Plan A: Abundant Life
(Melissa G.) Remember: We are heirs of Plan A! God’s original intent for our lifetime and beyond! We choose to live Plan B simply because we don’t have a grasp on His love and true intent for us. However, just because it’s not God’s original intent does not mean He is not right in the midst of it. “It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindness we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23 (AMP). Hear me out, this verse describes where our medicines fit. It is not God’s original intent for us to live with disease and on medication. Jesus finished the work so we could live an abundant life quickened by the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead (Romans 8:11). However, because He loves us so much, plan B has God’s mercy all over it, “we are not consumed – His [tender] compassions never fail – NEW EVERY MORNING – Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” AND because of that mercy there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS opportunity to live Plan A.
