As we begin to embark into another realm of God, I am not surprised it requires FAITH. The Just shall live by FAITH. In 2022, we made a FAITH MOVE, relocating our entire family to Northern California on a promise from GOD!

A Faith move is a subconscious decision to move beyond current boundaries. It’s deep, it’s below the surface decisions. Beyond sense realm evidence.

God initiates FAITH moves; He gives the word of Faith that propels us to move.

Today, I want us to tap into a NEW realm of Faith.

Let’s increase our faith capacity right NOW, to go to a new level of living in God.

A new level is living life beyond our current comfort zone. Faith is what moves you to the next level.

God requires NEW Faith for us to gain access to another level of dependency, so we can manifest his/our desired result.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. One key component of growing your faith is to increase the hearing of the word of God.

What is your current spiritual regiment that allows you to hear the word of God consistently?

YOU GOT TO WANT IT. Let’s look at two examples of scripture that magnifies your desire to want God and HIS word.

 1 Peter 2:2

Amplified Bible

like newborn babies [you should] long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may be nurtured and grow in respect to salvation [its ultimate fulfillment],

Psalm 42:1

Amplified Bible

42 As the deer pants [longingly] for the water brooks,
So my [a]soul pants [longingly] for You, O God.



ROMANS 4: 19-21

19 Without becoming weak in faith he considered his own body, now as good as dead [for producing children] since he was about a hundred years old, and [he considered] the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 But he did not doubt or waver in unbelief concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and empowered by faith, giving glory to God, 21 being fully convinced that God had the power to do what He had promised.



  1. Can you consider your current reality in reference to what God promised and not become weak in Faith? Many of us are too focused on the current reality. Consider your situation only but DO NOT allow it to weaken your FAITH.
  2. YOUR FOCUS MUST BE THIS ONLY: Believe what GOD promised you and you will become strong and empowered by FAITH, and fully convinced GOD has the power to do it.

                                               Let’s read the full context of Romans 4: 18-24

18 In hope against hope Abraham believed that he would become a father of many nations, as he had been promised [by God]: “So [numberless] shall your descendants be.” 19 Without becoming weak in faith he considered his own body, now as good as dead [for producing children] since he was about a hundred years old, and [he considered] the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 But he did not doubt or waver in unbelief concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and empowered by faith, giving glory to God, 21 being fully convinced that God had the power to do what He had promised. 22 Therefore his faith was credited to him as righteousness (right standing with God). 23 Now not for his sake alone was it written that it was credited to him, 24 but for our sake also—to whom righteousness will be credited, as those who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead—

In summary, GOD has promised you something, and I want to encourage you to FOCUS on that Promise from God. When you focus on that promise you grow strong and empowered by Faith.

You will boldly walk and talk Faith, for you are now fully persuaded by what God promised, He is able to perform it.

You now have your FAITH swagger back.  Satan can no longer hold you hostage with the current sense realm stuff. You’re walking by FAITH in a new realm, you’ll never be the same because your focus is always THE PROMISE OF GOD!



TODAY and forever, let’s experience a new level of Living. Keep growing strong in your FAITH as you continue to believe God for every promise.

If this faith-letter is a blessing to you, please consider joining The Faith Family. We are not asking you to join a Church but a family of believers who love and live for God. We demonstrate His love on the earth.

Stay in Faith,

Apostle Derick


James 1:22 KJV

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

ACT NOW! When God gives you a rhema word, you are filled with joy, excitement and motivation.  It is during this time that you should immediately act on what God told you to do.

  1. Make the phone call.
  2. Send the email.
  3. Create the post.
  4. Apply for the job.
  5. Sow the seed.
  6. Start the ministry.
  7. Change careers.
  8. End the relationship.

It is the enemy, our adversary who comes to sow fear and attempt to stop you from ACTING on the word from God. Satan knows, if he can get you to hesitate, he has a high possibility of stopping you from ACTING on a word from God.

Satan uses the same old trick, fear. Today, we are going to ACT on what God said. I was once shipwrecked in my faith and shared my dilemma with a trusted believer. My mentor reminded me to do what God last told me to do. I ACTED and got unstuck.

Be encouraged today and know that God’s word is relevant today. Remember what God last told you and ACT NOW! Don’t deceive yourself. You must ACT.

Send me an email and let me you know that you acted on the word from God.


Plan to Win


Do you have a Family Plan? We call it the Plan to Win. The plan to win is a list of God given strategies and goals to win at life and fulfill God’s assignment. What is you family Plan to Win at Life?

The Faith Family use the 5 F’s as a foundation in our plan. Faith, Family, Fitness, Finances and Fun. God gives purpose to every family. There are many examples in the earth and in the bible of family assignments and God give gifts for the purpose of fulfilling our assignment.

Let’s look at some families and their gift. The Winans family- you think singing. We know Mom and Pop Winans could sing like no other and that gift was dominant in their family. The Winans family surely have blessed the body of Christ and this world with great music in at least three generations.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said. “ My father is a preacher, my grandfather and great grandfather is a preacher and my father brother is a preacher. I had no choice but to become a preacher”. Even though Dr. King grew up wanting to be a doctor or a lawyer, he became a preacher and it was the gift that God used to change America.

