This weekend I had a significant realization. I am working toward plan B.
When I address Plan B I'm not referring to the morning after pill. What I'm talking about is Plan B for my life. Plan B, is my safe plan, the plan other people tell me I'm good at with a secure career and income.
However, this week I had a chance to observe some Plan B career people and although they are terrific at their job, I could not see myself living out Plan B. (To keep it simple.)
"He took him outside and said, "Look up at the sky and count the stars-if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.
The point is, my faith needs strengthened. Working to complete Plan B and attempting Plan A (My heart's real desires) on the side is not what a father of freedom wants for me (or you). Plan A is risky. Abram heard the Lord and left his family for new land, which was risky, but the Lord provided.
I would like to encourage you to read Genesis 15 this week.
