The six teenagers were lying on their 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 them. "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 in at about 200 billion stars spanning a distance of about 100,000 light years? This means that little star's twinkle over there is tens of thousands of years in the past." I said pointing to a speck of cosmic glitter far away. "You're gazing across space and time, beyond your wildest imagination."
From where these teenagers were lying on the earth's grass, they could almost see the whole Milky Way galaxy. It was as if they were looking at the whole picture. 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 how you are and where you are in space and time. Listen to Revelation 1:8: "'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, 'who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.'" Notice the word "and". God is, was and is to come all at the same time. In other words, he is outside the bounds of time.
Whatever you're facing today know that God knows. 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. Just step back and let him guide you by his Word and his Spirit, day by day and year by year. Though the Lord can see the whole picture of your life, he is as close to you as your own breath. If you continue to acknowledge God in all your ways you can trust his course for you. God can see your life's big picture.
God-tracking is seeing your life through his eyes.
Our hope is that, by sharing experiences in tracking the will of God, we will draw closer to him and discover the awesome value of walking with God. Let us know what you think by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org God knows the plans he has for you. So go ahead and track them!
What is trACker?

According To Your Foreknowledge of My Life
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son
"O my God I know now that you see my beginning from my end. Help me through this difficult time I am going through. You know all there is to know about me and I believe that my times are in your hands. I commit my ways to you and acknowledge you in all I am, all I do and all I know. Help me to rest in your knowledge of my life's track and help me to follow your purposes every day, by faith. Take care of my loved ones and their futures and take care of my future, O Lord. Design my path and lead me in it according to your foreknowledge of my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