The parents in each example above raised their children in the Lord and the results speaks.

One of our roles as parents is to nurture and support our children in development of their gifts. Our primary role as parents is to raise our children in the Lord.

During the development of your family plan think on these five statements below.

  1. Ask God what is your family’s assignment in the Earth.
  2. Ask God to show your children their purpose in life.
  3. Write down your strategies and goals (the plan).
  4. Follow the Plan.
  5. Trust God for the resources.

Finally, I want to encourage you to raise your family in God. It’s not too late to turn your life to God and let him use you and your family.

Train up a child in the way he should go [ and in the keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition


The Faith Family is focused on experiencing a metamorphic change in 2017. This change is defined as any complete change in appearance, character, circumstances, etc.

The Holy Spirit has spoken “METAMORPHOSIS”. A change so dramatic that everyone will notice it. How are we going to experience such a change? By FAITH.

We must already see our self completely changed and then begin the God inspired instructions to bring it into the sense realm (reality).

By faith we must implement our PLAN TO WIN. Your PLAN TO WIN is a Holy Spirit instructed plan given to you to bring about a desired result.

The PLAN TO WIN can be a scripture from God that inspires you to keep going or a very specific and personal word. What is the Holy Spirit saying to you? Grab hold of the Holy Spirit instructions and obey at all cause

Finally, Faith is key to implementing your PLAN TO WIN. For faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17), for the just shall live by Faith.

The Holy Spirit gives us instructions that require faith. Failure to accomplish the will of God in our life is because we lack FAITH. It is vital important that we develop our faith.

In 2017, the Faith Family will assist you in developing your faith so you can experience metamorphic change in your life. 

Join the Faith Family and experience a life changing experience.


I speak an apostolic declaration to you today that the DROUGHT IS OVER and I decree Psalms 112: 1-10 over your house. Have you experienced a drought? A drought can last a long time. In the days of Elijah he spoke a word that a drought would come upon the earth, but I am glad he declared the drought was over three and a half years later.

We know that God provided for Elijah and for his people. It takes faith to believe God during a drought. You are basically living day to day, depending on God. There is no overflow. There is no rain to cause things to flourish.

As an apostle of God, I speak the DROUGHT IS OVER. It’s now time to reflect on what we learned during the drought. The word of God says wisdom built her house, by understanding it is established, and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. Proverbs 24: 3-4

To go through a drought and remain the same in God is very disappointing. Reflect on what you can do to prepare for the next drought. Did you hear God and ignore him when he said the first drought was coming?

It’s time to maximize the abundant season that is here NOW! That is right, I decree Psalms: 112: 1-10 over your house.

Receive the word today by faith in Jesus name.





  1. FAITH: We live by Faith in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. For we walk by faith and not by sight. We do not allow sense realm evidence to dictate our life. For without faith, it’s impossible to please God. We are strong in FAITH. 2 Corinthians 5:7, Hebrews 11:6
  1. FAMILY: Joshua said, “ For me and my house we will serve the Lord. The Faith Family entire household serves the Lord. We raise our children up in the Lord. Abraham commanded his whole household to follow after GOD. Our family is a family of FAITH, and in thee shall the families of the earth be blessed. Joshua 24:15, Proverbs 22:6, Genesis 12:3, Genesis 18:19
  1. FITNESS: The faith family prays daily as a family. We pray without ceasing. We discipline ourselves through prayer and mediation upon the word. We are spiritual fit to fight the good fight of FAITH.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Luke 18:1, 1 Timothy 6:12
  1. FINANCES: We are good stewards over our finances. We are givers, for God loves a cheerful giver. We are not high-minded nor do not trust in uncertain riches but we trust in God, who gives us all things to enjoy. We are rich toward GOD by FAITH. Luke 16:9-11, Psalms 24:1
  1. FUN: We enjoy all things, for it is a gift of GOD. The faith family has fun living the life of FAITH. Ecclesiastes 5:19


In the Book of Hebrews, chapter 11, we read of courageous men and women of God who obtained a good report because of their faith. As we navigate through the earth, we are given important assignments from God.

The faith testimonies in Hebrews chapter 11 should encourage us to take an Act of Faith as they did. They heard from God, and then they took an Act of Faith.

Let’s look at Noah. The scripture said he did all that God commanded him.


By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told. The result? His family was saved. His act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with God. (Hebrews 11:7 MSG)


Noah acted on what he was told, even though he couldn’t see it. What have God told you to act on? Are you not acting because you are not able to see how it can be done? The key to the Act of Faith is you act on God’s word. Noah saved his family by acting on God’s word.

I want to encourage you to Act on what God told you. Stop trying to figure it out.

Join my family and me as we take an Act of Faith.




Over twenty years ago we decided to live by faith. We have raised our family to reverence God. The foundation of all that we do is guided by the word of God.

Jesus said if you hear and do the words of mines, you would be like a wise man, which built his house on a rock. Over the year’s storms of sickness, disappointment, financial hardship and disagreements has risen against us.

We have weathered the storms and we are still standing because our relationship and everything we do, is based on the word of God.

Check your foundation.
