GOD-TRACKING IS STAYING ALERT

Ephesians 5:13-14
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."

With bloodied sweat on his brow, Jesus made his way the few paces back to his friends who he’d ask to join him in prayer in the olive grove. He’d been travailing before the Father for hours. It was well past midnight and he knew that he would soon be arrested, tried, convicted and crucified for crimes he’d never committed. "Could you men not keep watch with me?" he asked them. "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
John and his two friends, James and Peter had sat down a stone’s throw away from Jesus and watched him pray. They had a feeling that something dreadful was about to take place, but fatigue had overtaken them. Sadly, they could not keep their eyes open at this late hour, leaving Jesus to face the cup of God’s wrath, alone.

Many years later well after Peter and James had been martyred, the risen and ascended Jesus Christ appeared to John in a vision on the Greek Isle of Patmos. Before he revealed to John what would come at the end of all time, Jesus gave John instructions to the churches of Asia Minor. To the church in Sardis he said, “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.” I can’t help wondering if John thought back to that auspicious moment in Gethsemane when he had fallen asleep watching the Son of God bear the weight of wrath.

As we track God’s purposes we often become blasé about his commands and instructions. We become so familiar with prayer, worship and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit that we fall asleep in our complacency. The danger of this is that we miss the blessings of God and fail to follow his plans. We are told to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the author of our faith. If we lose focus of the Saviour we will become weak and open ourselves to the arrest of the enemy. Let’s open ourselves rather to God’s word. And God’s word to us today is to “Wake up! Strengthen what remains.”

I shake myself awake and strengthen what remains, for I believe that you are coming soon, Lord Jesus

“Dear God, I am sorry for my slumber. I apologise for my apathy and repent of becoming complacent about your Word, worship, prayer and fellowship. You have saved me by the blood of Jesus and I have been taking this fact for granted. I am so sorry, O Lord. I stir myself awake now. I rouse myself to enjoy every moment with you as though it was the moment I first asked Jesus into my life. Help me to celebrate every living minute in the freshness of your presence. Help me to live every day with my eyes on Jesus. And help me to make the most of every occasion for the Gospel. I shake myself awake and strengthen what remains, for I believe that you are coming soon, Lord Jesus. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS HAVING FAITH IN GOD’S PLANS, EVEN THROUGH SHIPWRECK

GOD-TRACKING IS HAVING FAITH IN GOD’S PLANS, EVEN THROUGH SHIPWRECK

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope

The night was very dark. The wind howled through torn rigging like a ravenous wolf. Lashing rain combined with smashing white waters, flooded the deck. The crew and prisoners on board this vessel had been lashed by a ferocious storm at sea for weeks. They were exhausted and feared certain death. Paul, a prisoner aboard the ship said, “Men, I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, and he said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.’”

True to his Word, God preserved all their lives. The ship ran aground near Malta, but all on board were saved. When they landed, the people of the island welcomed them warmly. While making a fire, Paul was bitten by a viper, but when he failed to die the islanders thought he was a god. Paul hastily corrected their perception, telling them about the power God to save, deliver and heal, through Jesus Christ. The result was a great revival on Malta. The whole island turned to Jesus and many were healed of their infirmities. Nearly 2,000 years later, the island of Malta still enjoys a strong Christian influence.

So often I hear people say that their lives have been shipwrecked by circumstances beyond their control. I think we can safely say that Paul’s shipwreck, as described above, was beyond his control. Yet, God used the circumstances of this apparent disaster to bring many, many into his kingdom and performed miracles of healing, to boot. I think we can safely say that the event of Paul’s shipwreck was well within God’s plan for the apostle’s life.

Acknowledge God in all your ways and he will direct your life’s track. Even through the storms of looming shipwreck, God’s purposes will prevail. God knows the plans he has for you, so have faith in his designs. Keep your eyes on Christ. Look through your shipwreck experience, scorn its shame, and go on to enjoy the blessings God has in store for you. God’s plans are always for your welfare, to give you a future filled with hope.

Dear Lord, use the circumstances of my difficulties to bring you glory and draw people into a deeper walk with you. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS GETTING A FRESH SENSE OF GOD’S PURPOSE

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.

