There Is No Plan “B”
“Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
One of the hurdles I’ve struggled with is the “alternative”. I was never one to commit or stay with the original plan. As a matter of fact one of my biggest obstacles was I would tend to find another way, a better way.
Now I’m not saying we shouldn’t be so narrow minded that we don’t lend ourselves to suggestions or be prepared to adjust. I’m saying when it comes to our commitment to the Lord and our dedication to follow there should be no “Plan B”.
When I entertain an option or if I think that God needs my help it’s easy for me to simply “relapse” to my way of thinking. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding “ has got to be my mindset in a world that tells us to be “open minded” and “do what feels good”.
I have been in a relationship with someone who always had a “Plan B” attitude towards the commitment we made and it was a draining experience. There is nothing better than to be part of a relationship or team that has a “no matter what” attitude. To be men that can be counted as dependable and trustworthy.
Out of all the messages I’ve heard this summer the ones that refer back to the sacrifice Jesus made by going to the cross touched me the most. This plan of salvation that God has put into action which cost Him His Son is given to us to proclaim to a lost and dying world, The Way. There is no “Plan B”. – Rob Russomano is a graduate of the Colony of Mercy and serves on the full-time staff at America’s Keswick
