Matthew 8:22 – But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.” 

His words might sound harsh, but Jesus was not being disrespectful. The world is full of people who are physically healthy and successful, but they are the walking dead. They are not ready to leave behind the dead things of this world to truly follow Christ. Are there dead things in your life that keep you from following Him with all your heart, soul and might? Today is a good day to leave those things behind. They are dead weight. 

Declaration: I’m follower of Jesus. I will not let anything to slow me down in my pursuit of Him.


Here is a concept I need you to understand: In the Kingdom of God, you do not fightfor victory. You fight from victory. You are already positioned in and for victory. Jesus is just waiting for you to step out and be the warrior He created you to be.

From faith to faith  – Romans 1:17

You leap to the next level of faith from the victory of your current breakthrough in faith. When God heals you of a cold, you begin to reach for faith in healing a major disease. When you see someone healed of a major disease, momentum carries you to reach for faith to raise the dead. This momentum comes from encounter and personal experience only. 

From glory to glory – 2 Corinthians 3:18

Glory is when your right relationship with God becomes manifest. Moses so wanted to see the glory of God and to see Him face to face. When you go from glory to glory, you move from deep to deeper places of relationship. That’s why the Bible says in Psalms 42:7 that “Deep calls unto deep…” God takes us into what is extraordinary and makes it a common way of life.

From everlasting to everlasting – Psalms 41:13

Eternity invades the temporary and heaven invades earth through the momentum of the last way you experienced eternity move into time. Momentum is so powerful! Just think how much time the enemy must spend trying to put the brakes on your progress. He doesn’t want you to be an unstoppable freight train of God’s goodness, generosity or power. He wants you to take a step, freeze up for a while, or forget to move forward at all. But that’s not you!

Today is a good day to let the principle and promise of momentum motivate you to fight for forward. When you do, God will give you permission to progress all the more!
