Jesus’ plan for bringing forth the Kingdom of God on earth was to train twelve men as His disciples over a three-year timeframe. These twelve disciples were then directed to train others in the same way that they had been trained by Him. Then, the new disciples would train others. And so on and so on.
What was Jesus’ backup plans, just in case His plan A did not work?
He had no backup plans. Plan A had to work!
Did His plan work?
…“These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also” (Acts 17:6)
So, after thirty-one years of walking with the Lord –albeit flawed at best – I have realized something this morning. My whole journey was specifically designed to destroy my Plans B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, and so forth; and then resign myself to accepting His Plan A for my life.
My prayer today:
Lord, give us American believers the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You so that the eyes of our understanding may be enlightened to the hope of Your calling, to the riches of the glory of Your inheritance, and to the exceeding greatness of of Your power toward us who believe in You. (Based on Ephesians 1:17-19)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.

Plan “A” seems to work the best when we don’t mess it up.
The only flaw with God’s plans is that it includes us, but He’s a great Leader, who is greater than our flaws and blemishes.
This is so good and so true! Thank you, Mr. Larry! God bless!
Thanks. God bless you.
