There are two times when a person stops: after a defeat and after a victory. Eliminating this kind of procrastination increases momentum.

Robert Schuller has a good saying: "Don't cash in, cast into deeper water." Don't stop after a success, keep the forward momentum going.

Go On To Do More
One of the great prizes of victory is the opportunity to do more. The trouble is, we've inoculated ourselves with small doses of success, which keep us from catching the real thing.

As I was thinking about the force of momentum, I couldn't get out of my mind a picture of a large boulder at the top of a hill. This boulder represents our lives. If we rock the boulder back and forth and get it moving, its momentum will make it almost unstoppable. The same is true of us.

The Bible promises us God's divine momentum in our lives. In Philippians 1:6 the Apostle Paul writes, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." God's momentum always results in growth.

There are five ways to have divine momentum in your life:
  1. Be fruitful (2 Cor. 9:10)
  2. Speak the truth (Eph. 4:15)
  3. Be spiritually mature (Heb. 6:1)
  4. Crave the Word of God (1 Pet. 2:2)
  5. Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus (2 Pet. 3:18)
God's definition of spiritual momentum is found in 2 Peter 1:5 (NIV):
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep your from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let go of whatever makes you stop.
