"Anything that reduces or replaces God is an idol." -Jennifer Rothschild.
Anytime we have a plan B, we are actually saying that we don't think God is enough. Did your eyes just bug out of your head? Mine did. Think about it though, God made us. He knows the days of our lives before we were born. Every time we choose to think that He doesn't have this under control, is when we place other objects, people, or status above Him. In essence, we create idols.
I struggle with the need for approval and not feeling good enough. It's a weakness of mine and one that I am praying God helps me through. When I seek approval from worldly success, from other people, from status symbols, I am telling God that his approval means less and that is so not what I want to do! You with me?
Our God is so big and his promises are true and his love is larger than we can fathom. So, today, let's remember that every time we create a plan B in our lives, we are diminishing Him and who He says He is. He deserves more from us.
