REALIZING WHERE YOU ARE

Jn. 6:67, 68

" “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."

INTRO:

I. WHERE AM I?

1. Phases in life

1) Each one of us will pass through stages in life

2. Circumstances

1) Each of us is responsible for our decisions

3. Goals

1) All of us should learn to plan our lives

II. BASIC KEYS IN ACHIEVING WHERE YOU ARE

1. God is merciful

2. God is just

3. We have to do our part (He who wakes up early, God will help him / El que madruga, Dios le ayuda)

4. Things are not microwave

5. Don’t expect others to do it for you

III. SPIRITUAL KEYS IN REALIZING EXPECTATIONS

1. You are a Child of God

1) 1 Pe 2:9 “9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

2. Your circumstances don’t dictate God’s plans for you

1) Jer 29:11 “11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

3. See beyond your situation

1) Jonah 1:17-2: “17 But the LORD provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights. 1 From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God. 2 He said: “In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry. 3 You hurled me into the deep, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me. 4 I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’ 5 The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. 6 To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you brought my life up from the pit, O LORD my God. 7 “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.”

(1) He was inside the belly of a fish vs 17

(2) He was in distress / He answered me; vs 2

(3) From the depths of the grave I called; vs 2

(4) I have been banished from your sight / yet I will look again toward your holy temple; vs 4

(5) you brought my life up from the pit, O LORD my God vs 6

(6) “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you; vs 7

4. You are where God wants you to be at

5. Hold on to God’s promises

1) Joshua 21:45 “45 Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.”