One of golf's immortal moments came when a Scotsman demonstrated the new game to American President Ulysses Grant. He carefully placed the ball on the tee and took a mighty swing. The club hit the turf and sprayed dirt all over the President's beard and suit, while the ball sedately waited on the tee. Again and again, the Scotsman swung but he missed. President Grant waited patiently through six attempts and then quietly said, "There seems to be a fair amount of exercise in the game, but I fail to see the purpose of the ball.”

Some mornings I wake up void of enthusiasm, wrestling to affirm the true reasons I do what I do. It’s not that I have been demotivated by anything or anyone, just that I feel unmotivated to get on with it. Ever been there? Inevitably, I have taken on so many activities that I’ve burned out and lost focus. It’s at times like these, I need a fresh sense of purpose.

The Scriptures tell us that God has a plan and a purpose for each of us. God is omniscient and omnipresent – he knows each of us personally. He knows the plans he has for you and me. However, we often assume we know God’s plans and grab hold of every opening that comes our way. Sadly, we often end up missing the purposes God has planned for us and finding ourselves swinging away at life, missing the ball at every strike. We need to learn to trust God’s purposes for our lives. As Brian Houston says, “When the Lord gives you a sense of purpose, that purpose ruins you for anything else. Nothing else will ever bring true peace, because peace is found only in pursuing the purposes of God.”

GOD-TRACKING IS GETTING OUT TO RESCUE THE DROWNING

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

It was winter in New York when Captain Sullenberger crash landed his wounded Airbus A320 on the Hudson River. The plane had suffered a bird strike, disabling both engines. Sullenberger had no option but to bring the craft down on the freezing waters. Miraculously the plane remained intact. Once down, Sullenberger and his crew evacuated the passengers, most of whom stood on the wings of the craft, awaiting rescue. One hundred and fifty-five people were on board US Airways Flight 1549 that day, including passengers and crew; 155 people survived the crash.

I was watching the 2016 film, Sully for the second time, featuring Tom Hanks staring as the airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. The film portrayed an accurate account of the 15th January 2009 event. Intrigued, I watched as the crew and passengers stood precariously on the wings of the Airbus as it slowly sank in the frigid winter waters. Captain Sully was indeed, heroic in landing the plane securely on the Hudson, but he was not the only hero. One by one, humble civilian ferries and boats pulled alongside the stricken aircraft, rescuing all 155 people from certain drowning.

As I watch I sensed the Holy Spirit of God speak gently into my heart. You and all those who are called by my name, are just like these humble craft; called to rescue the lost! Rescue those who are on the edge of death, though they don’t even realise it. Go!

Jesus gave us a commission: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. We are compelled to rescue those who are on the precipice of eternal death – compelled by command and compelled by love. We have been commissioned by our Commander in Chief to come alongside and throw out the lifejacket of his Gospel to rescue those who are lost, though they don’t know it. If we delay or just drift about watching them drown their blood will be on our hands. The times are drawing in. Jesus’ return is imminent. We need to do as he has commanded, GO – Get Out!

I wept and as I watched the humble un-trained crews and passengers of those day-to-day ferries rescuing the perishing.

GOD-TRACKING IS PRAYING WHILE PATIENTLY WAITING FOR GOD’S PLANS TO BE FULFILLED

2 Thessalonians 3:7
For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us,
because we were not idle when we were with you

Subscribe by email at godtracker.co.uk
I pulled up next to a tour coach at a traffic light. It was loaded with fun seeking people at the start of their vacation, all laughing and chatting about days ahead filled with sun and sights. But that red light was taking ages to change. Tapping my steering wheel impatiently, a thought dropped into my heart, “There are times in life when I feel as though I’m just sitting stationary in an old bus, idling at a red traffic light – chug, chug, chug.

The words of God through the prophet Jeremiah came to mind: “I know the plans I have for you. Plans to give you a hope and future.” Jeremiah had prophesied that the people of Judah were to be conquered by the Babylonians and taken into exile. He said they would remain in exile for 70 years but after this time God would restore them and prosper his people once again. Young Daniel was one of those taken into exile. Daniel’s heart was right before God. I could imagine Daniel reading Jeremiah’s words with anticipation of good times ahead, yet, as the years dragged by, perhaps he couldn’t help wondering when the light was going to change. However, Daniel was not idle during his time in exile. He was a man of prayer, so much so that he was even thrown into a pit of lions, because he dared pray to Yahweh. He was also a prophet who interpreted dreams and prophesied coming ages. Daniel made the most of his waiting years. His prayer witness and his words changed even the hardened heats of the tyrant kings. And his witness and words are still changing lives today. Daniel did not idly resign to his fate. While he waited for God’s plans for his people to mature, Daniel rose up as praying man faith.

