    Your Choices Matter – Haggai 2:1-9
    Sunday, January 9, 2022

    Pastor Mike Bailey

    Introduction

    Have you ever asked the questions: How did I end up here? Why is this happening to me? The places we find ourselves in, the circumstances that surround us, the lives we have built are a combination of where we place our trust and the choices that we make. And our choices will affect not only our lives, but the lives of those around us. Have you ever placed value on your personal choices? Have you thought recently about how the next decision you make could determine your next year, five years, ten years or more? Do others come into consideration as you decide what steps to take next? Your choices matter! Does that matter to you?

    1. Give it . (2:1-2)

    So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

    15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Ephesians 5:15-16

    2. It is not what it was . (2:3)

    We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9

    And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20

    3. You are under different now. (2:4-5)

    13 Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” 14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. 15 What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13-15

    4. The greatest is going to get involved. (2:6-7)

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

    So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

    Notes:

    5. He has all the to make it happen. (2:8)

    If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for all the world is mine and everything in it. Psalm 50:12

    And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

    6. God will create a greater for you. (2:9a)

    For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Hebrews 13:14

    “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4

    7. God will bring you in His new place. (2:9b)

    Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Romans 5:1

    Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

    Closing: Are you still waiting on God to meet your expectations, or are you ready to listen and follow His lead?

    It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Isaiah 59:2a

    For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.  Romans 3:23

    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

    If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
