MOMENTUM: Momentum Moments, Part 3
Momentum = mass x speed x direction (the art of movement)
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” -Albert Einstein

The goal of the Christian life is not simply to arrive safely to our destination. God wants us to walk on the water with Him and experience things that we've never dreamed. There will be moments when you feel like the holy momentum in your life has been sucked away. In those moments you need to do these 3 things:

1. Keep Taking STEPS Into Your Future.
"But Jesus quickly spoke to them, "Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid." Peter said, "Lord, if it is really you, then command me to come to you on the water." Jesus said, "Come."  And Peter left the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. Matthew 14:27-29
Key Thought- Don't allow your life in Christ to begin with faith and end in fear. If you don't go after what you want, you won't get it; If you never ask, the answer is always no; if you don't move forward, you remain in same place!
  
2. Keep Your Eyes On JESUS.
"But when Peter saw the wind and the waves, he became afraid and began to sink. He shouted, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught Peter. Jesus said, "Your faith is small. Why did you doubt?" After they got into the boat, the wind became calm.33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, "Truly you are the Son of God!" Matthew 14:30-33
Key Thought- The focus of your life will be the future of your life. Focus your thoughts/eyes on the mountain mover, not the mountain.

3. Keep Standing On GOD's PROMISES.
"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God." 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NIV)
“As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed — the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not”(Romans 4:17, NIV)
Key thought- Faith doesn’t always instantly deliver you, but it always carries you through. Keep walking on the words of Jesus!

Closing thought
The famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed many beautiful buildings, homes, and other magnificent structures. Toward the end of his career, a reporter asked him, “Of your many beautiful designs, which one is your favorite?” Without missing a beat, Frank Lloyd Wright answered, “My next one.” Keep believing and trusting God for the future that He has for you! Why not receive all of God promises for your one and only life! Believe God that your best days are still ahead keep standing on the promises.

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a
