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?”

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.

Come into my life, Lord Jesus, as I give my life to you

“Holy God, I admit it, I was born into sin. I confess that I have sinned and come short of your righteousness. I am sorry for my sin, O Lord. I now believe that Jesus, the sinless One, died in my place to take the punishment for my sin. And I believe that he rose from the dead, to free me from the clutches of sin and death. I now call on your name, Lord and put my faith in Christ. I confess him as Lord of my life. Come into my life, Lord Jesus, as I give my life to you. Amen.”

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!

“My Lord, thank you for the many doors you have opened to me in my life. Thank you for all your blessings and opportunities. Yet, sometimes I find myself in a hallway, facing many closed doors, not knowing which door to push open. I do acknowledge you in all my ways, O Lord, so help me to hear your voice and follow your bidding in making the most of these opportunities, with all wisdom. I give my future to you and choose to praise you here in the hallway, as I wait for you to open the next door in my life. Amen.”

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

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.

“O Lord, El Elyon, thank you for reconciling me to yourself through the intercession of Jesus. Thank you that I am forgiven and redeemed by the blood of Christ. 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.

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.”

When I was a teenager I used to sing a song written by Andre Crouch, whose chorus line goes: “Jesus is the answer for the world today, above him there’s no other, Jesus is the way.” It’s a great old gospel number that impacted my life at the time. For some reason, this song came to mind again this week. The old voice is a little shaky but I gave it a try. Coming to the second verse I paused: “I know you got some mountains that you think you cannot climb.”

Abraham was very old and frail. Warily, he laboured up the mountain, as stabs of pain gripped his aged joints. His promised son, Isaac perhaps 10 to 12-years old, sprang youthfully from rock to rock as they climbed higher. Obediently the man of faith had set out to follow God’s command to offer his only son as a sacrifice to him. I could imagine, to old Abe, that mountain must have seemed the highest and most gruelling mountain he’d ever climbed.

Sobbing and lumbering the old man drags himself to the summit of his mountain. With tear streaked cheeks, Abraham prepares the alter and binds his son. The boy might have been screaming and writhing to escape the old man’s grip as his father lifted him onto the wood. Raising a frail arm, Abraham prepares to thrust a knife deep into his promised son. Just then: “Abraham, Abraham! Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God.” An angel’s voice. Looking up, Abraham sees a ram caught in a bush. Tears of relief and joy now as he unbinds his son. “This place shall be called, ‘The LORD will provide,’” said Abraham. And so, it is said, “On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided.”

I know you’ve got some mountains that you think you cannot climb. But, like Abraham, I know too, that God has not abandoned you. His Word is true and he will fulfil all that he has promised. Sometimes God calls us to climb high mountains but, as Rees Howells wrote in his book, Intercessor, “Deliverance is always found on the mount; living faith must first prove to God that it has taken his word and promise for victory.” Jesus is your answer. Above him there’s no other.

God-tracking is climbing those mountains in faith that God will provide.

“Dear God, it seems like I am climbing a high rocky mountain at the moment, with steep cliffs on both sides of the path. I feel as though, if I put one foot wrong, I’m going to fall. But, I know you are with me. These needs seem overwhelming but I know you are my provider. Help me to obey you and be ready to make the sacrifices you ask for.

GOD-TRACKING IS RESTING CONTENTED, AT THE TABLE OF THE LORD

Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies… my cup overflows.

Are you stressed out? Does it feel like your cup is running low? Stress has a way of turning any reasonable person into a bear with a sore head. Sometimes workloads overwhelm us to the extent that we feel like we’re an expanding balloon being pumped up until… pop! One symptom of stress is fatigue. Fatigue has a way of dragging one so low that he can hardly lift his head off the pillow in the morning. But I suggest, stressed is nothing more than desserts, spelled backwards.

I love to sit down to a good full course meal with my lovely wife. And a good dinner can never be rushed. A well matured steak needs to be eaten slowly. I do enjoy a hearty dinner. However, my favourite part of the whole meal has to be the dessert. After a pleasant starter and a full main course, I may feel too full to eat any more, but there’s always room for dessert.

A Scripture that has always alleviated my stress levels is Psalm 23. It reminds me that the Lord, whose name is Jehovah Rohi, is my shepherd. That is, Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd, laid his life down under the most intense stressful conditions anyone could ever imagine, only to bring me peace. Through Jesus, Jehovah Rohi has prepared a table for me in the presence of my enemies.

Today, if you feel stress is your enemy, I suggest you sit down at God’s table, laden with wonderful desserts, and allow him to fill your cup to overflowing.

