What if you discover that you are working the wrong plan for your life and failure is imminent?
What if the very plan you are working so hard to achieve doesn’t really exist and has never existed as an option in the mind of God?
What if you were to discover there is no Plan B?
What if you are working off the wrong set of blueprints—yours instead of God’s?
The answers to these questions could be staggering if you are willing take a moment and consider their implications. All of us have been taught from birth to plan for the unexpected—to prepare just in case things don’t work out. In reality, we been taught to formulate an escape plan or another option, and call it Plan B.
God has a blueprint for your life. He only has one plan—Plan A. He does not need another option, thus he has no Plan B. He has one plan for all humanity. All of us were created to enjoy Plan A.
What is Plan A?
Good question and one that is worthy of consideration.
Plan A provides the following for every person who has ever lived:
- A relationship with God.
- An identity from God.
- A purpose in God.
Plan A is the blueprint God offered to Adam—the very same deal. But Adam rejected it and fumbled it away. The possibilities that were set before Adam were mind-boggling, but they are the very same ones guaranteed to each of us in Christ.
It gets even better because these possibilities are available right now, not some up-and-coming day in the by-and-by way up yonder in the sky. They can be accessed by any believer who understands his or her identity and believes that God will fulfill all that he has promised.
Do you know who you are in Christ?
Do you understand the implications of your identity as a son or daughter of God and a joint heir with Christ?
Would you recognize God’s Plan A for you if you were to see it?
All of these questions need an answer. And their answers could change the trajectory your life.
It’s your life, but you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by finding and implementing the correct answers. You only have one life to live, why not live it according to God’s plan and purpose?
