Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING BUILT UP DAY BY DAY INTO GOD’S PURPOSES, DESPITE DEVILISH OPPOSITION

Nehemiah 6:9
For they all wanted to frighten us, thinking, “Their hands will drop from the work, and it will not be done.” But now, O God, strengthen my hands.

Jesus and his disciples were probably standing near the pagan temple of the Greek god Pan near Caesarea Philippi in northern Israel when he turned to his men and asked, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” The temple of Pan was built near a large cave in a rocky cliff near the source of the Jordan River. Water gushed up into a turbulent pool at the opening of the cave, thought to have been bottomless. People would sacrifice their children to Pan by throwing them into the pool. The currents would draw them under and if they immerged meters away in the river below then the people believed Dan was pleased with the sacrifice. Consequently, this cave became known as the gates of hell.

Peter answered Jesus, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Jesus blessed Peter and, perhaps under the shadow of the temple of Pan, said, “I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Jesus is building his Church. You are part of that Church, if you acknowledge the Lordship of Christ, as Peter did. This year is going to be a year of building. The Lord is spiritually building you into a mighty man or woman of God. The Lord is building your local church body just as he is building his body worldwide. The Lord is placing living stone upon living stone in his living temple of which Christ is the Cornerstone.

However, this year will also be a year of opposition. Satan apposes everything God builds. When Nehemiah began rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, as inspired by God, he was opposed on every side. His enemies did not appreciate that he was rebuilding the Beautiful City so that the Jews could worship God. The opposition to the building became so intense that builders built with one hand on their swords.

God has a purpose for you in this living temple he is building; a purpose to see his body grow in spirit and in stature. The Lord has great adventures in store for you as he personally builds your business, your family, your career and your ministry. So, I say to you today, hold fast to the promises of God and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, as he builds you up into the person you’re destined to be. And put on the whole armour of God so that you may be able to take your stand against the schemes of the devil. Jesus is building his Church and even the gates of hell will not prevail against it!

God-tracking is being built up day by day into God’s purposes, despite devilish opposition

Every blessing

As Nehemiah prayed so I pray, ‘But now, O God, strengthen my hands.’

Pray
“Dear Lord, thank that you are building me up into the person you want me to be. Thank you that you have plans to build my family, my business and my church. I totally submit to your building plan. I know the devil will oppose what you build, so I put on the whole armour of God and keep my eyes fixed on my commander-in-chief, Jesus. As Nehemiah prayed so I pray, ‘But now, O God, strengthen my hands.’ Dear Lord, build me. Amen.”

Dear God-tracker

ANNOUNCING: The Reality
A fresh new half-hour Christian radio programme, featuring lives touched and changed for the good, for good by the reality as found in Christ.

A welcome to new subscribers to this free e-mail devotional. Welcome too, to readers of the GodTracker blogs on Linkedin, Wordpress, FaithWiriters and Google Blogger. This e-devotional has been impacting lives since its inception in 2003. GodTracker developed out of a Christian radio programme I produced between 1998 and 2005 called, On Track. On Track was broadcast on shortwave radio across central/southern Africa and via several FM Christian radio stations in the region and enjoyed an estimated listenership of millions.

The Bible says that God knows the plans he has for us. If this is true, then it’s God who knows these plans, we don’t. It also says that God has predestined good works for those who are saved by grace, through faith; we are his workmanship. If this is true, then I believe God has a plan and a purpose for your life and mine. Therefore, we need to look for his plans; we need to track God’s purposes through payer and his Word. This is a process I call, God-tracking.

GodTracker has been adapted for radio and is broadcast on several radio stations around the world as a 60-second radio spot. As part of this radio ministry I have also developed a new half-hour show called, The Reality. The Scripture tells us that the Law of God and religious traditions are a mere shadow, while sure reality is found in Christ. The Reality features short teaching and chats with people whose lives have been touched and changed by the reality of Christ.

If you feel you might commit to help produce The Reality then please consider sowing into this ministry by clicking the DONATE button at godtracker.co.uk to donate via PayPal. More than anything, we appreciate your prayer support for this work.

Keep on tracking the plans and purposes of God.

HERE’S WISHING YOU AND YOURS A VERY BLESSED AND PURPOSEFUL 2017

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS STANDING STRONG AGAINST THE ENEMY IN THE POWER OF GOD’S MIGHT

Luke 10:19
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.” In this context, he is referring to the false prophets who came before him and who were responsible for perpetrating lies; they came as thieves to steal the sheep by their falsehood. Elsewhere, of Satan, Jesus says, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” Therefore, we can safely say that the thief who comes only to steal and kill and destroy is Satan

Satan is the enemy of God and of his people. He is everything that God is not: God is love, Satan is hate; God is truth, Satan is lies; God is a giver, Satan is a thief; God is life, Satan is death and God builds while Satan destroys. From the beginning, Satan has been intent on undermining God’s purposes and stripping man of God’s truth. In Eden, he caused mankind to doubt God’s purpose for them and drew them into rebellion. Satan was not Eve’s friend when he tempted her. Only an enemy would entice someone into falsehood and sin. Since the beginning, Satan is intent on stealing God’s purposes from you and me. Since the beginning, Satan has been determined to destroy you and steal God’s blessings from your life. Since the beginning, Satan has been out to murder God’s people and kill his purposes for them.