God-tracking is resting contented, at the table of the Lord.

“My Lord and God, you are called Jehovah Rohi – the LORD my Shepherd. Today I need your shepherding. I feel like I’m a sheep gone astray and need to find my way back to your table of peace. I’m stressed out and tired. I feel as though I’ve run low on fuel and need to be refilled. My life is overwhelming; Lord, fill me up to overflowing! I rest at the table you have prepared for me in the presence of my enemies. Lord, turn my “stressed” moments into lavish “desserts,” by your grace. Thank your meeting my needs and thank you for relieving my burdens. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS RESTING IN HIS FOREKNOWLEDGE OF THE FINAL SCORE




Romans 8:29
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

Welcome to new subscribers of GodTracker. This e-devotional, published at godtracker.co.uk and via several online blogs, enjoys a vast readership. The concept of God-tracking developed from a radio show I once produced called, On Track. This show was broadcast across central-southern Africa via FM, shortwave and the Internet. For many years it enjoyed a listenership in the millions. It was back in 2003 when a listener of On Track asked me to send him a hardcopy of the content of the show by e-mail that e-devotional, GodTracker was born.

God-tracking has at its core the concept of seeking and tracking the plans of God for our lives. The Bible makes it clear that God does have a plan for each of us and that we are called according to his purposes. In Proverbs, we are told to acknowledge the Lord in all our ways and so to trust him to direct our paths, that is, or our life tracks! When we acknowledge God, we are recognising his knowledge of us and his foreknowledge of our futures.

I watched Joanna Konta play Simona Halep in the 2017 Wimbledon quarterfinals. What a great match! It was match point and Konta was poised to serve. Great serve! Good backhand return by Halep but after a very short rally, Halep put the ball into the net. Konta had won the match! I was so enthralled with that last rally I rewound the show to Konta’s last serve. There she was again, poised to serve for the match. However, it dawned on me that I now knew she would win. I paused my TV. Suddenly I realised the meaning of the scripture that says, “For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son.”

The Lord knows all about you. He knows your past, your present and he has foreknowledge of your future. This means that he is already in your tomorrow preparing your paths in life. As you stand poised to serve for the match, understand this, your Lord already knows the final score. Even though you still need to play that final shot, Jesus is already on the podium with you, raising the trophy. So, fix your eyes on Jesus, author of your faith. Set your mind on things above not on earthly things, where God has already traced your track. Therefore, rise up today and play with all your might! In Jesus, the score is already game, set and match!

God-tracking is resting in his foreknowledge of the final score.

GOD-TRACKING IS THANKING GOD FOR TOMORROW’S NEEDS MET, TODAY

GOD-TRACKING IS THANKING GOD FOR TOMORROW’S NEEDS MET, TODAY

Philippians 4:6
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God

It is written in God’s Word that God desires to meet our needs and grant us the desires of our hearts. On several occasions Jesus tells us to ask in his name and we will receive. Prayer is simply talking to God - talking to him about our needs. Writing to the Philippians, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, Paul says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” It’s a great privilege to be permitted to pray to God in Jesus’ name, requesting that he meet our needs. However, the key word here is, thanksgiving.

With deep reverence, I think prayer is a bit like ordering a meal in a restaurant. You sit down at the table where you are presented with a menu. The menu contains a list of items you can order for your meal. It is your authority to make a request of the waiter. If you’re like me you’d meditate on the menu for some time before deciding what you want. Then, when the waiter returns to your table you make your request according to what is written. “I’ll have a pepperoni pizza with a salad on the side,” you tell the waiter, who notes your request. Then, immediately after you place your order you say, “Thank you.” You have made your request according to what was written, with thanksgiving.

At this point the waiter toddles off to the kitchen to process your request. Now, in some restaurants you may need to wait a long time for the meal to arrive, in others it may come very quickly. The truth be told, you have no idea when that pizza will arrive. Indeed, it could take 10 minutes, 30 minutes or 45 minutes to arrive, but, since you had faith in both the waiter and the kitchen, you placed your order with thanksgiving, believing that you would receive that for which you asked. When the waiter finally returns and places that steaming aromatic pepperoni in front of you, once again you say, “Thank you.”

I have learnt to thank God for my needs. No longer do I perpetually ask the Lord in prayer, I now thank God in prayer for the answer to my request, even before the answer occurs. We have three reasons to be thankful when making our requests to God by prayer and supplication: 1) thankful that he is willing to hear my request, 2) thankful that he has the power to meet my needs and 3) thankful that he has answered my prayer even before I receive the answer. God is beyond the limit of space and time; he encompasses space and time! Therefore, he is there already at the point where your need is met, the moment you prayed. All that is required is for you to wait for time to catch up with the answers to your prayers. So, pray with thanksgiving, in the present, that your needs are already met, in the future.

