I want to share something with you today about how God can do things in an instant that would take you years to try to make happen.

When I look back, I am almost overwhelmed at what God has done in me and through this ministry in such a short time. If you will take to heart the points in this letter, I believe you will be able look back in amazement concerning all God has done in your life.

Commit to hearing from God.
I can not emphasize this point enough. Everything God wants to do in you, for you, and through you starts here.

Whether you need wisdom for a relationship, career, schooling, or what's next for your life; the answer can always be found in a word from God.

Whenever you spend time in prayer, keep a notebook and pen with you. Even if you can only manage five minutes to go somewhere quiet, ask the Lord what He wants you to do, and write down what you hear.

When you do this over and over, you are training yourself to hear from God. And you position yourself for Him to move in your life like never before.

Don't go your whole life trying to do everything in your ability and with your natural understanding when you have access to the very Creator of the universe!

To see where your life is headed, listen to the words that have been coming out of your mouth.

Your dreams could be delayed because of what you are saying. Speaking negative words over your life will hinder what God wants to do.

In the Bible, the angel Gabriel appeared to Zechariah to tell him his prayers for a baby had been answered. But, when Zechariah began to express doubt and give reasons why this couldn't be, the angel zipped his lips for nine months!

God knew if Zechariah was allowed to say whatever he felt like, he would mess everything up and miss His blessing.

You may be thinking as you read this letter, Terri, my circumstances are bad. My bank account is too low. Business is really slow. I'm in the middle of a really tough time.

If you feel that way, here's what I want you to do: Instead of complaining about how bad things are and how you can't seem to get ahead, start declaring:
  • I am blessed!
  • I am favored!
  • I am an overcomer!
  • I am healthy and full of life!

It's one thing to stop saying the wrongs words, it's another thing to start saying the right words. Your victory is in your mouth!

You have to step out of your comfort zone if you want to see the dreams and goals God's given you come to pass.

When the Israelites were preparing to enter the Promised Land, they were told the way they had to go was a direction they had never been before (see Joshua 3:4). It was different and unfamiliar.

I believe God is saying this to you today: New things are on the horizon, but you have to step out in faith!

Fear will try to stop you from ever trying, but faith takes action! You have to cast out thoughts of failure, insecurity, and doubt.

Everything I'm doing today is the result of taking a risk to step out in faith and obey God. It's not always easy, but it's always worth it.
