Scripture reference: James 1:6 (NLT)
Today, I am encouraging you to toss your backup plan. This is the plan that we create just in case God doesn’t come through, and we tend to create these plans especially when the stakes seem high.
This was certainly the case for Sarah, Abraham’s wife. During this time, one way men gained their status was by the number of sons they had. Meanwhile, women gained their status by the number of children they bore.
After several failed attempts at having a baby, and likely feeling that her stakes were very high, Sarah executed her own backup plan. She had her servant Hagar sleep with Abraham in the hope that she could give him a son.
Shortly thereafter, Sarah became very unhappy with her own plan. It wasn’t until Sarah put her faith entirely in God even at age 90 that she became pregnant.
Do you have a high stakes situation for which you, even subconsciously, have a backup plan? If so, remember these words: “But when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone.” James 1:6 (NLT)
This has been your B Moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
