Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS FIRST, GETTING ON TRACK WITH GOD, THROUGH CHRIST

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Fourteen years ago a listener of my radio show, On Track wrote an email to me asking me to send him a hardcopy version of the content of my show. On Track came about after the Lord revealed to me how the Christian walk is seldom clear-cut. In my humble 55 years of life, I have found that, if I acknowledge God in all my ways, he will always direct my paths. However, the paths I often find myself on are seldom direct; they seem to progress, as it were, from A to B to C and then off to X and Y, before getting back to D. But all along my life’s track, I have found God has a plan for me to both impact and be impacted by people and circumstances, along the way. He knows the plans he has for me, I don’t, so I need to remain on track with God’s plans for me wherever they may take me. Hence the title of my radio show.

All along this track of life I have found two ingredients to be invaluable in my God-tracking: God’s Spirit and God’s Word. Tracking God’s will can be precarious at times, to say the least. Life can be filled with many ups and many downs. Life can be thwarted with challenges, changes and choices. At every corner in life, I need clear guidance which way to turn. At every obstacle in life, I need strength and tenacity to overcome. Without Christ, I think I would have been in a right quandary in facing life’s complications. The truth is, Jesus is my way and he is my life. God’s Word is the lamp that lights my path and the fellowship of his Holy Spirit is the power that moves my feet along my path. I have discovered that the Word of God is found in the Bible and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit is found in prayer. Without these I would be lost.

How about you? Have you found life to be a guessing game? How do you know you’ve made the right choices? Listen: In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Finding happiness and success begins with making the greatest choice you could ever make – choosing Christ! It could be you’ve been reading this weekly devotional for many years but never actually surrender your life to Jesus Christ. Why not do it now? Believe that Jesus died and rose again to reconcile you to God and confess him as Lord. It’s no good doing one without the other, you need to believe and confess. God does have a plan for you to both impact and be impacted by people and circumstances, as you follow your life’s track. God does have a plan for you to be a God-tracker, but it starts with getting on track with God’s purposes, through Christ. So, seek God first in life and his Word will become a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.

God-tracking is first, getting on track with God, through Christ.

Keep your eyes on Jesus

From this point on, O God, help me remain on track with your will in life

Pray
“Dear God, I realise now that I have never totally surrendered my life to you. I confess that I have tried to follow my own instincts in making life choices rather than acknowledging you in everything I do. Please forgive me. I put my faith in the power of your Holy Spirit and the light of you Word to guide me every day. I repent of all sin and ask you to take your rightful place in my heart. I believe that Jesus died and rose again to free me from sin and death, and now confess Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour. From this point on, O God, help me remain on track with your will in life. Amen.”

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS KEEPING YOUR EYES ON JESUS AND YOUR HEART SOFT

Jeremiah 23:29
Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord,
and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

At school I was taught that the hardest substance known to man is the diamond. Well I beg to differ. I believe the hardest substance known to man is not any physical material; the hardest substance known to man is the very heart of man himself. Because of the hardness of heart wars have been fought. Because of the hardness of heart men and women have missed out God’s call to ministry. Because of the hardness of heart men and women reject the love of God and die in sin. Because of the hardness of heart successful marriages end up in divorce.

I once knew a young couple who had been married for several years when the husband fell in love with another woman. It’s the age-old story of a strong marriage being shipwrecked by tainted love. The young man thought that he loved his wife but when opportunity presented itself, he found himself in the arms of another. It was, however, a genuine love he felt for the other woman but it was wrong love. It wasn’t long before his secret was revealed and the deluded husband found himself face to face with his distraught wife. He repented but, sadly, their hearts had become hardened. Gradually their marriage flagged and amidst much pain and confusion the two came to the point of divorce. However, as Christians (indeed, this scenario does happen to Christians), they both knew divorce was not a viable option. One day, as they were discussing separation, they paused and looked into each other’s eyes. Just then the word of God came to them. God’s Word did what it always does best – it shattered their hardened hearts like a hammer shatters a rock in pieces: God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, and So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth, and I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

The hardest substance known to man became putty in the hands of the Word of God. A cold decision was then made to not separate. An equally cold decision was made to undo wrong love and be determined to love what God had ordained. God’s grace burst through as repentance and forgiveness abounded. Today, I’m very happy to report that this dear couple are more in love now than they were ever before, thriving as husband and wife

Dear God Tracker, has the Lord recently been speaking to you about something personal in your life? Have you heard the call of God to serve him fulltime; have you heard God’s call to totally surrender your life to him; have you sensed the nudge of the Holy Spirit to witness to a friend or work colleague? Dear God Tracker, have you been hardening your heart in your relationships, believing that you are always in the right? Remember, pride comes before a fall and God exalts those who humble themselves. Love is a choice! Choose to love as Christ loved you. God’s word to you is this: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” God looks at the heart and not the hands. Whatever you do, don’t allow your heart to harden.

