Dear Zoe Partner

I pray that as we move into the month of February, the grace of God—His unmerited, undeserved
favor—is manifesting in your life like never before! Remember, you access God’s grace by faith, not by self effort
or your performance (Romans 5:2). Your part is to rest in the finished works of Jesus Christ and yield
to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit. He knows God’s plans and purposes for your life, and He will
order your steps and lead you in the way you should go.

In last month’s letter to all of my Zoe partners, I shared that in 2014 I plan to focus intensely on
imparting the Word of grace to you. I also stated that my other objective is to share 14 practical steps with
you throughout the year, which will empower you to achieve total-life prosperity. Step #1 was to be confident
and know that the Lord is always with you.

This month, I’m going to discuss Step #2: Know God’s ways and how He operates.

In order to prosper in any area of your life—including your finances—you must know God’s ways and
how He operates. Deuteronomy 5:33 instructs us to “Walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.”

When you begin to learn God’s ways, He’ll show you how to get from one point to another point. He’ll
begin to show you a way that’s higher than the way that you’re operating in right now. Isaiah 55:9 declares,
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

God created you. He’s anticipated everything you would ever need, want, or desire in life. So He knows
best how to prosper you, is He not the One who created you and gave you life?

Not only did God create you, but He gave you His instruction manual—the Bible—on how to live a
prosperous, victorious life. He didn’t leave you to stumble aimlessly through life without any guidance or
direction. The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). It tells you everything you need to know
about God and how He operates. God loves you deeply and created you specifically for intimate fellowship
with Him! Now, who wouldn’t want to know and serve a God like that?

You can never read the Bible too much, pray too much, or spend too much time with God. This is
how you renew your mind—exchange your thoughts and ways for God’s thoughts and ways. Practicing the
presence of God will teach you how to learn God’s ways and how He operates. Furthermore, when you
earnestly seek God, you will receive godly wisdom, knowledge, and divine inspiration. When the answer
to whatever you need comes from Him, it comes because it costs you something to learn His ways.

The presence of God will lead you into financial prosperity. God wants to speak to you (Isaiah 48:16).
The wisdom of God is waiting to explode on the inside of your born-again spirit and make the difference
between an average lifestyle and a supernatural one. God wants to give you the advantage. He wants to
teach you how to profit and prosper. “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go” (Isaiah 48:17, AMP).

God’s grace has already made everything you’ll ever need in life available to you. So, all that you
are sweating to obtain and achieve in your own strength and human ability is futile. It may net you some
temporary successes, but at what price? Working long hours or working multiple jobs? Having no time to
spend with your family? Endangering your health because you’re too busy working to take time out for
vacations or leisure time? Child of God, that’s too high a price to pay! Everything you’re sweating for,
God wants to give you, but His way will give you sweatless victories! So it pays to know God’s ways and
how He operates.

Partner, you are important to God, and you are important to us. As one of our precious Zoe partners,
we’re in a covenant relationship that’s unbreakable! Taffi and I love you and want to see you prosper in
every area of your life, including your finances. That is absolutely God’s will for your life! So, no matter
what financial pressures may be closing in on you today, refuse to give up, cave in, or quit. That’s what’s
so amazing about grace—it will empower you to overcome your shortcomings and your weaknesses, not
in your own strength but through God’s mighty power working in and through you! (Ephesians 6:10).
Whatever crisis may be confronting you right now, rest assured that it has an expiration date!

I declare that God is about to do something grand—extremely powerful—in your life and situation!
I prophesy to every household: get ready to be in awe because of God’s grace and goodness! There’s an
unusual, fresh expectation for what’s getting ready to happen this year! You know in your Knower that
something’s getting ready to happen!

God’s getting ready to blow your mind! I smell glory! Hallelujah!

In Christ,
Creflo Dollar
