Momentum

I was cruising along riding my bike recently when I was abruptly cut off by a turning car. It made me realize that sometimes when we are spared bodily harm or material destruction the worst that the "thief" can do, that thief who comes only to rob kill, or destroy (John 10 verse 10), is to rob our momentum. In any contest, including this spiritual one in which we are involved, there are or can be momentum swings. Just when we sense we are falling into or have been benefiting from a productive fruitful rhythm there comes a disruption or a reversal in that progression and we have to begin all over again. But the good news is that momentum can be quickly recovered. The sooner we put the disruption and its disappointment behind us the sooner we can get started rebuilding the lost momentum. Successes are usually followed by tests or temptations of some kind that can either soldify or undermine the gains. There are so many examples of this but Elijah's dpression following the glorious victory on Mount Carmel is certainly one example. Momentum is so fragile we can never depend on it so we should enjoy it when we have it and at the same time brace ourselves. If our adversary can't kill, he will rob, and if he can't rob he will settle for just plain being destructive. Thank God he is on a leash, though granted there are times when that leash seems mighty long!