God-tracking is thanking God for tomorrow’s needs met, today

I choose not to worry about my needs and pray according to what is written in your Word, with thanksgiving, that you will meet all my needs according to your riches in Jesus. I believe that you are already on the other side of this wall that I face. You are already there with the answers to my prayers. In faith, I place myself in your hands and wait patiently for my needs to be met. Thank you for answering my prayers. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS REFUELLING YOUR TANKS THROUGH PRAYER

Psalm 23:3
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

A wick in an oil lamp will shine brightly for as long as it is fuelled by oil. If the oil is not topped up, you will notice the wick itself beginning to burn and smoulder. Soon the effect of light given out by the oil lamp begins to fade and wick eventually turns to ash, no longer of any use. So it is with any soul who burns vibrantly for the purposes of God without replenishing their fuel.

The Bible is packed with references pointing to the need for rest and replenishment. For instance, Jesus himself frequently drew away from the crowds to be alone with the Father in prayer. Notice how he spent time alone with God the Father to refill his oil pot. It was in the stillness of submission to God that the Son of Man restored his strength and purpose.

The presence of God in prayer is your fuel reserve. If you find yourself burning the candle at both ends, it may be time to draw away in prayer to rest. It’s in prayer that we are told to present our anxieties to the Lord with thanksgiving. It’s in prayer that we restore a peace that passes understanding. And it’s through pray that we cast our cares on the Lord. Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” How else do we come to Jesus, but in prayer?

God-tracking is refuelling your tanks through prayer

READ ALL ABOUT ITPsalm 62:5-8Mark 6:45-46Philippians 4:6-7Matthew 11:28-30

Thank you for refuelling my tanks. In you I rest

“Oh Lord, I’m tired! I’ve had a time of it and I feel I just can’t go on. So, I choose to come to you in prayer and cast my cares upon you. I’m heavy laden, O Lord, give me rest. I confess that you are my source and my resource – the source of my strength and the resource for my purpose. Give me wisdom to deal with my workload and responsibilities. Thank you for your peace. Thank you for your replenishment. Thank you for refuelling my tanks. In you I rest. Amen”

GOD-TRACKING IS ABOUNDING IN HIS PREDESTINED PURPOSES, IN REPENTANCE

Ephesians 1:11
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will

God-tracking is all about seeking and following the purposes of God. One of the key verses for this thought is found in Jeremiah chapter 29. Verse 11 tells us that God knows the plans he has for us and verse 13 says, “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” To me, this confirms that God has foreknowledge of our lives. He is omniscient, that is, he knows all things. Yet, we must seek his will.

Jesus and his disciples had just finished eating the Passover. Judas had already left to follow-through with his scheme to betray Jesus. As they prepared to walk to the Mount of Olives Peter boldly tells Jesus that he would die for him. Perhaps Jesus took Peter by the arm and looked him in the eye. “I tell you, Peter, the cock will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.” Later that night after Jesus had been arrested and taken to the High Priest’s home, when confronted, Peter denied his Lord, three times. When he realised what he’d done, Simon went out into the cold night and wept bitterly.

This sad story reveals how Jesus knew, beforehand, that Peter would deny him. Yes, God even knows when and how I will sin. In his foreknowledge, the Lord’s plan was to deal with our sin. Later, after Jesus had risen from the dead, he graciously forgave and reinstated Simon Peter, who becomes the first great leader of his Church.

You can never disappoint God. He knows everything about you, even your shortfalls. However, this gives you and me no licence to sin! But, when we do sin, we need to hastily admit to our sin, in repentance. If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just (justice was done at Calvary) to forgive us and cleanse us from all sin. In his foreknowledge, God has forgiven you. In his foreknowledge, God has blessed you in Christ with every spiritual blessing. In his foreknowledge, God has predestined you for great things according to the purposes of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.

God-tracking is abounding in his predestined purposes, in repentance

I claim the promises of your Word…every spiritual blessing to fulfil your great purposes in me according to the counsel of your will

“Heavenly God, I realise that you know all things about me. You know my coming and going; you know my ups and downs and you know my rights and my wrongs. Dear Lord, I confess my sin – I admit to my wrongs – in repentance. Though I know that you knew I would sin, yet I seek your forgiveness and turn my back on all I’ve done that has grieved you. I claim the promises of your Word; promises that you will bless me with every spiritual blessing and fulfil your great purposes in me according to the counsel of your will. Amen!”

