God Does not have a Plan B
Reading for the Day: Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
In our world there is something called a “contingency plan.” In case our first efforts don’t work out, we have another plan to fall back on. You are hedging your bets so to speak.
God’s doesn’t have a contingency plan nor does He need one. That alone makes some people suspicious of Him. What if this God thing doesn’t work out? What if I can’t keep from sinning? What then?
In the book of Jeremiah, God uses the prophet to reassure the people. They were living in troubled times. Jerusalem had been destroyed but God was not going to leave them destitute. If they chose to follow Him again, He would restore them.
God is giving that same message to you today. Turn from your sinful living and embrace His Word. Even in our waywardness God has a plan for our lives but it can’t be realized until we surrender our plans for His.
When you were growing up, your parents made the decisions for you. You didn’t think about “Plan B” because you trusted them. Remember that child-like trust when you think of your Heavenly Father. He will carry you through the storms of life. When you fall, He will pick you up.
Instead of second guessing, go to God. Leave the heavy work to Him and rest in the knowledge that He has it all under control.
Prayer Suggestions: It is not easy to trust. But as you live for God day by day, He will show you that He is all that you need.
