I remember when my ex-husband left. I had NO money. NO plan. NOWHERE to go!
So, when I started sensing even the slightest tension between David and I… I started hiding twenty-dollar bills in my closet.
One stash was in the shoebox with my red heels. A $20 in the very back of my sock drawer. A $50 bill in the edge of my jewelry box.
It was my “In-Case-He-Leaves-Me” fund.
I wasn’t going to get STUCK in the same situation I had with my first husband… not if I could help it!
The money wasn’t enough to save me… but it COULD actually sink me. Subconsciously, I was setting myself up for a fall by expecting my marriage to fail.
That’s what the enemy does. He starts bringing back the hurts of our past and we begin to BRACE ourselves for the impact we think might be coming.
I mean… you saw what happened LAST TIME!
But, I had to have faith that David was different from my
ex-husband. I had to have FAITH in his love for me. Otherwise, I would just be sabotaging our relationship.
In your case, you might be sabotaging your job, dream, health, dating relationship, marriage, kids, or a friendship.
A self-fulfilling future will begin to materialize when we have MORE faith in our fears than we do in God.
Making a back-up plan (just in case God fails us) is kind of insulting. Where is our FAITH?
Trust in God and don’t allow the FEAR of your past to set the course for your FUTURE!
Have you ever had a backup plan, just in case God didn’t come through? You can admit it. (“Y” or “N”)