GOD-TRACKING IS BEING WILLING TO BE PLANTED BY THE LORD

Isaiah 61:3
… they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

I used to be an avid gardener. I’d rise early on a Saturday morning to go out into the garden and begin weeding, planting, cutting and digging until sunset. Gardening can be very tiring but also very therapeutic. Though my dear wife, Karen is the chief gardener in my home these days, I still love the satisfaction I feel when I stand back at the end of a hard day’s labour and admire the beauty of a manicured garden.

Father God is a great gardener, too. He planted a magnificent garden at the beginning of time called, Eden. We read that God probably enjoyed the same satisfaction we do at the end of a day in the garden. The Bible says he walked with man in the cool of the day. Unfortunately, man rejected God’s fellowship and ended up being excluded from Eden. However, in his immaculate wisdom and love, God reconciled man to himself through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus, the sinless one, became sin for us so that, in him, we could become oaks of righteousness, and so walk with God again in the cool of the day.

Because of what Jesus did for you, your life has become like Eden. The Lord desires to walk with you and fellowship with you as he did with Adam. He desires for you to pour your heart out to him so that he can get-in-there do some weeding, digging and watering. The Lord has great plans for you, just as my lovely wife has for our garden. He may wish to landscape your life by digging up old ground and reshaping your garden beds, filling them with gorgeous blooms. At the end of every season he will cut you back and prune your branches so that you will bear double the fruit next year. You may even find that Father God may pick some of the lovely flowers growing in your garden to light up the life of someone else, in need of cheer. Your God is an avid gardener. Allow him to turn your dry patch into an award-winning masterpiece, that he may be glorified.

God-tracking is being willing to be planted by the Lord

2 Corinthians 5:16-21


In Christ, I am an oak of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to his glory

“Dear Father God, I submit to your expert hand today. I desire for you to weed out the unwanted parts of my life and plant the crop of your choice in its place. Dear Chief Gardener, landscape my life so that I will be shaped according to your plan and not my own. I desire to walk with you in the cool of the day. I desire to pour out my heart to you and, as I do, I know you will meet my needs, cure my ills and shape my life according to your blueprint. In Christ, I am an oak of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to his glory. Amen.”

GOD-TRACKING IS SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH HIS EYES

Psalm 139:1
O LORD, you have searched me and known me!

My children and I were lying on our backs on the grass gazing up at the Milky Way on a night black canvas of clear sky. Myriad stars blinked and glistened, light years above us. “Spectacular, isn’t it?” I said. The mesmerised star gazers made no comment. “Do you know that we are on the edge of our galaxy looking back into it at about 200 billion stars spanning a distance of about 100,000 light years? This means the twinkle of that little star over there,” I said pointing to a speck of cosmic glitter far away, “is coming to us from tens of thousands of years in the past.”. “You’re gazing across space and time, beyond your wildest imagination.”

God views our lives like that. He can see our beginning and our end in one picture. The Lord sees you for who you are and where you are in all of space and time. God said to John in his vison of the end times, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." Notice the word “and”. God is and was and is to come, all at the same time. In other words, he is outside the bounds of space and time.

Whatever you’re facing today know that God knows all about it. He knows how you got into that mess and he knows how you will get out of it, with his help. In fact, he’s there already on the other side of that wall meeting your every need. God saw you in the womb and he can see you in the tomb. As you acknowledge the Lord in all your ways, he will hem you in, behind and before, and lay his hand upon you.

So, fix your eyes on Jesus, the founder of your faith. Allow him guide you by his Word and his Spirit, moment by moment. Though the Lord can see the whole picture of your life, he is as close to you as your own breath. Trust in God for his help and guidance; trust in him for his deliverance and provision and trust in him for his strength and healing, without leaning on your own understanding. Your God can see the whole picture if you.

God-tracking is seeing your life through his eyes.

Dear God, help me to see my life as you see it

“O Lord, forgive me for taking my life into my own hands. I often forget that you are eternal and immortal. You are the holy God who loves me and has saved me from eternal ruin, through Jesus Christ. I confess now that you have my life in your hands. I admit and confess that you know my beginning from my end and I acknowledge you in ALL my ways, trusting that you will heal me, guide me, provide for me and help me to serve you in every way. I commit to being a God-tracker, tracking your everlasting plans and purposes for my life. Dear God, help me to see my life as you see it. 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 track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