God-tracking is keeping your eyes on Jesus and your heart soft

Every blessing

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS BUILDING THE MODEL OF YOUR LIFE ON GOD’S PROTOTYPE

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

I once worked as a computer network controller for a major car manufacturer in South Africa. My office was in the IT department, located at the assembly plant for all models of the car. This was back in the good-old-days of hardwired computer networks, so part of my job required me to trace cabling throughout the factory. I loved this part of the job because it meant I could see how the cars were built. From the metal presses to the final body coating I could observe how luxury cars were expertly assembled.

From time to time an air of mystery would creep across the plant. A memo would make it rounds instructing staff to not divulge any information about the new secret shapes perceived under covers at the Research & Development department. A new model prototype had arrived from overseas and was being tested. From this prototype, many new luxury cars would be modelled. Once tested and approved, the design specifications of this prototype were fed into every computer along the assembly line, resulting in thousands of expertly crafted luxury cars being produced on its specifications.
 
Jesus was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit. He is not like any other man before or after. He is the Son of God – Emmanuel – God with us. He is called the Word of God, that is, the Word became flesh and dwelt on earth. Jesus Christ is the exact literal image of the eternal invisible God. Jesus is God incarnate. He is the sinless perfect prototype for the regenerate man. His plans have no flaws. His design is a mirror of the Creator. As with any prototype, Jesus the Christ was tested and approved. After his baptism by John, where God affirmed him as his perfect Son, Jesus was led into the wilderness where he endured intense temptation to sin. These tests were gruelling but Jesus, God’s prototype, stood strong. You see, he is designed according to the perfect blueprint – God himself.

From this immaculate and perfect prototype, God has produced many, many similar models. You are one of them, if you acknowledge Christ. You see, when you confessed Jesus as your Lord and put your faith in his death and resurrection, you were born again. Your old design fell away and you were remodelled according to his perfect blueprint. Because Jesus suffered intense temptation when he was tested, he will help you in your tests. In him, you are more than a conqueror. In him you stand saved, delivered and proved.

God-tracking is building the model of your life on God’s Prototype

Keep your eyes on Jesus

I choose to plan my life according to your plans for me. Thank you, Jesus, that you suffered when you were tempted. Because of your suffering, you help me when I am tempted. I repent of all sin and fix my eyes on Jesus, the perfecter of my faith. Jesus is my example. Therefore, I base every choice, every relationship, every activity in my life on his blueprint for holy living. Amen.”

Dear God-tracker
 
GOD-TRACKING IS PUTTING YOUR ASSURANCE IN GOD’S PARAMOUNT WILL

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

God-tracking is all about walking within the will of God. In the prayer Jesus taught us to pray he said, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” God is high and exalted. He is our Sovereign Majesty, his character is supreme, his power unlimited and his will is paramount. When we pray for God’s will to be done we’re handing over complete free reign to God to work in our lives as he chooses. Author and Bible teacher, Kay Arthur says it like this, “The will of God for your life is simply that you submit yourself to him each day and say, ‘Father, your will for today is mine. Your pleasure for today is mine. Your work for today is mine. I trust you to be God. You lead me today and I will follow.’”

I believe, without doubt, that God does have plans and purposes for our lives. Through Christ, God has rescued us from the clutches of sin and death. We are saved through grace by faith to become his workmanship. When we choose to put our faith in his grace (and remember, grace is God’s doing), he will work all things out in our lives – good and bad – according to his will. God knows all things. He knows our past our present and our future, so let us acknowledge his knowledge in all our ways and trust that he will direct our paths according to his perfect will for our lives.

