Well, I've got some
good news for you...
God Has No
"Plan B"!!!
    You could tell the finest fairy tale
   Where peace rules in the kingdom
 And I would tell you this is how I feel
'Cause He reigns with love and wisdom
     Oh, and He hears every whisper
     Oh, He cares for every creature
You're the King, You're the King of my heart
Above everything You're the King of my heart *


And we know that in all things God works for
the good of those who love him who have been
called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28)

I’ve done a lot of meditating on one of the
greatest truths that God has ever given me. It’
s become the safety net that catches me
whenever I fall. It helps me to remain focused
even when my world seems to be caving in on
me. This truth is so simple that many of us
miss it. As a result, we let despair lay waste to
our hopes and dreams rather than choosing to
walk in the victory that God provides.

What is this elementary, yet overlooked truth?
God has no “Plan B.”  What do I mean by this
statement? The answer lies in the acceptance
of one undeniable truth. Our God is Sovereign
Lord. This simply means that He is in complete
control. He never drops the ball. He doesn’t
have to back up and punt. Unlike you and me,
He needs no “Plan B” to fall back on.

Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not
be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like
flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.
(Isaiah 50:7)
I’ve faced many uncertainties over the years.
There have been times when I was concerned
about meeting all of my monthly financial
obligations. I’ve had my share of
disappointments and heartache. I’ve cried
enough tears to take a bath in and have felt
many of the pressures that life can dish out.

Yet, over the years, I’ve learned that WHEN
THE PRESSURE IS ON, THAT IS THE TIME TO
PRESS ON! So, I would pray and give it to the
Lord. Then, much like the Roman soldiers of
old, I would drive my shield of faith firmly into
the ground. And by so doing, I would become
even more determined to believe in the
mighty hand of God to provide in a time of
need. In other words, I would set my face like
flint by making a decision that God is indeed
sovereign and I’m going to trust Him!

How was I able to do this? I make no claim to
being some kind of spiritual Superman. (Trust
me, you do not want to see me in spandex!) I
started to gain the victory when I made the
decision to stand. It was then that the
Sovereign Lord helped me. He helped by
giving me the faith I needed to trust Him and
the strength I needed to continue in that trust.

And we know that in all things God works for
the good of those who love him, who have been
called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28)

My friend, as you face life’s many difficulties
my prayer for you is this. May this profound
truth forever be seared deeply into your spirit.
God has no “Plan B! Indeed, the Sovereign
Lord is in control, and He is busily working all
things together for your good. Just trust Him.
