Are You Trusting In Your Plan B?

Genesis 17:1-7;17-19

Memory Verse:
“Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, ‘Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?’ And Abraham said to God, ‘Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!'” (Genesis 17:17&18).

A Plan B typically refers to an alternate plan, a contingency plan which is to be used in the event of an outcome other than that expected in the original plan. In business and risk management, this is very common  and, in fact, expected to ensure success. It, however, shows that there is not
complete faith in the original plan. Abraham and God had come a long way; some 24 years had lapsed. It had been a long wait for the promised child and, along the way, Sarah and Abraham had
developed a Plan B which God disapproved of. God knew He was still on course with His original plan, but Abraham was not so sure. His laughter and  thoughts gave him away. He had his doubts about Plan A and was willing to go with Plan B.
Are you waiting on God for something and it is taking a long time coming? Has God made promises to you or given you assurances in different ways, yet you are still waiting? Take heart child of God. God has not forgotten you. Do not devise a Plan B for if God said it, He will do it. Be patient. Within nine months of Abraham’s discussion with God, the promised child Isaac was born.
Remember that the dawn comes immediately after the darkest part of the night,“Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning”(Psalm 30:5b). Do not trust in your Plan B. Hold on to God’s promises to you.
Prayer Points:

1. Thank God for His plans for your life.
2. Grant me grace to wait for Your appointed time, O God.
