WHEN PLAN A GOES WRONGPsalm 57:2
What might seem to be Plan B to us is no surprise to God. He’s seen it all – people throughout all of history have been making a mess of Plan A and wondering where on earth to go next with their life.
“What if I mess it up?” we ask, “What if I get in the way of what God wants to do in my life?” The Big Daddy of creation is big enough to deal with your mess ups. He’s creative enough to make a masterpiece out of the second-rate ingredients we offer Him. It’s right there in the Bible: ‘And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them’ (Rom. 8:28 NLT).
It doesn’t say, ‘He works all things for good when you’re on your ‘A’ game’ or on your best day. No, the Bible says, ‘… He makes everything work out according to His plan’ (Eph. 1:11 NLT). That means He’s seen it all coming, and what might seem to be Plan B to us is, somehow... still... Plan A for God!
God will ultimately work all things for good – but a Christian looks for His will to be done from the get-go. Look at Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 6:10 - make that your prayer today.
