“The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.
I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
Psalms 91:14, 16 NLT


And still
Bad things
It’s a lot of bad things
That they wishin’ and wishin’ and wishin’ and wishin’
They wishin’ on me
Bad things
It’s a lot of bad things
That they wishin’ and wishin’ and wishin’ and wishin’
They wishin’ on me.Drake, God’s Plan

As reported in TMZ, who reportedly obtained documents, Drake is attempting to get the trademark for the phrase ‘God’s Plan’ so that merchandise can be created and in turn, the rapper can continue to cash in on his hit song. The documents also claim that Drake could use the ‘God’s Plan’ phrase for clothing merchandise and a TV game show, but nothing more has been confirmed.

To his credit, Drake gave away close to a million dollars to different people when he made the video “God’s Plan.” For example, he gave one young lady a check for $50K for graduate school.

As much as I love the generosity of Drake in this video I have to disagree with his wanting to trademark the phrase “God’s Plan” for his own financial gain. God’s plan is free for everybody!

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

God’s plan is…

  1. He rescues those who love him. Jesus said, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added to you!”
  2. He will protect those who trust in my name. Drake wants to protect “God’s Plan” but it’s God’s plan that protects those who put their trust in him. We can’t trademark God’s Plan. It’s something he gives when we put our trust in him.
  3. He will reward us with long life and salvation. God’s plan is legally binding. It has an eternal guarantee. Once we give our life to Jesus there is nothing and nobody that can separate us from the love of God. God’s Plan!

Dear God-

Thank you for laying out a plan for my life. Even though there have been a lot of people wishing bad things on me, your plan prevailed over their schemes. Help me to put all my trust in you knowing that you will be the one to protect my interests. There is no other plan greater than yours. I will trust in you always!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
