Dear God Tracker

Fixed on God's Track like a Gyroscope Spinning in Space and Time

Like most kids, I had a bicycle when I was younger. I loved my bike and would often take the wheels off when I was cleaning it. I discovered that if I held a wheel by the axle nuts between my hands and gave it a good spin it would become rigid in its position and be very difficult to swing left or right. Effectively, my bike's wheel between my fingers was acting like a gyroscope.

A gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. When a gyroscope is fixed in a pivoted support that allows its rotation about a single axel (like my bike's wheel between my fingers) its direction remains nearly fixed, regardless of any motion of the support on which it is mounted. In other words, a spinning gyroscope will remain perfectly fixed in its direction of spin irrespective of an external force. This makes it very useful in aircraft instruments.

God's word is the gyroscope of your life. It spins around the fixed axis of God's plans and purposes for you, rigid in his way. When you acknowledge the Lord in all your ways you allow his word to direct you like the gyroscopic compass of the space shuttle. By fixing your eyes on Jesus and remaining in his word you too will become fixed on God's track like a gyroscope spinning in space and time.

God-tracking is remaining rigid in his word.

Every blessing

What is trACker?

Verse of the Week

Psalm 114:8(a)
But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge

Quote of the Week
A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes.

"We are not called to live by human reason. All that matters is obedience to God's word and his leading in our lives. If God says go, we'll go. If he says stay we'll stay. When we are in his will, we are in the safest place in the world." --- Brother Yun

Don't Give-up, Look-up!
Look-up and Fix Your Eyes On Jesus!

Be the Lamp to My Feet

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

"My Father God, thank you for the solid perfection of your word and thank you for giving me your word through Jesus and the Bible. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who watches over your word in my life to perform it. Today I submit to the direction of your word so that I may remain rigid in your will like a gyroscope in an aircraft compass. Help me to be fixed on your God track for my life and keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, always. Help me to remain rigid when opposition comes my way, because I have fixed my orientation upon your purposes, O Lord. And if my path becomes murky and dim before me, then be the lamp to my feet. Amen."