Chug, chug, chug, spluttered the old bus at the red light next my car. The Holy Spirit spoke into my heart: “So, while waiting for your light to change, pray, pray, pray! For I know the plans I have for you. Seek them in prayer. A time of idling is not a time to be idle.”

“Dear Lord, it feels like I’ve been stopped at this place for ages. I know you have plans for my life and I know you have a purpose for me to see the fruit of my work, but sometimes I feel as though I’m just idling away at a red light, waiting for change to happen. So, Lord, I pray for your plans to work out in my life and the lives of those around me. I pray for patience and a pray for peace. I pray for your kingdom to come and your will to be done. I fix my mind on things above and my eyes on Jesus, Dear Lord, I determine to wait patiently for my circumstances to line up with your plans for my life. Amen.”

Subscribe to GodTracker HERE
Karen and I were trekking home after a tremendous few days at a Christian conference. We were driving southbound on a main motorway in the British West Midlands. Our side of the motorway was free flowing, thankfully, but as we drove on we noticed a large articulated truck that had pulled off the carriageway on the opposite side of the road. The large vehicle had endured a blowout and its crew were changing the wheel. Due the size of the vehicle and the hazard it presented to other road users, the police had cordoned off two lanes, resulting in all the upcoming traffic being directed into one lane past the broken-down truck. Consequently, the traffic had backed up for miles leading up to the bottleneck at the road incident. Still charged from the touch of the Holy Spirit at the conference, I had a flash of inspiration cross my mind. The Lord dropped a word into my heart: “This is where so many of my children find themselves these days, backed up at a bottleneck in life.”

I know from my own walk along God’s track of life, that we, as 21st century Christians, become so involved and committed to myriad activities that, when we come across a little hiccup along the motorways of life, we become backed up and slow down like cars in a traffic jam. Consequently, we become stressed out, anxious and impatient. By our own reasoning we think we have everything under our control so when the unforeseen happens, we end up blaming others or God for messing up the free flow of our lives. But, God often uses the unforeseen little holdups in life to force us to stop and survey our journey. It’s when the unforeseen little holdups happen that we notice the scenery for the first time. And it’s often when the unforeseen little holdups happen that God begins to thin our lives out and teach a crucial lesson in patience and endurance. Our God is a patient God.

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING READY TO CAST YOUR BREAD UPON THE WATERS

Ecclesiastes 11:1
Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days

Subscribe by e-mail
There’s an Jewish tale that goes: Bar Kappara, an old Jewish sage, was once walking along the seashore of Caesarea, when he noticed a shipwreck out at sea. As he watched, he saw a man swimming from the wreck towards the shore. When the man reached land, he almost collapsed with weariness. Bar Kappara went forward and gave him a helping hand. He then took him home, clothed him, fed him and offered him some money. So, the man went away refreshed and restored.

Some years later, the Jews of Caesarea found themselves in a predicament with the local authorities and decided to send a petition to the Governor. They chose Bar Kappara to go and speak on their behalf. Bar Kappara prayed to God to for guidance. When he reached the palace, he asked to see the Governor. As he was ushered into the presence of the Governor, to his great astonishment, Bar Kappara recognized him as the same man whom he had once saved and helped on the shores of Caesarea.

"What can I do for you, my friend?" said the Governor, recognizing Bar Kappara as his onetime friend in need. "Bar Kappara earnestly begged the Governor to use his influence in helping his fellow countrymen deal with the pending need. Listening carefully to the story, the Governor said, “I will gladly do this favour for you, my friend, because when I was in such a desperate state you helped me to the maximum of your ability, without asking for or expecting any reward. Because of your unselfishness and kindness to me, I shall now help your suffering brethren at your request."
The Governor gave a large sum of money to Bar Kappara saying, “Take this money back as a gift from me. For, although the sum of money you gave me was not as great as this, to me it meant everything at the time of my need. You may return to your brethren and tell them that I am helping them, out of gratitude to you."

