimately achieved began with His willingness to lay down all for God's will.
Just think, if Jesus hadn't willingly sacrificed His life, you and I would not have unrestricted access to the Father. I don't know about you, but the sacrifice Jesus made motivates me to sacrifice what I am, so I can grow and become what God has destined me to be.
Do you really want to grow into the person God's called you to be? Because if you do, then change is the order of business! Don't be consumed with what you are right now; submit your life to God as a sacrifice, and focus on what you will become.

Creflo Dollar Godly Fathers

At one of my men’s fellowship services there were dozens of men in attendance who had never been fathered. I called them to the altar, began calling each of them by name, and prayed over their lives. As I prophetically confirmed their identity, I saw such passion come out of them. As they began to discover their identity for the first time, many of them fell to the floor in tears.

What we see happening among today’s youth is clearly the result of a fatherless generation. Young people need guidance. There are teenage boys who don’t have a clue what it means to be a man, and young women who don’t know their worth. Over the years, many people have allowed the enemy to subtly destroy their families. However, families can be restored when we understand how to function and operate according to the Word of God.

By God’s standards, fathers are also the providers for the family. Men, God will provide for you as you provide for your families. He will father you as you father your children. This is the principle of seed time and harvest. God promises all fathers His fatherly involvement in their lives based on their fatherly involvement in their children’s lives.

Fathers must strive to love their children with a deep, intimate, God-kind of love. You cannot allow your emotions to hinder your ability to properly love your children. They should not have to seek out love in all the wrong places, or feel there is something missing in their lives because they lack your love. Fathers, I urge you to develop a healthy, intimate relationship with your sons and daughters. Spend quality time with them; let them know you passionately love and support them.

I remember once coming home from a trip to Nigeria. My dad grabbed me and hugged me so intensely that something melted on the inside of me. That hug let me know how important I was to him. In that way, my father imitated God’s love for me and it greatly enhanced our relationship.

I commend and appreciate men who are good fathers, hard-working, and men of God. I know it’s not easy to walk in integrity, be there for your children, and be a good example for your family, but your efforts will pay off.

If you have never known the love of your biological father, you can still experience a father’s love. Everyone should have a deep, intimate, and loving relationship with the Heavenly Father. Receive God’s love and acceptance through His Son, Jesus. Let go of the past and have the courage to move on. Enjoy the present, and all that God has for you!
