Each month Pastor Riley writes a letter to encourage you, challenge you, and strengthen your faith.

Current Partner Letter


Dear Partners,
 I want to encourage you with this month’s Partner Letter. Beloved, over the past few years we have witnessed massive changes in the world. Governments are changing, new alliances are forming, businesses are re-strategizing, and even churches are re-adjusting themselves.

 We all know that in life, change is inevitable. But what is obvious and worth taking note of is the speed at which things are changing. A few weeks ago, I began to feel an urgency in my spirit to declare God’s promises more, to pray more earnestly, and to enter into deeper worship. The urgency that I am still feeling today, let’s me know that we are in a season of divine acceleration.

 Divine acceleration is the supernatural ability of God applied to your life, your time, and your circumstances, to bring His plans to pass at a much faster rate than naturally or humanly possible.

 The word of God gives us examples of divine accelerations. 

1. Amos 9:13-Beloved, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

2. Deuteronomy 28:2-And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you because you obey the voice of the Lord God.

3. Isaiah 65:24-It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.

 The first miracle Jesus performed occurred in John 2:1-11, where he turned water into wine. Now that was divine acceleration! You may be thinking “How is that divine acceleration?”. When you think about the process of wine making, traditionally it takes three to five years to produce. The power of God working in Jesus, bypassed the traditional way of making wine. Christ Jesus did not die for us to live a traditional life.

 Divine acceleration moves us into God’s plans and purposes for our lives. The season of divine acceleration re-affirms God’s sovereignty in creation, it manifests His power in the Earth and it brings victory into our lives. Beloved, you have been praying and declaring God’s promises and believing by faith that your circumstances will change, and I believe you and I, are in a season of divine acceleration.

 Beloved, we are still in God’s moedim (His appointed time) where God redeems His people, He renews His people, He restores His people, and He heals and provides for His people. During God’s appointed time, He supernaturally intervenes in our lives and situations. I believe that God’s appointed time opens the door for a season of divine acceleration.

 We have all had setbacks, disappointments, and delays at one time or another. Brothers and sisters don’t get weary and give up. Stay in faith, keep declaring God’s promises and keep on singing praises to God because your season of change is near.

Marcia and I are believing for your success.

Bless you,
Pastor Howard
