Right now, at this very minute, let’s just get straight to the point. What if our plans fail?
What if you don’t get the success for your studies or work? What if the next business deal will decline or chaos in the family will suddenly happen? What if the ones you’ve loved and trusted will break your heart? Or let’s look at another possibility, what if all you possess now will vanish one day? Is your Plan B ready?
You see, plans do work out. But what if they don’t? As humans, it’s not normal for us to stay on one option. Oftentimes, we have a lot of different cards – a detour, a reserved back-up for our lives. But do you know that God doesn’t have one? When He crafted His plans for us, there was no Plan B. He weaved every event carefully long before we reach this stage and He exactly knew those possibilities that give us worries most of the time(Jeremiah 29:11). Since we are the main character of His plan, He gave us freewill to choose on not more than two options – His plan or Our plan. Your guess is right, FIRST, we often choose our plan. How would we ever give up our fascinating imagination of the future? It’s definitely hard to risk on His plan without knowing the results, right? But life has its playful turns and we never realized that those results were already given from the start.
The results simply put:
Obedience = Blessings or Disobedience = Curse.
His Plan = We’re secured or Our Plan = We’re in danger.
It takes time before we realize that we should have chosen to be in His plan. Ironically, this happens not only one time in our lives. The next time we are going to make an option, we crush out His plan and choose our own again (Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps). The cycle repeats itself because we overlooked on the results of following His plan. The reason God has no Plan B for our lives is this: His plans never go wrong (Psalm 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect). It’s just us who often take the wrong road away from His. That’s why He told us to, ‘’Abide in Him’’ (John 15:1 to 8). The moment we feel that He’s not with us, it’s not Him who moved away but US.
So when you feel you’re away from Him, it’s time for a 360-degree shift. Choose His plan for your life. With Him, it’s guaranteed that things will work according to His perfect will and we’re assured that our Plan B is not needed.
Won’t you take that shift today?
”There’s no need to fear. He has promised to be near. And He will guide you all along the way. And He will give to you the strength to do what you must do so put your life into the Master’s hand. Put your life into His Master Plan”
- from the song, Put Your Life Into The Master’s Hand