Why not make this New Year a time to renew your seeking of God’s gift of life and his benevolent purposes for you? Your enemy, the devil, is still intent on stealing God’s blessings from you and destroying God’s plan for your life. But God knows the plans he has for you. His plans are for your abundance and to build a hopeful future for you; Jesus came to give you abundant life! This is a time to renew your acknowledgment of the Lord in all your ways and to step out in faith, trusting in him every step of the way. And, by the authority of God’s Word, this is a time for you to tread on serpents and scorpions, and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing shall hurt you! By his Blood Jesus triumphed over Satan at Calvary.

I believe that, across the world, the devil has fresh plans to attack God’s people in this year and undermine God’s goodness: Christian persecution, disease, poverty, terrorism, failing economy, and uncertain politics. However, we know that he who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. If God be for us, who can be against us? Nothing shall separate us from the love of God and his purposes for us. In Christ, we are more than conquerors. He is our source and our resource. He is our provider and our helper. He is our comforter and our counsellor. So, commit your ways to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act on your behalf.

God-tracking is standing strong against the enemy in the power of God’s might.

God bless

Dudley

Here’s wishing you and yours a wonderful Emmanuel filled, CHRISTmas.


Dear God Tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS GETTING YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD, FIRST

Luke 6:45
The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

One of my favourite Bible heroes is the great king of Israel, King David. I love David because he was a simple shepherd boy who discovered the secret of constantly keeping his heart pure before God.

David was the youngest son of a regular Hebrew man called, Jesse. Being a shepherd in the Middle East in those days, was a very humble job. Nevertheless, we read how David did his job to the best of his ability, even risking his own life for the safety of his father’s sheep. This humble young man was soon to become the shepherd of the people of God; the greatest king ancient Israel would ever know.

Yet, as we read David’s story we notice that he was less than perfect. Becoming a great warrior-king meant that he was responsible for the deaths of many people, through the acts of war. Also, on one occasion we read how David fell in love with another man’s wife and married her, after sending her husband to his death on the front line. David committed adultery and murder! However, we read that David was called, a man after God’s own heart. In fact, it is from David’s line that we received the promised Messiah and saviour of the world, Jesus.

I believe that God looks at the heart and not the hands. We are told that we are justified by grace, through faith and not the works of our hands. Faith and grace are qualities experienced in the heart, when we believe that Jesus died and rose again to free us from sin. Jesus said that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth will speak. Consequently, because grace and faith are expressed in the heart (and have made us right with God through grace and faith) the actions of our hands will simply reveal the salvation within our hearts. This calls for living a life totally surrendered to the grace of God, with a pure heart before the Lord.

David was a true God Tracker. David lived in God’s grace and David walked by faith. David was not a perfect person but David’s heart was right. When he sinned, he was very quick to repent and walk with a contrite heart before God. Though he was a great king, David knew that he was nothing, had nothing and meant nothing, but for the grace of God. David was made righteous by faith in God’s forgiveness and walked in the integrity of the hope of his salvation. He didn’t always do things right but he knew that purity of heart preceded purity of hand.

God-tracking is getting your heart right with God, first.

God bless

Dudley

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING DELIGHTED IN THE HAPPINESS FOUND IN FOLLOWING CHRIST

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

I realise there are people who go through life with very little difficulty, but these are the exception. For most of us, life is filled with ups and downs (sometimes more downs than ups). However, the secret of being happy is not in looking for happiness itself. Some think happiness is found in pleasure, possessions or people, while others look for happiness in riches. Happiness is illusive and transient. True lasting happiness can only be found by delighting oneself in the Lord.

We all have needs and desires in life. God knows our needs, even before we know them. Jesus taught us not to run after natural pleasures or even natural needs. He said, “Do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.” This is why he told us to look for God’s goodness and God’s Kingdom before looking to meet our own needs or wants. Indeed, God is our Father and no father will spitefully withhold good things from his child.

Whatever your need may be, turn to Abba before you turn anywhere else and trust him to meet that need. Your Father is the Father of heaven and has all power and resource to meet your every need. More than this, he loves you and delights in granting you the desires of your heart. First seek his righteousness so that your desires will line up with his purposes for you. Then delight yourself in the Lord and he will grant you the desires of your heart. So, be delighted to follow his plan for your life; be delighted to spend time with Father in worship and prayer and be delighted to read the Bible, meditating on his Word day and night, Do this and God will fill your life with a contented happiness. Delight yourself in Jesus today and he will make you happy.

God-tracking is being delighted in the happiness found in following Christ.

Fix your eyes on Jesus

GOD-TRACKING IS EXPECTING GOD TO ALWAYS CONFIRM HIS GUIDANCE IN YOUR LIFE

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS EXPECTING GOD TO ALWAYS CONFIRM HIS GUIDANCE IN YOUR LIFE   

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Some say that God never uses physical dimensions when guiding us and that he only guides us through spiritual means. Indeed, God does guide us in spiritual ways: the still small voice of his Spirit in our hearts, an anointed word from Scripture or even through dreams and visions. However, God also uses literal physical incidents to guide us in our choices for living.

