Momentum is “force or speed of movement, the impetus gained by a moving object.” It is often described by taking into account the force that can stop it. On the other hand it is very difficult to explain the exact formula that brings momentum in a person’s life. But when a person gets momentum, nothing in the world can stop them. Now, this does not mean there will be no opposition, nor does it mean one will not come under attack from various forces. But when your career, business, ministry, church gets momentum – wherever and however it might have started – nothing will be able to stop you.
The bible say, “from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it (NIV).
Nothing throughout the centuries have been able to stop the kingdom of God and its momentum. Even though a violent force has relentlessly come against the kingdom of God with the purpose to steal, kill, and destroy, the kingdom has stood the test of time and has kept its momentum. It has been forcefully advancing.
Notice that the assault on the kingdom has been relentless – from the days of John the Baptist until now. It is still happening today. But God has promised us that “the gates of hades will never prevail against us (the Church).” In fact, the greater the opposition the greater the advancement. The greater persecution the greater the achievement.
Romans 8:35-39…For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The kingdom can never be passively received and experienced. God initiates the work on our behalf, but God’s work always propels us to action. If we want to gain entrance into the kingdom of heaven and keep our momentum in our Christian life, ministry, business, career, family and relationship we’ve got to stand and be forceful in the power of His might.
Stand on God’s promises to continue helping you to make progress (the bible say he who began a good work in you will be faithful to bring it to completion). Be forceful in resisting the enemy and pressing forward. Nothing can stop you, because “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
