Plan B – Romans 8:28
If you have made a mess of your life or some part of it, you may want to know about “Plan B.” We often wonder “what if.” What if we hadn’t made a certain mistake or what if we hadn’t decided a certain thing wrong? Where would we be now instead of where we are?
I know a lady for instance, who feels she married wrong and wonders what would have happened if she had waited on God’s choice. There probably are very few of us who have no regrets. But how does God see it?
Years ago I heard a sermon by an associate pastor in the church I was attending that I’ve never forgotten. He recounted the story of a wrong decision in his own life which altered his course. He said he lamented over it many times and felt that God’s Plan A for him was gone and now he would have to settle for Plan B.
Lo and behold, that is not how it turned out. When the circumstances finally played out, he was amazed to find that it was as if Plan A was intact after all. He said it was like God took his mistake and reworked it better than if he had made the right decision originally. Plan B now stood for “Plan Best” to him.
Isn’t that just like God? Isn’t that what this means; “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”? (Romans 8:28)
Are you regretfully living Plan B? Don’t worry. Remember what B stands for.