And here’s God’s will for you, from Psalm 91:

•    He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty
•    For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence
•    He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler
•    You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday
•    A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you
•    For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways
•    On their hands, they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone
•    You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot
•    “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name.
•    “When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honour him
•    “With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

It takes a mind shift to track the will of God; a shift from the natural to the supernatural. This shift can only be achieved through prayer and God’s Word. So, renew your heart and your mind by filling it with the Word of God. God’s Word is God’s will. Do this and you will test and approve his perfect plan for your life.

God-tracking is putting your assurance in God’s paramount will

Every blessing

Dudley

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS PUTTING YOUR CONFIDENCE IN GOD AND REFUSING TO GIVE UP!

1 Thessalonians 5:24
He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.

My little grandson lay on a small bed in the ICU of the children’s hospital. Pipes and cables coming from his little body, this tiny 3-week-old was connected to machines that both monitored his vital signs and sustained his life. A few days prior Ruben was rushed to hospital, gravely ill. Convulsing violently, the doctors tried to reduce his body temperature, to no avail. His little body was trembling, but not a sound came from his mouth. Suddenly my wife and I and Ruben’s parents were hastily ushered out of the small cubical, as an emergency team rushed in with resuscitation equipment. Ruben had stopped breathing. My son and his wife held each other, sobbing. Karen and I stood by a window gazing at the children’s play area outside. “Dear God, we rebuke this illness. We rebuke this death. You are the Lord our healer. Your word has instructed us to lay hands on the sick; this we’ve done. We claim Ruben’s life and healing, in Jesus’ name!”

From the start of his illness, we prayed for Ruben’s healing. The scriptures tell us that God is our healer. The Bible says that if we lay hands on the sick, they will recover. It also says that a prayer of faith shall make the sick person well. Well, Karen and I and Ruben’s parents were praying that prayer of faith. We stood on God’s Word without wavering.

Ruben was resuscitated and subsequently rushed off to the Intensive Care Unit at a children’s hospital in another town. I could tell the doctors were very concerned for him. The ICU staff were set in for the long hall in caring for little Ruben. But we had prayed! Twenty-four hours after he was admitted to ICU my grandson opened his eyes. A few days later he was on his way home. Our God is the Lord who heals!

Faith outs its confidence in the other. When one climbs aboard an aeroplane one does not have faith in his own skills to fly the craft but places his complete confidence in the one he cannot see, he who is both skilled and willing to raise him together with a couple of hundred other people, 33 thousand feet above the ground and then land them safely again at their destination. As Corrie Ten Boom said, “Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable and receives the impossible.” Faith in God is confidence in his power and willingness to meet our needs, heal our sick and guide our every footstep along our life’s track.

Whatever obstacle you’re facing today; whatever your need, be it healing, provision or guidance, stand on God’s Word without wavering. He is faithful and he will do it!

God-tracking is putting your confidence in God and refusing to give up!

Every blessing

Dudley

You are the Lord my guide! You are faithful and you will do it. Thank you, God my Father. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS HAMMERING AWAY AT OBSTACLES IN LIFE WITH TENACIOUS FAITHFULNESS

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS HAMMERING AWAY AT OBSTACLES IN LIFE WITH TENACIOUS FAITHFULNESS

2 Corinthians 4:16
So, we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away,
our inner self is being renewed day by day.

Blow after blow John beat away at the brick wall with his sledge hammer. The wall was not high but it was sturdy. The hammer fell at the base of the wall with force… twenty-seven, twenty-eight, twenty-nine, thirty blows. John paused and wiped his brow. His arms ached, yet the wall stood firm. Thump! He hit the wall with another blow. The wall fell in a heap of dusty rubble at his feet. The question arises, which blow brought the wall down?

In the book of Daniel, we read how Daniel prayed and fasted for 3 weeks, seeking God for the deliverance of his people from Babylonian bondage. Twenty-one days had passed then, on the last day of his fast, God revealed great mysteries to the prophet in a vision. Daniel did not experience the vison after only two days or eight days or ten days of prayer. Daniel endured his 3-week fast, day after day, waiting on God, not knowing when God would answer. That great vision arrived, according to God’s timing, on the last day of his fast. The question arises, which day of prayer brought on God’s revelation to Daniel?