Bar Kappara joyfully hurried back with the good news to his friends who were anxiously awaiting his return. Great was the rejoicing among them at Bar Kappara's good tidings. They all acknowledged how true was the saying of King Solomon: "Cast thy bread upon the waters for you shall find it after many days."

You may be faced with the prospect of letting go of a vision or a dream today; or God may be asking you to sow into the needs of another. Be sure that, if you acknowledge God in all your ways, he will guide your life’s track. And if he is guiding your life’s track then you can be sure that the words of Jesus will hold true for you: “For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

ANNOUNCING SURE REALITY MEDIA

The e-Devotional helping to keep you on-track

22 September 2017


ANNOUNCING SURE REALITY MEDIA
These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.
Colossians 2:17
I would like to begin by thanking you for your faithful support of GodTracker. This e-mail devotional has been running for 14 years. It began as a result of an e-mail received from a listener of a radio show produced by me, Dudley Anderson called, On Track asking for an e-mail version of the content of the show. Thus, began the weekly e-mail we then called, trACker. It was at this time that the Lord gave me the concept of God-tracking. A God tracker is a person intent on seeking and tracking the plans and purposes of God; for the Bible tells us that God knows the plans he has for us. So began the ministry of the weekly e-devotional, GodTracker hosted at godtracker.co.uk

Some years back we began producing a 1-minute radio spot based on GodTracker called, the Sixty-Second GodTracker. This spot has enjoyed air-time on many radio stations around the world. Last year we added the half-hour talk show, The Reality to the programmes of this ministry. The Reality features people from all walks of life who have been impacted by the reality of Christ. The most recent addition to these programmes is a radio segment featuring a full read of the e-devotional GodTracker. (You can listen to the radio programmes of SRM at, surereality.net/listen)

As a cover for this work we are launching Sure Reality Media or SRM. As a non-profit ministry, SRM will oversee the writing and distribution of GodTracker and the production of Christian radio programmes. In addition to radio and print programmes, SRM will also host an annual conference called, The Reality Conference. SRM will be tithing into the work of Boithuto Community Project in Johannesburg, South Africa. We value your support greatly!

We have the potential of broadcasting our radio shows on shortwave radio across central-southern Africa and across Europe and North Africa. There is also the possibility of being listed on a Christian radio ministry that provides programming for hundreds of stations in the US and around the world. These sources will provide a reach to more 600 million people! But we can’t do it alone.
Please pray for this new media ministry. In a media world consumed by so-called, fake news it’s great to know we can offer good news. So please consider becoming an SRM Ministry Partner. It will require about £20,000 to comfortably establish SRM. We value your support greatly!

GOD-TRACKING IS BEGUN BY CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD

1 Corinthians 15:55
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”

Subscribe to GodTracker by e-mail at godtracker.co.uk
As a pastor, I am often asked to conduct funeral services. All funerals are sad, as we remember the passing of friends and loved ones. To me, the saddest funerals are those I conduct where the deceased has not acknowledged Christ as Lord. However, my loving counsel to believing loved ones is, only hope! No one knows the last thoughts of a soul on their death bed. The old saying goes, “My life flashed before my eyes.” If this is true then it could be that, at the very last split second before death, the dear soul may have called on the name of the Lord. And all who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.


At every funeral I conduct I like to talk about life. It may seem an odd thing to do at a funeral, but Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,” The reality of life on earth is, we are all going to die. That is, there is coming a moment when the chemistry of your and my body will cease to react and our hearts will cease beating. But this body I have is only a jar of clay that contains my soul. My soul and my spirit, once created by God, are immortal. That is, the real me will always exist, even after my body has ceased to function. The question is, where will the real me spend eternity? Because of sin, my soul has come short of God’s glory and, unless reconciled to God, will suffer the eternal death we call hell. However, the truth is, God has made a way for me to know his forgiveness of sin and to be reconciled to his life, through Christ. Indeed, God loved the world so much that he sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, that whoever believes in him shall not suffer eternal death, but shall enjoy eternal life. Death has lost its sting!
And so it is, at every funeral I conduct I talk about life. This life is free and available to all who call on the name of the Lord, before it’s too late.

