Taking Ground

Gaining Momentum

By Senior Pastor Phreddie Minnifield, July 18, 2021

The lesser is impacted by the greater ** It’s absolutely crucial** to understand that your Yes to Jesus has made you the greater In Christ we are the greater

*1 John 4:4 (NKJV) “We are the head and not the tail”.(Deut. 28:13)

Why are we having this conversation? The danger in not knowing this, is our momentum in life can easily be slowed down by trivial things
Clutter will clog your momentum, clutter keeps you flat-footed.

What does our response need to be today?
We need to take a real assessment of our lives: Are you moving forward or backwards? Are you moving up or going down? Are you leaning forward or leaning back? Do you have a momentum of victory or a momentum of defeat?

**Momentum works in either direction: ** If you have enough momentum in the right direction it doesn’t matter what’s thrown at you

When we have great momentum, the things that used to stop us, become little speed bumps

Galatians 6:9(NKJV)

Don’t lose heart, be encouraged, keep pressing forward! Destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. Choose to be strong and courageous! **Joshua 1:7-8(NKJV) **

**The greater impacts the lesser: ** All of us have areas of ignorance; the good news is ignorance is lesser than knowledge. So when you gain revelation knowledge from the Word of God it will drive out ignorance. Revelation knowledge is greater

Love is greater than hate. When love comes, hate goes. Light is greater than darkness. Darkness disappears when light comes.

Faith is greater than fear Where faith appears, fear leaves because the greater impacts the lesser

Whatever has the “most momentum” in your life determines the direction your life takes.

Negative Momentum: If the dominant things in your life are un-forgiveness, frustration, fear, and rejection, if they are not dealt with; they gain the “most momentum” in your life and steer your life in the wrong direction.

Positive Momentum: Because the Greater One is living inside of us we have the ability to tap into some powerful positive momentum.

How do we gain momentum and Take Ground “Momentum requires proper alignment”**

Align with Gods path Get in step with God. His direction will order your steps Psalm 37:23 (NKJV)

**Align with God’s Purpose ** Finance the Kingdom of God Matthew 6:33(NKJV).

Luke 4:43 (NKJV), **Luke 4:43 (TPT) **

**Align with Right Relationships ** Right relationships that are **anointed **by God will cause momentum in your life

**Align with God’s Calling (Ephesians 1:18 (NKJV) **

Align with God’s Power (Ephesians 1:19-22 (NKJV)

The power that is now working in us as believers is the same power that raise Jesus Christ from the dead

**Align with God’s Authority (Luke 10:19 (NKJV) **

Delegated authority has been given to the church over the works of the Enemy. Paul’s prayer is that the church may be enlightened to this fact.

Align with Abundant Life (John 10:10 (NKJV) .

Abundant life has been given to us, however it will lie dormant if we don’t apply it to our lives
