Momentum is described as strength or force gained by motion. Usually it is generated by series of events. Shika Goyal says in a blog post that, ” if a team has the momentum then it is on the move and is going to take some effort to stop. But if a team has lot of momentum then it is really on the move and is going to be hard to stop”. John Maxwell says that: “When you have no momentum, even the simplest tasks can seem to be insurmountable problems. But when you have momentum on your side, the future looks bright, obstacles appear small, and trouble seems temporary.” John Eckhardt describes momentum as the key to victories. Leadership momentum is that ability to persuade others to get things done. This is what Joshua, suddenly, under God, began to demonstrate. Suddenly, six kings and their territories are taken by the people of Israel. Sometimes momentum comes at a point of anger against the activity of the enemy. It is when you dig in and declare by faith: God will do this. It’s usually a time of great investments of faith. Beyond personal motivation, the verse says something crucial: the Lord God fought for Israel. Don’t be so self dependent that you take God out of your push to become. Remember, it is God that fights our battles for us. In Phil.3:14,Paul tells us that the prize for momentum is pressure. Keep pressing towards the mark. Suddenly, your God will take over.
And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel. Joshua 10:42 KJV