God-tracking is begun by calling on the name of the Lord.

GOD-TRACKING IS PRAISING GOD IN THE HALLWAY

Psalm 27:14
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

“And while you’re waiting for God to open that door, praise him in the hallway!” I read the Facebook posting on my timeline and smiled. I immediately remembered what the scriptures say in Revelation. John the Apostle was given messages to the 7 churches of Asia Minor. To the church of Philadelphia, he was told to write that what Christ opens no man can shut and what he shuts no man can open. Then he went on to say that God himself had placed before the Philadelphians an open door.

God-tracking is all about acknowledging God in all our ways and seeking him by faith. If we do this then God will lead us according to his plans for our lives. In the process of tracking God’s plans, we often encounter so called, “doors” of opportunity. In other words, we’re presented with options to walk through new doors in life as God gives us opportunity. Sometimes these doors are way open and all we need do is step on in. However, sometimes we find ourselves in a large palatial hallway with several doors before us (or opportunities), all closed. It is here that we need to pause before grabbing the first available door handle and thrusting the door open, on our own initiative. It is here that we need to wait on God and wait for God to orchestrate the circumstances of our lives to fall in line with his plans, before a new door opens to us. It’s in this waiting that we need to patiently praise God and submit to his will. So, while you’re waiting for God to open that door, praise him in the hallway!

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE ONLY BY THE BLESSING OF THE LORD

The blessing of the Lord relieves you from the responsibility of striving for achievement, because the blessing of the Lord is powered by God’s sufficient grace.

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE ONLY BY THE BLESSING OF THE LORD

Proverbs 10:22
The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it

Subscribe for FREE at http://godtracker.co.uk
One morning R. C. Chapman, known as the apostle of love, was asked how he was feeling. "I'm burdened this morning!" said Chapman. But his happy smile contradicted his words. So, the questioner exclaimed in surprise, "Are you really burdened, Mr. Chapman?" He replied, "Yes, but it's a wonderful burden. It's an overabundance of blessings for which I cannot find enough time or words to express my gratitude!" Seeing the quizzical look on his friend’s face, Chapman added with a smile, "I am referring to Psalm 68:19, which fully describes my condition. In that verse, the Father in heaven reminds us that He 'daily loads us with benefits.'"

Everybody faces down days from time to time. I had one, the other day. For no reason at all, in the middle of the day, I began feeling completely unmotivated and miserable (yes, even pastors have down days). I had no major issues at the office and the family was good, but somehow, I just wanted to shut down and sleep. Just the thought of writing another word or answering the next call became a mountain I dreaded to climb. Probably a lying attack from Satan, but I began questioning my levels of success and achievement. I went to bed that night wondering why I do what I do.

The next morning, I dragged myself to my normal spot where I read and pray. Still pondering the feelings of the day before a scripture came to mind. Through the haze of self-doubt and self-pity I sensed the Holy Spirit say, “I am your source and your resource. It’s not your effort that wins the day, for the blessing of the Lord brings riches, and he adds no sorrow to it.” Instantly I realised that, no matter how hard I labour; no matter how much enthusiasm I attempt muster to do the job, without God’s blessing it will come to nought.

Success is the consequence of God’s blessing. The blessing of the Lord is your source of joy, purpose and accomplishments. Seeking the blessing of God means seeking his favour, his motivation and his drive for all you do. The blessing of the Lord is his endorsement – his signature – at the bottom of the contract saying, “This work is done in my Name!” The blessing of the Lord relieves you from the responsibility of striving for achievement, because the blessing of the Lord is powered by God’s sufficient grace. And grace is God’s doing! So, let’s stand back and agree with R. C. Chapman today, blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.

GOD-TRACKING IS CALLING ON THE NAME OF JESUS!

Romans 10:13
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Tammy paused as her eyes moistened. Then she continued, “My father would enter my room late at night when the rest of the house was in darkness. Night after night he came.” She drew a deep breath through a sob. Tammy was telling her story of how, from a young age, she was abused by her father. Her mother was an alcoholic and offered no support. At the age of 17 Tammy left home. At a party one night she was introduced to drugs. “For the first time in my life I felt free of the pain. When I was high, I remembered nothing but when I came down again, the depression was overbearing,” she said. Sadly, Tammy became addicted to heroin and contracted Hepatitis B from contaminated needles. Not yet 22, Tammy had no reason to live. Fear, depression, depravity and disease consumed her.

