Fearless living - Creflo Dollar

I had the opportunity to go to a meeting recently where Pastor Creflo Dollar was preaching. He taught on fear and here are some of the notes that I took:
  • 2 Timothy 1:7
  • Panic is groundless fear.
  • The US is now more afraid then ever before.
  • We have been given:
    • Power - ability to get results
    • Love - to love what/who is not lovable
    • Sound mind - a mind that is free from fear.
  • Fear comes from hearing the contradictions of the word of God.
  • Faith comes by hearing the word of God.
  • You paralyze the devil when you operate in faith and not fear.
  • If you tolerate fear you will contaminate your faith!
  • Genesis 3:1-5
  • Fear and unbelief go hand in hand.
  • The devil does his best to make sure that believers have the doubt that what God said in his word will not come to pass.
  • Anger is an expression of fear.
  • Fear is abnormal.
  • When fear is used as a motivator it will always lead you to bondage!
  • Revelation 21:8 if it's OK to have a little fear everything else that is mentioned in the verse should also be OK. Right?
  • Philippians 1:28 (amp)
  • Matthew 6:25-33
  • Meditating on the contradiction of Gods word leads to worry!
  • Philippians 4:6-9 (amp)
  • Peace - security in the midst of turmoil!
