Keeping Supernatural Momentum in Your Stand

BY: Tiffany Bull, Stander, Group Leader
Like a child anticipating a blessing, each year since I started a new life in Christ Jesus, I have asked my Heavenly Father for a birthday gift. His most recent spiritual gift to me has rocked my world. This gift is very special to me and crucial for my stand for my marriage. As it was drawing near my birthday last summer, I sought the Lord's face and asked, "Is there something special YOU want to bless me with this year? And if there is a spiritual gift awaiting me, would you prepare my heart for it?"
 
One night as I slept, I heard the Lord say to me: "You are in the middle of a miracle. I don't want you to get stuck in the middle of the battle. You will not lose momentum in this season."   
The scripture he gave me was Zachariah 4:6, Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, "This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' saith the Lord of hosts.
 
I did not understand what it meant at first, but two days later, this unique, spiritual gift was evident. Apostle John Eckhardt sent me an email invitation to attend the "2020 Momentum Fast: Don't Stop In The Middle." My heart leaped with joy because I was sure that this was my birthday gift from my Heavenly Daddy. Oh, the joy I was experiencing! 
 
I signed up for the 15-day journey and sought the Lord for areas of my life that needed momentum. He released an eagerness in my heart to persevere in my stand with vigor and strength. I knew with clarity that the Father was saying to me, "The more you keep moving in this ministry of reconciliation, the more the Spirit of might shall come upon you. Don't stop!"
 
The first boost of supernatural momentum that was bestowed upon me was the reminder that God has ordained me to bring reconciliation to my family. Do not forget; you are being built up during this season of standing. God is growing us and moving us, transforming us. He is moving us into something so much more glorious. Hebrews 10:35 says, "So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded." We have the revelation to stand in the gap for our marriages. 
 
A revelation revealed is what our faith must explore and apprehend. We are not meant to stay at one level during our stand. We are to grow from glory to glory in this season. We are not merely hanging on for life throughout the stand but experiencing God's greatness in the waiting season. 
 
In the beginning, my stand was weak. There was much doubt and fear in my heart. But with persistence, I started to grow deeper in my faith, and my stand started to look more hopeful and less fearful. 
 
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18
 
In the 15 days that I fasted, the Lord tattooed on my heart that it is imperative that I put on Heaven's perspective during my stand. No matter what comes my way, I must focus my attention on the fact that God's plans and promises are alive. He is bringing dead things back to life. God knows the plans He has for me (Jeremiah 29:11). He is working these plans out. 
 
The key aspect to growing a divine perspective is momentum. As I began to build up momentum, my faith, certainty, and belief grew inside me. Nothing could stop me. It was as if the knowledge I had in my mind moved to my heart and was branded there for life. As the momentum built inside my spirit, I started to be thankful even in things I do not have or could not see. The Lord reminded me of all the breakthroughs along the journey. This built my momentum; it got me going, shifting how I saw my situation in my mind. I now was triggered in my heart and saw restoration more tangibly.  
 
As it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations"—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. Romans 4:17
 
Restoration is happening no matter the length of time that has passed. Once my faith was boosted, I started walking more confidently. God was moving! The momentum began to get stronger; a power surge began to build in my heart that increased confidence and success in my stand like never before.
 
The secret to creating momentum is certainty and belief that God is working a good thing out in your life, growing in levels of confidence that God is restoring everything that was lost to the enemy. Momentum is powerful. The amplified motion of momentum resets the mind. Thoughts of restoration start to shift from a level of uncertainty in the stand to standing hopefully and powerfully. If we are to stand firm, we want to stay in this joyous place. Momentum builds when we see results (i.e., a breakthrough of some kind in our spouse or our marriage). 
 
But even when we do not see any results, we need to be mindful to keep our focus on the Lord, believing He is working even when we can not see it. Over time there is less need to depend on seeing results in the natural. The mind begins to be confident of breakthrough based on the promises in God's word. For example, I start envisioning my spouse coming home in my mind. I can see the future of our marriage and family in my mind. The end result is now changed in my mind based on God's promises. 
 
Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
 
The greater the momentum of a thing, the more significant its impact will have once it reaches its destination. One of the keys to building momentum is to allow your victories to thrust you into more substantial momentum. Momentum builds your confidence and increases your strength for the next spiritual battle.  
 
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18
 
We have the authority that God has placed on each of us to show this world that God is a covenant God who honors and restores marriages through His resurrection power. It is God's heart always to restore. God wants to increase your momentum during your season of standing. The Bible says we are to freely receive and freely give (Matthew 10:8). Just as the Lord blessed me with momentum in the middle of my stand, today, I am passing on this gift to you. No more will you be stuck in the middle of your stand. You are standing powerfully in the divine perspective of God. Come to Him with confidence.
