The Cause of Acknowledging God Has the Effect of Discovering His Plans for My Life
Causality is a term that describes the relationship between an event and its consequence, or second event. In other words it's the results of an action, decision or confession. For example, the causality of eating too many sweets as a child is bad teeth as an adult. Some philosophies and religions use causality to describe karma or fate. But as a Christian, my causality does not depend on fate but upon faith resulting in the plans and purposes of God in my life.
The word of God tells us to acknowledge the Lord in all we do. This means that we should recognise our Father's hand upon everything in our lives from career choice and relationships to my daily to-do list. We acknowledge God through prayer and confession. That is, when we commit every second of every day and every iota of every decision to him in prayer and then go about telling others that we have done so. When we acknowledge the Lord in all our ways we recognise his knowledge of who we are and submit our plans to his foreknowledge of our lives. The result of doing this is God will direct our paths (check out Proverbs 3:6). And after acknowledging the Lord in all we do we walk in faith not fate in his purposes without leaning on our own understanding. The cause of acknowledging God has the effect of discovering his plans for my life.
God-tracking is walking by God's cause and effect.
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?
GodTracker and trACker owe their origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, OnTrack. Although OnTrack went off-air in 2005, trACker has continued to help people to track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.

It Is You Who Determines My Steps
In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
"Dear Father, I'm sorry for making my plans without recognising your hand in my life. I choose now to acknowledge you in each and every area of my life my relationships, my career, my church life, my hobbies, my TV watching, the books I read and even in my daily to-do lists. I give you every plan I have for the future. I pray that you will direct the course of my life, day by day. I employ a Godly causality by giving you the causes in my life and trusting you to produce your effects upon me and my loved ones. I know I can trust your foreknowledge and therefore, lean not on my understanding but walk in faith that you will direct every outcome of every decision I make. Lord, I confess that it is you who determines my steps. Amen."