Tenacious faithfulness is seen in both these stories. Neither men knew which moment would bring the fulfilment of their cause, yet they stubbornly persisted until the answer came. So, which blow against the wall; which day of fasting, brought on the desired result? The answer… all of them. With passionate hope these men set out on their quests, persisting in their causes without any visible results until, finally, the answer came. Each of John’s blows weakened the wall until the final one brought it crashing down. For Daniel, each day of prayer and fasting added to the other until the moment arrived when God came through in a great vision. Endurance. Persistence. Tenacity.

By the Holy Spirit Paul said, “I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Dear friend, never doubt for one minute that you are making progress in your faith walk, provided you keep your eyes on Christ. Every up and every down adds to the other until you eventually excel in the purposes of God. Don’t lose heart as you slog away at the walls in your life. Your inner self is being renewed day by day. So, don’t give up, look up! Look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen, in tenacious faithfulness.

God-tracking is hammering away at obstacles in life with tenacious faithfulness

Every blessing

I choose now to lift up my arm and to continue hammering away at these walls in my life with tenacious faithfulness. I put my trust in you, I put my faith in your purposes in all I face in life. God, I will not give up; I will look up and fix my eyes on Jesus who faithfully endured the cross, scoring its shame, to go on and sit at your right hand in glory. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS CALLING ON THE NAME OF JESUS!

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS CALLING ON THE NAME OF JESUS!

Psalm 72:12
For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.

“He bashed my head against the wall and beat me until I passed out,” said Raj as she related her life story with me in a radio interview. “All because I was prevented from going through with an arranged marriage he had planned for me.” Raj had grown up under intense physical and emotional abuse. She had been repeatedly raped since a very early age. Her parents were not Christians but they were very spiritual people, however, the spirits they worship were not of God. One day, in her mother’s prayer room, Raj called on god for help – any god. To her surprise, her prayers were answered. Not until many years later, after being introduced to Jesus, did Raj realise that it was the only True God who had answered her childhood prayer.

“In my mind, I tried calling on all the names of all the gods and gurus I knew, but he continued to strangle me,” said Raj describing how she had been attacked by a man who she had developed a relationship with after fleeing her home at 18. “Then from deep down I remembered the Christian God. I called, ‘Jesus!’ and instantly he released his grip,” she said. “I was stunned. Sadly though, I didn’t give my life to Jesus at that time. My life was still in a mess. I just wanted to die. One day I tried to commit suicide but God prevented me from succeeding. It was then that I realised, Jesus was the only true God. He’d saved my life – more than once. He healed my pain and restored my hope,” said Raj. “I gave him me.”

Raj Holness had had no education about Jesus Christ or the God of Abraham. Her parents were polytheists, yet when she had called out in total despair the Lord our God had answered her. God is no respecter of persons; he doesn’t only hear the cries of Christians. (In fact, if God only listened to Christian believers, I would not be writing these words to you today.) He is caring, impartial and deeply gracious, and saves all who call on is name.

Dear friend, as you read this you, may be able to relate to Raj’s story. You may be suffering rejection or find yourself under emotional attack. Let me encourage you to call on the name of Jesus, in faith. On the other hand, you may not be under such intense abuse, yet may be feeling low and dejected, today. It could be you simply need a new lease on life – a fresh breath of life. God’s Word tells us that faith pleases God and he rewards those who earnestly seek him. So, if you’re weary and burdened, come to him in faith now and he will give your soul rest.

God-tracking is calling on the name of Jesus!

God bless you

Dudley

Don’t Give Up, Look Up!

Dear Lord, in faith, I give you me
Pray
“Dear loving God, I need your help. My life is in a mess. I have been abused and offended many times in the past. I feel dejected and let down. I call on your name, Lord Jesus, save me now! I come to you under this burden, give me rest, O Lord. Take away my pain and give me a fresh breath of life. For my part, I repent of any wrong I have done and I choose to forgive my offenders as you taught me to pray, ‘forgive me my transgressions as I forgive those who transgress against me.’ Dear Lord, in faith, I give you me. Amen.”

What is GodTracker?
GodTracker is a weekly e-mail devotional based on the premise that God has a plan for our lives. His word calls us to seek his will by acknowledging him in all our ways and tracking this plans in faith.
GodTracker owes its origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, On Track. Although On Track went off-air in 2005, GodTracker has continued to help people to track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
