No Other Option

Is God

just one of your options

as you scramble to find solutions?

 

Do you pray to Him

and then leave your options open?

 

Do you forget

His sovereign hand

in your life?

 

He is not meant to be

an option

 

Plan A

Plan B

C

or D

 

He is meant to be

THE Plan

 

May we put away the

just-in-case-He-doesn’t-answer

mentality

 

He is the Final Word

the Sure Foundation

the Answer

the LORD

 

all falls beneath

His title

His hand

His authority

His Love

 

So next time you pray to Him,

resist formulating Plan B in your head

 

as if He may not

come through

 

Trust

Wait

Praise

Worship

 

Your all-knowing God

 

Faith says

there is no Plan B

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get His help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open.

– James 1:5-8 (MSG)

 

Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said He would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God Himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!”

– Romans 4:18 (MSG)

  1. Wonderful post. It’s amazing in a God kind of way that I “just happened” upon this post as in two days I will be delivering a message entitled “What’s Your Plan?”

    As we journey onward with the Lord I become more convinced every day that not only is there no other option, I need no other options. Have a blessed day!
