Seven Important Areas To Consider : The Role of Purpose:
Prayer helps us find and develop a clear purpose and is a critical step in sustaining the momentum of a Christian journey. It is important to ask yourself, “What am I doing this for? Why am I doing this?” Your purpose should be based on your relationship with God. You must be asked yourself what it is that God wants you to do and why. Your purpose should be bigger than yourself. It should come from deep within yourself and should wake you up in the morning, inspiring you and giving you the energy to keep going no matter the circumstances. Your purpose should be about knowing why you believe what you believe, why you worship God the way you do, and why you live the way you do. Prayer helps discover your purpose.
The Importance of Focus:
Reading the Bible provides an opportunity to focus. Along with having a clear purpose, having a sharp focus is also key in sustaining your Christian momentum. This means having the ability to focus on a task and remain undistracted throughout its completion. It is easy to get discouraged when we lose focus of our purpose, or when we become frustrated with our progress. But it is important to keep going and use distractions as fuel to keep going, rather than stumbling blocks. Our focus should always be on our relationship with the Lord and His will for us. This will give us the energy and enthusiasm to stay on track and push through any difficulty. We must understand and accept that struggles in life are inevitable, but with God, we can remain focused on our purpose, despite any obstacle in our path.
The Need for Consistency: Being consistent is also an important step in sustaining the momentum of our Christian journey. This means staying diligent and consistent in our pursuit, no matter what the circumstances. A consistent journey will keep you focused, push your limits, and force you out of your comfort zone. We must strive to remain consistent in our prayer life, Bible reading, praise and worship and in our fellowship with other believers. When we are consistent, we can stay focused on our ultimate goal—to love and serve God for the rest of our lives. Consistency in the small things will lead to greater dedication in the long run.
The Power of Patience: Patience is paramount when it comes to sustaining the momentum of your Christian journey. Part of this has to do with our anticipation of God’s perfect timing in our lives. We need to fully trust that God does have a plan for us and believe that it is in His will for us to wait for Him. Patience enables us to accept our weaknesses, knowing that God can and will take us out of our failures, sores, and defeats. We must have faith, which will fuel our patience while we wait. This is when we must remember that the Lord is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble; He will never leave nor forsake us -
Taking Risks: Taking risks is a key factor in sustaining the momentum of our Christian life. To get to the “promised land”, we must venture outside of our comfort zone and take risks. We should not allow fear to keep us from doing what God has placed in our hearts. It is only by taking risks that we can surge forward and experience the abundant life that Jesus has prepared for us. When we take risks, we grow and learn about ourselves, God, and the world around us. We cannot expect growth if we remain afraid to take risks and if we never move beyond our limitations. Taking risks also helps us find our purpose and use our talents and gifts to glorify God and positively impact the world. The importance of Staying Positive: Staying positive is the last, but not the least, when it comes to sustaining the momentum of our Christian journey.
Keeping a positive attitude ensures that we will walk in faith and obedience, rather than fear and doubt. It is easy to become discouraged and question our progress. But we must stay encouraged and filled with hope. We can stay positive by talking to God in prayer, worshipping Him, and reading and meditating on His Word. Knowing that God’s love and grace never fail, allows us to overcome any discouraging feelings or negative thoughts. Staying positive also helps us stay focused on our purpose and use our talents to bring glory and honor to God.
Conclusion: Sustaining the momentum of the Christian life is no easy task. It requires hard work, dedication, and faith. But with God, all things are possible. If we abide by these seven steps, we can make sure that we stay the course and travel our Christian journey with confidence and joy.
Prayer, Dear Father, Thank you for helping me sustain my momentum in this season of my life! In Jesus Name,Amen.
