Choosing the Difficult Right

by Chris Russell
The Time is Now week one message from Pastor Chris Russell on April 23, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. At the time in history of Haggai, God's people were divided into two nations - Israel and Judah. King Solomon was the last to rule before King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon invaded and took captive control. But around 538 B.C. we see around 50,000 people return to Jerusalem. They began the rebuilding, the foundation and the altar. Then the Samaritans show up to cause trouble... The people began focusing not on him and his plan, but on their own...thus, the Lord send Haggai... Haggai 1:2 We do what they did - "it's getting to difficult..." Opposition does not mean that God is against you. WITH GOD'S HELP, I WILL CHOOSE THE DIFFICULT RIGHT OVER THE EASY WRONG! When you look back at your life, how many of you have an unfinished assignment waiting to be completed? Haggai 1:3-5 How many of us battle with the right focus? Haggai 1:6 David was always good at describing how God works. Psalm 119:105 A lot of times, you have to do what God show you first before He reveals more to you. You can't get to the goal without following the steps and it is always one step at a time. You can't just jump has to go in order... 1...2...3... You don't have to have all the answers right at this moment. This is what it means when scripture says to walk by the Spirit of God. Are you going to choose the difficult right or the easy wrong? Choose to have a God sized story and not a human sized story. The TIME IS NOW! Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year... Start now and take a step at a time - start with steps 1 to 3 and watch God show up and see what He does when you put him first in every area of your life.