In the early 1990s, my wife and I had sensed the Lord’s guidance calling us to leave family and friends in South Africa and move to a new country. We’d had a notion that God was going to move us for some time and were knocking on doors around the world. Eventually a potential opportunity opened for us in the Midlands of England. After much prayer and God seeking, in faith, we felt it was time to sell our house and make plans to move. However, Karen loved our home and still had some reservations about moving.

One afternoon Karen was walking down the long gated driveway of our home in Pretoria praying, “Dear Lord, I’m still not certain about selling up to move to the UK. Do you really want us to sell this house and move?” Just then there was a gust of wind. The weather was good that day; the wind came from nowhere. As small white A5 handbill blew over the gate and landed at her feet. “Oh, this junk-mail gets in everywhere,” Karen thought as she picked up the leaflet to discard it. Her eyes caught the bold print at the top of the page: It’s Time to Sell You House. Karen was mesmerised. How could this ever be a coincidence? She had just spoken these words to God in prayer and now she read them in black and white on the piece of paper in her hand.

Gideon in the Bible asked God for a literal confirmation of his calling on his life. He put out a sheep’s fleece one night and asked God to wet it with dew and prevent the ground around it from being wet. He did this to test that what he sensed God was saying was correct. The next morning all the ground around the fleece was dry but the fleece was very wet. Gideon might have thought this result was a coincidence so he asked God to reverse the process the next night. Sure enough, the next morning the fleece was dry and the ground was wet. God made his point and Gideon obeyed God’s call with great effect.

Coincidence never occurs in prayer. God is sovereign and omniscient. If he can use the sun and the moon to confirm his Word, then he can use even tiny literal incidents in your life to communicate his plans to you. Don’t underestimate God’s ability to use the obvious or mundane to guide you. Try not to confine your opinion of how God speaks to only one format. God is sovereign and omniscient and he will do whatever he chooses to do to get his message through to you. His ways are not like our ways; they are often contrary to our human reason. So, in seeking the plans that God has for you, open your heart to his higher ways and simply expect him to speak.

God-tracking is expecting God to always confirm his guidance in your life   

Fix your eyes on Jesus

Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS LETTING GOD DO THE FIGHTING FOR YOU

Romans 8:37
Know, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

The mighty Philistine warrior stood brazenly brandishing his 6-and-a-half-kilogram spear. Goliath was a giant of a man. He was selected out of the ranks of the Philistines to represent their army in a one-on-one battle against the Israelites. In those times, to minimise loss, a king would select his strongest man to go out against his counterpart from the opposing army in a one-on-one fight. Whoever won the fight and killed his opponent, would win the battle for his army. Goliath was confident that no Israelite would defeat him. “I defy the ranks of Israel this day. Give me a man, that we may fight together.”

King Saul watched in horror as his men cowered in fear. He had no man in his ranks of the stature of Goliath. Just then a young messenger boy was brought to him. “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God? Let no man's heart fail because of him. Your servant will go and fight with this Philistine,” said shepherd-boy David to the king. “All this assembly may know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s.”

We know the end of this story well. Young David kills the giant Goliath with a single slingshot. Israel’s champion conquers the Philistine’s champion. Under the rules of war at the time, this meant that the Israelite army had conquered the Philistine army. So, the Israelites pursued the retreating Philistines, gaining a great victory.

I love this story because it makes clear that David is the champion who won the battle. Out of hundreds of mighty men left standing in their ranks, David was the single individual who took on the giant. He fought in the name of the Lord, in one-on-on combat and defeated the enemy. He knew the battle was the Lord’s, that day. However, though David fought alone, he won the battle for all the men in the ranks behind him. He fought the fight but his men won the war. David was the conqueror while his brothers in the ranks were more than conquerors.

Whatever battle you’re in remember, the battle is not yours; it’s the Lord’s. If you are sure you are walking in the truth (and make sure you are walking in the truth), then you have nothing to defend. The truth will vindicate you. If you’re facing a fight today, be still and wait patiently for the Lord to defend you. Be strong and courageous, Jesus has won the victory! In Christ, you are more than a conqueror!

God-tracking is letting God do the fighting for you.

Fix your eyes on Jesus

Don’t Give Up, Look Up!

Jesus is my champion. In Christ, I am more than a conqueror!

Pray
“Dear Lord, I feel so helpless today. This fight seems to be taking its toll on me. And yet, I know now that I should not be trying to do this on my own. I know the devil is my real enemy and I know that Jesus conquered him at Calvary. Jesus triumphed over all the forces of evil in the cross, making a public spectacle of the devil. My champion, Jesus Christ, fought a one-on-on battle with the enemy and conquered him. Thank you Lord for this victory. Therefore, as a Christian believer and one who walks by faith in Christ, I have won the battle. Like David’s brothers in the ranks were victorious, because David won the fight for them, I too am victorious, because Jesus won the fight for me. Jesus is my champion. In Christ, I am more than a conqueror! Praise God! 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.