One night, Tammy was planning to take her own life, but she was away from home. Needing a ride back, she’d called her mother. As they drove back to her one-room apartment, an old song was playing on a Christian station on the radio: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face, and the things of the earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace. Tammy now sat, sobbing, on the edge of the bath. She held the grey 9 mill in her hand. But, those words burned within with more intensity than its hot bullet ever could: the things of the earth will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace. “Dear Jesus, help me!” she cried.

A true story I once heard, told by a lovely lady called, Tammy. The grace of God and the love of Christ had won the day, that day when Tammy called on the name of Jesus. She had put the gun down and cried out to the Lord she had learned about in Sunday School. Gradually peace filled her heart and miraculously she was delivered from heroin addiction. God did such a great work in Tammy that she was even healed of Hepatitis B; doctors could find no trace of the virus in her body. Today, Tammy shares the love of Jesus everywhere she goes. She says, “Only one person can change your life, and that’s Jesus.”

The Scriptures tell us, there is no other name by which we can be saved; saved from fear, depression, depravity and disease. It tells us that the name of Jesus Christ is greater than any other name in heaven, on earth or under the earth. Whatever your calamity, whatever your history, whatever your fear, depression, depravity or disease, call on that name, today.

God-tracking is calling on the name of Jesus!

I believe now that there is healing and restoration in that name. I believe now that there is salvation in that name. So, come into my life, Lord Jesus. I am sorry for all my sin and I now completely surrender my life to you. I believe that Jesus died and rose again and I now confess him as Lord of my life. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING CONFIDENT OF WHO LIVES IN YOU

1 John 4:4
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Abraham was called by God to leave his home town of Ur in the land of the Chaldeans and migrate to the land of the Canaanites, which is Israel today. At that time, God revealed himself to Abraham as Lord God Almighty, the all sufficient One, or El Shaddai. Many years after Abraham had settled in his new land, there was a war between several kings in the region, which threatened Abraham’s family. Operating under the blessing of God, against all odds, Abraham was instrumental in conquering these kings. At the end of the battle Abraham was blessed by Melchizedek, king of the city-state, Salem (Jerusalem today). Melchizedek was neutral in the recent battle and a king like none of the other. He was also a priest. In fact, in Genesis 14 Melchizedek is called, priest of God Most High, or El Elyon. Melchizedek was a type of Christ in that he was priest and king.

I believe Abraham enjoyed God’s favour. God had called him to ultimately become the father of the Jews, who brought us the Messiah. Up to this point in his life, Abraham knew God as the all sufficient mighty God. The day he met Melchizedek he discovered God as El Elyon, the God Most High. In battle with the kings, Abraham was outnumbered and outgunned. Yet, he won the fight. Abraham was victorious because the God he served was not only his sufficiency but was also greater than any other god, man or force in the universe. He discovered that his Almighty God was also God Most High! There is none greater, more powerful or more benevolent than El Elyon.

El Elyon is your God, too, if you confess Christ as Lord and Saviour. Through Christ, you have been reconciled to God. Through Christ, you have God dwelling in you as the Holy Spirit. It is no longer you who live but Christ who lives in you. Therefore, you have El Elyon ¬– God Most High –literally resident in your mortal body. You are a temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, whatever you’re facing in life; whatever your enemy brings against you; whatever the odds (like when Abraham fought the kings) know this: greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world! Nothing is greater! He is El Elyon, God Most High, and he lives in you.

God-tracking is being confident of who lives in you.

