You’re Still on God’s ‘Plan A’
By Rick Warren

“We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28 (NLT)

God does not have a “Plan B” for your life.

No matter what mistakes you’ve made, you're still on God’s “Plan A” for your life. He has not revoked his original dream for your life. It doesn't matter what other people did to you, what you've done to others or yourself, or what mistakes or poor decisions you’ve made. You can still fulfill God’s dream for your life.

Even your mistakes are part of God's plan. This truth will set you free if you claim it. It will set you free to stop thinking, “Well, I'm not worthy to dream because I’ve messed up too much. I don't deserve to have a big dream.” You don’t have to believe those lies anymore. You serve a bigger God than that!

One of the most famous verses in the Bible, Romans 8:28, says, “We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (NLT).

Everything is in God’s hand—the good, the bad, the evil, the poor decisions, the sins. He didn’t cause all of it, but he is still in control of it all.

And God causes everything to work together for good. The Bible doesn’t say that everything is good—because it's not. There is a lot of sin and evil in the world.

It's not all good. But God causes it all to work together for good. That promise isn’t for everyone; it’s just for those who love God and are called according to his purpose—his dream—for them.

When you think God can’t put back together the pieces of your life, remember that God can do anything. He is still at work—still working out his plan for your life, and still waiting to give you his dream for your life if you haven’t claimed it already.

When you give him your life, God will work to make all the pieces fit together so that your whole life serves his purposes on earth.