Thank you that it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. I confess, therefore, that greater is he who lives within me than he who lives in the world. By your grace and power, I will stand strong against the forces of darkness and all that Satan could bring upon me, in the name of Jesus. O God Most High, you are greater than disease, you are greater than confusion, you are greater than depression and every fear the enemy could level against me. I confess, as Melchizedek blessed Abraham, blessed be God Most High, who has delivered my enemies into my hand! Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING ASSURED THAT HE NEVER CHANGES

1 Timothy 1:17
To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God,
be honour and glory for ever and ever Amen.

We’ve been studying the names of God in our church. The Lord our God is known by several names. The most sacred and personal name used in the Old Testament is the name Yahweh (from which we derive the name Jehovah). Moses discovered God as Yahweh when God revealed himself to him at the burning bush saying, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” This name reveals God as sovereign, holy and personal saviour. There are many compound names that use Yahweh or Jehovah to describe the character of God, such as Jehovah-Shalom, Jehovah-Roi and Jehovah-Rapha. However, of all the names for God we find in the Bible, it’s some of the names that start with El that awe me the most. (The term El simply means God.) Of these, the one name that offers me the most comfort is the name El Olam – the Everlasting God.

My parents had a shrub in their garden when I grew up in South Africa called, the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow plant. In the growing season, it would flourish with fragrant flowers. The buds would open revealing a clean white bloom. However, on returning the next day you would notice that the bloom had developed a pale mauve centre. By the time the next day had arrived, it would have turned completely mauve. It takes three days for one bloom to turn from white to mauve. Now, the novelty of this lovely shrub is, it becomes covered in blooms at each stage of transformation. Therefore, on one plant you would find dazingly white flowers and pale mauve flowers and deep mauve flowers. Hence its common name, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Listen to God’s Word: “’I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty,’’” (emphasis is mine). Just as on one Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow shrub we simultaneously find three blooms in their three stages of development, so the Lord our God, whose name is El Olam, is and was and is to come, simultaneously.

El Olam is not temporal or time restrained. El Olam is not mortal. El Olam is King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God! He has no beginning and no end. If you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and acknowledge God in all your ways then you can stand sure today in the knowledge that you are completely safe in him. Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever. Your God is already in your tomorrow, meeting your needs and preparing your path. He is dependable, consistent and faithful. What he has promised, he will do! Nothing can surprise El Olam, because he knows all things. He knows your yesterday, he knows your today and he knows your tomorrow. He is the Everlasting God; he will sustain you.

God-tracking is being assured that he never changes.

GOD-TRACKING IS NOT GIVING UP AFTER THE FIRST HALF

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 was engrossed in the match, watching the rugby team I support being beaten in the first half of the game. They’d gone into halftime at the score of 0 – 21. But Rugby is a game of two halves. In the second half, our guys had got it together and thrashed their opponents, 33 – 21! Come on! Just when I thought all was lost, my team came back in the second half of the game and won the match!

I don’t know if Jesus enjoyed sport but I do read of one occasion when he and his family attended a wedding. In Bible times and in Jewish culture, weddings were big events. Sometimes the celebrations would go on for days. As with modern day weddings, it was important to ensure the catering was adequate for the event. This wedding had probably been going on for some time, however, the hosts had under catered; they had run out of wine. Jesus’ mum hears the servants nattering and, after mentioning the dilemma to Jesus, turns to them and says, “Do whatever he tells you.” Jesus called for six large stone water jars and instructed the servants to fill them with water. “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast,” Jesus said. Miraculously the plain water had been turned into excellent wine. The wedding host called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, but you have kept the good until last.” Just when they thought all was lost, Jesus came back in the second half of the feast and won the day.

The Lord has a plan for your life. Though you may feel you’ve not seen any significant results, I tell you, the game is not yet over. You see, I don’t believe God gives us second chances; I believe God gives us new beginnings. The whistle has blown. It’s kick-off into the second half and you’re headlong into winning the match. God has a new beginning for you; the best is yet to come! Play with all your might and watch how Jesus will turn your game around. Jesus can turn your water into wine. Jesus can turn your mediocrity into excellence. So, continue to acknowledge the Lord in all your ways and go on to win the game.

God-tracking is not giving up after the first half

“O Lord, I feel as though I have lost the game. I have been serving you for so many years but don’t seem to see the results. I know that in you, my labour is never in vain. And yet, I feel there’s more to come. Take my work; take my relationships take my ambitions and help me achieve what you purpose for me. I repent of all wrongdoing and failure and seek you for a new beginning. Just as the wine that Jesus created in the second half of the wedding at Cana was better than the wine served in the first half, so I believe you have saved the best for last, in my life. I acknowledge in all I do and trust you will turn my mediocrity into excellence. Amen.”

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 track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
